A favorite spot for special occasions - the building itself is a treat too. It may not be an official historic building, but it is worth checking out before or after you eat. Applewood Inn is surrounded by orchards and redwoods, so you have a taste of local agriculture (and the fantastic onsite gardens and orchards that contribute to your meal) and the majestic redwoods for which the region is known. The wine (and beer) list is extensive and we appreciate the highly educated recommendations of the servers. One even went into the kitchen and asked the chef which was a better pairing for our meal - what a treat! Food is a blend of high-class California fusion and yummy European epicurean.

Food is good, but nothing spectacular. At least the dish I had wasn't something to remember for days, but there were some that were. The service was exceptional to the very end, very attentive considering it was one person for about a handful of tables. I can see why they have a michelin star.

Start with the Artichoke soup - silky and flavorful; end with the Meyer lemon tart from their new pastry chef. Both surprising and excellent! In between you won't go wrong with any of the starters and entrees. Peculiar corkage policy, but good wine list that ends with a Pride Mountain Vineyards Mistelle de Viognier - just enough Sauvignon Blanc to give the floral layers structure. While you sip, enjoy the fire, architecture and view.

Cute & classy historic inn. We had the best experience with Sylvia in reservations. In the heart of wine country. A little overpriced for the experience, but still a great time.
