April 19, 2013, Kenwood. Hi Chef. We are having an absolutely wonderful time in Sonoma Valley. Here's what we wanted to say about our private dinner at Casa Verde.
Our private dinner at Casa Verde was hands down one of the most special meals of our lives. Each course was very delicious, made with organic ingredients, and paired fabulously with local wines. This was just the type of meal we envisioned for celebrating our honeymoon, and Chef did a fantastic job of exceeding our expectations! We highly recommend this dinner for anyone wanting to celebrate a special occasion.

"Thanks you so much for a most enjoyable luncheon for the six of us last
Thursday. The Tapas you selected were wonderful-your grilled artichokes are
truly the "world's best"! Patti and my pasta dish was so incredible-light,
melt in your mouth-while the vegetables and sauce surpassed our
expectations. Zucchini never had it so good!
"The essence of Sonoma County dining: A family operated restaurant offering unique homemade specialties featuring fresh, local (mostly organic) ingredients simply and artfully prepared." - Duane Selander
"The Vineyards Inn is a quintessential yet unique wine country restaurant that features locally grown ingredients. Chef Steve Rose features Spanish inspired tapas with a touch of Californian flare. The freshest seafood, perfectly grilled meats, and flavorful vegetable dishes complete the creative menu. Diners can chose from a variety of California wines, often from a winery just down the road. The bar also serves up sangria, cocktails, and all your favorite beers in a comfortable "small town" atmosphere." - Chef Umit Ozkaya

"The Vineyards Inn has been a favorite of mine for many, many years. Chef Esteban keeps the menu lively and refreshed and never gets stuck for new ideas. The bar is well stocked and the friendly camaraderie of the staff and regular patrons is a pleasant respite from anyone's busy day." - Ted Leon, Kenwood
"We (my friend Jeff & I) were at your establishment Sunday, Dec 20th, following a very wet hike to the top of Bald Mountain. Your son was taking care of the restaurant in the owners' absence (for birthdays!). We LOVED the place, and were thrilled to have the fire stoked up so we could dry out, find a great glass of wine, and devour several of your tapas. Delicious! We will be back". - Sandra Price.
"Las mejores Gambas al Ajillo del mundo eran las del bar El Caserio, en la parte vieja de Pamplona, España. En 1999. Mi primo Steve me vino a buscar al trabajo y salimos a dar la vuelta. Era obligatorio para nosotros hacerlos probar las Gambas. Les gustaron y las reinterpreto en su carta de Vineyards Inn. En 2007 fuimos a Kenwood a verlos y probe las Gambas al Ajillo en el Vineyards Inn y me rei! Estaban mas agradables y sabrosos y eran mas baratas!
Open daily except Tuesdays.
"Chef's Basque dinner fun …"
