Looking for a child-friendly place for brunch and an upscale place for dinner. Need to take mother-in-law out for 60th birthday. I would appreciate any suggestions you might have for us.

    In Forestville, The Farm House Inn is well-suited for a special occasion.

    Willow Wood Market is a favorite for brunch.

      Melanie, you are truly the Napa/Sonoma food guru! My daughter and son-in-law and grandchildren are presently in the Forrestville area visiting his family. It's his mom's 60 birthday so they want to go for brunch with the kids. Then later for dinner sans kids.

        There's a new place in Forestville, Mosaic, that I haven't tried yet. Here's another thread with more recommendations in the area.

        The Press Democrat reviewed the new, improved Willow Wood on Sunday.

          A couple more ideas,

          here's my post on dinner at K&L Bistro in Sebastopol -

          and if you think the kids are ready to become pool sharks, how about the Casino in Bodega -
