Mendocino and vicinity? What's to eat...
Rendezvous Inn, Fort Bragg
Piaci Pizzeria - home of the adult pizza - Fort Bragg
North Coast Brewing Co. - Fort Bragg
Laurel Deli - Fort Bragg
Haven't been eating much in Mendocino lately - Cafe Beaujolais isn't what it used to be, nor is 955 Ukiah. I have heard good things about MacCallum House, but haven't been recently.
But you can't go wrong with the first four.

We always have at least one meal at the Mendocino Cafe when we are in town. Fresh ingredients (some local) in Mexican, American, and Asian inspired dishes. Always been good.
We also like Chapter and Moon in Fort Bragg. Always have breakfast there, but I wanna try dinner and lunch too! Nothing mindblowing there, just good ingredients prepared well. Very relaxed atmosphere right down by the water at the mouth of the river.

The Moosse Cafe is still quite good. We like it especially for lunch, but dinner is good too. The macaroni and cheese at lunch is to die for...and the chocolate pudding which they have lunch and dinner is stuff that dreams are made of.
Mendocino is not a great food town, nor are there any outstanding restaurants in the vicinity. Aside from the Moosse, there are a few pretty good places to eat.
Although yes, the Cafe Beaujolais isn't what it was when it was owned by Margaret Fox and frequented by Julia Child, it still is quite good, and probably the best restaurant in the area.
We also enjoy the Little River Inn quite a lot. It's informal, reasonably priced, and serves consistently rather good food. We've never had a bad meal there. Also, they will pick you up at your hotel, and drive you back...a nice touch if you want to imbibe without worry.
If you have any vegetarians in your group, you might try The Ravens at the Stanford Hotel...it's pretty good if you like that sort of stuff.
955 Ukiah is just ok, and I would not recommend it. Same for the MacCallum House and Mendo Hotel.
