Sonoma county fine dining for vegetarians

Hi all,

I am hoping to find a nice restaurant with a substantial number of vegetarian options on the menu or a good vegetarian tasting menu. I've looked around and most have the standard one vegetarian option. Cost is not really an issue, although I'm not looking for French Laundry prices. Anyone have any experience with an excellent vegetarian dining experience in Sonoma county.

Thanks for your help!

  1. I don't personally - but I do know Cyrus has a vegetarian tasting menu. They are closing in October however.

    1. You might try Campo Fina in Healdsburg, a sister restaurant to Scopa. It's got pizzas and smaller plates, which are generally on the lighter side. Based on when what they were serving when I was there I'd say you could definitely cobble together a meatless feast there, though the menu changes often.

        Could you please say more about your meal (meatless or meated) at Campo Fina? No one has talked about the food yet.

      2. Both of these may be more casual than you want, but they both have good vegetarian selections.

        I thought of taking my vegetarian friend to the new Glen Ellen Star -

        I haven't eaten there yet, so can't tell you much more about it than it's new and small.

        We went to Vineyards Inn in Kenwood and found excellent vegetarian and vegan options -

        If you're coming after mid-August, you'll enjoy their excellent house-grown tomatoes too.

          I like the Vineyard Inn a lot but it's very casual, sort of the opposite of fine dining except for the quality of the ingredients. Very vegetarian- and vegan-friendly.

          1. Thanks for all the suggestions. The vineyard inn looks quite vegetarian-friendly. And Campo Fina looks like a good pizza/small plates place. I guess I should say we are in it for the food, so places with a casual atmosphere and high quality food are perfect.
