Re: “Bitter Is Better

More often than not when we fire up the grill, there is a chicory present. They transform to a tender in places, crisp in others texture with lovely bittersweet flavor.

Re: “Resin D'etre

Had the Waldo last weekend - so good! Only 10oz pours available though... at 11.5% that is probably best. Great piece...

Re: “Triple Shot

Personally, I like the no res rule. It's your restaurant, run it as you will. I had the Tan Tan Ramen. One of the best plates I've ever had in Sonoma County. Ever. Wow. Very nicely done. Will definitely be back... will stand in line... happily.

Re: “Triple Shot

We are enthusiastic local customers that have been in both twice before the reno, and twice since the re-opening.
We have yet to be able to access the Ramen side this year.(2 hour wait, then 90 minute wait for each time respectively), but the no-reservations rule is a mis-step.

We noted while the visit with the 2 hour wait was shown to have both a packed restaurant and bar sides (the first week of re-opening), one week later a 90 minute wait had a virtually empty bar side: 2 folks at the wet bar who eventually got their names called for the Ramen side, and a second couple who left with us after we enjoyed an hour long meal the sampling the awesome bar food menu, this leaving the bar side empty.

Point being, the entire bar, (wet bar, window seats, and the middle bar facing a freezer) was empty by 8:30pm.

Ramen Gaijin has 3 distinct areas of the restaurant: the wet bar (with Window seats), the Ramen side of the restaurant, and then a middle section that straddles both halves of the Restaurant. But the lack of the ability to also serve serve Ramen, at least in the middle 10-stool bar is a mis-step; We would gladly sit there to enjoy the Ramen menu, as I'm sure others would as well when confronted with a very long Ramen-side wait.

Yes, the food is an amazing experience. The drinks too are good, and we will be sure to try their original concoctions on future visits.
But it's the food....you will shake your head in dis-belief that this is available in Sebastopol. (But then again, it's Sebastopol, and we don't need to let the secret out on our jewels.)

We will always come back, the food on both sides is incredible; Sebastopol (no, the entire North Bay) is extremely lucky to have this place to go to. However we worry that the 'no reservations' rule will hurt it, and the limited Ramen seating is just unfortunate. This is apparently because they did not expand the ramen cooking area of the kitchen during the renovation. That's puzzling, as it's called 'Ramen Gaijin', not '1/3 Ramen', or 'Ramen if you're patient'.

Re: “Out of the Fog

One of my absolute favorites in Sonoma County! The Chardonnay opened me up to so much, the Grist Zin has become my guilty pleasure, and the Neighbors Pinot Noir is to die for. Highly recommend a visit to this place. Bring a picnic and sit at their outdoor tables or adirondacks, and play some bocce!

Re: “By the Glass

I find restaurants with Coravin offerings have saved me from drinking either poorly chosen wines by the glass offerings or the aforementioned poorly stored and cared for wines by the glass.
