    Chef John does an excellent job with the menu pairings every time we visit. Food is always outstanding. Anna and Bj are great as well. They are both not only very knowledgable about the different wines that Mayo serves, they are also super friendly. Feels like you’re dining with family. By far our favorite winery to visit. Highly recommend.

    The wine and food pairing at Mayo Reserve Room is an experience you can’t pass up. The food prepared by Chef John is not only creative and beautiful, but tastes delicious and is paired with the wines expertly. Ann, the Reserve Room manager, is knowledgeable, informative, kind, and friendly. We are club members from a while back, but became members specifically because of the exceptional wine and food experience at the Mayo Reserve Room. It’s not to be missed!

    The wine isn’t good. The food pairings are ok, but ultimately overpriced for what they are.

    Mayo Reserve Room - Mayo Family WineryResponded on November 15, 2022Thank you for responding! I'm not sure if you were having a bad day or not, but everyone else who visited that same day were extremely complimentary... in fact, two other guests left 5-star reviews. With regards to the value, have you ever done a Wine & Food Pairing before? I assure you our experience is *the most* value-priced experience in all of Wine Country; in fact, no other experience is less expensive. We'd love it if you would give us another chance with an open mind... Cheers!

    The service was outstanding! The chef and staff gave detailed descriptions of the wine and food pairings. The space is intimate and can be noisy if there are guests that are loud. Perhaps adding some decor to absorb sound would help. Overall a fun experience that is worth the drive out to Kenwood!

    The staff here are amazingly friendly and attentive. The pairing of the wines with food is done expertly. The food enhances the best characteristics of the wine, and the wines make the food even more flavorful. We are vegan and they made us 7 courses of the most exquisite food. This is a must-go for any wine lovers.

    What a great experience!! Small winery but mighty wines, especially the estate chard. That one is totally unique. Chef John's food sampling is world class. IMO he should be in an upscale Manhattan restaurant of his own. Service impeccable and friendly. Wonderful atmosphere, inside and out. Highly recommend!!

    The wine and food pairing is a must do! Ann was very knowledgeable about the wines and how they paired and complimented each dish. I especially liked her history lesson about the winery, family and region. The food was outstanding. The Chef created some truly unique dishes that made each taste of wine even better than it was on its own.

    MUST STOP in the area. Value is tremendous , every dish is perfectly paired with a great wine. You will NOT regret it once you get past the fact it’s a much smaller vineyard and the views/ambience may not be what you’re expecting from a “big vineyard” in the Santa Rosa area. Trust me, book This place, you won’t regret it.

    Ann and VJ took really great care of our party of four. The tapas style food pairings were amazing and the Mayo wines we tasted were outstanding. We really enjoyed the personal touch we received from both Ann and VJ. This is one of the rare food pairing experiences in the Glen Ellen area. Make sure to take advantage of it.
