a note about dinner reservations

Thank you for dining with us! We have a lovely garden setting for all of our outdoor dining, and a limited amount of indoor tables as well. If you note your preference we will do our best to accommodate. The reservations made the day of can’t always be guaranteed garden seating.

During the pandemic many local restaurants had to shut their doors for good. As a result, those of us who are lucky enough to have stayed in business are finding ourselves booked to maximum capacity most nights and we need to seat tables multiple times in an evening to accommodate the demand. So that you can know what to expect, and out of courtesy to others who have reservations following yours, here is the seating time we plan for each size dinner party:
2 people: 1.5 hours
4 people: 2 hours
6 + people: 2.5 hours

dining at trillium: reinventing the romance

indoor & outdoor dining available

Picnic boxes to-go, indoor & outdoor dining under the garden tent, and plenty of space! Trillium has reinvented our entire operation to better serve and protect our community during Covid. We are offering both indoor and outdoor dining at this time, so when making a reservation, please specify inside or outside. We will do our best to accommodate. Reservations are necessary for dinner and a good idea for lunch also.

Outdoors: We have 15 outdoor tables in the garden, with lots of separation between tables. The garden is tented and each table has a heater. Please remember to bring jackets, a blanket, and maybe a hat, as Mendocino’s weather can be unpredictable. Most of our outdoor seating is still available in the rain, as it is covered.

Indoors: In our cozy dining room, we have 8 indoor tables with ample separation. If you want to take Trillium home with you, we also offer sweatshirts and caps.
