The Gate at The Murieta Inn will deliver a unique “farm-to-fork” dining experience, delighting guests staying at the hotel and adding vibrancy to Rancho Murieta’s dining scene. To create our seasonal menus, our Executive Culinary Team artfully utilizes produce from The Inn and Spa’s own Angel Wing Farm, a five acre farm and state-of-the-art greenhouse located on the property. Our Executive Culinary Team works with local ranchers and fisheries to source the restaurant’s meats, poultry and fish to complement the menu’s bright, hearty fare. The Gate will also feature a full bakery program with all of the hotel’s baked delights being crafted on-site.
The Gate beverage program features an extensive wine list, including selections from the nearby Amador and El Dorado wine country, a private bourbon collection and a variety of tap beers from the region’s vibrant craft beer scene. Our cocktails will feature premium spirits enhanced with fruits, flowers and botanicals from Angel Wing Farm.

    We were seated right away outside which I had requested inside on Open Table requests. Our waiter brought water 35 minutes after arrival. He was the Only waiter for all outside tables. He said 5 people called in sick & he was sorry! Food arrived 1 1/2 hrs from the time we got there. Food was okay nothing to brag about. We felt sorry for our waiter. 😓

    The staff and food were wonderful. Christie is the best ! The assistants are all delightful and on task including Anthony. The halibut was done to perfection. Thoroughly enjoyed the Sun Followers as an added delight, and of course “wine down Wednesday” an extra bonus Great experience !!!

    A warm Saturday evening's dinner - a glass of chardonnay wine and a Caesar salad with grilled chicken. Serving staff could have been better deployed - as there were more bus staff than wait staff. Did enjoy the convo that the mansplaining dog owner was having with his date at a table nearby. /s

    The food is flavorless and the portions have changed. I smelt a marijuana smell near bar area towards hallway. Not sure what’s going on with the staff seemed down not very motivated. Very disappointed in overall experience, such a beautiful place.

    Went there for my parents 63rd wedding anniversary and we were all so excited for the prime rib which the online menu said it had specifically on Saturdays and when we got to restaurant it wasn’t being served. Very disappointed. My mashed potatoes were cold with my meal. The people next to us seem to have received different specials. For a 350.00 dinner I wish we were happy after our meal. We come here a lot and will continue to do so just hope things get better.

    We were seated away from bar, however, the woman tending bar was very loud and we heard her talk about former customers and her husband on disability. The food was fantastic, but the big screen TV’s gave it a bar atmosphere. They should turn off the dining room TV, add table cloths for dinner and showcase the 5 star food.

    We had a wonderful dinner outside on the patio. The weather was perfect, our table was ready for us with ice waters already on the table, and the live band, The Sun Followers, was awesome. The food was delicious and they were able to accommodate my food allergies. My kids said their dinners were the BEST EVER! It was a magical evening for me and my family and we can't wait to go back.

    Waiter was very friendly however when our salad was brought out I wanted pepper and no one around to request. 20 minutes later when saw I requested water refill which had been empty awhile. Another waiter after a half hour brought us a salad and we told her we had already received. She was surprised. It was also twice the size of the one we were given first. It took an hour to receive our entrees, they were not hot. The vegetables were hard and fish dry. I asked if they had any drink menu that would be good as a dessert and was told only port. When we walked by the bar there were many selections we could have ordered. We will not be returning. .

    Very dissatisfied pre covid food was great service was grate but they have gone down hill. No real bartender can only make standard drinks. Liquor out of stock. Waitress was confused got orders (2 of them) wrong. No water brought after first glass. Food could have been from Costco. Making me wonder of a chef was still employed. I think now it must just be a cook. Very sorry to see this place go down hill

    We were seated immediately and greeted quickly as well by the wait staff. The appetizer came out quickly. The main course was a little slower. but then again, every time I have dined out the food has been slower than before the pandemic. I chalk it up to staffing issues. The filet was cooked to perfection and was moist and tender. Overall, another great meal here at the gate.

    The chop chop salad had maybe - maybe 1 ounce of chicken. Server never checked in so he lost chance of serving us more wine which we would have ordered and the bread for table was stale. This location has so much potential but corners are being cut for sure.

    We ate here a bunch of times during Feb 2022 and loved it. Last night it took them three times to get my steak cooked correctly and I ended up taking it to go. It took over 5 minutes to get our drinks ordered. The staff is very nice but clearly going through some staffing shortage.

    Our waitstaff was excellent. I have to say we had a "not so easy" customer at our table and they handled it perfectly. The last couple of times I have eated dinner, the food was subpar. For the price, nothing stood out to be exciting and the presentation was basic. Drinks were great with a nice wine and liquor selection.

    Made our reservation for Mother’s Day. On the restaurant website there was zero information of a brunch buffet. Ended up spending $500 for 7 people, two of which were kids. Beautiful place but WAY too expensive especially since we were NOT seated on the patio like I requested. We were sat in an overflow banquet room with zero ambiance. The only good food was the salmon and prime rib. The eggs weren’t cooked thoroughly and runny, quiche looked like a hash brown so I passed and the pancakes and waffles were mushed together and cold. My daughter literally only ate crackers and muffins averaging @ $70 per person. Crazy We would recommend The Gate for dinner IF seated on the patio/ restaurant.

    We are here for the horse show and stopped because the hotel restaurant is close. We arrived at 5:00 pm and ordered appetizers. We ordered food shortly thereafter and weren’t served until 6:15. The chicken Caesar salad was the worst I’ve ever eaten. The salad was soggy and the chicken was not seasoned at all. My friend ordered the filet and it was so flavorless that she ended up dipping it in ranch. The waitress didn’t fill water glasses and didn’t check on the table. Worst food and even poorer service. We will NEVER go back.

    We waited a long time to order, receive and place dessert order. After 2hrs we still were waiting for our dessert. We decided to skip dessert and no tip! Plus the fact another table was served ahead of us. Dirty glasses were a piled near the register and the bar areas. Never have we experienced that there.!maybe a little late but not like that!
