reinventing our romantic dining experience

Outdoor dining is available all winter. We have a tent over our garden, and heaters at every table. Please remember to bring warm cloths for outdoor dining.  And even a blanket.

Holiday Schedule: We are planning to do Thanksgiving Dinner for sure. But haven’t gotten as far as the Christmas holiday’s yet. Depends on the ever changing health orders. But will update as we make our decision.

We are now open Friday through Tuesday CLOSED WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY, for dine-in, picnic boxes or take out.  We have expanded our outdoor dining (more details below)! We’re serving lunch and dinner 11:30 am to 2:30 pm and 5 to 8:30.

For Take Out orders and Picnic Boxes, we are  offering our Wine List to go at a 40% discount! When ordering online, use coupon code WINE20 for the Discount!!!

CLOSING SCHEDULE: We always close for a winter break between Thanksgiving and Christmas. This year we are doing the same. Closed November 30 – December 17. We have had a very busy season, and our staff is in need of some time to relax.

covid-19 update

Trillium is one of few restaurants in Mendocino offering reservations and dine-in with table service, at this time. Many restaurants never opened sit down dining. Our staff is wearing facial coverings, we are sanitizing all the tables, chairs, and menus in between guests. Hand sanitizer is available at each table, and at each entrance.  Facial coverings are required when coming inside the restaurant, and when ordering and interacting with our staff. Thank you!

Phone Calls: We are having an unexpectedly high volume of phone calls at this time—so many that we aren’t always able to answer the phone or to keep up with returning calls. We will do our best to return your call. It is recommended to reserve your table online. If you have questions, please email

We also have a brand new capability for our customers to place their orders online! To place your order, follow this link to our secure online ordering portal: Trillium Cafe Online Ordering

new at trillium: picnic boxes and expanded outdoor dining

Take a picnic with the Trillium picnic box

We have updated our garden to allow for outdoor dining. We’ve made our new dining room in our garden. We now have 13 outdoor tables in the garden, with lots of separation between tables. You will be able to enjoy a delicious meal and view of the ocean in our garden, confident that your comfort, safety, and satiety are our top concerns. Reservations are recommended. Each table has a heater, but bring jackets, a blanket and maybe a hat, as Mendocino’s weather can be unpredictable.

We are excited to bring you our picnic boxes, which can be filled with items from our menu! Fully sanitized picnic boxes will include a table cloth, napkins, silverware, wine glasses, wine opener, dishes, and map to local places to enjoy the picnic. Find out more about our picnic boxes here.

We hope you remain safe and well and enjoy being well-fed with our beautiful and delicious food!
