Harbor House

4.7 (146) $$$$ $$$$ Creative, Californian


Summary: A taste of local terroir.

Overlooking the Pacific, Harbor House delivers an immersive dining experience, where the essence of the local environment is captured in every dish. With a focus on sustainability and farm-to-fork practices, the restaurant offers a menu that reflects the wild landscape of the surrounding Mendocino National Forest. The cozy lodge-like setting features local redwood and expansive glass, providing diners with a warm, intimate atmosphere. The menu, led by Matthew Kammerer, showcases a terroir-led tasting experience with options of eight or 12 courses, highlighting foraged and homegrown ingredients. Dishes are infused with New Nordic techniques and flavors, such as barbecued kohlrabi with Douglas fir and campfire butter. The wine list is equally thoughtful, complementing the innovative and hyper-local cuisine.
