With only 10 bar height chairs at the cocktail bar, the COMMIS BAR experience offers a fixed 4-course menu highlighting some the best seasonal Northern California ingredients through modern and classic cooking techniques.

Our fine-dining restaurant has long been the cornerstone of Farmhouse Inn. Fueled by ingredients straight from Joe and Catherine Bartolomei's ranch or discovered by Chef Craig Wilmer on his daily farm stops en route to the inn, our menus are ever-changing and rely exclusively on not only what is fresh and seasonal in Sonoma County, but on what is perfect, unexpected and delightful.

Our service is friendly yet infinitely professional and sophisticated, carefully orchestrated down to the smallest detail. The wine program offers opportunities to experience not just the finest wines of the Sonoma and Napa wine country, but those most perfectly suited to complement the dining experience we strive to create.
Let us take you on a culinary journey, bite-by-bite, through the beautiful terroir of Sonoma County.

This was so close to being a 5 star experience. The atmosphere, service, and food quality were all excellent. The trouble is the interpretation of dishes. When I order a classic dish, I like less creative liberty. The Caesar salad was “made tableside” but really they rolled whole leaves in dressing and served with two large croutons. Lobster bisque had no cream and if that was lobster, it was old and rubbery. The French onion soup had huge mushrooms in it. Finally the beignets were more like beer bread with sugar. I wanted to like it more…but I didn’t. The steak and bearneise sauce was excellent.

Went for lunch to Fitoor today and I was blown away by the ambiance and decor. The restaurant had a beautiful and cozy atmosphere, with dim lighting and comfortable seating. The staff was incredibly friendly and attentive, making sure that we had everything we needed. The menu offered a wide variety of dishes, everything we ordered was delicious. Presentation was impeccable, and every bite was a delightful explosion of tastes and textures. I will definitely be returning to Fitoor for another amazing dining experience.
