Farm-to-table or comfort food, oysters or barbecue, Northern California’s eclectic restaurant scene offers all kinds of good eating. With so many options to choose from, it can be hard to pick your next dining destination. To help hungry locals and visitors, travel website Only in Your State has compiled a list of top ten Northern California restaurants based on their Google, TripAdvisor, OpenTable, and Facebook ratings. While some of the highest rated restaurants were a little unexpected (who knew that some of the best burgers in California were hiding at a roadside pit stop in Dunsmuir?), we were not surprised to find a Sonoma County restaurant on the list (we were a little surprised that there wasn’t more than one). Click through the gallery above to find out which Sonoma County and Bay Area restaurants made the cut.
Another surprise: It seems Google, TripAdvisor, OpenTable and Facebook restaurant reviewers (or perhaps Only in Your State) failed to fully recognize San Francisco restaurants – no restaurants in the city were featured on the list. See the full list here.
