Overpriced

This restaurant has been in place for many years because it puts out very nice food. The quality of the service is excellent. We have been there twice and enjoyed the meals but each time we felt the value due to pricing was low. This can be a moderate to noisy setting. Parking is limited but... read more

They have some great food. The pancakes were burnt each time I ordered them. The bowl of berries is very good. The coffee was very good. If you want to eat on a budget, this is not it. You can pay $20 - $30 per person really easy for a normal breakfast.

We all (6 of us) loved our meals, excellent breakfast! I got the mushroom and spinach omelette, to die for! Great restaurant on the property and service was perfect. I highly recommend this place if you are in the area of the Sonoma Fairmont Mission Inn and Spa!

Stopped in here for a quick weekday lunch for three people. One had the fish tacos, another the dinner Caesar salad, and another at the dinner hot wings. All the food was average and the prices were quite high. Only saving grace is it is in walking distance from the Fairmont being just off of their property. We needed something... More

The Fairmont's diner is located across the parking lot from the main hotel. If you want to have breakfast, you need to leave the beautiful old-world building and go to the Big 3, which has no charm at all and breaks any spell the resort seeks to cast. Best to have room service for breakfast

Good for lunch or breakfast. Had the breakfast burritos and they were very good. A little pricey but hearty servings and good service.

I had the Lemon Cottage Cheese Pancakes and my wife had The Breakfast Burrito on day one and The Breakfast Burrito and the Mushroom, Spinach and Jack Cheese day two. All the food was very flavorful and cooked just perfect. The service was wonderful. Sunday was the busier of the two days and the service was just as quick as... More

Excellent menu for breakfast. Good friendly service and a nice "feel" to the property. The manager was very attentive in watching the tables and service, inquiring if we pleased, etc. We wish the hotel was run half as well as this restaurant

We had breakfast two mornings while staying at the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa. The menu options are excellent and offer people who have diet needs plenty of choices. The staff and service is very good. Staff is helpful and friendly. Eating healthy or giving yourself a treat is an option at Big 3. Highly recommended and plan to... More

I thought the breakfast here was just "ok", had the eggs benedict, which was nothing special. Nice menu though and nice vibe in the restaurant.
