Ah-ha - change in ownership - still good

My wife and I were puzzled at the menu being a lot less inspired that we'd known it to be on previous visits. So the change in ownership noted earlier makes sense. Still enjoyable. Still a good wine list. Still a nice outside patio. It just threw us off a bit. Liked our server.

We had dinner and drinks as part of a large group- wedding rehearsal dinner. Super service, every table got it superbly prepared food in an orderly and flawless delivery. The salad was fresh and perfectly dressed, smoked lamb onsite was cooked to perfection and the grilled trout was delicious. Gelato and chocolate cake were the perfect ending combo.

We stopped there during wine touring and glad we did. Very good burgers and service. Sat out in their nice patio overlooking a neighboring winery. Must try after going to Kundy Vineyards across the street.

All of our meals here were gourmet perfect! And we appreciate that their fish is sustainably caught. In fact, the owners are dedicated to providing the finest foods from the finest sources. The servers were delightful, too. You can be confident of having a great experience when you take friends or colleagues to The Kenwood Restaurant for lunch or dinner.... More

This used to be our favorite Sonoma county restaurant. After it changed owners about 18 months ago, I wrote a bad review. Some friends invited us to give it another try after it got a review in the local paper. That was a mistake. Our server was really weak. It took us three requests to get a wine list. On... More

This was our first time back to Kenwood Restaurant since changing ownership. The good news: still has the stunning outdoor patio. One of, if not the nicest in This area. The wine list remains nice with several local offerings. The King Salmon was excellent with a beautiful presentation. The service was very good The bad news: the lunch menu is... More

Changed ownership about a year ago and hasn't been the same quality but I don't think they are targeting the same market. Nice bar as you enter. Good wine selection and the wine steward knows a good deal about the wines he is carrying. The food is not very interesting. They go out of their way to offer a couple... More

We just had burgers and a BLT. It was ok. Nothing special. We were in a hurry on way to airport and just wanted to stop to get something to eat because we had not gone there before.

A venue that used to feel more intimate, all of the features that made it so, have been transformed into a large, cavernous reverberant space with hard surfaces (walls, floor, large glass windows, etc), no absorbent materials like table cloths, and accented by loud, unfortunate music. This is, of course, the heart of Sonoma Wine Country. So when it fills... More
