Had lunch there with my husband & a friend for my birthday. I had burger which was good & my husband shared a salad & spring soup with our friend. The soup was very colorful but that's about it... Burger was good though.

I had not visited the Kenwood since its remodel and new ownership. Needless to say, I was disappointed with its plain-Jane $16 hamburger (ordered blood rare, but received well-done). The fries were tasty and not overdone, but there were far too few of them. I would like to laugh, but the burger was the worst I have ever eaten, and... More

We were served a mediocre hamburger, over cooked, which we ate while listening to the yapping of a small dog the establishment allowed a patron to bring in. Won't return............

You can sit on their gorgeous patio with fabulous views of the vineyards, and play bocce ball, while waiting for your freshly butchered lamb ribs, or rabbit sausage. One of the foodiest restaurants in the Valley of the Moon, with one of the best wine lists. Try the chocolate cupcake with marshmallow filling and salted caramel ice cream for dessert.... More

Before its sale the Kenwood was a favorite place to eat in the Sonoma valley. Our visit last night proved to be disappointing. The quality of the food was not up to the very high prices. A roasted artichoke was dry and tasteless - at least we were not charged for it. Halibut ($30) was dry and poorly presented. Wine... More

We had a fantastic meal with fermented vegetables to whet our appetites. Then goose liver pate and rabbit sausage as appetizers (both of which were wonderful). For main course we had a vegetarian pasta dish and duck, again excellent and so tender. Dessert was a butterscotch pudding like we'd never tasted and pound cake with lemon curd decorated with tiny...

Kenwood Restaurant recently changed hands and I finally got a chance to try it out last weekend. The menu, inspired by the owners of Fish in Sausalito, is much more sophisticated: rabbit sausage, bacon chop, ... The dishes our party tried were all outstanding, from fresh oysters to butterscotch pudding. The outside tables are even nicer after a revamp of... More

Under new management I understand, with access to excellent seafood and championing local ingredients. We sat outside on the very pleasant terrace and enjoyed wonderful oysters, salad (with a brilliant green goddess dressing), seared salmon and pasta. Service was very good and informed about the dishes and wine list. The bar looked to have a comprehensive selection......

Beautiful patio with fantastic scenery. Fully stacked bar and interesting brews. We all had burgers with fries. Cooked perfectly and tasted great. Service was friendly, prices are average for the area. Highly recommended!
