Every person who worked there was welcoming and on top of things. The food was fantastic and the vibe was chill and "local."

We (a party of four) arrived on time for our reservation but had to wait 15 minutes for our table to be cleaned and prepped. We asked the hostess/server to keep the bottle of Champagne we brought chilled while we waited - she took the bottle and left it on the counter. Not a great start. We found the dishes... More

How many bicycle riders can you jam into a little restaurant? My wife and I were expecting a nice dinner in a bistro setting and instead was placed against a wall in a roadhouse atmosphere. Within 2 minutes of sitting down, bread was thrown on the table in front of us and we were asked to order before the crowd... More

We ate here twice. Food and service very good on both occasions. Varied menu plus daily specials, all well presented. Good list of wines available by the glass.

A charming little bistro tucked in Occidental! The menu is creative and incorporates local products. The wild king salmon is so fresh that it wiggles on your tongue. The clafoutis is delish! No corkage fee on Thursdays so you can bring your treasures from a day of nearby wine tasting. Not to be missed so make reservations.

We went here for dinner last night after a series of lackluster meals in Bodega Bay. We were so, so happy! The woman who took our reservation on the phone was super-friendly and that continued with the whole staff when we arrived. The place was nearly full on a Wednesday night, and justifiably so. The menu is full of tempting... More

We had a group dinner at Bistro Des Copains and were so pleasantly surprised by the quality of food and warm service. Highly recommend the onion soup and the braised short rib, which were both truly exquisite. Of the entire weekend in Sonoma and San Francisco, this ranked as our favorite meal. Will be back on the next vacation!

We've been to Bistro des Copains a few times and have always found it to be very agreeable. If you want to be transported to a French country bistro instantly, this place does the job. The decor, service, and food all say France, starting with the onion soup and ending with the mousse. But it's not all cliches; the menu... More

This is a cozy, eclectic and delicious place to have a meal and enjoy the company of friends. The atmosphere is almost as if you are in the home (albeit a lively home,) of folks you know. It felt to my husband and I almost as if we were in Europe! Very good food. You will not be disappointed and... More

The food at this place is SOOOOO good you want to close your eyes while eating. It's a bit expensive so we save it for special occasions. It has a nice ambiance and the servers are friendly and attentive but not ostentatious, We had their cheapest merlot ($8/glass) and it was very good. I was disappointed in my dessert (burned... More
