My wife and I had dinner here on a recent short vacation to Sonoma. We had made reservations for 7:30 and arrived a 7:00 to have a cocktail in the lounge. I advised the hostess of our arrival. At 7:25, the hostess came over and advised us that they were just a little backed up and our table would be... More

The restaurant is just a couple of blocks off Sonoma Square, but you probably won't find it if you don't know its here. That said, if you want a good reliable steak, there's probably no better choice in Sonoma. The decor is "quirky", with saddles all over and interesting art placed about. Its an old barn though there's not much... More

We recently had a family birthday supper at Saddles. Only 2 of the guests had been to the restaurant before, and all will certainly return again. We started with light and crispy onion strings that were wonderful and followed with a special grilled peach salad that was so good that one of the guests had a grilled peach for desert.... More

Enjoyed the fun western decor. The steak was delicious -- very tender, juicy, and flavorful. I had the rib eye special, my husband the prime rib. They had a hand-written card on our table congratulating us on our 30th anniversary. They also treated us with a special dessert. You also should try them for breakfast.

We had an amazing meal at Saddles last night to celebrate my boyfriends birthday. WOW! (We heard they have the best steaks in wine country and they do!) We started with the stuffed mushrooms and they were excellent…sage and something that we couldn't figure out…so good! Next we had the beet, mango strawberry salad and WOW what a wonderful flavor...

Referred by Sonoma friends -- beautiful location, peaceful, lots of gardens, free parking. Private walkway led to restaurant. We were greeted efficiently and escorted to a lovely booth. Waiter was gracious, kind and informative. Salmon Salad and Kobe Burger were delicious -- fresh, quality ingredients enjoyed to the last bite. A cool comfortable haven out of the hub-bub of city...

Moderately quiet atmosphere, attentive staff and a bar food menu that provides interesting and delicious choices. Make an entree out of the calamari/shrimp combo. Or try the Kobe beef burger and a Saddles salad. Cooked to perfection and arrives hot to your table.

Dinner and drinks were great. Ribeye steak charred rare. Fig salad, little different but delicious. All four meals were great. Too full to enjoy desert although it looked really good.

Breakfast was included with the room and was bountiful with very fresh farm and garden selections. Morning staff could not do more to make your day start off right. Dinner was very good. I had ribeye, perfectly cooked and my sweetheart had the savory halibut. We were both very happy. Did not get the desert I had requested, server talked... More
