We had a lovely dinner at Caneros . My husband was very happy with the special that evening of halibut. I would have to say I was less happy with the pork dish, just not much taste. Food presentation was lovely, and service very well done. We had a second, late night meal at the bar. Wood-fired pizza was wonderful,... More

My wife and I shared the grilled octopus appetizer which was delicious but that was the best dish we had. My Greek salad was fine but overwhelmed with at least 15 olives....my wife had corn soup which she rated o.k. My wife had grilled fresh salmon and I had pork.....both were over cooked and very salty. But we did enjoy... More

I ordered the salmon entree and it was delicious. It was perfectly cooked and well seasoned. My husband had the rib eye special which was advertised as blue cheese crusted. He felt it was false advertised as there was no crusting on his steak. We both had the beuno vista pinot noir which was fabulous (bought a couple bottles from... More

We sat at the bar. The bar tender looked to be on his game until several females came in. Wood fired pizza very good made at the bar counter.

We began our july 4th holiday at the Lodge at Sonoma. We were road weary from a long trip down the coast so decided to stay on site for dinner. The hotel assured us the restaurant was very good. We attended the on site wine tasting that was nice. I ordered the corn, crab bisque and the three sliders. My... More

My family and I enjoyed the Carneros Bistro for a few days of breakfast. Briefly, good place for kids, great menu and good food. Service is really inconsistent and quite lacking, but friendly and hopeful. Billing for items was different each day, which is bizarre when you're having a buffet every time ("all inclusive"). Not crowded but still hard to... More

My husband and I recently moved up here and wanted to celebrate the sale of our house. You pay for the quality of the cuisine, but it's worth every penny! Of note is the peach salad, which is the best salad I've ever had and I've eaten a *lot* of salads, and the lamb sirloin. Service was prompt and courteous.... More

Loved the ambience, the food, but we shared everything and still it was a very pricey evening. Save it for a special occasion and you won't be disappointed.

Had lunch at the Bistro - one larger group there but otherwise about 1/2 empty. The food (a deliciously prepared very rare burger for me and swordfish tacos for my friend) was excellent. The wait staff was very attentive but it took 45 minutes to get our food! If you don't want to spend the afternoon at the restaurant, I... More
