The food was excellent, especially the creme brûlée trio! The service was friendly and fast once our order was taken.

I guess brunches are not as popular as they once were so when we asked the concierge for a recommendation, she recommended we drive to Sonoma from Napa to find one. Connected to the Renaissance Lodge, the staff was friendly and extremely helpful, including putting our large party in a separate room. The buffet offerings were really quite unremarkable. There...

Over the course of our stay had breakfast, lunch and dinner in the restaurant - all good. Weekend breakfast buffet is great value. Staff both knowledgeable and ultra friendly.

We arrived here starving and in between lunch and dinner service. They accomodated us in the bar from the lunch menu. The bar tender/waiter and chef were wonderful with our gluten-free requests. The steak frites with truffle oil and hanger steaks were out of this world. I would love to return and try other items on the menu.

Arriving exhausted from our travel day we chose to stay close and dine here. What a treat. Our service was exceptional long with the food. Sorry we left the property the following night for a highly rated place that disappointed us! Wish we would have dined here that night instead.

Carneros is located just outside downtown Sonoma at the Lodge at Sonoma Renaissance Resort and Spa. We enjoyed a lovely breakfast during our stay there. The staff is very professional and our server Liz was a delight. When we visited with folks in Sonoma town, we frequently heard them mention Carneros and how much they enjoyed it.

We stayed at the Lodge and decided to try breakfast here based on recommendation from a co-worker. We are glad we did! One of the best breakfast meals we've ever had. There were four of us and we all felt the same way. Keeping it simple I ordered standard Buttermilk Pancakes. Many restaurants don't make them good, either to soft... More

There are good classic dishes made with good ingredients that have different fusion twists to them - interesting combinations of flavours and presentations. The pizzas are also outstanding - good thin crust with flavoursome toppings. The wine list contains some great classics and some local finds. Staff are friendly and helpful from bringing a speedy Martini to advising on the... More

Had a very nice dinner and several wonderful breakfasts here as guest of the adjacent Lodge at Sonoma. Tried a number of items on the menu and all were good. This isn't the French Laundry, but is good value in a somewhat expensive region!
