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

Having been lucky enough to meet Chris Sawyer through the Greystone CIA group, I found out he's the sommelier at the Carneros Bistro and Bar ... a place I never thought to try because it's part of the a Renaissance hotel and I just figured it would be tailored more as a chain restaurant ... wrong! It was not only... More

Good food and for resort- reasonable price. My wife said the Huevos Rancheros were the best she's had. $13 and gluten free. If you are like me and want your coffee right away, tell the server you want a cup right away and bring the pot after (they bring you a pot for the table & cup) other wise you... More

First, this is a nice restaurant, but I rated it "average" for the area. We have had breakfast/brunch here many times and enjoyed the experience though the cost of menu items is higher than average for the area. Recently had dinner here and, again, the cost of food and wine is higher, considering quality, than other more interesting restaurants in... More

The meal at this restaurant couldn't have been better. A nice mix of seafood and meat dishes offered. My food was expertly prepared. The servings were very generous. I'll go back!
