Had the wild mushrooms and scallop for starters. Mushrooms were incredibly seasoned and flavorful. Wine prices *by glass* were moderate to expensive but within reach. Has the wagyu for 2. Amazing dish. 20 oz of pure magic. Came with veggies and mash that were outstanding too. A few different sauces that were good but I choose to enjoy the beef... More

All good. Had the tasting menu... you won't be stuffed but all good. For a Michelin rated place the service could be better but still no complaints. Be prepared to spend.

Food is delicious and always creative. It is on the pricier side so be prepared to spend more than let's say something in the square.

This restaurant tries to be too pretentious. The wine list was absurd. There was one wine that was $750 - not for a bottle but for a glass! If you want a reasonably priced glass of wine, skip the restaurant's wine list and ask for the wine list from the adjoining bar. I had the Salmon entree and it was... More

There is also a glass of wine that is $750.00. You read that right, that is for a GLASS, not for a bottle!!! The following items were ordered at our table and my... More

Last night in Sonoma and we were a group of two couples. The food here is absolutely phenominal. We had the scallops, filet three ways, and the sea bass. The table sampled all plates and every one was a perfect dish. The sommelier was knowledgable and paired a few bottles perfectly for us. This is a world class restaurant. Service... More

We ate here on a Travelzoo offer that included a 4 course prix fixe dinner for two with sparkling wine and coffee for $135. It turned out to be quite brilliant value, with interesting and varied menu choices. The individual portions were not huge, but as we were having four of them our appetites were very well sated.
