Cool atmosphere, reasonable prices, small portions

I ate here because it was attached to my hotel and it's freezing outside right now. I got the chicken with fettuccine and it was awesome. However the portion size seemed like it was for a child as I could have eaten 2 full servings and I am not normally one to complain of portion size. However... read more

I'll keep this short because my reviews can be long. Good beer selection, great service, reasonable prices for an upscale restaurant, and delicious dessert. Had a special chicken ravioli dish that was outstanding and the sticky buns with homemade ice cream for dessert. Go here for a nice upscale dining experience.

Enjoyed Sunday Brunch with some friends. For $23 you can select a drink, appetizer and main menu item. The appetizer I chose was Crab Tian and it was excellent. I had the burger for my entree choice and it was also good. The fries could have been a little crisper but they had a good flavor. Service was good, although... More

The Sonoma Grille is great for lunch, dinner, drinks and Sunday brunch. The staff is friendly and cooperative in trying to make sure everything is to the customers' satisfaction. Meals are diverse and tasty, but there are no guarantees about one's selections. Be adventurous. Some of our favorites include the tempura shrimp and a scrumptious filet mignon and mushroom kabob....

Nice location in cultural district, I was intrigued by their restaurant week menu selections. Largest wine selection by the glass I've experienced and reasonably priced too...$7. Cheese selections with various accoutrements was a nice starter with wine. Grilled chicken and whipped potatoes was very good but average. The restaurant week special was $35 for 3 course meal. Beet and root... More

Once upon a time there was a well written menu, with endless wines to choose from. A cast of well versed & charming staff that will recommend, with knowledge & a smile the vast selections Sonoma has to offer. Unfortunately, this amazing staff with a lovely decor can not defend food that has no character or lacks the quality of... More
