Sonoma has an extensive wine list, and their wait staff are very attentive and know the offerings cold. I ate there on business twice this week. First was better than second. I wanted lots of vegetables my second visit and ordered grilled asparagus and Brussels sprouts. Neither were cooked to tenderness. They tried recooking the sprouts, to no avail. They... More

This is a beautiful restaurant with delicious food and excellent service, in a wonderful downtown area of Pittsburg. All staff we encountered were very friendly and welcoming. We were a group of 8 with a couple needing to leave earlier than the rest and our server was very accommodating. Our server had very good knowledge and recommendations of the menu,... More

We have dined at Sonoma Grille many times, and always want to return. The menu is diversified, all food is perfectly prepared and presented, the ambience is just right, and service has always been exemplary. Pricing is a bargain relative to the dining experience. This is our top choice restaurant whenever out of town guests visit with us.

The Sonoma was perfect for our Bridesmaid Luncheon! We had our own beautiful, private room. The service was flawless and the food was wonderful!!!

I really liked the food, staff was friendly and wine selections were excellent. The whole evening, however, was a bit of a disaster. I had a reservation for a table and when I arrived, since I was dining alone, they all but forced me to sit at the bar. The bar staff was quite friendly and delightful - knowledgeable on... More

Trendy sort of place, with dining area vaguely suggestive of a plaza in some Mediterranean village. Some unique menu selections with some tapas options. Some Asian influence in menu, with some dishes surprisingly spicy.Good service. Somewhat expensive, i.e., with the cheapest bottle of wine on the menu, a round of drinks, and tips, $ 150 for two.

My friend and I were out for a girls theater night and stopped here on the recommendation of a friend. Excellent choice. I was pleasantly surprised when making reservations to be asked if there are any dietary restrictions. We had a lovely dinner from the fresh sourdough bread, to the suggested wine, (they have Numerous California wines), to the salad... More

Located next to the marriott courtyard this is a great restaurant to go to for a nice meal. The frog legs are superb as is the duck.
