Went for Mothers Day Brunch 2015. They offered a set menu, and each of the choices were interesting and as a table we each ordered separate things. Very tasty. Service was mostly OK, although they seemed a little understaffed that day. A little on the pricier side, but worth it for the event day. Valet parking available outside which is... More

This bistro in the CBD arts district claiming it offers ingredients-driven American tapas could be so much more. Went there for a business lunch (for 5) and was seated at a large round table in the middle of the room - not intimate or quiet. Waitstaff was nice but not special and probably could've addressed our dissatisfaction with two overdone... More

In town on business. Ate here before awards. Told staff of time constraints. They were so accommodating and nice. Our server was excellent; he gave us an overview of the menu. Food was delicious!

I dropped in for dessert and a glass of wine. I was disappointed that they were out of the wine I wanted, however my server suggested a red that was delightful and a dessert, a chocolate banana torte, that was delicious.

I dined here with my husband and parents last week for my dad's birthday. My family are big meat-eaters, so they all stuck with red meat and said all of their meals were delicious. I took a chance and got the Indonesian spiced tofu; it was absolutely amazing. Our server was lovely and very friendly; it was one of the... More

I ordered room service from this restaurant as it is connected to the Marriott. My food wad delivered both nights within 20 minutes with no delivery charge. Salmon tasted fresh and the grilled chicken was very flavorful. The value is insane. I paid $13 for a salmon salad that would have cost me $25 back in NYC. I popped in... More

Had the filet and soup of the day- to die for. I don't think a restaurant chef has ever understood my intention of medium well this accurately. My waiter, Richard, was such a doll- very attentive and helpful.

Recently downtown for a event and found Sonoma Grill within walking distance to the theatre district. The menu has multiple options, lots of tapas type starters and a mixed grill section where you chose protein,side and sauce. We elected for a starter and entree. My husband had the black bean soup. It was a hardy portion approximately 12 oz and... More

My family can here before attending a show. Great choice... We started with the Avocado and Lump Jumbo Tian appetizer. I have had similar dishes at other restaurants, but the slight use of chili oil is what separates this version from all of the others. The mildest heat was such a compliment to the mix of cooling crab and avocado.... More
