Delicious food in short supply

We had dinner reservations for 5pm on a Sunday night before a Steelers game. The service was very attentive and knowledgeable and the food was delicious (I had the pork), but the waiter listed all of the dishes they were "out of" at the start of the meal. Early on a Sunday?

We were staying at the hotel immediately beside the Sonoma grille (visiting from Toronto), so just wandered over for a late dinner. Not knowing what to expect, we were seated at a table that was a bit drafty, and the staff had no trouble reseating us to a warmer location in the restaurant. My husband made a comment about the...

Amazing meal! New Year's they offered the regular menu as well as a 4 course special. Outstanding wine selection! Valet parking available. Good portions & delicious desserts! Conveniently located near the theater district and on Penn Avenue in walking distance to the strip.

I ate at Sonoma twice during my visit. The food is fantastic! Brunch consisted of The Breakfast Naan, which is a perfect sunny egg, over pork, cheddar, lightly dressed arugula and the Naan was nicely toasted, I also had Chicken and Waffles that was so good I was mad when it was over! The waffles are savory, the chicken is... More

My wife and I had a great dinner there last night. We both had the mixed grille and the food was just excellent. Service was exceptional. We would both highly recommend this restaurant!

Food is well prepared with quality ingredients. A warm atmosphere where you can carry on a conversation without battling piped in music or loud bar scene. Service was exceptional. Our waiter knew the menu and suggested a great wine when asked. Nice variety to choose from. We had tapas for an appetizer, a duck, pork chop and diver scallop entrees.... More

Went after a show in the downtown area. Had a great selection of wines, beer and food. We went after the dinner rush. Had great service and the food was fantastic. Enjoyed our time there, it was a little quieter then early. It was nice to be able to talk to the other couple we were with. Would differently go... More

It's been a while since, I've been to Sonoma. Don't know why, because I've always enjoyed the food and atmosphere. It will never be so long again..... This place always has a surprising and enormously appetizing take on it's food creations. Total YUM. You cannot go wrong with the menu, wine or spirit selection. Definitely one of the best places...

We have been to the Sonoma Grill many times. Before Thanksgiving we happened to go twice on two successive Saturday nights. Our experiences were remarkably similar. Both times we arrived by 6:00 PM and barely got out in time for an 8:00 PM show. The food was fine, but the service was stunningly slow. And both times our server managed... More

Went there during the week for date night and it was ok but nothing outstanding. Great wine selection and good service. We'd probably try it one more time.
