Very nice restaurant...they have a nice bar area where you can order flights of wine to taste. It's a bit pricey but overall a nice experience. We didn't get a meal but did like the appetizer we ordered with our wine flights. The higher prices kept me from giving it 5-stars.......however....it is worth visiting at least one time !

This was our first time visiting Virginia Beach and the Sonoma Restaurant. Our visit was during restaurant week. Our meals were served hot and tasty. The wine selection was expansive. Our server was very attentive and friendly. We recommend a visit. The only down side was the continual use of the emergency exit by customers which allowed cold air to... More

Visited the place yesterday to try after purchasing a groupon deal. Same time as restaurant week and the place is quite busy. Good thing they were able to accommodate walk-ins though reservations is recommended. The place was bustling as the decor has the bar in the middle and a living room like setting. The dining area is small but sits... More

Excellent food and service. Great wine selection. With many different venues to choose from within walking distance of this restaurant, you won't be disappointed by trying Sonoma instead of a nearby chain restaurant. The staff was extremely knowledgeable about the food and beverage choices. It was refreshing to find a staff who truly cared about our experience.

It has appetizers, salads & soups, cheese & meat boards The choices of Entrees are listed under two different rows. 1 is... More

Bartender was our server. Obviously under staffed for a weekend night. She greeted us and took our order (correcting my pronunciation for everything I ordered) Waited forty minutes for a meat and cheese board $25) that is not cooked. Tasty but minuscule. Ended up being over $50 for 2 glasses of wine and a ridiculous meat and cheese board. Not... More

I went to Sonoma for a Christmas gathering with coworkers/ friends. We had reservations. The restaurant itself is very clean. The bathroom was very clean....and has an awesome huge mirror for selfies. Lol. It's definitely pricey but great for an anniversary dinner. I spent the same here as I did at Ruth's Chris but purchased more drinks at sonoma. Our... More

Stopped here for lunch during business trip and enjoyed an okay meal. One of us tried the crab cake sandwich and one of us had the tuna salad. Both sandwiches were just okay, but they were way overpriced.

This is our second visit...and everything was PERFECT. The Sommelier, Emily Ann, was fantastic along with the servers. Each course was nicely timed and delicious when they served to us. The restaurant ambience is excellent for dates, couples night out...or a night with your spouse. You can't go wrong...we will return -- AGAIN!

Waitress was wonderful as was the food, wine and atmosphere! Lamb was tasty and prepared just right as was my wife's shrimp! The Italian wine was dry and complemented the dinner very well. Thank you Sonoma
