“5 Star dinning right at the hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2013

My friend and I arrived at the Mission Inn after a day of traveling up from San Fran and stopping in downtown Sonoma - we love to shop so it takes a lot of time to get anywhere. We did not want to leave and go back downtown for dinner. Delighted to find that the hotel has a very pretty wine bar with great by the glass selections. We then wandered into the restaurant without reservations and not actually dressed up. We were warmly greeted and given a table. A non-snobby young man helped us select a great bottle of wine to have with dinner and a delightful set of servers took care of the rest! Food is really good. Perfect end to the day - with a simply walk back to the room. As a side note - I left by favorite cashmere wrap (more like by blanket) which I always used to travel with (a very expensive splurge) at the restaurant. Totally forgot about it - the next morning the front desk contacted me that they had it at the desk for me! Server found it and made sure it was returned to me - extra effort and greatly appreciated!

“Michelin starred restaurant was a real experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

We ate here as part of a large group and had our own private dining area. The menu was excellent and the cuisine featured fresh locally grown ingredients. it was more of a dining experience than a meal. Each course was served with a little bit of theatre and were explained in detail. Desserts are a favourite and i was not disappointed - the soufflés come highly recommended and are a real treat!

“Get the lobster”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

My husband and I agreed that the food and service was good. Pricey but good. Skip the doughnut holes. They really are doughnut holes and fried for that matter.

“Worth every penny”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2013

Nice wine list. Service, decor, and food excellent. Menu changes daily. Get a table next to the swing out louvered windows by the pool.
