Went to two schools in two days. First was Peruvian at night with Olenka, and lunch the next day a French summer lunch with Pierre. First was hands on cooking, and the second was sitting class room style watching Pierre go at it, and dining on the courses as he completed them. Both very different styles and equally enjoyable. Pierre's... More

We were here for my childhood girl friends birthday. Her husband asked me to plan a special few days for her 70th birthday. We stayed at Inn for 2 nights and took a cooking class one of the nights. The staff at the Inn were above exceptional. I have taken cooking class at Ramekins before and have always enjoyed the... More

Our wine tour had a fun evening of wine and team cooking. Working with others helped us to get to know each other. Most all of the food turned out great, would have gotten at least another star but the main course (chicken) was underdone and this was probably a one time happening.

We attended a wedding here and the whole venue was a great setting for the evening. The set-up up for the ceremony and dinner were beautiful. There is a dance floor and dessert was set-up indoors, but the outdoor fireplaces were so tempting and ended up being a great gathering place. Food, wine and drinks were all delicious! Great time...

If they have space available, Ramekins cooking classes aren't to be missed! The Kitchen Boot Camp weekend classes are particularly great and your teen is welcome. Our teens loved and it learned so much!

Excellent teaching chef (Jill Hough), excellent assistants, excellent meal. Only negative was lack of communication from the school after reserving our place in the class. I had to call / leave messages several times in the days prior to class since we had not heard from them since I paid for the class almost 3 months previously. Better communication with... More

If your looking for a lovely spot for a wedding, this is it. There is an inner courtyard that is perfect for a small wedding. Although it was cool outside, there are heaters that keep away the chill The dinner was very good and prepared by the staff and students .

Best way to break the ice between colleagues and new comers! Very well organized cooking class, we all felt like chefs and all the dishes we prepared came out perfect! They gave us the receipes, so I look forward preparing those dishes at home.

Attended a wedding here in August, just before the earthquake. While this is a culinary school, the outdoor setting provides a comfortable, intimate setting with all the charm you'd expect in Sonoma. The seating area is shaded, there is an outdoor bar and cozy fireplace. The banquet hall is nice while being unpretentious. As you'd expect, the food is delicious,... More
