I have visited this restaurant a few times throughout various trips to the Santa Rosa/Kenwood/Sonoma Valley region. For some reason, every time I have gone in sometime between Friday lunch and Sunday lunch the service, food, everything has been so much better than the times I visit on any given weekday. It seems that more attention to detail is given... More

We thoroughly enjoying our morning gourmet breakfast outside in the courtyard with fountain and fireplace before heading out to the wine county each day. Each time there was something specially prepared along with fresh baked pastries, cakes, muffins, and fresh fruit. The staff was always willing to accommodate any wish and served everything with a smile. We were made to... More

We had a very disappointing dinner here. The waiter was terrible. Didn't know the menu or the wine and didn't care. Got two of three orders wrong. And the food was equally as disappointing. I would skip this place when in the area.

The setting is spectacular...the drive up the Sonoma Valley is classic wine country. The restaurant is charming and low key. The patio is an idyllic spot for summer lunch, but don't overlook the bar (and fireplace!) for a cozy winter meal. A relatively new chef continues the practice of using mostly local ingredients in well-conceived dishes. Reliably delicious. Wine list... More

Food was a mixture of some good and some disappointing, but service was weak. On the good side, the mussels were amazing, and they had as a side dish green beans in a pesto sauce that were a big hit with out table. The fries were great too. Their desserts were quite uninspiring, with wide disappointment around our table, specifically... More

When my wife and I visited our daughter in California, we took several day tours around the Napa Valley. One night, after visiting several wineries, we were looking for a place to eat and came across the Kenwood Restaurant & Bar. The ambiance was nice and we chose to sit outside as it was a pretty evening. We ordered several... More

I'm don't "do" bad reviews, but our experience yesterday requires it. We arrived around 1:30 p.m. on Friday afternoon, and though there were only 10 or so patrons dining in the restaurant, we were made to wait to be seated until our waitperson "got caught up." OK, fair enough, a minor inconvenience at worst. But I'll just get to the... More

Went in for a last minute tasting and had a great time. The pours were generous and our wine guide was patient and informative. We left with two bottle of the Jack London 2007 cab say.

While one of us just had a hamburger and the other a salad we were seated in an outdoor covered patio area that was very nicely shaded and a great respite from the hot sun. The food is well served and the wait staff professional. What more can you ask for. The outside of the restaurant as you approach may... More

Memories of previous meals brought us back here a few days ago. But with the underdressed salad, cold pork chop (graciously replaced with a hot one, but still.....) and chewy/tough flatiron steak, I don't think we'll be returning. There are simply too many other options in this wine country area to settle for mediocre. The bar area however, staffed by... More
