Live in the area and have been to the restaurant many times. We made a reservation expecting that we would be seated. When we got there we had to stand in a line for 15 minutes. When we finally got to the front, we were...told it was first come, first serve seating and had to order immediately. Not a problem if properly informed. We placed our order and went to patio area. 4 or 5 lamps were available for the entire area so many of us were without extra heat. Waited 30 minutes for the order to come out wrong. So disappointed. You lost some locals. And the food was cold . Good luck. If you valued your customers, we would become patrons.More

What a fun environment! The waitstaff was delightful from the minute we walked in to the minute we left. A great selection of brews and food. They had a live “band” playing a selection of Stevie Nicks and other great old school jams. We’re thinking...about heading back one more time before heading back East. Highly recommend.More

We were tasting nearby and enjoyed the variety of the menu and the freshness of the salads. Solid french fries too!

We had the all meat pizza. Brick oven cooked, the crust was crispy, really good flavor. The service was good. Outdoor dining was lovely. They said the have music Saturday and Sunday afternoons.

We were staying with friends nearby. This is their favourite restaurant so we didn’t have a choice. Wouldn’t have been my tip to go to, but I was proven wrong on the 3 separate occasions we went. All meals were good, especially the pizza.

Our return visit to Palooza showcased a couple of changes, but the food remains consistently good. Ordering is done at the counter now, and there is a self serve water station. The pub still offers indoor and outdoor seating, and prepared food is brought to...the table. This visit I had the caesar salad, to which they gladly added grilled chickren. It was a very large portion, but tasted great. Can't wait for my next visit.More

Our home rental was nearby and we ate at this restaurant twice for lunch, both were excellent. The pizza crust was perfect and the black and blue burger was magnificent.

Palooza was recommended to us by a winery tour manager and he was entirely accurate... delicious! Portions are generous too. Get a couple salads and a pizza and you won’t need anything else all day long! Perfect for sobering up between tastings.

Like I said it before and I will say it again....it is the best food in Sonoma county! Hands down! Loved the 1/2 rack of ribs, ceasar salad and the fish tacos! Everyone had a great time!
