The food was outstanding with a beautiful presentation. Dinners packed on lovely dishes in great picnic baskets. Even flowers included to adorn our table and small ganache desserts added. Brian was terrific- so friendly and customer oriented. He called to make sure we were satisfied...with our meals (when he didn’t reach us first time he called, he called a second time!). Undoubtedly best dinner during our 2-week stay in magnificent Sonoma.More

Meekk and her exquisite staff were ahead of the curve in adapting to the unsettling pandemic challenge. When my husband and I came for dinner in March to celebrate my birthday they were already limiting guests and maintaining social distance. And since then they've taken...it a step further. Now you'll be able to enjoy an amazing "Take and Bake" dinner for home relaxation and enjoyment. See their revised menu online. You can treat yourselves to many of their Signature dishes in addition to other special offers as well. Simply plan ahead and call 707-827-1832 or email info@sonomawineshop.com to schedule an appointment time as your order will be brought to your car as a "No Contact" safety measure!More

Ordered out from them. Meek was so careful to ask about food allergies and to accommodate them. But the real treat here is how wonderful the food is. The flavors are incredible. It is not cheap, but you get your money's worth here. I can't...say that about a lot of restaurants. La Bodega takes food to the next level.More

We had a great time with friends, Meek the energetic and engaging owner was a wonderful host, and her wine knowledge was outstanding. The real star of the evening was the food, don't pass up the crispy artichoke with marinara sauce, it is to die...for. We had wine, appetizers, salads, entree, dessert and port for four with tip $225. A real value all considered.More

You will want to meet the chef. Fantastically delicious! What a surprise. These folks know what they are doing.

You walk in here and are warmly greeted. You pick up your utensils, napkins, and glasses of water and are directed to a table. The food is simply superb. The fried artichoke appetizer with marinara is so tasty. The same with the mediterranean plate. And...you can’t go wrong with any of the entrees. Especially the wild mushroom ravioli. Rick forages these himself and with the cream sauce, heaven. Then there’s the wine. Locally sourced from small wineries. Always something new to try. And you can taste before you buy. Being a member of the wine club is a deal. The wines are reasonable and you get twenty percent off your meal. All in all a great experience.More

When you arrive you are presented with a menu sheet on which to mark your choice of food. You help yourself from a side table to cutlery and water. For wine, you discuss your requirements with the wine waiter who then recommends a wine from...the available bottles (about 16 red open, couldn't see the whites) and gives you a sample to taste. If you don't like the suggestion the process repeats until there is one you like (note - there will be a tasting charge if you abuse this) then you can either order a bottle or a small carafe. Food was very tasty.More

If you read my other reviews you'll see that I'm not a big brunch eater - I prefer lunch food for lunch. La Bodega has changed my view of brunch. It's a special non-restaurant in every way. From the second you walk in you feel...welcome. Everyone there treats you like family. You feel like you walked into a friend's home for a meal. You go and get your silverware, dishes, etc and set your own table. Then circle your selections from a paper menu. ALL of the food that comes out of the kitchen is spectacular! I love that they have so many gluten-free options. Every time that I've been there for brunch I can't eat anything for the rest of the day - I'm so full. Huge portions of exceptional food - with the best service I've ever encountered - who could ask for anything more!!!!More

This is the best food and wine I’ve had in the US so far. Especially, the starter with ravioli was good.
