Sante is good. Staff is attentive. The welcome is cold and sterile. The wine list is good. Food is good but the charge great prices. It's handy for a meal in the hotel but NEEDS competition to up the game.

We stayed at the hotel and had dinner at the restaurant. This is not a typical hotel restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious. Our waiter Dennis was very pleasant and helpful. The bread was so good, I could have had that as my main meal. All the dishes were very delicate and tasteful. The chocolate soufflé was so light. The... More

The menu is extensive with great choices from pancakes to omelets. We had a nice table by the window and were promptly served coffee and tea. I settled on Eggs Benedict and my spouse had one of the three-egg omelets. The portion size was hearty but we had to pay extra to swap out the breakfast potatoes for a lighter... More

The hotel is beautiful, and the restaurant is perfectly styled as well. Service was o.k. -- relatively quick, but a bit reserved and with a snooty sommelier (hey -- some people want to choose their own wines). I had the venison -- it was tasty, but a relatively small portion. The souffle was absolutely delicious -- we got one for... More

This is not a "hotel" restaurant at all! The food is amazing and so is the service. They have an option for anyone in the party and the food is so high quality. Every detail is taken care of and they have the best iced tea I've ever had.

Decent food but prices are outrageous. $20 for juevos Rancheros for breakfast. $5 for coffee when it's free in your room. Ridiculous.

This is not your typical hotel restaurant so dont let the fact that it is located in the Fairmont deter you from dining her. The food & service is simply outstanding!! It's not cheap but worth every penny. Oh and the wine list in long and vast with offerings for anyone's pallet.

The restaurant was fully booked, but we were able to eat in the bar and order food from the restaurant or the bar. Everything we ate and drank was delightful. Our server was very attentive and helpful. I loved the lobster mac and cheese.

Atmosphere is modern elegant and part of the lovely Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn. Room is relatively intimate with coveted window tables; if you are along a wall the tables are large enough to for two to sit together rather than having one staring at a blank wall and being in the pathway of servers. Our stunning meal was also accompanied... More
