This restaurant is well located, and the food was very good. The wine list is extensive. Most appear to be reasonably priced though an extended list of premium wines can be had by parting with substantial sums.

We had breakfast/lunch at this restaurant. So glad we found it on our last morning here. The food was expertly prepared and presented. I had Eggs benedict, 1 friend had the burger and 1 had pancakes. We were all thrilled with our choices. The restaurant is beautiful and has outdoor seating. Although we did not get to sample the wines,... More

We ate here when dropping off our daughter at her school. Her roommate's parents selected the place and made reservations. We had excellent service and excellent food. The ambience is warm and welcoming. I had grilled salmon with Asian vegetable. They offered tofu, beef, pork and salmon... We had a large party and they were able to handle the table... More

Had a wonderful bottle of Italian red after a day of touring the 'Burgh. Great location near the convention Center and right next door to our hotel. Friendly service, but a bit pricey.

Nice spot for a summer lunch. Open air, nice decor. Had a salad sandwich combo with a delicious salmon slider. Food was fresh and interesting.

First time back at Sonoma Grill in almost a year. Many changes to the menu. Gone are my favourites : Indonesian Duck and Trilogy of Duck. The dessert menu had nothing on it that tempted me. I had cappuccino and it tasted burnt. Sorry to note that change is not always for the better

Restaurant was chosen due to the good location near the convention center. Surprised to come and learn that there is a new menu different than the one accessible on the site. The menu selection was 2 pages and didn't appear to have a large selection. I started to have second thoughts when they had no chicken as listed. The olive... More

Food was OK. Service was very disjointed...Our meal from start to finish took over 2 hours with very little customer service from our "head waiter" in between courses. Our entrees were served by "runners" who dropped off our food and left. No one came back to see if we were pleased with our entrees or if there was anything else... More

We have walked by this place for years and always said "we should try it." So we finally did. And it was ok. We were on our way to see the Matilda tour at the Benedum and stopped in for a bite. The service was ok, nothing phenomenal. The food was acceptable, but nothing special or memorable. The wine list,... More

Friendly and efficient bar staff. The "What's up doc?", with the cardamom & chill infused carrot juice was crisp and spicy. The tapas was good especially the battered avocado with crab.

Thank George D
