My hotel had suggested we stop by some Pizza cafe in downtown Sonoma for a quick bite to eat but since I am adverse to carbs we didn't listen and decided to drive towards the vineyards and see what we could find. Nested in between tons of vineyards is Kenwood Restaurant and Bar. We were seated right away outside which was perfect. The patio is great, nicely shaded with awesome views of Kuane across the street. There is a weird angel wing scuplture that moves in the lawn that we couldn't figure out but it's not in the way of looking at the vineyards.

We had a simple lunch, were waited on quickly and enjoyed our meals. The staff is really nice and attentive and I would suggest coming here.

The Kenwood restaurant and Bar is a fine establishment. The food is carefully prepared and the service is professional. There is very little turnover in the staff.
I particularly enjoy the cocktails and the salads. My husband and I will stop in for a glass of wine and the cheese plate on a weekday afternoon and sit outdoors on the patio. In the fall we'll sit in the cozy bar near the fireplace. If you like tapioca pudding, this is the place to order it. We've been going there for 10 years and consider it a special treat.

Two of us became really sick from the hamburger here. Contacted the restaurant and they didn't care enough to respond. There are many other better restaurants in the area.

Come before the sun sets and have a very nice view of the valley. Food is very good, especially the tortilla with goat cheese and the cheese cake. We were thrown out at 10pm though because they wanted to close.

This is a great spot to bring guests coming to see the wine country. Great food and if the weather is a warm day or evening eat outside. It is located amongst many of the Kenwood wineries.
