Nice restaurant located about 2 miles from the Square in Sonoma - adjacent to a nice hotel.
Interior is OK - a little noisy, but for a restaurant connected to a hotel much better than average.
Visit started out a little unpleasant when we asked the server if we could open some wine we brought with us. She said yes, but they did charge corkage. I was OK with that. How much? She said $30 - after our loud groan - she said, Well maybe it is $15?? Well maybe I am not sure...
New waiter came over and straightened it out (no charge).
Cosmo's were very good - I had the Duck 2 Ways; very good. Wife had the salmon which she liked. Lemon Tart after was excellent.

Standard fare with a high end twist. Delicious bacon. Eggs done to perfection. Coffee was fresh and tasty. Homemade preserves topped the sourdough.

Cozy, intimate -- great staff. Food was excellent. We had crab dip, pizza, and steak (yes, we indulged!). Everything was wonderful, the bartender was great, the drinks were never empty. All in all, can't go wrong! We will be back at some point!
