Description: Executive chef Armando Navarro's farm driven cuisine is a collection of earthy yet sophisticated, complex yet straightforward dishes that showcase the essence of seasonal produce. Chef Navarro sources his ingredients from local purveyors and nearby Sonoma farms, a commitment and dedication that is in line with El Dorado’s overall eco-friendly green initiatives.Navarro’s deeply satisfying cuisine can be enjoyed at El Dorado Kitchen. In the center of the main dining room, parties of up to 22 can gather around a 21-foot-long table fashioned from a single wood plank reclaimed from a Vermont bridge. This table is perfectly positioned to afford each diner a view of the artistic talents hard at work in the open kitchen.An outdoor courtyard allows diners to enjoy the beauty of Sonoma. Enjoy dinner under the fig trees and the clear Sonoma sky or take your lunch pool-side in your own private cabana or on one of the inviting day beds by the pool. We also offer casual dining in our lobby, nestled next to the glowing fireplace.

We enjoyed dinner here while tasting in Sonoma. It's nice that it's in the center of all the tasting rooms and surrounding wineries. The duck was probably the best dish.

We have been here for dinner and everything was perfect. Truffle fries were the best I have ever had, must try. Our waiter was very knowledgeable and recommended and excellent wine, the green tomato appetizer was awesome. Overall very nice food and I believe it is a great value for your money.

A group 6 came in and were placed on patio. It was a cool summer afternoon - just right.

Unfortunately, our server was having a bad day and did not hide it very well. He should have called in sick and enjoyed a day off. Instead he came to work and provided horrible service with a frown.

The kitchen was slow, the server was unhelpful and the food average in taste but expensive.

Forget it and try another restaurant in Sonoma.

We had 12 people at the Bridge Table which meant our group was in the heart of the action. Food was abundant and high quality and our wine pairings and cocktails excellent. Service on a busy Saturday night was really excellent.

Sonoma is historic, colorful and has a great town plaza with lots of action. The main action
for this little Northern California town is El Dorado Kitchen in the historic El Dorado Hotel
on the corner of West 1st and Spain Streets.
A quiet part of the Auberge du Soleil Group of hotels with restaurants, El Dorado Kitchen is
consistently fabulous. The food is seasonal, fresh and absolutuely delicious. My personal
favorite - fried chicken served on seasonal vegetables and potatoes. Had a leek and asparagus
soup that could be applied as a facial - so delicious. Go and enjoy.
