“Everything was Excellent”
Reviewed April 17, 2014

We had a group of 16 for a business/couples dinner. They were able to accommodate us well with excellent food and service. We had some special dietary needs that they handled well also. We were offered Grown Up Mac & Cheese (w/Lobster!), Filet Mignon, Pork Tenderloin & Fish, along with plenty of sides. All was prepared well, and very tasty.

“Nice evening - a little overpriced”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

We were staying at the Fairmont for my husband's birthday. The hotel was great, but found Sante to just be ok. If you want a fancy dinner - then this is the place for it in Sonoma. From an overall taste and experience perspective, there are better restaurants in Sonoma.

Dear Finnylynne, Thank you for choosing the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn & Spa for your husband’s special celebration and for posting your review. I am glad you enjoyed the hotel, but disappointed to read that you only found Santé to be o.k. Santé is our Michelin rated fine-dining restaurant that has traditionally been wonderfully memorable for our guests so I am so sorry you did not have a better experience. I do hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back again for another special occasion or no occasion at all. Warm regards, Guest Service Manager

“Wonderful meal”
Reviewed February 23, 2014

The service was truly top notch. The food was all very good, using local organic ingredients when available. They were accommodating of my gluten allergy. My only ding was that my food could have been hotter, but this was a little issue, and overall I would recommend this to anyone staying at the hotel. It was way above hotel restaurant expectations.

“First class everything!”
Reviewed February 3, 2014

My wife and I arrived early and had drinks and appetizer in the lobby. Four of us had dinner including paired wines. Every course was beautifully presented, plated, and cooked to perfection. Two of us had fish and the other two pork and steak. Service, food, ambiance, everything was superb. All this came at quite a price and because of that it was a special treat and not a restaurant we'd regularly visit. Wonderful experience.
