Wanted to take my wife somewhere nice for her birthday and this is where she chose. She called in the night before and made reservations for our group with the manager. The day of she called to confirm our reservations and spoke with a second person. We get to the restaurant, which is barely half full on a Saturday night, and of course they tell us they never wrote down our reservations. We end up having to wait almost 10 minuntes for them to get a table ready (7+ available in the front) and stick us in the very back with chairs they just pulled in off the patio where it wass about 30 degrees. Ended up with a waitress with zero personality on top of all that. The only decent thing about our visit was the food. May try this place again in the future and hope that things have improved.

We have been here several times, the food, wine and service never disappoint. I would suggest reservations, especially on the weekends.

Upon the recommendation of a friend of someone in our party of four, we visited Sonoma for wine and dessert. The restaurant was pretty empty. The front and back patio (a plus that there are two outdorr dining options!) were also both pretty empty. It was a nice night so we sat outside in the front. We arrived around 9pm and were seated quickly, however literally half of the desserts on the menu were already sold out, including the blueberry cake which came highly recommended by the friend - it must be good! The area seems pretty active with a lot of people walking and strolling by.

The wine list was good with an average variety of wines and prices. The desserts we ordered were also mostly average. The heath bar bread pudding was very heavy on the heath bar and had stale, not in a good way, bread. The fruit tart was so-so, nothing really special, but the cherry pie was served in a ramekin and was the most liked of the three.

May be worth a try if we are in town again and have an earlier dinner.

Great place for drinks after work/an early dinner. Tuna sandwich is my favorite.

Love this restaurant. They have one gluten free meals which is one of the best I've had anywhere: the citrus chicken. Their burger is also GF, and excellent. Great wine list. Quiet, perfectly lit, one of my favorites in Tulsa.
