Carneros Bistro & Wine Bar
Good PlaceBeen here before , Good wood grilled fish and steaks .Service is friendly and efficient .6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat find in the hotel!We found Carneros on Open Table when we were looking for a restaurant for the first night we were going to be in Sonoma. The reviews were good so we decided to try it. We were not disappointed. Food and service were excellent - and the convenience couldn't be beat. The dinner was great as was breakfast the next day. Best restaurant we have found in a hotel!6/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat evening outMy husband and I chose this place as a last minute choice since we had never been there before. The decor of the restaurant wasn't stunning other than this awesome wood podium that they have in the front with the hostess. All of the othe decor was just, blah. The service was great and their wine list is incredible. It is loaded with amazing wines and there are so many it actually is put together in a binder. I was blown away at how good the food was. They made this asparagus soup with lobster in it that I have been craving ever since we went there. It is a must have. We will definetly be going there again.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner on 5/23Everything was awesome. The food was of very high quality. The staff were very friendly, efficient n energetic. It's good for any occasions. Their wine list is outstanding n extraordinary. Highly recommended. A must go restaurant in Sonoma.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWhiling away the available timeWe were very pleased. Staff had read our comment on the reservation, that we would be watching the time as we had
another engagement, and made us aware that they knew that, and told us not to worry," they would take care of us"
We walked in a few minutes early, and before serving time, and were taken to a table, and were able to have a drink,
and then order our dinner. Daniel , our server, made sure that everything went off like clockwork,without being
in the way, and we had time to spare. We plan to come back,especially when we have time to linger on5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMJunny's birthday celebrationthe food, the servers, the fresh seasonal ingredients - SUBLIME ! We had a great time thanks to Andrew (chef), Russ (our server) and all the folks at Carneros Bistro - thanks to all !5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMRelaxing placeExtremely relaxing place with great selection for vegetarians. The food was exquisite. the service was poor, with the staff forgetting our drinks twice, no one checked in on us for a while and we had to find someone to help us get butter for the table.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFriendly service, great food.Our server, Brittany, was FABULOUS! Professional and friendly. Food was great!5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMKeeps Getting Better!Everything about the Carneros continues to improve. The salads and entrees were outstanding. Coffee rubbed filet mignon...excellent! The salmon was perfect!! Great wine list. Very good, but not great, service. Many more locals continue to come. Not just a hotel restaurant but now a wonderful Sonoma dining destination.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMPeaceful ambiance and great serviceI've been here for bar food in the evening and it is usually a fun, and relaxing place to hang out and watch a game or enjoy good conversation. Have eaten brunch here a couple times now and the food has been consistently well prepared and pretty good quality. The service is always good too! If Christine waits on you you're in for a treat!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Dining & BreakfastThe food was really good. A lot of their stuff comes from the garden right outside the dining room. The octopus started, which obviously did not come from the garden, was excellent and well cooked. Everything on the menu read yum, and was. Had breakfast there too, there's buffet (which for a buffet breakfast looked fantastic), but ordered off the menu instead, eggs benedict, yum.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe asked for and were seatedWe asked for and were seated in the private room off of the main dining area. This is perfect for an exuberant birthday celebration. However, when you're " out of sight....." the server (Daniel) was on average attentive but could have been more timely. All 8 diners remarked on the fabulous food and multiple good choices. Quite worth the ride up from SF and we love introducing friends to this wonderful restaurant.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMNice atmosphere and wine listNice atmosphere,great wine list,food selection okay.wait staff attentive and friendly.would recommend.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMClose to exquisite foodThe food here is close to exquisite. I had the asparagus with buratta to start, and it was much more than its name implies, with tasty crunchy stuff which I can't identify but added a wonderful surprise. The lamb was perfect in a red wine sauce, accompanied by delicious quinoa and young peas and tendrils, which also were perfect. It is so unusual to find a restaurant which respects sides so fully. The dessert menu was a bit disappointing and heavy, so I had the lemon tart which was nice. This is the only reason I would not give an outstanding for the food. As to the ambiance, the techno non-music they played was very distracting with its constant repetitious riffs & beats which would drive a musician nuts. Otherwise, unobstrusive.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't miss lunch hereEnjoyed lunch...grilled chicken sandwich and burger were delicious. Nice wine selection. Service was excellent.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMWe love Carneros Bistro.We love Carneros Bistro. We stay at the Lodge at Sonoma frequently and have brunch and or dinner regularly at the adjacent Bistro while we're there. It's a short walk to the room after a wine dinner. We sit outside with our Chocolate lab near the gardens where they grow their own vegetables and herbs. The food is always fresh, creative and delicious. Daniel usually serves us, and he's a treat. Chris, the sommalier, helped us with some excellent wines for this last visit. There were six of us so we brought two bottles and bought two so they waived corkage. The Sicilian swordfish was wonderful as was the lamb sirloin. This is one of our fav restaurants in Sonoma.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful dinner,We had a wonderful dinner, pork and sea bass. Hadn't eaten there in a number of years but thought the food and our experience was outstanding and will be back soon. The suggested wine pairings worked well and were innovative.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food/annoying techno musicFood and service were exceptional for a chain hotel linked restaurant . Decor was nice but the techno music in the background was out of place for the type of place and very annoying.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was the perfect spotThis was the perfect spot to sit , talk ; have an impressive meal and dine with friends. The appetizers ( wedge & Beet Salad ) were fresh and very appealing; thesteak , salmon and pork entress were fresh, well-presented and perfectly prepared. Would return here again !4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMYou're batting 1000. Always good!You just can't miss with the Carneros Bistro! We've taken friends there, gone in for a bite, celebrated major events, and the other day just wanted a nice brunch. Savory omelettes - even egg white-only, great coffee, and a nice airy setting for a Sunday morning.3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is some of the finestThe food is some of the finest I have had in the wine country. The risotto was excellent- tasty and very rich. The ahi tuna and hangar steak were both very tasty and perfectly cooked. The presentation of the food and the fine service contributed to a most enjoyable evening. We will be back soon. The wine list is extensive and the staff is very familiar with even the more esoteric selections. My only minor criticism would be to liberate the complimentary oyster from its heavy and overpowering sauce.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was a great experience!This was a great experience! Great food. Great service. Great ambience. Staff were wonderfully attentive, including the sommelier.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMSimply excellent -- and openSimply excellent -- and open on New Year's Day!
