Diner Reviews
  • "Restaurant Rudy's pasta is the best I have ever had, anywhere. The menu at this gem is limited, but to me, that just means Rudy can perfect the dishes he does serve, and perfection is what your taste buds will get. Another perk - the prices are so low that you don't spend any more here than you would at a neighborhood pizza place, but what a world of difference. I'll be back again and again."

  • "We enjoyed our valentines day fixed meal although the food was only average and there was only one red wine offered per glass. I was a bit expensive also. The Desert was awesome the service was great and the ambiance was nice. I think we will give Rudy's another try on a regular night out."

  • "Open Table gave me a confirmed reservation for Thursday Feb. 13th at 7PM. I was 2 minutes late. It was not open. I am a local and pass the place daily. We were going because we noted the place was not very busy and we wanted to support it."

  • "We have been in for dinner before and were always satisfied. The dinner was pre-fix, however the choices were great. Something for everyone. The portions were large and the food was hot (I hate cold food). We both got different starters and main choices so we could share. We loved everything! Our server was friendly and attentive. We will definitely return!!!"

  • "The location of Restaurant Rudy is one that has had lots of turnover throughout the years & unless Rudy makes some changes, I fear this spot will have the same fate. The decor was a cross between IKEA & Restoration Hardware with no heart. The 10-item menu was printed on the top half of an 8.5x11 piece of paper. There was one red wine to choose from on the "by the cup" list & the bottles were way more expensive than this level of restaurant should be charging. We weren't even offered dessert. I don't know if they don't offer it or just didn't offer it to us, but for busy parents of an infant who spent their one date night out at this "promising" spot - we were disappointed."

  • "We went on a Sunday, it was almost empty. The menu was simple and we all found something to eat and share. Because there were few patrons the service was fast and efficient."

  • "Restaurant Rudy offers superior big city dining at small town prices. The menu is small, resulting in all dishes being extraordinarily well prepared. Our table of 5 tried nearly all of the appetizers. Each and every one was delectable. We all stuck with the pastas for our entrees and were not disappointed. Perfectly cooked and seasoned, they ensured our desire to return. Big pots of French press made for a nice ending after enjoying some good bottles of wine. Service was prompt and efficient. And again, the prices were incredibly reasonable. This is our new favorite in Sonoma."

  • "Food & service are always great. Don't understand why this place hasn't been "discovered" yet (i.e., its still relatively easy to get a table)."

  • "Dined here on thanksgiving. Had a good turkey dinner with different items than traditional which we enjoyed (restaurant had only set menu). We brought our dog and were pleased that they had a patio area........however, they need to get some heaters as it was too cold to sit outdoors. They did sneak us into the very back of the restaurant when it was quiet. I would go back and try menu items......"

  • "I ate here with a group of 10 for a bachelorette party. We were given a nice big table and everything seemed ok at first. We soon realized how understaffed the place was on a Saturday night. There were just 2 servers who also sereved as bartenders and bussers. The kitchen was painfully slow. Our server did her very best and we actually felt sorry for her. She tried hard to please us but unfortunatly soem of our guests were very upset with the wait for drinks and food. The manager or owner needs to seriously take a look at the staffing problem."

  • "Restaurant Rudy has great food at fair prices. Nothing on the menu the night we were there was over $20. We had a couple of wines by the glass and they were generous pours and they waived our corkage fee. We started with their Romaine salad and then shared the generous small plate of meatballs made with beef, pork and pine nuts. Then we both had their Short Ribs which were heavenly - one of the best plates of them I have had and I order that dish a lot. Very good strong decaf coffee to top off a lovely evening. Both Bella and the rest of the staff were friendly and provided excellent service. Look up this place right off the Sonoma Plaza on Broadway. Worth a detour!"

  • "So many better choices in Sonoma. Food wasn't bad but with a very limited selection including two mains in addition to a few Pasta selections. Service while well intentioned was awful. The space is depressing. Overall not a positive wine country experience."

  • "Limited menu, but the dishes are always fabulous; flavors are complex, layered, unexpected!"

  • "Awful. Just awful. Went based on a recent review in the SF Chronicle (not Michael Bauer). Big mistake. Food was overcooked, dry - really bad. Service was even worse."

  • "Very nice setting, but the chicken was very dry. I wonder if it was because we were late diners and it was sitting around. The halibut was very good."

  • "Needed to have a space to spread out to do business whilst dining. The patio was quiet and we had an oversized space to enjoy a varied menu and accomplish our mission. Innovative offerings and accommodating staff."

  • "This has to be the best and by far the tastiest meal that we have eaten in California. Where most places that we have eaten in the last 3 weeks concentrate on quantity this amazing restaurant concentrates on quality and at a very reasonable price -and the Chef is also a really nice guy. You must go here...it really is great."

  • "We arrived on time. There were a few tables occupied but nowhere near full. We chose to sit outside since the weather was nice. Service was a little slow but the servers were very nice and we weren't in a hurry. They took our order and it went downhill from there. My wife and I ordered appetizers and our daughter ordered an appetizer and salad. They brought our appetizers and our daughters salad, appetizer and entrée all at once. So we asked them to take the entrée back to the kitchen. We then waited over an hour for our entrees. The food deserves the four stars. We declined to look at the dessert list. Other than apologizing a lot, they made no effort to make things right."

  • "Based upon a review by the restaurant critic in our newspaper, we were looking forward to our meal. We ate early , 6pm, and were the only diners in the restaurant. We ordered the fried chicken dinner and when our dinners arrived, the (dry) biscuits served with them were both cold in the middle. The kale was overly salted and inedible. The mashed potatoes were from a package and so was the gravey. The chicken was hot and tasty although there was a large amount of fried coating that was saturated with cooking oil that needed to be peeled off to get to the chicken. Berry crumble was listed as the dessert but sorbet was substituted for it without an explanation. Would not recommend."
