Saddles Steakhouse - MacArthur Place
Satisfy your steak cravingPlus:
Great food, especially the steak
Pleasant, friendly, attentive service
a little dark inside
dessert just OK (I love dessert and want it to be memorable)
on the expensive side
The special beet salad was very good. A little too sweet for my taste, but that was as advertised, so it was not a surprise. I had pot roast and my mom had New York steak. I loved the pot roast. Mom said there were some gristles in the steak, but it tasted great. We split the apple crisp for dessert and it was good, but not noteworthy.
There is a covered veranda that would be a great place for semi-outdoor dining. It had a roof, but the sides were all open.
I recommend coming here with meat eaters for special occasions.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSizzling steakAll around good food. great service and perfect ambience.

Our waiter on the other hand delivered exceptional service.
Food was very good but not exceptional. I was satisfied that we received our monies worth. We shall return.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat steakhouse on a quietGreat steakhouse on a quiet street away from the crowds in downtown Sonoma. Would definitely go back again.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMSaddles was an enjoyable dinningSaddles was an enjoyable dinning experience. The food was delicious and moderately priced. The portions were a good sized. Overall, we were very satisfied with our entire experience.4/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe live in Sonoma my reviewWe live in Sonoma my review of the restaurant has changed. It's a nice place for steaks which are good not great. their menu is priced like Redd's in Yountville, no comparison . Redd is light years ahead and menu price is the same. Just don't order the wine it will kill your welfare check.
One think nice about Saddles the corkage fee goes to charity! That's so cool. Redd's corkage is ridiculous $25 goes to their bottom line.
I think Saddles Happy Hour pricing is superb, you should try it!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Birthday night!Wonderful Birthday night! Thank you for great service and a wonderful dinner!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great, variety ofFood was great, variety of salads, cheeses, fruit. The granola is the best, and I would never say that about granola. After that, oysters, shriimp, crab, mussels or prime rib. Dessert was incredible, lots of variety, the chocolate cake was very chocolaty. Crab was cracked in a way that allowed easy picking. Service was excellent, lots of mimosas went around, plates always changed. This is the way I remember Easter Brunches. I frequent Sonoma often, and have tried all the places, because my children live there, I would say Saddles it one of the very best restaurants in Sonoma.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMour server Carol is alwaysour server Carol is always efficient, professional and lovely !3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a party of 10 thatWe had a party of 10 that included 2 small children. I began with a cocktail recommendation from our server, Leah, since I wanted a different martini: The Lemon Brulee Martini. Loved it! We started out with the fried Calamari--delicious! The specials were wonderful--I had the sole with spinach and just what I needed--a healthy dinner after a day of splurging at the Cheese Factory. Ambiance was perfect with fireplace lit and lighting soft. Several in our party had the salmon special. Although everyone was very full after dinner, there was room to share the yummy Baked Alaska. We had two small children with us and the server promptly brought their mac and cheese as soon as she could, but crayons and a place mat to color while waiting.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWrap your lips around this !Real beef .Prime rib is my favorite. Service is professional but low key .Been here 8 times and go back often. Especially when I want a straight forward meal without a lot of artsy fartsy " creativity " .1/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
