    The entire experience at Sonoma's was beyond compare. We were warmly greeted by Kim Brady, co-owner along with her husband Bill who is the executive chef, and quickly brought to our table. Guests were strategically seated to allow for quiet conversation and privacy. Our server was very attentive yet non- obtrusive. He knew the menu and was able to make wonderful recommendations. The food was an epicurean delight, both in its presentation and taste. I can't say enough about Sonoma's. It is a hidden gem!

    and it will not be the last time! My wife and I had an exceptional meal with perfect service from Angela. My duck was cooked perfectly medium rare and was my wife's lamb chops. The sides were delicious and the wine was perfect. Sonoma lived up to its reputation as a fine dining establishment with a comfy relaxed feel. We'll be back!

    The waitress was very polite, knowledgeable and made our evening a special event. I have a gluten allergy and the staff helped with my selection and even provided gluten free rolls. The four us were very happy with the appetizers and our main selections. Desserts were yummy which offered gluten free as well. It was awesome from start to finish. Thank you Jessica!!!

    Sonoma served me what must be one of the top ten meals of my life. No joke. I had the "Korean Short Ribs" and was stunned by how good it tasted. All the extras on the plate were very good and complemented the entree well. Kudos to the chef and thanks for a memorable dining experience

    As usual our experience at Sonoma was exquisite. I got the braised beef and it was mouthwatering! My wife got the trout special and She loved it. I tried it and I have to admit it was light and delicious. Bravo to Danny O, he put out another great meal in the boss' absence! We'll be back soon. Scott Bernier

    drove to the middle of nowhere to find this GEM! Recently moved to the arera and had a hard time finding a 5 star dining facility. YES, I would rank Sonoma 5 stars. Far beyond any other restaurant in the area! I and my wife will definitely be returning. It was a nice touch that the excutive chef took time to come out of his busy kitchen to introduce himself and make sure we were happy with our meal. I have absolutely no negative comments here. Could not be happier we found this place.

    We have been going to sonoma for many years and thus will be our last. after a great app and wonderful tom collins i was stuck with the most boring chix dish ever. sonoma is notable for its twists on classic dishes and my chix and biscuits tasted like last years boring wedding banquet chix. my husband got the cowboy steak as he has in the past but this year it was bone in and not easy to saw through. we have always looked forward to dining at sonoma but we were so disappointed we will not be back.

    We had a booth which I recommend as it is a little quieter. Our waitress was fun,appoarchable and enjoyable all evening. She knew the menu and was there to recommend drinks, appitizers and main meal and dessert. Our meals were fabulous. I had the filet and it was cooked perfectly. You could cut the meat with a fork it was so tender. My husband had the korean short ribs which he loved! Our evening was relaxed and we were told when we arrived that the table was ours to enjoy for the night which was just great. We never felt rushed.

There were so many interesting choices to chose from so we decided we will definitely go back and try another of Sonoma's great dishes. I've had Sonoma's catered dishes and was finally glad to go to their restaurant. It was a very pleasurable experience. Would definitely recommend and go back! Thank you Sonoma!

    An unexpected gem. Located in a strip mall, you could drive by and not notice it. Service was top notch with a well informed, polite, helpful waiter. One of the best waiters we have ever come across. Our group of four agreed to try and get four different starters, four different main meals, and four different desserts just to sample as much variety as possible. We were all very happy. The flavors were excellent. We definitely will return.

    My first trip to Sonoma was memorable. I live in Worcester and a friend recommended Sonoma for a special occasion. Myself and the others in the party spoke about this being one of the finest dinners in a long time. The service, appetizers, meal and desert were truly special. The flavors for me were different and pleasing to the pallet. I will recommend the dining experience to friends and not wait too long to make a return visit.

    My brother and I had a lovely dinner at Sonoma on a Saturday night. The place was filled with couples and groups but the music of the guitar player filled the room with a great atmosphere that complimented the food so well. We enjoyed both the duck and the short ribs and all the other excellent sides and appetizers. Really, there was not an off note to the meal. Wine list is reasonable and the list of cocktails is a bit adventurous if that is what you want. We will be back!

    We traveled a couple of hours to meet others who live in Central Mass for diner. it is worth the trip. The food was very, very good! In particulary, I would highly recommend the foie gras appetizer and the Korean steak was unbelievably delicious. the seafood dish was also excellent. My veal chop was good, but not great. The desserts were all very good, with the fruit crumble, choco dessert and creme brulee all winners.

    Outstanding Venue for a relaxing, elegant (but not overly dressy) and special dining experience. Everything about our visit was just lovely - service, food, ambiance. The only drawback would be that it is a little dark in some areas so if you want it bright ask for a table by a window. I hope to go back and try another entree for another occasion. I would highly recommend - especially for a special occasion!! I can't believe I have never been there and heard lots of good things about Sonoma and never went!! All the reports were so true!!

    Sonoma never fails to impress. The food is always cooked to perfection and the wait staff very attentive without being overly pesky. The creative entrees and sample size of sides are wonderful. We celebrated a milestone anniversary at Sonoma recently and were very happy with our choice. Food rivaling Boston restaurants but without the parking or traffic nightmare.
