Diner Reviews
  • "The menu is very limited. The food is overpriced for the area. The food is average for the area. The portions are barely adequate. A child's burger, quite tiny, is $8 so this place is not kid-friendly. The waiter we had chatted us up about his personal opinions on a variety of subjects. To top it all off, we had a 17% 'service charge' added to our bill without any forewarning on the menu that we noticed."

  • "My wife and I were in Sonoma for the Vineman Triathlon and I had made the reservation months in advance. We had never been in Santa Rosa previously and I found this choice on Open table as I was doing the travel planning. I looked interesting and turned out to be a great place. I had the special which was salmon with a very flavorful vegetable raggu and my wife had the Fish Taco's which they made with halibut for her; both were excellent. The service was great and the place was full so I see we are not the only ones that enjoyed the food. The menu is small so hopefully they change it often. It will be a year before we are back that way and we will go again! Great food and great staff."

  • "The modern décor with metal tables and chairs would normally conjure up a cold sterile experience. Not so at Pullman Kitchen. Somehow those metal chairs are actually comfortable. The bright open room is not overly jammed. Even when it filled up it was not very noisy. The wait staff is very attentive and friendly without being over the top. The food is delicious and beautifully presented. We had a fresh zesty ceviche, delicious fish taco, and grilled local king salmon in wonderful taponade. We were on our way to a concert and did not have time for desert. The choices looked terrific....but, WE'LL BE BACK!"

  • "Overall a fine meal with a bad aftertaste. The restaurant charges a mandatory 17% service charge regardless of party size espousing a higher calling of "living wage". All four of us at dinner agreed it was high handed and we came for a meal, not to be indoctrinated in their political belief system. Further checking with some personnel associated with the restaurant indicated is a ruse meant to subsidize the kitchens pay at the wait staffs expense. If they want to pay the kitchen staff more, great, raise your prices to reflect the cost. Your actions cost your servers and also cost you clients as we will not return. PS, we typically tip 20% but do not when we are forced to adhere to misguided and deceptive political posturing."

  • "The atmosphere was wonderful, we sat in the outer, quieter section. Staff was friendly. Food was delicious. Up to this point I would highly recommend Pullman Kitchen. After being served our entrée, the waiter forgot us and it was over 45 minutes before he came back to the outside area where we were sitting so that we could flag him down. When the bill came, a 17% gratuity was included so they can pay their staff higher wages, but....out waiter didn't have to earn his tip. Also, tax is charged after the gratuity so you pay tax on food and gratuity instead of just the food."

  • "We joined another couple for dinner at the Pullman Kitchen. I ordered the Tuna Tartare, Korma, and Apricot Brioche Bread Pudding. I found the Tuna to be good quality but lacking in seasoning and a marked lack of acid balance. Adding a lemon slice to the presentation and some additional seasoning in mixing the tartare could be a good improvement. The Korma was good - terrific firm texture and flavor, with the quinoa done perfectly (not easy to accomplish). I am somewhat of a bread pudding connoisseur and was disappointed by my dessert. It was served cold (warming it would enhance the flavors) and the overall taste was bland to tart with the apricot reduction on top. I recommend Pullman and hope they will seek to improve these selections."

  • "Bacon wrapped Dates are outstanding. I had the grilled Halibut Special and my wife had the Braised Short Ribs. Both were outstanding. We also had the Spinach and Parmesan Pancakes. Sounded odd but they were delicious as well. The wait staff was helpful and provided great service. This was great place to spend some time together."

  • "This is a relatively new restaurant that has an eclectic menu. Prices are moderate. Food was good, service was excellent. Parking is easy as there is a city lot across the street. The corkage fee is particularly interesting in that it is only $5. Unusual in this day and age. Of course, many restaurants in Sonoma County, California do not charge corkage at all if the wine originates in Sonoma County. I would recommend Pullman Kitchen."

  • "The menu is varied, but the choices seem ordinary: chicken, meatballs, fish. But, the dishes are anything but ordinary. The combination of tastes and presentation surprised us at every course. The chicken was outstanding, both crisp and moist. Can't wait to go back."

  • "I'd read such good reviews about this place that a friend and I just had to try it. We weren't disappointed, quite the contrary, we were really pleased. I'd describe the food as extremely well-prepared and extremely delicious comfort food, with a few very pleasant twists. Our server, Nicki, was a gem. She's a CIA graduate and a chef, who's really into people and wanted out of the kitchen. Her knowledge of their food and wine was extensive and helpful. She had a rare combination of genuineness and competence that I rarely encounter in a server. They were pretty busy, on a Wednesday night. I hope that continues through their first winter. I definitely want to keep coming back here."

  • "Just perfect and open late!! We eat out a lot and try all the new places all over Sonoma county. The little bar is perfect to sit and dine as you watch the chef cook his magic! The menu is perfectly small meaning there is somthing for everyone but not to much. Great experience."

  • "On a whim, we decided to go for an early dinner. Never having been before we had no idea about the menu or the restaurant. Being a chef, I like to sit where I can observe the kitchen so we sat at the bar overlooking that area. Our server was very attentive and engaging. The chef and his team were like a well oiled machine. Nice to see. My wife really wanted to try the parmesan and spinach pancake but decided upon a dish that it didn't come with. Chef, hearing her comments, surprised us with one to enjoy with our meal. Nice touch. Both of our entrees were delicious. Good portions. Wine list is a bit small, but made us step outside our comfort zone and try a Spanish wine. We'll definitely be back."

  • "I found the service to be top notch. The bacon wrapped dates appetizer was burned beyond recognition but our server promptly observed this and requested another order without my having to ask. The second order was better but still over cooked. Spinach and parmesan pancakes were okay. The wine was pretty good. Nothing about the experience seemed to merit another visit although I hear the brunch is good."

  • "They recently had a "soft" opening. Not very busy on a Thursday for lunch. The food is quite good - some serious cooking going on in the kiitchen. It's an all-day menu with salads, sandwiches, small & large plates. The yellowtail tuna reuben (no sauerkraut yeah!) was excellent. My wife had a small excellent mixed salad and spinach-parmesan pancakes that were very good. A berry bread pudding was outstanding! We've already told our foodie friends about this one!"

  • "Portion of food not good, desert for two is actually a size of one desert (price of two). Favor of dishes are fine, not fantastic. Price is high overall. The final kicker is the involuntary 17% gratuity & the piggy back tax on gratuity. We generally tip 15 - 25% anyways; we would like to have the liberty to decide on the service received. It is a bad finish to a mediocre dining experience."

  • "Pullman Kitchen was just okay. Our server was really good but it was hard to find something on the menu that was exciting, and it was very limited. The home made ice cream tasted like egg and the beer menu was awful. It was also over priced cornstarch it was. Wouldn't recommend."

  • "We met here from 3 differant states for brunch before a family funeral. We were treated so well and enjoyed our brunch with them. The food was perfect, the ambience was great and the service very attentive.. They will certainly see us again next time we are in the area."

  • "This is my third visit. So far the food has been a disappointment. My fish tacos the second time had no seasoning at all and the solution was Tabasco! This time I ordered a cheeseburger and asked that the meat be pink but not rare. It arrived totally cooked and dry. Perhaps the worst I've had in decades. Such a shock for I know they use good ingredients. (The waitress stopped by when I was half done and they took it off the bill. Would have made another but my guest was on a deadline.) They weren't busy so why did the chef not track the grilling? The salad had great ingredients but the dressing did nothing. I am seeing a pattern of little seasoning. I want to love this place but so far only the servers have won my heart."

  • "Needs a bit of tuning, over cooked my burger a tad. Pricey, more like $$$ instead of the rated$$. Quality of ingredients were very good."

  • "In a sea of loud places with craft beer, this was an amazing find. I was surprised to learn that they were only 6 weeks old. The dining room manager was our server. It was late and we were the last people but he devoted time to us with patience and care. Yes, the menu was limited, but surely there is something for everyone. The combinations were unique, but not outrageous or too "hip" - just good! I had the salmon special with tarragon creme and it was great. I don't see tarragon as much any more. He also helped me select some EXCELLENT wines. I wish it weren't 2000 miles away because I would go back for sure. Everything was top notch and I could tell the proprietors cared about offering the best product and experience possible."

  • "As longtime residents and serious foodies we're exceptionally pleased by this wonderful new spot that took the place of sorely missed Syrah. Very different atmosphere and style, everything we tried was fine, some dishes outstanding, and we suspect it will only get better and better. They are serious about every aspect of the operation."

  • "The food here is incredibly fresh and delicious - and thoughtfully prepared. The dining room is small and intimate with an open kitchen. The kitchen staff is remarkably in synch with each other. The service staff clearly enjoys what they are doing. I wanted to try all of the appetizers, they sounded so great. Be sure to order the asparagus, beets, and JT's Fish Tacos. And save room for dessert!!!"

  • "Good service. This is not a place I am likely to revisit because the menu is limited and there was not to much that I fancied. I had Yellowfin Tuna Tartare, that was overspiced so you could not taste the tuna. The fish of the day was halibut and very good. The desserts are large and well prepared. I will monitor the menu when their web site is up and return if there is something that appeals."
