In 1823, Father Alta Mira, an early California explorer, discovered a beautiful 2000-acres valley 3 miles south of the present day Sheraton Petaluma. He named it "Tolay," in honor of a local Miwok Indian Chief. Historically, the floor of this valley was home to Sonoma County's largest lake, Tolay… Lake.
Proclaiming this fertile land sacred, indigenous tribes from all over the pacific northwest gathered to meet on the shores of Tolay Lake. Today, the lake and it's rich history have given way to abundant springs and ponds that support diverse populations of wildlife & flora. In honor of this longstanding partnership of land and community, we are proud to call our restaurant, "Tolay."

We are proud to use only the freshest wild and farmed local products. We recognize and celebrate the amazing & abundant regional products available to us here in Sonoma CountyContinued
