Unfortunately one of our fellow diners was suffering from some chest obstruction and coughed loudly through out the entire evening which ruined the ambiance for everyone present. Not much the restaurant can do about that. People should stay home if they are sick. The food was very good, the service was excellent and the setting is comfortable and attractive. They were flexible and allowed me to have an entire size portion of an appetizer for my main course, so I appreciated that.

The mandatory 18%tip put us in a bad mood. Service was slow. The dishes are just a tad pretentious and quite small. My husband liked the scallops and my steak was adequate but for the price, I'm not going back.

This was a delightful dining experience on Valentine's Day. Although it is a large room there is an intimacy with the tables nicely spaced. It had a refined atmosphere with the servers very pleasant but low key. The food was creative and very delicious including oysters, scallops, and a variety of chocolate desserts. There was even a talented guitarist playing background music that caught your attention. We left feeling well fed and pampered. We would highly recommend eating here particularly for a special occasion.

Wow: impressive. Food and beverages were dynamite. Excellent mule cocktails - nice local wine selection (glad to see our neighbors Gundlach Bunschu on the list).

Delectable deviled eggs with crisped prosciutto, pickled mustard seeds and black sturgeon caviar were fantastic (4 perfectly presented half eggs for $7: a steal)! The crispy fried brussels sprouts with apples and honey soy vinaigrette were outstanding and we are Brussel sprouts connoisseurs.

My husband's fried prawns over grits was super tasty and our mom had the petaluma half chicken over Yukon mashed, which was excellent as well! Service by Liz was impeccable!

Coffee was great and the Oreo cheesecake, topped off with raspberry sauce & fresh whipped cream and vanilla ice cream, was the perfect ending to a great meal.

Oh and bonus: Be sure to tell them if you live in Sonoma!! They treat locals right!!

We came in for a double birthday dinner and loved it. Everyone’s dinner was delicious and beautifully plated and served by Rick in a small alcove in the back. Perfect for our small group of 7. Highly Recommend.

We were reluctant due to some reviews but are so glad we decided to try it. Great service and food! So glad we ate here and plan to make it a regular.

This place is attached to a Marriott hotel. The food was ok. The menu was limited and the food was really overpriced. It did have a extensive wine list. I wouldn't go back.

Cold meat. Horrible service. Everyone received their dinners at different times.

So very disappointed in this experience. We were not told that Christmas dinner would be a buffet. The seafood bar was never adequately stocked and it took far to long to replenish it. The flatware was provided by wait staff, who were very slow to respond. We spent most of the time waiting for the food to be replenished, which diminished the entire experience. We left $250 out of pocket for two and will not return. Disappointed Sonomans....

We just had Christmas day buffet there. Usually buffets don't show well for restaurants but this one was outstanding. The food was exquisitely prepared. If the buffet can be this good then made to order meals will also receive the care and attention good food deserves. The staff was friendly and helpful. The restaurant itself is part of a hotel and the room is nothing special but the food made everything worthwhile. Go check it out.

Our first time for Christmas Brunch but definitely not our last. The food was great, the service the attention.
But I am really going back for the absolute best Bloody Mary I have ever tasted!
A very special recipe for their own Bloody Mary mix! You must try one!
