The DEPOT HOTEL is a charming neighborhood restaurant located in a stone building just a block off the Plaza in Sonoma. Locals and visitors to the Wine Country enjoy Tuscan-inspired cuisine in spacious dining rooms, and on the terraces of the Italian garden and reflection pool. In addition to products made in-house, the Sonoma wine country offers an abundance of new artisanal products to enjoy. The wine list is heavily laden with local Sonoma wines as well as wines from Italy. Come join us for lunch or dinner...or just drop in for some small plates of antipasti and a glass of wine as well. Take-out is always available as well...

*Covid-19 update: We are now open again!! For the comfort and safety of our guests and staff, our tables have new 6-foot spacing. We have multiplied the frequency of our daily cleaning program, and provided all our staff with masks and gloves. Hand sanitizer is offered throughout the facility. All menus and wine lists are one-use.

Delightful respite. Food straightforward, not fancy but well prepared
and simply presented. Lunch by the pool was part of our great afternoon
outing. All servers observed virus precautions---as did all patrons.

Great food with reasonable mid-level prices for a quality restaurant right off of the "square" Good ambience with the nice indoor patio and pool view.The salmon,chicken and canneloni were excellent...We had the delicious limoncello cake for dessert and shared it....The waiter was top notch,the bus staff smiling and friendly and our wines (by the glass) were a generous pour.

Such a charming place! And the food was spectacular! Very tasty and reasonable serving sizes! The service couldn’t have been better and no sticker shock when we got the bill. Will definitely go back again when we’re in Sonoma!

As always, great pastas and friendly, unobtrusive staff. Our circular table for four would have been better suited to a party of two. Dealing with all food and drink items was quite awkward.

Truly enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the Depot Hotel restaurant on Sunday evening. It’s our favorite restaurant in the Sonoma area and there are many great ones to choose from. The menu, entrees, and desserts are inspired cooking at the finest level. Bravo, Chef!

Great meal. We started with a shared appetizer of marinated artichoke hearts, roasted peppers and olives. Along with a slice of the Italian bread brought to the table, this was a great way to begin our meal. The cannelloni were some of the best I’ve eaten. A perfectly seasoned meat ceiling was wrapped in a delicate crepe. Roped with a cheesy tomato sauce, it was a melt-in-your-mouth dish. My dining partner had the swordfish steak which was cooked perfectly. Served on a bed of wilted Swiss chard and a few wedges of crispy potatoes, it was a dish we would order again. We finished up with an order of peanut-butter chocolate gelato. Served with two orange scented checkerboard cookies, it was a nice way to finish our meal.

This restaurant is located Ina historic building, so it’s a bit funky inside, but very charming and the wait staff was terrific. We’re looking forward to going back when the weather is warmer as they have a large outdoor dining area.

I have no idea where the Google reviews are coming from but this is nowhere near it's rating. If I had to give Depot an overall grade it would be a "C." If you're looking for an authentic Italian experience, this is not your stop. Staff was kind and tried very hard but not a restaurant I would return to for another meal. I feel bad writing negative reviews but feel worse reading the reviews that led me here and believing those reviews.

We’ve been eating at the Depot Hotel for years. It’s the best restaurant in Sonoma; excellent food and delightful ambiance whether eating inside or out by the pool. The Wildhurst house wines are excellent as well.

Service was fantastic. We had reservations at 1:30pm for a late lunch however due to valentine's weekend it pushed our scheduled. We showed up around 2pm and little did we know the restaurant closes the kitchen at 2pm. However the owner/chief (i'm assuming) was super accommodating and still sat us down and offered most of their menu. The place was very lovely, perfect for a late romantic dinner around the fountain in the summer. The pastas were great and so was the service.

It was a beautiful day to introduce a friend to one of my favorite restaurants.
As always the crab cannelloni was delicious and my companion enjoyed the salmon with leeks.
My guest was delighted with the Depot and wants to return.
Our waiter was friendly and efficient and the garden and pool looked inviting!

This restaurant is the best "secret" in Sonoma probably because it is not on the square. Best chef and food in town and I have been to all Sonoma restaurants many times.

I have eaten at the Depot many times over the years. The food was always excellent. This time however the food was just not very good. A few months ago there was a rumor that the restaurant was going to close. It felt like the kitchen was just going through the motions. Disappointing to say the least. Our server was excellent. The one bright spot to the evening.

I met up with friends for dinner! Menu was GREAT. Wine list was excellent—-both glasses and bottles. Here’s the work ahead—- don’t put all of your customers in one room with bad acoustics. The place is precious and delightful but we should have been spread out. There were thrre groups all in the60+ age cohort and we couldn’t hear one another. The ambience was super and so was food. Alas..

Our children got us a gift certificate for Christmas. It had been years since we have eaten at the Depot Hotel. What a pleasant surprise! The food was really good. We both got the veal scaloppini. It was delicious! Our service was great as well. Hoping this restaurant stays around longer. Heard the owner is retiring. We will definitely be back!
