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 ...

My husband and I went back to celebrate our 7 year wedding anniversary. We held out reception here in 2014. Amazing experience and staff back then and today as well. Being in a pandemic didn’t make a difference with the service food or ambience! We relived our wedding day and we are so in love with the location. Thank you staff and everyone for making our anniversary so special!

We had picked the restaurant based on the menu and the ambiance of the restaurant based on the online pictures and were really looking forward to a nice meal. We were met at the door by a nice gentleman who held the door open for us. We got sat by a very polite young man. So the start of our experience was wonderful. Our waitress came to our table, did not introduce herself, did not ask how we were and made no eye contact with us. As one of our appetizers we got the melon and prosciutto, which they were out of. The melon was replaced by a pear which was not ripe at all. We brought that to our waitress’ attention, but we don’t like to cause trouble so we didn’t want to send it back we just wanted her to be aware that the pears weren’t ripe. She brought us our entrees, dropped them off and left. She came back one time to ask if they were ok. We finished our meal and waited for her to return to clear our plates and bring a dessert menu. We waited several minutes and finally started looking at the time. She came to the table behind us and brought them food and did not acknowledge us or that we had finished. We tried unsuccessfully to grab her attention. After at least 15 minutes it was another worker who noticed we were done and grabbed our waitress for us. She asked if we wanted to see a desert menu and we said that we did not want one anymore as we had just waited 15 minutes for her to check on us. Before we had even finished our sentence she had turned her back on us and walked away. When she came back with our check she dropped it on the table instead of handing it to us and immediately turned and walked away again with no eye contact. We felt as though she made no effort from the beginning to give us quality service.

Went for dinner and discovered the Ahi Tuna sold out during lunch, wasn’t happy about that and the pizza we shared had a distinct fish smell/taste to it but that might of been the toppings.

The ambiance really makes this spot a winner. The food is solid but nothing to write about other than it’s good value, plentiful, and likely consistent. The outdoor dining is lovely out back surrounding a large pool. Lots of time to leisure over a meal in a pretty place.

Historical “hidden” gem off the Sonoma Plaza that we regret not visiting sooner. Enjoyed a perfect Easter dinner of a shared Caesar salad, Dungeness crab cannelloni for me & my husband had chicken parm that was served with some tortellini & green beans. A little veg with some acidity with the rich crab cannelloni on an otherwise colorless plate would have been nice but it was delish! We also shared the limoncello cake with mango sauce for dessert, which was the perfect ending. Service was pleasant & attentive without being over the top annoying. Atmosphere outdoors with the sound of the pool fountain was very relaxing. Highly recommend.

The Tonnarelli was excellent--the sauce a garlicky, tomato-ey, nicely salted triumph--and the limoncello cake delightful, light and tangy. Our daughter enjoyed the salmon dish and the tiramisu. The ambiance is lovely, perfect for an era of outdoor seating, and we had a very enjoyable evening.

The outdoor patio is a lovely place to share a meal. Almost a throw back to another time but still has charm. The food is quite good. Not fine dining but a recommended place to enjoy lunch or dinner in the town of Sonoma.

The restaurant did an excellent job at ensuring there were enough space heaters to keep diners warm at outdoor dining. We weren’t cold during our 2 hour meal. Service was great. The black spaghetti with seafood was my personal fave.

We've been going to The Depot Hotel for many years and have never been disappointed.
We've celebrated many birthdays there and recently our 50th wedding anniversary. The food is always top notch and the wait staff is friendly and attentive. You can't beat the lovely location whether dining inside or outside around the beautiful pool and gardens.
Their entrees are priced competitively for Sonoma and the servings are generous.
