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 ...

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.

What a charming restaurant located a few blocks off the hustle and bustle of the Sonoma square. The patio in the back is very lovely and cozy. The chicken parmigiana was excellent, juicy and tender and the sauce had great flavor.

The ambience was wonderful on the patio. The pool and sound of the water spraying on the pool looked nice and kept noise levels from being noticed or distracting. The food and service was very good. I will definitely dine at the Depot again and I am already recommending the place to my friends. We were very happy with our visit. Gary

Ambiance was very nice; however, we were stuck in the corner of the restaurant and couldn't enjoy most of it. Our server was gracious. I had heard wonderful things about this restaurant; however, we were disappointed in our food. I'm usually not one to complain, I know everyone works so hard, but our pizza was burnt and the food was just ok.

General ambience in outside setting was romantic. Having heaters added to comfort. Walking in from parking lot to outside dining patio I found the area a bit scruffy. The Food excellent and came warm to our table. I was disappointed that there was no dessert menu and the offerings lacked originality.

Went to Depot Hotel Restaurant for a birthday. Had the burrata to start.....good. Wife have the Fettucine Bolognese and I had the Chicken Parmigiana. Both very good with good size portions, but not too much. Also had some local Sonoma County wine and finished with the Limoncello Cake. Very nice. Sat outside by the pool and enjoyed our evening.

Another wonderful meal experience. Just far enough away from the crowded Plaza in Sonoma so you have a peaceful meal watching the fountain at the pool in the back. It is very reasonable for what you get too. I had a black pasta with clams, cod, muscles in a tomato base that is almost double a block away in the Plaza.
If you want a quiet relaxing meal with old school flare, check it out. It's a mom and pop place not a coorporate group!

Wonderful experience! Beautiful establishment with lots of charm, but not too crowded. Ordered the salads and pasta dishes. Was fantastic! Everyone who worked there was was friendly and helpful. A great place to take someone for a special lunch or dinner. 2 blocks from the center of town, so parking was plentiful even on Memorial weekend. I will go back again. It is now my favorite place in Sonoma. Recommend it highly!

Four of us enjoyed a very nice lunch in celebration of full vaccinations and a nice holiday weekend. We've been here before, and enjoyed the outdoor dining around the pool. For appetizers, we had Tuscan Prosciutto and Smoked Salmon. Both were good, but the Smoked Salmon was particularly tasty. My wife had the Sonoma Salad, and I had the Akaushi New York Steak. She enjoyed the salad. The steak was fine, although I miss the Wagyu ribeye, which used to be on their menu. Our friends had the Pork Chop and Grilled Salmon. They both enjoyed their dishes. The outdoor area is pet-friendly, and our dog was comfortable on the shady patio. Service was fine. As befits Sonoma, the wine list had a good selection of red, white, and sparkling wines by the glass. A good time was had by all.
