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 the Vinoteca, in the cozy dining rooms, and on the terraces surrounding the Italian garden and reflection pool. Food is a serious passion at the DEPOT HOTEL Restaurant--whether it is making house made salumi and charcuterie, or handmade pasta, or fresh ricotta. In addition to products made in-house, the Sonoma wine country offers an abundance of new artisanal products. The search for the best local products is a treasure hunt the Chef enjoys whether from the coast, local farms, or local cheese makers. Come join us for lunch or dinner...or just drop into the Vinoteca for some small plates of antipasti and a glass of wine with a friend.

Close to the plaza but still with a quiet oasis feel (pool and fountain and all) in a lovely old stone building with open fireplace. I had perhaos the best New York strip steak I’ve ever had as well as a nice scallop appetizer. Certainly worth a visit - we’ll be back.

The Depot is simply one of our favorite restaurants in Sonoma. Gia and Jamie are welcoming and inviting at your arrival and the staff carries on with casual yet attentive service during your meal. The food is excellent whether it be a pizza, tagliatelle or (my favorite) the Orchard salad.

Request a table by the fireplace in the wintertime and outside by the fountain in the summer and fall months. You will not be disappointed. The Depot is a special place in the heart of wine country.

This is a quaint restaurant with a cozy ambience. I had the black pasta with seafood which was delicious. My husband really enjoyed his grass fed steak. Dessert was unfortunate - the chef added orange zest to a cannoli. Being a bit of a purist when it comes to Italian desserts, I was disappointed and couldn’t eat it. Service was great except for the staff who rolled cutlery in the dining room right behind a table of guests and then ate there. Overall, great option when visiting!

We had our anniversary dinner here. The meal was superb and the dessert was amazing. The service was great. A definite “must try” if you’re in Sonoma.

We loved the crab cannelloni! We split a Caesar salad and the portions were unusually small though delicious. We also loved the tiramisu and the warm lemon cake...both delicious.

The New Year's Eve holiday prefix menu was amazing. Great food, excellent service, and nice ambiance seated adjacent to the fireplace. Will definitely return another time soon.

Depot is consistently excellent. This longtime family-owned business is the restaurant I go to most often in Sonoma. The food is always very good, the staff are warm and welcoming, and the patio is lovely.
