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.

Cute setting; out door around pool. Tasty food; we had calamari appetizer, chopped & ceasar salads, veal scallopini, & grilled pork chop. It was a busy Saturday night and think they needed more staff to cover everyone during peak. Interesting setting off main square.

The Depot hotel has a perfect outdoor dining space next to the pool and foundation. The staff are friendly and helpful and the food is good with generous portions. There are very effective heaters for evening dining among the blooming trees. Highly recommend the pasta dishes and liver crostini.

Nothing extravagant but it was OK in this current climate. You’re a better places around and but this is one that was open. They said they had standard seating unfortunate that turned me out to be outside under heaters it would’ve been nice to have inside seating.

The place is lovely. The food was delicious. Our appetizers, the cesar salad and chicken liver crostini, were very good. Our lunch entrees, the crab manicotti and veal scallopini, were absolutely delicious. The people were very nice. Overall, everything was good.

We love the restaurant and particularly the management/chef. The food is very high quality and we always get a great table. The outdoor patio and the pool are the perfect antidote to the lack of COVID indoor dining. We highly recommend it to all our friends and family!

Charming restaurant with all safety protocols met. Excellent caesar salad and don't miss the marinated olives. Bolognese was authentic and the chicken parmigana was top notch. Casual but elegant and easy parking!

Very nice ambience, romantic, attentive waitstaff, but the quality of the food just isn’t worth the price or meet the upscale expectations of a restaurant of this caliber.

Restricted to outdoor dining, the Depot has it all over every other restaurant in town. Their back patio set-up is already designed for comfortable outdoor dining, unlike all the jerry-rigged, curbside, sidewalk boothlets other establishments have to resort to. Except for the reduction in number of tables for social distancing, it's just like it was before the pandemic! Way to go!

Nice ambiance with good food and wine. Not many options for vegeterians but if you are a pizza lover than cheese pizza was pretty good. Recommend this place for a romantic meal together.

Perfect outside dining experience in the garden. We love their Italian menu. We each had a salad to start and then my boyfriend had the margherita pizza and I had the bolognese which was amazing. We wanted their Tiramisu but were to full this visit. We will be back!

This is a great place for a meal.
Due to the virus problem, all are seated outdoors. The Depot restaurant was a former hotel. To my knowledge, they are no longer operating the hotel. Anyway, the seating is on their open area around a pool. Nice quite setting, away from the former bustle of downtown Sonoma.
The meals were very good. My wife had crab cannelloni, which she appreciated as she is not a meat eater. I had clams, mussels and prawns on black pasta. The best was last.. Limoncello cake. A sponge cake with the limoncello. (We split the desert).
During these time of the virus and the shutdown, it was a real treat to take a drive in the country and have a great meal.

It was a very cold day and we very dining outside per health regulations. The heat lamp high about our table was not working well. I asked the waitperson if he could move one of the portable heat lamps behind our table to keep us warmer. He said he could not. It was 50 degrees that day in Sonoma. I will not be back.

The food is always excellent and the service is friendly and efficient.
Even with all the challenges and restrictions related to the pandemic, I find them to be doing a responsible and wonderful job.
If you haven't been here you are really missing out.

The Server was a tad slow and not very engaging. I ordered the filet and got a rib-eye or a NY, not quite sure! Just a verrrrrry lackluster experience. A Server, especially in this day and age where restaurants are fighting for their lives, MUUST be engaging, constructively suggestive/helpful and FOR THE LOVE OF GOD AND ALL THINGS TRUFFLE!!!!!,.............
DO NOT EVVVVVVVVVER INTERUPT A CONVERSATION BETWEEN PATRONS!
Wait for the opportune moment! I get it! Everyone has an off night!
Sigh,....
