A jewel. Please, keep the secret. Great food, world class sound, far better than any venue in Marin or SF.

We hit Prelude before attending a conference. The food was excellent, service good, and a great value. Love the ambiance. It is our go-to choice when we are attending an event at Weill Hall.

Always great food and service. Best place to eat before attending a concert at the Green Music Center.

Prelude is a great location for dinner before the shows at Weill Hall (Green Music Center @ SSU). The food is very good and fresh; however with limited menu. They are full most nights and the service was very slow due to the kitchen being backed-up. The staff are all very gracious, but our dinner was not served until 15 min. before show time so we were not able to really enjoy it.

Enjoyed dinner before a concert. Setting is lovely and cosy; fireplace is warm and inviting. Menu is prix fixe which allows them to focus. Enjoyed all three courses; only mild complaint was with the cheese course at the end - one of the cheeses was too hard and dry, and couldn't even cut it with a knife.

Servers are obviously learning, so it's excusable to forget the spoons and forks at dessert.

Tonight I was here with here with Lee , Dannie & Alana! Before the 30th Anniversary concert of Windham Hill's Winter Solstice | William Ackerman, Barbara Higbie, Alex De Grassi and Todd Boston!
As always the meal was absolutely fantastic as was the service, couldn’t be better from our student server.
We always enjoy the great wine and food
selection that they have and are very appreciative of Allisons fine management.
The staff is always friendly, the restaurant is very clean bright and inviting, do try it before or after a concert sometime you will like it.
We think of Prelude as a very special place!

I always go to Prelude restaurant after a concert and sometimes before, the food is incredible and changes seasonally. Tonight I am having wild mushroom stew and roasted sea bass along with a Carol Shelton Wild Thing, 2013 Old vine, Mendocino Zinfandel, followed by a double espresso☕️ I look forward to a meal here in 2-weeks with Lee , Dannie & Alana! After the 30th Anniversary of Windham Hill's Winter Solstice | William Ackerman, Barbara Higbie, Alex De Grassi and Todd Boston!
Mike & Martha Dunne you need to check out this restaurant! With or without a concert. (But it is only open when there is a concert).

Only complaint was two very small, and I mean, very small sprigs of broccolini on the otherwise excellent main course.

Date night with husband was for first performance of Santa Rosa Symphony's 2017-2018 season and dinner after in attached lovely restaurant. The elegant room with large gas fireplace was not crowded, so noise level was perfect for conversation. Menu was prix fixe. With the $39 dinner, we chose appetizer plus entree. Add one cocktail and two glasses of wine and the total bill was over $100--by no means inexpensive. I had the lamb medallions; husband had the pistachio encrusted salmon. Food quality, innovation and presentation were in the higher end of our experience. The young student wait staff of the university learning the hospitality field could not be nicer or more accommodating. For us this counts as a local, special occasion, occasional treat.
