We came for Mother’s Day and were staying at the resort.
The food was ok, kinda blah. The portions were small, the food was ok, the price was unreasonable. My wife had a filet that cost as much as a real steak would, but what she got was a few thin slices of beef. I got a special duck item, it was ok, just basically a small thigh portion on rice with a tangy sauce. Better then the steak, but not a lot.

My wife ended up getting sick from the beef, so that wasn’t great.

Food and service were superb. We sat near the pool - weather was perfect to be outdoors. The menu was not huge, but there were some delicious entrees and small dishes. It's the best food and service and food we have ever had the Sonoma Mission Inn!

The restaurant used to be fine dining. The menu and quality of the food have drastically diminished, as has the furnishings. The service was a bit awkward with the server too present. At one time he placed wine glasses down for our wine, only to remove them for room on the table...? The sommelier decanted the wine, but later ran off a in a huff, refusing to pour when our guests and us were deferring to the other for the final pour. The floor was dirty, the table was unimpressively set, and the furniture was tired and beaten down. I recommend another dining experience.

From beginning to end we were in the best of hands from Pierre on the front drive, Jason at the bar, McKayla greeting us, Jonathan with his attentive and gracious service and of course the outstanding Maitre D Brian. You can tell there is an extremely talented culinary team with great attention to detail in their kitchen. Food and service are top notch as expected at this Wine Country gem. During these uncertain times we felt safe, pampered and relaxed from the moment we stepped onto the property. Thank you all for an incredible experience!

A disappointing return to what was once a fine dining experience. While the menu has down scaled unfortunately the service and food quality has also diminished.

Unfortunately not worth a return visit.

A beautiful night outdoors on the patio! Service excellent and the filet mignon was cooked perfectly! So tender you could cut it with a butter knife. Also highly recommend the roasted Brussel
Sprouts as a starter! The entire dinner was fab!

The oysters were good but nothing after the oysters was close to noteworthy which would be okay if the cost was not so inflated. The meal did not measure up to the price. It’s such a beautiful hotel and space that it was disappointing the food did not match the surround. I would stick with the food truck dinner outside and use the extra cash to buy an extra $20 glass of wine.

Dessert apple crumble was like kids one and food was not that good at all for the price . Menu was limited. Wine menu says per glass price is for the bottle.

Friendly and courteous staff. We were placed in a cabana due to the rain and it was cozy and intimate. The food was exquisite and the chef was accommodating to our requests. My wife wanted scallops in her Caccio a Pepe and the chef obliged. We’re looking forward to regular dining there once the restrictions are lifted. We’ll be back.

The staff was so kind and seated us right away even though I got the reservation time wrong. We were treated with respect, the staff was very knowledgeable about the food, and although it was outdoors due to covid restrictions, there were plenty of heat lamps and the tables were spaced nicely. The food was of course phenomenal!

Doing a great job with outdoor dining during COVID from a safety angle, but...service was horrible. Not just a one-timer; had breakfast next morning and food was great but service was still horrible. Wait for everything. Thirty minutes to get appetizers. Another 30 for entree. Had to get up to grab someone to ask for water multiple times. Rather than wait, I would get in your car and drive to another restaurant.

First time coming to Sonoma and staying at the Fairmont, and was a great experience! Great property, just 2.3 miles from downtown Sonoma, you can walk, run, or drive. I love their private dinners in the Cabana's overlooking the pool. With all of the fire pits and tree lighting, it created a perfect sanctuary.

The property offers a lot of social distance places to relax. It was not too crowded, it was just right.

Dinner special, Rack of Lamb over grilled Brussel sprouts with a yogurt-base sauce and mashed potatoes for two was delicious! We found it to be too much food, and we enjoyed the leftovers. We will definitely come back!

Food was ok, no “wow”factor to brag about, service was ok as well, i expected more because it’s fairmont but the service was comparable to a regular mom and pops restaurant. I amthinking maybe because of covid but the next day, my husband and i went to have dinner at another hotel restaurant and the service as well as the food was exquisite and exceptional even in covid times, i dont mind paying more if the service reflects it.

Not sure if the level of service or the quality of the food was due to COVID, but still even at a resort there should be a base line level of luxury even in these times.
