Nice view, although spoiled by the presence of ladders and construction materials. The food was good, our waitress needed more training regarding knowledge of the menu and her table side manner.

Exceeded our expectations!! Wonderful service and the food was delicious!! We had cod, chicken and duck. Our favorites were the cod and chicken. We usually do not order chicken out but it was recommended and was delicious. The chocolate dessert was a little dry. The service was perfect. The wine list was wonderful and very fairly priced. The food and beverage manager was very friendly and helpful. Many gluten free choices and they were all very flavorful. The plate presentation was beautiful. We shared many main dishes and it was very nice that the kitchen split the entrees for us. Beautiful view of the bay. Spectacular dining experience!

The food was tasty and well prepared. A few flaws...the pea puree was a bit bitter and my scallops we're just slightly under but all in all it was a good meal. Wine menu was full and had some good selections. Our waiter was great. Things that could use improvement..the hostess was terrible. No smile or actual greeting. She then said something to us at the table but who knows what, she mumbles. Not once did we get a refill of water. The guy walked by with the container, a lot, ignored every attempt to get him to come over. For those prices I expect a bit more.

Our waitress Rebecca was so wonderful to us on our first trip to CA wine country! She was patient and friendly with choosing a wine winner as well as giving quality advice of local must see spots! She seemed to truly enjoy her work and talking with us.
All of the staff had such genuine smiles and ease to be around! The view was amazing!

We were celebrating a birthday and had an unfortunate experience. My wife and I were splitting the "Surf and Turf" which, according to the menu, consisted of a beef tenderloin (filet) and diver scallops. When the meal arrived and I divided the meat portion for us, I noticed that the meat did not feel or cut like a tenderloin should. I also saw that it was medium-well, not the medium=rare that we had asked for. I tried one bite, and it did not taste like a tenderloin. I looked more closely and what we had received looked like a piece of brisket. We sent it back and learned that the tenderloin had not arrived that day, so the kitchen just substituted what they had without saying anything to anyone. We were offered a rib-eye steak as a substitute, which we accepted even though I don't particularly care for rib-eye. It was better tasting than the brisket, but much fattier. Also the two scallops we received were over seasoned and under cooked in my opinion. The restaurant was very apologetic about the whole thing and comped our evening. I will have to think twice about returning.

Our first time at Drakes Sonoma Kitchen since it formerly was Duck Club. Our meal was tasty and the service somewhat inconsistent (towards end of meal service?). The kitchen was out of several items and although we were eventually informed, we were disappointed. Our server gave us one free meal as an acknowledgement, which was appreciated. Limited selection of gluten free items. Lovely setting

I would highly recommend this restaurant for it's beautiful setting, great service, fantastic food and quiet, romantic atmosphere. We've returned numerous times and never been disappointed.

Only reason I didn't give it "Outstanding" for the food is because although everything was very good, everything lacked salt. We actually both had to add salt to every dish. Once the salt was added, everything was very good.

The menu needs more vegetarian entrees. Vegan is mentioned above but not vegetarian. There is a difference and there are more vegetarians than vegans. The only vegetarian choice was a gnocchi, which was quite good, but the gnocchi were too gummy; good gnocchi are light and not gummy.

Dinner was disappointing. Soup way too salty. Pasta entree over cooked. Not offered a wine list. On the other hand, the manager was concerned, gracious and professional; well handled.

Haven't been here since Duck Club changed to Drakes. Nice atmosphere for the lodge. Convenient if you're staying here. Lovely coctails. Dinner was good but not amazing. I know the restaurant is continually updating and expanding. Looking forward to changes and improvements. Also ate here for breakfast the next morning. Comfortable and casual. Good food. Nothing highly interesting or unusual. Overall good.
