    When I made the reservation I had looked at th breakfast menu and it looked great but today at 8:30 they inly offered us the brunch menu. We really wanted the eggs and oatmeal. Maybe the weekend they only do brunch. If I was there at 11 or 12 maybe brunch but not that menu at 9:30

    I had the chicken tacos, My friend John had the paella, and my friend Laura was talked into the filet mignon. All were delicious and stunning in appearance. Which was the best? It was a close race between the paella and the filet mIgnon, but I must admit the filet won. It was the most fabulous steak I've ever eaten - I was given a small taste by Laura. Desserts were fantastic, too.

    Our waitperson (waitress) & other helpers were very nice and on the spot! Our orders were served in a timely manner. We did not feel rushed and most importantly our chosen champagne, appetizers. entrees, desserts, after dinner cocktails were all delicious. There were five of us with two family members celebrating November birthdays. My only disappointment was not receiving a couple birthday free desserts for the two birthdays. Our bill came to almost $700! (Which other upscale restaurants have given a birthday recognition dessert- which I had mentioned on Open Table when I made the reservation). I do though recommend EDK for a fine dining experience!

    This is the third or fourth time we've dined at El Dorado Kitchen and every time has been great. Last night I had the butternut squash soup. It had roasted pepitas and, no kidding, mini marshmallows on top. It was fantastic! Really unexpected and delicious. Plus a great server and lots of fun! Highly recommended.

    Our dinners were outstanding. It was a cold evening and we were initially seated at a table with a horrible draft from the door to the patio. We asked the waiter if we could move and he graciously took care of it, and was still our waiter even though we were in a different part of the restaurant. II believe his name was Jason and he was excellent!

    We were celebrating the holiday lights in the Plaza, and of course chose EDK as our favorite evening dining option. Requested outdoor seating but had to wait a while for a table with adequate heating. Not the restaurant’s fault-unfortunately the Sonoma Fire Department has decommissioned 60% of their outdoor dining area heaters. Hope this can be remedied soon, as we love the back patio. Service + food was exceptional-as always. Thank you EDK!

    I had heard great things about this restaurant, so decided to try it for brunch before wine tasting. The restaurant itself is beautiful and the staff was extremely friendly. My friend and I shared the salmon Benedict and omelette…both were absolutely delicious! Also, the pomegranate mimosa was lovely! Service was on point and would definitely recommend this restaurant in you are in the Sonoma area.

    One of us received a full piece of chicken in our risotto that was raw/undercooked. They didn’t even comp us for the meal and the just recooked the raw chicken and placed it back on the same plate. Service was poor overall. We had to ask for water refills many times. We had to ask for salt and pepper since it wasn’t on the table. After going out to a less expensive and “fancy” restaurant in town for dinner the same day, it’s apparent that this placed was overpriced and underwhelming. We don’t mind paying for good food and service but I do mind not getting respect and correction for bad service, especially at their prices.

    I had the vegan plate and the vegetables were over cooked and mushy. If I want over cooked mushy vegetables I’ll cook them at home. This is the second disappointing meal I’ve had at EDK in the last 2 months. I have friends visiting next week and we will go to the girl and the fig, where I’ve eaten for many years and have never been disappointed. Please make more of an effort, as I would love to add you back to my go-to Sonoma restaurant
