    Wonderful Service. Great food. Must have the french fries! Short ribs were unbelieveably delicious. Salmon was succulent and tasty. Only kock is that they did not have a somellier available for a party of 10 on Sunday at 5:30., and the manager did not come to see us. Disappointing. But all in all - and terrific restaurant.

    Fantastic time. We sat inside so it was a little noisier, but okay. Great food. I had chicken Caesar and girlfriend had mixed greens with chicken. Generous portions and high quality. Oh and the truffle fries were yummy. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Very enjoyable.

    We had a great experience at El Dorado Kitchen. The ambiance was nice, service was friendly and food was very good. I ordered the carbonara and I honestly had to stop myself from eating all of it and then licking the plate - it was so good. It was creamy, fresh and perfectly seasoned. I also had the pisco drink before dinner and it was delish. Hubby had the paella and enjoyed it. There were nice chunks of shrimp, salmon, calamari and mussels (I think) scattered on top of the flavorful yellow rice. We enjoyed and honestly, I’ve never had a bad meal here.

    El Dorado Kitchen is an excellent choice for dining in Sonoma! There were four of us and we shared the shrimp ceviche (amazing!), 2 chopped salads, paella, and one guest had the burger. We finished with the apple berry crumble. YUM!

    We had a lovely Valentines Day dinner ! Our waiter was Hank who was just so accommodating and pleasant. My husband had the filet mignon which he said was cooked perfectly. I had the Ricotta/Spinach ravioli with shrimp in lemon cream sauce that was delicious! The wine Hank recommended to pair with his filet was right on. We rarely have dessert, but ordered the Huckleberry cobbler with vanilla ice cream again, delicious. The vibe was energetic and the flow of diners was well paced. In all a perfect evening with amazing meal. Many thanks to manager Ian as well for taking good care of us!

    We had a Valentine’s Day dinner at EDK and enjoyed it very much. We sat in the smaller room off the hotel lobby rather than the main dining room because it is less noisy and we were actually able to carry on a conversation. Our server, Armando, was very good. I really enjoyed my beet salad with citrus. I had the short ribs and my husband had the paella. Both were excellent . The huckleberry/apple crisp for dessert was delicious. Great place to go for a special occasion.

    We had a wonderful meal at El Dorado Kitchen. The maitake mushroom appetizer was really unique and very tasty. The tuna tartare was good, not great. We had the salmon, short rib, pappardelle with wild boar ragu and fettuccini carbonara. All were excellent, even the bread! Our server and the rest of the staff were friendly and efficient. We will be back :)

    Brunch. Bevy’s of EDK Bloody Mary and Two-Headed Serpent. Both were just enough flavor and alcohol, reliable and very good. Bread course with infused olive oil and cornbread ‘muffin’ served oven warm did not disappoint. Ham and Gruyère omelettes were flavored packed and portioned as a full meal for sure. Attentive, friendly service. Quiet, off-season Sunday.

    Despite the restaurant being in a hotel, it's quite good and a popular place amongst locals. We asked all around before making a reservation and we were not disappointed. Shelby took great care of us and we had a ball laughing and cutting up with her. Service was on point. Variety and quality of food also excellent. And, again, for a hotel, the pricing was reasonable and not over inflated. Would definitely go back!

    Exceptionally good menu! (Lunch) And a great, but expensive, wine selection. We tried a Chard from France that was fantastic. Domaine de la Janasse, 2020, Reserve. I have sense purchased a case. Our lunches were simply fantastic: spicy shrimp tacos and Pealla. The latter was "as good as it get" this side of Spain! Only issue, a lingering post-Covid matter, was slow service. Overall, definitely a place I will return. Gene

    I'm sorry to report that two of the four entrees ordered were not good. My mother said that the vegetable risotto she ordered was the worst that he had ever tested. Over spiced and strangely spiced. I ordered the lobster sandwich and the lobster was tough and tasteless. Definite disappointment.

    I often order the lobster sandwich because it's usually so good but yesterday the lobster was either over-cooked or old. It was very tough. On the other hand, my husband had the hash and it was amazing.

    Our waitress was absolutely incredible. So patient, attentive, and her awareness was on point. I can’t remember her name, unfortunately. My sister, mom, myself, and my sister’s almost 2 year old son. Our waitress brought about 4 different booster chairs and a highchair to size up Paxton perfectly. She put his order in first, complimented his behavior, she had a huge smile on her face each time she came to our table. Just incredible. No doubt we will be going back.

    The food was amazing. Every dish we ordered was better than we hoped. The only thing I would have to say is that we did have to wait quite a while for our cups of coffee and to order our food. I don't know if it was just because we came at the very end of the breakfast window, but it seemed to take an unusually long time for our food and drinks to arrive. We will definitely go back, though. Their food is amazing!!
