    The service was fantastic! We got there early and decided to get a drink at the bar. The hostess didn’t call our phone or give us a pager. She remembered us and came to find us when our table was ready. Our server was exceptionally friendly, and the staff was efficient. We really enjoyed the mixed green salad and carpaccio appetizer, but the famed seafood paella was a disappointment. Very little flavor. The ambiance was lovely.

    El Dorado Restaurant is located at the base of the El Droado hotel. Located on the Sonoma square with street parking, the restaurant offers indoor and outdoor seating with a full bar and a great wine list. They have alot of menu options, many items have a Latino flair which really adds something different. Our parties favorite were the Seafood Paella and Pasta Carbonara with Poblano Cream. It was so good we got an extra order of each to take home! ALSO... they sell tacos out of their kitchen window! The side restaurant is called Cantina and is awesome for grab and go. You can order online or at the window. Take home or walk across the street and eat in the park. Definitely recommend

    We had two waiters and neither paid attention to us. We had to track one down throughout the meal. The food arrived for three of us and we had to wait for the fourth. Our eggs Benedict were cold and only one of my had sauce. We have loved EDK for many years but now find the food is inconsistent to poor. What has happened? Lack of trained cooks?

    Unique and varied menu - something for everyone. The service was ok - half of us got our soup and the other half waited...and waited (the server forgot). When we were finished with the meal the server didn't ask if we wanted anything else..and we all wanted coffee..so the service was not great for this level of dining. The food was delicious however.

    Very good service - food was just ok - might have been our choice (mushroom risotto with salmon) lacking in flavor - needed more salt. Lemon pudding cake with passion fruit sorbet dessert was yummy.

    Sadly from the minute we sat down we felt rushed. Our waitress did not personally engage or communicate any specials, actually said “I already told you everything.” The energy of the restaurant was “frenetic and loud” we could hear pots dropping in the kitchen and someone yelling out the orders. The food was underwhelmiing…just o.k. We were bummed as we were there to celebrate 2 birthdays.

    When we walked in we noticed how noisy it was. The service was great. We started with sharing the beat salad which had too much dressing. My Paella was oily and the rice was overcooked and dry. The portions were generous and enough to take home for another dinner.

    the steak was awesome, the greens were not good with not good dressing, the soup was below par, the salad was so so, the ceviche was so so, the drink was very good. A little disappointing for $100+. Good steak is always worthwhile, although a tiny filet for $45 is a bit steep, since the go withs were not really any good.

    My daughter and I wanted to introduce an out of town friend to one of our favorite restaurants. So, you can imagine how disappointed we were when she barely touched her paella. We all agreed it wasn’t what was expected. I had the sole and it was just ordinary. I really miss the Poke Bowl, and wish it was on the dinner menu. My daughter had the salmon which was good. The Burrata was wonderful and so was my espresso. Your servers are alway friendly and knowledgeable, but we all agreed that our next visit will be back to The Girl and the Fig.

    Food was prepared to perfection with the freshest ingredients. Flavor combinations were off the chart. Ate outside under the 164 yr old fig tree on a beautiful Sonoma evening. Our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive without being omnipresent. Menu options are varied appealing to a wide range of customer tastes and preferences. We highly recommend a visit to El Dorado Kitchen.

    A very good, first night in Sonoma dining experience, and our meals were very well prepared. we chose to dine outside in their patio area, which was nice, but service was a bit slow...possibly due to staffing issues post-pandemic, but both of our entrees were presented well and very flavorful.
