We had a wonderful time at EDK (as the locals say!) The food was delicious and there were quite a number of options to accommodate my friend with Celiac. Our server Fernando was incredible. His energy was contagious and his care and concern over our dietary restrictions was top notch. Highly recommend eating here!

An excellent choice for outdoor brunch. Remains a go to choice for reliable dining. Not the finest of fine dining but reliable and especially on the rear patio pleasant.
Would not recommend the tables on the street or sidewalk.

After all these years, this was our first time to "EDK" and it was fantastic. Very pleasant surrounding, nice variety on the menu and an excellent staff to keep the food and drink coming. Special shout out to Rosie for her honest and helpful opinions and professional service. The corn cold chowder soup appetizer was memorable and always happy to see paella on ANY menu. The fried chicken was also a standout. Looking forward to making this spot a regular.

We stayed overnight at the hotel and made a reservation for dinner and were so impressed that we went back for breakfast the next morning if that tells you anything. The menu is unique and varied, any palette would find something lovely, fresh and tasty. My dinner entre' was a creamy mushroom risotto and my partner had the filet mignon which he said was cooked perfect. The breakfast menu is also unique with me having a nutritious "taco bowl" and my partner the huevos rancheros all made with fresh, local ingredients. Whether your staying at the hotel or just visiting Sonoma for the day, I would recommend the El Dorado Kitchen to any one for any meal.

Had the same dinner last week. Excellent
Tonight it was served cold. My favorite part is mashed potatoes and gravy. It was cold and i swear the potatoes were fro a box! Of course we will return but not for awhile.

I have eaten here many times and usually the food is excellent especially the hamburgers, which I think are the best in Sonoma. This time I ordered the shrimp tacos and was very disappointed; the shrimp was cold and the tacos soggy so I won't be ordering it again. My friends ordered the poke tuna salad and hamburger which were both excellent.

Exceptionally pleasant lunch on the patio at EDK. The ceviche was good, but should have had some heat (Serrano pepper) and acid. Lemon was requested and provided rapidly. The mussels were excellent as was the tuna burger. The burger turned out to be the next night’s dinner. The waitstaff was excellent. Our waiter even had the mussels and burger split just because he knew we would share.

My daughter and I took a day trip to Sonoma and had a delicious lunch here on the back patio before going wine-tasting. The ambiance, food, and overall experience were great. The service was OK - everything was served nicely and hot, etc. but the waiter seemed to always be in a mad rush - rather than stopping by the table to ask how things were, if we needed anything, if we wanted another glass of wine or coffee or dessert - he just sort of flew by the table, not really stopping, but instead talking at us while he was rushing by to go somewhere else. It was sort of odd and we both noticed it. And while the restaurant was busy, there seemed to be plenty of wait staff. Otherwise 5 stars and we’d definitely return.

It was my first time dining at this restaurant, but I was excited to try it because I saw all the good reviews. The food was pretty good. However, I was a bit surprised to see a different menu when we arrived. Earlier this week I went on their website to take a look at their menu and was excited because their menu sounded good. I was just a little bit sad because I feel like whatever menu they have on their website should be the same menu they give you when you dine. But that’s just a small detail, overall my experience was great. Our waiter was great and was friendly. The atmosphere was spectacular. I would come back and dine here again.

usually, our meals there have been fantastic--this time around, the entrees were a disappointment: fried chicken. our waiter, while mostly excellent, made a point of not being enough bar tenders, which seemed to support why our drink was late in arriving. the appetizers were lovely: salad and italian meat.

As a local Concierge and Sonoma for the past 10 years I recently moved to town so now I can enjoy restaurants that I referred to others on a regular basis. The white person seemed a little busy with many tables it took us a while for her to greet us but once she did and we had a great experience
