    Food was underwhelming based on the reviews that we saw. Would not recommend to friends. The girl and the fig was far better.

    We were greeted by a friendly hostess and seated outside immediately. Our server was handling many tables, but arrived soon and explained the specials. I ordered the heirloom tomato salad with arugula and goat cheese. While the tomatoes and dressing were delicious, it came with one small slice of tasteless stale bread topped with goat cheese. It ruined the salad for me. I scraped off the cheese and left the bread. My husband ordered a fish entrée and was very happy with it. We enjoyed the profiteroles for dessert. The inside of the restaurant is beautiful but a bit cold from air conditioner. I've stayed at the El Dorado Hotel twice before and loved it, but this was my first dinner. It would be fair to say that it might depend upon what one orders.

    The service was quick and efficient. The waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable and helped me decide on what meal and wine pairing was best. And he was so kind. I was there by myself and he took the time out to watch my things at my table while I went to the restroom. Just above and beyond. And the food was INCREDIBLE. An overall amazing experience that I would do again in a heartbeat.

    The house made fettuccine"carbonara" was MAGNIFICENT! I didn't eat it all so I could take some home for my husband to eat for lunch. I wanted him to taste how delicious it was! Can't wait to come back and have it again! Our sever was so great! I can't remember his name but we were there August 1 at 4:45pm. He had a French accent. He was really nice and did such a good job taking care of us! Thank you!!!

    The food is excellent and the portions generous. All of the things we ordered (paella, scallops and a Caesar salad) were lovely. I lusted after the fries , but was glad not to have ordered them: too much food. They will be great as an lunch accompaniment sometime in the near future.

    One of the most unexpected dining experiences in Sonoma. The food was fresh and more than delicious while the drinks were also made with amazing attention to our palate. We had the Caesar salad to start, paella & salmon dinner as entrees, and churros to end. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone visiting Sonoma and be sure to tell them to try everything on the menu. To add to the food, our server was very knowledgeable of the menu and helped us immensely with our dinner selections.

    With the ratings and the website description of their chef, I expected better. The seafood paella was bland and shrimp were over cooked. Plenty of rice if that's your thing though. Filet was good but not incredible. Probably the highlights were the service, ambience and the espresso martini. Disappointing.

    Highly recommend the Nicoise salad, which is the only classic Nicoise you can find in Sonoma right now. Also love the duck confit hash, the poke bowl, the muscles and raw oysters. Solid kitchen - the food is always good. Good wine list, generous per glass pours. Cocktails made classically and correctly, which is also hard to find in Sonoma right now.
