Weekend trip to Sonoma - Anniversary dinner at El Dorado Kitchen. Lovely restaurant with great food, service and atmosphere. A little expensive but did not disappoint on its reputation.

Because there is no requirement for proof of vac., EDK was packed, and noise level was up. Food, as always was excellent.

I have eaten here 3 times. The food is ok... it simply isn't fresh. The wait staff is on performance and doesn't match the energy of your party. My most recent visit was my third and final try to make this restaurant work. The restaurant itself is beautiful. unfortunately, that is the single virtue and not enough.

El Dorado Kitchen was delightful for a very special lunch.
Service and food were exceptional.
We sat under a fig tree however and the figs were falling. We laughed about it but it took away from the

Lovely setting on the Sonoma Square eating outside on EDK's back patio. Service was exceptional. Cynthia and her assistants made the experience even better...sweet and kind. The food was delicious. The crispy rock fish with leeks was a major winner. The patio could use a couple of fans when the area is partially enclosed as it can get sticky...solved easily by unzipping the closure. All in all, everyone was happy from the ceviche, salads, carpaccio to the desserts... a return visit is already planned. Thank you, EDK.

Winderful experience. We sat in back patio. We each had a salad ( mine was heirloom tomato, his burrata)- both excellent. We split the paella - i dont see how one person could eat it alone, its huge. It was also excellent. Highly recommend.

We have been here a couple times before and loved it. This time, we waited 30 minutes just to get our drinks. The food was mediocre at best, The waitress was overworked and annoyed. We ordered a couple glasses of wine, she suggested a bottle… probably our fault for not asking, but she put an $80 bottle of wine on our tab. We left a lunch for $200. If it was amazing, I wouldn’t complain. It was NOT amazing!, It wasn’t even good! Not sure I will return.

Outdoor patio seating was pleasant with tables well-spaced. Service was attentive, although the approach was a little too familiar and comic for our taste. The food, however, was excellent. A very good dinner.

My Wife and I went to El Dorado Kitchen to celebrate My 62nd birthday. We traveled from Vacaville and arrived about an hour early. I called to see if they had a bar or lounge where we could hang out until our reserved seating time. The hostess recommended that We come in early and we could sit at our table until we were ready to order which worked out well for us. The service was wonderful. Our server, Zeva, was attentive and handled our inquiries about certain menu items well, as well did the bus men who never left our water glasses empty or allowed the empty dishes to remain on the table for long. My only complaint was that our Maine meal the Filet mignon was
mot cooked to perfection. We both ordered ours to be cooked medium well and they were both served well done, but we did not complain as not to add to the time it would have taken to get our meal again. On the other hand the half Lobster tails which were the other part of our course were served perfectly. At the end of meal they Brought my desert order out with a single candle and a happy birthday song! Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and will be retuning.

If you are in Sonoma, eating at El Dorado kitchen is a must. Food, atmosphere, service - all wonderful. My husband's pork chop was overcooked and our waiter responded immediately and replaced it with a perfectly cooked pork chop in just a few minutes, and showed genuine concern that his meal wasn't perfect the first time. Everything was great and we will return!!

Celebrated my wife’s and her cousin’s 50th bday here. Overall the experience and service was great. There was a good mix of food options. My wife and I are vegetarian and had the risotto and tofu bowl (served cold). I recommend this place and hope to have the chance to fo back.

We sat out on the patio. It was so beautiful and relaxing..just what we needed!
The shrimp tacos were delicious as was the strawberry/blueberry crisp and the churros.
I live in Sonoma and have always wanted to have lunch at EDK. I was not disappointed.
I highly recommend this restaurant.

Charming restaurant adjacent to Sonoma Plaza. Good wine list of both by the glass and bottle selections. Paella was very good as was the black cod. Service was very good. I would definitely recommend have a reservation. Plan to arrive early as on the street parking may be limited
