Eggs Benedict were terrific
My friend and I had late morning brunch reservations. The dining room was no more than half full upon arrival. We began with mimosas, which arrived almost room temperature. We each ordered a starter and an entree, all of which were hot items. The server brought all four dishes to the table at the same time. The food was quite good; I'm sure the entrees would have been even better had they not sat at our table while we ate our starters. I did not expect to experience a basic service lapse in an upscale restaurant.
Israel was a great waiter! Great recommendation. They new I was coming in for my 7th anniversary so they printed that on the menu. Great touch!
Outstanding food! Lovely place to celebrate my birthday
Outstanding service, excellent food. Menu was small, but very interesting - and delicious. A must go anytime in Sonoma.
Food was delicious. Atmosphere was amazing and service was impeccable
Nice contemporary food and very good service. Lovely dinner
Absolutely wonderful evening. We celebrated our Anniversary & El Dorado Kitchen could not have made it more special. Thank you so much!
A wonderful anniversary celebration!
I've never been unhappy with a meal here. I keep going back for the paella and it never disappoints. My wife's salmon was tasty and cooked just right. An order of truffle fries before dinner started it off well. We'll be back again.
El Dorado never disappoints. The food is unique, the service is great and we always are treated to a special occasion.
The staff is very attentive. Went with my mom. Portions are large we split the Risotto and the amazing Truffle Fries. Highly recommend this restaurant.
An inventive menu with twists on old favorites. Very attentive service but they did seem more focused on turning the table than allowing you to linger. Also, I did not care for the cocktail I chose. Would I return? Yes.
We went to El Dorado Kitchen for dinner having never been here before. My wife and I were both very impressed with the quality of the food, the excellent service, the cleanliness and ambiance of this restaurant. She ordered a bowl of steamed mussels in a white wine sauce with fennel while I ordered their special homemade fettucini entree. I can highly recommend this restaurant based on our experience.
Always a joy to come here, the food and service is top class. Came here for my birthday with a group and it did not disappoint. Our waitress was fabulous and so good at her job. The food was delicious and so well presented. We finished with some tasty cocktails. Would highly recommend!
Great dinner, great service. Thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish!
Everything looks 'right' about this restaurant. Nice table settings, linens, silverware, the servers are dressed well, the setting looks professional ... and then the food comes. The food on the menu sounds interesting, but somehow the execution is a little off. We had a steak sandwich that was juicy - so juicy the bun became soggy. We had a mole dish where the sauce seemed to be lacking chocolate. We had a gnocchi appetizer that seemed rather heavy for an appetizer. Based on recommendations we expected better.
EDK never fails to impress. The chef is an indispensable ingredient to a great meal. Never fear taking a change on something you feel takes a special touch to prepare, the chef will not disappoint. We had a lobster on polenta appetizer and I had the wild mushroom linguine carbonara, both were fantastic. My guests were San Franciscans with high expectations and even with one being a vegetarian, they raved about their entrees. My only complaint, if there was anything that wasn't 100%, was the waiter, although very attentive and accommodating , he spouted out the specials and any answers to questions about the menu with such speed, it was not understandable. We should have asked him to slow down but we didn't want to be rude. Other than that this is one of Sonoma's finest eating venues.
EDK was exceptional. We celebrated a 10 year anniversary there, and the service was above and beyond. The host was welcoming and accommodated our early arrival. We received an anniversary greeting right at the beginning. Our menus even had "Happy 10th Anniversary" on it. The server was knowledgeable, consultative and attentive. The service staff was so professional, yet it was still a comfortable environment.
The food was INCREDIBLE. The paella, carbonara, and truffle fries were fantastic. If you are adventurous, try the king trumpet mushrooms or the beef carpaccio.
We ate at another restaurant the next day, but wished we went back to EDK instead.
Consider the service and food quality, this was a great value. I don't come out to Sonoma often, but will plan a special trip just to dine at EDK. It has become our new special place.
We go to El Dorado regularly for family gatherings. The service is very good and food, especially paella, is excellent. They have made nice accommodations for my handicapped mother. Highly recommended for brunch and special occasions.
Lived in the Valley for 25 years. Have dined at EDK many times. Service always good , but the food is not consistent even with the same menu. All 3 of us having lunch were disappointed with our selections
We had a group that included a celiac, a vegan and a pesce vegan, and a meat lover!! There were plenty choices for all and the staff were very knowledgable and accommodating. it is one of the more expensive places in town but the quality is commensurate with the price. We had a wonderful meal.
It was perfect except for the woman at the next table who was extremely loud on her cell phone. Someone should have said something. Other than that we are always happy w/ El Dorado Kitchen.
A truly wonderful experience. Our waiter was very professional, friendly and attentive without being intrusive. Our meals were served promptly, presentation was very good and was quite delicious. The ambiance was very nice with very attractive decor.
Great place for Sunday brunch!
Food and service was excellent !
I had been wanting to try El Dorado Kitchen for some time, based on recommendations from friends and their online menu. When a good friend wanted to meet for lunch, I suggested it immediately. Our dining experience met and exceeded all expectations. The food, presentation and service were excellent. The ingredients were fresh and perfectly seasoned. My friend chose oysters to start, and the Ahi tuna Nicoise salad. I had the beet salad, followed by fish and chips. We are both very particular about the freshness of seafood, and it could not have been more so. The service was friendly, timely, and professional. We opted for early lunch reservations and a more quiet part of the restaurant, so the noise level was not excessive. I am looking forward to more dining experiences at EDK!
We had went by during the day to check out the menu and were very excited but once we got there we realized the menu we had seen was the lunch menus. I asked the waiter if it was possible to get a dish from lunch he did not believe it was possible but asked anyway and found out they would be able to make it. The meal was excellent. They also went above and beyond giving us recommendations for the evening.
Best salade nisoise ever
The Mussels were tiny. Probably the tiniest I have ever eaten. My husband's NY steak was bland. Ambiance was nice, but food just ok.
We love this place. Will definitely come back again. My husband has the fish and chips and I had half dozen oysters and Ahi tuna tartare. Nice dining setting.
Always love coming here.. too bad it was too cold to sit outside.
The food was amazing! The staff were fabulous! A great night out!!
Came in for dinner with my girlfriend. We were celebrating her birthday. I had put in a special request when I made the reservation letting them know I would like to make it extra special for her, and indeed they did just that. Welcome us with some complimentary champagne, customized menus with happy birthday on them and a nice little candle lit dessert to end the day, and a happy birthday song. Thanks for making it special! Really fine dining with great ambience and great service. The food was also pretty good. We had the seafood paella and New York steak.l which I recommend. Oh and definitely try their Brussels sprouts. The deep fried and come out really crispy and yummy. Highly recommend his place.
Excellent food and service as always. Love the Truffle Fries! Go to place in Sonoma!
Great location - right on the square and I liked the ambiance but not outstanding food, price wasn't painful.
Loved it! Great brussel sprouts and service!
Enjoyable lunch, however the glass of Chardonnay was limited, at best
Excellent service and food, made for a very special Valentine’s Day.
This is an excellent location for a working lunch meeting...food and ambience are supportive.
