Food and service was great! Didn’t like our table and we were seated to an empty patio! Server let us move.

Though initially when we walked up to the establishment, the outdoor waitress was prejudging us and not very friendly. I had family in from out of town and I have heard nothing but great things. So when are our table was ready, the very friendly waiter took us to our table into the garden and the rest was magical! Daniel our waiter was awesome! Professional, yet fun! The food spoke for itself - calamari and the chicken sandwich, may sound simple, but it was absolutely fantastic ! All around great place!

Outdoor seating in the courtyard was great up until the flies started their attack. Not sure if it was the table location near the bar window or if others had the same issue. That, on top of a so-so crispy-shrimp tacos made for a “let’s not do this again moment.” The lunch menu is very non-inspiring, which surprised me because I think their breakfast menu is very inspiring (and the sidewalk tables don’t appear to have problems with flies). We’ll return for breakfasts and probably dinner, but not a lunchtime favorite.

The patio has always been a favorite for our visits to EDK. The pandemic makes it even more delightful since it feels like coming home.

This was our third visit to El Dorado Kitchen. Everything was very good. Under the present circumstances, we are still getting used to when to wear masks when approached by wait staff. Overall, it was enjoyable.

Even though we are going though Covid, it didn’t feel like it. They took all safety precaution but didn’t feel uncomfortable in any way. The service was fantastic, food was delicious and atmosphere in the back patio was upbeat and a lot of fun.
Can’t want to go back!!!

Saturday afternoon brunch outside. The Service was excellent, with occasional checks for beverages and anything else. The short rib special was excellent. Since we were outside the noise level was very comfortable. Of course the excellent service and food is pricey, not unexpected.

Due to COVID restrictions we were seated outside away from others for a Sunday brunch. The service was attentive and not intrusive. Our food selections were varied and everyone in our party of 4 enjoyed the meal, including the tiramisu dessert!

We went back for a second night and they treated us like old friends. There was a bride and groom who had eloped dining nearby and the staff gave them a classy memorable evening. I had the Tuna Poke dish and it was fabulous. Hubby had the NY Strip and said the med rare cook was perfect. If I lived in Sonoma I would become a true “old friend” to this restaurant.

Sat in the patio area out back because of Covid-19. Very pleasant the day we were there. The server's did a great job bringing food outside since it was longer from the kitchen. The paella was great. Overall a very enjoyable lunch.
