    Sad to say the menu has changed. The portions are notably smaller and the prices are higher. The food was mediocre at best.

    We ordered the grilled cauliflower, hamburger, and two pizzas. All of the food, with the exception of our meat lover's pizza, were pretty good. We had to send our pizza back because it was not cooked all the way...this was in addition to waiting at least 10 additional minutes while one of our party had been served already. They returned the pizza back to us with burnt edges and still uncooked dough. Not sure what happened with the pizza oven or perhaps a new cook...hopefully it will be better next time.

    Palooza is great pub food, ideal lunch spot when wine tasting through Kenwood or Glen Ellen region. We have lunched here often and have not been disappointed.

    We guess we were that table where everything goes wrong- way too many mishaps( unwashed table,sticky silverware) , send backs (raw fries, wrong drink order…). The online menu is not what is really offered. Very disappointing to have gone for grilled cheese, Brussels and lobster Mac n cheese - none of our picks were available, nor was there pizza - yikes - hope you can turn the place around -

    During the height of the pandemic the service was off but understandably so. However things back and the service is better than EVER and so is the food. A wide variety of items on the menu so there's something for everyone. Short ribs with polenta, ruben, Chicago dog, Brussels sprouts, and shrimp chowder...all OUTSTANDING!

    Indoor dining area chilly with draft every time a door opened. Staff courteous, friendly and helpful. Metal chairs scraping against concrete floors annoying. Wife had a spinach salad but stems were still on spinach. Should’ve been destemmed.

    The service was extraordinarily slow and my order was wrong. The redeeming factor was the manager removed my meal from the check and gave me my correct meal to go as I was leaving.

    This was our second try at Palooza, just as disappointing as the first. Chicken sandwich like sawdust, sent it back for passable hamburger. Bacon on The Guy’s burger near-raw. Fries pretty good. Ordering and paying at entry irritating. All doors wide COVID precautions resulting, with no heaters, in a chilly experience. Nearby, so a shame, but we won’t be back for thirds.

    No indoor seating which is no longer a restriction. You order at the counter yet a waitress still comes to your table which doesn’t make sense. No ambiance. Terrible wine selection. I’m pretty sure my salmon was frozen. The risotto was really good. My husbands pizza was good. My brownie dessert was not good, the brownie tasted frozen as well. The staff were all friendly and we had good service. This place reminds me of how restaurants were operating at the height of covid. We have moved on from that.

    Conveniently off of beautiful Sonoma Highway, in Wine Country, Palooza is a real gem. A well-crafted menu with local ingredients, craft brew selections, wine (of course), and a full bar, make this a cool destination spot for some deelish food and innovative drinks outside on their spacious patio. This restaurant/brewery has live music to entertain you, as well. I enjoyed cool Blues and Retro live music while enjoying a lamb burger for lunch last Sunday. My companion had ahi nachos, along with a wood-fired pizza. Our afternoon here was sublime!!
