Food was great. However you cannot talk due to volume of noise. Too loud for a business lunch.
A large group came in for lunch while we were there, and once they arrived, it was almost too loud to hear others at my same table. Service was good once our order was finally taken, but our server took his time taking our order.
On a rare date night without the baby, we chose Sonoma but were disappointed. The server had no input on what wine to chose stating that they do not like wine themselves (even though this is advertised as a wine bar). The portions were very tiny considering the price and could have been easily recreated at home. We were underwhelmed with the salmon. The ambience was loud and the seating was not cozy or intimate like we hoped for based off online photos. Overall, we wished we had spent $100 differently or somewhere else.

This was our first experience with Sonoma. We had tickets to the Folger Theatre and got a note from them suggesting Sonoma for a pre-theatre dinner. Since it is just a five minute walk from there to the Folger, we thought this was a good choice. The restaurant followed up with me on the morning of our reservation, just to confirm. We were seated immediately, but the tables in the back are just too close together for any private conversation and they happily moved us to a table in the front window--excellent choice.
Our waiter was very pleasant and attentive until it came time for the bill--we had to track him down.
We ate pretty casual food and my burger was very tasty.
The wine list is quite good and quite expensive, in my opinion.
The ambiance is very pleasant, kind of a "warehouse" chic feel. It is very noisy with all the hard surfaces.
All in all, a very pleasant dinner.
I think my pasta was a little undercooked because it was all stuck together but the flavors were fantastic
The mussels and brussels sprouts were excellent - some of the best I've had. Wine a little pricey - but that seems to be the norm for DC these days. The waitress was excellent. Really enjoyed the food.
Brunch service was slow. Uninspiring menu of mediocre food.
Food was fantastic, service was on point, atmosphere was lovely. My friends were really impressed!
Very very slow kitchen and waitress was quite inattentive. It was a busy Saturday night so I know that presents challenges, but we arrived 6:15 pm and had 8:00 pm theater tickets 3 blocks away. We had to rush through the main course and dessert in order to arrive on time. Should have been plenty of time for a leisurely meal. Also the food was just ok and the some of the portions were very small. The dessert served was not the right one for one diner.
