    Overpriced for what we ordered. My salmon wasn’t too bad, but smallish serving. My husband’s lamb chops were a rip off at $37. Even I could see from his plate they weren’t anything special, not even the seasonings. There was a token helping of polenta/grits and a small serving of vegetables. Sonoma used to be one of “go to” places that we used to look forward to going to. The restaurant is now half it’s size, not busy at all. We will not be back for dinner.

    This was a lunch with an old friend . Our waiter was Doug and he was fabulous! Very attentive but not intrusive so we were able to catch up. I had the spinach salad and added sal on cooked medium. Cooked perfectly! My friend had the salmon special and she raced also. I love this restaurant. They’ll be remodeling for ten days but I can’t wait to go back!

    Had a wonderful date night at Sonoma, with great food, and a great waitress. Our waitress took the time to explain all the menus and give suggestions on the food, and wine. The meal was tapas style which worked perfectly for our dinner. I would definitely recommend this place for a date night, but just a caution for all daters who are paying for the meal, it can get a tad bit pricey.

    Great Friday evening dinner with friends. Loved the Rose’ flight. Menu is small, and we enjoyed that aspect. We had mussels, oyster app, burgers, and the beet salad. All was well presented and super yummy :)
