Sonoma Wine Bar & Restaurant - Heights
Wine was terrible
Sorry to hear you didn't enjoy your wine. It's part of our standard steps of service to pour a small taste for approval even for wines ordered by the glass. If this didn't happen for you, I do apologize. I will address your feedback with the staff. The team members are pretty good at providing recommendations and assisting each guest in finding the perfect wine or beer from the menu.
Indicated on reservation it was a Birthday when reservation was made.
Not sure if hostess should have mentioned it to the waiter, but I did not bring it up, as I felt it was already done.
If your restaurant doesn’t do anything special for birthdays, that’s fine, however no reason to give the customer an option to indicate it is a special occasion.
A simple acknowledgement would have been nice.
This is what separates a 5 star restaurant from a 3/4 star restaurant.
We sat outside and for most of the night we were alone up there. This was perfect.
I would have appreciated the waiter checking on us a little more often.
Running out of water is a major service issue.
We were ready to order a bottle of wine and enjoy the rest of the night.
Waiter never came back.
We asked to take the rest of our food to go, that didn’t happen, as I indicated the waiter never returned.
No problems, we left and went to another wine bar and ordered a bottle and the waiter was more attentive.
Sadly, a few things like this, gives customers reasons not to return and to share their experiences with others.
Houston is a great place for options and a subpar performance. This is what drives customers to other businesses.
Thank you for your feedback. We have discussed with the team and reviewed our systems to make sure this doesn't happen again. We do hope you will give us another chance.
Overall experience was very good, setting, reception, service quality of food and presentation.
Only criticism was the table location was at a pinch point to the flow of customers and staff which compromised the otherwise good experience.
Loved Sonoma- Heights!! Food was amazing and took many wine flights, felt like we were in a tasting room in Sonoma, CA. Definitely will be back.
We made a reservation and we were still seated at an awful table. It was so loud we could barely hear each other. I’ve been here many times and it is always really loud but this was too much. It was also very, very warm. Won’t be going back any time soon.
Exceptional! Great food, great wine and fabulous ambience and attentive staff!!!!
I felt as if I had taken an actual flight to Sonoma!
Wonderful experience as always
Chef JaNel is an absolute master, food was amazing, will be back soon!!!
Awesome time. We be back for sure.
Birthday dinner. We were tucked in the corner by the back door. I made reservations for 6pm a couple days earlier. Which is why you make reservations, I felt we should of get a better table.
Such a fantastic experience! The wait staff was wonderful and gave us fabulous recommendations. Loved everything we had!
My girlfriend and I were introducing our parents to one another for the first time, and we choose Sonoma because of the delicious food and friendly atmosphere. Holly took great care of us, and we had a fantastic time.
Sonoma has been one of the best wine bars in Houston Heights. The bartenders and waiters are always ready to serve and take care of their clients. Sonoma is the best in their class.
Sonoma is one of my favorite places. Fantastic food & wine list, excellent service and setting.
Carlos is the best employee ever!!!
Love this place, friendly staff!
My husband and I were trying Sonoma for the first time on a long-overdue date night. We opted to sit on the upstairs patio since it was such a nice evening. However, the seating was very tight and unfortunately the person sitting behind us was SO LOUD and his incessant talking basically ruined our evening. Furthermore, the pinot noir wine flights we ordered were less than impressive. I've had better wine from HEB. As far as food, I will say the portions are generous especially for the price. Not sure we will go back. Overall experience was a 3 of 5.
We sat up on the rooftop. It was a nice evening with a breeze. Service was swift. The food was delicious and the wine flights were delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed our evening.
The food was amazing, the waitress was extremely knowledgeable, and my wife thoroughly enjoyed the ambiance.
Great restaurant with fine ambiance.
Three of us visited for a couple of hours with a bottle of wine and some yummy appetizers. The wait staff was friendly and helpful. We arrived early, so parking was no problem, but when we left, cars were parked down the street.
Very nice place. Quiet, busy. Our server was a little overloaded, but was ok. The duck confit pizza was fantastic!
Service was a bit slow but, the good food made up fo it.
Wine selection is great but food is even better. Was on a date and had the Sonoma pizza.. honestly best pizza I’ve had to date! Luckily I had couple pizza left over and enjoyed the following morning. Gave it 4 stars because I was expecting a nicer set up. The restaurant was a bit squished together but that’s the only con. Oh crab cake is a must as well!
We found Sonoma quite nice! The food was excellent as well as the wine and service. We would
definitely go again.
The happy hour prices were great on food and drink. And the appetizers and pizza we chose for dinner were awesome. Very nice place!
Always love the selection and the roof. One of my favorite places to go
The prices seem a little steep for what you get, we had a good time and will go back for a special occasion
Had our first visit last Friday and all was good. Chris,our server,was especially pleasing.
Had the short rib and the pork tenderloin with a bottle of Gamay Noir. Finished with the cheescake mousse and an americano.
We will be back.

Slow service. Didn't really care to check us in. We had to wait 15-20 min. although we had reserved a table
I've never seen Sonoma Heights be as crowded as it was this time. The service, which is usually excellent, went down a bit this time owing to the crowd, which is understandable.
A favorite place whether an ordinary day or special occasion!
Enjoyed our 2 year anniversary here and couldn’t have been more pleased with the experience. Service was spectacular. Our server picked out a perfect wine for us to enjoy and the meat and cheese plate was delicious. Highly recommend
Our server Jennifer was helpful with suggestions. And answering Questions. The salmon was very well
Always a nice atmosphere. Very good mother's day brunch.
Food is good and the wine selection is excellent. I was not in love with the ambient nor the service but I’m willing to give it a second try if a friend suggests to.
One of our favorite places to go in Houston. Our home is in EaDo so Sonoma is easily accessible. Parking has never been a problem. The menu is diverse enough for the pickiest of eaters. Highly recommended!
Loved it. Howver. Showervice was a little slow at times.
We sat on the rooftop and it was gorgeous night in Houston! It made for a wonderful date night out in the city. Great service as well.
Great food and service
