    The service cannot be beat! The bartender suggested the PERFECT red wine for my friend and for me, an excellent champagne by the glass. The pizzas are also outstanding and perfectly cooked. I just love Sonoma each and every time I am lucky enough to visit!

    This is a great place to meet friends or have a business meeting. The staff is extremely friendly as well. If you don’t know much about wine they are happy to ask you questions to get you what you like. I would definitely go again.

    Service is always outstanding, excellent wine list at very reasonable prices and a fair variety of foods to go with the wine. To top it off, parking is right in front. I can’t ask for much more. This is our favorite place for wine.

    My husband and I had a wonderful experience on a Wednesday evening at Sonoma. The food was excellent, we had a cheese tray and salad and of course the white wine flight and the rose were the best. Would highly recommend for a relaxing evening away from Houston traffic.

    Sonoma Upper Kirby has been a favorite since it opened. The service is great. I love the patio for outdoor seating. Even in these crazy covid times, it's a safe place to go and enjoy time with a few friends.

    Went for happy hour with a friend, but it felt a bit cheap for a place that advertises itself to be more upscale. The server didn't tell us anything about the wines in our flight and the ratio of crackers to bruschetta or to spinach dip was not enough. Bit confusing.

    This was one of our few outings to a restaurant during the pandemic, but we really wanted to go out to dinner and were looking for someplace that was taking Covid seriously. The outdoor seating was cozy and we felt like all precautions were being taken. The outdoor seating was wonderful and tables were very distanced. The wait staff wore masks and was very friendly, but mindful of keeping distances when they could. The wine and charcuterie were delicious and the pizza was amazing! We had the Bordeaux pizza and it was one of the best pizzas we’ve had in Houston. We love thin crust pizza and the crust was perfectly crispy and tasty and all the toppings were high quality and perfectly proportioned. Would definitely recommend this place.

    We wanted to get out and support our local restaurants during these troubled times. Alexander made us feel very welcome. Please go out and support our Houston area restaurants as they try to keep their heads above water. We entered with our masks and left with our masks. Great experience at the restaurant and can’t wait to go back.

    Your server stated that she "could not process" my gift card and then refused to return it to me after I paid the bill with my AMEX so I could attempt to follow up and determine why you failed to honor it. Although I will not advise my sister who gave me the gift card that you stole it from me since it would hurt her feelings, I will never patronize your establishment again.
