Bad service. Had to constantly ask to order and there was maybe 10 other people in the place.

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.

They made an effort to accommodate our large group with separate tickets. Our server was new and looked frazzled. And I had to pay for others food/drinks because he didn't bill correctly and some group members had already left. So, even though we enjoyed ourselves, there's a lot of room for improvement regarding service.

Nice selection of wines by glass or bottle. Fun variety of bruschetta, pizzas, sharables, and sandwiches. The fig/goat cheese bruschetta and meatballs were both dynamite.

We were headed to Music Box Theater so this is a great place to grab a bite and have some drinks. The wine flights are great - gives you a chance to try a few different wines. The bartender was friendly and knowledgeable about the wines. Not a huge food menu but generally can find something you like.

Sonoma was great! We had a birthday dinner here and we had an excellent waitress! She gave good recommendations based on our typical wine preferences. The food was great as well, the charcuterie board is a must, especially for big groups. The pizzas were delightful as well and more than big enough to split.
The wine was excellent with plenty of options. We especially liked the wine flights which were a great value. Overall would definitely come back!

It was our 2nd time there, food was very good, service was excellent all because of Charlotte. She was attentive, opened and poured our 3 bottles of wine which we brought with us under their corkage program. Last time Andie attended us and she was excellent also.

Has become our first cal for a date night. Conversation is possible. Sharing plates help getting "over fed". Leaves room for fine wine to complete the meal.

Have driven by Sonoma Wine Bar for many years. Caught my attention since I lived in Northern California for many years. My wife wanted a date night and something new. It was a great choice.

Make reservations, it was busy on a Friday night and you have both inside and outside seating choices.

Food was great- complete choice from a nibble to a full meal. Wine flights, total pour of 9 ounces was just right - nice wines and did not need to call UBER .

Already told my son-in-law and expect will be back this week!

There was a party in the same room so it did get quite loud and hard to talk but it leveled out a but so it was better then. I enjoyed my visit and will be returning and making another reservation. Thank you so much for the great service.
