Service was amazing - Micheal the manager made sure he stopped by our table. Our server (I am drawing a blank on her name ) was both attentive and personable. Although my medallions were not medium rare, they were tender (no I didn’t mention it. I didn’t think it was a big deal). My wife ordered a slider and garlic fries - she enjoyed both.
We plan on going back !

We sat near the bar and had Alli as our waitress and she was phenomenal! Great service and great food to match. We are visiting and Alli gave us some great places to visit while in town. Will definitely eat here again :)

Excellent spot. Love the atmosphere, service and food all around. Maybe just SLIGHTLY overpriced (about $100 for 2 people), but overall would recommend and happy to go back.

The food was excellent.
We had a range of dietary considerations - gluten-free/lactose free - and all were pleased with their meals.
Wine selection was terrific.

Food was good, appetizer was forgot so it came out cold. They made it right and comped the dish so that was good. The clam chowder was a bit watery but the flavor was good. Overall an enjoyable night.

We really enjoyed everything once we were seated. We had a reservation for 8:00 but weren’t seated until 8:30. That was a little frustrating.

This place was so confusing - we made a reservation for Sonoma & they gave us a menu for a completely different restaurant (Christopher’s) it was way more than we were thinking we’d spend on dinner because the menu isn’t even close to the Sonoma menus listed online. It wasn’t Sonoma - it was a completely different restaurant inside of Sonoma. Made no sense.

The service and drinks were impeccable. The food was fabulous as well. My friends and children were all happy with their meals. I gave it 4 starts because I think I chose the wrong entree and it wasn’t my favorite, but the quality was high and I will be going back and ordering another option.

Nice downtown location, good spacing between tables. We expected more of a wine bar experience than that of a bar/casual dining per se, nevertheless the food was outstanding and the service too. Restaurant shares kitchen with Christopher’s ( at the Peery Hotel, Sonoma Grill and Wine B feels more like the sports bar next to the fancier restaurant. Wish more of this info was included in the open table description as we were expecting more of an intimate dining experience. Other than that excellent.

GREAT selection of wines, and the food menu is very diverse. We were given a menu for Christophers as well so there was not a shortage of food items.

Get the Warm Spinach-Bacon dip!

Nobody waited on us for over 20 minutes so we asked the host to sit in the bar. The food was worse than any fast food or chain restaurant you can imagine. The lobster and shrimp sat under the hot lamp for so long it was as if they turned to to jerky. The breading on the shrimp was charred and dry...only on the side up that was being torched by the food lamp. The only good thing was our bartender Johnny who had a smile on her face and was very cordial and nice. If we never eat there again it will be too soon.

We sat at our table for 23 minutes before I got up to find a server, she came over 10 minutes later. The appetizers and soup were delicious but the entree's were much to be desired. Steak was rare when it was supposed to be med/rare (barely had browning on the outside) and chicken was overcooked. They did give a discount because of the service and quality food but it still was not worth the $80.00 we paid.

Two visits to Sonoma Grill. One on a Sunday evening, with almost no one there, and another on Valentines day, when the place was packed. A gluten free menu was important for my date. The food was excellent on both visits. Service was very good considering the demands of a packed house. Other than great food, I appreciate a restaurant with a nice ambiance and acoustics, that allow a casual conversation. The menu goes from value to pricey, and the same can be said for the wine list. A great choice for a restaurant near the Capital Theatre.

Nice dining scene and good environment. Went on V day so they had piano guy singing and playing. Waitress was subpar, unattentive to drinks. Had preset menu for evening so thought would be good and hot each course but was not. Ordered steak med rare and it came out purple barely cooked, both mine and wife. Potatoes were cold. Dessert was best part of meal. Not good choice for holiday evening, maybe normal days are better but I don’t think I’ll go back.

Ordered a burger medium, it came out rare. Very rare. Ordered a side salad, the lettuce was limp and the dressing was a very sugary vinaigrette. The french fries were delicious, and the stuffed mushrooms were great. We did wait over 30 minutes between ordering our food and it coming out (and the restaurant was about 20% full). Our server was super cool as was the host, the only good thing along with the french fries.

Our service was slow. We ordered one soup and a ceviche for starters and two glasses of wine. Only the soup and one glass of wine came at first. The ceviche came with the other dishes and the second wine took forever. Also the portions are large and we did not need that much food. Caution by the waitstaff
Could have helped.
Food was tasty the whole flow of things was off.

Wait staff tried to tell us our order was correct when it was not, then didn’t apologize when they realized their own error. Burger was basically raw, sent it back and server was rude. The other food was mediocre and extremely overpriced. Won’t be back.

Tried the calamari Fritti and crispy artichoke hearts appetizers. Both were very good. Calamari was nice and tender not rubbery. Just had salads for our main course but they were very good, ingredients were very fresh. Flavors combined well. Had flourless chocolate cake for dessert. Delicious. Staff were friendly and helpful. Definitely will go back. Have recommended several times already. Nice place to go and enjoy a glass of wine or a meal.
