    I appreciate Sonoma and all the memories this place has given me! My fried chicken sandwich with truffle fries was great (I would just say to add more fries to the entree. I finished my fries rather quickly. The aoili tasted more like butter yesterday and not as garlic-y like it usually does.) other than that, I had a great time! Great atmosphere

    If the cycling classes weren’t right next to the roof seating it would’ve been a better experience. The brunch menu is very limited. The drinks were phenomenal. I’m assuming that due to the pandemic the cycling classes are so close.

    Disappointed, they basically force each person to order an entree if you want a glass of wine which is something I’ve never been told. We thought it was because they’re going out of business and they just had nothing to lose by asking their guests to abide by that.

    Love this place so many memories here. Made a pilgrimage because they’re closing down. Service overal great. Food was cold but tasty. Disappointed that their mimosas were marketed as different juice flavors (orange, peach) but I think were actually variations of cranberry juice watered down or mixed juice. I get that it’s not fresh it’s likely concentrate but label should be accurate as some people have allergies. We had to ask three times to confirm whether we got peach or some type of jungle juice and finally someone clarified it wasnt peach. They first gave us orange. Then a mixed thing. Then a watered down mixed thing. Lol. Would’ve been cool if they just said they’re mixed juice mimosas. All in all sad to see them close down. Awesome place.

    Not impressed, we went there the day before Valentine's Day for dinner. Specifically picked it because it was Santa Monica near the office with outdoor seating (we don't live in the area), didn't realize that it's located inside a mall - first star gone. We were seated to an outdoor table that had all partitions around it and you basically only had the bar and servers to look at, not possible to even tell you were outside - second star gone. Once again, the Saturday before Valentine's...the draft beer machine wasn't working, nor was the frose machine (think rose wine icee). Ordered a fancy drink for $17 dollars that promised strawberries, lime, tequila and triple sec, tasked like cheap tequila with flavored water - third star gone. The food, bland and tasteless. The filet mignon on the level of what you might get at a Denny's but you get the privilege of paying $47.00 here. No bueno, don't waste your time.

    Our Valentines special dinner was absolutely fabulous from beginning to end. From the appetizer to our delicious salmon entree to the passion fruit mousse, it was all delicious with a beautiful presentation. Our waiter was phenomenal. He even let me taste 3 sweet wines to make my decision which won to order. The table we were sitting at provided us with a lovely sunset view. A great memory of Valentines dinner 2021

    Sadly these unruly guests chose to stay 45 minutes past their reservation time, causing two other parties to have to wait for the table, and when asked if they needed any assistance and to abide by COVID-19 health department guidelines, they threatened to assault staff. They then proceeded to go to a neighboring restaurant and have security called on them for being out of control. They will not be allowed to dine with us again.
