Was expecting a high-end establishment but instead the ambiance was marriage between Denny’s and Chili’s. For instance, there was a little girl dancing and screaming on top of her chair during service. Then another group celebrating a birthday and being ridiculously loud.

We really enjoyed our evening. Our server was fantastic. Food was EXCELLENT- except the pizza. They really need to look into the flavour of the crust- it was really NOT GOOD. And I am saying that politely.
otherwise everything was perfect. I will definitely go there again and recommend it to friends.

Be aware that this location is in a mall. The ambiance comes off strong in pictures but subpar in person. Most of the patio was closed off would have been nice if they opened the whole thing to make it more roomy

The food and drinks were so good we didnt even take a picture lol. The waitress was nice, and attentive. Honest about the options, didnt rush us or pesture us. She was awesome, i cannot remember her name but she had bloody halloween nails. So management, if you see this, tell her we said thank you!

Our table had 3 glasses of moscato, 1 bourbon drink, 2 tortilla soups, brussel sprouts, 2 squid pasta, 1 kale salad & 1 margherita pizza. It was all SO GOOD!

We will be back!

The food tasted good (we had onion soup, mushroom pizza, chicken, gnocchi, desserts). The restaurant that positions itself as the fine dining can not serve the onion soup the way it was - very disappointing( By the time it got to the table it was already on the spoon, on the base-plate, on the actual table and overall lost "presentable"picture. The server didn't bother to wipe the table even after removing the bowls(. Have no issue getting the bill during the meal when in a rush (the guest asks for it). That was not the case- check came at the same time with serving a dessert. Little pity, cause there are so much effort put to keep the restaurants on the flow during these hard times for everyone but not everyone appreciate the opportunity of having this job and keeping the standards up.

My date ordered the mushroom pizza. Worst pizza ever, not joking. The french onions soup was definitely good but seemed too heavy/creamy. I had the steak which was tough and not flavorful.

Loved this place. Went for brunch on a weekend with my bestie and it was an unexpected good time. Played a lot of old school hip hop which made for a fun and lively atmosphere. Waiters were great, crowd was diverse, and bottomless mimosas were delicious. Highly recommend as a spot to meet up with friends.

I was not very happy at Sonoma Wine Garden. We felt very rushed, got our dessert in the middle of our main course bc "kitchen closed early". Not recommended...

Got sick after eating the kale salad. Did not even have a drink, after 5 bites of the salad I had to leave from how sick it made me.

Went for happy hour on the patio off the bar, beautiful comfy booth. Had the bubbly and oysters special to start, and the Burrata & tomato appetizer. Very yummy, also the Brussels sprouts were my favorite very flavorful! Our server was super friendly and helpful with Making choices, her Rose suggestion was perfect. Will definitely be back again!

Food and service was great as always. The wine was tasty, and although there is a 2 hour maximum, the server gave us updates at one hour and 1.5 so as not to rush.

Your happy hour is confusing we had to be re sat in the garden to have happy hour prices. Then when we placed an order before 6 they said they couldn’t accommodate the chicken sandwich as a happy hour special. We ordered many things off the menu and items that weren’t on happy hour. It was overall a very confusing experience.

Food is not the reason you come here. $50 steak tasted like cardboard, and other food was mediocre at best. Come for drinks (I assume) and ambiance, as the location is beautiful and outdoor seating lovely.

I've been to Sonoma Wine Garden before, it's definitely a scenic restaurant with a nice atmosphere and fun to be at with friends with drinks. The one downside is you need to be prepared to spend a lot.
