I went there for my birthday and the manager Tim went out of his way to make sure we had a great time! I truly recommend this place for celebrations.
I love this place. They really do well with bottomless mimosas. And the food is very tasty. And the view can be amazing.
Unfortunately, during your Sunday brunch, the waitress and the entire wait staff were, lets say inattentive. Even with a reservation, arriving early and being seated promptly, the waitress did not address us or the table behind us for over 15minutes. Gaining the waitress attention to refill the already overpriced and ill mixed mimosa's took a verbal attention seeker and a waive- more than two- each time. It is unfortunate that the wait staff was disorganized and inattentive to paying customers whom would like to return-yet not anymore.
It is a delightful place near Santa Monica to spend quality time with good friends. Great vibe with a nice wine made everybody happy! Food was nice too and went well with the wine. :)
Food is mediocre yet expensive, and slow to come out. Drinks were also mediocre. The wait staff and management are super friendly which made up for what was lacking. The hostesses are quite rude. The outdoor rooftop ambiance however is really fun, great for a boozy brunch. Overall I give the place 3/5 stars.
Their happy hour is outstanding, highly recommend.
I've been to this restaurant a couple of times now and always enjoy the food and drinks. They have a new chef that hails from Napoli Italy and as a result their pizza's are amazing since Napoli was the birthplace of pizza. I also highly recommend the Moscow Mule, which is made with all fresh ingredients and served in an actual copper cup. The restaurant patio has great views of the Santa Monica ocean and the ambiance is amazing. I haven't been for happy hour but i hear they have $1 oysters which you can't beat.
Had shells in every oyster we ate - otherwise the service was great
The DJ was killing it, really good music, and the food/drinks were amazing! Love this spot :)
The hostess wasn’t very friendly.
Great drinks, even better atmosphere, and the best service from Andrew!
Great ambiance and good service.
Thoroughly enjoyed myself for on birth day! The food is good and winel list is better! Lol! The service from JEN was outstanding!!! Very beautiful decor outside and rooftop views of Santa Monica ocean.
Everything was good, Not great. Would go again if i was in the area.
Excellent, friendly service from our waiter Antonio and all the staff. Great wine selection. Nice, relaxed setting on the patio. Our party had the beet salad with steak, mushroom pizza, hamburger, grilled cheese, and all were perfect.
AL was our service and he was amazing!! The service was Great! Best for Brunch!!
There was an energetic party going on and the music level was way too high. We could hardly hear ourselves talk and the conversations were difficult.
Not good! Horrible service, ordered two drinks and an appetizer to start. Meatball appetizer came out first, Mo plates on the table, drinks never came out, no water, server nowhere to be found. We asked for the check and left, didn’t even stay for dinner.
Staff- not the waiters, were very pretentious. Realize it’s Santa Monica location, but it’s 10 am for brunch and you just opened. Waiter Jeff was an excellent waiter- he saved the experience.
Well where to start..... we arrived right on time and we were immediately sat at our table which had a great view. Then it all goes down from there. After waiting 20 minutes and no service staff coming to the table I left and went to track down the host. He assured me that someone would help us. I returned to the table and waited another 5 minutes before finally someone coming to take our orders.
I had to ask him if there was a special fish. He didn't seemed to care if we wanted to eat at all.
We ordered and food arrived. The meatballs were probably the worse I've ever had. Zero flavor and hard. The fish was halibut cooked in paper and that's what it tasted like. Paper. No Flavor.
He never came back for another drink order. The drinks were pretty good though.
We definitely will never go back.
Service was really poor. We waited a long time for the food and it was average. Our neighboring table had the same issue with the service.
One of our favorite spots in Santa Monica - great energy, great food and a great wine selection. The best part was the attentive, thoughtful and friendly service from every staff member we interacted with. Tim, the GM, is doing a great job and looked after us really well.
This is always a go to for a fun brunch or a bday get together
I love a good day party vibe. But the music was so incredibly loud- that i could not hear the person sitting next to me. I had to scream across the table.. it was not enjoyable at all.
Nice varied menu with a large wine list. The food, service and location were all great!
Sat and the bar and must say, the bar staff was phenomenal. Very friendly and attentive. Really added to the experience. Food came out in reasonable time and was really good. We will be back!
This used to be our favorite brunch spot. The bottomless mimosa brunch used to be well worth it but not anymore because they seem to have switched to a cheap version of the champagne. Lower the price if you’re going to lower the quality of champagne.
Great time and good food and wine. Only issue was that the waitress was trying to rush us even though it wasn’t a busy night.
Good service, friendly staff and nice ambiance fair range of food on the menu, and good wine
Fun, energetic atmosphere for brunch. Great wait staff; very attentive.
Awesome service, food, and vibe. Loved it
Great food, ambience & service- we enjoyed the outside dining
Disappointed with this meal. Nothing stood out. My filet was ordered medium rare and came well done. Had to send it back and it arrived after everyone had finished. I wouldn’t have cared if it was a little bit over cooked, but this wasn’t even close. The price was very high for the quality of food. The waiter, however, was very nice.
Everything was amazing. Will be back in the future.
Ordered wine and 3 items, waitress knew nothing about the food. No item was made right. The pizza (potato) was bland an doughy, the shishito peppers were covered in a ton of salt even though we asked for no salt. The bread and olives did not come with the accompaniments described and we had to ask for them twice. This place ruined our night as it took an hour to get stuff and get out of there... just to find somewhere else to go eat!
We didn't like the fish dish we ordered and they had no problem to exchange for something else. Our waitress Tina was great. She's very friendly, warm, classy and pretty.
We loved the ambiance but the food is moderate to good depends what you're ordering. However the service was very poor. We waited almost an hour for our food to be served. They brought the food for the half of the table and the other half 10- 15 minutes later and by the time the steak arrived, although it was tasty it was cold. While we were waiting for the food we asked the server to have more breads and she said that if we want toasted ones it'll take 5 min longer, because we were hungry we chose the regular bread. However it didn't make a difference in timing cause it took her 15 min to bring the regular untoasted bread. Although it has a great ambiance our experience was very disappointing.
The patio dining area was wonderful. Our server recommended a great wine for the table and all the food was delicious. We especially liked the poke and salmon starter which in itself would've made a meal. Great evening out!
I always love coming to Sunday Brunch at Sonoma Wine Garden. The staff is great - very nice and helpful. I feel like a VIP! Will definitely be back.
My boyfriend and I came here and we really enjoyed it! The truffle fries were amazing, as was the squid ink pasta and the salmon. If you go for dinner I’d recommend bringing sunglasses as I was seated in direct sunlight for awhile. The service and view were great. I would definitely recommend. We will be back again!
