The service was slow. The heater wasn’t working properly either so it was cold.

Restaurant is on the upper deck of a mall in Santa Monica. Very nice ambience, good food.

The food was below average and a server spilled ketchup on me, then did not take responsibility for it.

I have eaten at your restaurant several times and always am happy with the service and the great food and drinks. This time around my friends and I were not happy with the service. It felt like our waiter was ignoring us and rarely checked up on us. He didn’t offer anything else before we were done with happy hour which I thought was unfair as we didn’t take advantage of the happy hour since he never came back to our table. I will come back, however I think the service could have been better that day

Everything was great except the hostess was pretty rude about us having a reservation and was very difficult

The food, the wine, the ambiance and our server Miguel were wonderful, but the hostesses were extremely unfriendly. I had made a reservation for our first time there and was really looking forward to it. Having rude employees as your first impression when you walk in is a little unnerving. They need new jobs or better training.

Sooooo excited to come here! The ambiance is very nice and I had high expectations...the food was meh...the cheese fondue app was amazing...but my entree was not good...hate to say it...I had the halibut...which was poached in parchment paper...had very little to no taste...and the “veggies” on the side were onions....which yes by definition is a veggie...but come I feel like the value was low....

It was a dark and windy night. The inside dining room was closed (not a private party, just closed).

Outside seating was in a chilly wind tunnel.

I left without ordering. It would not have been pleasant.

I've been coming here for years and this last time I'll never go back. The food quality has diminished, the prices have gone up and it's just not as good as it used to be. Only go if you want to drink bottomless mimosas. The brunch menu is very limited and beyond expensive for what you get (or lack thereof). If you like to drink the mimosas are worth it, but you'll be hungry after.

Decent food and wine selection, but way overpriced.

Our waitress was good. It did take some time to get our glasses of wine we ordered and one of the glasses was the wrong wine but she corrected it quickly. She also seemed to have the whole area herself which seemed large for one person and her food runner had no idea what dish was going to what table. Overall I think she was great for what she was given.
The thing that disappointed both my bf and myself was the time it took to get our food. We ordered fairly quickly and it took almost 30 minutes to get our cheese plate out. Our main dishes came out maybe 10 mins later which definitely was not enough time for us to finish it. Our waitress did offer to hold it in the back but we didn’t want it sitting under a heat lamp so we decided to keep our entrees and eat everything at the same time. Against my better judgement we ordered dessert thinking that it would be quick (I work in pastry and have years of experience working the dinner service). This again took at least 20 minutes. We could understand if they were very busy or short staff but it didn’t seem that way.
If it wasn’t for the timing we would have loved dinning here. We have came to dine here many times before moving to Florida 3 years ago and were excited to dine here now that we are back. The food tasted delicious so we were happy with how everything tasted and looked. The timing issue was just too much that it overshadowed everything. Our dinner shouldn’t have been over 2 hours because we were waiting on food.

I recently attended Sonoma Wine Garden for a birthday brunch. I called 2+ hours before my reservation to increase the headcount from 8 to 10 to which they responded they don’t allow same day changes. It was a bit of an inconvenience, especially considering this was a preplanned special celebration.

Once we showed up, our server was wonderful & the food was delicious! A bit pricey though.

Really nice atmosphere, great wine list and friendly service. Not good bang for the buck when it comes to the food.

The ambiance is great but the food was terrible. We were very disappointed and surprised it was as bad as it was. Our service was also terrible!! It's definitely a great spot to drink, but I would never go back to eat.

We enjoyed our dinner on the rooftop city terrace at Sonoma Wine Garden. Our server, Jen J was very warm and welcoming and introduced us the the sommelier, Sean, who provided some thoughtful suggestions and wine pairings, as well as local wineries to visit. The halibut en papillote was delicately fragrant and the truffle pizza with mascarpone and kale was decadent. We finished the night with a butterscotch pudding with a lovely Louis Latour French white, a wonderful pairing to end our evening.

This is a beautiful restaurant with a great open air space. The staff is super friendly and the food is great. Brunch menu is small but delicious.
