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.
The charcuterie board and pizza were amazing!! Our server also provided the perfect wine pairing for our meal.
Great brunch menu! Very clean, I felt safe with how the tables were spaced apart. Beautiful atmosphere ... great food and service. Make a reservation for sure! Busy!
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.
Great vibe, great music, great food! AAAAND BOTTOMLESS MIMOSAS! Woo !
Great brunch !
It was perfect. The pizza was amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
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!
Our server Tony was what made the experience over the top. Food was great as well!
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.
Nice rooftop setting, fresh and delicious brunch. Peach mimosas were outstanding.
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 went there for my birthday brunch. It was great. Music was great. Atmosphere was great. Server was great!
I understand the entire covid thing but you ruined my experience by continuing to let us now the entire time we where going to have to leave at the 2 hr mark. It was brought up at least 8 times during the dining experience
For the amount of money spent I was expecting a higher quality of food and also presentation. Never again sorry
Nice ambiance, good food. Service could have been faster.
Very good place to go have some drinks and some decent food ! Will go back, because of the drinks more than the food !
Was really beautiful scenery and great drinks and food.
Great place for brunch. The view was lovely. The location was great. After eating brunch my friend and I went shopping down Santa Monica Blvd.
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!
Nice place, beautiful view. Good for couples
My sister and i had an amazing time! We will be back!
Great place will be going back soon .
Our waiter was Ignacio and he was the best we had! Thank you to him we had a great time
A very nice casual spot for a glass or two of wine and some dinner.
Service was amazing (shoutout to Alex who took great care of us). Food is also amazing! We love their cheese plates, mussels, truffle fries, and the salmon dish. Always good wine and drinks. Love their outside seating!
Food sounds great on menus but is disappointing at the table.
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.
Hosts, Servers, Bartenders & The Bussers were amazing. Good was great so shoutout to the cooks! Felt really safe as well. Great job to everyone working at Sonoma. He back soon.
Outdoor seating is great! The drinks are delicious the service is great 👍🏼 very attentive and friendly staff. Must try the truffle fries and the Brussel sprouts! went here with my husband and our tween girls for al fresco rooftop dining
My favorite brunch spot!
This has become our weekly happy hour spot. Beautiful patio, delicious food, great happy hour prices....thank you Sonoma Wine Garden!
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.
Salmon was excellent as were the truffle fries and shishito peppers!
