Macarthur Place is a hotel, spa and restaurant located in the heart of wine country in downtown Sonoma. The grounds of the Macarthur Place estate are beautiful, with picturesque vistas of the surrounding countryside virtually everywhere you look. The in-house spas are top of the line, and offer several services to help patrons relax and melt away any stress they might be carrying.
As for the restaurant, the Saddles Steakhouse, the peaceful ambiance of Macarthur Place carries over to the dining area, where tall white rafters and gentle lighting create the perfect atmosphere for a romantic evening. Steaks are of course the specialties of the house, with the stars of the show being the 8 oz filet mignon and 12 oz New York Strip. Unsurprisingly, the wine list is also exquisite, full of the best California wines. Saddles offers a full bar and 3 dining rooms (1 open air covered veranda), and 2 private dining rooms.

Service was excellent. Food quality and taste were good. The only negative was food temperature: foods that should have been hot were only lukewarm.

The restaurant had adequate parking, was accessible to persons with disabilities, was quiet and a good atmosphere for conversation, the service good and the food tasty.

The restaurant had been recommended to us by a really fine winery stating that it was the perfect steakhouse to celebrate our anniversary. What a disaster. The service was bad. The food was just plain awful. Cold mash potatoes. Creamed spinach was literally spinach with milk poured over it. Steaks were horrific - not quality cuts (based on a $40+ price point)...and the ambiance felt like an old country club setting. Suffice to say, the best part of the meal was the wine...that we brought. Thoroughly a disappointing evening.

Delicious an unique. Our server was fantastic an pleasant. It was a very romantic setting. We went for the Valentine's set menu as we do every year, it was delicious, unique, beautifully plated. It's fancy but not to snobby. My only complaint which is mild an doesn't reflect the place as a whole is the parking. It's always jam packed and fills up fast. To asswholes with massive trucks parked in the compact spaces on each side of me that I couldn't even get into my vehicle until one of them left.

This was a valentines special menu meal, we both had the steak option requesting med rare, one was cooked properly the other way overcooked. Service was very slow and unattentive. We have had way better food at many other places. Too bad since it is local. Will not be back soon, if ever.

Ordered a burger for lunch. Bun was dry and unremarkable. Meat lacked salt. Steak fries were inconsistently cooked. But beautiful room and garden.

Second time visiting and enjoyed as much as the first time. My filet was cooked a perfect Medium Rare and shrimp were tasty.

We have been before and will be back again. On this occasion, we made reservations in honor of my daughter's birthday. I even made note of it when I made the reservation.

We started with a cocktail in the bar, which I always try to do. They make mine wonderfully. Then we moved into the restaurant. They honored my daughter in a very low key way, which I am certain she appreciated. Dinner was fabulous and dessert was scrumptious.

Thank you for a wonderful evening! We will see you again soon.

Birthday for daughter. Intended to be big celebration. Restaurant was 3/4 full, but noisy bar crowd and terrible acoustics meant we had to practically shout to hear each other. The food was good, but the waitress was kind of combative or surely, so slow to take orders, then after food was served, she disappeared till about ten minutes after we had all finished. I had to wave to get her attention, which became annoying to us both. Then I ask her to bring us dessert menus and she says she’s bring the birthday girls dessert first - leaving the rest of us waiting to order and get our dessert - while my daughter is sitting there waiting, while her dessert melted into a puddle. I think the noise and waitress would prevent me from making reservations here again, but the food and restaurant were otherwise very nice.
