We received a gift certificate to Sonoma. The food was delicious! I had the bone-in filet that melted in your mouth. My husband had lamb dish that was amazing. Our waitress was very accommodating and provided great service. I have a treenut allergy and the waitress and chef went above and beyond.

We dined at Sonoma while staying at the Beechwood Hotel recently, and were pleasantly surprised. The quality of the food was very good and the atmosphere at the Bar was much better than I expect. We were staying overnight due to a concert at the DCU in Worcester. My wife and I are from NH and hadn't been to Worcester in 10+ years, the Sonoma really made of a low stress evening and a very nice stay.

We enjoyed the bone-in fillet as well as the duck presentations. We selected a very, VERY nice cab wine (Groth 2013) ... not inexpensive, but well worth the price. Our wait-person was friendly, always available but not intrusive. It turns out that there was a concert in Worcester that evening, so the restaurant was nearly full to capacity during the 6:00 pm dining time. We have been enjoying Sonoma since the Princeton strip mall days, and look forward to returning again soon.

While it is a beautiful place, the overall experience was subpar.
The service was incredibly slow. We had alerted staff that we were going to a concert, so we needed to keep moving. We arrived at 5:40 and were finally able to leave at 7:30. On out way out, we were told there had been a large party that made things problematic. Really? this is a large hotel. They knew how many reservations there were. The concert, highly publicized, in town was at a 15,000 person venue. No excuse.
And the food was so salty, it was really a disappointment for an expensive piece of steak. A quality cut of meat should stand on its own. So, sad to say, in spite of a really lovely setting, this is a definite "thumbs down."

We had dinner before a concert at the DCU center (only 10 minutes away). The food here was excellent! The service and atmosphere, too. I didn't realize it was in a hotel and typically that can be a deal breaker for me, but not in this case. Our server was attentive and terrific, too. Had salad with salmon my husband had the hake. And the signature cocktails were tasty, too. We will be back and will recommend it to friends.

Delightful from start to finish. We loved the fried calamari and charcuterie apps. All the entree’s were delicious, too. My only disappointment was the dessert, a chocolate mousse cake. It just didn’t shine like everything else. It turned out to be a very special night gathering with friends... I highly recommend and am looking forward to returning!

Varied menu choices. My husband and I shared the maki maki special and the spelt mushroom risotto, bon of which were very very good, but we found them a bit too salty. Portions were more than adequate. One of our friends had the duck breast which she thoroughly enjoyed and the 4th member of our group had the crab/squash soup, which was very rich and filling. He had ordered the fried cauliflower which had cilantro in it, which was not listed as one of the ingredients. He had already eaten the amuse-bouche which had been described also without cilantro being mentioned, so there were 2 strikes agains full disclosure.
The restaurant was quite busy, but the noise level was quiet, a treat. Our server was responsive to our questions and concerns.

First visit to Sonoma since it moved from Princeton. New restaurant in Worcester is more spacious. Food has not changed, great quality with creative flair! Service is outstanding as always. Not the same country feel as before more contemporary but still exceptional dining. Still my favorite restaurant!

My wife and I went to Sonoma for Valentine's day dinner and while the food was good, the price of the pre fixe menu was quite high. Based upon the prices of their regular menu, the pre fixe price was about $30 per person higher or at least $60 more in total for the same food items. Given these prices, I don't think we'll be back any time soon.

Quiet atmosphere with wrapped booths that create a cozy space for small parties. Server offered us a pleasing alternative Riesling that was not on the wine list. We ordered the scallops and swordfish which were cooked to perfection and portioned appropriately. Overall nice night out, though I'm partial to my company. Would recommend.

Loved our experience, just wished there were a few more options on the menu. I would hesitate to come back for dinner as selection was slim. I will come and try brunch and definitely come back for happy hour. Would love to see some Jazz nights here with a special menu for that night.
Beautiful ambiance, extremely clean and staff was wonderful.

I never thought I would write this about Sonoma. My wife and I were extremely disappointed with the pace of our meal and the presentation of the food. Our server was very good, so no complaints there! We shared the pork belly appetizer. I was taken aback by seeing one slab of pork belly placed in the center of the plate. The sauce and garnish were tasty, but an uncut slab of pork belly does not represent fine dining. In fact, the last piece I had was 95% fat. We were not thrilled. No sooner had the plate been taken away, here come the entrees. I had the duck breast while my wife had lamb chops. Both had a good taste, but the presentation was average at best. My duck sat on a bed of rice while the lamb chops were just placed on the plate with no real thought. The lamb came with fried artichokes which were overdone and dry. It was a good thing we had a cocktail before we ordered or we would have been in and out in less than one hour...Fine dining, I don't think so.

Liked the old location in Princeton, Ma The atmosphere. was much nicer more interment and the food was as good or better. Good if you are on business account but expensive for what you get. When it was in Princeton it was worth paying for and it keeped us coming back.

Good Luck in your new location.

Food was really good, the service for breakfast was not so stellar. Brought my pot of tea but no mug to drink it out of, the waitress noticed this and said she would bring one but after 5-7 minutes, no mug and no waitress to be found. I had to walk around looking for a mug because I couldn't find any wait staff. Food was excellent, omelet stellar, home fries yummy. Other than a little blip with the waitress seeming a little off it was great. I would return.
