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.

Excellent service and the food was delicious. However, the portion size of several entrees were on the smaller size.

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.

This was our first time at this location. We loved the old location. Sorry to say but we were disappointed. The food was good overall but the service and atmosphere was lacking. The server was attentive but lacked the professionalism of the service at the old location The atmosphere was loud and lacked the intimacy we enjoyed at this top notch restaurant

I have been aware of Sonoma for several years but never got to Princeton ...After they moved to Worcester it was time to try Sonoma. We were not disappointed, in fact very pleased. WE went there for Christmas dinner, great menu, service and quality and wonderful atmosphere. We will return.

Had dinner here on 12/22 and Christmas eve. Swordfish special on the 22nd was quite tasty. Really enjoyed the cioppino entree and grilled octopus appetizer on Christmas Eve-delicious broth for the cioppino and marinade for the octopus! Great service-thanks for a great dining experience.

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.

My wife and I are very sad that our once favorite restaurant has fallen so much. Everybody recalls the Princeton location but we understood when they moved the chef wanted to try something different. At first we were quite happy good menu ,excellent service from staff that had moved with them. Little by little the menu seemed to be getting smaller and less imaginative. Our last visit was let's just say not too good. Most limited menu ever with very mediocre service. Appetizer served before bread and tapenade , relatively empty restaurant on a Saturday. On a positive note as always the food was well prepared. Not sure where Sonoma is headed but i hope thay can make some changes.

My wife and I went to Sonoma for our anniversery. We had never been there before and found the service to be great. It was quiet and relaxing. The complimentary champagne and desert because of the anniversery was a nice touch.
The food was good with the exception of the oysters being way to salty. We probably will go back for another special occasion.

If you are new to Sonoma and never visited their location in Princeton - enjoy your evening. If you had experienced Sonoma in Princeton you are in for a big disappointment. No ambience, servers/staff are friendly but average overall at best. Food still excellent but it seems like size of servings and menu offerings have both diminished. Hope they can turn it around or return to original location. Not that “special occasion” experience anymore. 💔

For the most part it was very nice. Comfortable atmosphere, interesting menu. Two of us (we were a party of four) got the same entree and found that it was extremely salty. It was hard to believe that the dish was served that way. When our server asked how everything was we mentioned the overly-salty food and she immediately took it away and within a few minutes brought new plates to us; this time it was perfect. The server really saved the experience and we appreciated the way she handled the situation: no drama—she just did the right thing. In the end, the first salty dish was just a blip and we had an enjoyable meal.

I prefer the way Sonoma was at its previous location.
The menu selections were not as interesting as they were before. The two meals we had were kind of plain even though the written descriptions sounded great.
Only five deserts to choose from?
The room was too cold and sterile.

we love the quiet atmosphere and great service. The food is good or sometimes very good, but misses the mark on being truly outstanding as it used to be many years ago. The salmon was tasty but the presentation detracted. The octopus appetizer was good and also pricy yet there were only small bits of octopus and twice as many potatos in the small dish -- given the tasty bread served, I would prefer the octopus appetizer without the potatos as filler at all. would love to see this restaurant again serving top notch gourmet cuisine in worcester - much needed. will keep coming in appreciation for the good consistency and great ambiance.
