Charcuterie and Cheese Plate
A beautiful combination of meats and cheeses served with rosemaryfocaccia. Added nibbles too. Our most popular item
A selection of Sonoma County and California cheeses.
Excellent food in a cozy wine garden experience. Service by all was impeccable capped off by Diego’s table side presence.
Nice brunch spot with solid wine list. The food menu was a bit off. Not a place that’s gluten free or wide ranging in vegetarian options. Heavily pork based. We’d. S to offer chicken, meatless or turkey meat options would have been nice.
The patio is quite nice; really appreciated being able to reserve an outdoor table given the pandemic. Would have been nice to have heaters out there, though. Our server was friendly once she appeared, which took longer than it should have. Our entrees arrived while our appetizers were barely touched, so timing should be improved.
This was my second time here &, as much as I love the location & the setting, the food just isn’t good enough to go back. It’s not terrible… it’s just “fine”. And I can get better than “fine” elsewhere.
Came to town to meet friends we haven’t seen in 30 years. Waitstaff extraordinarily patient with us while we talked to catch up and with our questions about the menu. The food was excellent start to finish and we sat outside due to Covid. The heaters were not on but they have them for cooler nights. We enjoyed ourselves so much!
Delicious and great service! Will be back to try more of the wines/ciders. The pear cider was wonderful and our food was too!
This was an absolute pleasure with fine service, outstanding wines and food beyond your dreams in a beautiful space. I cannot wait to return.
Fantastic time. Food, ambiance, and service were all too notch. My wife and I have found a great place in Old Towne Alexandria to return for dinner. Thanks everyone!
Service was slow and the waiter apparently had not washed: distinct body odor that was off-putting.
The food was just OK and expensive for what it was. I would have complained at the time but for being the host.
Way more pricey than it deserves.
Perfect small location for a nice dinner combined with wine tasting.
Great spot at Old Town Alexandria for a walk pre or post dining at Sonoma.
I have enjoyed it every time I have been.
I think some outdoor fans would have helped cool it off and blow away a LOT of fruit flys.
Wonderful back patio on a perfect early fall day.
Attentive service, great food and great wine. Had the tasting flight - good stuff! Def coming back.
Reunion of friends after 2 decades!
Good food and nice outdoor area.
Food and service OUTSTANDING!! The little garden in the back could be adorable, but it needs some work. And PLEASEEEEEEEEEEEEE use stem wine glasses or at least have some if your guest would prefer. I know they are harder to wash, but its the whole wine experience and you are a wine place.
But it was great!
Great brunch spot! The back patio is lovely! Perfect for small to medium size groups and great service too.
Wonderful outdoor patio garden tables in the back. Excellent menu and service. Loved our food and the wine sampler. Terrific place for our anniversary dinner.
The staff was amazing, the food was great, the service was slow due to short resources but overall very pleasant.
The ambiance was fantastic and I’ll definitely eat here again
Exceeded all expectations, server was very helpful, wine was GREAT
Food was delicious!!! Outside garden area was delightful !!
Wonderful wine selection and recommendations from our server.
Excellent experience twice recently. Appreciated Rick and Jen’s help with special occasion wine selection too. The menu and presentation were appealing and thoughtful. This place is a gem. Will return, recommend to others, and join the wine club.
We had a wonderful experience that was truly special for us. The food and ambiance was incredible. We will be going back the next time we are in town.
The only place in the east coast that makes me feel like I’m in the north bay. The food is fantastic, love the staff’s wine knowledge, recommendations and friendliness.
Highly recommended to come and have a glass of wine and some good food
Great food, great service and really nice patio.
Great wine as election, and you can order flights to try 4 at a time.
We had Saturday brunch here yesterday and it was WONDERFUL!! Highly highly recommend!
Food was amazing: everything/ not one thing was bad! We had 2 small plates/ 2 bottles of wine/ 4 entrees all for 215$ I thought it was fair for the level the food was
Great time and great place, not to mention great service and the most accommodating hostess ever!
Only complaint is the Charcuterie Board has such skimpy , less than bite sized pieces of cheese and meats. Seriously, you can't share it because one bite and it's gone........and the cheeses are delicious.
Charge more is you must, put on less selections if you must, but these mini sized portions aren't worth the trouble.
Also...... please offer stemmed wine glasses. Stemless wine glasses just don't do the selections justice
But I honestly love this restaurant
The food is always good here. And staff friendly! I love eating in the peaceful back patio area. your staff is sooo helpful n helping make ine decisions.
Amazing! Love the varied menu.
Lovely patio, great prosciutto Benedict and Bellini!
First floor was cute. We were seated upstairs. It seems like the room was an afterthought.
Lovely ambience on the patio. Service was friendly and professional. Food was excellent. I highly recommend the French Toast!
Fresh ingredients, creative. Decent wine related decor /art
Seats trendy but very uncomfortable . Outside could be cuter and brighter colors
Trying to be both a wine bar and restaurant seems to put a lot of strain on the service. There seemed to be a breakdown in communication between the hosts and servers as it took 20 minutes for our server to check in on us. We were seated just after a larger group in the same space on the upper level, but it appeared that the server didn't get the note that we were also assigned to him. However, after initially checking in, his service was great!
Wonderful lunch catching up with a friend, food is delicious and such a cute spot. Always enjoy dining and having a glass of wine here!
Terrific service and delicious food and wine!
Lovely back patio and great brunch menu. Ambiance was thrown off by the nightclub dance beats on the speakers at 10:30am and the ac next to our table was quite loud. I’d def go again though!
Excellent food and service. Downstairs was loud but upstairs was perfect.
Once we were seated, we waited a bit and we had to eventually call a waiter so we could order.
After that, everything was excellent.
In under two hours and before we finished out wine, the manager came up to our table and loudly informed us that they needed the table as soon as possible for other reservations.
