The food was a disappointment. The shellfish and the squid in the pasta dish were cooked until they were rubbery. Had to send back the broccolini because it was so tough I couldn't cut through it with a knife. I expected much better but felt it was only so-so.

We chose this restaurant to meet up with friends because it was halfway between Santa Rosa and Napa where we were each staying. We sat outside in the patio which was very nice.
Everything we ordered, steamed mussels, caprese salad, pear salad, a risotto and a pasta dish with shrimp were excellent. The staff was attentive without being hovering. We thought it was a good value for Sonoma.

Sonoma Grille is an outstanding restaurant. The menu is terrific and includes all kinds of seafood along with several other choices. The bar is great, the wine choices are many and the service is great!!! The outdoor patio is beautiful and more conducive to a conversation rather than inside but overall a great place to eat!!!!

As it was we chose this restaurant to celebrate a birthday. It took awhile to get our appetizer and almost 45 minutes to get our main course. Not sure why the hiccup but only after we asked the waitress to check on our meals did things get going. The manager stopped by our table and within a short time we had our main course. The food was fabulous - cooked to perfection.

We were told ahead of time the bar is great, the food is ok. Our food was good but not over the top, so as usual, listen to the locals. Very good clams however. Nice wine list and overall nice ambiance in the outside seating.

We sat out back on the patio. The ambience was very pleasant. The service was professional. We each had a pasta dish. I had saffron pappardelle with shrimp, my wife had fettuccini with rock shrimp in a "red" cream sauce. The food look good but the flavors were rather bland. The pasta itself was well made, the shrimp on both dishes were good, but the seasonings didn't "pop" or make you go "ahhh!" They have a mini micro brewery and I tried their "homemade" IPA. It was pretty good! With so many good restaurants in the Napa/Sonoma area ya' gotta give yer best every time, or.... just saying. Nice atmosphere, good service, average food, pricey.

Last minute choice after an afternoon of wine tasting. We ate outside in the back. The area is very cute with music playing—Avery nice atmosphere. Our server was friendly and appropriately attentive. The food was good. We would return if we were in the area again.

Mediocre at best. Quite disappointed as we had set reservations for outdoor dining nearly 2 months ago for my husbands birthday and upon arrival we were told outdoor seating was unavailable. We put on q smile and agreed to he sat indoors. Entire service was unfriendly and lack of engagement by all staff. Food was just ok, bland. Skip and head to EDK.

Very underwhelming dining experience! We started with the calamari and it didn't taste so fresh and was rubbery. The pappardelle pasta was okay, as was the caprese salad. My filet Mignon was a bit over-cooked from the requested medium and the quality of the cut left something to be desired. Accompanying garlic mashed potatoes were good. I don't mind restaurants charging for bread, as long as it is phenomenal bread. Theirs wasn't. Service was less than welcoming.

Restaurant was not busy yet service was extremely slow. After our meal concluded it took nearly 30 minutes for the waiter to bring the bill, which he set down multiple times after receiving a credit card for payment while doing other things along the way. It was a significant waste of time. Additionally, while the food looked nice it was not delicious. I ordered the chicken Caesar salad and the chicken was extremely dry, and their dressing desperately needed some pepper and other flavor to make it worthwhile.

With a picky kid, we were a bit worried whether everyone would find something they could eat here, but it was not a problem! Menu seemed limited, but everything we had was delicious and beautifully presented. Sat out on patio and it was very quiet but we were there mid-afternoon. Service was excellent and prompt. Would visit again!

I've eaten here many times before the pandemic and this is the first time after. The food quality was good but not quite as good as it was before. The service was very good and as I was seated outdoors it was fairly quiet.

The food was disappointing. Our caprese salad was excellent because of the local produce and cheese. Everything else was disappointing. Not worth the prices.

Reservation was for outdoor, social distanced dining. Could only be seated inside, no distancing, incredibly loud. Door mediocre. Had to pay $5 for small order of bread which was tasteless. Will not dine there again. On the other hand, waitstaff was terrific. Go there if your priority is good service, not food.

After visiting two wineries it was time for lunch. This place has a nice little patio outside. I got the club with fries and the bacon was overflowing which is just how I like it. Great place for a nice relaxed lunch.
