    What happened to Sonoma's? Years ago this was a fabulous place. The food was awful! And it was understaffed. I will not be returning unfortunately.

    Waited 45 min. to order. Finally had to flag down the one waitress who was trying to manage all the tables on Mother’s Day. We had reservations but there was no hostess and no one checking reservations. We were told to just find a seat. Food was OK. This used to be one of the best restaurants in the city. Beautiful place and atmosphere. Very sad to see it how it is now.

    The Belgian Waffle looked like a sad Eggo waffle. The pancakes were thin and dry around the edges. The home fries were tasty but very few on the plates. The bacon was good. The server didn’t ask how everything was until the check was brought. The Saturday morning breakfast at 8:30 was super quiet as there was only one other table in the entire restaurant.

    Decent food--small portions. Very unsatisfactory service. Marguarita arrived salted as opposed to clear perference for sugared rim; steak was delivered without steak knife (had to wait 10 minutes and ask twice for it to eventually appear!); dinner wine was brought to table 20 minutes after dinner was served; wine was not offered for tasting, just poured and the server departed. Wine had gone sour and was undrinkable. Will not return to this over-priced restaurant.

    The risotto truffle was delicious, but the quinoa that came with the halibut had no taste or salt. The creme brulee was good. Overall a good dinner to celebrate our anniversary. Our server was professional and kind.

    This experience was one of the worst I’ve ever had the restaurant was awful I felt like I was in a coffin. The food was terrible, our wait person was great. And this is the first time I have ever been told at 8 o’clock that the kitchen was about to close so we had to hurry and we could not even have dessert I will never ever go back to this place again nor will I ever recommend it it was terrible

    I took three clients for a breakfast meeting, all business and community leaders and was so pleased with the attentive and impeccable service we received from Denise. Everyone loved their breakfast. One person enjoyed the Eggs Benedict, two people enjoyed omelets, and my poached eggs were perfect. The fruit was fresh and delicious and the coffee was flavorful and kept coming. Thank you for your hospitality.

    This place ended up being a real disappointment. It looks like a high-end restaurant and your expectation is that the food will match the decor. Unfortunately, it does not. Not one of the meals we ordered among our group was considered good. The food, every dish we ordered, was either bland or over-sauced. I ordered a chicken piccata that arrived with no capers and had absolutely not a hint of lemon in the minimal flavor the dish had, no resemblance to the classical dish. Pasta was overcooked as well. The lobster ravioli was two-tone with squid ink, a beautiful presentation had it not come doused in an over-abundance of sauce. Not to mention, it was to be served in an ala vodka cream sauce and came to the table blood red. The truffle risotto was equally bland and disappointing. Skip this place, too many good restaurants nearby to waste your time or money here.

    Everything was way too slow. Server either couldn’t be bothered or was overwhelmed. Forgot my husband’s beer, forgot my kid’s to-go food. Entrees took over 1.5 hours to prepare. Drinks took forever. My filet came out lukewarm and pre-sliced? Never seen that before. Over all, meal was over $200 and held us captive for over 2 hours. I understand the labor shortage will warrant longer wait times, but have the wait be at the door, not once you’re seated. If you’re going to choose to be open with a higher than average price point, make sure your service can deliver on the promise implied with the hefty price. Or at least have your server trained to acknowledge, apologize, & accommodate for the astronomical kitchen times. Not to remain hidden unless apathetically delivering the occasional forgotten drink.

    Three for lunch. See it immediately when we arrived. Very few people in the restaurant on a Sunday at 1 p.m.. mostly boobs. Tables all taken. Hostess accommodated our seating request for distancing from others. Water immediately served. Request for drinks immediate. Order taken in a timely way. One person had a salad with salmon. The other chicken piccata over pasta and the third steak.frites. no Desserts ordered. Food was good and well prepared. Outstanding service. Very quiet which we had hope for because we had a reunion with someone after not seeing them for forty years. Everything was very clean

    Disappointing dinner. We were so looking forward to a special dinner here to celebrate our anniversary. We were seated at a nice table and we were pleased with the overall ambience and service. The calamari was very good as were the cocktails. however, we both ordered a rib eye steak dinner and this should have been the highlight but it was not. The flavor was very good but our dinners took much longer than we expected, which would have been fine except that they were served lukewarm. We ate about half of our dinner and decided to stay for coffee and dessert anyway. The tiramisu was tasted like it had been frozen and recently thawed. Overall we had hoped for an excellent experience, but this left us regretting that we had such high expectations that were just not met.

    No one greeted us at the hostess station. One of the wait staff finally seated us. It took some time before the waitress assigned to us took our drink order. It was a long time before 2 iced teas arrived. After taking our lunch order, again, a long delay before the soup arrived. The soup was supposed to be Chicken Lemon Rice. There was no rice and the soup was salty. It took a long time for our meals to arrive. There were 2 sandwiches ordered and neither of them came with the bread described on the menu. Both came with white bread instead and neither had the dressing described on the menu. The third entree was as described, and the fries were hot, but the meat was tepid. I would not return for lunch. It was a disappointing and expensive (over $80 for two sandwiches, 1 soup, 2 iced teas and steak frites). They have done much better in the past. I know all the restaurants are struggling, but it may be better to close for lunch rather than disappoint patrons. Lastly, the city of Worcester has an indoor mask mandate, and one of the restaurant staff members did not wear a mask the entire time we were there.

    This Saturday evening was our first date night in quite a while, and we wanted to try something new. The restaurant was relatively quiet - 1 or two tables indoors and 3 outside…slow night, so quiet dining. We sat outside - nice weather and a nice table on the patio. We both ordered braised short ribs for an entree, one with carrots and one with sautéed garlic spinach, both with mashed sweet potato. The entree was “good”. The short ribs were tender and well-prepared. What was lacking for the price point was anything that made the meal distinctive - a sauce, seasoning…anything to lend it any kind of a signature taste beyond being some nicely-prepared meat and potatoes. The entree also didn’t have any of the typical while-you-wait trimmings like bread or a side salad, so without an appetizer, we were left to sip our drinks while the meal got put together. (Fortunately, the company and conversation were top-notch at our little table.). The lounge music playing over the speakers practically had us looking around for people wearing satin paisley and bellbottoms…kind of comical. Having a rare date just-the-two-of-us was memorable, but I can’t say that Sonoma added much to it.

    Unfortunately we have experienced Sonoma in Princeton and this experience was just horrible. Clams Oreganoto were just dried breadcrumbs and no taste, scallops on lobster and corn risotto---scallops were good but risotto was paste and no corn. Very disappointing

    The food was excellent, as it usually is. The atmosphere is upscale. Service was uneven. Our waiter was friendly enough, but we were ignored for long stretches. The wait time between courses was longer than usual. This was surprising because there were never more than four or five tables occupied at a time, and there were at least three wait staff working the evening. Perhaps a function of inexperienced staff? In any case, service ranked well below what we have experienced here in the past.

    Sonoma is hands down the best restaurant in Worcester. We love it there! Always a phenomenal dining experience. The food was impeccable and the service was flawless. I had the grilled octopus appetizer and Scallops with Risotto for an entree and they were both delicious. We sat outside on the patio and it’s just absolutely breathtaking. The food, drinks, service, and ambiance at Sonoma is spectacular. Can’t wait to go back!

    Made a reservation for our family of four to celebrate an anniversary, which we let them know. When we showed up we were greeted with “service would be slow because there are only two people in the kitchen”. We remembered Sonoma from the Princeton days so we decided to stay. After drinks that were not great, and ordering appetizers that were mediocre at best and wildly expensive, we decided to pay our check and leave. It was a terrible experience and a complete waste of time. This Sonoma is not the old Sonoma and is at best a not very good hotel restaurant now.

    We have been to Sonoma fans since it’s origins in Princeton. We’ve been back a couple times since covid and we’re a little less than pleased with things overall. What used to be exceptional service is now just ok to non-existent (my husband got up and retrieved a steak knife from the serving station because we could not find anyone- even at the hostess station - to get one for me while my filet was getting cold. There is a limited wine menu… we selected a bottle, only to be told about 15 minutes later that they were out… I am guessing they were searching for it during that time. Not once did someone come over to see if our meals were ok. I understand there is a staffing shortage, but at the time we were there, I do not believe there were more than 5-6 parties dining. The server was taking care of parties indoors and outdoors… maybe that was part of the problem. The filet wa great… the rest of the experience, not so much. Our check was brought without even asking if we wanted dessert. When you pay the kind of money Sonoma is charging, there are certain expectations for level of service.

    We tried three of the dishes on the very small menu and we're delighted with all of them. We dined outside on a lovely evening and enjoyed the meal and excellent service. The restaurant is close to a hospital, so the frequency of sirens is above average, but that was our only complaint.
