Excellent food and selection. Wine list is very good. Service very good. Plenty of room to socially distance from other diners. Servers wore masks and gloves; very clean.

Our server, Nicole, was exceptional. She and the hostess worked well together, and made a great team. Thank you.
The food was tasty and the only improvement opportunity that I can offer, is regarding the presentation of the mashed potato. I find it difficult to understand why an establishment of this calibre, would serve a scoop of mash, which just reminded me of school meals, or a very low class eating place.

Enjoyed the restaurant very much and this is only thanks to OpenTable. Right at opening time, We walked from our hotel room (in the Beechwood) and were told they couldn’t take us without a reservation and they were booked for the night. Open table gave me options all night to reserve a table so we made a reservation with them. Showed up and were seated right away.

Absolutely outstanding! The patio area was beautiful for outdoor dining, and the heaters added the right amount of warmth, while the tables were spaced safely far apart making us very comfortable. The menu was superb! Two of us had the Duck Special and it was the best duck they had ever had - fresh, tender, and so flavorful. The demi-glace was delicious! The Shrimp Carbonara was perfectly prepared with the shrimp cooked to perfection, and the dish was bursting with flavor, without being heavy. The Shrimp Cocktail was fresh, large, and perfectly cooked. We also enjoyed the hummus plate which was great, and the Caesar salad was fantastic as well. The waitress was delightful and was attentive and personable. Our friends had a wonderful time and we will be back again soon. Thank you for such an incredible dinner.

Outstanding food, service, and ambiance. We had a spectacular dinner set in a stunning atmosphere with a waterfall cascading in the background. Everyone loved their dinners. My friend and I had the Duck with Fig glaze and it was superb. It was cooked to perfection. My other friends had the Thai shrimp & scallops dish and the Salmon dish and said it was absolutely delicious. We can’t wait to go back.

I love the spacious outdoor seating. Three servers were quite nice and attentive but my bouillabaisse was really salty and the shrimp rubbery. I was disappointed there but the oysters were good.

Enjoyed patio dining to celebrate a birthday. Server was excellent. Appetizers were great. Entrees around the table were delicious. Pan seared scallops cooked perfect. I would dine again and recommend trying it if you haven’t yet.

Food was inconsistent. Salmon and swordfish cook absolutely perfectly! Dessert was great but salads and sides very ordinary. Extremely expensive. Server was young but kind, mostly knowledgeable and semi-focused. She tried but needed better training. We felt safe sitting outside.

Sitting outside within the garden was great... hard to believe we were in the middle of a busy area.
Food and service was perfect... and the waitress saw that the breeze was a little chilly for a couple guest... heaters turned on and it was comfortable for all.

We have been going to Sonoma for many years. The Princeton location was flawless every time. Unsurpassed attention to detail with every experience.
The Beechwood location has been very “hit or miss”. This last evening was average at best. Perhaps it has something to do with “the new normal”.
We will go back however, and try a few more times.

In the era of COVID it's hard to find a place to enjoy a meal that doesn't feel uncomfortable. Sitting outside at Sonoma is a great option, especially in the bad area with the astroturf. It's nice to feel like you're in a garden-like area and all the tables have umbrellas to keep cool. And most importantly the tables are genuinely distanced. Nearly all the places I see do not have a true six feet from the person to person at all the tables. The tables may be six feet apart but the people are not once sitting at them. Sonoma is somewhere you can feel comfortable.

I recommend the lunch menu which is available 'til 3:00. It's much more reasonable in price.

Food was good. Drinks were delicious! The service was absolutely abysmal. Our server forgot about us and we didn’t get to order drinks until 40 min after being seated. We walked by our server on the way to the bathroom. She was sitting at the bar, drinking a cocktail and swearing about a table who had an issue with their bill. She clearly hates her job and made us feel super uncomfortable. The hostess did her best to make up for the horrible server by checking in on us and apologizing for waits but it was a strange meal.

All went well, great place.
The only thing I would highlight that was not so good is, they totally ignored our special requests on reservations and said nothing about it. It was a bit of a let down .. but we did not make a big deal about it..Outside of that, it was good to try getting back to normalcy of dining out at this place given the pandemic!

Overpriced, mediocre food. Congenial wait staff sadly hampered by (apparently) lax restaurant management and minimal server training. The current situation at Sonoma is a far cry from the stellar dining experience when Chef Brady was at the helm. We will not return.

We were a little concerned at first going to be sitting outside because it was a hot day, but it was actually a beautiful evening the light breeze. The service was absolutely excellent very attentive the meal was timed perfectly and the food was excellent. We shared oysters on the half shell which was perfect the sauce that accompanied the oysters was just the right touch and the oysters were shocked perfectly. My wife had a salad which was beautiful and a shrimp cocktail as her dinner and I had the filet mignon which was cooked to perfection. We have gone to sonoma's many times initially when it was in Princeton and now that it's location Worcester and we have never been dissatisfied with either the service or the food.

We were looking for outdoor dining and from what we have seen this is by far the best in Worcester. The setting is very pleasant, well removed from the traffic, and attractive with a good combination of sun and shade. The food was excellent, with about the best filet mignon that I can recall. The salmon and swordfish were also quite good. The menu is short, but rather diverse. The bread was hot and flavorful. Service was attentive and good. Highly recommended.

I enjoyed my meal at Sonoma. As soon as you walk in you realize it is a very nice restaurant. It is rather pricey, but I think it was worth it.
