Sonoma Ratings and Reviews
Our server Robin was outstanding. She took her time to explain everything and made us feel like we were the only people she was waiting on. She was very accommodating to make our first time visit an exceptional experience, which it was!!! The food was served hot and the taste was outstanding.
As usual the food was wonderful with one small suggestion. 18 to 20 oz. Prime Rib is a bit over the top. 14 to 16 oz. is adequate. I was uncomfortably stuffed after this meal. Mary Ann was a tremendous server and the soft guitar music in the background completed the terrific ambiance. We are really going to miss the Sonoma when it moves to Worcester.
This was the first time I haven't been completely satisfied with a meal at Sonoma. My partner had the roasted lamb ribs which were wonderful (it's my usual choice there). I had a sirloin steak. The steak, which came medium rare--the way I had ordered it--was dry. It wasn't terrible, and I didn't complain about it, but I was disappointed. The salads were delicious--a fig salad and a pear salad. And desserts were wonderful--a key lime creme brulee and poached pears. Considering the price, though, I expect a bit better from Sonoma.
Once again, Sonoma doesn't disappoint. Excellent food and service are complemented by the quiet ambiance with a classical guitarist. Even on a busy Mother's Day, Sonoma delivers. High end food preparation and presentation make this restaurant a favorite for special occasions. We'll definitely be back.
Great food, great presentation...very artistic and appealing. Went here to celebrate an anniversary. It was cozy and had a very good live jazz guitar player. Service was very attentive and very familiar with the menu items. A little pricey, but really nice for a special occasion.
We have dined at Sonoma in the past. Our dinner on Friday was up to our expectations. This restaurant is one of the best in central Massachusetts. We ordered cocktails which were well prepared and interesting (and strong). We split a salad...more than large enough. Very creative and delicious. My wife enjoyed her scallops and shrimp wrapped in prosciutto with fresh pasta. I had the Waygu beef special. Excellent quality and flavor. We each had a dessert and were given a complimentary glass of Moscato. A bit expensive but so worth it.
Waitstaff friendly, helpful and engaging. Atmosphere was a little stiff. Food presentation value was higher than the actual taste which was good but not outstanding. It was nice but will probably go to another preferred restaurant next time.
Service was very good and the wine selection was very nice. May be asking too much from a restaurant the is in north central MA as we frequent eating establishments that are more in the greater Boston area, were there is more customer competition. We had two fish dishes and both were truly disappointing. Fish was over cooked and the accompanying vegetables had no distinct flavors telling me that they were boiled and nothing more. Apps were okay - tuna tartar good and the fennel fig salad was nice, however there was no signature taste; seemed like a cookbook recipe. Deserts were pretty much the same.
If you live in the area, and do not want to travel far, yes then it makes sense to eat at Sonoma, but do not expect WOW or greatness.
Fine dining the best around...wait staff is fantastic! My wife and I went there on Easter
David was our server. He's very knowledgeable about wines and he is very good at attending your to your needs, the term professional comes to mind. We have been there before always wonderful!
Sonoma is tucked away in Princeton, MA (not the one in California!) and so might be overlooked by those who may not venture far afield. It is well worth the trip, however, as the food and presentation are as fine as any as you'll find in the city. Located in a small block of stores anchored by the quaint local post office, Sonoma may not have the initial outward appearance of a gastronomic delight; but the term "diamond in the rough" was coined with this place in mind. The menu is select, but diverse. The wine list was not over the top, but well considered. Sonoma features local providers, from its protein and vegetables to its craft beer selection. It is fine dining, but without the city-locale overhead, I found the cost to be incredibly reasonable for such a wonderful meal.
If your travels take you to the middle of Massachusetts - perhaps to or from a college visit, ski season (it is close to Wachusett Mountain), leaf-peeping - or have cause to celebrate a special occasion, I highly recommend a visit to Sonoma. In Massachusetts.
We went on a Thursday evening. Very quiet, but the food was fantastic. We had the Korean ribs and pan fried salmon. Seasoning was perfect on both. Salmon was cooked through and a little dry. That's not the way we do it, but just personal preference. The veggie sides were great, especially the yams, which were moist, sweet and salty. Service was excellent.
We went here for an anniversary dinner and found both the food and the service phenomenal. We both have experience dining at higher end restaurants in both NYC and Boston and found Sonoma met or exceeded the experiences at city restaurants. We will absolutely be coming back here.
