This was our first time dining at the new location. We've been to the Princeton restaurant multiple times. This was a birthday celebration. The food is always delicious. A bit pricey, but worth it to us.

The drinks were perfect. Tito's vodka and hand-pressed lime juice. Delish!

The only odd thing was that, upon arrival, we were told that our table wasn't ready so we could wait at the entrance or get a drink at the bar. 10 minutes later and we were seated. But, there were multiple tables empty in the restaurant. Well, C'est la vie!

The tuna appetizer left a bit to be desired. The Kung Pao Cauliflower was *phenomenal*! Our entrees, beef tournedos and duck were fantastic. Dessert - chocolate cake, scrumptious.

We'll definitely be back!

This was our first dinner in the new location. Having been to Ceres in the past, I like that they kept the ambiance and look.

The menu is limited but decent. The food was well prepared and presented nicely. We order the duck and the salmon. The perfectly cooked duck was a bit overwhelmed with maple syrup - it could have used less maple. The salmon was well prepared. The rice that came with it was bland and uninspired.

On a not too busy Saturday night, I’d say our only issue was the lack of attentive service. At the old Sonoma the servers used to bring new water regularly. This time around, our server came once to check when we got our meal and then disappeared until the end of the meal. While business-like, I can’t say the server was warm and inviting, and with it not being too busy, you’d expect much better service, especially given that Sonoma is attempting to provide a fine dining option in Worcester.

We may stop by again in warmer weather once the outdoor area opens, but I do expect better from a restaurant such as this.

We've dined at Sonoma for many years when it was in Princeton, MA. A mile from our house and you received a superlative dining experience. But Chef Bill Brady moved everything to the former Ceres at the Beechwood Hotel in Worcester. So we had some concerns. We shouldn't have worried as Chef Brady offers his usual incredible selections in a beautiful environment with impeccable service. We celebrated New Year's as well as we've ever done and will definitely be back for next New Year's celebration, in addition to special occasions in 2018. Well done!

We always loved Sonoma at its prior location and had some concerns about the move to a Worcester hotel. The charm has declined slightly but the food and service still excels. The restaurant was packed, more so than we had ever seen for the restaurant that was here previously.
We were seated quickly on a Friday night and had a nice table for two. Kelly B. was our server and she was very pleasant, friendly, helpful and attentive to every step of our meal. We enjoyed the lobster ravioli app and then had the Seafood stew and Lamb Rack special. Both were excellent and served without any delay. The Smores Cake for dessert was delicious.
Our impression is that the food is every bit as good as it was at the previous Princeton location. The menu has a nice variety and the wait staff was extraordinary. Now that the Worcester/Beechwood location is closer to us, we'll be sure to frequent this wonderful restaurant more often

The food was good but definitely overpriced. I had the Sesame Encrusted Tuna which was great. My husband had the Beef Tournedos. The bacon was not crisp and the beef was too rare. Our guests felt their entrees were good but not exceptional. The service was incredibly slow. It must have been 40 minutes between the appetizer and the main course. There were not that many people in the restaurant at the time so there was no good excuse for the slow service in the kitchen. The dining room manager did stop by a couple of times. I felt sorry for the waitress as it was clearly not her fault. I would recommend this for an anniversary or special occasion due to the wine list and the menu.

I will have to say that we were reluctant to dine at the new location based on the reviews on line.... but I feel that these reviews are so subjective. That said, I am happy we ignored said comments.

We made reservations prior to a Hanover event. The timing was perfect. Not too rushed but just enough time between courses.

Our server was Kelly. She was phenomenal. Great demeanor, knowledgeable, and so welcoming. We would absolutely ask for her on our next visit..... and anyone reading this should ask for her as well!!

We enjoyed the awesome cauliflower appetizer. I had the duck, and my wife had the salmon.... all prepared perfectly and sides were spot on and hot!!!

I feel the service and food were excellent. The interior has not changed, but it didn't need to. I would only recommend a coat check. Other than that, kudos to the entire team and continued success in Worcester.

Sincerely, Brian & Judy

BTW, I just sent a coleauge there to purchase a $250 gift card for a Christmas gift.

My wife and I dined at Sonoma in Princeton numerous times over the course of twenty+ years and were never disappointed. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for the Worcester location. The restaurant is bright, but on the noisy side. Service was excellent, but the kitchen was a bit slow on preparing our meals. The ceasar salad was fine, but the cheese cup holding the salad was rubbery. My wife got the pork chop special and I got the pork medallions with crab entrees. The pork for both dishes was overcooked, as were the carrots. The highlights of the evening were my wedge and blue cheese salad and the desert we shared. Perhaps our experience was an anomaly and we may give the restaurant another shot...but not too soon.

Had been to Princeton when they were located there and wanted to see how it was in new location. Great food and service for sure. While not as quaint or as romantic a setting, definetly easier to get to from where we live and much more room for more diners. Only a minor negative where the special, Delmonico steak, was out of at 6pm. But new special added to replace was great, a veal chop.

We've been to Sonoma's previous location in Princeton several times and enjoyed every visit. We had a lovely dinner at Sonoma's new location on Sunday, December 5. The new location ambiance is very cozy and private, perfect for an adults only night out.
All of our choices were beautifully plated and of course delicious! The service as always, was attentive. Our server was very knowledgeable about the menu and the dishes ingredients.
We will be back!

Extremely disappointing. Ate at the original Sonoma and it was fantastic, this trip to the Worcester Beechwood location was terrible. I ordered pork loin with crab, what I got was dried out, very tough pork with something on top that looked like shredded coconut which I believe was supposed to be the crab. (couldn't tell by taste or texture) Potatoes were gluey and the entire meal was barely luke warm. Other members of our party faired just as poorly. Waitress was nice and competent but it didn't make up for the awful food. Also, it was Nov 29 and there wasn't one holiday decoration, poinsettia or lights or wreaths or candles. Very boring décor. Not first class at all. Will not return, ever.

Living in Worcester and having made the trip to Princeton a number of times over the years to eat at Sonoma, my husband and I were eagerly looking forward to having dinner so much closer to home, now that Sonoma is located at the Beechwood Hotel in Worcester. While the meal was, overall, good, it was disappointing that almost all the dishes we ordered were only good. Especially disappointing were 2 items we had had a number of times at the old Sonoma and had thought were excellent: the French onion soup gratinee and the duck breast. The duckling we both had was on the tough side, and the sauce it was in was not very tasty. The vegetables with it--spinach, carrots, and sweet potato--were very good. The only other very good dish was the chocolate flourless cake we had for dessert. The onion soup had lots of onions and cheese, but the flavoring on the bread was strange and almost overwhelmed the taste of the onions and cheese. The dumplings stuffed with chopped chicken and foie gras were especially disappoint-ing--the stuffing was bland, and it didn't taste like any foie gras was in it.
Our server was very pleasant and the atmosphere was very attractive--just like it was in the previous restaurants in the Beechwood. The only reasonably priced item we had was a glass of very good Zinfandel (for $9); every thing else was quite pricey.
We will give Sonoma one more try some time in the future, but won't rush to go back. We can get excellent meals at several other restaurants in Worcester for a lot less than the $100 plus that our meal at Sonoma cost.

The ambiance is considerably enhanced by new table linens and fresh flowers creating a more elegant dining experience. The Kung pow cauliflower was delightful although a bit too much oil. The fish and shrimp dishes were exceptional. Presentation was excellent and the wait staff was attentive, thoughtful, and professional.

Sonoma has been our favorite "special occasion" restaurant for several years. We loved the Princeton venue and though we miss what was special about it, Sonoma continues to be the excellent restaurant we remember so fondly. The food always was and continues to be the best in the area. The service, which integrates many of the old Sonoma staff with the former Ceres staff, remains excellent. Nicole, our server, did everything she could to make my wife's birthday special. Certainly, the atmosphere is different, but for those of us who miss the Princeton location, the new place is beautiful and just as quiet. In short, we came to sneer and stayed to pray. We'll be back.

Was looking forward to trying Sanomas new location. Was always impressed with my Princeton dining experience. Hostess brought us to the table and gave us menus. Luckily I was catching up with an old friend, since after 25 minutes it dawned on me that the waitress still hadn’t come over to the table. I asked another server who was walking by to see if our table had a waiter/waitress. The hostess then came over and took our drink order. After another ten minutes the waitress finally showed up. She never offered an apology, and appeared to be having a bad nite.
The meal was just as uneventful as the service. The pork was cold and dry, and the crab tasteless. The frozen mashed potatoes at Trader Joe’s were far superior to the ones I was served. I was afraid to ask my guest how his meal was. He did chuckle when the waitress asked if we wanted to bring the rest of his meal home—only thing on the plate were the chicken bones.
Luckily I was able to catch up with an old friend, because everything else was disappointing, especially for the price. Training is definitely lacking here, from the wait staff to the kitchen. Sadly, I’ve had better dining experiences at a Cracker Barrel.

As much as I was apprehensive about liking the new location I quickly warmed up to the new surroundings. Princeton had everything going for it including an unsurpassed atmosphere. I was disappointed that some of my favorite selections were missing on the current menu. One in particular was the escargots. We will definitely return now that it is practically in our backyard. I hope the current owners will allow Bill Brady to make all the food decisions. After all, he and his staff is what made Sonoma one of the best restaurant in the country.

Still lots of kinks to work out in the new location. Food was good but a series of service mishaps marred our evening. Not what you’d expect from a place that’s been in business for 20 years at another location. Long wait for our waitress. Longer wait for our main course. No bread service until after our mains were delivered despite our waitress offering it. Uninspired wine list.

Sonoma-Princeton was my favorite restaurant. I had been going there for years - particularly for special occasions (birthdays, anniversaries). The menu was small but unique - always changing with the seasons. The food was phenomenal. The wait staff was extremely attentive and made you feel very special. The ambiance was intimate. It was always a wonderful and special evening - worth the price.

The magic is gone. The menu at Sonoma-Beechwood now contains many mainstream items - cup of chowder, French onion soup, etc. It's no longer unique. It can't be. The restaurant is now open all day long. The food is good - not fantastic as it once was. Probably because it's all about volume now. Most of the wait staff came from Sonoma-Princeton. They are still good and try to be attentive - they are just dealing with a lot more people so they're not able to give the individualized attention they once did. As for ambiance, it's not horrible but it's not intimate. It's just a typical restaurant atmosphere. The only thing that hasn't changed are the prices. It's very expensive. It always was (and well worth it) but now it's just high end hotel food.

Definitely the end of an era. I feel no need to go back.

VERY disappointed. They were top notch before the move to the new location. Eating there now just seems like a TGI Fridays. Having it as part of the hotel really brings down the feel. I liked the old location SO much better. The service in the old location was impeccable! Last night was mediocre at best. The food also was mediocre. It certainly doesn't feel as "special" in their new spot. I more than likely wont be back. I was hooked on EVERYTHING at the old spot...food...service...dessert...ambiance...it all worked. The new spot is a dog....bummer!

We tried Sonoma's new location at the Beachwood Hotel and was very happy with our evening. Our meals were well prepared and the service was spot-on.
We started with a Caesar salad - a nice balance of dressing in a crisp Asiago shell. We also tried the Asian Chicken and Foie Gras Dim Sum dumplings - served in a nice mushroom broth, but the dumplings offered more of a chicken taste...we really couldn't taste the foie gras. Still, it was tasty.
We both had the Rack of Lamb - perfectly prepared to our medium-rare request. The shallot demi-glace was delicious, and the accompanied potatoes (mashed yukon gold) and green beans with carrots were nice accompaniments. The lamb was a choice piece without any grissle and well trimmed. However, our recollection was that the crust on the rack was different at Sonoma's former location, which we preferred. Still I wouldn't hesitate in ordering or recommending this dish.
We finished our meal with two choices from the desert cart: carrot cake ( rich and moist,) and creme brulee (could use more vanilla) and coffee.
The wine selection was surprisingly medium-range priced. We chose a 2012 Groth Cabernet Savignon.
The room has booth and table seating and a entertaining without being intrusive classical guitarist played during the evening. Overall the room ambiance was nice and not loud.
Our server was knowledgeable, attentive and paced our meal perfectly.
It was nice to see Sonoma at their new home, and we're happy to see a new upscale choice in Worcester.

Last night we went to use our phantom gourmet gift cards that our children had given us to celebrate my birthday at Sonoma' s restaurant in Worcester. When we presented our gift cards we were told we couldn't use them because they weren't set up yet to accept them. Our dinner came to $141.00. That should have been posted at the hostess station not after you had your meal. Very upset longtime patron of Sonomas. They are posted on Phantom Gourmet list of restaurants participating. So upset and disappointed.

Having been a big fan of Sonoma's Princeton location, their new location leaves me cold. It lacks the warmth and elegance of Princeton, and at times was a bit noisy thanks to the bar and the kitchen. The scenery is unattractive - a hotel on one side and a parking lot and Rt 9 on the other. We even heard the life flight helicopter arrive at UMass Medical.
The good news is, the food was fabulous along with the service. Debbie was attentive but not intrusive. She knew her menu and was able to give us wonderful suggestions. Our meals were not only delicious but we're elegantly presented. It rated an A+. Hopefully , over time, the ambiance will once again match the quality of the food and service, making it a destination for a special occasion!

We were there to celebrate my wife's birthday. It was first time in the new location. We had a wonderful evening. Sonoma honored our request for seating next a window, the ambiance was perfect the live Spanish guitar music in background was just load enough w/o being overpowering.
Each course was superb. The entire evening was perfect. We highly recommend Sonoma.
