Food was underwhelming for the price. The restaurant was nearly empty on a Thursday night.

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.

One meat meal too fatty, one fish meal too bland, vegetables a bit overcooked, coffee served luke warm. Not acceptable for price levels. Someone did warn me that this restaurant was hit or miss depending on who was in the kitchen...

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.
