Good but nowhere near great. Edgar, our server, did an outstanding job. What a delight he was! We were greeted warmly and seated promptly. The restaurant was mostly empty on this Thursday at 1:30PM, which we liked. It was the food that earned the "It was okay" rating though not worthy of a return visit with so many other options nearby. The chicken tortilla soup had A TON of chicken in it but the parts were strange. Some of it looked like rotisserie chicken but it had a pink, brown cast to - maybe it was smoked? The color was off-putting but the flavor was fine though it needed to be cut. There were huge hunks and chunks that made it impossible to eat with a spoon. Hubby's hamburger was good and included 6 huge strips of bacon - again way more than called for or that added appropriate flavor. My chicken salad was okay. This time the chicken breast was diced and there was again a portion of chicken and romaine that dwarfed the very small servings of tomatoes, corn, and cheese that also came with the salad. We had the berry cobbler in red wine sauce (which we thought was weird) but tasted okay. The cobbler part was more like a giant crumbled sugar cookie. I am never one to balk at good portion sizes but here they just seemed awkward. Nothing tasted bad but nothing tasted as described on the menu either. The service was terrific and the food needs an overhaul. Thankfully we had a Groupon and the restaurant comp'd us dessert for celebrating a birthday. It was okay.

My steak was undercooked, twice. Our server was excellent at trying to get it done right, but it was a 6oz filet and can only go back to the grill so many times. We got a discount as a result. Charcuterie was good. Wine selection for a “wine bar” is meh. But...after all...it’s a Marriott.

We went for lunch, we were there later than the normal crowd. Food was good, a lot of food. Goat cheese was great, so was the salad. Had no room for anything else, so I had to bring it home.

Service was a little slow on Christmas and yet most tables were empty. Our table was on the main path to the kitchen and my chair was bumped twice. I asked to be moved to another table and the wait staff told me no as the tables were reserved. Also, she would not honor a coupon I pulled from their webpage that same day. Although the food was great, not sure if we will be back next holiday season.

Service was slow and not very good, even though there were only a few tables in the restaurant on a Friday night. The food was mediocre - I ordered the chicken palliard and the risotto and asparagus tasted like margarine. I was not impressed and will not be back again.

My wife and I only get over to Sonoma’z once every few months since we live clear across town. But, it’s worth the drive. We have never sat on the patio partly because the weather has not been warm enough when we have gone, but mainly because we would miss the outstanding service and conversation we get from Christian at the bar. We usually start our evening at the bar for a couple of drinks and Christian treats us like family. We moved to the dining room the first couple of times we ate dinner at Sonoma’z, but no more when we can either stay at the bar or move to one of the tables near the bar and continue to be served by, you guessed it, Christian. In addition to the good selection of beer and wine, we have tried a number of things from the dinner menu, including the Seared Togarashi Ahi, Smoked Chicken Tortilla Soup, and entrees like the Petite Filet or Lamb Chops. In our experience, everything has been prepared precisely to order and was always very tasty (far better than any hotel restaurant we have eaten at before). Wrap this together with the top notch service and we really wish we could make it to Sonoma’s more often.

We always have a good meal here. The chicken tortilla soup was outstanding - full of big chunks of chicken. The chop salad was also very good with generous portions of chicken there as well. I didn't care for the flatbread - too crispy, almost like a matzoh pizza, but I'm getting disillusioned with ordering flatbread anywhere lately. Sometimes the crust is good but the toppings skimpy. The soup and chop salad was enough of a meal anyway - very generous portions.

This was my second visit to Sonoma'z and it was for lunch on both occasions. While the patio is next to the parking lot, the wall and the flowers make it very attractive and it is hard to find a nice outdoor place for lunch in the area. The food is good and the service was great both times - attentive but not intrusive. Our server, Laura, was very good.

The food and drinks were absolutely fabulous! The place was extremely quiet - hardly anybody was there on the Thursday night that we went. The food and drinks were fabulous and the server was excellent too. A bit pricey - but great for a special occasion. Being a restaurant in a hotel, I would have never known about this if wasn't for the Groupon that we bought and used - which made the price a whole lot more reasonable.

Hit & Miss on food - uninspired Ambiance:
We had the spicy chicken wings as an appetizer and they were outstanding - among the best we've had and a nice change from buffalo style - sweet, tangy with a good kick. The Caesar Salad was very good as well. The cedar planked salmon was delicious and the risotto on the side should be served as an entrée risotto - both were excellent. I had the New York Strip with blue cheese fries. While the steak was cooked as ordered, it turned out to have 3-4 bites that were nothing but very tough grizzle and the whole steak was tough to cut. The "caramelized onions" seemed more steamed than caramelized and the blue cheese fries were very average soggy fast-food style fries with some shreds of blue cheese sprinkled over them. There were a few pieces of mushroom with the steak but not a ragout. Over all - I would recommend the wings, salad and salmon but avoid the NY Strip. The service was attentive and friendly. There was a weird thing with the ambiance - the 2-top tables are way too big - too deep end-to-end. We had a very hard time talking across the seemingly 42" or wider table and had a tough time reaching across the table to share the wings and S&P. I never thought I would want a smaller table but in this case the large size impeded any sense of a date. The ambiance is generic hotel - neither objectionable nor enticing. The location is great for pre-theater before a Lone-Tree Arts Center concert!

Fantastic restaurant for being inside a Marriott Hotel. The food was very tasty and the wine selection is wonderful. Be prepared to pay hotel pricing for the entrees. Get the guacamole during Happy Hour (4-6pm). It is a 'bucket' of homemade guac for a very good price.

The food was very good and the service was great. It was quiet and easy to have a conversation especially since they had a guitarist singing cover songs. The only knock was that it was a bit overpriced for the quantity of food we received.

The shrimp appetizer was delicious and we both enjoyed that. My tenderloin was good, but the wine sauce that accompanied it was too sweet. My husband's ribeye steak had the most fat of any ribeye we've ever ordered. The sides were good. We split a cheesecake for dessert and it was very good with whipped cream and fresh berries as well as a compote which we asked to be on the side. Although our server was friendly and helpful, service was extremely slow. We noticed that she also worked in the bar area and being in two areas--dining room and bar--might account for the problem.

I hadn't realized that this was a hotel restaurant when I made the reservations (it's inside the Marriott) or else I might've skipped it.

Unlike many wine bars, this one did not offer wine flights. But I did find a yummy Sauvignon Blanc for $15 a glass. The food that we ordered was just OK. I ordered the butternut squash ravioli and found it bland and greasy. My daughter ordered the margarita flatbread and it was pretty tasty. Service was fine. Ambience is typical Marriott.

Don't know that I'll be back.

Great service on a quiet Friday night. This restaurant sits in a hotel. Good atmosphere and good food. The dishes were each a touch spicier than I would have expected, but overall, very good. It was a nice place to get away from the larger crowds around other restaurants in the Park Meadows area.

My wife and I went for our anniversary.Our server was excellent. Seated us next to fireplace so that was nice. The manager had the chef prepare a special dessert with a congratulations message free of charge. Topped the night off perfectly. Very nice experience. Nice wine list as well. We recommend trying Somoma'z out.

This is a Marriott hotel restaurant. It is actually better than many Marriott hotel restaurants. We initially went there since it's a 1,000 point dine, and really enjoyed our meal. We had beet salad, grilled shrimp, and the cedar plank salmon. There is a decent wine selection and the restaurant has a nice ambiance and is mostly quiet (unless there is a hotel event). We've dined there three times and this was our fourth. The only complaint we have is the service. There is one server in particular, whom we've had on all our dining occasions, who is just simply unpleasant and each time we've dined the service has gotten progressively and gradually worse. On our last visit, the service was quite poor (complete lack of attentiveness) and when we noted to our server that the salmon was uncharacteristically "fishy," her response was "oh well.... you have had it before." That was it! No offer to amend the final bill, to re-serve, or even an expression of regret. After a few visits where we were happy with the food but not thrilled with the service, we kept returning because we enjoyed our meals. This time was the final straw and we do not plan to return.
