Great Dinner and Great Service. We ate outside so the noise level was very low.
Excellent food and service !!
So glad our waiter was willing to modify my meal. Starter and entrees were excellent.
San Francisco girl trip
Not the best Italian cuisine one would expect
I had the salmon which was prepared well but I was a bit underwhelmed by the tapenade topping. Waiter was very attentive, gave ambience a mediocre star because we were in the parklet. Risotto was fab
Delicious food, great service, courteous staff, and great ambiance.
My wife and I stopped in based on recommendations and we really enjoyed our meal, plus friends we made out celebrating a birthday. We shared the beet salad and seafood pasta which were light fresh and delicious. The creme brûlée and affagoto tasted great the Grahams 10yr tawny. The atmosphere was excellent too.
We ate lunch and shared the large cheese board, Had the tomato soup special which was really good and a beet salad, very fresh. It was inside but next to an open window so nice air! Recommend this place for sure!
We had a delicious dinner, everything from salads to wine to mains were great! It was fun to sit outside and take in all the good vibes. The service was excellent as well!!
My wife ordered a glass of Cabernet….. it tasted bad. She told our waiter that she wasn’t going to drink it and asked for something else. He totally ignored her request without even an apology or trying to make it right .
Lovely atmosphere located on the Sonoma plaza. Menu selection and food were good.
found this gem via Open Table and loved being in Sonoma and on the plaza. excellent salad and yummy martini - I had the Sancerre with my meal and my guest got a lovely chardonnay - ordered the fresh sole special and I had the prawns with risotto. Delish! we will be back.
Had the lamb chops special,
Fantastic! Service was exceptional!
Plaza Bistro location is perfect for Sonoma- on the Square, near parking, street ambiance but not objectionable. Menu is broad with solid choices for everyone in our group. The steak was excellent. Thick, juicy, served hot. Mashed potatoes and green beans both done perfectly. Caesar salad was somewhat overpriced but the main course was reasonable for this town.
We loved our dinner, and the service by our waiter, Dominic, was fantastic. Food delicious and nice wine and cock tail selection. We'll be back! We were celebrating a birthday and received a nice visit to the table from the owner with some delicious terra misu. Wonderful experience, and I love the outdoor street dining.
Th fritto misto came our cool and some sarachi would have added some flavor to the bland mayo. Salmon sandwich as ok.
Great experience. Food was outstanding- loved the carpaccio! Service was great.
Good food, great service, somewhat bar like for ambiance.
Food and service was fantastic!!!
I was very disappointed to find out that they accepted our reservation at the same time they were planning on closing. We arrived 10 min early to a 7pm reservation and there was never any indication that they would be closing early. We did not receive an email, phone call nor did it indicate special holiday hours on their website. We were rushed through dinner and felt pressure the whole time. The meal did not justify the hassle. We will not be back.
I liked the restaurant’s location but the menu did not excite me. Overall the experience was okay but not memorable.
Nice service, nice location. Food is only average for the price compared to other spots in the square.
Food was bland and overpriced for what you get.
This is. A great little spot on the plaza for a nice casual lunch. We enjoyed our salads and Sandwhiches
Our experience was quite wonderful. Our server, Daniel, was very attentive and the food was amazing. Would definitely recommend! We ended the dinner with dessert and a Mexican coffee which was amazing.
Great service. Small plate offerings are fun to share. Decent gluten free opt options.
I’m always happy at this local restaurant. The beet salad is excellent. Reliable food and service.
This was lunch. We shared a charcuterie plate and each had the rolled egg plant. It was fantastic!
Poor service and poor food, pasta over cooked. Overpriced.
I will not recommend it at all.
Always a great meal and great service. Would definitely recommend.
Outdoor dining on a Monday afternoon
Good menu selection and good drinks
Nice job with Covid issues
Recommend and would return
Great food, did a good job with covid and outside dining
Outside dining-covid Safe- Attentive Staff and delicious breakfast!
Delicious food, excellent service and outside dining - what more could you want! The crab cake, pasta, and mussels were perfectly prepared. Service was impeccable!
Great restaurant. E we had carpaccio & crab cake as starter. Dinner was lamb lollipops & pork piccata. Courses were 5 star, Service THE BEST!
This was an amazing place. The food was hands down spectacular. I had the Pork Picatta and it was soooo good. I wish I could go there weekly to get my new favorite dish! You must visit!!
A wonderful place to have a wonderful dinner. Food is always great and so is the service.
Martin, Daniel, and the entire staff, do everything possible to create a warm, receptive environment through friendly service. They are always there when needed, and give you space to enjoy your evening. The food is excellent, and the presentation perfect. A top performer on the Sonoma Plaza.
