We first ate at Pullman Kitchen when they opened, and went many times. For some reason, we had not been there (too many other choices in Sonoma County)! We decided to go for Valentine's Dinner. It was terrific. I had the duck confit which was just about the best I have ever had anywhere! My wife had a vegetarian option which she loved. Wonderful salad with pumpkin seeds, and other goodies! Couldn't decide about dessert. We are not chocolate fans but ordered the budino anyway! I told the chocoholic friends it was "to die for!" Our waiter, Steve, told us he was relatively new! He was outstanding. A friendly guy who just made the Valentine's Dinner that much more fun. We might even go back to see him!!!! We will most certainly return soon. Maybe brunch??

My wife and I have been to The Pullman Kitchen for Sunday brunch a few times and have loved it. So we decided to celebrate Valentine’s Day there. We weren’t disappointed. It was great! We enjoyed the food, the ambience, and the service. We have already recommended you to several friends and will continue to do so.

Good food, well prepared. Nice selection of interesting items on a small menu that frequently has several specials. On several recent visits, sturgeon was offered - somewhat unusual to have this fish on a California menu - it was well prepared and perfectly cooked.

Service is always prompt, efficient and pleasant. If you ask for the side room, it is quite and good for conversation.

Small, but good selection of wine to pair with food.

Convenient parking across the street.

Worst experience. Showed up and was told by the manager that we didn’t have a reservation despite showing them the reservation I made with Open Table. They were hosting a special event, either the restaurant or Open table ruined my night. Both the Pullman and Open Table need to get their act together because someone dropped the ball. Please respond with compensation.

We really enjoyed our experience at Pullman Kitchen. The server was excellent, extremely polite and professional. Our entrees were delicious, especially the vegetarian option. The fried green tomato appetizer was so food we almost ordered it twice. This place is great, check it out!

Andrew, our waiter, was xlnt in describing the menu and the special. We started by sharing the steamed mussels which were wonderfully seasoned. I had the special which was also the fish of the day, Sturgeon, and it was absolutely delicious/hot and flavorful served over spaetzle with fingerling potatoes. My daughters duck confit, crisp on the outside while moist and tender on the inside also served over spaetzle was perfect. Pullman is our favorite 'go to' spot in Santa Rosa.....Great Service and Great Food!!!!

I was only in Santa Rosa for one night and I wanted to check out the downtown area. I selected Pullman Kitchen based on the Yelp reviews which were generally very good.

Pullman Kitchen has a nice interior and friendly staff. I ad the bacon-wrapped dates to start and they were good if a little squishy. The key to a good bacon-wrapped date is that you can't make them ahead of time and keep warm. Otherwise they get squishy.

I had the Squash Risotto main course. It was very soupy. Risotto must be made to order or the rice grains absorb too much water and fall apart. The flavors were very good despite the soupiness.

I saw others in the restaurant getting good-looking items and I would definitely give them another chance.

The Pullman Kitchen was a great place to have a delicious weekend breakfast. We both loved our vanilla French Toast and sides of bacon. We started our breakfast with wonderful mimosas. The service was excellent and very welcoming.

Been to Pullman Kitchen twice now, both times for larger sized parties. It is a small place, but they don’t cram you in and the setting is cool. On Mondays they have fried chicken, it’s amazing!

Varied and accessible menu offers choices for everyone including a number of vegetarian options. The chicken is a favorite, as is the pork chop that is served with seasonal veggies.
Prices are super reasonable as are wines.

We had eaten at Pullman Kitchen before and I remembered it being better. This visit was a disappointment. The duck confit was dry and too salty, steak was tough, and the avocado wasn’t ripe. Service was really slow to boot. The spaetzle and grits were good, but everything else was rather lacking.
