SO GOOD! – I could find nothing wrong with my experience at Sonoma Grille! The atmosphere, food, staff.. it was all wonderful! It is a little bit on the expensive side, but the quality of the food and drinks combined with the overall experience makes it well worth it. If I had to recommend anything i'd say to definitely try the mushroom flatbread and the white sangria. They're both amazing! But, so is everything else there. I'd recommend this restaurant to anyone!
California Dreamin' – In June, I had the pleasure of going to Sonoma Grille for a tasting one day with my company. It was a wonderful experience and we got to try pretty much everything. My favorite drink was the Lady Bug White Wine that goes great with the cheese they put out for us. It was a sweet, delicious treat. The cheese platter complimented this wine and consisted of Irish Cheddar, Goat Cheese, Sheeps Milk Cheese, Chiphoni, apple slices, grapes, and flatbread. The food was off the charts and as a Chicken lover I thoroughly enjoyed the Indonesian Chicken Satay with peanut sauce and organic Amish chicken. This is a great place to go before or after a show down in the cultural district for a nice cocktail or outstanding dining experience that you will be raving about after to everyone!
Downtown Miss – I went to dinner with my family and the night started off very nice with the wine and appetizers. We were all uncertain what to do so it took us a while, besides we had eight people! The staff was very impatient and even though they were fast with food, it was very "rush" feeling. I felt like the waitress was in a hurry to leave. If we didn't have bottles of wine in our system, we could of been alot defensive. The food was barely tolerable. There were some good qualities with food but the staff needs re-placed asap. Especially all of the females in that place, they were all pretty ridiculous when we asked for anything. I advise the owner to get rid of everyone and hire staff with class and manners.
Sonoma Gas – I went there with my friends to have a good time, just ladies when we had a waitress who was rude, ignorant and very trashy.
Downtown Bliss – The service was phenomenal, I felt like I never wanted to leave the restaurant. If it wasn't a little pricey I would come by every day. There is so much fantastic food on the menu, make sure you try something new every time you visit.
And you wine lovers out there are in for a treat...their wine list is out of this world!
Wonderful food – I ordered the sweet potato gnocchi when I went and it was phenomenal! Everything that I ate down to the homemade bread was wonderful-they even make the oil to dip the bread in-house. I also had the cheesecake for dessert with rasberries and a chocolate straw. It was one of the best slices of cheesecake I've ever had.
phenonenal spot – best wine list in town, hands down. great place for a first date; low key, but classy! highly highly recommended.
Great Wine Selection – When I recently visited the Sonoma Grille on Penn Ave, in the Cultural District, I was looking through their menu and noticed they have quite an extensive wine list!
I think the server told me they had something like 100+ wines available by the glass and even more by the bottle.. I love trying wines from different vineyards, especially Californian wines, which they carry a wide variety of.
First-rate Everything! – I have had numerous visits to Sonoma Grille and have been pleased every time. Their food is freshly made and delicious, their bartenders are some of the best in the city, and the ambiance is both stylish and comfortable.
While it can be a little pricey, quality defines Sonoma. Guests are treated with courtesy and respect, and no request is too demanding. With great service, an exquisite menu, and fantastic drinks, I will continue to frequent this fine establishment. (I'm actually thinking of going this weekend.)
Excellent Food, Excellent Atmosphere – I've been to Sonoma a few times and loved it every time! The atmosphere and lighting makes the place feel warm and comfortable, yet still elegant and chic.
The staff are very aware of everyone and makes sure you enjoy your food.
Everything from the bread to the appetizer to the entree and the dessert were delicious. Everything came out warm and you can tell that it was made to order. I really like how they have the mixed grill menu so I can mix and match my meal. I had the salmon with black peppercorn sauce and the linguini with salsa nero. I definitely recommend the Linguini!!
As for desserts, the peanut butter semifreddo is a must!!
I am definitely going to keep going back to Somona and recommend it to everyone!!
