Contemporary American
At Sonoma Restaurant and Wine Bar, our culinary mission is straightforward - use the best local ingredients as simply as possible. New American Cuisine places an emphasis on seasonal ingredients that are regionally available, and our menu changes frequently to reflect the Mid-Atlantic’s offerings. The first floor, a bustling, “upscale-casual” bistro and wine bar, offers superior moderately-priced cuisine by using the best local, organic, and naturally raised ingredients. The menu bears a southern European influence, and is comprised of four groups: cheese and charcuterie, handmade pasta and pizzas, wood-grilled meats and fish, and organic salads and produce. The second floor features a lounge and reserve wine bar along with a dining room for private events. Reservations are strongly recommended and can be taken by telephone or through OpenTable.

    We went for restaurant week and it was a great value, but I would not normally go to this restaurant. The food is definitely overpriced and lots of other places have better, comparable food. We did not have good service either. The pizza was mediocre at best. We really loved the $20 bottle of wine for restaurant week though. That was a highlight.

    Tough to get a good feel of a place in COVID times, but this place is pretty good. The food is alright overall, definitely recommend the starter plate with toast and fig preserves. Outdoor seating is great.

    Pizza not hot. Pizza had no flavor as if the chef forgot to add any spices. Gave half of both pizzas to hungry man outside the restaurant

    Went in for lunch and sat at the bar. The bartender was fabulous! I ordered a spectacular glass of wine and some cheeses. Everything was pleasant.

    We arrived early to the restaurant and they accommodated us with no problem. They brought out appetizers early and let us talk before asking about a main course. The focaccia bread with Parmesan crisp and olive oil is outstanding. The arugula salad has the right amount of dressing and is light but filling. I ordered potato gnocchi with caramelized onions and blue cheese, Which was extremely filling the onions were so savory I wanted more. We ended the night with coffee and a chocolate mousse type dessert which was very dense and just the right touch with coffee. The lighting is mood appropriate. Our waiters were extremely attentive and gracious.
