    Food was not really up to par but I may have chosen the wrong menu item. The continental left a lot to be desired. Server seemed very disinterested. This was unusual as staff are normally attentive, without being intrusive.

    Was excited to try this restaurant, but quickly became disappointed. Food was poorly seasoned. Prime rib was paper thin and overcooked. Shrimp cocktail was tasteless and most likely frozen. Ham dinner was tough to eat. Believe it or not but the service was worse than the food. Overpriced for sure..

    Poor service. Obvious wait staff was not properly trained. Wine ordered was wrong vintage when brought to table, waiter did not check, cocktail was incorrectly prepared, waiters "disappeared" having a long wait for our check.

    Sonoma was unprepared and unenthusiastic as many couples made reservations but had to wait 30+ minutes for a table. Food was good but greatly over valued, especially the French Onion soup which lacked it’s unique broth and flavor.

    We highly recommend Sonoma restaurant! We had a wonderful meal, starting with the Mezze platter (all freshly made dips and bread), and the Sea Bass and Chicken entrees. All were delicious! The chef has elevated the menu and the preparations to a new level. The service was attentive and gracious and the atmosphere is both upscale and inviting. The pricing of the food and wine was very reasonable, especially given the quality of the ingredients and the imagination of the preparation.

    My group were the only people in the restaurant dining. Food portions were small for price. Steak was paper thin for the price. Everyone left hungry after paying $250 for 4 people, no drinks, no dessert. Had to go to another restaurant to fill up.

    Upon seating we were told to order the 4 courses now. After getting our first drink and taking 2 sips, our first course was on the table. Half thru the first course, the second course was on the table. Wine list leaves much to be desired. Food was fair.

    I ordered a cup of clam chowder and a Caesar salad with chicken. My date ordered a nicoise salad. We also had a side order of brussel sprouts and asparagus. The clam chowder taste it very good, although it was a little soupy, I prefer my a little thicker. It was 99% broth, hardly any clams or potatoes or anything else. At first glance, the nicoise salad looked very good. It came with an egg cut in half as part of the salad, when my date went to eat she noticed that it was not a hard boiled egg, it was basically a soft-boiled egg with a runny yolk. Personally I don't mind soft-boiled egg, but never on a salad. So she opted to have a Caesar salad. The lettuce on both Caesar salad seemed not fresh, not nice crispy romaine lettuce like you usually get. The lettuce was somewhat limp. The chicken was overcooked, dry and tough. I love brussel sprouts, these brussel sprouts were very blah. The asparagus was overcooked the point where the asparagus was mushy and stringy. They did not charge us for the asparagus, is good I ate only one spirit and that was it. Server was great, I really feel sorry for her. I gave her a 50% tip because she did a great job under terrible circumstances.

    The chef at Sonoma is amazing. Our dishes were prepared perfectly - such attention to detail, fresh ingredients and care went into everything we were served. The ambiance is lovely, whether outside on the large beautifully landscaped patio or inside the elegant restaurant. The prices are quite reasonable for an upscale fine dining restaurant. We highly recommend!!

    Unfortunately, we found the food to be unexceptional for the money. The service was poor. We were the only diners left in the restaurant but the server forgot items and we had to wait for her to appear to remind her we still had not received them. She appeared to be busy doing other things. On the positive side, the ambience was nice, and the cocktails were good.

    Service not what I expected. Asked for a bottle of wine, waiter set bottle and glasses on table and walked away, i wound up opening and pouring. My wife order Filet Mignon and got Steak tips w/ bourbon blueberries. When I brought this to the waiters attention he argued that was the Filet Mignon. Both my wife's and my steak were not done as requested. When I made reservations I stated it was our Anniversary, nothing was done by Sonoma. We have eaten there in the past, but this was a very bad experience, will never go back.

    This place has the best baklava I’ve ever had in my life. At the moment the chef is doing a thrilling orange water version with cardamom and spice. I wish I could order a whole tray of it! The rest of the experience was delightful. Plump tender scallops, a rich creamy Caesar Salad, and truffle fries crisp enough to take back home; I came in from out of town but I’ll definitely be back next time I’m in this city.

    It was empty at 6pm on a Friday night... that should have been our sign! We have a lot of dietary restrictions, and the waitress honestly didn't know the difference between a gluten allergy & a dairy allergy. YIKES. The chef came out to talk with us, but had to significantly modify dishes to fit our needs. The fries were clearly frozen, and veggies lacked luster. But the meats were superbly cooked and delicious. Summary: Great chef at an empty restaurant= not worth the HUGE price tag.
