To be honest, the eight of us were coming from the convention center and only had an hour for dinner. Sonoma Grille said that they could accommodate our request for sandwiches/burgers and have us out in an hour. They seated us in the bar area. A long story short, in an hour they were only beginning to serve, a good... More

We had reservations for the above at 6:15 PM in order to have plenty of time to eat prior to an 8 PM Theatre engagement. We were properly seated at 6:15 PM. At the time the hostess told us to make sure we told our waiter that we needed to be out in a timely fashion for the 8 PM... More

The location is very good. Close to the Courtyard Marriott & the Benedum is a couple of block walk. We had the salmon with a maple glaze. The Sonoma salad was hit. For dessert we had the Salted Carmel Creme Brulee & the Chocolate mousse. Wasn't as crazy about the mousse, but the dinner was excellent. Sonoma Grille is now... More

We had a reservation at 6:15 for an 8:00 show, We waited at the hostess stand along with about 8 other people for the Hostess for about 10 minutes. The Hostess seemed to wander around the restaurant without regard to people waiting to be seated. Once seated, we sat for another 10-15 minutes until a waitress took our order. We... More

Sonoma Grille used to be one of our favorite restaurants before going to a show in town. However, our last visit on Feb. 4 was quite a disappointment! To start off, the service was terrible. We ordered wine, but never received it. The soup and vegetables were bland. The tempura shrimp and salmon were okay, although there were only 2... More

Had a lovely dinner here. Our server, Eric, was friendly and helpful without being overdone. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The manager, also, was very friendly and attentive. The basket of bread was fresh from the oven and tasted homemade. Overall, a relaxing, delicious dinner.

My wife and I met 2 other couples for dinner last night. We were disappointed immensely. The service was at the bar was slow despite having 5 bartenders at a medium size bar. My friend commented how much more profitable the place would be with bartenders that were intent on serving their client. We were seated for dinner at a... More

A friend and I were really looking forward to enjoying lunch to celebrate a special occasion. We've had many pleasant experiences on prior visits. The great ambiance still exists; plenty of space between tables where one can easily engage in a conversation without disturbing other patrons. We were looking forward to the outstanding mushroom broth based french onion soup to... More

Good food but not great. It is a nice atmosphere. The salads are pretty good. The menu does not have a lot of options

It was Friday night and we were looking for a bar to grab a drink or two. Found this spot with seats at the bar. Well we found out why. We were quickly greeted by the first bartender, which was nice, but then he never came back. After a while the other bartender did stop by and apologized but then... More
