We arrived promptly for a reservation made weeks ago. The hostess met us at the door. Didn't welcome us and just said it would be 20-30 minutes to be seated. I mentioned the reservation. We were then offered an outdoor garden immediately, which was not set up, but we sat regardless. When I got up to use the ladies room, there were three open tables in the dining room and several others in another garden, all set with lovely linens. We felt like banished children sent away for bad behavior. Food was mediocre. Service embarrassing.

Easy and convenient with your stay at the hotel. Service was good and the food was yummy! We ordered several appetizers and eat at the bar with a really great glass of wine.

If you are staying at the Lodge next door, this place is definitely worth a visit for the well prepared, locally sourced food.

For at least five years, this was my favorite place for lunches. Great food and service was always what I expected and received.
A month or so they changed the menu. I tried two different entrees. Both disappointing.
Went there and figured, "what could go wrong with a hamburger?".
I ordered medium rare. There was not one spot of pink in the burger...
In fairness, I may have hit the cook's day off three times in a row.
The service is still good.

We honestly didn't expect much from this restaurant since it is part/next to the Lodge at Sonoma Renaissance but WOW! There were some innovative dishes that were really outstanding like the pork belly with a deep fried soft boiled egg and heirloom tomato salad with burrata and prosciutto in a strawberry vinaigrette. We also had the octopus (as a main) and hanger steak cooked to perfection and delicious.
