Probably one of the worse dinning experiences I've had! Our server Jon seemed nice at first. One of my friends ordered one unlimited mimosa. There was 4 adults and a 2 year old lunching there. Our server seemed to want to clear up the table after us being there 2 hours. So we proceeded to sit close to the bar where we can steal hang out and clear out the table we were currently at. Mind you we had a child with us. Our server proceeded to tell the bartender at the bar to not serve us anymore alcohol because we were drunk! I got so upset because we each had one drink with our brunch and my one friend had 3 mimosas with her unlimited order. We were no where drunk we had a child to look after but I found it so rude that the server would lie about us like that! I will never step foot at this place again!!!
Great place. Superb wine choices
We dined at their location in Sonoma. We looked forward to having a leisurely lunch, but felt pressured to order, though the restaurant was not very busy. Once our food arrived, we were able to dine at a leisurely rate. The food was not outstanding in taste. I was very disappointed by the chicken sandwich with barbecue sauce. It was very ordinary and the barbecue sauce was the worse I've ever eaten. My sandwich was soggy. The clam chowder was salty, though it had a generous serving of clams.
Hello Lyn, I believe you might have meant to review a different venue, as we are not located in Sonoma, and we don't offer the items you mention. Sorry to hear that your experience at the other restaurant was sub-par, but if you're ever in Los Angeles please stop by - you won't be disappointed! Kind Regards, Cal Clarke General Manager Sonoma Wine Garden Santa Monica CA
I was disappointed with the service which affected my overall assessment of the restaurant. Burrata and salad to start were great but my sea bass lacked flavor and was over cooked. My boy friends bolognese was okay but nothing to rave about.
Service was fine, but the food was less than mediocre.
Location and ambiance nice, but did not make up for the poor food
Won’t go back
Great service! Thank you.
The images does not are real
The ambience are very warm
food good, salads and pizza better the main courses.
We had a great time! Lovely atmosphere and DJ was great!
Restaurante bonito muy bien decorado, buena carta de vino y buen precio de vino.....el servicio muy malo nada profesional y la comida justita en la elaboración a pesar de tener buen profucto
It was great food and wine and the waiter was excellent.
Wonderful brunch! The service was great and the food was absolutely delicious. I will make sure to come back to this restaurant when I am in town. The view was beautiful and well worth the money.
Love the place , the ambiance
We really like this place and the ambiance, but just wish they had a few more vegetarian food options. Otherwise the vibe and bottomless mimosas are awesome! Also the margherita pizza is very good. On Sunday the Dj was playing really good music.
Dreadful service. Indifferent food.
Perfect atmosphere, vast selection of wines in bottle/glass and good food.
I would go back there!
Lovely food and the staff were fantastic. Would definitely reccomend going
Poor service and average food.
Beautiful night! Ambiance is beyond gorgeous! The Sauvignon Blanc was amazing! I just had a salad, so I can’t say much about the food! But, my beet salad was very good. Service was very good!
I will definitely be back!! 😊
I truly love this place
Great views, music, atmosphere. Bottomless mimosas are great!
First time going with a reservation. Usually, we sit at the bar. We had brunch on Labor Day. Great food, and a great deal with bottomless mimosas too. Our waiter was great, the DJ was great. All in all, a great time.
We decided to try the new free music that was offered on Saturday night in the one room. Unfortunately, you can tell it is new. It needs work- the atmosphere is not very inviting( please dim the lights) and the room is too open- it needs to somehow to be closed off from the rest of the restaurant. We will give it another try the next time we are back in town. We do love sitting at the bar for happy hour!
We enjoyed the meal and the table. At the time of booking, I indicated it was a birthday lunch. Unfortunately our server, did not bring a complementary birthday dessert even after one of us mentioned it to her away from the table. Instead, after we paid the bill, she brought a dessert menu, apologized that she did not add a chosen dessert and IT’S PRICE to the bill and did we want to order something?
Prachtige stijlvolle en toch betaalbare locatie. Aanrader!
Great food. Beet salad and then the fish for me and burata and then the steak frites for my husband. Jonathan our waitstaff was perfect. Good sense of humor a nd very knowledgeable. Both the som and manager came by to chat and were very gracious. Oh, and we had a view of the ocean!
My girlfriend ordered a goat cheese and beets salad, which was supposed to be her whole dinner. However, we were served a salad with greens, some beets and no more than 5 grams of grated (goat?) cheese. We complained and were told they ran out of goat cheese that day. However, they should have told us before we ordered instead of trying us to serve a different dish. The server was very arrogant as he told us we should thank him cause they removed the salad (which my girlfriend didn’t eat) from the bill. On top of this, my fettuccini were full of garlic while that was not written in the menu. A very disappointing experience overall
Très bon restaurant avec un cadre sympa (terrasse extérieure)
Hi there. We came for brunch and our server was lovely. The eggs benedict was pretty bland, and horribly undercooked. I'm used to runny yolks, but not super runny whites with a thin layer of cooked white outside. No salt or pepper anywhere in site, no seasoning, and a pretty sad showing all the way around. Even the diet coke tasted off. My friend had a G&T that was pretty dismal as well, or I would have ordered a cocktail too...
Dinner with friends!
Took 45 minutes to get a glass of wine. Very slow service. Nice patio but loud. Food was okay but overpriced for the quality.
Our server was awful
Had a wonderful time for the first hour of the 2 hour brunch special. The waiter then got in the weeds and neglected us for over 30 minutes with requests from our table outstanding. He then brought the checks and encouraged us that our two hour window was expiring. Did not seem fair, then unprompted the manager came to our table to encourage us to leave as well. A shame because we were certainly not a rowdy table and because we had not been met with the fine service we were promised. Will not be returning unfortunately based on this experience with this particular manager.
Hello WWIII, I'm sincerely sorry you felt rushed. Unfortunately your table had dined for over 2.5 hours and was preventing the reservation booked after you from enjoying brunch as well. We offerend complimentary drinks to your entire party at the bar to prolong your experience while accomedating other guests in hopes to help mediate any frustrations.
Best place to celebrate a birthday! We had a great time!
My cousin and I met for drinks after work. We arrived maybe 20 or 25 mins early but were still seated right away! The table we were seated at was a little too sunny and we were moved to another table with no issue. The food and drinks were good, our waiter was good, the night was enjoyable!
Great pre movie spot... awesome staff...bar area looks cool to hang out too...nice wine list and non fussy eats
Beautiful outdoor seating area and great service. We were very pleased with our experience.
das Ambiente ist ansprechend, der Service war sehr unfreundlich und arrogant, das Essen mittelmäßig, das Preis/Leistungsverhältnis schlecht
We loved it!
Limited menu, adequate service and awful music. If you don't drink wine then no reason to go.
