Nice interior, not stuffy or formal. Looks like the local winemakers and farmers favor this restaurant, based on who we saw walk in. Very good to excellent wine list. I had a pasta in a cream sauce and spouse chose the Bolognese. We are still...More

Five went for a Sunday supper and all were pleased. There are a series of interconnected rooms, many looking onto a lighted garden. The menu is sufficiently varied, from salads and pizzas to pastas (homemade) and more sturdy complete meals. The desserts are excellent, jumbo...More

Pleasant, inviting space with lovely views of the garden fountain. Delicious Italian dishes. My veal marsala was tender and perfectly sauced. Excellent service and wine choices. Highly recommend. If staying in Sonoma, just a block or so off of the plaza.

Wish I could answer but I'm in VA and the Depot is in CA--give them a call!
We would be a party of 8 and will be a surprise for my husband because his siblings are flying in to surprise him for his 60th birthday. Would like to meet for lunch on Saturday, 7/30 earlyish, around 11:45 am? Siblings would have to arrive by 11:30 to be seated when we enter. Please let me know if that could work for you? Tricia

The DEPOT HOTEL RESTAURANT is a charming neighborhood restaurant located in an historic stone building just a block off the Plaza in Sonoma. Locals and visitors to the Wine Country enjoy casual Tuscan-inspired cuisine in the Vinoteca, in the cozy dining rooms, and on the terraces surrounding the shady Italian garden and reflection pool. Food is a passion at the DEPOT HOTEL RESTAURANT for the father and son Chef team--whether it is making house-made antipasti, or handmade pasta, or fresh ricotta. In addition to products made in-house, the Sonoma wine country around us offers an abundance of new artisanal products. The search for the best local products is a treasure hunt both chefs enjoy--whether from the coast, local farms, or local cheese makers. Come join us for a trattoria-style lunch or dinner...or just drop into our Vinoteca for informal small plates of antipasti and a glass of wine. Our focus is casual Italian comfort food--served in an informal Sonoma wine country atmosphere.
