The dining room is dark and elegant, not stuffy but comfortable enough to get cozy and settle in for a quiet talk and some good food. A specialty cheese cart and wine list is something to look forward to no matter what time of day you choose to dine. The daily menu is healthy and offers a wide array of different options that can fit the mood of those famished, or those who just need a snack. A brunch menu is also available on Sundays which is a great time to get a close up look at the local artist displays around the restaurant.

Though the environment is a little more laid back than other Sonoma restaurant options, the fine dining experience is apparent from the moment you set foot in the door. With service that goes above and beyond fantastic and the affordable pricing on the menu, you don't want to pass this choice up.

Carneros Bistro

Located inside the Rennaissance Hotel, this Sonoma restaurant has been voted into the top 50 restaurants found anywhere in the bay area, let alone Sonoma County, by San Francisco magazine. The cuisine is modern and features local ingredients, with emphasis placed on seasonal products. The wine list is huge but the prices are affordable, so being able to add a bottle to the meal isn't a big deal. It isn't far from any Sonoma Bed and Breakfast either, so getting there early enough to get a table should be a piece of cake. Speaking of cake, Carnero's Bistro provides an entire dessert menu that features liquid nitrogen ice cream.
