We found the atmosphere incredibly noisy at 7:30 pm. I assume it's always noisy. No sound abatement in evidence. My husband, who wears very high tech digital hearing aids, was forced to turn them off, which meant basically shouting to discuss dinner choices. Low level...More

El Dorado Kitchen fronts right onto the town plaza, but has an interior patio that is its own private nature preserve, beautifully groomed. The food -- whatever you order -- is delicious and artfullu served. A delightful experience.

Every dish here was excellent and there were several winery owners eating there. I suggest the Paella which was excellent! Service was the best we experienced anywhere in Sonoma.

Food did not live up to the setting or the cost. We did not return and were very disappointed with the experience.

Executive chef Armando Navarro's farm driven cuisine is a collection of earthy yet sophisticated, complex yet straightforward dishes that showcase the essence of seasonal produce. Chef Navarro sources his ingredients from local purveyors and nearby Sonoma farms, a commitment and dedication that is in line with El Dorado’s overall eco-friendly green initiatives.Navarro’s deeply satisfying cuisine can be enjoyed at El Dorado Kitchen. In the center of the main dining room, parties of up to 22 can gather around a 21-foot-long table fashioned from a single wood plank reclaimed from a Vermont bridge. This table is perfectly positioned to afford each diner a view of the artistic talents hard at work in the open kitchen.An outdoor courtyard allows diners to enjoy the beauty of Sonoma. Enjoy dinner under the fig trees and the clear Sonoma sky or take your lunch pool-side in your own private cabana or on one of the inviting day beds by the pool. We also offer casual dining in our lobby, nestled next to the glowing fireplace.
