Make sure you make a reservation at the chef counter. The rest of the restaurant is pretty tight, plus the counter offers a nice view into the kitchen which is always entertaining to watch. Food was amazing! We ordered a pizza and a pasta dish and shared... So so so fresh and flavorful! The bread of the day (i think... More

Glen Ellen Star has the best pizza around! The Star has a lovely, quaint atmosphere and friendly staff. This is our go to spot for a local meal.

We enjoyed watching the magic happening as the chef's created lovely dishes. We had the Brussels sprouts with yummy bacon and a mouth watering ribeye. Truly enjoyed... More

We went for my girlfriends birthday dinner and we split a couple of meals. Pizza was great (brick oven) and rib eye was cooked perfect. Sit at the bar so you can watch them cook the food but beware you will wanna try everything.

Tried this establishment on a recommendation from a local winery. The menu, though limited in entrees, was interesting and innovative. Their house salad was excellent, my wife's Margarita Pizza was great and my rib eye steak was as tender and delicious as can be. Wife had one of their home-made icecream; I opted for their chocolate cake which was actually... More

Watching the chef's team cook the appetizers, entrees and pizza was amazing. It was like a well directed orchestra in the chef's kitchen. A must visit if you are in the Sonoma Valley of the... More
