We could walk here from our place in downtown Sonoma. Good for fish, steaks, cocktails and wine. Nice upscale ambiance and open kitchen concept. The restaurant was is inside a hotel. Service seemed on point and everyone liked there apps, dishes and dessert.

We had a group dinner in a private room. On a cold night, the fire place was very nice. Due to the size of the group, we had a limited menu. The short ribs and the salmon were outstanding. The service was outstanding.

Food is farm to table and it was hard to decide what to have. The food was excellent and is highly recommended. Our waiter was courteous and attentive. Would definitely venture here again if we return to Sonoma.

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.
