We enjoyed a wonderful dinner at the Depot in their outdoor courtyard patio. We ordered four different entrees and everyone's food was delicious. The best part was the wonderful ambiance.

I've visited the Depot numerous times, and always enjoyed their pasta dishes. This time, I was drawn to the grilled sea bass. It arrived whole - not filleted, as I had expected. I expressed my unhappiness to the waiter, who found it all to be...More

Wonderful location with atmosphere to compliment any occasion. This beautiful jewel is tucked away from the town square, yet close enough to walk to. The surroundings are what authors write about. The service was excellent and attention to every detail was given. The menu was...More

Almost like eating at an Italian villa - outdoor poolside seating, a fountain in the pool, lights strung all around. This was a repeat visit and, again, a delightful experience. The menu contained 5 pasta items, 5 pizza items and 6 main entrees, enough for...More

This was by far, the best restaurant in Napa/Sonoma. It's a few blocks from the center of Sonoma, but you must definitely go. Our food was utterly delicious! We ordered the black seafood pasta, veal and spaghetti and everything was top notch. Randall was our...More

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.
