Happy hour with sister, told the bartender will like to use the Groupon before expire, she said can't use on happy hour menu, I said I understand, order 2 rack of Lamb, appetizer and wine, the Lamb is very small has too much fat and cook too rare, hard to chew, I order med-rare to med, take 3 pieces of lamb to go, ( 1 from me 2 from my sister) bartender told me that I can't take any food home with Groupon, I said I can't eat it, my husband will eat it later, ( because he like it rare) then she said, CAN"T feed your whole family with happy hour and Groupon!!!!!!! What ?????? when she bring me the check she said it again, and she said she let me go this time just don't do it again, I said please don't do me any favor, charge me whatever you suppose to charge me! The Groupon did not said can't take food home !!!! , only said no alcohol. the waitstaff / bartender shouldn't treat the coupon customer like they're cheap to use the coupon , for the $20.00 discount they make me felt cheap and disgrace and doing me a favor to take my left over home. if they feel like they are losing money from coupon customer, then they should not do coupon! for the price they charge,I hardly think they are losing money, $28.00 for 4 little tiny pieces of lamb with sauteed veggie. and beware of the wine price too, after happy hour is very high, for happy hour with Groupon we spend $120.00! ( last week no coupon, order the fish and a red wine flight, fish is dry and the wine by itself is $37.00 2 oz each, from Argentina, Spin and Ca. nothing outstanding except the price) Just beware! wine price change all the time, from $17 jump to $37. I try almost everything there, The grass fed beef and the dessert is not bad, scallop and the crab cake is ok too.

Dismal experience. I took my son's family and my wife there for supper. I should have realized when we walked in and saw that the restaurant was half empty when there was an hour wait at surrounding restaurants. The wine we ordered was mediocre, and Sonoma claims to be a wine bar. They were out of the filet I ordered and I agreed to a substitute strip steak, which was overcooked and somewhat tough. The couscous was too salty too eat, and when I complained, the waiter said that the chef said "It was a little salty", and took $10 off the bill. A good restaurant, in my experience, would have comped the entire meal. My son ordered shrimp and scallop pasta, which consisted of two shrimp, two rather mangled scallops, and a big bowl of pasta. The other meals were similarly poor. All this was not cheap. We would have been better off at a chain restaurant for less than half the cost.

Sunday Brunch was fantastic. Brunch and Lunch menu had a lot to offer without a distressing price. Although we didn't partake of the wines or mimosas the food and ambiance was pleasant. Food took a little longer to get to the table but not terrible. The waiter and service was friendly, helpful, and attentive. The relaxed atmosphere was great for us and our friends to enjoy spirited conversation and an awesome meal. The Turkey Panini, French Toast, and Spring Omelet were superb. A definite repeat for us.

This place is great! I have been here a few times and the customer service is always consistently exceptional. The employes actually take the time to remember your name and go out of the way to ensure you have a good experience. I love having Emily (sommelier) help me find a great wine, she always makes the experience fun minus the pretentiousness.
