A good place to go on a nice day to sit outside and enjoy a good meal. Indoors is a bit dark and noisy for my taste, but the outdoor dining is a treat. The food is varied and satisfying-bar food taken to a slightly higher standard. Service is good, but stick to the beers (as the name Tavern might... More

Driving by, we experienced the most tantalizing fragrances coming from HopMonk. Unfortunately, that was not our experience. No helpful greeting to direct us to our table, a somewhat longish wait before anyone greeted us, pretty much bored/offhand service. All we wanted was burger and fries as we were told by a friend they were to-die-for. Our hamburger was Tiny, the... More

If you're looking for very good selection of craft beers and good food to go along with it, you'll find it in HopMonk Tavern. Their Angus beef sliders are very good.The list of craft beer they carry include their own and other local producers.

Ok, with bistro food, cafe type atmosphere. Rare late night place in Sebastoplo. Adequate menu and beverages

I used to not like the food and service at HopMonk but the last two times I went, food was very good. Crowded with young people in the evenings - hard to get a spot to sit and have a beer on the weekends.

While not the best place I've eaten in Sonoma or Napa, this place has a terrific vibe, nice balance of casual laid-back bar scene but also with great food and ambience. We sat outside at the picnic tables and watched the sunset, from bright light to a nice, cool evening. The food was all delicious, well prepared, and served nicely.... More
