Excellent menu, lots of choice. Lovely setting. We ate here a couple of times, sitting both inside and outside. Outside dining is very pretty in the garden, which is well designed with dabbled shade. Great choice of wines!

A lite dinner of two appetizers, a salad and two glasses of wine for just under $100. Service was very good, but the $$$ will make us think twice about coming again or recommending it to someone else. There are other good places to eat, although EDK is a great location and parking is usually not too hard to find.

Took friends to EDK for breakfast: very good menu, professional and friendly service. Quality local ingredients, Flatbed Farm produce and other local products. One of the best in Sonoma. I had breakfast there on more than 10 occasions and never was disappointed.

The food is good, no question, but in my opinion waaayyyyy over priced. I mean really .... $32 for paella! It fried rice ! Stop it out. Costs the restaurant $0.50 to make this. & it's only ok. The salmon was good but small portions, you better get fries too so you don't go hungry. Truffle fries only ok, not... More

This was a reunion of good friends. We had a late lunch around 1:00 pm with great food & service. We were talking and the service continued through out our time at the restaurant. We left around 5:00 pm.

Six of us were staying in Napa and ventured to El Dorado Kitchen upon recommendation of a friend. Every meal was great. Service was professional. Desserts were way too good. Great special occasion restaurant.

I wanted to like this place - and I do believe the rest of my party enjoyed their hangar steak and brussel sprouts and salad. But they did serve me raw chicken. The chicken did come out in record time - so we quickly found out why, When I alerted the waitress she apologized - since I did not want... More

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.
