This is California cuisine at its finest - super fresh, simple preparation! Everything that we tasted was absolutely delicious along with great cocktails and a lovely wine selection. It's in the beautiful Sonoma square which should not be missed.

We were there for the catered affair so the menu was limited. Everything was good just not at as a high of a par as I expected when walking in the building as the it was such a lovely space.

The perfect way to start off our day in Sonoma. After flying for 4.5 hours and then driving from San Francisco we stopped at the El Dorado Kitchen for a late lunch. The food was so good and the sever couldn't have been nicer.

El Dorado Kitchen was recommended by a friend, and was a great lunch spot on a blistering day. The hotel has only 27 rooms, but the restaurant has large capacity, including the courtyard patio. Short lunch menu, but plenty of tasty salad and shellfish options....More

Had 5:30 reservations. Had to wait 15 minutes for table even though we were one of the first groups in the door. How is that possible? When ordering my meal, I was told I would need to also order my dessert to make it easier...More

We visited El Dorado Kitchen for our ten year anniversary and it was perfect. The carbonara was excellent! I loved the mussels the best. And my husband really liked their carpaccio. Service was very attentive and the atmosphere was lovely and romantic for our anniversary.

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.
