This is not your typical hotel restaurant so dont let the fact that it is located in the Fairmont deter you from dining her. The food & service is simply outstanding!! It's not cheap but worth every penny. Oh and the wine list in long and vast with offerings for anyone's pallet.

The restaurant was fully booked, but we were able to eat in the bar and order food from the restaurant or the bar. Everything we ate and drank was delightful. Our server was very attentive and helpful. I loved the lobster mac and cheese.

Atmosphere is modern elegant and part of the lovely Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn. Room is relatively intimate with coveted window tables; if you are along a wall the tables are large enough to for two to sit together rather than having one staring at a blank wall and being in the pathway of servers. Our stunning meal was also accompanied... More

Just visited recently and stayed in luxurious room; celebrating time away with husband. We made reservations for spa treatment and it was absolutely wonderful. We will be visiting again soon.

Atmosphere is great, the food was only o.k. For dinner we ended up paying $24.00 for a plate of mac and cheese and this was only about one cup measure of food. It was not tasty either. We ordered other items with the same results and bill was nearly $200.00 for a couple and a two-year old. Breakfast was slightly... More

We stayed at the hotel and we had dinner in Santé only one night, if I had known it was going to be that good we would have had dinner there every night. Everything was delicious, good wine selection and the service was good. We chose to a table outside but it was the end of May and it was... More

Sante, located at the Fairmont Mission Inn,is comprised of an indoor dining room along with outside patio (borders the common pool) dining. The proximity to the pool, while delightful to view, can be a bit loud when dining early. While patio dining in the cool California weather is quite enjoyable, the presence of large umbrella stands that one has to... More

Sante was a busy restaurant located in the Fairmont Sonoma Mission Inn. The menu offered a variety of choices with a wonderful wine selection. The staff was professional and efficient. Chef's specialities were served prior to the meal and they included trout. One of the diners was allergic to seafood. Once the staff learned of the allergy, the plate was... More
