We went to sample local fare and were told the special was live Maine lobster - wait, what?! That's 3,000 miles away! If any place could pull off local, season, sustainable, it would be Sonoma County. My wife's chicken was good, the carpaccio was good,...More

Our party of seven had lunch outside on the patio. The food was excellent. The service was very good. It is a bi pricey, but then again everything that is upscale in Sonoma is pricey. The fish tacos were popular. Excellent wine list and drink...More

We ate here on the last night of our honeymoon and it was one of the best restaurants we dined at during our 3 week trip to California. We particularly loved the seafood paella and scallops with lobster tail. Service was great and staff were...More

We had our Rehearsal dinner at El Dorado Kitchen. They had a great set up for our group with a private room & patio for pre-dinner cocktails. The service and food were wonderful!

After growing accustomed to excellent foood and service, today was a real disappointment. The service was off e.g no bread offering. I only had a salad for lunch and the lettuce was wilted. Not what I expected in a Caesar.

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.
