This was our third visit to El Dorado kitchen during the past four years. Every time we eat there it’s always a delightful experience. The food is sensational and the service couldn’t be better. The seafood paella was out-of-this world carbonara was very tasty but...More

Paella was amazing! Loved the New York steak (almost a filet mignon in taste). Absolutely delicious and beautifully presented! Ian was an attentive and professional server. Great wine list, too.

We had lunch here on dec 27th. We didn’t have a reservation, but they were kind enough to seat us right away. The staff was very attentive and the food was delicious!

Very nice breakfast with friendly and efficient service. Casual wine country vibe right on Sonoma plaza. Prices are reasonable for the area.

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.
