Went with my husband for dinner. We shared their combo dinner for one and still had too much to eat it all. The food was good and the service was awesome. Definitely a must if you are staying in Sonoma.

A must "go to" restaurant in Sonoma. Rob and his crew do a phenomenal job of all of the smoked meats. My favorite is short ribs and Gene's is brisket. BUT, everything else is superb. Moist chicken for those that don't do beef, salad to...More

Cochon Volant BBQ Smoke House serves classic American barbecue—ribs, brisket, pork shoulder, chicken and more—smoked over almond wood and presented Texas-style—sliced to order, priced by the pound and served on a butcher paper-lined tray. Sandwiches, sides, Larman’s signature “Killer” fries and “Big Ass” salads round out the menu, which should be familiar to Cochon Volant fans and those whose memories go back to Rob’s Rib Shack in the Sonoma Valley.
