15 Best Restaurants Near Sonoma

10 / 2023 | by: Sonoma Magazine

It’s hard to pick just 15 dining spots I love in the Sonoma Valley, one of the most beautiful swaths of Wine Country and a place I don’t appreciate nearly as much as I should.

The area roughly spans Kenwood to Schellville (at least in my mind) and the beautiful views, awe-inspiring patios and remarkable chefs do our county proud. I’m only scratching the surface of the food scene here, but I have some definite favorites.


For the Wine Country lifestyle — Folktable: That it’s tucked into the Cornerstone Sonoma gardens and shopping center is the icing on the cake for this casual Wine Country restaurant led by chef Casey Thompson and recently awarded a Michelin Bib Gourmand for high-quality affordability. Refreshing salads, a perfect fried chicken sandwich, seasonal soups and fresh oysters are favorites. 23584 Arnold Drive, Sonoma, 707-356-3567, folktable.com
