Weekend afternoon visit. Has a nice collection of beers, wine and cocktails. We ordered the pizza, salmon with risotto. The food was excellent and the service was the best. Very pleasant experience. Will definitely revisit the next time we are in the area.

The atmosphere is very friendly. The food was pretty good. The servers were friendly and helpful. Fish & Chips was good. They serve local Kenwood beer which was good too.

Great food, wine and draft beer options. (Don't skim over that comment, I really mean that.) Perfect after a hike in Sugar Loaf Park. Or place to wander into after walking to the many wine tastings within a sandaled stroll. Oysters are on the menu....More

Fun lunch and dinner spot for great food and drink. Palooza's is in the heart of the Kenwood next to some great tasting rooms. I love the idea that they serve all Sonoma County wines, beers and distilleries, that's going local! The food was terrific,...More
