Owners Karen and Lucas have created our favorite "go to" spot for drinks, delicious bar bites or a full on meal. A varied menu with daily specials, the selections play to the strengths of Sonoma County; seafood, free range chicken and grass fed beef. K & L features delicious local cheeses, fruits and of course, locally produced world class wines.... More

We were first attracted to K&L while walking past one evening. There was a lot of laughter from the diners, not of the vino exuberance type, just good-natured fun being had. About two weeks later we went there to celebrate our anniversary and had a wonderful dinner with great food, wine, and service. The next time we also had a... More

Friendly staff, busy but organized, and an upbeat style. We were especially impressed with the number of staff assisting with our meal. Everything magically appeared before us. Bread, drinks, appetizer, and our meals were all delivered more than timely, yet not rushed. After a full day of wine tasting we wanted a good tasty meal and we got it. Calamari... More

We came after the movies, at 10pm, and discovered an active bar scene, very pleasant bartenders, and a late night bar menu that offered lots of choices for the hungrey including a great hamburger and ramen soup. Easy street parking. Food available until 11pm.

I had their Ahi tuna tartar appetizer, which was awesome! It came with a flavorful but subtle orange sauce and homemade seeded crackers. I had an open-faced wild chanterelle mushroom sandwich and butternut squash and kale quiche (spiced with nutmeg). Yum! Finally I had a hazelnut chocolate torte for dessert, which was large enough for three of us to share!... More

Enjoyed the onion soup and fennel salad. Soup perfectly prepared, onions delicious. Partner had the catfish sandwich. Tasty and not over breaded. Service top notch.

Excellent, simple, well-prepared food with very friendly competent service and a relaxing atmosphere. One night earlier, we went to the very famous Solbar in Calistoga and spent twice (literally!) the money for food not nearly as good. If you want pretentious "cuisine" prepared by a sou chef from someone else's recipe go to Solbar, if you want real food prepared... More

Pricey. A bit pretentious. Friendly, but amateur service. I definitely felt I got a lesser level of attention as a visitor compared to the regular locals who came in for dinner. The burger was delicious, and the wine as well. Value for money was just OK.
