We had a little over an hour to eat here because we were with a small bus tour group and several of us chose this restaurant. The food was excellent. I had the rigatoni for main course and my wife had a salad – both were delicious and the strawberry shortcake for dessert was outstanding. There was a nice selection... More

Nice quaint restaurant with patio seating. Slow to be seated and waited on. Ordered breakfast- hash and eggs, very very bland. Very disappointed!

The Plaza is also called the Sonoma Square by tourists. The Plaza Bistro happy hour is the best in town from 4 - 7 p.m. beating out all other places by an hour on the later side. The happy hour dinner menu is excellent and one bartender in particular, Sky, is one of the best with sophistication and style to... More

After a day of wine tasting, we wanted a good Italian meal to complement a nice bottle of red wine. Plaza Bistro had a great selection of entrees and the service was incredible (thank you Oscar). The owner came by our table more than once and was seen checking on all the guests throughout our meal. You won't be disappointed.

This place is located on Sonoma Square. It is much larger than it appears from the outside. We received excellent service from two look-a-like sisters. All 4 of us were happy with our meals. Prices were very moderate.

Not huge but had some tables inside and both in front on the sidewalk and in a courtyard in back. Great menu and food we ordered was excellent. I'm a sucker for... More

We had a real good lunch here, good food and service. They have a small patio in the back. The dinner menu looks very good, have to try it on next trip to wine country. Really good value too.

Great place for lunch on the way to the wineries. I had a salmon sandwich with a side salad and the hubby had Italian scrambled eggs something. I would definitely return here. This place was finger licking good.
