“Great service, great food, friendly staff”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

This restaurant was recommended to us for lunch after we had finished a wine tasting just down the road. We had an outstanding lunch...it was just what we were looking for. We all shared some delicious oysters on the half shell, fresh and briny. I had a pastrami sandwich, which was one of the specials, and it was excellent - the pastrami was lean (by pastrami standards, anyway). The service could not have been better. Although the restaurant was full, they managed to accomodate our party of seven with hardly a wait. Our servers were attentive and friendly. Looking forward to returning on our next visit to Sonoma.

“grreat place,staff and locale”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

While visiting in Sonoma last week, I had a most enjoyable lunch at the Underwood Bar & Bistro. There food is absolutely delicious and the presentation beautiful. There are so many really really great places to eat in Sonoma and Napa, and this is definitely one of them. I recommend this to anyone who would enjoy a wonderful lunch in very pleasant and friendly surroundings.

The prices are on a par with other restaurants in this area. I had their lamb sandwich and I believe the lunch was around $12-14. Perhaps for the midwest that is a little on the high side, but not for the Sonoma/Napa area.

Go, you won't be disappointed.

“Follow Your Nose In Granton”
Reviewed 22 February 2014 via mobile

You can tell outside this place that it is going to taste good from the fabulous smell of wood and smoke. Nice outdoor seating available too. Big bar so if you need a break from wine this is a good option. Place was still packed for lunch at 1:30pm when we arrived and mostly full when we left at 2:30. Daily specials and big menu. The fries could be improved and the steak dipping sauce didn't work but we would return to try more things.

“Good food, dog friendly patio”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

The bistro has a dog friendly patio. The lunch menu is not large but there are several tasty sounding sandwiches and salads. The food was good and it was a perfect spot to grab a bite while wine tasting in the area. We enjoyed the lunch and will go back when in the area.
