Description: “French comfort food”. These three words may not seem like they belong together but they do here at Le Lyonnais. Our concept is one of simple, affordable, yet delicious dishes inspired by time honored recipes from my hometown of Lyon some of which have been in my family for generations.

Sonoma Grille has an excellent wine menu. The service is very attentive and the dinner menu has many savory choices. Each of us (3) ordered different entrees and each enjoyed our selections. They were full of distinct flavors and great tastes. This restaurant is a wonderful choice for anyone visiting the city.

Brunch, lunch and dinner are always enjoyable. Lively atmosphere. Great for theater crowds. Food is well prepared, reasonably priced and very good.

We enjoyed a lovely meal at Sonoma Grille. Britney, our hostess, was most accommodating, and Daniel offered excellent service. The restaurant was only a five minute walk to the Benedum Theatre. Highly recommended!

Was staying close to Sonoma Grille and it was rated 4 out of 5 stars on another site by 150 or so reviewers, so decided to give it a try.

Went with a colleague that is very into food. We both walked away feeling the same. It starts with a menu that just doesn't have anything that jumps out at you. It was advertised on the other site as a Tapas restaurant, which is very misleading. A few appetizers, but hardly an eclectic menu that one would expect from a good Tapas restaurant.

Our waitress seemed very fond of beets. She was pushing the beet soup and the beet salad. Don't know about everyone else, but I think beets are a bit of an acquired taste, so feels odd that they would be pushing them.

We both ended up ordering the "Mixed Grill", mainly because nothing else sounded overly appealing. You choose from a Filet Kabab (steak and mushrooms on a skewer), Ahi, Salmon and maybe one or two other meats (I got the first two). Then it's a choice of having them served over pasta or an asian vegetable stir fry (we both got the latter and it was good) and also choose from half a dozen dipping sauces.

Overall, it was a nice dish. I might go back again for the same thing, but wouldn't be in a hurry. There may be some great dishes that we didn't try, but again, not overly appealing.

They do have a very good wine selection, so must give them that.

I had the Bronzino special - It was delicious. My daughters had off-the menu entrees, both were well prepared and delicious. We appreciated the valet parking and the welcoming manner of all staff we came in contact with.
