Sonoma Wine Garden Restaurant Review

Restaurateur Jeremy Umland who already owns a Japanese restaurant called
Ozumo at the rooftop Dining Deck located at the brim ofSanta Monica Place, Sonoma Wine Garden offers breathtaking views of the Pacific Ocean beach.
Sonoma Wine Garden, features a “wine country cuisine,” and globally inspired
wines. According to owner Jeremy Umland he wanted to use the name
Sonoma as emblematic of a great wine and culinary region." 


Umland said that Chef Roman Petry is bringing a Mediterranean flair to the menu,” which features “live-fire cooking in a wood oven” resulting in roasted meats, fish
and poultry, along with some casseroles, cheese and charcuterie. The wine list will feature the “Best of Sonoma,” along with global finds. Expect plenty of wines by
the glass, plus six craft beers on tap and a small selection of bottles. 

Glamorous Co. from Japan, a firm that’s also designed Ozumo,
will accent the ocean views with wine cellar accents, an outdoor
bar framed by olive trees and an herb garden.

Sonoma Wine Garden has a brilliant Californian cuisine with Mediterranean, Italian,
and Austrian influences served tapas-style. Featuring a wood-burning pizza oven,
outdoor garden patio and upscale lounge area that offer countless wines from all
over the world. Sonoma Wine Garden is a sophisticated new addition to
the bustling atmosphere of Santa Monica Place.


Sonoma Wine Garden offers event space with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean.
Enjoy intimate candlelit wine dinners for 20 or custom receptions for 200; available
seven days a week. Sonoma Wine Garden is the perfect place to celebrate corporate
events, holiday parties, birthdays, award nominations and film premiers.


With scrumptious signature entrees, this place offers a great variety of Small Plates,
Cheeses, Charcuterie, a variety of wood-fired pizza, Dinner Plate, Desserts and a
superb wine list this is a true charming place to bring the family or a date. We had
a variety of appetizers and among them these are our favorites: The Cheese &
Charcuterie, we tried the Challerhocker a delicious cheese from Switzerland, the
Fromage D’Affinois from France, and Nduja a Boccalone from San Francisco. Also
among the Charcuterie, we sampled the Prosciutto Americano, from La Quercia,
Iowa, which taste if not better as delicious as any Italian famous prosciuttos. The
Barolo Salami from Utah and a Soppressata from Fra Mani, Berkeley.


From the Small Plates, we tried the delicious Brentwood Farms Corn Soup with garden chives. The Fried Polenta was delicious with crème fraiche. Alto the
Grilled Salmon Salmon salad was very good with baby lentils and tarragon
dressing. As far as dinner we sampled the Grilled Albacore a Sicilian
style with shaved fennel and orange sauce.


In terms of desserts we tried their incredible fresh homemade Ice Cream and
Sorbet, and the super amazing Kaiserschmarrn a caramelized Austrian
pancake souffle with raisins and roasted plums.

With a full belly and a smile on my face, we say goodbye to Chef Roman Petry
and the friendly staff for the hospitality and the wonderful experience. With the uniqueness of techniques, the flavors of the sea, and the creative use of
ingredients and amazing ambiance, it is easy to see why th eSonoma
Wine Garden is the go-to place for a great dining experience.
