The food and ambiance was very nice. However, we came in around 1030 specifically to try the Evisha hookah, assuming it would be available since the menu said it was available until close. I later found out that there is a 2 hour limit, there for I didn’t get to order one. It would just be helpful to have that indicated on the menu or on the website. Overall it was a great experience, and I’m looking forward to trying out the brunch.

This was our first time at Sonoma Wine Cellars, but it won’t be our last. This is a hidden gem in Old Town. The wine was great and everyone’s food was amazing. We had the brie and fig jam crostini for an appetizer, OMG so good! I could eat just that with a glass of wine and I would be good. I had the salmon with mushroom risotto and it was perfect. The risotto was fantastic. My friends ordered the hanger steak, burger, and a salad and they all raved about their meals. This is my new favorite spot in Old Town, I will definitely be back.

The food, ambiance, and service at this restaurant are fabulous. The servers anticipated our needs- we never had to try to grab their attention - and the food was outstanding. The eggplant chips were an unexpected highlight.

We enjoyed a wonderful and relaxing lunch at the Front Porch. Our waitress was very friendly and professional. We asked for some modifications to our meal which were easy to make, and even received some recommendations from our waitress concerning how best to make the changes. Our water glass was never empty and we received our check promptly. The crab dip and Front Porch salad was outstanding.
