The Cavalier is an all-day London-inspired brasserie, located in the new Hotel Zetta.<br /><br />This is the third property for restaurateurs Anna Weinberg, James Nicholas & Chef Jennifer Puccio; the team behind Marlowe and Park Tavern. The team has collaborated with award winning San Francisco designer Ken Fulk, who has revamped the interior in deep leather banquettes, polished brass, zinc and white marble, giving it a posh and sultry feel.

"Started with parking. First time at this restaurant so arrived at entrance with early reservation. Went in to ask where to park. I am somewhat handicapped and it was raining, hoped for valet. Took a long time before we could get any help. Was told we could park in public parking lot a little more than a block away or the adjoining hotel around the corner offered valet parking but did not offer discount for the restaurant. Forced to use valet. Seated in back room. Atmosphere seemed fun. Music was AWFUL AND LOUD! Requested twice the have the volume turned down. Waiter was not very friendly. Ordered cocktails, fried Brussels sprouts (very good), rabbit pie, fish and chips, and the famous "Marlowe" burger. The best food item was the chilled English pea salad that came with the burger. Overall only an okay experience."

Cafe Gibraltar is a truly unique restaurant, owned and operated by Chef Jose Luis Ugalde and his wife Liam Durkee, it is a warm and welcoming space where every patron's positive experience is extremely valued. The menu is creative and expertly prepared by Jose Luis. He utilizes organic ingredients, primarily locally grown and raised, and creates dishes that honor their cultural origins, yet showcase his unique vision and artistry. The name Gibraltar is inspired by the Straights of Gibraltar, which are the gateway to the Mediterranean. Jose Luis creates cuisine that represents cultures along the entire rim of the Mediterranean. The seasonal menu may feature dishes from France, Spain, Turkey, Italy, Macedonia, Greece and any of the countries of North Africa. Check out our website for current menus featuring the bounty of our local farms and ranches and the fresh bounty of the sea. Cafe Gibraltar only utilizes fresh seafood, and we often get our fish straight off of the boat.

"Don't miss the Vegan soup! We are omnivores but Cafe Gibralter does the most delicious vegan soup imaginable. On this occasion it was a purée of sunchoke and squash. The flavor of the sunchoke really stood out, instead of being buried in cream. I could have a bowl everyday and never tire of it. Everything is special and delicious."

"Only reservation I could get for Sunday Brunch was 1:45PM. Seated outside. It was okay when we first arrived but began to cool off so we requested the heater near our table be turned on. Ordered our entrees, oysters, appetizers, and Bloody Mary's (which were great). Took awhile for the drinks to arrive. And we were also told they had run out of the entree we ordered so back to the menu to order something else. Table next to us requested the heater be turned off so we were once again left in the cold. Everything was too slow. Food good but not great."

In a delicious mix of cultures, the Yucatán-born chef Mateo Granados has created a unique signature that celebrates rigorously sourced local and sustainable Sonoma ingredients infused with the vibrant regional flavors of his homeland, crafted with classic French finesse, and sparked with playful spirit.

"Have had many great meals from Mateo going back long before he had his brick and mortar restaurant. This occasion brought us to the restaurant for a special dinner paired with Wahaka Mezcal, which I had learned about at a tasting. I was eager to try a food pairing menu paired with Mezcal. Was not disappointed. Everything was delicious. Also incredably reasonable for three courses and the paired cocktails. Hoping for another special pairing!"

"Don't think this restaurant rates the Michelin star is has. It is Beautiful, even the stunning dinner plates (I would have loved to take them home)! Service was everything a restaurant of this caliber should be. Food, unfortunately was not that good. Save your dollars and find somewhere else."

Enveloped in understated elegance and located within the Donald and Maureen Green Music Center, the restaurant is open on all concert evenings and available for hosting events. Exemplary culinary creations are focused on local products with exquisite attention to detail. Our bright and flavorful menu will pull from the bounty of locally grown foods from Sonoma County.
