Angèle Restaurant & Bar is an intimate restaurant perched above the Napa River. The 155-seat restaurant is the realization of the Rouas family’s dream to create a refuge that offers delicious French country foods, wines, and occasions for celebration with friends and family. With all-day service within the 80-seat rustic yet elegant dining room and on the 75-seat riverfront terrace, celebration is ongoing. <br /><br />Together the Rouas family have designed an oasis where a European sensibility of food and wine captures the true essence of joie de vivre.

The Duck Club Restaurant and Drake’s Fireside Lounge celebrate Sonoma’s bounty. Your dining experience will be driven by local seasonal availability of sustainably farmed produce, seafood and meats. Chef Jeff Reilly has established close relationships with local organic farmers, ranchers and artisan cheese makers creating a delicious and innovative menu. You will enjoy stunning views of Bodega Bay, the Pacific and beyond. Savor the seasonal offerings, serene views and an authentic culinary experience of our Sonoma Coastal Cuisine.<br /><br />Our beverage program is headed by Sonoma County native Director of Food and Beverage and “Wine Guy” Bill Govan who has longstanding associations with many in the local food, wine and farming communities. We have a full bar and offer wonderful local non-alcoholic options as well. Our wine list features almost exclusively Sonoma County wines as we love to support our neighbors who help make Sonoma County the Tuscany or Provence of America.

Morimoto's signature offerings include Toro Tartare, presented in a shallow wooden tray with condiments including crème fraîche, wasabi, avocado, nori paste, chives, crispy rice, and dashi-soy.

"My husband and I were excited to try the omakase tasting menu($120 each) with wine/sake pairings ($90 each). Some of the dishes were very tasty, others were extremely underwhelming, our surf in turf was inedible. Several dishes were served without any utensils because the service staff were too busy and the food runners seemed not to notice. Our server was polite and obviously knows how to execute, but was so busy her check backs were barely audible as she passed by, hindered further by the absolute roar in the restaurant. Also, the wine pairings are extremely over priced! Sonoma cutrer? Really? Aside from feeling that far too much was spent on a so-so meal, morimoto is simply too busy to execute a tasting menu properly."
