Depot Hotel Restaurant and Garden





Located on a quiet street one block off the historic Sonoma Plaza, the Depot Hotel Restaurant and Garden is a beautifully restored plum-stone building, one of the landmarks of the lovely "Valley of the Moon" in California's wine country. The sunny light-filled Restaurant features charming "country-inn" style decor in shades of gold and cream. Inside the alluring stone building are dining rooms decorated with Italian china and Venetian tapestries. The entire back wall of the restaurant is glass, opening onto a beautiful Italian garden, which is perfect for a wedding ceremony. This romantic garden has shady flower-filled terraces surrounding a central reflection pool and sparkling fountain. At the end of the garden is an outdoor fireplace, arbor, private bar, and Pergola surrounded by Tuscan-style stucco walls. The professional team at the Depot Hotel enjoys planning unique, personalized weddings that truly reflect the desires and wishes of the bride and groom –- always creating a wedding celebration filled with many happy memories for years to come.
