I have dinner at sonoma grill on a regular basis, its one of my favorite restaurants in langley.I went out for dinner with my girlfriend and another couple on a saturday night.We were greeted at the door by the owner Michael who showed us to our table by the fireplace and informed us of the rib special. Our server was very helpful on helping us choose a bottle of wine.we ordered a few appys we had the prosciutto wrapped scallops,mussels and a caesar for two.The Scallops were nice and tender the mussels were very flavourful, the caesar for two was a great experience since they made it right at our table, which you dont see very often.our entrees arrived shortly after we finished our appys. Two of us had the all you can eat ribs my other friend had a schnitzel and my girlfriend had the stuffed chicken. The ribs were excellent i had two extra orders, my friends schnitzel looked nice and crisp and she said the mushrooms sauce was very tasty. I had a bite of my girlfriends chicken it had great flavours with the brie and apricot sauce. I was too full for dessert but we had ordered the cheesecake and the bananas foster which was another tableside dish and was exciting to watch out server flambe the bananas.Like i had expected it also tasted very good.This was the first time our friends had been to sonoma and were impressed.Definatly a great experience i will be coming back very soon.

I had recently had dinner here with my girlfriend for a special occasion.we shared a plate of the calamari to start which ended up being very tough and rubbery, and the sauce and flowers sprinkled over were just odd.For entrees I ordered the sirloin steak and she ordered the bouillon base. Her dish was ok it was an odd choice since this place doesnt know what kind of cuisine it wants to be, asian, italian, indian, greek, which is it? My steak was cooked to Medium well instead of the Medium rare like i had ordered but i didnt want to anger the server anymore than she already was.The rosemary sauce was extremely over- powering and the garlic was almost raw.I didnt want to risk dessert.Overall this restaurant needs to find its concept to be a decent restaurant.
