The Depot Hotel Restaurant and Garden was the PERFECT venue for our wedding! We’re so glad we found them, and we cannot recommend them highly enough. The venue itself is absolutely stunning and ... Read more romantic. The food is incredible. The owner, Gia Ghilarducci, makes every step of the process easy. The Depot will absolutely work with you to make your event unique and special. We initially chose the venue not only because it is a charming and romantic spot with excellent food, but because the location is so convenient. As most of our guests were not local, it was so helpful for the wedding and reception to be just a few steps from the Sonoma Plaza. Since the Depot provides all their policies and pricing up front and on-line, planning the wedding long-distance and budgeting effectively was a breeze. While Gia provided ample information on recommended vendors for services the venue does not cover, we were entirely free to use our choice of vendors. We also found a perfect menu that had something for everyone. We went with the Venetian buffet; every dish was absolutely delicious, and Chef Michael Ghilarducci was totally willing to work with us to ensure that any and all dietary restrictions were accommodated. Gia and the rest of her friendly, helpful staff made sure our wedding day was perfect on their end. Everything was set up beautifully, the transitions between the ceremony, cocktail hour, dinner, and dancing went without a hitch, dinner was to die for, and at the end of the night, they packed up everything for us. We had no stress planning the wedding, no stress preparing for the event, and my husband, our families, our guests, and I got to relax and enjoy our special day in the perfect setting. If we had it to do over, we would book the Depot again in a heartbeat!

We just had our wedding 6 days ago and I'm still so in awe of how well it went. We have received tons of compliments on how beautiful the wedding was and how the food and service was excellent. After ... Read more having searched for venues to have our wedding (we visited 2) we found the Depot Hotel Restaurant and it was love. Then we met Gia, the wedding coordinator and I knew it was going to be amazing. It was! The restaurant is intimate and romantic. The food is incredible. Gia is the best and is super helpful and knowledgeable and she and her team executed everything we needed perfectly. Our guests who had lived in and around Sonoma for years had never been to the restaurant and have told us they can't wait to come back on their own for dinner. We can't thank the staff at the Depot Hotel Restaurant enough.

The Depot Hotel is such a beautiful venue. It was perfect for us because with our smaller group we could all be outside in an intimate environment. Gia was excellent at making sure that everything ... Read more went as planned. They really make it a hands off, effortless experience.
