The General's Daughter restaurant is housed in a restored Victorian house (circa 1864) that belonged to General M.G. Vallejo's daughter. This historic Sonoma landmark offers old world attention to detail, generous hospitality and a relaxed and friendly dining experience. Covered porches and patio are framed by the 100 year old climbing roses. The house was restored by Suzanne Brangham, who also owns Ramekins Culinary School next door that houses a 5 room quaint B&B and a large event center.
Organically grown local produce, fresh meats, fish and Sonoma cheese are the basis of the vibrant dishes.
