    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 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.

    I have officiated several weddings at Depot Hotel Restaurant and Garden and it has become one of my favorite venues. Gia, the event coordinator, is friendly and fun. She conducts the rehearsal and makes everything go smoothly. The outdoor, garden setting is perfect for the ceremony as well as the reception and the food is "to die for". I highly recommend this venue.

    I love officiating weddings at this venue! I especially appreciate the views and memorable sites available to couples for their Wedding Ceremony. The wedding facilitators ("Gia" and team!) here at Depot Hotel are consistent in their pursuit of achieving the Wedding Day goals they establish with and for their clients. In short, they are reliable and completely committed to the highest level of customer satisfaction. You won't be disappointed! Be sure to mention that "RevDrJoe".com referred you!

    Gia and her staff at The Depot Hotel Restaurant and Garden are a wonderful group to work with. Besides having it all in one place, ceremony and reception site with catering etc., you have Gia and her pleasant and helpful staff taking care of everything for you. In my many years of DJ'ing weddings The Depot is one of the only places I am treated like a partner in the success of your event and not just another outside vendor. Gia knows that we are all there for the same reason, to make your special day a success. For a local or destination wedding in the Sonoma wine country you should check out The Depot.
