  • I’ve eaten at almost every award winning restaurant in Sonoma and Napa and this place is my new very favorite restaurant.
    1.) All four dishes at my table were beyond perfect. Insane pasta!
    2.) The vibe and ambiance is excellent (cool historic mill building with a big, outdoor dog friendly patio with heaters and string lights surrounded by national forest – yes please!)
    3. The service was awesome. Got there 5 minutes prior to our reservation, sat right down and our waiter was spot on. The owners stopped by – super cool people.

    We have already made our next reservation.

  •  The patio area is great to see live music and get your tan on. Cool adirondack chairs and room to dance. The Rasta BBQ is the hot ticket at Twin Oaks!

  • The food was EPIC. I will be dreaming of the warm, home made bread, butternut squash and gnocchi pasta dishes. The scallops, as others have mentioned, are to die for. The desserts are beyond delicious.

    We can’t wait to go back!.

  • Truly special… AMAZING FOOD; AMAZING SERVICE; AMAZING ATMOSPHERE; AMAZING PASTA!!! Four of us went for dinner on a busy Saturday night…Collin was our server who, I can honestly say, was the best! we were made to feel like we were his only guests!! Menu was diverse with lots of choices so we went with Collins suggestions and they were spot on. Scallops were cooked to perfection, gnocchi was seriously best I’ve had and there was a butternut squash pasta dish that was the highlight!! All I remember is that it had an amaretto cookie crumble on top!! Can’t say enough good things… Truly an enjoyable evening!!.
