Sonoma County’s Best (Heated) Outdoor Dining Spots for Winter

Outdoor dining is open again! Here's where to have a good, warming meal.

Before the recent shutdown, Sonoma County restaurants had prepared for outdoor dining through the winter with space heaters, tents and a whole host of other toasty ideas for keeping diners warm. Now that outdoor dining is open again, it’s time to revisit our top picks. Click through the above gallery for details. We’ll continue to update this list with more restaurants throughout the season. Your fave spot not included? Email us with a picture!

Note: Make sure to dress appropriately, because there’s only so much restaurateurs can do with COVID restrictions. We suggest investing in a stadium seat, warm jacket (or a heated vest), some hand-warmers and wool socks. Adventure time!

Editor’s Note: Travel, dining and wine tasting can be complicated right now. Use our inspirational ideas to plan ahead for your next outing, be it this week or next year. If you visit restaurants, wineries, and other businesses during the pandemic, remember to call ahead, make reservations, wear a mask and social distance.
