With the arrival of summer, online reservation service Open Table has released its “100 Best Al Fresco Dining Restaurants in America.” Three Sonoma County restaurants made the list! 

The Open Table list highlights restaurants that offer stunning views, regional cuisine and “fabulous outdoor dining experiences.” Generated by regular diners using the reservation service, honorees are determined after analyzing more than five million reviews of more than 20,000 restaurants across the nation. The top 100 list features restaurants in 19 states, with California leading the way (the Golden State has an impressive 45 honorees).

These three Sonoma County restaurants made the list:

Depot Hotel Restaurant, Sonoma (pictured above)
“Rustic Italian cuisine in a historic wine country setting.”

The Restaurant at Russian River Vineyards, Forestville
“Award winning farm to table outdoor dining in an 1890s farmhouse.”

Rustic, Francis’s Favorites, Geyserville
“Stunning vineyard views at Francis Ford Coppola Winery.”

For a next door option, Sam’s Social Club in Calistoga also made the list.
