The minute we walked in Ramekins Culinary School, Events & Inn, we fell in love with it. It had a very intimate, rustic, Italian village feel. We love all the decors and furniture in the property. You get to see the chefs in action as well. The room were we stayed is so well-appointed. Susan who helped as through the wedding process was very accommodating, knowledgeable and responsive to all our endless emails. She went above and beyond making sure we get what we want for our wedding. The food and service was superb. All our guests kept telling how good the food was... From passed hor d'oeuvres to dessert. It was first class! The servers were so courteous and friendly. Right after the ceremony, one server went out to give us own hor d'oeuvres plates while we were having pictures taken and then after the reception, we again have the dessert sampler plate he delivered to our room. The wine was flowing as well. Another surprise we got was a sweet note from them with a bag of gourmet goodies from Ramekins. You could just tell how they value their customers. Also, being in a Sonoma, they are less expensive than the other venues. Don't be afraid to stray away from vineyards because this venue though a culinary school is very lovely and beautiful. *Tons of place to photograph here. They even allowed us to use their adjacent property for our preceremony photos* We strongly recommend Ramekins to anyone getting married who wants one of s kind wedding in a wine country. Excellent excellent job!!!

WOW! Have received so many rave reviews about the food at my wedding and even from my a couple of guests who are professional chefs! We also hosted at Ramekins because of it being indoor/outdoors, close to Sonoma Square, and because of the flexibility they offered- everything we wanted to do for our wedding they could make work. I would highly recommend them for your wedding!

The food was amazing! Every single person mentioned something that they loved about it. I could not get enough of the Ahi tacos. Also, the staff was so attentive. They kept coming up to us to make sure we had what we needed, day of. In the weeks and months before Yvette & Ruby were very responsive. The tasting was one of the most fun days of the planning. I would recommend Ramekins highly to anyone planning any event. And next time we are in town, we plan to try a class. We love this place!

A foodie's dream caterer. Ramekins catered a family style meal at our wedding at Paradise Ridge Winery in Sonoma, and executed an outstanding meal that pleased even our toughest critics (including my husband)! All of our guests commented that the food was the best they've ever had at a wedding and that the presentation was just outstanding. To be honest, after our tasting, we booked Ramekins even before we found a venue. That's how impressed we were with our first impression! They do their job well!
Yvette and Ruby were such a pleasure to work with. Responsive communication, flexible, accommodating, and detail oriented. They coordinated all of our rentals and made the process stress free for us to enjoy our big day.
They are a little higher priced than other caterers in the area, but the quality of the food and their customer service more than make up for it. Highly recommend!

Ramekins Culinary School was the caterer for my daughters recent wedding in Sonoma. Susan, Kristen and Cameron were the people that we worked with and I cannot write enough positive thoughts about this caterer. We used the General's Daughter for our rehearsal dinner and Ramekins was our caterer, which was perfect for our 80 guests that came from around the world. We also used Ramekins as our caterer the next day at a Sonoma winery. The food was served family style, which I highly recommend. The hors' d hours were a treat to behold and would definitely recommend the beet salad. Their staff was professional at all times, and was so comforting that Susan was at both events, to make sure that everything was perfect…and it was. Cameron was constantly checking in with me as he was the banquet manager, to make sure everything was great. He even brought me out my own plate of their delicious beet salad. We had the choice between two caterers, and couldn't have been happier to have chosen Ramekins. Thank you.

We had our wedding at the Ramekins' owned property The General's Daughter, which is an old Victorian house (right next to Ramekins) that before becoming a venue was a restaurant. We were looking for a venue that wasn't too large (a maximum of 70ish guests), had a lot of character and allowed our guests lots of places to dance, drink, chat, etc. We fell in love with the house before meeting the Ramekins staff.

When we sat down with staff at Ramekins, we became even more enamored with the venue. The people here know what they are doing, they are professional and also easygoing and friendly. As for the venue, they offer most of what you need (with the exception of the flowers) and don't nitpick you with upcharges. Everything from the ceremony chairs to the china to the staffing was included in the venue and catering charge. They're also very accommodating, especially as things get a wee bit crazy as the wedding neared.

Then there's the food!! Why am I not leading with the food! Really tasty. We had salmon, filet, tortellini, roasted vegetables. All of this was from local, sustainable sources and just delicious. We served everything family style and some of the tables even ordered seconds of the food due to popular demand.

Our guests were not only raving about the food ... but also the service. It's just a great crew of people taking care of your party. Really impressed by the Ramekins team from the first meeting through to the end of the wedding reception. Everything was simply stellar.

Ramekins catered our wedding at The General's Daughter. The food was exquisite! They pride themselves on using local, fresh, seasonal ingredients, and even have their own garden! There is so much variety and they were helpful in balancing the whole menu, from the passed hors d'oeuvres to the plated entrees. They were also very accommodating of our custom bar requests! During the event, the staff was very kind, efficient and unobtrusive. We got so many compliments from our guests on the food! Ramekins definitely defines Sonoma-style cuisine! We were blown away!!

Ramekins provided catering for our small wedding at a Sonoma winery. We choose Ramekins for a our caterer because they had the most delicious food - which we knew would impress our most food- snob guests, but was still delicious and accessible enough for the less food-adventurous. The locally grown food (at their own farm) and carefully crafted dishes made me believer! Because of this we were willing to pay a little extra. In addition, because our wedding was small we weren't going to have a planner. Their staff was wonderful at working with me to make that work. They shared their knowledge and expertise to make sure the reception flowed smoothly. They were wonderfully understanding about helping set up additional items for us like placing favors, place cards, arranging the cake table, etc. I would HIGHLY recommend them to any bride!

Excellent in all respects. Responsive and professional through the whole process. Extremely accomodating of every request. Most importantly, the food was amazing! The salad was so fresh that the guests thought it had come from the garden below. People are still talking about the "fish that melts in your mouth". We were so glad we went with "family style" which allowed folks to have plenty of their favorites and to accomodate vegetarians and the like. At the request of the bride and groom they created a gelato bar with amazing flavors and toppings . . . still being discussed from the east coast to the west coast. Service was impeccable! Highly, highly recommend! Exceeded expectations!
