    I'd vote for Harvest Moon Cafe, although the ambiance may or may not meet your definition of 'nice'. Great food, definitely. They do have a patio that would definitely be nice in good weather. Here is my fairly recent report:

    I like Della Santina well enough, but don't find it compelling; I'd call it good but not great and the atmosphere is pleasant but not memorable. Haven't yet made it to Cafe la Haye, but I believe they have had some recent chef or management changes.

      I agree with the sentiment on Della Santina. What about the patio at Girl & the Fig? I just got back from Sonoma - weather up there is beautiful, eating on the patio should be perfect!

      I've had half-a-dozen meals at Della Santina and half were great and the other half, quite mediocre = too inconsistent. My fav in Sonoma is The General's Daughter; stunning food, great ambience (restored Victorian), and perfect service.
