Nino Rabaa has sadly closed this place. I didn't go in as often as I should have, because I did love their French food, especially the charcuterie plate, and their excellent wine list. But a new venture will be opening in the next few months, so check it out.

We had a dog with us and the server brought her a bowl of water on the patio. The food was outstanding. I couldn't decide what I wanted and the server helped me choose and he was right. Delicious meal. It was near closing time and a homeless man was out on the side walk. Our server brought him a... More

The same owners will be opening a new, less expensive non-French restaurant at the same location. No need to read further: This review must contain at least 100 characters.

We were looking for a reasonably priced, unique restaurant (one we hadn't been to) before a Sat. eve. event at the Wells Fargo Center and ended up here. We arrived early (5pm) and the place was not crowded. While we were seated right away, service afterwards was spotty and haphazard. Our waiter was clearly frazzled and seemed to have the... More

We were heading to the Russian River and stopped in Santa Rosa for a late lunch, great place! What first we noticed about this restaurant was the friendly staff, so we decided to stay and have lunch. The crepes are to die for! We had one of the nicest waitress ever, we will be back the next time we are... More

Stopped in for a late-ish dinner, not dissapointed. I had the Prix Fixe dinner - steak frites, a salad and dessert. The steak was perfectly cooked and seasoned, and fries were crispy and not greasy - exactly the way I like them! Desert was fine, not over the top, but not bad. Fair selection of wines by the glass. It... More

Visited with husband and 10 year old daughter for evening dinner. Over the top service style and did not feel genuine. Very quiet (only 3 other patrons) but meal took 45 minutes to arrive. French onion soup (tepid), salmon dish topped with cheese had obviously been sat under hot pass. Believe 'owner' was eating with a "VIP" guest (as we... More

We really enjoyed the meal, the food and the service. The music was a bit louder than we would have liked but that was our only complaint. The wait staff was very attentive. The fish was cooked perfectly. We'll go back.

We stopped by for a quick lunch and ordered their hamburger with truffle aoili sauce and truffle fries and thought it was amazing. The flavor of the beef patty was some of the most impressive hamburger experiences we've had. The bun was also exceptional. The truffle fries were delicious and were devoured quickly. Can't speak for other dishes, but we... More
