Our dinner on Monday of this week was perfect! The waitress was warm, knowledgable and helpful. We visited Santa Rosa for five days after an absence of ten years and were pleasantly surprised by the choices and diversity of the downtown restaurants. We had fond memories of delicious meals at La Gare and hoped we would build more. We were... More

La Gare seems to have the right recipe for making you feel at home. The service is good but not intrusive and the music provides a nice atmosphere without drowning out conversation. We had a great evening there, it felt very special.

We enjoyed a wonderful traditional French meal at La Gare. The escargot, Beef Wellington and Sole Almondine were outstanding! All entrees come with soup and salad....our server Mark was charming! Will definitely return when visiting Santa Rosa again.

We were visiting Santa Rosa and celebrating our anniversary so asked at the Visitors Center for a recommendation. This was it, just around the corner downtown so we made a reservation and were not disappointed. All the meals include soup and Caesar salad. The Caesar salad was one of the best we have had in a long time. The fresh... More

We have been to La Gare several times over the years when visiting the Santa Rosa area. We can't complain about the meals we have had at other restaurants in the area but we like La Gare the best. The service is excellent and you feel like family not just another customer. They have a nice selection of wines by... More

No starters, brought the wine and paid $15 corkage. Shared desert - tab $105 for my wife and I. Not as expensive as some other French Restaurants I know but... More

While we had a difficult time choosing a restaurant in Santa Rosa, we certainly hit a home run when we selected La Gare. The food and service were exceptional. The ambience was nice, but who cares when you can enjoy food this good. I ordered fresh Halibut, which was beyond excellent in a butter-white wine sauce. The entrée came with... More
