We lucked into a winemakers dinner here and enjoyed wonderful local wine (Balletto) paired with a fantastic menu. Since we did not order from a menu I won't go into too much detail but we loved the crab cakes made with yams. We were seated with locals who come here often which I think indicates a high quality restaurant. A... More

This represents the second time I enjoyed a wonderful dinner with friends at La Gare. My friends enjoyed chicken and beef entres and I chose the fish. Wonderful. Absolutely wonderful. The service was amazing again.

Since we moved up to Northern California, I've been wanting to try La Gare because it was a French restaurant. Finally, we made it and I was not disappointed. The atmosphere was French romantic (my definition) and the service was fabulous. I love the attention they gave to all their customers. My husband had the rib eye steak and he... More

I love French cuisine. While Le Gare is cute, has nice atmosphere and good food, it didn't leave a lasting impression for me either. The frog legs were very good as was the escargot. The French onion soup is very forgettable. But....as is known in many French restaurants, the service is slow and slower. It's as if they want you... More

We enjoyed our meal, but quite honestly, as I started this review I couldn't recall what we and I had to look at my notes in my travel diary.....so I would not say the meal was so good that it was memorable. Looking at my notes: Salad was underdressed, mushroom soup had a perfume-y flavor, the rice and fish were... More

A wonderful restaurtant in Santa Rosa, the food is great, service is perfect. It is in an older part of Santa Rosa, but plenty of parking. The resturtant reminds us of a fine resurant in France. Every thing we have had there has been great. Our new favorite dinning spot.

The Service was great! The food, not so good. To celebrate a significant birthday for a family member, two at our table ordered the lobster. I had a taste and could not believe they could serve such poor quality.....Chewy, tough, rubbery. Both orders were of the same quality. We did update the hostess regarding the terrible quality, when she asked... More

We really enjoyed dinner at La Gare last Friday. It is a pleasant, old school restaurant; where both soup and salad come with every entree. They cheerfully honored a very old gift certificate that I recently found in the back of a drawer. The potato leek soup and the green salad were very nice. My Filet of Sole Almondine was... More

Excellent food and service. Got in early before the rush. Well priced. Staff at tentative and properly trained. Used trip advisor for reservation and it booked me a week ahead of my desired time. The facility did not have my reservation but was able to take care of me. Well worth the trip to Santa Rosa

LaGare has consistently been one of the best restaurants in the area. Jeff Cox, our local "restaurant" reviewer did not rate it highly but I generally disregard his opinions. The food is excellent, wait staff wonderful and the owners are great. We have been there many times and always go for a special occasion.
