We loved the ambiance of this restaurant. The age, décor, music and surroundings all added to a very enjoyable evening. The service was excellent. We ordered shrimp cocktail (loaded with baby shrimp), French onion soup (very good), and shared the duck dinner complete with salad and mushroom soup and 3 sides-rice (bland) and vegetable (cooked just right). The duck was... More

My bride and I were on a 4 night mini-vacation in Santa Rosa. We had lived in San Francisco since 1971 and then moved to Marin in 2007. This was my first time staying in Santa Rosa. We stayed in the Railroad Square area in Hotel La Rose and at out every night. La Gare is a block from the... More

We had dinner at La Gare and enjoyed it. It may be old and seem worn out but there is something comfortasble about it. The food was very good, my salmon was delicious and my wife's steak was prepared as ordered, very rare. We enjoyed our dinners and will return.

Take a trip to Europe without leaving Sonoma County! Enjoy a great meal in a traditional European decor with pictures of the Swiss alps adorning the walls. La Gare boasts excellent swiss/french food in old town Santa Rosa. Their signature french onion soup is rich in flavor, but not overpowering. As other reviewers have said, dinner comes with soup and... More

We stay in Santa Rosa when we visit the wine country and we eat at La Gare when we are there. The service is always great and food is tasty and consistently well prepared. When we have had an item we like it is just as good the next time we order it. I don't recall if they have cocktails... More

La Gare is such a fantastic and quaint restaurant. The atmosphere is calm and relaxing and the waitstaff are superb! My boyfriend and I celebrate just about every occasion here and neither of us have ever had a subpar experience. From the hostess to the servers to the bussers, everyone who works there is kind and courteous and really enhances... More

Lovely French restaurant with consistently delicious food and impeccable service. Dinner includes soup, salad, and entree with all the trimmings. Our favorites are filet of beef Wellington and rack of lamb. La Gare has been in business for decades and is our place to go for special occasions - or "just because."

Another small gem in the valley. Had a business dinner here and was not disappointed at all. From excellent knowledgable wait staff and food this is a solid French restaurant that one needs to try. If your staying at the Hyatt or Courtyard, it's a no brainer short walk.

We were two longtime friends out for a evening to catch up with each other. This is a French Place with an extensive menu of favorits! We ordered duck, salmon, and a beef dish. Each meal came with house made soup, salad and then the entree. I can't think of any place that generous with the meal. Our mains were... More
