Awesome food; but be prepared to wait

We really enjoyed our food here and were seated right away but it was almost 50 minutes from ordering our meal to receiving it. The food was excellent so it was worth the wait and we'll def eat here again.

The food was very good. Everything else, not so much. First of all they insisted on keeping the dooor open which caused a draft so we asked to change tables to be comfortable. The new table was only marginally less drafty. The staff obviously was more interested in having us visible to passers by than our comfort. English was obviously... More

Part of a large group and most very happy with there meals. Specifically, the seafood pasta, pork chops, flatiron steak, and butternut ravioli were raved about. The staff was great - would not be opposed to eating there again.

My daughter graduated from SSU in 2013. We discovered Flavor on our first trip to Santa Rosa in 2009 and ate there every time we visited during her 4-year stay in Rhonert Park. This is one of my favorite restaurants of all time; the food, service and atmosphere are just right. Delicious eggs Benedict, short rib, crab cakes. I love... More

WOW! Where to start- it was busy so we sat at the bar. Right away the bartender greeted us and asked us what we would like to drink. As busy as this place was the service was impeccable. We felt like the only two people in the joint. They have a very wide selection of wines which was cool. The... More

Flavors gives you a lot of choices not only in foods but also size of portions. The same is true for wine pours. The pastas are fresh and full of flavor. The sea food pasta had a large selection of sea foods with a great sauce. A pear salad was a nice added touch to the meal. The restaurant has... More

We just stopped in for a glass of wine in the mid-afternoon. The restaurant was empty. The lady behind the bar was very helpful and gave us a great rose to sip on. The owners are American with French roots we understand. The menu certainly cries out EUROPE ! Can't wait to go back and have dinner

My friend took me to this restaurant because in the past he really enjoyed the place but we both agreed that things have changed... the food was poorly prepared, did not match at all what was advertised on the menu (the ginger-garlic broth neither tasted of garlic or ginger), and had really poor seasoning. We were overwhelmed with the wait... More

I was traveling on business in Santa Rosa and stopped at the flavor Bistro for a quick lunch, enjoyed a flavorful salad with super flavorful grilled shrimp. The size of the dish seemed like a good appetizer, yet priced like a meal. Understand that this is wine country and tourism drives their business, yet it seemed too small for price.... More
