Good place for a family meal

We decided not to wait 45 minutes to get into the Russian River Brew Co and wandered along 4th Street to find another eatery. Most were orientated towards drinking/adult fare, but Flavor looked to be more family friendly. We were able to get a table outside, and were promptly served with drinks... read more

Delicious Italian food on the square. Attentive staff. Our group ate here two nights in a row. Recommend the lamb chops and tomato bisque.

Service was very slow. Took 50 minutes for 2 small plates and one entree. Food was okay, not an experience I'd need repeating. Also, they offer you a salad like it comes with your meal, but it doesn't, as I found out when I got the check. Overall disappointing after all the positive reviews.

We went to Flavor because of the recommendation of Best Western staff. The humus appetizer was great, tart desert was OK, pasta entrees were a disappointment. Service was OK. We were seated too close to a couple with the guy seeming to sell his self importance to his table mate, any one in hearing distance and through his telephone for... More

Two locals recommended this restaurant to us for lunch. It is a large restaurant with plenty of seats. There was plenty of choice on the menu including some Asian and Italian dishes, hamburgers and salads. It has an old fashioned atmosphere. There service was slow despite the restaurant not being that full. Kids were catered for. It might depend on... More

I frequent Flavors for the special wine dinners but have never really gone for lunch. It was wonderful. Extensive menu - one menu alone is just for Burgers - pizzas, salads, entrees - even specials. It was less crowded and less noisy for lunch as well. Since we were all females watching our weight, we didn't opt for one of... More

This place is great, a nice neighborhood type place. They have a wine and food pairing on Thursday nights that is a lot of fun. The staff is friendly and atmosphere is pleasant. Not to mention a great meal. What more could you ask?

AS you walk to the front of the restaurant it reminds one of a bistro setting in Paris only a little more landscape versus city-scape. Outdoor tables are your first experience followed by a dark wood paneled indoor seating area. The menu is varied and aimed at a French/American cuisine. Mom and I had the quail and my Step Dad...

I have eaten here many times and love the Linguine Mare and the Friendly Service. It is a wonderful location and the sunny outdoor dining is very enjoyable. The menu has a super variety and the portions are generous.

Love this place. Consistent quality food at reasonable prices. A little noisy inside, so we prefer the patio looking out on courthouse square. Also they have great curb side to-go program. And very large by the glass wine list. Crab cakes are amazing. Muscles appetizer is nice and garlicky. Croque Madam is classic preparation.
