Very good food

Interesting little bistro. Fairly diverse menu. Everything from my salad with grilled chicken to my friends eggplant were out standing.

Visited here for dinner, went on a Wednesday night so no problem getting a table. I regret volunteering not to be designated driver as the wine list looked amazing! Would definitely recommend the pear bruschetta starter for any cheese fan! Lasagne also excellent.

This is a great restaurant that is open continuously throughout the day and night. The ambience is warm and inviting and the service top notch. This visit we had the frisée, endive salad with a poached egg which was perfectly dressed and one of the best we've had. We also had the spinach salad which was a bit over dressed,... More

I've reviewed the place before, but I rarely come for dinner, often for lunch,and I tend to have a couple of their excellent starters (they're all great, but I very often have the crab cake and the small romaine wedge), or one of their burgers, and wash it down with beer. Last couple of trips, I've sat at a table... More

We arrived to a half full restaurant. We ordered right away and waited 60 minutes for our food. There were 4 of us and 2 had lamb, i had duck and 1 had an asian inspired dish. The meat was all overcooked, with sodas and 1 appetizer we spent $160 and 2 hours. Will not go back with so many... More

Poor service, too cute. Menu shows lack of good ingredients and imagination. OK place for glass of plonk and people watching.

So glad we made reservations for the Thursday evening wine pairing dinner while we were in the area on vacation. It was so much fun to share a meal with several couples from the community. Each course was presented beautifully and paired with a lovely wine. Portions were just right and very delicious. The service was incredible as it was... More

Flavor is one of my go to restaurants in Santa Rosa. It is lovely to sit outside on a beautiful Sonoma County day. Many of the ingredients used are local or organic. The menu is varied and the service is always excellent. They have a wonderful brunch on the weekends as well.

We had the opportunity to go to Flavor Bistro twice in one week and both times we were very impressed. If you are travelling on the 101 North and need a place to stop, it is just a couple of easy minutes off the highway and oh so much better than most road food. The first time we went we... More
