Lunch

Good food, great service and nice atmosphere. Expense $$$. It is located downtown so parking garages are good bet for parking, hard to find parking on the street.

We just love going to this place. I love their food. The duck ravioli is awesome. When your there, say hello to your bartenders, Moses and Jorge, they will take good care of you. Your right in downtown Santa Rosa, so many things to do and see.

Had dinner at the Flavor Bistro. Nice cosy restaurant in Santa Rosa. The service was excellent and the food even better. I ordered the day's special which was seafood pasta pastore. The pasta was home made which was really nice and the seafood was fresh and tasty. I would highly recommend this place to everyone.

My husband had gnocci which complimented the sauce perfectly to create some thing really unique and delicious. I had duck breat that was to die for. Simple, fresh and delicious food. The kids ordered off of the children's menu, which was... More

Try The Farmer's Table option. Family style. Seated with folks you most likely haven't met before. Fun games of naming wines. Prizes. Reasonable and really really run. So much food!

Nice seafood, salads, steak. Open spaces indoors and nice seating outdoors. Can get a bit noisy but still a really nice experience. Next to downtown which is great to walk around after a meal.

Went with the group from work for a Christmas lunch. Excellent and quick service and even though they were busy, we had a nice relaxed lunch. The fun atmosphere made it a great place to enjoy the food. Entree choices are many and varied. Everyone seemed to very much enjoy their choices, included the Croque Madame, Flat Iron Sandwich, Spicy... More

The restaurant is noisy and crowded but the food is excellent! Starts with a nice focaccia bread with some olive oil and balsamic for dipping. I had a romaine wedge salad which was very good, friend had the spinach salad that was equally as good, then split an order of risotto and butternut squash raviolis with a friend. Both were... More

Flavor Bistro is really a great place to meet for lunch. You can sit outside if the weather is nice or inside at a cozy table or booth. The waitstaff is excellent and there are really great sandwich selections or pastas as well. Full bar and great wine list! Reasonably priced as well.
