This gem in the heart of Sonoma is a true pleaser for foodies. The space though small, with a kitchen even smaller, is cozy and inviting with food so delicious we can't wait to return. We ordered a beef carpaccio appetizer (delicate and tender) served with a bit of pesto spaghetti and fried mozzarella on top. Fresh heirloom tomato salad... More

Recommended by a friend, Cafe Le Haye was first on our list. The food was good, but not without some problems. The pork chop was flavorful but overcooked. The wine was the most surprising - we tried two different wines by the glass and both were awful. In wine country at an expensive small restaurant, we expected great wines.

My husband had the mushroom soup (a special as well) and the work chop. Each dish tasted fresh an full of flavor. The... More

So glad we made recommendations. Fresh ingredients & delish entrees. Before or after dinner you can walk around the town center and shop.

This was a special surprise in an area that does not lack for good food. A welcoming host, great service, and fresh, tasty food. Fish, pasta, sauces, dessert were all so creative but not over done. One of the best meals in California! Would recommend and will definitely return.

After reading the reviews I booked this well in advance of our trip to Sonoma to celebrate my husbands birthday. The menu is limited to start with, and when we arrived for our 8:30 reservation several of the menu items were sold out, which meant we ordered things we would not have tried otherwise tried. The artichoke soup and the... More

Great food and great service - a casual yet elegant dining experience with flawless food and service to match. The locals line up here for dinner so be sure to get a reservation a day or two before you go. I had the Fresh tagliarini pasta, lamb meatballs, spring vegetables, roasted garlic ricotta and spouse had the Duck confit &... More

I chose Cafe La Haye for dinner on my 40th birthday. There weren't any reservations available when I called the night before but after hearing we were from MN, Garrett got us a spot. He was nice enough to stop by and chat with us when he had a moment to. I wasn't sure if it was appropriate to give... More
