This tiny restaurant is conveniently located just off the square. Reservations are a must. Based on all the reviews, I was expecting to have the best meal of my life! It was very, very good, but it certainly wasn't all that. The highlight was the Roasted Beet Salad - wow! I also had the quail special, which was flavorful and... More

This restaurant has a European feel to it, small and intimate. The staff all look smart in their white shirts and this adds to the professional feel. The menu is relatively small but is supplemented by a good specials board. This restaurant favours quality over quantity, a novelty for a lot of US restaurants. We choose our starter's and mains...

We looked on trip advisor for reviews to determine where to go. Found the restaurant and made reservations. Owner extremely friendly and got the best table by the window. The food is exceptional. I am extremely picky regarding food. The food burst with flavour. Would highly recommend this restaurant.

I recently visited this restaurant with a large group for a birthday dinner. I had not chosen the restaurant or made the reservation, but had heard of it and was excited to go. Even though this is a very small space, the restaurant was very accommodating to our reservation additions (going from 7 to 9) and sat us immediately. The... More

Great place and even better now with the renovations. I highly recommend getting a reservation. We used the online system and it worked perfectly. For the quality of the food and presentation you think they would charge more.

Cafe La Haye is located just steps from the main square in beautiful Sonoma. It's not a big place, and we were lucky enough to be seated in the front window. The space is subtly decorated and we appreciated the quiet hum throughout. However, the great service and food spoke loudly and with elegance. They have many different types of... More

I believe it takes true talent in the kitchen to make a pork chop or chicken memorable. The chefs at Cafe La Haye do just that. They take a simple food and turn it into magic. It's a small place, but you do not feel rushed or crowded. I highly recommend this one for the food and service. Sonoma is... More

This was our first restaurant during our Sonoma/Napa trip. What a gem! The restaurant is small and quaint; the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable. The food was terrific...the wine, fantastic! We will definitely return.

Just off the main square in Sonoma, we found this little jewel. Sal, the owner, was very accommodating for or party of six. This is a small restaurant, but oh so nice. Very nice wine selections for every price range. We had a pork, lamb and a chicken dish. All were fresh and divine. We shall return.
