OUT OF THE ORDINARY AND SO WORTH A VISIT

Perhaps my expectations were too high, but La Cafe Haye was not quite as good as I had anticipated. Smallish place nicely with white table clothes. Our table for two was big enough for both, but I, sadly, sat facing the wall. More time to look at my beautiful wife. We started with a kir royale which was delicious and... More

My husband and I regularly eat at this gem of a restaurant. The service is always excellent and friendly. The food is just fresh delicious and truly California wine country cuisine. This is in my opinion the best restaurant in the town of Sonoma. There are many good restaurants it's just that this one stands above.

My wife and I loved this place! A very friendly, laid-back atmosphere with attentive service and delicious food. The place is tiny...and the kitchen even tinier, but that somehow made it seem more intimate and private, though not pretentious at all. My wife enjoyed her soup and beet salad (she wasn't very hungry...but she was not disappointed with her choices).... More

Cafe La Haye is a fine restaurant that is consistantly good. A bit expensive, but rises to the occasion. Nice ambiance in a small location. Saul the owner is very accomodating and greatful for the business. Corkage fee too high-$25 but they will waive if you order another bottle of wine. Salmon was delicious, perfectly cooked. Veggies are extra and... More

Cafe La Haye is a small restaurant offering an intimate setting and fine dining. The meals were the best we had during our stay in Sonoma. After eating my main course, I confessed to my family sitting at the table that if I were home, I'd lick my plate....it was that good! First bite and you'll be sighing and saying... More

We visited Cafe LA Haye on Friday evening. Absolutely wonderful. Service was impeccable. As one would assume, a great wine list however reasonably priced. The food exceeded our expectations. By far our best meal in this trip.

This restaurant was recommended to us and far exceeded our expectations. It is a very small, quaint, comfortable restaurant in the heart of town and it was one of the most amazing meals we have ever had. The mushroom soup was the best soup I have ever had for sure. If you can get a reservation, do not turn it... More

Visited Cafe La Haye twice during our stay in Sonoma. Both times food was creative, tasty, and satisfying. Owner Saul was gracious, wait staff attentive. This local hangout is just the type place we look for while on vacation. Highly recommended from a couple with experience in restaurant business (fine dining). Not to miss!
