Loved the setting. Tiny restaurant with 15 or so tables. The energy is wonderful with lot's of locals coming and going. Impressed how the beautiful food and presentation arrives at your table from the tiny open kitchen. Our dishes were flavorful. I especially enjoyed the beet salad. My roasted kitchen entree was good but not memorable. Would definitely return to... More

Charming restaurant right off the Sonoma square. We loved everything about it...excellent food (grilled eggplant with proscuitto appy, yum!!), well paced service, nice wine list including a wonderful local rose, and even full, not particularly noisy but with a good energy.

Our experience of an otherwise great meal was somewhat dampened by attitude and setting on a recent visit to the restaurant. Caught in traffic, we called ahead of our reservation time to let the restaurant know we were running late and to give our anticipated ETA. We were told our reservation had already been cancelled (as confirmed on Open Table)... More

We had an early reservation here on a Saturday night. Our waitress came over promptly and from the beginning seemed to be in a hurry. We ordered wine but she wanted to take our food order immediately. We just sat down. Brought our wine very quickly and once again wanted to take our order, which we gave, The appetizers came... More

Had dinner here with another couple. Food was great, wine list was nice, and service was very good. This is a very small restaurant and the lighting was a little bright, and the restaurant was noisy, echoes of voices, etc. don't let that keep you away though as the food certainly offsets this

Great service and food (our hotel recommended them). So good we went there twice. They're just off the central plaza so very easily reachable.

Since both restaurants are on the square in Sonoma, and we ate at both on back to back evenings (Thursday and Friday nights), I wanted to offer a comparison. We had reservations at each, and were seated immediately even though both restaurants were busy. However, both restaurants are small, so as a party of 2, we were crammed between other... More

Cafe La Haye deserves its top ranking for dining options in Sonoma. The food is fresh, innovative and delicious farm-to-table style wine country fare. The wait team is knowledgeable and attentive, and the service is prompt. It's a great dining choice for couples or small groups (of adults--not for kids). If you can get a table ... enjoy.

What a lovely dinner we had here! Small little place tucked a half block off the square. We were seated at a front window, which was very enjoyable. Great service from start to finish. Lovely wine list. Disappointed that they were out of one of their signature dishes, but ordered the pork chop and it was a really good meal.... More

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
