Amazing menu!

This is the spot just off the Sonoma Plaza for a great dining experience - business meals, romance, or special occasions!

Table ready on time. Service excellent. Food was delicious. Small menu but done right! We even had dessert which was so worth the calories.

We were lucky to get the last seating on OpenTable on a recent trip to Sonoma. For the most part the menu was interesting but short. However, we managed to find some delicious seafood. Our server was pleasant and thorough. The manager/owner was a bit quirky, but I guess holding high standards is probably part of the formula for success... More

On a girls trip to the wine country we lucked out with an impromptu stop at Cafe La Haye. After reading a rave review we called around 5pm on a Friday to see if we could pop in, they graciuosly provided a lovely corner table which I now understand was very lucky- I hear they are booked weeks in advance!...

From the greeting to the exit, La Haye was superb. The owner is hands on, the atmosphere cozy and unpretentious, the fare delectable, and the waitperson was one of the best I have ever had. Do not miss this place, but be sure to reserve early on in your Sonoma stay, as it is always full.

This is a great at small restaurant, the welcome is warm and friendly, the food is delicious and the prices are reasonable. What more can you ask, we will certainly eat here again if we come back to visit this amazing part of the world.

This place is definitely a keeper and my sense is reservations are a must as it is a very small venue. The Saturday night (of Film Festival Week) we were here it was packed by 6:30 pm and may have been thinning out by 8:30 pm. We liked everything, but I believe the pork chop (you are reading this correctly)... More

We visit Wine Country yearly and always return here. The setting is simple and lovely. The service is always warm and welcoming. It always feels like the owner has his hand in every step of the experience. The food is creative and seasonally fresh. Just make sure to reserve early because it is a small space.

Four of us went for dinner and were delighted. To start with, they have an impressive wine list at reasonable prices. Their corkage fee is $20 but after reviewing the wine list ahead of time we decided to go with their wine as it was both great and great value. The menu is small but everything we had from Quail...
