My 2nd visit and I was as equally pleased as the first time I went. I ordered off the specials blackboard and my soup, appetizer and main were all delicious. This is a well run and great restaurant in Sonoma. Book it!!

Small restaurant on side street from the Sonoma Square. Couldn't get a reservation for same night (Friday) so we arrived at opening trying our luck. Instead of getting the first come first served seats in front by the kitchen we were seated in the main dining area. Great start. We decided to share the baby romaine salad with bacon, however,...

We are Sonoma virgins, but found this place via some foodie websites and booked a while ago. Just as well, as it was packed out on a Saturday night. Very small, around 25 covers. Short menu supplemented by a few well chosen specials . The food was good...I had fresh oysters, stuffed quail and a wonderful chocolate cake. Great bottle... More

We love Cafe la Haye! it's consistently good with a solid regular menu and wonderful specials every night. Be prepared to make a reservations ahead of time. It's small but well worth making sure you can get in.

Saul continues to run a very fine restaurant with great food and service. Keeping up this level of quality for so many years is really difficult, but he does it. In my book, one of three really fine restaurants in Sonoma.

Very good service and some of the food was amazing! The Ahi Tuna was probably some of the worst I have ever had. Such a disappointment when we were so looking forward to this eating experience. Also, we asked for a later reservation but they told us they were unable to do that, however so many of the tables were... More

We had reservations at this tiny restaurant. Luckily we did since even on a Thursday evening the restaurant was packed. Our services was excellent. We had the specials offered that evening and the cuisine was fresh and very tasty. Portions were adequate to be shared. Although tiny, the atmosphere was warm and comfortable.

An intimate restaurant just East of the town plaza, Cafe La Haye has an outstanding menu and an extraordinary wine list. The food preparation and service is of the highest quality. Dining here is like being invited to an old friend's, even when you are a first timer. This is one place to return again and again, if only to... More

We had great service on a Saturday night. We arrived early for our reservations yet they found us a table. We had been here many years ago and found out that they have been in business for about 20 years so you know they are doing something right. My wife started with the beet salad and I had a wonderful... More
