Description: Fresh, Inventive Mediterranean and Iberian Cuisine in the heart of the Sonoma Valley Wine Country. Seafood and Portuguese Cuisine are our specialties. We offer a unique variety of fresh local and imported seafood specials daily including whole fish. The seafood selections on our menu are complimented by a variety of meat dishes ranging from the popular Pork Tenderloin stuffed with almonds, olives and figs to the, hard to find, Tripe Porto Style. Many of these dishes come steaming hot out of the wood-burning oven and fill the dining room with the exotic aromas of true Mediterranean cuisine. The menu reflects the commitment of Chef and Owner Manuel Azevedo to creating the unique culinary delights of his native Portugal and its neighbors. LaSalette Restaurant is proudly one of Zagat Surveys top rated restaurants in Sonoma. See our web site for the complete menu and a look inside our dining room, which features an open kitchen and decor that sends you back in time to old Lisbon.

“An excellent welcome prefaced what was a fine dining experience of Portugese specialities.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2011

My companion and I enjoyed our meal and complementary wines at this jewel of a restaurant. Offering small plate Tapas tastings as well as satisfying Mains La Salette provides a wealth of tastes to try. We were particularly pleased with our choices of a shared tomato salad, fillet of Sea Bass and a Portuguese meat stew. We finished with a couple of delicious desserts; a red berry melange on a passion fruit mousse base, and a quartet of home made sorbets and ice creams respectively. The Vintage Port ice cream was stunning and rounded off a delicious meal most appropriately.

“We expected a good experience.....we got a great experience!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2011

Went to LaSalette with my wife and 3 other friends on a beautiful evening....we ordered a variety of food off the menu including the tasting portion....everyone enjoyed their meal plus the Portuguese wine was excellent and worked with all the meals.
The service was very good....not intrusive....but always there........cannot recommend this restaurant enough and look forward to returning.

“One of the best meals we have eaten!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2011

Excellent food; well prepared and presented. Could not improve on the food especially the sausage appetizer. Good wine list. Well priced. Service was a bit abrupt and not really "friendly" but the food compensated!

“A true gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2011

Complete surprise, recommended by a local and we were delighted. We had some small plates of charcuterie and amazing sardines and foie GRAS, perfectly cooked. Would go back again and try some of the signature dishes, the people at the table next to us practically licked their plates clean.

“Hidden Gem! Amazing menu!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 5, 2011

Find this hidden gem just off of Somona town square. The owner (Kimberly Azeevedo) was the most grecious hostess! The menue is full of excellent choices that will surprise your pallet with the tastes of Portugal. Great variety and excellent wine. The Peri Peri sauce was so good we bought a bottle. Lunch or dinner...do not miss this one.
