My husband, daughter and I were visiting some friends in Santa Rosa who took us to La Gare. They have been going there for years and love it. Three of us ordered fish. I ordered halibut and did not like it that much. I usually love halibut, but it was thin and too watery. Our friends ordered fish and said... More

Our visiting relatives wanted to return to La Gare for dinner while visiting last week. Again everyone left the restaurant with satisfied smiles on their faces. La Gare has a wonderful menu, choices for everyone; the main meal comes with delicious mushroom soup and a small dinner salad. We ordered appetizers too but left the desert menu alone. They have...

I went here for dinner while on a business trip. They had great service, and food. It is a block from the Courtyard, and in a very trendy area. I would recommend it.

It was just ok. It wasn't exactly good, but it wasn't really bad either. Our waiter was fantastic, I wish I could remember his name and give him props, he was very attentive and helped us out with wine selection as neither one of us are wine drinkers. The lighting in there is very dim, and the menus were hard... More

Over the past 30 years we've gone to La Gare many times and always considered it a special place. On our latest visit I came away feeling like it is not so special any more. The hostess owner is always pleasant and the staff is well trained in being personable and attentive. I don't even mind the tight tables because... More

Very family style, long tables, friendly staff... Same family has owned it over 30 years.. Everything was delicious and abundant... Appetizers of crab cakes, shrimp, frog legs were perfect... Dinner selections were great.. The desserts were works of Art !

We were a group of six genealogists who literally spent the entire evening at the restaurant!We had every course on the menu and were delighted to find frogs legs and escargot for appetizers. Both were excellent! Soup and salad came with our main courses, and both were very good. The waiter was quite helpful in matching wines for us and... More
