“The best organic local food for your buck!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2012

I go to flavor a lot, twice a week usually and with my service dog. The food is incredible and the service is first class! I've tried everything on the menu and it's all mindblowingly good! They have wine paring specials every week if your into that. They cook scallops that just melt in your mouth, I get three every time Im there! You must go!!

“Off the hook food! A place not to miss!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 1, 2012

We received a recommendation from a local wine master at Harvest Moon Winery who said it's a place not to miss! Boy was he ever right! Flavor is in a great spot in downtown Santa Rosa which was easy to find and not difficult to get into. Impressed from minute one when the host answered question on their local brew and brought us out a sample of three of their best.

Great atmosphere surrounded us. Waiter was excellent and explained all the specials which were excellent choices. They have a terrific variety of goods from their pastas to their grill options. All very reasonably priced and the portions are huge! Pastas are handmade. Our table had the lasagna, duck ravioli and the breakfast burger. Great flavors in the duck ravioli, the burger was huge and cooked perfectly and the lasagna had the right blend of cheese, sauce and meat. Table agreed the lasagna was the big hit!

Outstanding selections of desserts and coffees. The coffee comes in a French press and for the true coffee drinker it is a treat. Our table sampled the Chardonnay Pear prepared in a puff pastry with a light creme....delicious and decadent!

Whether you live in the area or are a visitor looking for a great place to eat after touring wine country, like we did, then this spot is the perfect choice for a casual evening. Our compliments to the staff!!!

“Thursday night wine dinners... the BEST!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 29, 2012

We have been to both the Farmhouse Table dinner on Wednesday and the wine dinner on Thursday. We love the Thursday dinner. It is $24.95, 4 courses each with wines and you are offered special pricing on the wines after dinner. The dinner was excellent as were the wines. The company was fun and vibrant - the table seated about 20 people..mostly locals. We enjoyed meeting the locals and enjoyed this excelletnly prepared meal. We also went to the wednesday night Farmhouse Table. Cost $18.95 and served with a red and a white wine. We found this dinner to be rushed. All the food was served at once, albeit very good; not the same ambiance as the Thursday night wine pairing. I can't recommend the Thursday night dinner enough. what a deal for such a dellicious meal. If I lived in Santa Rosa, I would be here every Thursday night!
We have not tried the regular menu but understand that it is excellent. Every time we are in Santa Rosa, we will eat a Flavor bistro!

“Fresh and delicious!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2012

Everything we ordered was very delicious and organic. They had a great wine list and full bottles of wine you could buy and take with you that were reasonable as well! I am used to most places in Santa Rosa having a great beer selection (as they do), but Flavor had an impressive amount of wine to choose from in both red and white.

“Always a great meal and very nice ambiance!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 7, 2012

This was my third time to the restaurant and the food is always delicious and the staff are very nice. It's reasonably priced and has a nice ambiance. We were seated next to the fireplace. I got the pasta pillows which are just that: soft pillow of pasta with both a red and pest sauce, topped with walnut and parmesan. Everyone in our four person party was pleased with the food. We'll definitely go back.
