“THE go to place in Santa Rosa”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

A menu filled with everything you love prepared by a chef who knows how to please. If you're lucky as we were, you will get one of Gilberto's tables. Knowledgeable, professional and loves his job. This was our first time there and met friends for lunch. Had wildly varied entrees, all excellent. Flavor is the perfect name for this friendly and delicious bistro.

“Good food, casual atmosphere”
Reviewed April 15, 2013 via mobile

We stopped here yesterday for a late lunch. We sat outside. They had umbrellas that provided some shade. People were moving their tables after guests left to get in the shade. A little rearranging of the umbrella placement would have fixed the issue. The service and food were both excellent. We both order burgers (seemed to be a special). One with regular fries, one with sweet potato fries. One burger with prawns and one with cheddar and avocado. The iced tea was very good as well. $42 without tip. Portions are large! Overall, a good choice on a beautiful day.

“Perfect Name for This Place”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

We went to Flavor for brunch before heading out wine tasting. I got the Eggs in Puff Pastry. It was awesome! The potatoes that accompanied it was nothing short of fantastic. The service was great as well.

“Nice joint in downtown”
Reviewed March 23, 2013

We took our family here when we visited Santa Rosa-it was there suggestion when we discovered Russian River Pub was booked and backed up.

Flavor has a widely varied menu. Three of us had a shrimp and noodle soup that was very good. One had a majestic burger. And the other two I don't remember. All were satisfied.

Service was good and attentive.

We returned here at the end of the night to buy a bottle of wine as it appears bars can sell goods to go: very handy.

“Consistently Good Food”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

This is our "Go-To" place for consistently good food, whether my husband and I are entertaining, he's taking his mother to lunch, or we just can't think of another restaurant we want to try. The decor is calm and relaxing, indoors and out: Sitting on the front patio on a warm evening, having a great dinner and people-watching, is marvelous. We belong to a group of international travelers who often visit us here in Sonoma County, and since we usually don't know their diet (or diet restrictions), this is where we most often take them. I've never been there with a dinner party that everyone was not able to find something they'd enjoy eating. I've never seen a dish sent back to the kitchen. Service is consistently great, too - the wait staff seems to be almost telepathic, knowing when to check on you and knowing when you want a little privacy. Plus, the wine list gets an "excellent" rating from my husband, who works in the wine industry. So give Flavor Bistro a try...I'm sure you'll wind up coming back for more.
