Cafe La Haye
Backpacking2FineDiningThis was a great find in Sonoma. Food, wine list, and ambience were perfect -- one of those comfortable places that just purrs. This is a place we will definitely seek out on a return trip to the area.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food, but Small & PriceyAlthough the food is outstanding and the host is very warm and friendly, I won't be returning to Cafe LeHaye. The portions I felt for the price were exceptionally small (1 day boat scallop + 1 ravioli for I believe $9). With an appetizer and entree, I left feeling unsatisfied. If the restaurant serves reasonable portions for the same price, I would return in a heart beat.6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSonoma locals love Cafe La HayeThe food is absolutely delicious and the service impeccable. I like to take my favorite clients here. The owner is always there to greet the patrons and make sure they have an outstanding experience. This is my favorite restaurant in Sonoma!!!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyable experienceFood, service and atmosphere were all fully acceptable and as anticipated. Cosy setting with a small but varied menu. Would certainly return if back in Sonoma.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dining experienceHad dinner here last Friday night with friends. Had a fantastic dining experience. My summer soup was good, and my salmon entree was the best salmon I've had in a long time. All of us had a great meal!!!5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday CelebrationHad visitors in town who were celebrating a birthday, this restaurant was recommended by a local for a good place to go for a special occasion. And, that it was! We all ordered something different, from quail, filet, sole and pork chops. All of the meals were exquisite...wonderful flavors and just the right portions. Made a reservation (only 3 days in advance)...and when we arrived, we were immediately seated at our table...did not have to wait. Great service...very attentive. Would definitely go back to this restaurant again and recommend it to others.5/30/2013 12:00:00 AMFineFoodLoversExcellent food with lovely presentation.

The wine list was great and the food was impeccable. We started with the strawberry & arugula salad and a bottle of Duckhorn Sauvignon Blanc. We followed that with the Daily Roasted Chicken entree and finished with the chocolate silk cake. Everything was divine. The atmosphere was quaint and the service was fantastic. The place is small so reservations are a must.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best restaurant that weThe best restaurant that we visited during a 2-week trip to the California winelands.

All around great4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMA GemThumbs up for Cafe La Haye in downtown Sonoma. I loved its specialness, warmth and great clean food. The evening was perfect from the moment we entered the door to the last bite. The decor was a cross between being in an art gallery and someone's home. The staff was attentive, the restaurant had a feeling of intimacy, good portions, affordable, nice local wine list, and our evening had a wonderful rhythm to it. Can't wait to return.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistent qualityWe made a reservation at Cafe La Haye as soon as we finalized our travel plans to Sonoma. We had eaten there last year and loved the place.

Every morsel of food was unbelievably delicious, fresh, and beautifully plated.
The arugula salad was heavenly, the shrimp cakes fabulous and the ahi special was superb.
But make sure you save room for dessert...that butterscotch pudding was incredible.
We will return to Cafe La Haye next time we're anywhere near Sonoma and recommend this restaurant to our friends. It was a perfect spot to celebrate our wedding anniversary.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a great experience overall.Had a great experience overall. My only suggestion would be to turn the lights down a little more for more ambiance during the dinner hours. But I will definitely return if I'm in Sonoma again.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband & I had 7:45 reservationMy husband & I had 7:45 reservations the day we arrived. By the time we checked in, we were exhausted! I called Cafe La Haye to see if they would take us sooner. They were so accommodating, friendly & welcoming. We had a wonderful meal, the service was amazing. Great experience...glad we started our trip to Sonoma with Cafe La Haye!3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely, serene spotOur party of four dined for dinner. First courses were Pasta Fagioli with Ham Hocks, Old School Shrimp Cakes. Both excellent. Entrees consisted of Pan Seared Salomon with porcini broth, special of quail with stuffing.Both excellent. Two of our party had the roasted chicken with ricotta gnochi. Chicken was moist, but nothing special. Gnochi was bland; otherwise a higher food rating. Deserts were delicious and for a small intimate restaurant a good wine list with special vintages that are hard to find.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, we reallyExcellent food, we really enjoyed it and would return again. The only issue was that it was very brightly lit--too brightly in my opinion for a dinner hour period. Staff was terrific and the owner was friendly and seemed to care that everyone was satisfied with their experience.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMCafe La Haye combines greatCafe La Haye combines great food, wine and service into a perfect evening.
