I can’t say enough amazing things about La bodega! The entire experience is like none other. It’s like going to family friends house for dinner with all of your best friends in the room! The food is absolutely fantastic. As is the wine. Do not be intimidated by having to select your menu items before you get there. It’s a little bit daunting, but it makes the experience that much more intimate when you arrive. Also, I am super appreciative as how that practice helps the restaurant reduce waste.  oh and here is an interesting fact. I had ordered for my party of six, and I forgot to tell them that the restaurant is vegetarian and vegan! After we returned home and I mentioned it, I realized no one even realized it!

We were in agreement that this was one of the finest dining experiences that we’ve ever had! Food and the service were exceptional with the bonus of being brought back to the kitchen to meet the chef. Great experience to be remembered for life.

Specializing in elegant but straight-forward Northern Italian cuisine, created from local and seasonal ingredients.

A family-owned business, Cook St. Helena, is a neighborhood establishment through and through that continues to bring people together around fresh, handmade, delicious food in a warm, casual atmosphere. We opened Cook in 2004 to show the locals and tourists alike that food does not need to be complicated to taste great!

About the restaurant
At home amidst the historic buildings surrounding Sonoma's historic plaza, LaSalette Restaurant has earned its reputations as one of the Sonoma Valley's favorite restaurants since its inception in 1998. Chef Manuel Azevedo's signature Cozinha Nova Portuguesa "New Portuguese Cuisine" -celebrates the varied and complex flavors of his native Portuguese homeland while adapting them to the immense offerings of top-quality ingredients from his current home in California. The result is a unique cuisine characterized by familiar Southern European comfort ingredients, exotic seasonings picked from around the globe during hundreds of years of Portuguese expeditionary voyages, and fresh local and seasonal Californian produce. As the success of LaSalette attests, it’s a winning combination for lovers of traditional Portuguese fare and adventurous gourmets alike.

About the restaurant
Located just off Sonoma Plaza, Cafe La Haye offers an appealingly unfussy sophistication. The split-level dining room holds just a dozen or so tables, but its open kitchen, raftered ceiling and walls adorned with modern art create a vibrant energy that’s contagious.
Convivial owner Saul Gropman and chef Jeffrey Lloyd make a formidable team. Lloyd, former executive chef of restaurant Michael Mina, offers a seasonal menu that’s discreet in its complexity, featuring the sort of dishes that seem to get better with each bite.
Gropman’s wine list comprises a modest 100 bottles, but it’s a smart, well-focused selection -

We were pleasantly surprised that the restaurant really did specialize in teas, and not just ones sourced from Japan (though they are our favorite). The fare is more hardy Japanese dishes with Ramen being a specialty. The gyoza were unique with having thin rice "skins" and not the common dough (like pot stickers). Only tried the vegetarian ones and will have to try the pork next time. The entrees were very good but we have to recommend their desserts. The panacotta was EXCEPTIONAL.

About the restaurant
Fume Bistro is a locals neighborhood restaurant, nestled north of downtown Napa, off of HWY 29. We are an American bistro with French, Italian and Mediterranean influences. We like to call our food simple, honest and seasonally correct. To accompany the food, we offer an eclectic wine list which is primarily, but not limited to California wines. Comfortable, friendly service. Attention to detail. Terrific food in a great atmosphere. Come on in, let's eat!

Please note that our covered, heated terrace is open all year and super 'dog friendly' during lunch and brunch hours - during dinner in the colder months we enclose the terrace and it's considered part of the dining room. Please let us know if you have your furry family with you and we will do our best to accommodate. Thank you for your understanding.
