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.

Our experience was, once again, outstanding. Pur table was ready when we arrived and our hostess made us feel very welcome. Our server, Guillaume, was knowledgeable and friendly and he wasted no time getting our beverage orders to us. We took our time with our orders and never felt rushed. The food was superb and was served at a proper temperature. We seldom get out to this area but always make Terrapin Creek one of our stops.

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.

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 -
