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 glove 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.

We started coming to LaSalette 15 or 17 years ago and when ever in Sonoma we always dine there. Such a nice break from all the Italian style restaurants in the area.
The next question on this survey is "Would you recommend LaSalette Restaurant to a friend?" ..... of course we would !!!!!!!!!

We didn’t get to finish our meal because they served my wife a dish that had been prepared with flour after we confirmed many times throughout the meal that they would be able to accommodate her allergy. Not recommended for celiac or anyone else with severe food allergies.

Excellent food. The octopus, pork belly and cod cake appetizers were excellent. We shared an entree that was a special - corvina. Also, excellent. Please do order the sangria as that was very good. We plan to visit a few more times.

My wife and I shared the Heirloom Tomato Salad, she had the Caldeirada for dinner, and I ordered the Feijoada Completa. The food was quite delicious, though the portion size for the feijoada was a little bit small. Our server was great -- very friendly and helpful. We arrived a bit early for our reservation, which seemed to throw the hostess a bit. But overall she was also nice. Most of the wine we had was excellent, too, except for the first red in my wife's Portuguese wine flight, which oddly tasted like a white (not that there's anything wrong with white wines, but this white-like red just wasn't very good).

Overall, I would recommend LaSalette. While several of the places I've eaten in Sonoma have either been overpriced or underwhelming (or both), our meal at LaSalette was quite good and reasonably priced.

Five friends together for a belated birthday lunch enjoyed the lovely ambiance of LaSalette's outdoor patio...Isabel was our very kind and courteous server, there when we needed her and leaving us to catch up during a 2.5 hour lunch! Had the fish of the day, seabass, which was a bit over cooked, over a lovely shredded kale, fresh corn salad...The scallop appetizer was the hit of the lunch, beautifully barely saute'd over a Japanese sweet potato mixture with a bit of heat. Will have this appetizer as
a lunch the next time. Husband's heirloom tomato salad with St. George cheese was
fantastic, he said...Have been dining at LaSalette since the wonderful chef first opened a restaurant in the 1990's at another location, and it is always a wonderful treat!

As usual, your varied Portuguese menu held many solid choices. The caldo verde made a great start, like coming home. Octopus is always a favorite of ours, and this one was prepared perfectly. The sea bass special was prepared gently, with a range of flavors that did not overpower the delicacy of the fish.

My wife and I dined here on the final day of our 12 day trip to wine country. This was the icing on the cake of a wonderful trip to Sonoma and Napa Valley. We started out with a great glass of Portuguese white wine from Douro. A nice break from the Napa wines all week. The salad we shared had a nice fresh acidic dressing with gorgeous mushrooms. I had the Fisherman’s stew. The fresh fish and broth to this dish was extraordinary on so many levels. A great layer of flavors. My wife had the Mac and cheese with chorizo sausage and a side of grilled corn. The corn was full of flavor. For dessert we shared a chocolate mousse to die for. I of course couldn’t resist the port flight. I think that anyone who gives a negative review to this restaurant has no idea about good quality food. I can’t wait to go back and try the pork and clams.

We celebrated a big birthday here and it was a great choice! The menu is interesting and the food was tasty (for the most part - the Pork & Clam was a bit salty). The servers were very accommodating of our special requests - changing to a different table, using our own table decorations, and even bringing our own cake! They waited patiently through our dining and extra activities. The ambience and location were fitting for the occasion as well. Since we had 5 people, gratuity was automatically added as stated in their policy, but they highlighted it on the bill so it'd be easy to notice - a thoughtful gesture! Thank you for contributing to a memorable evening. We look forward to coming back.
