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 Sourthern 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.

I had been to LaSalette several times for dinner during Covid, eating on their lovely patio. This time it was a gathering of three vaccinated couples for lunch. Although it was a very warm day, the staff maneuvered umbrellas until all of us had some shade. The service was pleasant and responsive and accommodated one of our party's need for sugar-free salad dressing.

All but one of us enjoyed a spicy piri piri chicken salad that was delicious as were the fresh rolls. We had a recommended bottle of chilled rose and were happy with the food and the atmosphere. Now that it is getting warmer in the wine country it would be nice to see more salads on the menu, but there were plenty of small-plate choices as well as dinner entrees. This will always be a favorite Sonoma restaurant.

Quite a fun surprise. Made a reservation after not finding one in 3 other restaurants in downtown Sonoma. Was concerned as I had not had this style of cooking. But was really impressed and loved every bite! Starters, main dish, and especially the desert.. all were perfection. And currently I am not drinking alcohol... so the supply of sparkling water and their coffee... served in a French Press... really added to our excellent experience. Highly recommended!

This was my second lunch at La Salette. My daughter and I had a lovely outdoor table, and our food was excellent. I had the fish and chips, which was fresh and the fries were bountiful! My daughter enjoyed the peri peri salad.
The chef sent small croquettes as appetizers and lovely cashew delights as a perfect
ending ,while we finished our wine. Our server and host were professional and attentive....looking forward to a summer dinner at La Salette!

great food, great service. We tried a few Portuguese wine flights. Octopus and scallop appetizers and seabass entree were superb. Server was terrific. Ambience would have been better if we were on the patio but to increase the number of people they could safely seat they also used some space behind a box shrub, so atmosphere wasn't all it could have been. Really lovely dinner, though

Food was exceptional! The octopus and the scallops were on point. Cooked to perfection and served beautifully. The cod cakes and pork belly were really good too.
For the main course we had the branzino which wasn’t on the menu. It was super flavorful. The only thing that was average was the pot roast. The host was really nice and for a Thursday evening, the place was absolutely packed.
Will definitely come back again when we are in Sonoma.

The ambience at LaSalette is extremely pleasant, both inside and on the terrace where we decided to eat. All the staff were friendly, considerate and efficient. The food came quickly, first a pleasant amuse-bouche, then water, wine and bread were served, and our entrees (appetizers in this case) soon appeared. Everything was good, but just missed being superb. Sardines, risotto were well prepared, and the pulled pork sandwich was
generous but overly sauced, so that one t6asted sweetness more than meat. The accompanying salad was excellent. Dessert (Chocolate mousse) was a bit over-complicated, with too many disparate parts (actually, from the menu this seems to be the style of all the desserts). But the level of the food overall was high enough, the the restaurant so pretty and enjoyable, that we'll definitely go back!

The food and service were top notch. We were inside and the acoustics made conversation difficult at times because voices from the larger parties at other tables seemed to echo around the space. It wouldn’t keep me away, however, and I’d go back tomorrow.

Recently had lunch at LaSalette. Ate outside (as seniors we are not going inside at restaurants). The patio had well spaced tables and good shade with umbrellas. The food was great as usual. Staff is attentive, service very good. We will certainly be back as this has been one of our favorite restaurants in wine country.
