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.

Perfect spot for my birthday dinner. I appreciated how careful they were with masks, gloves and sanitizing. We ate outside and it was lovely. I am still not ready to eat indoors at a restaurant, and these folks do a great job of keeping their staff and customers safe. Now, about the food! It is amazing! Every bite is delicious. The chef/owner is Portuguese, specifically from the Azores. The food reflects his heritage. The seasonings are unique and perfectly paired with each dish. My husband had the special whole branzino. He loved it. He talked about how good it was the next day! While fish presentation and the tenderness and flavor was exceptional. I had beef short ribs. Fall off the bone tender (except there was no bone), with a sauce that was delicious. My daughter had the fish stew and loved it. We each thought we had the best dinner at the table. Small plates were equally as good. Smoked octopus-so good. The scallops were delicious. I wanted to pick up the plate and lick the sauce off. We had no room for dessert, so we must go back. This is one place you must try!

We loved everything about LaSallete. The food was incredible and presentation was beautiful. Service was great and it was overall a great dining experience. This was our last dinner of our vacation and we were glad we chose to dine here.

A great discovery for us. Surprisingly fresh choices away from the beaten path of culinary choices in Sonoma.
Loved it and highly recommend it.

This is a go-to for us every time we visit Sonoma. There are very few elite Portuguese restaurants around, and this is one of the best and most consistent.

We had lunch in their (Pandemic required) patio, three of us. The food and wine were lovely, particularly the Caldo, the national soup which in the peasant version is a hearty white bean and kale soup. Their version is a puree, with kale just the garnish. A lovely soup.

The piri-piri chicken salad was refreshingly cold with hits of spice.

Six of us went back the next night for dinner. It was crowded, and social distancing was not possible, but the rest of the care was outstanding. This meal was extremely gourmet, without an unsatisfactory dish on the menu.

I love this restaurant. The bad thing is that I always order the same things! Where else can you get real, fresh sardines? The first plate with scallops is so wonderful!

next time I shall make a DEEp effort to order some other things. I have been going to LaSalette for years. Everyone I bring - loves it!

Inventive (but well-conceived) cuisine. Very good wine list. Friendly, competent service.

I look forward to dining indoors when the Covidian Age ends.

Seafood heaven. Outdoor seating only because big Covid but it was nice during the evening. My favorite appetizer was the Oven Roasted Octopus. But the Day Boat Scallops and Cod Cakes were delicious. The main dishes: Pork and Clams - pork was super tender. The traditional casserole did not skimp on the cod. I loved that all desserts were a trio - we went with the traditional trio. Will definitely be returning.

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary when visiting Sonoma.
The food was excellent with dishes we don’t find very often and with an authentic Portugués flair.
However the service was not up to par in an establishment like this, more like a diner where the details were left out and not very attentive.
However the food was so good that we would still revisit.

Portions are very small for the price. I ordered the fish stew and was told by staff it was robust.....more like a broth with small mussells (8),tiny clams (6) 1 scallop and 3 medium shrimp .....all in the shell except for the scallop.....more potato than anything else. Pricey for 29$....also Very Bland! We ordered heirloom tomato salad, polenta, and appetizer scallops. Scallops (2) were different than what I expected, but cooked to perfection. I am not sure I would eat there again as 3/4 items were sub par. I know it is a popular place and apparently is for someone who has a different palate than I.

LaSalette is our go-to lunch or dinner destination any time we're in downtown Sonoma. Simply great food up and down the menu at a price that doesn't have you clutching your wallet. The Portuguese fisherman's stew, the fish, the meats, the Portuguese version of paella, the deserts, the appetizers and even the luscious dinner rolls are spectacular. Always hospitable service in a lovely quiet atmosphere. Just a great establishment that deserves plaudits.

Excellent food and service. It was very hot for dinning outdoors, maybe adding a fan or an outdoor misting would have been perfect.

This has always been a favorite stop for us and our experience today keeps them at the top of our list. Outside seating has always been our choice here. We started with the gazpacho which was a puréed version. Very flavorful. My wife had the sea bass special and I had the paella with shellfish, sausage, chicken and topped with a delicious scallop. The rice that accompanied this was so flavorful; I regret I haven’t ordered this before. We shared a bottle of the Spann Chardonnay & Viognier blend which was perfect for our meal. The caramel flan was the perfect end to our lunch. The staff is always great here, our server Isabel was delightful. Nice selection of wines, ports and Madeira.

We love fish. Our dinner included the lightest codfish balls one could hope for and octopus with potatoes. The starters were quite large, so we split the sea bass with corn and kale. It was perfect!
The dessert was creme carmel with fruit and nut crust. Itwentndown very fast.
Yes, we ate outside; but we ate early. We were not cold, and the service was really good!
We will be back.

LaSalette has become one of my favorite restaurants here in Sonoma. Always very professionally friendly, excellent food, with appropriate social distancing. It's down a walkway vs on the Plaza sidewalk, so much more soothing. A very comfortable place to enjoy a meal.

The food was so very good. We started with the octopus and pork belly appetizers which were spectacular. We all had different main course. The short ribs were so tender and tasty. The fish stew also had such a depth of flavor. Very Yummy. Our third diner ordered a special - grilled branzino which was also great. We tried a Portuguese white wine, Raza, which was so crisp and flavorful. All in all, a wonderful experience. Highly recommended.
