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.

Superb cuisine and attentive service. This restaurant never disappoints us.
Their sangria is the perfect aperitif during this warm weather season.

The front of the house betrayed the back of the house. Great menu, excellent food, nice ambiance- horrible service. Had to constantly flag down waitress who was more interested in setting up device for dinner ( we were there at 3pm when reassurance was less than half full) than deriving existing clients. Unfortunate service couldn’t match the food

LaSalette is by far one of the best kept secrets in either the Sonoma or Napa Valleys. Best described as modern and creative takes using distinct Portuguese influences, LaSalette has it all. Supberb service - quaint, picturesque setting near Sonoma Square. A a complete and varied menu, beautifully presented and of the highest quality. Each of our selections were absolutely amazing. My wife and I had lunch but will return for dinner soon. Highly recommend reservations. In my opinion, the quality of LaSalette makes me think that it is like the "French Laundry" of the Sonoma Valley.

Beautiful space, attentive and cheerful staff, and literally the best fish I’ve ever had. I ordered the branzino and it was perfect. Hot and flavorful, soft enough to push off the spine but firm enough to not flake apart. My husband ordered the pot roast and it was glorious as well. The wine of course was delicious and the chocolate dessert and coffee were the perfect digestif. Well done and we’ll be back with everyone we know haha!

In all the years I’ve been coming here I have yet to have a bad meal. The only problem was they need more umbrellas outside. It was a hot day and we were in the sun, that was our only option for a table that was reserved.

The evening and meal started off with the oysters with chorizo butter, and the cod cakes. My wife was born in Angola Africa on a Portuguese colony and fled the revolution in 1975. She raved about the food, and how it reminded her of her mom‘s cooking. If you are a foodie, and enjoy unique presentations and Portuguese cuisine, this is a must on your journey. My grandfather once told me, “adventures in food make your life complete!“ I live by that motto, and You too must stop by this food joint! Opt for the octopus and the sardines! Applaud to chef Manuel for his blend of spice, presentation and culture. Restraint in this day of over-seasoned meals, shine through in every bite. Obrigado!

We had a wonderful meal. The sardine appetizer was great. The green salad was exceptional. For our main dish we selected a grilled whole sea bass that was fantastic. Highly recommend LaSalette

I don’t want to give this restaurant a bad review. The food was excellent and our server was great.

We reserved this over a week in advance for anniversary dinner. We arrived and were told we had to sit outside because that is all that was available. The wind is blowing and it is getting colder and I want my wife to be comfortable. I am also unhappy about eating cold food outside.

I was told by the host how sorry he was and that it is first come first serve. OK that is totally unacceptable, if open table or the restaurant can’t make a distinction between inside and outside dining then they don’t deserve our business. I have been trying to go to restaurants because they have been having a hard time. I am rewarded with paper plates, plastic silverware, cold food, and higher prices.

I am not talking about this dining experience because after waiting 30 minutes I was able to sit inside with my wife and had a delicious meal which we enjoyed very much. Was not happy about waiting 30 minutes after my reservation to get a decent table. So for disrupting my anniversary dinner and almost ruining my evening I am giving you 3 stars but 5 stars for food and table service.

Our new favorite restaurant! We’ve now been twice - consecutive weekends. Once we ate outside the other time inside - the ambiance in both locations was wonderful. And the food is truly exceptional. The last time we went we brought a friend who is from Brazil and even he was super impressed. Highly recommend!

Great food and service the room seemed small to accommodate a party of 6 and still social distance. When coming to the restaurant there is no signage to tell you where it is since it is in an alley, off the beaten path. It was hard to find.
