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 traditonal Portuguese fare and adventurous gourmets alike.

We are locals and really like La Salette. Our only suggestion is that they change their menu seasonally. The menu basically stays the same, and while delicious, it discourages us from dining there more than once or twice a year.

Our server was outstanding she described all the dishes and wine selections. Not knowing about the different Portuguese wines she allowed us to taste a few before making our selection which paired perfectly with the Fish Sew and Bronzino. The food was delicious very fresh and flavorful. There is nothing I would change about our dining experience. It was perfect

Fish was a little too salty. The traditional beef stew was tasty but had very little meat. The steak was good however it to was a small portion for the money. We probably would not go back.

Our Sunday lunch experience was fine in all regards. Our table was available at the requested time. The food was excellent, and the staff was helpful and attentive and professional. We very much enjoyed our visit, and recommend LaSalette to others without hesitation.

My wife is 100% Portuguese as both her parents came over while in their early twenties. Suffice to say, she knows authentic Portuguese food. La Salette exceeded her expectations as well as the rest of us. Cod Balls were delightful, the entrees were fresh and flavorful and the service was perfect. Highly recommend!

The food was very good but I ordered the full fish and no one said anything to me about the fish bones and I got one stuck in my throat. I thought I would have to go to the hospital but after repeated helpings of bread I was able to move it down, and later, after leaving the restaurant, it finally dislodged. The waitperson should definitely warn customers that is it not deboned and to be very careful as almost every bite if you're not had fish bones.

It is very quiet, could use some nice music in the background to add to the ambience.

Wonderful meal with very good service. I shared the asparagus salad and loved it. The Portuguese seafood stew was a winner as always. One friend had the Portuguese national dish with pork, black beans etc was good but not as good as the seafood dish. Another friend enjoyed the sardines which I tasted but didn’t love. We had a great chocolate desert. We recommend it. We’ll go back again.

The food was very good. The sauces/seasonings elevated and complemented the food without overwhelming. Love the unique seasonings. My halibut was fantastic although a tad over cooked. Scallops, steak, clams and desserts, (flan and sorbet flight) were outstanding. French press coffee was fabulous. Service was 5 *! Loved the Portuguese wine flights and must have sangria!

Have been to LaSalette several times--usually sit outside on a lovely, quiet patio. Its Winter, so we sat inside, fireplace roaring, cozy on a rainy day, big windows, lovely decor, feels like being in Portugal. Authentic cuisine, interpreted wonderfully. Our 45th anniversary. Most others were there for: three friends at an adult birthday gathering; a young couple who just became engaged; three ladies who were enjoying their scallops-for-appetizers; two 30-something women at the bar; a family with an older gentleman who needed a wheel chair sitting comfortably in a private area in the back, which they had requested. At noon on a cold, rainy Saturday in the Winter, it filled up by 12:15 pm. Very popular, but mostly locals were there. When my daughter was in College we took her there and she loved it. Elegant, but still feels very comfortable and the personal attention is warm, not pretentious.

We tried 4 different sections and three desserts and each and every one was perfectly prepared, presented and delicious. Totally exceeded expectations and price to meal value was right where it would be expected.
Clearly will return.

While the restaurant was lovely and the food was overall reasonably good, my particular dish was too salty, and that overshadowed the other tastes in the dish. My husband, on the other hand had a seafood dish that was well prepared and tasty. The prices were on the high side, and for me, the food was not worth the price.
