Had to go back to our favorite restaurant for our anniversary...we were pleasantly surprised that the outdoor dining setup was so beautiful. Ordered our favorite Frito misto, salmon and pork chop entrees...all were delicious. The fritto was light and crispy, shrimp and calamari were so fresh. The salmon was crispy and mashed potato and tomatoes and sauce were delicious and pork chop was so tender and grilled to perfection and potatoes were so good. Focaccia and olive oil were so good. When our appetizer arrived we didn’t get appetizer plates and was not offered pepper for our salmon. Water was filled and we did get checked on. We still love our fave place.

We took 2 guests visiting SF to La Mar for lunch, and we all had a wonderful time! We loved the patio setting, fresh sea breeze, and view overlooking the water. The specialty cocktail was refreshing: Prickly pear Margarita, spicy melon and Mosto Verde Sour. We ordered a variety of small plates to share: the Bandeja Cebichera, Lomo Salltado, Pulpo, Beef Empanada and Arroz con Mariscos. Each dish was creatively presented it was such a joy to look at. We saved room for their famous Tres Leches, ( the best I ever had, my favorite) and the choco- Mariscos. It was a spectacular ending of a fantastic meal!!

Came for lunch between wine tastings, we always love it and the menu was fun and interesting. Food was yummy as always, server was a little lack luster - that was the only thing I wasn’t super pleased with. We got our food everything ran fine it just seems she would’ve rather been somewhere else. We Will be back.

Service was wonderful. We requested a number of changes to the dishes due to allergies and the waiter and chef were able to cater to the needs of our guests plus the food was super delicious. Always a favorite restaurant in Sonoma.

The warm olives, baked goat cheese and especially the butterscotch dessert was among the best I’ve had!
