Three of us dined at this lovely bistro. All of our plates were expertly prepared and delicious. Service was efficient and friendly. Between the 3 of us we had the salmon, seafood risotto, pork chop, watermelon and burrata salad. Would not hesitate to return when visiting Sonoma again!

Exceptional food in a small but comfortable dining room. We had an early reservation due to jet lag, and they seemed to really want to move us along at the 1 hour point.

Small restaurant on just off Sonoma Square. Food selection limited but not a problem. Food was well prepared and delicious. Wine list and pricing was customer friendly.
We will return.

Always a wonderful meal! Sol the owner makes sure all customers are well taken care of. The waitstaff is always courteous and knowledgeable and friendly. The bussers are on top of keeping your water full, etc. Love this place!

Fantastic and interesting food. Very attentive service. We were the only occupied table outside so we seemed to get extra care. Not a huge menu but all items selected were great.

We enjoyed a wonderful bisque and a bib salad - both excellent and a delicious risotto with mushrooms. The small menu made sure that each dish got the attention it deserved. Service was superior, helpful and friendly without being intrusive at all. Would definitely go back again and again.

We loved the food. Pork chop was great as was the tuna and beef carpaccio. Got bread upon request but no bread plate. No salt or pepper available. We ordered dessert and decaf. The coffee arrived 10 minutes after we finished our dessert. Timing was disappointing.

Was able to sit outside on a very pleasant September evening and enjoy a tasty salad, juicy flavorful pork chop and luscious glass of pinot! I love this place. Excellent service and consistently delicious food.

But that's truly personal choice.

We had a very nice dinner . While the menu had a small number of choices and specials, everything we ordered was beautifully plated and delicious.
Our starters came out very quickly so we were worried we would be rushed but we were not rushed and the server was very attentive but not intrusive.

Excellent experience. Wanted to try everything on the menu, settled for the beet salad and heirloom tomatoes as starters and risotto and flat iron steak for entrees. Portions were generous, prices were fair. Glass of cabernet paired perfectly with the steak.

Cafe La Haye is a gem of a little restaurant. We've enjoyed going there for years, and its food, service, and attention to the details to create an impeccable dining experience is always consistent and a pleasure to enjoy, time and time and again. Based on the creativeness and quality of every dish, it's clear the owners are hands-on and the chefs take pride in their work. The ever-changing beautiful artwork adorning the interior is always a delight and creates a fun dining atmosphere, pairing nicely with the artful menu offerings.

Everything was excellent, creative and well-prepared. we came in a little early and waited a little while before we were given menus, but that is my only, slightly negative observation.

The quality of the food (even better than I remembered) has now classified Cafe La Haye as one of our favorites.
