Food was outstanding, service a bit on the reserved end. Atmosphere the result of COVID so very different, although they did set us aside with much privacy!
Even seated outside, great food, great host and still the same after many years of business.
They continue to maintain their high standards even under the challenging circumstances of the Pandemic restrictions.
Due to COVID-19, the outdoor tables are along Napa St. It was quiet night but there is street traffic. Food was excellent...good wine selection.
Nothing beats a local restaurant that serves consistently outstanding food and where the owner greets you by name. Cafe La Haye used to be our special occasion restaurant, yet the pandemic has made us much more thoughtful about patronizing and supporting the local gems in the town of Sonoma. We enjoy the seasonal menu, personalized attention from the staff, and relaxed outdoor seating. Highly recommend!
Fabulous. The seating, in a doorway nook off the sidewalk, was comfortable and nicely private. Service was just right - attentive, but not overly so, and unrushed. Most importantly, every single dish was superbly prepared. The best, most enjoyable restaurant experience I've had for some time.
Quaint, artsy, and great food! We really enjoyed the food here. Seating is along the street, but they were able to block off some of the street so there is no parking on that side. It makes it feel more like a patio. Nice service too. Clearly a local spot - there were lots of people who knew each other here. :) Thanks!
Wonderful meal on the sidewalk streetside. Traffic noise an unfortunate detractor but there we are. Delicious!!!
We were dining outside due to COVID restrictions. It was a warm night and felt like being in a cafe in Europe. Very good service and food. A lovely experience.
One of the best restaurants in Sonoma. The food is always fantastic, very reasonable wine prices, and just a great experience.
When it's time for dinner out at my favorite restaurant in Sonoma, it's Cafe La Haye. Extremely well run establishment. Incredible consistency. Most delicious food anywhere.
Superb outdoor dining experience. Melissa was the best at explaining the menu, providing great service and having a top notch attitude. Would highly recommend and look forward to returning!
We have dined here several times over the years and the food and service remains outstanding. Unfortunately, due to COVID restrictions we ate outdoors on the sidewalk, which is less than wonderful. That said, we were happy to support the local business in this stressful time.
We eat at Cafe LaHaye several times a year. Now that COVID-19 allows only outside seating, it has been a challenge. The only reason I indicated the noise level I did is because you can’t avoid the occasional noisy car when you are seated outside in the sidewalk. Normally, inside is quite quiet.
We had an awesome risotto with scallops. Cooked perfectly. Our two starters were creative and delicious. And of course, we could not leave without the chocolate torte, so rich and decadent. As always, service was excellent. We highly recommend Cafe LaHaye.
Corn and roasted tomato soup was one of the best things I ate in 10 days in Sonoma/Napa!
Every bite was delicious! The wait staff could not be nicer. What a wonderful escape from the weird world we are enduring.
Best restaurant in Sonoma, perhaps in the North Bay.
Well curated wine list.
Everything was delicious. The fried chicken over Mac and cheese was amazing.
Amazing food, amazing service and staff
I love this place!
I don’t know if it’s COVID or not but there were two tables and two servers and we had poor service. My quail was raw. The chicken dish was good. Cheesecake was good. Think it’s an anomaly with the pandemic, but it wasn’t great.
In a time when every restaurant should try to go
up and beyond for their guests, the Cheif wouldn’t make a side veggie for our daughter (which was simply steamed broccoli, which came with my dinner). If you’re looking for any “special” service, you might look elsewhere. Besides that, the food was very good.
It was a pleasure to dine al fresco and enjoy a fabulous meal. The staff was as always professional and friendly.
Cafe La Haye always has the best salmon dish of any restaurant at which I have eaten. Their chocolate silk cake is also amazing.
We had a great time!
We were excited to eat at a Michelin rated restaurant, but left very underwhelmed. Based on other reviews, I’m hoping this was just an off night for them while operating during a pandemic, but will not go back.
Friendly and attentive staff and great food. Sat at one of the street tables which was just fine except for the occasional too-loud car (which seemed overly abundant in Sonoma).
Food was wonderful. Service was inattentive.
My wife and dined here during the shutdown while visiting from Dallas. service was fantastic, food was stellar, and the desserts - flourless chocolate cake and cheesecake - are not to be missed.
Outdoors on the sidewalk in front of the restaurant. Weather was perfect. Tables were all properly spaced for social distancing. Staff all masked the whole time, as was every guest except when they were eating. Food was wonderful. Bucatini with meatballs. Thick cut pork chop with mashed potatoes was perfectly done. First courses were a delucious tomato soup with melted cheese on top and a just as delicious salad of fresh tomatoes and burrata. A flourless chocolate cake with sea salt was a great finish. All went great with a Merlot from Once & Future Winery that was excellent and very fairly priced. Service was skilled and gracious as always. No doubt that this represents Sonoma at iys very best. Thanks to all for a great first dinner out since March!
Was fine- understandably during Covid was probably not at its best. Thank
Our meal at Cafe La Haye was our favorite of our long weekend vacation in the Sonoma area. Each dish was full of flavor. I love a restaurant that has a limited menu and puts a lot of attention and care in to those select dishes. We especially loved the gluten free dessert. We were surprised at how generous the portions were. Most of all, we felt very safe and distanced while dining here.
One of our most favorite places in Sonoma! Every dish at Cafe La Haye is a delight. The service is impeccable, lovely wine list and fresh, interesting dishes. And don’t forget dessert!
Because of COVID we had to sit outside on sidewalk, but we loved it! Our Server was awesome, food amazing and the evening was beautiful...could not have asked for a better experience except for the fact the cars fly down the street past where you're sitting and eating. Sonoma seriously needs to consider closing down the streets around the square from Thursday to Sunday evening so that nothing happens to the diners eating on the sidwalks...They could even put more tables in the streets if they did something like this. Could be very European! Overall though, we love Saul and this place! Highly recommend! Jaime and Joel
Excellent food and outdoor dining was awesome! All health and safety protocols were in place as well.
We recently discovered Cafe La Haye and its really a great spot. The chicken piccata and the crab cake are both the best around.
Delightful place - sidewalk seating was fun. Service great- knowledgeable and friendly; food fantasic
I really enjoyed dining at Cafe La Haye. Great service and delicious food
Great food, great wine, terrific people and service. My favorite place
Dinner on the sidewalk during these circumstances is the way to go.
Amazing food & wine!
We were thrilled to eat at cafe Le haye! The food was delicious and the service was awesome. We had chicken piccata, tuna, beef carpaccio, Cesar salad, everything was excellent. Lots of shade. Had a fantastic time!
