La Casa is the best casual, authentic Mexican in Sonoma. We go there every week, often multiple times. Great for groups and families. Amazing staff and great food. THE best margaritas you can get. Just be careful not to drink TOO many. ;)

Amazing service, already knew the food would be outstanding. Our server, Roberto, always showed up at the right time. The back up staff made sure we had water and fulfilled any other request. Doubled Roberto's tip as well deserved.

Great Happy Hour selections, beverages and food.

I have enjoyed La Casa many times over the years, but this visit was not a pleasureable one as a group of very noisy women were seated near us. Groups like that should be able to yell and scream while others try to have a conversation or relax while they dine. I was disappointed that the management did nothing to curb their rowdiness.

Good food and service. Excellent salsa and guacamole. Whole jalapeno pepper they served with the meal was unbearably HOT!! Carne Asada was a little tough to cut but cooked perfectly.

I cannot give 5 stars as it was so loud, we couldn’t carry on a conversation with our party. We went to eat with friends we hadn’t seen in years. La Casa was their choice. It was not very busy, yet another group of 5 got seated right next to us. They were so loud, we could not hear ourselves and left soon after we finished, although we would have liked to have visited a little more. I do have to say, the margaritas were good and the food was very good. Next time, I will request to not sit in the middle of the room.

Delicious food, lots of options, including gluten free choices and a nice selection of wines offered by the glass. Good for nut allergy sufferers as nothing on the menu contains nuts. Very generous portions. Great service - welcoming, attentive & efficient. It was a little quiet later on (9pm onwards) so for a better atmosphere it might be best to book earlier. Brilliant value.

We brought out of town friends here for a nice gathering and lunch. The food was outstanding!
Everybody raved and said it was the best they had ever had. The downside for us was the noise level, it was so noisy w could barely talk to each other. We wish the hostess would have offered outdoor seating to us - we noticed on the way out the patio seating was nice and would have much preferred it. We will ask for that next time. It might be quieter on a weekday too, as the inside seating seemed to be large groups and families maybe having Sunday lunch.
We will definitely be back - outstanding food and service!

We were out and about with friends and wanted something casual. We shared the sampler plate (delish) and nachos. We will eat here again! Service was polite and our waiter checked in enough times to make sure everything was good and drinks were refilled. We sat on the patio in back and it was lovely.

The chips and salsa were great. The steak fajitas..... not so much. The meat was swimming in oily water. Very little flavor and cold. Definitely not sizzling fajitas. And we don't mind noise, but this is not the place to go if you plan on conversation.

We came for lunch on a Sunday and the place was half empty, so there was no noise, service was fast and we felt very comfortable. Kids menu was ok and the burger they received looked dull. However, our portions were very big and very tasty. Their homemade nachos and salsa are very good and being refilled until you ask them to stop. Overall, good value for your money.

There were three of us. Service was slow. When Tyson of the dishes finally arrived they were both Under cooked and needed to be sent back. This restaurant specializes in Mexican food. Being in California we thought we would picked a winner. We did not.

We were celebrating my mother’s birthday and we did get a good table next to the window, with a view of the Mission . Unfortunately, the food and margaritas were not very good. We shared the paella and we found it very bland and the maragaritas tasted like lemonade.
The service was attentive. I would not go back to this restaurant

Nice happy hour menu. Moved into the main dining room and there were a few problems. Gal came over with water right after we were seated and we said yes when she asked if we wants chips and salsa, but they never came. Waiter then took our order and when food arrived, side dish of veggies were never brought as ordered. Not very attentive after food served, water glasses were left empty. Food was delicious i have to say. Restaurant wasn't overly busy, there were some empty tables so not sure what happened.

We were disappointed in La Casa. We expected better Mexican food in Sonoma. My chicken enchilada was flavorless and the salsa was very bland. My husband’s burrito was huge but not as good as we get back in the Midwest. On the plus side, the staff was friendly and the service was great.
