This was an anniversary occasion for us and the whole evening was outstanding. It had been a few years since we were last there but remembered how good the food was and we were not disappointed. We had a great waiter and that only improved the evening. Yes it was that good.
The food, service and ambiance is terrific!
ALWAYS SO WONDERFUL
FOOD ALWAYS SO DELICIOUS
First time In Santa Rosa.... it was nice to finally be out to eat. This was a business meal... but it was intimate and a great experience. The staff was great
Never disappoints! This place should be at the top of everyone’s list.
Excellent service. Good value for the food, entree includes soup & salad plus rice and vegetables with the mains. The outside seating is really nice for those that don’t want to eat inside. Recommend!!
Waited long time to be seated. Friendly but slow service. Food not worth the price.
Its a treat for my son who is moving to San Antonio. We were all happy because the food were delicious, the servers were very attentive, checking on our table quite often. The wait was not very long considering that the place was full. Will definitely recommend this place to my friends.
Great as always in every way! 🫒
Flavor was very good. Great wine and dessert. Steak was very undercooked.
Wonderful dinner with very professional service. Our gluten-free guest was tickled by the extent of the gluten-free entres. Overall excellent dinner. Very loud in the courtyeard; that could have been 20% lower. My only "nit".
It was busy and our waitress was clearly feeling overloaded. When we ordered the cherries jubilee she was clearly frustrated and told us we would have to wait.
We canceled the order and ordered another dessert but it was not what we really wanted.
Otherwise everything else was good.
We will return another time and hopefully be able to get the cherries!
Very friendly, great service, exceptional food! Would definitely eat here again!
One of the best value meals I have ever had. The incredible service, amazing variety of fantastically French food, and the homey ambiance all at an incredible price for California made this an A+ experience. I would recommend the restaurant to anyone who wants a classic meal prepared flawlessly and with service so good and personal you feel right at home!
Came here for my boyfriend’s birthday. It was our first time here and honestly I had never noticed the restaurant before. When we got there, nobody seemed to be at the podium to greet us and we were standing around for some time until the host came. She didn’t ask if we had a reservation nor did she seem like she had been waiting for us when we told her our name. It was a little disappointing because I’ve been a host before and I’m always cautions of the parties coming in for the night, checking for allergies and seating preferences ect.
The inside did seem a bit crowded and the tables didn’t seem to be socially distanced at all. Luckily for us, we sat outside! The seating in the patio was much more distanced, which definitely put us at ease.
When we sat, it took some time for us to get waters and bread, but our wine arrived quickly after we had ordered it.
I didn’t catch our server’s name but he definitely made our night better. He was very helpful and knowledgeable, which was great because we had a lot of questions.
For appetizers, we were given a potato and leek soup which was very tasty as well as the house salad that we definitely enjoyed! The bread was a little harder than I would have liked but still delicious. The appetizers were spread out nicely so we didn’t feel too full right away.
I had the rigatoni which was nothing out of the ordinary, but I guess there’s not much you can do with pasta. He had the beef Wellington which he rated a 10/10. It was so good that he almost cried! I had some of the potatoes from his beef Wellington, which were perfectly cooked and crispy on the outside.
For dessert we had the chocolate dome. The presentation was beautiful and the taste was amazing! Not too sweet but very satisfying.
Overall, I was very impressed by the menu and the atmosphere, and I would love to dine here again.
Had a date with my fiancé at La Gare. We had a reservation and as soon as we sat the server told us we had to hurry before the kitchen closed. She continued to be rude, abrasive and not considerate for our questions. It was only when she saw our bill climb closer to $500 did she start to try to be more friendly. Their prized French onion soup was nothing more than bland broth with croutons and gruyere. The Wellington was ordered medium rare and showed up completely tough and brown throughout closer to a well done. Both dishes I am sure would be an embarrassment to the Praplan’s if the knew it left their kitchen. The sole dish had character, pate and escargot was delightful and the best in show dish of the night was the rack of lamb which offered a beautiful herbal delight across the tastebuds. The alley ambiance seemed to transform downtown Santa Rosa to an off alley of The French alpines. May try again on the next visit to town but with so many other excellent culinary options available it will be a hard no for awhile.
What a magical way to celebrate our wedding anniversary. La Gare is always our first choice for celebrating special events.
During April 2020, most places were closed and we weren’t able to celebrate our 5-year anniversary. So being able to eat outside in their beautiful outdoor seating was such a treat. The food was amazing and I felt like I was transported to France or somewhere outside of Sonoma County. We had such a great experience and I hope they keep the outdoor seating for good, as I love the option on a nice evening.
Thank you Jackie and La Gare staff for making our much anticipated anniversary celebration so special!
Wonderful neighborhood gem serving classic French dinners. Staff and owner were grand.
My experience at LaGare was wonderful! It’s like going to a friends home! I’ve been going to LG for 35 years and it is always top notch. Better yet is the lovely and cozy environment. The staff are always so congenial and helpful. It’s good to be back to my favorite restaurant!
I highly recommend La Garre! The food is super authentic and very delicious. The service is friendly and from the heart. I went to celebrate my birthday and I was treated wonderfully and made my day.
Wonderful food of high quality with an excellent menu of options. We wished we had larger stomachs to eat so much more. We’ll absolutely be back.
We loved the experience, I also appreciated the fact that they were very accommodating with GF options
Great experience! This place has been here for many years for a reason. The food is great and the service is exceptional as well. Will return again soon
Does not honor open table reservation
Went here for our anniversary last night and the food and service was great.
We had reserved a table outside, but were seated inside. We had to wait for our table for 20 minutes, with other groups being seated before us, with no real explanation. Our waiter appeared overwhelmed, which may have had something to do with the hugely overcrowded restaurant and the number of people who had to be served. We understood that service might be a little off as the business opened up properly, but even allowing for that the service was poor. The food was tasty, wines were good. I think it might have been an issue on the first night of a change in tier.
Wonder place to eat
It was wonderful! The food and service was excellent!
Wasn’t sure what to expect with outdoor dining. But the food and atmosphere was ever bit as good as always.
We had an outstanding meal. My guests had forgotten how good the food and service is at this restaurant that has been a staple in Santa Rosa for years
Outdoor dining was romantic. Plenty of social distancing. As always, food was delicious.
We eat here maybe 2 time a year it's alway be great this time not so good. Sorry to say.
We will give it another chance.
I was A BAD DAY I GESS
The service was excellent but the food was only mediocre it was prime rib Wednesday and the prime rib was just OK the baked potato was good the vegetables so so the escargot pretty good
Food and service was terrific for my wife’s birthday. Made it very special.
We had a great dinner there for our Anniversary. Food, service was amazing!
The service was great, but the food was not very fresh. Good bread, good truffle fries. The salad was drowning in dressing and the frog legs were overly seasoned. All in all, the only thing that tasted fresh was the bread.
Extensive menu, lots of gluten free options. Excellent service.
Excellent experience for dinner - food was fantastic and Keith was masterful with service!
We planned a ladies night out since we were visiting my sister who lives in Windsor. It was everything and more. Everyone was so helpful, courteous and fun sense of humor with us.
The specials were Calamari and Salomon. 2 went with the Calamari and my sis had her usual Shrimp in the red sauce. As for me, I shared the Caesar salad for 2 with my daughter(she had the Calamari) and I had your Crab cake w/ rock shrimp appetizer. Delicious.
We all had/ shared some of your tasty desserts. Cherries Jubilee for 2, Key Lime pie and Crème Brule.
Thank you so much for making our evening to special.
This was our first meal out with friends since March 2020. The evening was perfect, the Avenue de La Gare was terrific, and the service and food was beautiful. We could not have chosen a more perfect restaurant to begin the our outside dining experiences.
