Always have a good experience here. Good food and wine selection. Friendly efficient accommodating service. Atmosphere is one of fine dining, yet comfortable and casual as well. The restaurant was full, with a good mix of young and old. What was most impressive - it appeared that not ONE of the patrons was on their phone, amazing sight these days.

We have been going here before a local theater performance. The wait staff has been aware of our semi limited time frame and have always kept us on schedule without having us feel rushed. The food is always good, the wine is reasonable, and the price point is acceptable.

Food was very well prepared. Servers were friendly and accommodating. I made and confirmed the reservation, unfortunately the hostess was confused, she confirmed the reservation, but didn’t have a table and didn’t seem to care! We We’re put on a waiting list! Half of our party left and the remaining had to set with other friends . She didn’t apologize or even offer a complimentary glass of wine! It was embarrassing.

I had the filet which was perfectly med-rare and very tender. My wife had what she described "as the best soul almondine that she has ever had"! La Gare has a fantastic selection of wines and we sampled some really nice ports for dessert!

This restaurant is a gem! The food is amazing, the wine list is highbrow and the ambiance is romantic (candlelit)! We weren’t expecting to be wowed but this restaurant knocked our socks off! We will make the 90 minute drive in from San Francisco and will be back again, again and again!

Merci beaucoup Keith! Vous êtes très gentil! A la prochaine fois!

Le Gare located near Old Redwood Square in Santa Rosa is a real find. Charming and good food at a terrific price! Everything on the menu looked good. If you order an entree it comes with soup and salad which is a terrific value and delicious! Wine was reasonably priced and if you go on Mondays, corkage is free! That's a real deal! Within close walking distance from the Hyatt and the Marriott, Le Gare is filled with locals too. We'll be back too!

We have a wonderful dinner at La Gare recently. As always the food and service were excellent. We always enjoy that dinner entrees come with a small soup AND salad.

They need to get more comfortable chairs and seating in the booths. Even cushions would be an improvement.

My husband and I usually go to La Gare for special occasions. Anniversary, birthdays. This happened to be his birthday, plus restaurant week. Our waiter, David, was fabulous! We enjoyed his service very much. Not too much service, but just enough. I wish La Gare had a bigger dining room. It always feels like we are right on top of our neighbors.
Great food, also!

The food was excellent and the staff was very welcoming and friendly. The dining area was packed and tables quite close together due to it being restaurant week. Because of that it would have been less awkward for my 95 year old mother if the person showing us to our table had carried Mom’s glass of wine to the table for her.
