Believe the hype of this place, it’s THAT good. We sat out on the patio and the ambiance is lovely and comfortable. Highly recommend the tasting menu, you get a small portion of several different entrees, we did the 5 course and were stuffed. Each one is better than the next. I have dietary restrictions which they were more than happy to accommodate. I didn’t feel deprived or cheated due to my limitations either. Each dish was a culinary masterpiece, each detail was packed with flavor with absolute perfection. Every bite was savored. Our server, Alexis was fun, attentive and very knowledgeable about all the components on each dish. Their bread is to die for and baked per table. The brioche dessert is decadent and life changing. This was one of the most memorable meal experiences I’ve ever had.

What a fabulous experience. Our dinning experience was top notch. This is not Michelin star rated. . . yet! Better make reservation now because this restaurant is only going to get busier and harder to get into. The food was outstanding; amazing with a beautiful presentation combined with unique recipes that were delectable. We were a table of six celebrating our son's 30th birthday. We started with the scallops and poke. Wow! Meals were steak, halibut and duck; each dish was beautiful and delicious. The service was outstanding! I haven't been treated this well in years! Thank you for making our celebration more than perfect.

Everything was perfect. Issac was our server and he did a great job. Watching the staff clean the tables when a party left was very impressive. A very safe environment. The food was terrific. We had the Day Boat Scallops as an appetizer-highly recommen.

Our experience overall was favorable and the service excellent. Two of us had the halibut which unfortunately was slightly over cooked and a bit dry, yet edible. One in our party had the steak and the other the duck breast, both outstanding entrees. The appetizer scallops (2 large) were fabulous and I would highly recommend it. If it weren’t for the over cooked fish my rating would be outstanding. We will give it another try.

Scallops and duck were excellent. Steak was flavorful, but very tough.
Corn soup was somewhat flavorless. Salad was excellent.
The service was very good-excellent.
When I ate there two months ago, it was excellent in all areas.
I brought guests that had not eaten there. It was a little disappointing.

This was our 2nd time celebrating our wedding anniversary (10 years this year!) with Valette, and our 2nd time doing the chef's tasting menu. Our server started by warmly welcoming us and congratulating us on 10 years of marriage with bubbly on the house, and the food was absolutely perfect. For our previous visit, my husband had had this delectable mac n cheese in his tasting and while they weren't able to make it for him again, the server asked the chef to make something similar and it was just as delicious! My only trouble was not being able to eat all of my dessert because my tummy was so happy. :D Thank you to Valette for a lovely visit!

Valette was wonderful. We had lovely comfortable outdoor seating (the interior of the restaurant is stunning). The tuna poke and beef tartare appetizers were fabulous. The crispy skinned striped bass was absolutely delicious and the duck (with the duck confit!) was the best duck dish we ever had. Service was gracious and excellent. This will be our top choice to return to if/when we return beautiful Sonoma County.

We (my husband and I) had dinner at Valette on August 25th - could not have been a better experience. The staff were professional and VERY friendly and helpful! We could not get a table inside, and I was quite chilly, but they moved us in steps inside, and were SO nice and gracious. And the food was excellent! We had scallops en croute, Roasted Pepper Crusted Alaskan Halibut, and delicious rolls. Loved everything!!

Service was great! Charcuterie was amazing! The steaks not so much. Lacked seasoning. Pork porterhouse was also chewy. The food took a little longer than excepted so we ate it regardless. Didn’t want to send it back and wait some more. The sides were a little boring as well.
