If you long for the days of wait staff that new their business, acted professional, tried to please the customer....and, of course, white linens...look no further. You have found it. Didn't I mention?!?! The food is great too, and special requests may be granted. If you are wondering about trying it, please do. I would be extremely surprised if the... More

La Gare always wins local awards and there are many reasons for that! The food is always great, the atmosphere so welcoming and some of the best steak and prawn meals I have ever had!

I like the food and the servers, it is just the place is too crowded and loud. The tables are all just about 2 .5 ft. from each other. You hear everyone's conversations and they hear yours.

I typically can narrow a menu down to two or three options fairly quickly -- but not here. Should I get the pork schnitzel special, beef wellington, rack of lamb, prawns provencale, sole, coc au vin, or beef tournedos? I ended up choosing the tournedos, and my wife had the coc au vin. We both loved our meals. Mine was... More

We went back to La Gare for Sonoma County Restaurant Week. We had a wonderful dinner. We selected the Restaurant Week menu. We added escargot and it was delicious. It reminded me of an old restaurant in LA called "Sesame Lilly" that had excellent escargot and old French food. We had potato weed soup, salad to start. I had the... More

We have been to La Gare's three times in the past year and each time everything was amazing. The staff is attentive, the food is great and we would recommend La Gare's to everyone. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

Last night was a disaster at La Gare. My family and I had a reservation for four people and we arrived on time. When we walked in we found the lobby packed with waiting guests and there was very little standing room, plus a profound burnt smell in the air. We quickly noticed that people had been waiting for a... More

Based on good reviews on TripAdviser, I made reservations at this restaurant for a family dinner the night before the festivities began for a family destination wedding. It was our only opportunity to dine together before all the larger events. Due to rain and Friday evening traffic, a couple of us were unable to arrive on time, but the host... More

What a pleasure to find this long running, family owned, french resturant in Santa Rosa. A cozy decor, large classic menu, perfect preparation and excellent service from top to bottom. Although we had traditional specialties, the resturant also offers lighter fare for those who are health conscious. But in a resturant where everything is made in-house, you'd be cazy not... More

My wife and I enjoyed an excellent dinner here last week. The food, wine, and service were terrific. It's been quite a while since we ate at a restaurant where soup and salad were included with each entree. I enjoyed the sole with almonds, while my wife had the veal cordon bleu. We had an excellent bottle of vouvray with... More
