Always a good meal here! Not very private seating... you need to be comfortable sitting close to tables next to you. Servers are nice and drinks are good. It's a good upbeat environment!

Our meal was really good and the service was outstanding. The staff was friendly and attentive without being a nuisance. A little difficult to find due to construction but well worth the inconvenience. We ate off the menu but the specials available later in the week paired food with wine. These looked delicious and appeared to be incredible values! If... More

Flavor Bistro closed permanently as of November 16 2016. After 12 years they have closed their doors in Santa Rosa. Hopefully they will open in another location that isn't plagued by a long-term city construction project!?

We went for a lunch on a Sat., wanting to try out more dining options in Santa Rosa, where we are new residents. This restaurant offers options which reflect the heritage & culture of Sonoma County, including Italian, Mexican and of course many wines. I had a poached egg on puff pastry (another option was to have the egg scrambled),... More

Five courses, seven wines and communal dining made for great conversation and great tips for the rest of our visit. The food was very good, not great. The wine pairings were OK, not very sophisticated. But the price was only $35.00 per person and a bargain that you don't often see. We had smoked salmon with warm onion flatbread, day... More

This very popular restaurant has a menu that covers just about everyone's tastes; although it lacks a good vegetarian selections. The service is very friendly, the portions generous and everything is tasty. The atmosphere can be noisy at times, but it it is a good place to a large group or small or a date even though I would not... More

My husband and I stopped in for lunch on our way through town. My husband had a pasta and I had a sandwich. Both were very tasty however my side of garlic cheese fries were delivered cold. Our waitress didn't come to check after our meals were delivered so we're left with cold flavor less fries. Nice atmosphere and I... More

This was a great restaurant for lunch in downtown Santa Rosa. The menu was varied (breakfast and lunch options), the food was well prepared and delicious, and the service was very good. They also offered espresso drinks. Note that the "courthouse square" out front is undergoing major renovation so the view out the windows is not very pleasant right now.... More

This is hands down my favorite restaurant in Santa Rosa. The food is always excellent. Everything on the menu has a unique flavor, the Beef Puff pastry, pork chops, pasta, soups,the list goes on and on. The service is outstanding and the prices are reasonable.
