One of the very best restaurants in the Sonoma/Napa area. Four of us shared plates of appetizers: clams, mushrooms, scallops and tuna puttanesca. Each of these was fabulous: tremendous flavors. We also shared a whole turbot that was spectacularly good. The entire evening was exceptional.

About the restaurant
Specializing in elegant but straight-forward Northern Italian cuisine, created from local and seasonal ingredients.

A family-owned business, Cook St. Helena, is a neighborhood establishment through and through that continues to bring people together around fresh, handmade, delicious food in a warm, casual atmosphere. We opened Cook in 2004 to show the locals and tourists alike that food does not need to be complicated to taste great!

Sonoma
About the restaurant
At home amidst the historic buildings surrounding Sonoma's historic plaza, LaSalette Restaurant has earned its reputations as one of the Sonoma Valley's favorite restaurants since its inception in 1998. Chef Manuel Azevedo's signature Cozinha Nova Portuguesa "New Portuguese Cuisine" -celebrates the varied and complex flavors of his native Portuguese homeland while adapting them to the immense offerings of top-quality ingredients from his current home in California. The result is a unique cuisine characterized by familiar Southern European comfort ingredients, exotic seasonings picked from around the globe during hundreds of years of Portuguese expeditionary voyages, and fresh local and seasonal Californian produce. As the success of LaSalette attests, it’s a winning combination for lovers of traditional Portuguese fare and adventurous gourmets alike.

A unique and wonderful experience. Hard to describe because it was so different but we felt like we had entered the coolest home with an amazing chef and fantastic wine selection. Very eclectic and as a non-vegan/vegetarian I didn’t feel like I missed anything at all. And my wife who is vegetarian was enamored with the food, the people and the entire experience. Will definitely be coming back to Sebastopol, particularly to visit this restaurant.

The food was fantastic, Gina as a waitress was wonderful, and we would definitely go back. Great oysters, clams, and mussels. Pricing…well, it’s where California is at these days; tough to dine out for 2 under $200.
