Located just off Sonoma Plaza, Cafe La Haye offers an appealingly unfussy sophistication. The split-level dining room holds just a dozen or so tables, but its open kitchen, raftered ceiling and walls adorned with modern art create a vibrant energy that’s contagious.
Convivial owner Saul Gropman and chef Jeffrey Lloyd make a formidable team. Lloyd, former executive chef of restaurant Michael Mina, offers a seasonal menu that’s discreet in its complexity, featuring the sort of dishes that seem to get better with each bite.
Gropman’s wine list comprises a modest 100 bottles, but it’s a smart, well-focused selection -

    It did not discipline. It was delicious and unforgettable culinary experience. From the moment we sat down service was impeccable and the food from the appetizers to the dinner to the dessert. The coffee was amazing. I can’t wait to come back. We started with their fresh sourdough bread with cultured butter, then we had the short rib puffed Pastry and butter leaf salad with aged red wine vinaigrette with feta avocado, onions, and tomato and dinner was chicken and petrale sole. We ended it with the cheesecake and butterscotch pudding and coffee. Delish!

    Cafe la Haye also has such great food and nightly specials. Don't miss their chocolate silk cake for desert. It's a must have. Great selection of wine also.

    Exceeded our expectations. The Hanger Steak was delicious and the chocolate cake amazing! Loved the small size and intimacy of the restaurant. Will definitely be back.

    From greeting to food and service including desserts a wonderful experience. Braised oxtail in pastry, brined chicken breast, and pork chop were very flavorful and well balanced. Our best meal in Sonoma this trip.

    Food was excellent and the service was among the best I have ever experienced. We were seated off in a corner and the host offered to move us to a much nicer table as soon as it cleared. He later did so with no prompting from us. Amazing attention to detail and an excellent value too. Can’t recommend more highly.

    Amazing as always. Food was absolutely delicious and our server, Esther, was fantastic. The service and food were both impeccable. Thank you Esther and Cafe Le Haye. It’s always a delight to spend the evening with you. ❤️
