Celebrating 30 Years in Railroad Square
208 Wilson Street, Santa Rosa, CA 95401 - 707-528-4355


Family owned restaurant in charming stone buliding.

La Gare French Restaurant is located in the heart of Santa Rosa's historic railroad square. The restaurant opened in July 1979 and has been family owned and operated ever since. The decor and ambiance reflect an elegant old world charm. Roger, with his sister Jacqueline as gracious hostess, continue a tradition begun by their parents, Swiss-born Marco and Gladys Praplan. Together with a corps of mindful and experienced wait staff that offers proficient, unhurried service, the Praplan frère et soeur are proud to invite you to their table.

Voted "Best Restaurant and Most Romantic" many years running, La Gare has developed a reputation of excellence and is highly regarded by Iocals and visitors alike.

The San Francisco Chronicle recently praised the restaurant:
"Long regarded as Santa Rosa's most romantic restaurant, La Gare serves exquisite French food without being over the top. The menu is studded with traditional and adventuresome dishes such as Chateaubriand, sweetbreads and sauteed frog legs, though there are fish and vegetarian options, too. The wine list includes labels from California and a variety of wine regions in France. For dessert, try the chocolate mousse - sweet, simple and delicious." (9/28/08)
