"Innovative Menu. If it's a nice warm day, sit outside. For cooler nights try the Bistro area and the French Onion Soup!"

"All 6 of us throughly enjoyed our meals. The prices were not out of sight & food was not skimpy, but you felt like you were out at a very special place. They comped out dessert as it was a 75th birthday celebration. We will definitely go again"

"We recently moved to sebastopol and I had always noticed this place as I drove by to the coast. Checked out their happy hour which usually has a yummy drink special or 2. Nice large bar with a cozy fireplace in the corner surrounded by cushy chairs and couch. Happy hour mussels and clams are special. I always get the french onion soup and they do it well here. (Not on happy hour menu) Good cheezy melty bread on top. Dinner is good too. Always have a nice fish prepared well. Not a cheap meal but is always fresh and tastey. They have outdoor seating and quite a large dining room. When we were there last it was very quiet bit when happy hour is on it gets louder. Definitely not rowdy tho. Great reliable food nearby. Always bring my mom there. She loves the cloth napkins and tablecloths. Makes it feel more upscale."

"Using local ingredients assembled, cooked and presented in the most interesting combinations. Some of the highest quality service you'll ever experience coupled with a choice of indoors with a fireplace, a plush dining room and a wonderful outdoor garden area, all combine to provide a Wide range of settings. The prices considering the quality of service, exquisite menus choices and seating options make this an excellent value. Our favorite is brunch."

"We had reservations and were greeted and seated right away, but there was a graciousness that was missing from that point on that we were expecting from this higher end restaurant. We waited too long for our meals (about 45 minutes after ordering) and when they came they were somewhat mediocore. The accoustics bounced around a lot of noise and it was difficult to have a dinner conversation. There was a large private dinner party going on and that may have had something to do with it, but you could feel the stress on the wait staff. Overall, somewhat disappointed in our experience. Another day and time may have resulted in a better experience but we likely will not take a chance on that in the future with so many other great restaurants to discover in Sonoma County."

"Excellent brunch!! My apple walnut salad was amazing. The outside seating is slightly noisy due to it being next to a busy street. But it didn't bother us too much."

"We eat out a lot.
This is our fourth time to French Garden. This time for Valentine's Day.
UNBELIEVABLE!
The dining experience is without match.
From the appetizer to the dessert....our palate's and eyes were teased with the most exciting and satisfying presentations.
We cant wait to return.

"I hadn't realized that it was a pre-set price of $87 per person when I booked the reservation for 4 of us. I probably would have been scared off. I'm glad we went. The service was perfect. Available but not intrusive or pushy. The food was excellent. Nice ambience. Salad and vegetables were creative and delicious. My least favorite of the whole night was the lamb chop. It was ok, not great. Would definitely go again."

"Food is excellent. The Chef is a CHEF (French style). Very wonderful flavors in every dish. We went for the Valentine's special dinner. It was pricey, but worth it. My only objection is the (to me) wine "corkage fee". Living in Sonoma County, where excellent wine is abundant, makes paying restaurant prices for wine an obstacle to me wanting to return for dinner. The bar area has a very pleasant and open atmosphere so perhaps paying for wine during "Happy Hour' would be OK."

"It is,with great concern that I rate the French Garden so low. I made the reservation through Open Table and stated my wife's allergies and that we were celebrating her birthday. None of this was ever acknowledged. I also asked for champagne cocktails to be delivered once we were seated. This also was never acknowledged ... I had to ask for them and they arrived slightly chilly. Our lunch /brunch arrived half frozen chicken. Waitress credit us for 1, but both should have been. I won't return. After requesting champagne cocktails, service went down hill.
Only positive, outside, patio seating, was very nice.
Overall, I think everyone there was more concerned about superb owl than us. So sad. I was embarrassed for recommending the restaurant for celebrating my wife's birthday."
