Syrah Bistro in Santa Rosa

Has anyone heard of or been to this place? I found it on Zagat's, but haven't seen it mentioned on any of the boards.

  1. yes, it's good. small place, good portions. safe but interesting entrees. i'd say it's worth a go.

    1. I really like Syrah, especially their tasting menu, which is a good value. They have a nice wine list (as you'd expect), offering flights as well.

        It's been at least two year's since I've been there, but I found it to be good value. Especially for the wine pairings.

      2. We just went for the four-course tasting menu, paired with wine. Lots of fun, delicious, generous pours of interesting local wines. Definitely worthwhile.

            They started with a little extra appetizer of beet slices with a tiny wedge of Humbolt Fog cheese. There were still four courses after that. They brought three desserts for the two of us, but not cheese at that point. However, you can ask if there are things you'd like included in the tasting menu.

            Do you know how much the tasting menu is?

              Tasting menu is $55 for four courses, maybe $75 for 7 courses? Something like that. An extra $10 for foie gras, $30 or $40 for paired wines--- something like that. I believe the whole table has to do it, though you can express preferences from the main menu. I thought that four (really five) courses was enough for us, especially since we live nearby so we didn't feel we had to taste every last thing right then. Another good reason to live closeby is the size of the pours. Yikes!
