Very fresh excellent food / sevice ok/ affordable – For the quality of the food, wine, ambiance, and location, I don't mind living w/ the spotty service. Sometimes the service is just fine, other times you get someone who keeps forgetting things, or doesn't communicate well, or doesn't understand how to explain the food on the menu. But the food, that's outstanding almost always. And the prices are very reasonable, including you can get 1/2 glasses of wine if you chose (I think it's a choice of 4 oz. vs. 8 oz. pours) plus the wine list is very nice.
I've eaten here quite a bit, and here are the things I highly recommend, and so far find outstanding (copied from the menu):
Steamed Mussels- In Garlic, White Wine & Aromatic Spices, Grilled Herb Bread
Warm Olives-Medley of Marinated Mediterranean Olives
Molly's Humus- Garnished with Warm Flat Bread, Olives & Local Organic Tomatoes
Smoked Salmon-Garnished with Olive Oil, Lemon, Capers, Parmesan; Carmelized Onions Pizzetta
Molly's Chicken - Slow Cooked, Middle Eastern Spices, White Wine, Citrus, Creamy Potatoes
Flat Iron Stake -Sauteed Onions & Mushrooms in Red Wine, Creamy Cheese Potatoes, Olive Butter
Spicy Garlic Chicken Wings ~ Blue Cheese Dressing (the spices also have ginger, yum!)
Grilled Lamb - Skewered Center Cut Sirloins of Local Lamb, Baby Artichoke, Parmesan Polenta Cake
There are still things I want to try, but have not been disapointed yet.
Also had Eggs benedict for breakfast once. It was Awesome - plenty of sauce, and cooked to perfection.
Favorite Restaurant in Santa Rosa – Although sonoma county restaurants leave something to be desired, I have found a true gem in Santa Rosa-Flavors. It is by far my favorite restaurant here. I ABSOLUTELY LOVE the prawn pasta. The ingredients are fresh and it is soooo flavorful. Although the restaurant can be quite busy and noisy, the prawn pasta is worth the wait!!!!
Darn good hamburgers but forget the pizza, bring your earplugs – They got one of the best burgers in town. The meat is fresh and tasty and cooked right. The tomato was fresh as well. The pizza should be taken off the menu. The dough was horrible. As for the atmosphere, I will say that they got one of the loudest restaurants I've eaten in. Doesn't matter where you sit. So be prepared to shout if you want to be heard over all the noise. The decible range must be in the 90-100 range. This makes eating here very uncomfortable. I dread going to eat here, and if it weren't for the hamburger I would never go.
