So glad they are open again!
Every dish was fabulous! We chose this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. Best decision we could have made. Highly recommend, once you dined here it will become a frequent event.
The salad did pathetic, for $16 for a small special salad is ridiculously small and over dressed. My petit filet and lobster tail was season well but can out rare. The service saved us. The busser kept refilling our drinks and the server was super attentive. We will come for the service and make sure not to get the salad or filet.
Great local in Aptos. Food is always excellent, the staff are very friendly and helpful.
Simply the best meal in 5 counties. We always come here for a fabulous meal and amazing service. This crew is like a synchronized dance crew. They anticipate each other’s needs and they put the customers first. It’s rarely duplicated. Experience it for yourself. This is the best restaurant in Northern CA.
Amazing as always!
We had a lovely meal that was beautifully prepared. the staff were terrific and everything was perfect for our first indoor dining experience. The blueberry sorbet was delicious!
Cafe Sparrow has an excellent choice of dinner selections. Prices are on the pricey side but the meal was excellent! The staff was excellent and provided a very casual relaxing atmosphere. Definitely will eat there again. Cafe Sparrow is small and reservations are a must.
I usually LOVE my dinner at Cafe Sparrow. This time my calamari was underdone and rubbery. The rest of my dinner was fine. Our guest loved her dinner (pasta with sauce; she is vegetarian). My husband thought his veggies wonderful, but his sole was not as good as last time we ate here.
Desserts were wonderful. Restaurant quieted down near the end of our meal. We'll be back.
Excellent food, delicious!
Cafe Sparrow is always a favorite. They never disappoint.
Food was delicious but my wife ordered her steak medium and it came very rare. A little disappointed with the error at this price point. Mine was cooked perfectly and the braised beef appetizer was awesome. The sauces for the steaks were awesome. Overall really good.
Delightful dinner and a large selection with all the nightly specials. We had the wedge salad, pork belly and scallop appetizers. That was enough with a bottle of Roth Cabernet. Then overdid it ordering two desserts, but the Carmel creme was the best...we took the chocolate cake home!!
Attentive but not overbearing service. Excellent quality. Superb taste.
Crab cakes for appetizer - more crab than cake.
Grilled Fillet of Sole on salsa with pumpkin creme, rice and beets excellent flavor combinations.
Service was great and very prompt compared to other places we've been post pandemic! They're obviously prepping some of the appetizer items ahead of time so everything went very smoothly. Service people were attentive and friendly. The food was beautifully presented but everything we had was super super salty! That's my only negative comment. I'll definitely go back and try it again just to see if it was an off night
Food selection is very diverse, and delicious, albeit a bit $$$, with many daily specials. However, this is the second time one of our entrees was undercooked (meat). Crostini on the Brie appetizer was too thin. One bite and it fell apart. Detracted from its delicious flavor. Waitstaff is friendly, helpful and patient. Ambiance is quaint but this time was loud. But none of this will stop us from returning.
Cafe sparrow was an excellent and authentic French dining experience. Both of our meals were prepared expertly especially the duck breast and dessert!
Great food, lovely service. We’ll be back!
Once again, Cafe Sparrow did not disappoint. Beautiful presentation of the food and impeccable service.
Get diversity in the menu - almost too much to chose from!
As always wonderful experience. This is the sixth time in a couple years and the consistency is remarkable.
The atmosphere and food was outstanding. They have a large, varied menu. We had the local King salmon and the seafood capellini - both delicious. The service was exceptional as well - with terrific recommendations for wine, food, and dessert. This is a 'definitely going back' in the future.
The food was delicious!
Top tier dining experience.
Desserts are made in house, and don't bother with a small portion.
Wonderful food and service!
Definitely recommend 😊
Awesome! Highly recommend. I’d go again for sure.
We finally went back for our first in person dining experience at cafe sparrow in over a year and it was exactly as it’s always been, great! Wonderful food, solid service, and a delightful evening all around. Our group had the filet, short rib, large Caesar, and the filet with fettuccini Alfredo. Everything was very good but the filet with fettuccini was the standout! Brownie sundae dessert was very small but tasted good. Already looking forward to our next visit.
We love everything about Cafe Sparrow! This was our first in person dining experience since before Covid. The food was as wonderful as always. Our servers were very attentive and friendly.
Cafe Sparrow is, perhaps, the finest restaurant in the Santa Cruz area. We love it.
Outstanding food and service. OpenTable reservations worked great!
First time to the sparrow and will return when in the area. I have 2 daughters that have homes in Seascape. They recommended we go to Sparrow. The food and service was excellent
Thank you for a wonderful experience! Then entire staff is top notch and food is always delicious.
My wife and I popped in on a last minute trip to Santa Cruz and quite literally could not have been more surprised in the most delightful way... every single dish we enjoyed, including deserts, were an 11 / 10. Service was warm, approachable and helpful the entire evening (even though we were the last diners in the restaurant). We'll definitely be going back next time we are in town!
We had a lovely evening and a delicious dinner. I had the duck breast with berry sauce and it was wonderful. My husband was equally delighted with the brie stuffed pork chop. Our wait person, Helen was friendly, and efficient.
Always a great experience at Cafe Sparrow! Can't go wrong there!
What an unassuming treasure! Everything was fantastic - the duck and the rack of lamb and the deserts. If you're looking for high end quality without the high end pretentiousness, this is where you want to go.
Great food and location for a date or family dinner.
First time inside visit since COVID restrictions and we were not disappointed. Just a lovely dinner.
We love Cafe Sparrow! It is always consistent in quality of food and service.
