Our anniversary dinner at Cafe Sparrow was outstanding. Every course was delicious with the Petrale Sole cooked to perfection. Our waitperson was friendly, knowledgeable, had great recommendations and was incredibly attentive. It was the best dining experience we've had in quite awhile!
Great food…great waitstaff…great ambiance! Loved our visit!,
The crab cakes are divine. The fried green tomatoes, breaded in panko, are a cheeky and delightful addition to the appetizer menu (only recommendation, chef: more of that delicious aioli please). My husband had the beef curry soup - another new addition - and it was surprisingly light, whereas I had the mediterranean salad because I cannot resist Bob's tomate concassé. The duck was superb, but the salmon, which I overlooked as being something I can get elsewhere turned out to be the real star - my husband had to guard his plate. It was simply such exceptional seafood prepared so well, I was a little sad I had gotten fancy with the excellent duck but it's a bit of an embarrassment of riches.
The bread pudding dessert, which has replaced the créme caramel as my favorite on the desert menu, never fails; my husband prefers the chocolate bombe which is just a little too much for me.
Regrettably there is no dolly service to take you back our to your car after dinner. Knowing that this place remains as good as ever and has survived intact with the same staff on hand - some have been here for 20 years - puts a smile on my heart and a smirk on my belly. The Sparrow, for me, is part of what makes this area home - it's more than just good eats. It's a statement about how to live well without ostentation, how to host gracefully without pretention, how to make the ingredients the star, not the chef, and how to care for guests and make them feel like family without, well, treating them like family. Toss in a glass of very good wine and the best non-alcoholic beer I've ever tasted, taxes and tip and it rounded out to just about $200. Worth every penny.
Always reliably good. We enjoy coming here for special occasions.
Café Sparrow never has disappointed us. Every course is exquisite and the staff works together so well. Again last night the smoked chicken pasta and leg of lamb were exceptional. We only wish we lived closer!
Really nice dinner in every respect, we just love this place!
This place is a gem. Attention to details. Consistent. I wish I could eat here every week.
Wonderful food! Our server Helen was awesome and fun!
Always great food and service. Wonderful selection of fresh gourmet dishes.
Absolutely the best food you can get anywhere around Santa Cruz. We have been here a couple of times, and each time it just gets better and better. The Filet Mignon and the Filet Fettuccine Alfredo are our favorites, and don't forget the Seared Ahi Tuna and Spicy Crab Cakes! The wait staff is delightful and very accommodating. I highly recommend this place to everyone! Perfect spot for a date night.
Amazing menu and service.
10/10 would come back! Awesome night out- apps, dinner and dessert were all delicious!
Cafe Sparrow is our go-to place when we want to celebrate something. We love the staff and the food is always perfect!! When my partner asked about potential wine pairings for his entree, he was provided with a thoughtful list of options and it was very clear the staff knows their stuff! Sparrow will always be my favorite place!
Wonderful sauces. Delicate tastes and textures! Wide variety in the menu😊
Great date night or special occasion place. Best I’ve found in Aptos.
Great waitress! Attentive,polite, knowledgeable and prompt.
Second time there and it's been fantastic. Great choice of wines.
I am gluten and dairy free and our server was so accommodating to my needs. Everything was delicious!
Our usual restaurant in Capitola was booked, so we tried Cafe Sparrow, and really enjoyed our dinner. The menu was creative and the food was delicious. The service was great, the entire staff was welcoming and the service was attentive.
Cafe Sparrow is one of those rare and special restaurants that have managed to succeed in delivering real and tasty food with a lot of care and attention to great ingredients, staff and environment.
We have an appreciation for and actually prefer good home cooking- so it’s been hard to find dining out that comes anywhere close. Cafe Sparrow delivers on this wish.
Thanks for a wonderful Birthday dinner celebration. P.S the desserts rocked!
Terrific food; interesting menu. Food well prepared. Very nice, upscale cafe. Great for a date or for a small group.
Fabulous as always.
So many specials to choose from! Short ribs were a bit tough but sauce was fantastic. Loved the petrale sole and the duck was amazing. Love Cafe Sparrow but it is pricey and has seemingly WAY too many menu options. Will keep going back as a treat.
Dinner at Cafe Sparrow was superb. Each dish was crafted exquisitely and tasted divine. Lisa was an awesome server. This restaurant is a gem!
The service was perfect, attentive but not over bearing. The overall timing of the food service was spot on, not too quick and not too slow, just right. The specials were amazing, my wife got the bouil·la·baisse, my son got the rack of lamb and I got the surf and turf with crab cakes. Well cooked and well seasoned. Overall, a great night out.
Fantastic place and amazing food. Definitely will come again.
Fantastic food and excellent service! We love the charm of this cafe!
We enjoyed our meal so much that we would travel back to Aptos just to dine at Cafe Sparrow. Cafe Sparrow provides authentic, delicious French cooking in a quaint and welcoming atmosphere. It was difficult to choose from the menu because we wanted to try everything including the wine pairings! Cafe Sparrow should be on your “must do” list.
The food was outstanding and reasonably priced when you consider the quality of the meal. They had a very diverse menu and then an abundance of specials. I had the New Zealand Rack of Lamb and my husband had the Blackened Salmon. My dish was an explosion of unexpected and amazing flavors. Additionally our server was very attentive. We were seated right away, had waters within minutes, our order taken and food delivered without having to wait, and the bus person brought a to go container without my even having to ask. It was our anniversary and I think they were prepared to bring us a complimentary dessert. When we said we were stuffed, we were still presented a dollop of whipped creme with a strawberry and strawberry sauce and a chocolate candy. Wow! Want to return to explore other options! Call me a fan.
Always a good choice to dine at Cafe Sparrow.
Had the lamb which was very tasty however, the rack came whole and it was very difficult to cut. I would have preferred the chops separated rather than me have to muscle my way through. Will definitely return, but order something else next time. There were a lot of wonderful options. The cheese cake dessert was EXCELLENT.
Awesome dinner. Fantastic service.
My wife and I came back for a special night together. The service was good and everyone was friendly. We like the atmosphere, and were allowed to choose a table we like. Not sure which wine we wanted, the server provided a couple of small samples so that we were quite happy with our choices. We were super happy with the fried green tomatoes and hope to see that on the menu in the future. The lamb chops were excellent and cooked perfectly, and the calamari defied physics with how tender it was. We like that there is a sizeable dessert menu and we liked the ginger cake and lemon pudding very much, particularly due to the reasonable portions. Thanks for a comfortable and satisfying evening!
Food was delicious, from the appetizer to the entree, to the desserts. Service excellent. Small place and it was packed. Made me a little nervous in these Covid times but just be cautious.
Try the venison if they have it. Very good preparation.
We were hosting my Mom-in-law from out of town, so cozy and tasteful meal.
Sparrow salad alone was worth going back for. Very happy with our filet and rack of lamb. First class
Great authentic find. We would highly recommend cafe sparrow for the food service and ambiance. I had a rack of lamb that was perfectly cooked at medium rare. Michael our server was great and we went away very satisfied.
Looking forward to returning to this spot over and over to try all the fabulous looking items on their menu!
Lovely spot. Wanted a nice, local sit down restaurant while we were in the area for the day. Did not disappoint. Cute ambiance - felt both country and french.
Outstanding dinner and service. Many menu selections. Everything we tried was superb. Restaurant is quaint and intimate and quiet enough to have a conversation. We can't wait to return!
My husband and I enjoyed our dinner at the Cafe Sparrow. The restaurant was nicely decorated, the staff was attentive and helpful. Our food was delicious. I would recommend this restaurant to people visiting the Aptos area.
