Flavor Bistro is an Italian restaurant in downtown Santa Rosa, right around the corner from both Third Street Aleworks and Russian River. We popped in on our first night in SR for the first RB Best Awards & Festival because all six taps were devoted to Moonlight (Toast! Reality Czech! Death & Taxes!). So I crushed a few pints of some long-time wants with some other RB bros standing around the bar, while only a few tables in this otherwise quiet Italian restaurant were taken. The food looked excellent but I didnít parttake. Beers were $5.25 for a pint, if memory serves. Bartender was definitely not pleased with the nature and behavior of our group, which was by no means out of line but unconventional for this place. But the second one I ordered, a half pint, got put in a full glass. He said it was because they were low on the other glasses but I think he liked me and VsXsV for actually buying pints. If youíre looking for Moonlight beers and/or good Italian food, swing by here.

Not really a place where you come only to drink beer, but really a fancier, sitdown restaurant. They did however accommodate our fairly large group of bros who just wanted to stand by the bar and tick. They had fiveish beers on draught, which of several were from Moonlight. I was there for Toast (Slightly Burnt). Service was nice enough for most of the time, however the bartender at times seemed frustrated and unnecessarily slow, maybe since we werenít dinner guests and therefore result in lower tips. He did however way overpour mine and phalesluís half pints, while still charging the standard amount. Prices were generally reasonable for the beers. Decor felt a bit tired, typical í90s Italian restaurant. Good for stoping by and finding many Moonlight ticks at once, but eating might be worth doing here as well.

Stopped in here to try a few Moonlight beers late on a Friday night. The place was fairly empty, so the staff were happy to accommodate our group, even though were werenít interested in eating. There were roughly 5 beers on tap, Toast (Slightly Burnt) being the highlight. Prices were reasonable. Overall, I enjoyed my time here. The tap selection kept me interested and the staff were kind. Itís a great food option if Russian River is too hectic.

More of a nice restaraunt than anything else. It does have a bar area but not the kind of place you would normally drink at. They are known to have the best selection of Moonlight beers on tap. If you are looking for Moonlight or a decent meal this is a decent stop.

We rolled in after the over packed mess at RR. Not expecting what we walked into a nice looking Italian restaurant not a beer place at all. We sat down and ordered all the beers on the list. the staff was very nice and not to disappointed we didnít order food.

This place was serving a rare malt likka tick, with that said herds of tickers descended upon the staff chanting Toast Toast Toast. They had several other Moonlight beers on tap as well. Somehow the staff didnít throw us vagrants out as its couldnít have been easy with only 3 pints being ordered to share between dozen or more folks. Really was a nice place, but tickers are going to tick. Luckily no one realized they had free bread for patrons.

Italian restaurant and the food looked good. Great place to try several Moonlight beers on tap, though not really a beer joint.

Visited for dinner around 8.30pm on Monday 28/04/14. Downtown restaurant, just a couple of minutes walk from RR, that acts as a tap for Moonlight, 4 of their beers on tap during my visit. Decor lacked a little, whilst clean and perfectly accetable, it just had a tired air about it, kind of late 80ís early 90ís. Food was good, decent burger, although the menu was a little all over the place, jack of all trades kind of thing so was worried about the quality initially although it turned out fine. Not a place Iíd rush back to but if in town and you have the time, why not!?

Visited half a dozen times since RBSG 2009.

I didnít know this place existed when I followed the Danes over here. Itís kind of an upscale wine bar with good food but I was there mostly to try the Moonlight beers. Actually every time Iíve stopped in has been to see whatís new from Moonlight. The first time I went tried to order samples of all the beers but they didnít offer that. I then asked the guy if he would just charge me for a couple full glasses and give me a little of each. He agreed and poured 5 oz into a series of wine glasses. In the end he only charged me $5 so I left a $5 tip. Since then theyíve started doing tasters since I"m sure Iím not the only one to ask for a flight of Moonlight tasters. There are only two bartenders that Iíve ever come across here and theyíve both been exceptionally nice. This is a good stop while in quaint little downtown Santa Rosa. Itís also conveniently located half way between Russian River and 3rd Street Ale Works.
