We've visited Mateo's many times and has been a favorite, but that has changed. Our experience started with a rude hostess who made us feel like she was doing us a favor to seat us when we said we didn't have reservations, though most tables were empty and we checked Open Table just minutes before... read more

The chef at this high end Mexican restaurant is greatly influenced by the flavors of the Yucatan. Our food was made from fresh ingedients and served expertly. The flavors of chiles and fresh vegetables were delightful to the palate. We had lunch. The food exceeded our expectations. My wife ordered an Atumn Margerita which included fresh cilantro,jalapeño, tequila, lime juice... More

This place specializes in Yucatan cuisine, which places it a cut above (or perhaps makes it more distinctive) from the usual Mexican restaurants. The appetizers that come in a unique "taco-cone" are especially appealing, as are the ceviches. Drinks are reasonably priced, and the service friendly and attentive.

It was a gorgeous day so we took advantage of their outdoor seating. Our entire meal was absolutely delicious. I don't know what it's called, but my husband had a dish with mashed potatoes, crab and mushrooms... Literally one of the most amazing things I have ever tasted. I had a mushroom quesadilla that was also fantastic. Highly recommended.

I had lunch here on a trip to Healdsburg. Dining on the patio was lovely and the food was outstanding. The service was efficient and friendly. I especially liked the spicy margarita! Would definitely make this a regular stop if I lived in the area.

We were blown away by the authentic fresh cuisine and unique drinks. The food was so fresh and sitting in the courtyard in the back was a great way to start our day. Pace yourself and go hungry.

We like to come up from the Bay Area to spend a weekend in Healdsburg mainly for the food. There are two restaurants that we consider top notch. We solved this dilemma by eating dinner at Mateo's both nights that weekend, and the lunches at the other restaurant. We've been to Mateo's several times now and look forward to their... More

Great food but service is uneven. Margaritas are wonderful. I felt as though the atmosphere could have been more upbeat. There was live music being inside but virtually everyone was seated on the patio on that beautiful night. Move the music outside guys! It will liven things up a bit.

First let me say that we were a very tired and hungry group of 8 looking for a solid meal after a day of traveling. When we entered, the hostess seems shocked by a group of eight and let us know that we would need to eat separate inside or sit outside. I asked if they had heaters if we... More

Went through Healdsburg for a second time a week ago and had the pleasure of once again visiting Mateo's. Wow, they did not disappoint. Still delicious, beautifully-layered, well-sourced food. And the best pomegranate margarita I've every had! And the service is still terrific - efficient, courteous and friendly. I love this place! Highly recommended.
