Mateo's Yucatan influence on Healdsburg

My wife and I went on a wine walking tour and this was the first place we were brought to. Once the tour was completed some 4 hours later, we returned to Mateo's for dinner. The owner and chef made time for the tour in the morning to explain his cooking philosophy and we were provided a sample of... read more

Truly great wine list, creative plates of farm to table food in a gorgeous patio. With warm and attentive service. What's not to love?

For a taste of true, fresh and creative Mexican food do not miss Mateos. These people care about the food and your dining experience. Very solicitous and friendly our server and host guided us through a memorable lunch on the lovely patio. We shared plates of fresh oysters, the trio of appetizer spreads, halibut cerviche and gazpacho. All presented beautifully... More

There is a lot of wonderful food in Healdsburg, but Mateo's really stands out. It's like drinking fine wine; you can discover layers of flavors as you eat their food. It's complex and fabulous. Excellent drinks (e.g., house margarita with Reposado) and fun appetizers/botanas (try the tacones - little cones filled with heavenly ingredients, see the menu on their web... More

Decided to try a different type of Mexican restaurant last night in Healdsburg, so we tried Mateo's Cocina Latina . It is NOT your typical Mexican restaurant, it is more of the Yucatan style of cooking. We found everything to be absolutely fresh and of local ingredients. I was in search of a simple salmon meal and found it here.... More

My wife and I had dinner at Mateo's on the recommendation of our Innkeeper, Jerry Messina. Cool atmosphere inside with a great patio out back. Our waiter arrived promptly to give us the low down on the menu and then never returned. If it wan't for the attentive and extremely friendly bartenders, we may never have been served. We had...

I have enjoyed eating at Mateos on a number of occasions. Their food is wonderfully prepared and presented in a beautiful courtyard, planted with olive trees and grape vines. I especially like the Yucatan influenced dishes and the wonderful selection of tequilla and Mescal and specialty drinks. Their house made tortillas are out of this world. I see some odd... More

Mateo is a self-made gourmet chef. He worked his way up through the ranks, learning from such great chefs as Julian Serrano. His food may be based on food from Yucatan but it is a very sophisticated, creative version. He not only slaughters much of his own meat but also forages for local mushrooms and sources the best local products... More

We truly enjoyed our dinner here. The staff was very attentive, the food was interesting (not your stereotypical Mexican dishes), and pricing was very reasonable.
