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... read more

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.

We are locals in Healdsburg but had not been to Mateo's. Most of our neighbors had been once and said it was not what you expect. It's definitely not Mexican. The cocktails (margaritas for us all around, including some specialty) were weak and watery. One in our party ordered the lamb enchiladas and two others shared the special Pig Roast... More

I had the Bodega Wild King Salmon and I thought it was excellent. The service was fast and friendly and my date and I both liked the atmosphere. A very nice dining experience.

Since we live in Wine Country, we were looking for a restaurant a little different then the usual Wine Country cuisine and were happy to find them. We enjoyed a refreshing ceviche and a great Cochinita Pibil (slow cooked marinated pork). Plus, I even discovered Valdez Pinot Noir, which they were serving by the glass that night.

Mateos was recommended to us by some family who live in Santa Rosa and we weren't disappointed. The staff were friendly and the food was fresh and unique. We are really glad we got experience this place.

Live part time in area and have enjoyed Mateo's food truck at the Healdsburg market - finally got around to visiting the restaurant. First reservation taken by new bartender turned out, at the last minute, for a night they are closed. Gave it another chance but what a disappointment! Food/service and value all very poor. Crispy oysters (4) were one... More

We had dined here for lunch 3 years ago and were looking forward to visiting again for dinner. Well, we were surprised that the menu was a total disappointment. It isn't any type of Mexican food we've had in the States or in Mexico. 6 guests seated at an adjoining table left after looking at the menu, we should have.... More
