The food was delicious, but I wish I had not put the hot sauce on my huevos rancheros. The sauce was too hot for my taste and I only used a few drops. Salsa would have been a better option. Overall the restaurant was very good. I love that they grow their own fresh herbs and vegetables. Price... read more

I loved this place. Accidentally found it and was glad I did. It's in my contact file now so I can return when I'm in wine country again. I was amazed with the tequila selections. The bartender allowed us to do tastings & made us one of his specialty drinks... Oh my! It was too good!. The food choices were... More

The food here is terrific but the Margaritas are off the planet. Fresh ingredients for sure. Just order what the bartender has on hand to add to the basic ingredients and you will be in happy-ville. Or, stick with the menu Margs and enjoy the tastiest drink ever.

We had an early meal prior to a movie. It was our family of 4 (one of us being a vegetarian). The restaurant was pretty and the staff quite nice. The margarita was very small and all ice (bummer). The menu was limited for a vegetarian unless fish is the option. We had a good meal, however, never offered an... More

Just not a good dining experience. While the cauliflower soup was excellent, the rest of the food either didn't have taste or was dry, like the meat. Slow and lost waiters....drinks sat forever on the bar but not delivered, soup arrived late as an after thought with the main entree, no real check-in to see how things were, etc, etc.... More

Great food. Wonderful service. We were visiting the wine country and decided to go to Mateos for dinner. This was our second visit to the restaurant. We were not disappointed. The flavored of my fish were balanced and delicious. We will be going back next time we are in the area.

I have never written a bad review as I figure that every restaurant may have an off night but this was the worst experience I've ever had. We had reservations for 6:45 and were not served until after 8:00. Three groups that ordered after us actually finished their meals before we were served. My mom had a tempura dish with... More

We have eaten here twice. Did not enjoy the food, or the service. Plain and simple, food is just food, nothing amazing, dull flavor. Realistically, a restaurant can not be perfect for everyone, and this is probably one of the few, we will never try again.

This restaurant was a recommendation by a co-worker. So glad we were able to make it to Healdsburg, and this restaurant! Food was delicious, drinks were amazing, and the service was fantastic!

Stopped in here for lunch after arriving in Healdsburg from San Francisco and before checking into our hotel. At the time we stopped, around 4:30pm, we were the only people in the place, but it was between meal times so it was understood... Atmosphere of the restaurant was nice, especially the outdoor seating. Food was good, we had the Pork... More
