We found the menu to be inventive and the food was very well prepared. We did not try the tasting menus, which looked to be a bit much in terms of food and money. The wine list has lots of interesting local wines and the wine steward as very knowledgable. The staff overall were extremely attentive making for a lovely... More

I thought this would be another ridiculous "gourmet" place where you are served a berry on a spoon with a mint leaf by two tuxedo clad waiters. I honestly wanted a meal, and to my surprise I got a very superb, gourmet dinner. The restaurant is large and lovely. The food was to die for, and in adequate portions to... More

We previously enjoyed Dry Creek Kitchen 5 years ago and returned during a recent trip at my wife's request. (A compromise from visiting French Laundry.) We have had incredible dining experiences at other locations in Healdsburg during our multiple travels to this area, but were not as wowed from this experience as we were from the past. When the four... More

We ate there on a Friday night. The only reservation we could get for four was 8:15 so that tells you something of the popularity of this beautiful restaurant right on the Square. To be honest I was disappointed with the food. It was pretty good and beautifully plated but lacked in seasoning and taste. And that price the food... More

Dry Creek is a beautifully decorated restaurant with marvelous food and wine pairings. The sommelier is on the ball with recommendations. I had the roasted pork that was expertly paired with a Pinot Noir. Ask for the cheese selection for dessert.

To begin dinner, the sommelier recommended two wines to accompany our four course meal. Both wines were absolutely fantastic. Then, after the salad, we were given two options. While most of the folks in our party enjoyed the sashimi plate (which was beautifully presented), I went with the charcuterie platter, which was the envy of the table; it came on... More

In a beautiful atmosphere this well known and frequented restaurant enjoys a reputation unmatched by either its menu, food, or service. It's ok. But really, for the money, they could do much better, and not be quite as self-pleased. The menu is not very extensive. The wines are somewhat overpriced for the region.
