Next to the Healdsburg Hotel. Wait staff was very attentive and knowledgeable. We brought our own wine from wineries. The gazpacho soup was to die for. I would like the recipe. Would go back again and again!

Fine dining establishment. I felt a little underdressed in my capri jeans. The food was great, the service was great. A bit on the pricey side but we sort of expected that.

I've neen going to Dry Creek Kitchen every couple of years when I visit Healdsburg. I have always enjoyed a delicious meal. This year I heard that the long time chef had left to start his own restaurant, so I hoped that I would not be disappointed. I WAS NOT DISAPPOINTED. The Pea Tortellini with chanterelle mushrooms, heirloom tomatoes and... More

After our 30-miles bike trip Healdsburg - Geyserville it was so nice to know that we had a booking at this restaurant again........and it lived up to our expectations for the 7th time. Good to know that you can bring your own Sonoma wine (no corkage fee) but they also have a very good wine list where you find excellent... More

We had this place recommended to us by a savvy food lover, s we had high expectations. These were not met, unfortunately. The food was average at best, and this was a huge disappointment. We are in search of a really good restaurant in Healdsburg.

Friendly, attentive staff, especially remarkable since we had our 3 teens with us! Amazing vegetarian options, including pea-stuffed tortellini. Great wine list (no surprise) - enjoyed salmon with a Hirsch San Andreas Fault. Wonderful ambiance - windows open to Healdsburg Plaza.

My wife and I ate here yesterday at the recommendation of a friend and we had a great time. We opted for the 3-course tasting menu with the corresponding wine pairing, which we felt provided great value at $54 per person. The starter was the best focaccia bread either of us had ever tried, followed by a house salad that... More

Charlie Palmer's take on California cuisine utilizes classic French techniques in a delightful way. We were he bounty of California is distilled to its essence highlighting each fresh flavor...Gazpacho - Summer in a bowl, Tortellini - Unexpectedly lucious, Halibut - Perfectly cooked and that SUCCOTASH! The service was attentive and informed and it was obvious that the staff took pride... More

Chef Charlie Palmer's Dry Creek Kitchen always has been a great dining experience. It is situated at the beautiful Healdsburg Plaza. In summers, you can request for an outdoor seating to soak in the views. The service is very efficient and courteous. The French styled food is delicious and the dishes are very well plated. The wine list is extensive,... More
