I have eaten in this resturant several times over the years and in fact had the best meal of my life here in 2012 but last night was a letdown. There were a few bites of good food and one excellent course but several that were less than expected. Most notably the lamb was tough,fatty and underseasoned. Two courses featured... More

We had the 10-course tasting menu. I agreed with many of the reviewers that the small bites before each course were interesting but did not really compliment to the main menu. I can see the chef is trying to be creative and Japanese inspired but some of the small bites were just too small and didn't turn out to be... More

In an area where it's hard to find a bad meal, Chef Jesse and his team knock the dining experience out of the park. The flavors, presentation and wine pairings made this an experience I will never forget. Don't miss this.

This was my birthday dinner for this year. My husband and I had the Chef's Grande Dame Menu with the wine pairing to share. This menu includes 10 courses and many small tastes from the chef. The menu was very good, but the tiny tastes were just an intrusion rather than a compliment to the menu. I could review each... More

We came for New Year eve dinner. The place was well decorated and the service impeccable. A five course tasting menu was offered with surcharges for the better choices. Additional tastes were offered in between courses. Overall, we found the food to be ostentatiously presented, but without memorable flavors. The beef main course was an exception as the beef was...

The restaurant is situated in an imposing mansion just out of Healdsburg and was a bit gaudily lit up for the holidays. Inside, dinner is served in different, elegant, Victorian rooms - ours had four tables. It was empty when we arrived which was odd because when we asked if we could arrive even fifteen minutes early were told no... More

We went there for their Dickens Christmas Dinner, but anytime of the year will result in a memorable dining experience. One of the most expensive restaurant in the area but worth every $$$. Where else can you have ice cream make at your table?

If you are going to the Madrona Manor as we did for Thanksgiving dinner be prepared to pay a 20% service charge just for dinner plus a automatic 20% tip built into your check. For us we paid $84.00 for service charges and the restaurant requested we add additional tips to the check on top of the 20% automatic tip... More

We decided to eat at a restaurant this year and picked the Madrona Manor. I was quite surprised about the menu. It was prix fix.. which we expected. But the first course was a TINY piece of lobster in a sauce....second choice was Caviar....with a $35. surcharge!!! Obviously we took the lobster. Second choice was a salad....or Risotto with White... More

We were in Healdsburg, Ca for a day of wine tasting. At the end of the day, just happened to be browsing in a bookstore, found a book "Visiting Northern California" and saw the rating of this restaurant as "excellent". So, we just went there without a reservation (early for dinner) and were seated within 20 minutes. We selected the... More
