Had dinner at Barndiva last night (Saturday Nov 2nd) and lunch the day before that. Both meals were top notch, with quick and attentive service and food with such beautiful plating that it looked like fine art.....and the taste; very upscale, yet the restaurant's ambiance isn't stuffy in the least. They have outdoor seating out front and in back. They basically know they've got it going on and they're eager for you to enjoy what they've got.
Barndiva is my new favorite restaurant in Healdsburg. I can't wait to return. Make sure to view my photos of the BLT crab sandwich I had for lunch and the salad, bree cheese starter and fish we had for dinner - I had swordfish and my wife had John Dory; all were excellent. The only negative thing I can say is that the bread they serve with dinner, which is a sourdough bread from an awesome french bakery right there in town, had a crust so hard I could NOT eat it - seriously, I though I'd break my teeth on it.
