“Cute resturant”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 9, 2013

This resturant is not a chain. It has history with it's local owners / chef. The building is charming country style. The menu is very limited. Although the staff very helpful and friendly, the food was just ok for being pricy. Enjoyed a walk around town afterwards.

Thanks for taking the time to write this review, Michelle. I'm glad you enjoyed our atmosphere and service. I just wish our food would've wowed you as well. Do you have any feedback as to what we could do to make our dishes better? I'm sure the kitchen staff would love to know.

Overall, it sounds like you had a great trip to California. We're glad you came by and would love another chance to impress you when you come back.

Until then,

“Service great..food not so much”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

Called for reservation and told "if I move things around I can find a table because we are busy". Upon arrival restaurant was half full and remained that way the entire meal. Service was excellent and very knowledgeable. Fried Green Beans are excellent. Chicken and dumplings was bland and difficult to eat. Not easy to cut chicken off the bone while navigating the veggies and dumplings. Was not a "comfort" meal. Husband had pork chop. Good flavor in the smoking but stuffing has dry. Roasted peach sorbet was sad. There were several tables of locals celebrating events which made the place feel warm and friendly. Perhaps we just picked the wrong entrees.

I'll be sure to pass along your comments on the dishes you ordered to the kitchen staff. If you do decide to give us another chance on your next trip to the area, I can tell you we've gotten great feedback on our Grilled Angus Hanger Steak.

“Delicious food in a perfectly rustic atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2013 via mobile

Delicious! Especially the mushroom appetizer! The staff was super friendly and very kind. They were a bit busy at the beginning of our dining experience, but managed to get to us in as timely a fashion as possible.
Our food was great!!! We had the mushroom appetizer, roasted chicken, and lamb. My lamb was crazy delicious! Unfortunately we got a grumpy lamb with some gristle that made him quite difficult to cut. The server made a valiant attempt to cut it as well, but to no avail. I could only eat half. That half was awesome! And they took the entree off the bill and gave us free dessert. My husband of 6 days never ever ever eats dessert and he ate 90% of it!!! Chocolate brownie sundae thing. Get it!!! The chicken was good too.

Be sure to make a reservation!

Whiskymarie, we're happy you and your husband enjoyed your time with us. Apologies for the grumpy lamb! It sounds like we tried to help, but to no avail. At least we made things right by the time your bill came around. I'll be sure to share this review with the staff and remind them to keep up the great work when it comes to excellent service.

We're looking forward to your next reservation. See you soon?

“Zin is an excellent choice in Healdsburg”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013 via mobile

We had a great experience at Zin. Food was very good. On the first night we stopped by and they were booked the and couldn't get in so we made reservations for the following night. We loved learning that many of the ingredients were fresh from local farms. Entrees, hangar steak and tuna and pasta were very flavorful. The hanger steak was to die for. My husband and I split a very flavorful blue cheese and bacon romaine lettuce salad and our friend loved the buttercup squash soup. For dessert we enjoyed the butterscotch creme' brule'. We enjoyed a nice old vine Zinfandel which seemed appropriate since we were at Zin.
