Wonderful outdoor lunch with great service. The waiter remembered us from last year when we made a trip to Armstrong National Park and decided to stop in Healdsburg. Yummy taco cones, interesting entrees and great cocktails. Margaritas that remind you of Mexico beach towns. Will come back again for sure.

We had a lovely meal here sitting in the rear garden. The atmosphere was very laid back, with live music that was not intrusive. Service and food excellent, and I think reasonable value for money if you do the 4 course special- it also allows you to taste more options. Very enjoyable.

We sat outside -- very pretty patio space (with heaters if needed). Our waiter Alberto was very helpful with recommendations and service was excellent. We shared 4 tequila drinks over the course of the evening: margarita de casa, padron margarita, gd reposada, and a fortaleza reposada neat. All were very tasty. We had had a late lunch, so only got... More

Delightful Yucatan food. The flavor delight your palate. The ambience is casual with a nice bar and patio. The margarita are worth a visit by themselves. We have been a number of times without a poor experience. Highly recommended.

We had dinner here during our 2013 visit to Healdsburg and this is where I wanted to return for my birthday. It was an awesome evening! Chef Mateo served up a custom six course menu just for us that was total perfection! Many thanks Mateo for making our celebration evening so special!

Food here is good and beautifully plated. Ambiance and service were excellent. The corner bar and grill was packed, so we stopped in here and so enjoyed the quiet, beauty and attention to detail. Great bar.

We had an amazing dining experience recently at Mateo's! We opted for the fixed price, multiple course menu and it was really out of this world! The chef and his staff were incredibly attentive to every detail and every course was meticulously and deliciously crafted. The filet and salmon were my two favorites but everything was delicious from the peach... More

My husband and I stopped here on our way home from a road trip. We had driven 3-1/2 hours already and needed a nice dinner. I made the reservation on Open Table while we were in the car. What started out as a promising dinner turned disappointing. I have to admit, I was a bit suspicious when the bar and... More

We met Mateo on an early morning stroll in Healdsburg when we were perusing the menu in the window and he was setting up. Mateo explained that his food reflected a combination of his Yucatan heritage, his training in French technique and his focus on sourcing only the best and freshest local ingredients. The passion with which he spoke of... More

My wife and I had the most incredible lunch and margaritas. Margarita de Casa and Margarita de Caliente- the latter has a real nice kick to it. The soup of the day-incredible! Platter and Cazon-both sensational lunch entries.

Thank Dennis H
