Was hungry for Mexican food for lunch .. and also love spending time in Mayan areas .. so this was a wonderful surprise just 2 blocks off the Square. Do not expect the standard Mexican menu of tacos and enchilados. This is Mayan/Mexican at the gourmet level. The menu wasn't extensive .. but every single dish sounded awesome. I had... More

Mateo is a creative, enthusiastic, and incredibly knowledgeable chef. His pairings are fresh, authentic, and WOW your palate. You will love the creative items on the menu which are to die for! The filet with black olive mashed potatoes was excellent, the mushroom crostini out of this world, and his salads and desserts unlike any other. Mateo takes pride in... More

Did a wine and food pairing in Sonoma. Mateo's was on the list. The owner, Mateo was on hand to show us mushrooms that would be on the menu for the night. Fresh. We decided to return for dinner, and are very glad we did. Not your typical Latin food. Fresh LOCAL and seasonal indigence. Worth a trip back.

Mateo is not only a great chef, he also runs an exceptional eating establishment. From freshly harvested mushroom dishes, to attentive wait staff, to superb quality foods, this is one of the best restaurants! We enjoyed nearly 3 hours of an exceptional dining experience. We may fly back to the Sonoma area just to eat here again!!

This is supposed to be upscale sophisticated Mexican food. It maybe but it is just ordinary to me and very expensive for what you get. But, what do I know? It has survived and appears to be thriving.

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.

Thank ScoutGoldCoast
