We have gone here the last two years (of nine) and the food and setting are grossly overated. I'm not sure why folks would put themselves through this aggravation - high priced food with moderate quality and staff that would prefer to be elsewhere. They have been living off of their reputation for far too long. We won't be going... More

This weekend I took special guests to DCK and realized, sadly, that it just isn't what it used to be. I am local and check in now and then. This time it was for an important dinner. That failed big time. My first clue should have been that there were very few diners in the room. The service is no... More

The catering manager is wonderful and put together a super nice room along with personal touches. Very responsive... The food arrived cold and the meal was not up to par with my last visit. The restaurant manager was not jumping to make any accommodations or apology for the delivery of cold food. bad form for a restaurant of this caliber.... More

About two months ago we ate at the Dry Creek Kitchen after a considerable absence and were delighted with the experience. We returned last night and were disappointed. The service was inattentive. We had to ask for our waiter to have our wines poured, which are not kept on the table but in a service area. I do like that... More

I've eaten here on each of my last 4 visits to Healdsburg and each time the food and service have ben outstanding. I can't think of anything that I have not been exceptionally happy with. The food and wine paring tasting menu is a must try if you have not been here before. Be aware that you should bring your... More

We started with risotto with truffles that was superb. It all went downhill after that. I ordered a pork chop and said I wanted it juicy and not over-cooked. It was dry and flavorless. My wife ordered fish and specified cooked through . It came nearly raw. She sent it back and it returned dry and lifeless. We asked for... More

The venue was lovely; the service was smooth and the servers were knowledgeable; the presentation was spot on, In short, we were delighted in all respects until the very end, We realized that the food was simply too...

This was a first time visit, and I have to say that I doubt I will return. The service was slow and lacking attention to detail. We had to request second cocktails from the bar even though empty glasses (and the bread board) sat on the table until we asked that they be cleared. Our waiter put forth his best... More

Charlie Palmer's Dry Creek Kitchen remainas at the top of the Healdsburg fine dining experiences. Located in the center of town across from the Square, you can expect top service, tasty food prepared in an inventive fashion, a chic environment and an expansive wine list. Monday nights the restaurant features 50 wines at 50% off which attracts the locals. The... More
