A really delicious meal from the celebrity and team, the Ahi Tartare was incredible. The duck main is on the large side if you aren't feeling too hungry but lovely all the same. The sea bass was nice too and a great selection of wines. The waiters and waitresses were excellent.

Wonderful food and service. Charlie Palmer prepared and served us our delicious dinner. He spent time talking with us. He was so personable and we hope to return soon. Excellent experience.

We stayed in the Hotel Healdsburg, for which the Dry Creek Kitchen is the restaurant. Staying in, we ordered room service. My cold carrot soup was delightful, but my wife's duck was gristle and too tough to cut. Definitely a disappointment. We had been to this restaurant in years past, and found it delightful, but room service struck out this... More

Dry Creek Kitchen is back on top. Impeccable service and world class food. New chef (Scotty) takes this place to the next level. Rolando (wine coordinator/Som) is, in my opinion, the best at what he does in Sonoma County. On the rare occasion that my wife can escape for a "date night" we head straight to DCK...and we are treated... More

beautiful setting, a very inviting bar scene, and excellent food and wine offerings. You can't go wrong in this Charlie Palmer restaurant. Extremely knowledgeable wine staff...they know their wines and can explain them in an understandable fashion. The meal is pricey but worth it, especially for a special occasion.

We have been coming to Healdsburg at least once a year for many years. We always stay at the Hotel Healdsburg and have one or two dinners in the course of our week long vacation at Dry Creek Kitchen. We were a little apprehensive this year because they had just brought in a new chef. We shouldn't have been. The... More

My husband surprised me with dinner here for my birthday. We had eaten here once some years ago, and I had forgotten just how special it is. The food was excellent and beautifully presented. We started with the cold carrot soup with lobster rolls. For the main course, I had sea bass with corn chutney and crisp-fried zucchini flower; my... More

We had not eaten at the Dry Creek Kitchen since Dustin Valette left to open his own restaurant. We decided to see how good it was. It is going to give Valette's a run for the money. The food was excellent and the atmosphere upscale. The fact that they have complimentary corkage for Sonoma wines is a real plus. My... More

We were greeted very warmly by the hostess. Who showed us to the best table! We had such a perfect spot out on the patio. Just where we wanted to be. It made for a perfect evening. (We made sure to show our gratitude with a good tip) The restaurant was reasonably priced as far as I was concerned. The... More

Dry Creek Kitchen is a classic California style American Bistro located on the square in downtown Healdsburg. Great wait staff and menu alternatives.
