MICHELIN Guide's Point of View

The MICHELIN Plate: Good cooking
Comfortable restaurant
About
It's hard to describe the Barndiva experience. And a web site is no substitution for being able to sit back and enjoy the beauty of an extraordinary space, the taste of a perfect cocktail, or the satisfaction that comes from a meal that hits all the right notes in you. Barndiva is a celebration of all things local. Our food is sourced from farmers, ranchers and small batch purveyors who live and work in the magnificent food shed surrounding us. Food is our passion and wine is our pleasure, more than 700 labels from all around the world with an infatuation for our local winemakers. In everything we do, it all starts there.

Beautiful backyard dining experience. The texting of your order is a little strange, however they were quick with our order. Pasta dish was nice. The salad was amazing. Husband had the prawns which were very tasty but a complete mess to eat.

Great outdoor setup with really good service. However, the menu is pretty standard and the food was good - not great. We really enjoyed our dinner, but there were no stand out dishes that would make us rush back.

We had a group of 6, we dined for dinner. They had everything set up outside and it was super cute. The food was really good, smaller portion size, but very flavorful. The Covid service is very hands off, and everything was done from our...cell phones. We totally understood and it was fine. Highly recommend this venue for a meal.More

We had a group of 6 for dinner at 6:30 PM. The ordering situation with Covid 19 is that you text in your order. This was not helpful as we had questions. We also had a server at our table periodically so it seemed like...a ridiculous process that just confused everything. The texting is totally unnecessary and essentially brought the entire experience down. We all ordered a pasta that they informed us was sold out - this was at 6:50 PM on a saturday..... so we ordered another pasta. They only brought 1 of the 3 original pasta orders so we had that awkward gap while people wanted to eat their HOT food. Service was also very slow. The wine selection is BOMB and we ordered expensive wine.... The salads were terrific. One of us had the black cod and it was inedible. The tomato bread was fabulous and our late pasta was good. None of us even wanted to try and order desert. Overall - sorry, but pretty underwhelmed. The food is good. The outdoor seating is nice but service and process are killing you.More

We came in for our reservation as they were closing their Sunday brunch service. We ordered right before the kitchen closed. The menu is small and pretty fancy. The beet salad was good and the breakfast sandwich was pretty tasty, but tiny. The smashed tater...side was also pretty flavorful but small. Overall quite expensive for not many options and nothing too special. The outdoor seating area was pretty though.More

Go somewhere else . Phone ordering sucks. Mushrooms dry and no flavor. Had to order potato bread for ten dollars to make it palatable. Goat cheese croquet were ok. Pork chop was dry .. no flavor or sauce to compensate... no one responsible for anything.....really thought it would be good on past reviews... but they are really dropping the ball as of now . Worst place and experience in a long time....More

Barndiva has two outdoor patios, with heaters and some covering. Everything is contactless, Ordering is by text or phone. The setting on an afternoon was wonderful and the food even better. The mushrooms, brussel sprouts and goat cheese croquettes were all tasty. The cacio e...pepe was the best I have had outside of Rome.More

Our party of four patronized Barndiva during the COVID-19 pandemic, a time when restaurants were limited to outdoor seating where tables are "socially distant," and required reservations. Upon entry (but not at making reservation), we were told a 19% gratuity would be added to the...bill; no worries as we typically tip 20% of the order. We were seated in a lovely backyard area with soft lighting among the trees, given paper menus with very limited selections (meaning only 4 different items per course) and told we had to order via text as the restaurant wanted to minimize visits of the wait staff to tables. In my view, the "texting" system did not serve its purpose as wait staff had to deliver water, drinks, food and take away dirty items. If anything, the text system was a distraction and frankly, made ordering difficult when we were there for a relaxing experience. For example, we ordered using the restaurant rules, the phone system kept auto-correcting the name of the pasta dish my husband and I ordered. I also had questions regarding the menu, but there was no one to answer my questions, and texting questions was, well, work. Beer was available only by the bottle and the Zinfandel wine I ordered was nothing to write home about, even though it was $17 a glass and we were in Sonoma wine country. While water was replenished immediately by staff, service of the items for which we paid was slow. The lady of the couple dining with us ordered the broth soup and scallops for entree and no cocktails or wine. The gentleman ordered 2 IPA beers, pork loin for entree and dessert, and my husband and I had two red wines (me) and two IPA beers (him), shishito peppers for shared appetizer and two of the same pasta dishes (the only other entree choices were scallops, pork loin and chicken). The bill for the four of us was $319, and I note the 19% was on the entire bill, including the tax and other fees. This restaurant bill was, by far, the largest of any of the meals we had had in Healdsburg during our 3-day stay (the 2nd highest was about $230 for a party of 5 and included much more food). I also note small children were permitted to run around the area, meaning they were not policed by either their parents or restaurant personnel. I give a rating of a 2 because the food was good, but balancing that with the texting, slow service and outrageous prices, a 2 is the best I will do. I do so to be fair to future prospective patrons, although I am reluctant as I appreciate restaurants are in a terrible predicament during this COVID-19 pandemic. Suffice it to say, with the other great choices of restaurants in Healdsburg, Geyserville and Santa Rosa, we will not be back.More

Finally a restaurant that I feel safe eating at during COVID times! They have the whole social distancing down so well - they take your temperature when you arrive, give you hand sanitizer, and you text your order in. The actual restaurant is stunning and...has a beautiful large outdoor area and the food is absolutely delicious. We ordered pretty much everything on the menu and we loved everything. The croquettes stood out as did the pan con tomate. Very trendy cute spot, highly recommend!More

The outdoor setting under the trees was perfect; however, the food although good lacked imagination. The text system for ordering did work well and was timely.
