“Another Local Gem lost to a Sports Bar”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

I used to really like going to F&E for a nice steak dinner- sometimes prime Rib- all served properly and at a non-Mercedes, Salmon sweater over the shoulder, no sock, tasseled loafer, tourist price.
Alas- it's become a sports bar- they knocked out walls and eliminated the majority of the better proteins. One steak dinner remains- sad though. Fish was greasy
Waitress had mathematical issues- it was straightened out- doubt I'll be back . . . .too bad

“Not for the tourists”
Reviewed November 6, 2012

This restaurant may be just an average eating place but in a "trendy", spot likes Healdsburg, it's very appreciated by the locals. It's not overpriced, the food is pretty good and the service is above average. It doesn't compare to the fancy restaurants because it mostly caters to the local population that just wants to go out and get a decent meal and a drick without feeling like they could have fed Africa for the same price.

“Great food and service”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

Good menu choices, very attentive service. Food and drinks were served quickly and everything we had was wonderful. It's a comfortable & casual atmosphere, but with food that you'd expect at more stuffy places.

“Steak House - seemed pretty samo-samo.”
Reviewed October 4, 2012

This is a tucked away spot without much parking and likely more of a local going-to place rather than a touristy restaurant from what I can see. I thought the food was overpriced for what we got, and the vegetables were not fresh even tho I asked. If they were fresh, then they were boiled to death. Too pricy for the package.

“Good Eats”
Reviewed September 26, 2012

This is an old establishment with a separate room for their bar. You can eat in the dining room or in the bar area. The food does not garner five stars, but is good, down home fare and a great place to go as long as you're not looking for a high end restaurant.
