“Great Concept, Great Execution!”
Reviewed August 2, 2013

I'm a wine lover AND foodie, and have always loved the concept of wine and food pairings when they are done at wineries (which is rarely, and only with an expensive reserve tasting). Kendall Jackson came up with a wonderful concept--take their wine list and build a great tasting menu around pairing it with their wines, but allowing you the flexibility of mixing and matching as well. Prices are in line with other tapas bar menus, they give you the option to do 2 oz or 5 oz pours which allows you to sample a greater variety of their wines, and the execution was wonderful--we either liked or loved every item we tried (the white chocolate cheese cake was to die for!) Our server was a delight and answered our detailed questions knowledgeably, and went back to the kitchen for questions he didn't have the answer to. Best of all, we used an Open Table promotion and ended up spending under $40 for 2 for a fabulous meal!

“Beautiful Space”
Reviewed July 20, 2013

This tasting restaurant has a beautiful decor and lovely light in the space. Service is great. Food was amazing on my June visit - the carrots, challah prosciutto panini, and cheesecake were amazing. On a return visit in July food tasted more average. Hopefully it was just a fluke, as I hope to come back on my next visit and enjoy the same fresh and delicious flavors as the first time.

“What a pleasant and happy surprising restaurant!”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

We ate at Partake at the recommendation of several people in Healdsburg. Boy, were we happy we did! It's a wonderful place. The inside is modern, sleek, yet comfortable. We loved the idea of having small bites of food and sharing. The carmelized carrots are amazing, be sure to order those. The charcuterie plate was so yummy with different meats and cheeses. We loved that they had 2 ounce or 6 ounce pours of the different Kendall Jackson wines. We shared wines and foods and walked away very satisfied, but, not stuffed. Always a good sign. The staff is very knowledgeable about all the foods and wines, and made wonderful recommendations. We sat at the window table. Do that you will be happy people watching and enjoying a wonderful dining experience.

“What a great surprise in wine country”
Reviewed July 4, 2013

We picked this after reading the ta reviews. I guess we thought it would be a wine bar with small plates. But it was so much more because most of the dishes had wine in them. What I remember most is the wine skin bread, red wine past with the Coq Au Vin, carmelized carrots, and tempura mushrooms as well as wonderful wine pairings. Atmosphere is cool and zen like.

“Wow!”
Reviewed June 14, 2013 via mobile

What an exceptional experience, best in Napa Valley! Healdsburg is a great town with free concerts on the square on Tuesday evenings fron 6 - 8pm. The KJ wine-food paring is superb! And, Max, as a server, you rock! Join the free wine club!
