Description: 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. In everything we do, it all starts there. Thanks for visiting.

“Simply amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

I just had an amazing lunch--my first at Barndiva. Seems that the sous chef came from the French Laundry, so everything was exquisite. The outside dining areas are charming, and the service was informed, attentive and helpful on both food and wine. Can't wait to go back!

“Healdsburg's Best!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2012

Barndiva is an exceptional restaurant! The exterior entrance and dining areas were beautiful and romantic; we dined inside which was sleek and contemporary. Our waiter was amazing! He was extremely personable and helpful with menu choices; he even gave us a gin sampling to help us select the perfect martini. The heirloom beet and endive salad was fresh and full of flavor and the Alaskan halibut was prepared perfectly. Everyone at our table of four was very pleased by the superior quality of the food and service. We dined in four other Healdsburg restaurants and it was hands down our favorite!

“Definitely Worth a Visit”

I get the feeling there aren't too many "bad" restaurants in town. We had an excellent meal at Barndiva. The service was great. Food was delicious with fresh ingredients. Highly recommend.

“Kind of sad about this :(”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

Went for a large family brunch. They forgot our table even though we were in the center and had placed our order first. No apologies after we were served a good 45 minutes after everyone else. Poached eggs were hard-boiled. Wanted to really like it! Very cute setting!

“Barndiva serves up a barn burner of a meal!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2012

Had cocktails and dinner that were fantastic! The knockout drink of the night was called the Flirt. It was like a spicy margarita. If you like heat, you gotta try this drink. Other standouts included their tomato soup, beet salad, crispy chicken and halibut. Service was friendly and attentive. Our water glass never sat empty. Dessert looked awesome but as always too full for it! Total without tip but with 2 cocktails, appetizers and entrees was $115. A pretty good value for a more upscale dining experience. Highly recommend this if you are in Healdsburg for dinner. They have a pretty big wine list too.
