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.

Our dinner at Barndiva was one of the highlights of our trip. Excellent food, all locally sourced. Our waiter did a great job in pairing wine with each course, and was very friendly and accomodating. Decor is modern, and they do have a nice patio area for seating, although we sat inside. Very nice wine list as well. We would definitely go back. A little pricey when you throw in drinks and 3 courses, but we thought it was worth it.

We did the chef tasting menu with wine pairings. It was absolutely perfect! Will plan to visit again

My husband and I recently celebrated our 30th anniversary at Barndiva in Healdsburg, CA. Although the food was delicious, the ambiance was a bit pretentious and cold. The restaurant is very trendy and full of itself. Our waiter warmed up by the end of our dinner, but was not particularly friendly in the beginning. Although he knew it was a very special anniversary for us, he didn't even bring over a special dessert. As I said, the food was good, and the chef even made me a special vegetarian dish, but I am not rushing back.

Four of us went to Barndiva on a weeknight in late summer. The restaurant was lovely - very trendy decor. Service was good but nothing special. Two of our group had been to the restaurant before and liked it, but our experience this time was fair to middling. Three had the tomato soup with Crème fraîche. The taste was good, but the soup itself was lukewarm and disappointing. Our other dishes were just ordinary - as if they had been made in advance and were waiting in a cooler for someone to order them. The freshness you expect was missing. Certainly not worth the time or money.

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!
