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.

We booked Barndiva a few weeks before we arrived in Healdsburg and I'm so glad we did! I can honestly say the food was incredible. We were seated promptly on arrival by a very friendly hostess and our waiter arrived at our table quickly. We were never rushed and had a lovely glass of bubbly to start off a great meal. We chose the 5 course tasting menu that included an Amuse Bouche that wasn't part of the 5 courses. 1st course was a spring garden salad; 2nd course was a lobster risotto with a crispy bone marrow croquette and sweet pea foam - incredible!!!; 3rd course was Alaskan Halibut with potato puree, morels and chive blossoms - best morel I've every had; 4th was a petite filet mignon with an artichoke tart and carmelized endives; 5th court was a passionfruit lemon bar with creme fraiche ice cream and a carmelized banana.

The wine pairing was incredible as well as was the service. It was funny that this was our first time in wine country and in Healdsburg and that everyone that found out we started our stay with Barndiva said we started at the high point, and I couldn't agree more. Fantastic food!!!!

This is the chicest restaurant downtown Healdsburg, it looks like an old Barn (hence the name). the first thing that surprises you is the diverse liquor menu, my friend had a limited Rye, that was bottle 148 out of 240 produced and she said it was incredible, and unexpected to have such a knowledgable bar keep. So we here in Sonoma County not only drink wine! And the food from either the appetizers Scallops which could be man courses, to the side order of French fries which bye the way are the best in the world (and I am a FF expert). Everything wonderful and am happy to say the service has reached a 5 star rating from me. A must when your in Healdsburg!
