Diner Reviews
  • "The amuse-bouches are excellent, the Chef's menu with the wine pairing was impressive. Except for the abalone, which was less than perfect every item on the menu was delicious. Madrona Manor continues to be an excellent spot for romantic dining and pure culinary pleasure. They certainly deserve their Michelin stars."

  • "This was our second time at Madrona Manor. We brought our daughter who was home from graduate school in NYC and who frequents fine dining in that city as well as San Francisco. We were ALL so pleased and delighted with every aspect of our dining experience at Madrona Manor. The food was outstanding in it's subtlety and interesting/often surprising flavors. The presentations were just beautiful - mirroring the beautiful surroundings on which the Manor resides. The service was absolutely wonderful - on top of everything, and warm and friendly. We were further taken by the integrity of the restaurants staff in catching a mistake we made with gratuity which could have easily been overlooked to their advantage. An absolute favorite."

  • "The food was creatively light and natural, with some of the ingredients used grown from their own herbs garden located behind the Manor. The cheese choices were beautifully presented and accompanied by dates, nuts and dries fruits. It's great wine list showcased revered local producers that heighten the dining experience. We really enjoyed ourselves and felt that we had discovered a gem in the middle of a valley."

  • "Our dinner at Madrona Manor was hands down the best dinner either of us had ever eaten, beating out some pretty serious competition. We would fly back to Sonoma just for dinner! Everything was perfect."

  • "We celebrated our 40th anniversary here and was from start to finish a wonderful experience. We were seated on their outdoor patio, very relaxing atmosphere, service was impeccable, the food amazing. We chose to go with the 6 course menu so we would have more variety and taste from each other's plate. I believe we had at least 8-10 amuse bouches and even though small bites it still adds up and was just about the perfect amount for me. Courses and amuse bouches were presented in an innovative way and there was not 1 dish we did not like. Special touch was that on the top of the menu it had a "Happy 40th anniversay", nice touch. We will definitely return here one day"

  • "Dining here is truly a dining experience. In addition to the menu, the staff brings little surprise additions to your table. The service is outstanding. Mu husband didn't care for one course on the menu and didn't finish it. The staff noticed, asked about it and brought him a substitute for that part of the menu-we didn't even ask! Wonderful experience!"

  • "Jesse's food was, as usual, exceptional. The setting is romantic. There were a few hiccups in the service that did not do justice to the quality of the food--incorrect flatware for one course, a second amuse bouche brought, which we had already been served. While these are minor glitches, the food and setting are so exceptional that they deserve the same level of service. Despite these glitches we will be back."

  • "Absolutely marvelous. The setting in the mansion is beautiful with seating indoors in different rooms and outdoors on a large veranda. We were outdoors and loved it. The food was creatively prepared and sublime. One of the finest meals i have had in the past year."

  • "Our a la carte dinner for two with two glasses of wine each came out to $425 with tip. We spent much less than that for a superior meal with equal ambiance at Auberge Du Soleil and pay less than that for a full dinner at top restaurants in NYC like Bouley and Jean Georges."

  • "Madrona Manor gets better and better. We dine there periodically (our favorite special occasion place). The food is imaginative and beautifully served. Madrona Manor is the best restaurant in Healdsburg by a wide margin. Several dishes on the multi course menu stood out for us. The onion veloute is always supurb and the salmon was impeccable, as was the beef. The service is friendly and professional. Our only suggestion for "improvement" is that an optional four-course menu be available for those like us with lighter appetites. While none of the courses is too large individually, they do add up, especially with all of the delightful amuse bouches. I would rather not be so full that I can't properly appreciate every bite. "

  • "Just when you think it's perfect, it gets better. Beautiful setting - porch looking out on the garden. Try the rabbit - juicy and tender. One of our favorites is the egg-shell served amuse bouche - delicious and unusual. Signature desert is the cart a glace - ice cream made at the table. They can manage anything from small dinners to large groups."

  • "My fiance and I recently decided to get married at Madrona Manor because of the beauty of the grounds and the great reputation of their restaurant and service, but wanted to have dinner there at least once before finalizing everything. Without any hyperbole, I can say with certainty that it was the best meal of my life. The food is memorably flavorful, creative, and gorgeously presented by an impeccable staff that is extremely polished and thoughtful. My fiance and I were so impressed by the team behind this meal, and are very much looking forward to our wedding here next year!"

  • "The service was impeccable. The staff was very knowledgeable about the foods. Each dish was tasty with many of them being very exotic. We enjoyed the whole experience, the ambiance was very quiet and romantic, the food amazing, and the service was as good as it gets."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "Three of us ate here and were extremely disappointed. They put us in an outdoor space that was heated with heat lamps and it was very uncomfortable and by the end of the evening downright cold. The food was OK. Extremely small portions. The lamb was touch and I couldn't eat it. The wine was really good. The service was chaotic with so many different servers, it was not well done. This is an extremely pretentious restaurant. I do not recommend."
    Dined on 5/2/2014
  • "Very well done flavorable food, but hardly enough of any one thing to get more than a smidgeon of a taste, even by small-bites-high-end-food standards. Fortunately, the prix fixe includes a cheese course, where they finally give you decent portions so you don't leave feeling hungry."
    Dined on 4/25/2014
  • "The food ingredients are fresh, but the execution is not very memorable. For the whole "Grand Dame" experience, I only remember the scallop and the beef dishes. The lobster dish is a big miss, just so so plain sweet. How can you go wrong with lobster? The staffs marching (yes, really marching style) around is a big distraction. I had dinner in Europe before, and I hardly notice the staffs of the restaurant."

  • "It is all worth it. Well orchestrated meal. And Chef Jessied came to serve the amuse bouche, which is a nice touch. Best tasting I ever had."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "Each dish was prepared with special attention to every ingredient, resulting in intense and wonderful flavors. The service was attentive, something happening every minute, whether the amuse-bouches or the palate cleansers. Every dish was explained as well. We had the 6-course prix fixe, and it was a bargain. This meal in a ig city would cost much more. Congratulations to the staff for this incredible achievement."

  • "My husband and I settled on the 6 course menu. I must emphasize that every dish was exquisite visually and the service was impeccable. The use of ingredients was very creative. We were served with MANY amuse bouche during the entire dinner. Firefly Squid - these are cute little tiny whole squids that I did not enjoy. The chilled Delta Asparagus tasted clean and very refreshing. The Onion Veloute was the highlight of the meal while the Caramelized Artichokes were decent. The mushroom risotto was solid, and the black cod just melted in your mouth. The roasted lamb was tough, and the Wagyu beef was not worth the $35 supplement. The cheese cart was quite a show. The Dip & Dot cheesecake was a must, and the ice cream was very good."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "We have watched for years as this restaurant has gotten better and better. It is now the favorite place for special occasions or just for a quiet romantic supper. Wonderful, creative food. Best wine list in Sonoma County. Fresh ingredients from their garden. A beautiful, flower-filled landscape. One of the best features is that they do not turn over tables. Your table is your table for as long as you wish to stay."

  • "This is my 6th or 7th time at Madrona Manor and I must say that each time has been unique and individual. The service has always been friendly and impeccable without being overly stuffy or pretentious. The food flavors are delightful and complex. I particularly enjoyed the young cheese server who was so serious and intent on his mission to provide just the right information and serving size. Great sense of humor and yet, still knowledgeable and simply into his providing us with interesting tidbits about each cheese. Sommelier was friendly and wanted to make sure we tasted before purchasing, to ensure we truly enjoyed. As with each previous dinner this most recent experience rates among my best!"

  • "My husband took me here for my big 60! The grounds of the Madrona Manor in the month of March were beautiful and meticulously kept with tulips and flowers everywhere. The wait staff was attentive and friendly. They knew ahead of time it was a special birthday and prepared a "memory" menu saying Happy Birthday Linda with the list of menu items. We had the" Chef's Grade Dame" and in addition to the menu the chef prepared many tastes of additional interesting items and the presentation was just out of this world. Highly recommend for a special occasion. Even the bar area( if you can call it that) was very elegant to start your evening off with a delicious cocktail."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "Our experience at this wonderful restaurant was exceptionally SUPER GOOD! The meal paring and the wait staff was just outstanding. They treated us as special guest and for our 40th anniversary it was special; the wine was excellent and the setting was also excellent."

  • "Perhaps my expectations were too high since I had one of the best meals of my life there 2 years ago. We had the six course chefs recommendation. Some of the courses were excellent, but some of the nibbles they brought out between courses were on leaves and tasted like grass. The lamb was a real disappointment - overcooked and lacking in flavor."

  • "I can't say enough about Madrona Manor! The service was excellent! So friendly, attentive and knowledgable. It all started great- our reservation was for 8:45 but we optimistically strolled in at 6:30 and they were able to seat us then- so pleased by the luck of that. From the beginning each member of the staff that visited the table was so cool and fun. Not often seen at most 'fancy' places. The food and the many gifts were delicious and perfectly made. I cannot wait to return! :)"

  • "Superlative over use can be off-putting and actually defeat its intent, however, one cannot be overly effusive when commenting on the Madrona Manor. Whether you stay at the mansion or just dine there, you will not be disappointed. Each of the rooms are truly special, and the restaurant is without doubt one of California's finest. In short, go. Stay for a visit and dine at the restaurant. You will never forget it."

  • "We went to Madrona Manor for Thanksgiving dinner. Other places that we love were already booked so we decided to try Madrona Manor. It is beautiful. The grounds quite lovely even in the dark. The four of us all felt that for the price we should have gotten more. Very small portions. Every one was disappointed. Nothing ventured nothing gained. We won't go back on a holiday. There are other restaurants in the area that do Thanksgiving at a better price and quite delicious."

  • "I am impressed, Madrona Manor you take the award for best restaurant in Sonoma County. A hidden gem tucked awake in Healdsburg. One of the most beautiful venues I have ever dined at: very classic & regal environment. Service is impeccable & food is beyond my initial expectations. Favorites: Amuse Bouche = Egg Froth Course = Local Urchin Course = Carnaroli Risotto w/truffles The staff here are friendly as you would expect at a restaurant like this. What set them apart from the rest were their playful interactions during the service. At the end of service the Executive Chef, Jesse Mallgren went table to table to thank the patrons and to ask for any feedback."

  • "Beautiful setting and grounds, the manor is eye candy. Friendly and attentive wait staff. Amazing menu with food focused on flavor, presentation, aroma, and texture. Every course an experience. Ambiance lovely but not stuffy. Four hours felt like 15 minutes we enjoyed our time so much. I'd have to say it came very close to our dining experience at Laserre in Paris. One star Michelin well deserved! The chef is very talented."

  • "Located in a historic house, Madrona Manor has wonderful food. Basically, the menu has two tasting menu options: one where you compose your own by picking one of three options for each of the five courses and the second that is a chef's selection. Both have optional wine pairings and optional extras for some courses. I would have like a few more choices, but everything I had was spot on."

  • "We visited MM on Valentines Day. The rooms were set for couples throughout. The Old California/Sonoma County atmosphere is just right for a romantic dinner and the food in variety and composition was tops. The young people serving at MM are well trained and enthusiastic...but not overbearingly so. We had the fixed menu and each course surprised in sophisticated composition and presentation and rewarded the palate. MM continues to be a favorite of ours for special occasions. The wine list, of course, is extensive. Oh...the mixologist is tops so don't hesitate to try one of the house specialties."

The food was absolutely delicious, we had the four course dinner that had a variety of amuse bouches between courses! We tasted items we never knew existed! The presentation of the food was quite artistic, the service was wonderful, very friendly and engaging wait staff. Not an inexpensive evening but well worth every penny! We will be back!"

Their remarkable and inventive chef Jesse Mallgren, is meticulous in his presentation and his combinations of delicious flavors. We chose to do the tasting menu, and were quite blown away by each of the eight-plus courses we were served. In the three times we've done this menu, there has never been anything remotely similar, kudos to Chef Jesse!!! Our menus were personalized for our occasion, the wine list was outstanding, the entire friendly staff was involved in the meal, and most of all, the meal itself was unforgettable and awe inspiring."

  • "The Madrona Near My Homa: I have lived in town 12 yrs, first visit. Your place is very like the departed Cyrus in approach and price, with better ambience. Odd that it was so hard to get a reservation online. When I was there, you had a score of empty tables in the various rooms. The food was INTERESTING and tasty but overpriced, and you had a very limited menu (small plates only, and will it be the 5-course or the 10-course?). I did enjoy the meal, but the food vocabulary seemed a trifle pretentious and I really needed a companion Oxford dictionary. Also, it seemed pretty hard to eat plant - based without starving(toast w/creme fraiche slathered on it).But given the >100 dollar per person menu, you really don't want to let anything get by."
