Spoonbar is one of our very favorite restaurants. The food is so exceptional and different. We always have to ask for an
explanation of one or two items or preparations, nothing ordinary. Presentation is beautiful. And the food...you have to
try it. The service is superb.
We will return asap!

We have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. The menu changes out serveral items during a month and follows seasons; so always new things to try. Interesting fusion of asian and California cuisine.... Great service.

4th of July Feast
we experienced a specialty menu prepared for 4th of july which was very creative and unique -- we loved the salad and the chicken - the staff was very accomodating and immediately addressed any special requests -- there was a lot a lot of food and all of it was delicious -- loved the creativity!

Fun on the 4th
Wonderfully done "picnic" like meal. Clever presentations of traditional
American favorites, from the watermelon, corn bread, fried chicken, ribs and potato salad.
The habernero mash for the chicken (hot sauce) was dynamite!
The popsicles to end the meal were a delightful touch.
Great value for the price, and the band was awesome.

We went for lunch.
Lovely space, inventive food, good wine pairing.
Dining room opened up to the sidewalk in downtown Healdsburg.
Better than expected for a hotel restaurant.

Everything we ate and drank was incredible. We started with the warm breads with got milk butter and mushroom cream. Then we had the warm romano salad which was extremely tasty. The special for the night was a lamb dish that consisted of a rack, a shoulder and a slow cooked braised piece, one of which was wrapped in pastry. It was served with coffee dusted red baby beets, roasted scallions and a mole sauce with lamb jus. The lamb was from the local Preston vineyards. We finished with a peach and blackberry sorbet with roasted blackberries and walnuts. All of this was paired with a 2008 Margerum Syrah. The service was excellent and the sommelier, Joe, was very knowledgable and helpful. Thanks to Rich at Dry Creek for suggesting we eat here!

Great location, food and feel!
We went there for a nice romantic dinner and were seated one row away from the opened sliding wall which allows you to be inside, but brings the outside in. Basically, we were just off of the sidewalk and could watch all the action on the quaint street. It was wonderful. While we were there, a large table for twenty was put together for what appeared to be a birthday. the bar was active with bar stools inches from the sidewalk. The architecture of this restaurant is fabulous! Speaking of fabulous, so is the food! Very clean, delicious. We had sashimi and split our dinners of scallops and pork terrine, then shared dessert. We're foodies and loved Cyrus and love Dry Creek Kitchen. Now, we LOVE Spoonbar! Can't wait to come back!

Delicious & Modern
Spoonbar had a unique style of food, farm fresh with delectable flavors and excellence service. Try the clams and sausage or the branzino. Save room for the dessert, it's totally worth itQ

surprising yet fantastic
Upon first viewing the menu my party was somewhat dubious about some of the food combinations, yet each dish was phenomenal. Portion size for each was filling. We shared the panna cotta with pistachio sponge cake and the peanut butter-banana mousse for dessert and both were unusual and delicious. The dishes appeared to be slightly expensive at first view but we decided they were well worth the price! We dined on a beautiful weekday evening and the walls were opened to the sidewalk, giving even interior tables an open-air feel. We will be back!

Good food and amazing drinks!
Spoonbar is a great addition to Healdsburg. The food was very good and their specialty drinks were amazing. I had one of the best Dark 'n Stormies I have ever tasted. All drinks are made from scratch with about 10 minutes of focused labor added to each cocktail!! I would highly recommend Spoonbar...especially on a hot summer night as they open all the doors to give the restaurant a nice open air ambiance.

Great atmosphere, great food.
I love the modern atmosphere here. Food is great and there is a lot of variety. You can pretty much order anything and trust that it will be delicious.
8/6/2013 5:00:00 PM
If you're a food in search of new dishes and flavors this is the place for you. It's leading edge stuff. Combinations that you would never have thought of. It tests your pallet.

Though the menu is small the different foods ordered at our table were well presented, different and delicious.

Food was great.Specialty cocktails
Food was great.Specialty cocktails were excellent.Each dish was excellent and had distinct flavors that worked together.Eggs,radishes,cucumbers,clams,sourdough bread and the tuna were great.Dessert was blackberry/peach sorbet and very delicious with the recommended wine pairing.

OK food, great bar!
Very active place with outstanding mixed drinks!
Nice ambiance, but, food was just ok.
8/16/2013 5:00:00 PM
Always good; always different
The menu and the wine list as well as the cocktails change offering variety every time we go.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Worth a detour
The manager of a wine bar recommended Spoon Bar to us. We ate there both nights we were in Healdsburg. Healthy food I could eat every night and superb favors using local ingredients. Some interesting flavor combinations in some dishes and all hits. Totally satisfying, especially for the price. I wish Spoon Bar were in my neighborhood.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent vibe and energy
Excellent vibe and energy at the restaurant. My favorite dish was the tri tip!
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were unenthused by the list of dishes on the menu but totally wowed when we had them (avoided the seafood items not our thing). Each dish was extremely well prepared without exception. Service was terrific. And, these cocktails really ARE totally different and amazing. The one downside, seating in the front room, which has a real buzz, is tight. Many tables face and are on the street. We had a rear table that appeared dark until the doors were opened and we were on a very nice grassy lawn with trees behind, it was very nice and we recommend the rear for that reason.
8/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
A labor day weekend event, Hawaiian food and music was a great success. This restaurant is fun...a bar with a fun drink menu and a top rated chef. The perfect place out of many good choices in Healdsburg.

Spoonbar a Spoonful of pleasure
Great variety of food, very flavorful, fun drinks, indoor/outdoor ambience make the place a winner. Great end to a day in the wine country.
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not what we expected
Looking at the menu we expected to find many items that would suit our interest but that was not the case. The hard surfaces made for a noisy dinner even though the waitress was helpful in finding a table a little farther away from a very boisterous dinner group. Food was ok but the evening was marred by the noise level.

Great job as usual.Great vegetable
Great job as usual.Great vegetable combinations.The Octopus,Salmon & Tuna were outstanding.My wife and I love this place.

This was our first time to Healdsburg and the Spoonbar restaurant and it was a wonderful experience! Our server Gino was so personable, friendly and spot on with his advice and service. Loved the portions and the different course offerings. My husband had the roasted flank steak and I had the salmon and both were cooked to perfection. Our favorite appetizer was a special, heirloom tomato tartlet which was devine. And I have to say the sliced veal heart on mini marjoram english muffins was so different but absolutely delicious! We had to try a dessert and really enjoyed the winter luxury squash flan and the pumpkin seed brittle garnish was to die for! Definitely ate too much but had to try all the wonderful things on the menu!
9/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lovely dining experience. They open the wall of glass doors so you feel like you are outside, but still have the music & candlelit ambience of the restaurant. Tried some new food; Kanpachi tartare with corn pudding was amazing!! Scallion biscuits with roast chicken infused honey was tasty. The sunchoke & rice porridge with tatsoi and grated cashews and chives was delicious!! Great, friendly service.

Top 100 restaurant bucket list
We were very satisfied with the entire experience. Looking forward to watching Top Chef with your chef as a contestant. Food flavors tickled the tongue, especially the avocado/cherry tomato salad. Warm romaine salad was to die for.
10/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
Beautiful atmosphere. Was surprisingly lively for a Monday night.
We had the lavender honey chicken wings, crispy guinea hen and the flank steak. We will definitely visit again if we are ever in the area.

I used open table to make reservations for our group of 5 for a Saturday night. There were quite a few options but I selected Spoonbar based on other recommendations and do not regret it at all. We had very good, almost excellent, service by all the staff including the manager. The manager over heard one of us discussing why she made her food choice (many "Top Chef" contestants get kicked off because of it) and shared that the current chef is on the current season of "Top Chef." When we asked if we could meet him, we were told yes and were able to meet the chef—who was quite gracious! It made our night! The food was quite good and consistent. A few of us ordered the flank steak and each plate was portioned and styled the same.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great drinks, tasty and strong! And the food is notable as well. Went with friends and we all had a great time.

This was our second time at
This was our second time at this great restaurant bar. This time we skipped the entree's and went Tapas style. The Chef's Flight of Fish Preparations was truly amazing. Every preparation was vibrant and flavorful while completely supporting the taste of the fish meat. A Foodie's delight. We finished by sharing two excellent vegetable dishes. The wait staff was knowledgeable and excited to be delivering such good eats. This restaurant/bar is one more good reason to go to Healdsburg.
10/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and vibe
This is a fun and lively restaurant with good food, attentive wait-staff, and great drinks. The Moscow Mule is a must-have!
10/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent restaurant using local in-season ingredients, even local-grown wheat in their delicious bread. Amazing cocktail menu.

Wine country vacation
We loved this place. The food was delicious. The drinks were well balanced and tasty. Atmosphere was exciting, but not overwhelming. We were a group of 4. Two couples around 30 on vacation and this place hit the spot.
11/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
It was good to try unusual dishes. All that the four of us did try were super!
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
This place has a fantastic cocktail list and a really fun bar if you want to just grab a drink. The space is nice and modern, tucked next to the hotel. Food was very good - lots of interesting things, although nothing knocked our socks off. It was good, tasty, and a fun spot to try.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great place before ,now, & then
Server was enthusiastic & engaging.Dishes were great winter squash,poached egg,radishes & potatoes - very colorful & delicious and braccallini were great.The desserts were exquisite - peanut butter mousse with smoked chocolate & meringue pieces & the luxury squash flan - just awesome.My parents BOTH are ONLY children and do not share well-do not bring people here that are like that - this restaurant is made for people that like to share.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
A great meal
…& great service, in spite of a power outage. I wasn't sure that the prawns in "rice porridge" were going to work for me, but I thoroughly enjoyed the preparation. It was a lighter and simpler preparation & perfect for the cold & windy evening. They were able to accommodate my husband's need for a gluten-free meal. Would definitely return.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonderful Birthday Experience!
The food was amazing (chicken Roulade and fish tasting were to die for), the service was impeccable, and the drinks were off the charts. It was one of the best meals I've had in years! We will DEFINITELY be coming back as often as we can. Yummmmm!
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Second time a charm as well
We ate at Spoonbar with some friends & enjoyed every moment. The service at Spoonbar is the best ever, the food ingredients were in season & used in inventive & delicious ways, & the atmosphere was expansive & comfortable. We were glad we brought our friends here & will definitely be returning.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our favorite Healdsburg restaurant!
Spoonbar is a gourmet restaurant with reasonable prices. The menu changes often, and we have never eaten anything that wasn't completely delectable! The taste, presentation, and service are first rate. We have dined there approximately ten times, and will definitely continue to do so!
11/24/2013 4:00:00 PM
Birthday dinner at spoonbar
Really a lovely meal and place but it would be very loud on the weekends and when the bar is hoping.
11/25/2013 4:00:00 PM
We met our adult daughter & husband for dinner here on Thanksgiving-- we came from Ukiah, they from Berkeley. No grandkids this year, & 2 sons elsewhere. We made an excellent choice! Perfect from beginning to end ( best seating in back garden room with white tablecloths to excellent coffee.) We brought our own Prosecco, they provided an ice bucket. We loved the ' table sharing' apps & sides style. And all the food was delicious. We will definitely be back again.
