A word from Spoonbar - h2hotel
Spoonbar Chef Louis Maldonado serves a menu of clean and simple dishes honoring America’s diverse culinary influences. His artfully-crafted, market-driven cuisine of fresh, bold flavors is built around seasonally-inspired local and sustainable ingredients. The same focus carries over to Spoonbar’s cocktails which use specially sourced organically-grown herbs, fruits and vegetables with an emphasis on locally and domestically produced spirits.

Freeform tables made from reclaimed acacia surround a long, communal table crafted from a split tree. Splashes of color—from the turquoise Eames chairs to the golden floral three dimensional wall art—brighten the open space like dappled sunshine filtering through summer leaves. On warm days and evenings the restaurant’s Cantina doors open up to sidewalk dining.

Diner Reviews
  • "We were staying at H2hotel and decided to eat at Spoonbar. We were very underwhelmed with our experience. We started off with a cocktail at the bar, which was great. We should've sat here and had small plates. Instead, we stuck to our reservation and were sat at our table. Our service was slow which was surprising considering the restaurant couldn't have been over 25% full. We ordered a 3 apps (the snap pea app was good, as was the bread. We didn't enjoy the beet app). I got the beef entrée (nothing noteworthy) and my fiancé had the lamb ribeye (would not recommend). Our bill was around $150, which is pretty typical dining bill for us, but not worth it considering our experience."

  • "For an adventure in pretentiousness, an evening at Spoonbar provided us with laughs throughout the meal. From abuse of language in the menu to over salted mains, I won't return to Spoonbar. I think I liked it better when there was a gas station on the property."

  • "The dining room is open to the outside! It was so lovely. We loved the pris fixe 4th of July menu. Service was friendly and fun but not stuffy or overbearing. Our only "complaint" was there was so much food we couldn't even try it all!"

  • "The service was excellent. Broccolini with quinoa was outstanding, as well as the chicken dish. We also enjoyed the citrus avocado salad. The only dish we weren't thrilled over was the lamb rib eye, which had way too much fat for us, however the flavors were inventive. All of the dishes had their own unique flair, with unique ingredients you don't normally find. We were trying to 'guess' some of the ingredients and were pleasantly surprised. The only thing we thought was a distraction was the funky furniture and hotel guests using the restaurant as a walkthrough to the pool, in swimsuits and towels."

  • "I planned my husband's sixtieth birthday dinner for eight people at Spoonbar. We were delighted with a tasty four course meal. Each course had three different unique plates. So in total we sampled twelve delicious choices. The service was truly outstanding. Very attentive to all our needs. Overall we had an excellent experience!"

  • "This place is great.each time we come the menu has a few different items on it.We usually order about 5-6 dishes and split them. The sopes with goat cheese and radish were great as was the latest version of the Chef Flight of seafood which included the mysterious native clam of Washington State - Geoduck.The marinated cucumber and baby beets were quite tasty as well.Be sure to try some of the cocktails - they are excellent as well.We have tried several of the nicer restaurants in Healdsburg and this is our favorite."

  • "We have been here several times and it is GREAT.They have awesome house recipe cocktails like the Mad Hattan,Sleeping Beauty (did not make us sleep however) and the dessert cocktail Lavender Club.This time we had the Thai Boudin and broccolini which were both excellent.The Chef's Flight of seafood was stupendous each of the five helpings of seafood come in two bite sizes - perfect for sharing.The King Salmon and Ribeye were both excellent as well.Great place for sharing.Keep it up!"

  • "We visit Sonoma Cty 3-4x/yr on multi-day visits; 55 different restaurants over the last 4 yrs (including Cyrus 2x). Spoon Bar is amazing, reminds us of Cyrus before it became stuffy and pretentious. Chef Maldonado has a deft hand with his seafood-oriented menu: light, elegant, and beautifully balanced. Black cod melted in the mouth but had a perfect crispy skin with great accompaniments. Salmon with chorizo wasn't overwhelmed by the sausage; a magnificent Columbia River filet (the best salmon next to Copper River). Desserts were perfection; a Flying Goat coffee & chocolate dessert was the best combo of these two flavors we've ever had in 45 yrs. Bravo, Chef! (And the service was very good too)"

  • "Our second visit to Spoonbar was a delightful experience. The food is innovative, the flavors are intense and the ambiance is sophisticated but comfortable. We will be coming back."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "This was our fourth or fifth time having dinner here, and it was as good as ever. They presented us with a Chef's prix fixe menu but we chose instead to order from their regular menu. Every choice we made was remarkable. We enjoyed the broccolini vegetable dish (with shaved cauliflower, olives and baby kale) so much that we ordered a second one. Chicken roulade is so good that it completely transforms the notion of having chicken for dinner. The bar is creative and sensible in their combinations rendering cocktails that are a different take on some of one's old favorites, but oh so good."

  • "We had a drink here before and the restaurant was packed. So on a return trip opted to dine...certain wait staff were lovely...but got the feeling we were imposing when we asked for the "wine pairing chef tasting menu option " for all of us.so don't give us that menu with those options if there is a possibility its too late to serve it. I think we all thought we should have stayed in the bar where the staff were friendly and delightful...just sayin'"

  • "we sat in front room which is open to the air. Sitting in this rom was like sitting in the garden. tables spaced apart for privacy. food portions were small but enough for me. Presenttion was great aand food was delicious! There were so many people waiting on us that we felt like royalty."

  • "Beautiful spot in downtown Healdsburg. We had made a reservation well in advance of our trip but perhaps had not done our research or would know how we would feel after a day in the wine country. This restaurant was not what we wanted that particular evening. The menu is very fancy and gourmet. Sometimes we are up for that but this night we wanted a hamburger. We had a glass of wine and a couple of appetizers and went down the street."

  • "Great music venue during Healdsburg Jazz festival week. They were probably a little overwhelmed by the crowds. Limited menu but great wine list and cocktail selection"
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "Our wait person was wonderful, attentive, more than prompt with our meal, helping us keep track of time to get to our performance. Food is over the top, tortured in the sense of everything being highly stylized, ingredients are exotic, uber special, and then grated, pummeled, spun, whisked, emulsified, served with other ingredients similarly adorned and possibly disguised. All of it delicious, highly refined and quite a bit too precious for this rustic diner. Recommend it highly if slightly pretentious is your thing. And the drinks are fun and yummy."

  • "Louis Maldonado's menu offerings are interesting and flavorful. Mesquite smoked black cod was sublime and the rib eye with spring pea purée was outstanding. The food presentation and service were both excellent."

  • "Spoonbar recently appeared on the SF Chronicle's Top 100 Restaurants list. We have had cocktails there several times over the past few years, but never stayed beyond drinks. My wife and I recently spent a night in Healdsburg again, and decided to give Spoonbar a try for dinner. With soooo many good restaurants in town, it is difficult to make a choice but I guarantee you won't go wrong here! Cocktails are still good, the apps are very special, and the main courses were excellent. Everything is locally sourced and the chef makes the best of the season's bounty. Something for everyone, including vegans, vegetarians and carnies! I would definitely go back. Spoonbar is one of the top 5 restaurants in Healdsburg!"

  • "Was not impressed with the offerings. Had avocado "salad " that included mushrooms and 3 leaves of gem lettuce. Chicken roulade was moist but creme fraiche on the plate added nothing. Grilled asparagus overdone and lost its flavor. "
    Dined on 5/29/2014
  • "Chef Louis fulfills the promise he exhibited on Top Chef! His menu is creative; every bite delicious! The menu contains an amazing array of locally sourced ingredients put to excellent use by Chef. The restaurant is a contemporary vision, yet maintains a level of comfort usually missing from modern spaces. The service is impeccable; staff is knowledgeable, attentive, smiling, gave superb recommendations and paced our dinner perfectly. We spent a week in Napa and Sonoma counties, had many fabulous meals but Spoon Bar was truly the best! A gem in Healdsberg! Not to be missed!!!"

  • "My wife and I were up from San Francisco for our wedding. We stayed an additional night to relax and have a nice meal just the two of us at Spoonbar, which we’ve been looking forward to trying. Overall the food and the cocktails were great and definitely worth going back for, but only if we can have a different server. San Francisco has an amazing food scene, which we try on a regular basis; however, our waiter judged us as amateurs. When my southern wife asked him about an item on the menu, he concluded with saying that it included “creme fraiche, which is kind of like ranch”. We know what creme fraiche is, and it is not like ranch. He was also inattentive, and I had to pour my own wine throughout the dinner, a pet peeve of mine. "

  • "I can't say enough about how amazing this restaurant is! Every dish exceeded my expectations, and I had very high expectations going in. I would go here every time I am in town, and would recommend this experience to anyone."
    Dined on 5/23/2014
  • "The food was relatively bland - certainly not worth the price. With all the good restaurants in the Bay Area, this one needs to step it up. The atmosphere is fabulous though. Our services was very slow; we had to ask three times to get my husband's drink (which we received 40 minutes after the first time we asked) and the server forgot the appetizer, so an hour after ordering it we had to ask about that too. All told, we were very disappointed."
    Dined on 5/25/2014
  • "We have dined at Spoonbar probably a dozen times since it first opened. We always liked the concept, but the food and execution have gotten better and better. Now it is reliably one of the best restaurants in Healdsburg, in our view. The star of this meal was the avocado salad with mushrooms and gem lettuces. Both my husband and I had this dish (he wanted the carrots but they were out). This was a surprising and delicious combination. My husband had the black cod and I had the ocean trout for our next courses. Both were done with imagination. The beginning cocktails were excellent as well. We were not rushed and all was well timed. The service has always been first rate."

  • "I CANNOT believe this place made it into Bauer's Top 100 list. In short, the HUGE attitude (ego?) of the chef permeates everything in the restaurant. No food substitutions, despite there being practically NOTHING my celiac friend could eat. Could the chef leave off a sauce off the salmon? NO, he doesn't do that. Could the chef just emit one topping from a salad? NO, he doesn't do that either. Our server was sweet but the constant reminder that the chef only likes to do things his way or the highway in this day/age/location is shocking. NO eagerness to please, TOO stuck up/fussy. Like I said, the server was sweet but the drinks and food came out VERY slowly. If you like to have a good, fun & relaxing meal eat anywhere else."

  • "Portions are tiny--don't even try to share. Pacing of food was awful. Entree 1 arrived 15 min before the other. Waiter was apologetic but how does that happen?"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "This is at least our 4th meal at Spoonbar, & once again it didn't disappoint. The wait staff were friendly & attentive, the food fresh & top notch, and the wine list well appointed. Loved the open air setting, but never felt over-exposed. Really a gem in a town filled with top notch restaurants."

  • "We recently dined at Spoonbar while in the Sonoma valley. The interior design was interesting. It had a hopping bar. The restaurant opened out onto the street so it had an open air feel. The service was attentive. Four of us had dinner and really enjoyed our food. Each dish had the meat done two ways. I felt this approach was less successful with the lamb. I enjoyed the braised lamb but did not care for the flavour of the lamb saddle. The wine selection was excellent. "
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "We were seated by the host and waited for over 20 minutes before anyone acknowledged us, despite the fact that numerous servers walked by and made eye contact. Finally the manager came over and gave us menus and took drink orders, but did not apologize for being forgotten about. It took another 20 minutes to get the drinks, which were very good, but by that time we were really annoyed. We opted for the tasting menu and my husband added the wine pairing. The food was good, but microscopic. I'm not kidding, we were starving when we got home and had to make sandwiches. We are typical wine country foodies and this has NEVER happened to us before. When we received the bill, about $300, not even one drink had been comped. We won't be back."

  • "Repeat client, surprised by downsizing of portions. The five of us all agreed we would need to get some additional food after dinner (and did). Second surprise was the server not suggesting that some of the appetizer salads a couple of the diners wanted split, were capable of being split in a meaningful manner. We like the space and the bar and will return for drinks but take our dinner business elsewhere in the future."

  • "We have dined here twice and absolutely love this place! The food is fancy and fun! Prepared and presented in unique (at least to us) ways that are a delight. The service is amazing from the warm welcome to the short, professionally delivered explanations as each course is served. Great cocktails and a wonderful wine list, as well. We were never rushed and enjoyed a leisurely, finely tuned meal! "

  • "Some of the bites we had in our dinner were really great, but the portions were tiny. Were we expecting huge portions? Of course not. But we weren't expecting miniscule portions either. The flight of fish was terrific (well, 3 of the 4 bites were), and our mains (halibut and trout) were very well cooked and tasty. Still, we were a bit put off by the miniscule portions. "
