My fiancé and I had Sunday Brunch here to celebrate our engagement and this such a wonderful experience. The duck confit and the caviar omelet were exquisite. The outdoor seating was beautiful and dog friendly. I loved it so much that I can’t wait to go again for dinner!

Enjoyed food and ambiance on a Saturday afternoon for lunch. Very disappointed after our main was cleared to be presented with check by waiter with no offer of coffee or dessert. Found out from hostess they weren’t serving dessert because their pastry chef was booked at a wedding next door. Poor planning by manager not to have figured out an alternative that didn’t require the presence of a pastry chef or perhaps instructed wait staff to offer a glass of dessert wine.

We went to Barndiva during a recent trip to Healdsburg and it was magical. We sat outside under the trees and strings of lights. The service was excellent, as was the food. We each had different appetizers and entrees - butter lettuce salad, beets, fresh tomatoes, halibut, chicken and salmon. Everything was prepared expertly and the presentation was also extremely well done. Highly recommend. We will be back!

Food was incredible on our visit through Healdsburg last week. We had the tuna appetizer, Kennebec fries, and both choose the Halibut for dinner. Service on the other hand was a little off our taste. Our server was trying to capture our dinner orders before our drinks even arrived at the table, if she would have just asked once we would have been a little more understanding, but she interrupted the second time to get the order. Overall, just felt rushed vs relaxing.

The food was an excellent quality. We got the heirloom tomato salad. And I ordered the filet, which was so tender and delicious. My husband had the halibut. It was good but he would have preferred a sauce on it. The butter lettuce salad looked very good. They have the lettuce delivered daily to make sure it is fresh. Our bill was $199, and we only ordered one glass of wine. We did have two desserts.

We had the most amazing cocktail--the Catch and Release-created by the wonderful Terra, one of the bartenders. This drink was creative, wonderful, and unique. The other bartender, Justin was also great. We had appetizers and drinks at the bar and then dinner on the patio. Check it out and especially Terra's wonderful mixology-especially the Catch and Release--although it was on the special drink menu so may not always be available.

It took approximately 30 minutes for drinks to be ordered after we sat down. Once food was ordered the server again did not return for over an hour. Sad to say, but Barndiva has gone downhill over the past decade.

My friend and I have lunch together once a month to catch up on news and whatever. We always treat ourselves well. Once before we had eaten at BarnDiva, and we thought it was time for a repeat performance. Due to local firestorms, our air quality is poor and I appreciated that they did not use the patio. Inside was airy and spacious. Our server was accommodating and the food lived up to our expectations. Another lovely lunch. Thank you!

Wonderful environment for any occasion, especially the back patio with the hanging lights. The cuisine was phenomenal, very creative, and of great value for the cost. Filet mignon was cooked to perfection, crisp on the top and bottom with a perfect warm-centered rare. Will be coming back next time I'm in Healdsburg.

Came on a recommendation from a friend and were very happy. Booked through Open Table and got a fairly late seating but came early and were accommodated graciously. The food and wine were exceptional. We were a little surprised by the prices of some of the wines but found a nice house Pinot Noir bottled by Lioco that was terrific and reasonable.

We had a lovely time. The service was exceptional. The food was really enjoyable, but it could have been even better. The Halibut should have had a sauce...needed more flavor. It was well prepared, but didn't wow. The Duck was good but not special. I guess we just want MORE from Barndiva.

The chicken was perfect! Also loved the frites! Nice desserts. Interesting fun drinks. Coffee was delish.

Loved sitting in the courtyard on a warm summer evening.

We have dined at Barndiva frequently in the past several years. It is about as charming a place as you'll find anywhere in Healdsburg. We were disappointed on Sunday by the somewhat indifferent service and food that, frankly, could have been better. I had the dungeness crab club sandwich, which came with a decent amount of crab in a sauce that made the bun soggy, way too many pickled onions, and one strip of bacon on the top. The fries, which are usually outstanding, were cold and hard, and might have been warmed up leftovers. The kale salad was...a kale salad. This isn't what we have experienced in the distant past, but have thought that things were sliding recently. We sat for quite a while and finally asked for our server to place the order, but she was busy, so another server kindly took the order. Our server was disinterested generally, which, again, has not been the norm here. We will still come to Barndiva, but are hoping that things will be brought back up to its previous high standards.

Pleasant dining but food way below expectations. The lamb was extremely small portion with little taste and the crab cakes had no taste. No draft beer served which is unheard of here in Sonoma County. Will try one more time to see if things improve. Have had much better meals here on passed occasions.
