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.

Our dinner on Sunday night was absolutely delicious. The gardens are so spacious and the tables so far apart, we barely noticed the other diners. My husband and I celebrated our wedding anniversary without distraction, and with a wonderful meal.

My favorite restaurant. They've got safe dining down pat, which leaves one to enjoy the cocktails, food, and wine.

They have you text in your order, which works really well!!! They add a 19% tip, so there's no need to pull out your credit card during these days of COVID-19.

I DO have a suggestion -- I would find it helpful for the restaurant to email or text me a copy of my receipt.

But otherwise everything was perfect and I'm craving the goat cheese croquettes!
I'll be back.

Another outstanding dinging experience at Barn Diva! Missed the personalized service, but the current COVID protocol was easy to work with, and all of our food/drinks came out more quickly, and more delicious than expected.

Excellent! I love the way they have modified their service to keep the servers, and their customers safe - it was the cleanest dining experience I have had, and was ver reassuring.

Thanks again for a great experience - we'll be back again soon!

Loved the new texting feature! Made communication so easy and we didn’t feel like we had to wait around for someone to walk by! The fried chicken was AMAZING and so was the salmon. The flirt was my favorite cocktail and I tried them all! ♥️ I will be back!

Due to the fact we had to order online using our phones, checkout with one tab as well as no service whatsoever once the food came...AND we were charged an automatic gratuity of 17%????? We dined at other establishments and had much better service and food. Save your money and dine elsewhere!

Fantastic food and cocktails. They were very stringent about Covid safety. You place your order by text and they bring it out to you. Beautiful presentation of all the dishes. Loved the Hamachi Crudo and the Pan Con Tomate. Everything was excellent and love the garden ambiance!

The Barndiva crew is a stellar bunch. COVID dining is always a challenge, but, honestly, for 2 hours we were allowed to escape the cold reality of the Pandemic world and ate, drank and socialized with our small group as if it were 2010. Food, wine selection, and service were fantastic. Don't miss dessert. Oh, and coffee. The coffee was excellent!

Wonderful experience. Have been to Barndiva many times, and it never disappoints. Sat in back garden usually reserved for private parties, it’s lovely. Food/wine is excellent as per usual. New service procedure due to Covid is all done via text. Very efficient. Highly recommend.

Overall great. Outside area very nice but construction on the other side of the fence was pretty annoying. Food very good. A low rating for service only because there was very little interaction with wait staff. You text your order to them from your table and they deliver it. I’d go again...

Barndiva was super cute! Think party lights strung up, vintage tables, the beautiful barn. We enjoyed the food and wine. The current setup (Sept 2020) for table service is all done via text. We weren't sure how this would go, but it was very efficient and easy. I think you do lose that human element, but if you're going with friends and don't want to be bothered, then it's perfect!

With pandemic precautions, Barndiva still has good food, just not the selection it used to have. Their precautions are notably good. You've seen most in the other reviews, but one I didn't read about was their spacing between tables & chairs. It's out in two open patios, and there was probably 15 ft at least between chairs. Also each table has a heater.

We just wanted to eat outside. The outdoor dining under the trees was so relaxing. It was quite warm but very comfortable with all the shade from the trees. Service was excellent with their communicate via text set up. And as anticipated to food and drinks were superb. Can’t wait to go back.

Even with the pandemic dining restrictions, The Barndiva staff didn’t miss a beat. The servers were attentive and helpful. The food was delicious.
We ordered and shared 4 appetizers-Brusell Sprouts, Mushrooms, Peppers and Burchettta. It was plenty of food and gave us a nice sampling of different dishes and flavors. Highly recommend Barndiva to all.

Service is non existent due to the protocols put in play relating to COVID. Text in your order, opened bottle of wine arrives at the table, no conversation or service. Food arrives, no conversation and no-one bothers to check in to see if all is well. Poor show!

I get that they had to change the service model for COVID, but I think they over-rotated to the point where the experience is really poor, compared to their peers, especially at the price. Contactless ordering, food dumped off to your table like a cafeteria, and utter indifference from the staff has really ruined this place for me. I literally have felt more welcomed and attended to at a fast food drive through. And to add a mandatory 19% service charge for literally no service is unacceptable. I used to absolutely love this place, now I can’t see myself returning anytime soon.

Barndiva is always a treat and even in the heatwave of Labor Day weekend, the beautiful large fig trees provided the much needed shade for our delicious lunch. The air was really clean in Healdsburg, in fact much cleaner than it was in Sausalito. We discovered the Purpleair App that provides the air quality ratings for each region and it really is surprising how it varies from one town to the next.....an invaluable tool. Highly recommend this wonderful family gem of a restaurant and Lukka is the best Host ever!

Cannot say enough about the spectacular food here! COVID ordering was a breeze - everything done via text messaging and very minimal contact. Food came out really quickly and it was AMAZING. The flavors were spectacular. Do t kiss the goat cheese croquettes!!! Lovely garden seating. All around great experience.
