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.

Always a wonderful experience. The service and bar menu superb. A twist of French with a farm to table freshness! Lovely ambiance and wonderful place to go with friends.

Loved sitting outside on a hot summer day underneath the wonderful canopy of trees. The service was excellent and so was the food. The brunch menu had a great selection of items even for the pickiest of eaters. I will be back!

Seated promptly for our reservation, somewhat awkward initially as we were first to be seated in an unoccupied area. Hostess asked what type of water we preferred (still or sparkling) but never brought it nor relayed info to server. Felt like an uncomfortable situation early on, but our server was great, made us feel welcomed and discussed menu items, etc. We ordered a few cocktails which were well mixed and delicious. No menu modifications are allowed (at least for weekend brunch), so be certain you’re ok with that—even simple ones like “light hollandaise” or asking for it on the side—gives the impression of there being cooks rather than a chef. Food was delicious and overall a great meal.

We enjoyed a very, very special evening birthday dinner on the front patio of Barndiva! My wife, whose birthday we were celebrating, my mother-in-law, and I received a special champagne birthday greeting from our waiter, and his excellent food and wine selection recommendations. With our waiter’s recommendations we coursed our way through appetizers, a shared salad, and delicious entrees featuring, salmon, pork, and steak. The seasonings were perfect and the presentations beautiful. Management staff and severs were extremely attentive, professional, and friendly!!! We will definitely return to Barndiva and highly recommend this restaurant for a special occasion!!!😊

Reservations were cancelled less than 24 hrs because barndiva booked a wedding party Our reservation
Was booked a month out
Then Barndiva called to offer something in a few days which didn’t wk since we were not from area
Barn diva texted again to finally try to
Take us for original time
This frustrating texting between us and them went on for sometime !
No substitutions were allowed from this limited and expensive menu
Portions are small
I feel this place is highly over rated
This was second and final time there
There are many other great restaurants
In the area

There is no question barndiva has amazing ambience. Perhaps best in town. But the food was mediocre and way too expensive for what it was. Service was great, but we were really disappointed after hearing so many rave reviews.

Loved Barndiva! Service was excellent as was the food! We ordered the hamachi crudo to start then had the burger and fried chicken sandwich. This was the perfect end to our trip to Healdburg!

Not our first time here but certainly the most memorable experience of late! Food as always solidly good but what sets Barndiva apart from others are the People who work there ! The wait staff, the bartenders, the manager .. well the whole restaurant crew makes you feel so welcome and special. We came there for dinner after getting a marriage license and they went out of their way to make this night unforgettable : they surprised us with champagne and dessert which was absolutely unexpected but certainly very much appreciated❤️. Thank you, Barndiva!

Beautiful setting on the outside patio. Food choices were creative and beautifully presented. The goat cheese appetizer was so yummy and the honey/lavender flavors made them even better. The Cacio y Pepe pasta was perfectly prepared and flavors melded well together. The highlight was an almond/peach dessert - beautifully presented and a tasty combo of crunch, smoothness and fruit! Service was perfect. Definitely would recommend for a relaxing evening with friends, great atmosphere and amazing food!

Fantastic modern-hip farmhouse-casual spot. Great service, excellent cocktails and wine list. Pricing a bit of a splurge. They don't have appetizers, which is no fun for me -- I like to try different things rather than get one big entre. Oh, well. Highly recommended for a casual wine country-y splurge.

The brunch was delicious; we had the potatoes as an appetizer and could have just made lunch out that them, they were fantastic and unique. One person had crab benedict, the other had a frisee salad and the other had the tuna tartare/ceviche; all were scrumptious and whatever they did to the frisee so it wasn't tough was great. The dessert was a chocolate pavlova that we all shared; unfortunately none of us liked it; it had an odd, cinnamon-y cookie underneath it so we left most of it. The cocktails were inspired and unique, and our server recommended a white wine that was delicious. Barndiva is definitely a place we've been before and will keep going back to!

Some many aspects of dinner were wonderful, but unfortunately a few others caused the experience to be less than exceptional. Couple of examples: menu confusingly lists salads, appetizers and main course together, and we mistakenly expected a pasta main course, which wasn’t; rigid adherence to menu offerings e.g. no options for side vegetables, no substitutions; bread is not made available, for purchase or otherwise. (I really missed not soaking up the ultra delicious plate juices.) Sure hope they can loosen up their approach a bit and make the diners’ experience the overriding consideration.
