    We have dined there before. Unfortunately the brunch was nothing to talk about. I had the hot dog. The bun was dry and hot dog really had no flavor. My husband had the omelette. Basically stuffed with butter. His salad was way over dressed. The French fries were good definitely not worth the price you pay for the food. Sorry to say this.

    If you are looking for pretentious and overpriced, you have found it. The food was delicious. It is a very limited menu - we were offered 2 fish, a beef, and duck entree. Portions are small. The $14 bread basket provided 3 rolls for a table of 4. Wine list was small, expensive and not local.

    I highly recommend the brunch menu and experience. I don't think I will be returning for dinner again. The service was intermittent (ie: my cocktail had to be empty for a few minutes before a waiter came around to see if I wanted to start another cocktail order).

    Apart from ambiance, which was spectacular in the garden on a warm Indian Summer evening, the experience was pleasant but unexceptional. The only thing truly noteworthy was the prices. The food was good and the service attentive, but if you go expecting a Michelin star experience, you will be disappointed. As someone who has long been a fan of Barndiva, I almost feel sorry for their newly acquired culinary fame. It has come at a time when post-pandemic job market realities are probably making adequate staffing a challenge.

    Barndiva is lovely, especially the patio. The servers mostly seemed a little new and unpolished, but they tried their best. My downgrade here is disappointment that they have gone back to a brunch menu on the weekends, in particular that they do not include the goat cheese croquettes! I live for those. Please bring them back!!

    Second time at Barndiva, first experience was amazing, this visit was so bad we won’t be returning. We arrived early for our reservation and decided to have a drink at the bar. There were three bartenders and all other patrons had already been served-we were pretty much ignored, finally someone noticed us and we were served, but we felt invisible. Next, we order an arugula and heirloom tomato salad w/fried curry leaves. Super expensive for what this was and there was absolutely nothing special about this salad, in fact the arugula was transparent, like it had been sitting around too long. It had exactly 4 sungold tomatoes and one rather small stewed heirloom in the middle with probably a Tablespoon of cheese stuffed inside. Next up a trout crudo-this was rather pretty, but again quite expensive. Four tiny bites wrapped in cucumber topped with fish eggs. It wasn’t bad, but neither was it exceptional and for these prices you had better be exceptional. Around this time I was trying to decide on a glass of wine to have with dinner, we ask for a taste of one of the whites, the sommelier gave us attitude and instead of just saying “absolutely, right away”, she starts describing it as.. “ it’s just your basic white wine” Really? The point is it seemed a terrible inconvenience to give a sample of the wine. She finally agreed, and it took literally 15 minutes for this to arrive. Now the entrees come, or should I say my husband’s entree arrived at the table, but not mine. My husband had lingcod, it was cold but that may be because he patiently and politely waited for my chicken to arrive. My dish was very good, no complaints. His fish was rather bland and again not exceptional. Remember the cocktails we had at the bar? Well, those empty glasses are still on the table and will remain there for the entirety of our meal. We were going to have dessert, but why give them any more money? And we were starving.

    Lovely experience for those times you don’t look at the amount on the check. A curious wrinkle: a 19% ‘service charge’ in the bill in lieu of a tip to pay a ‘living wage’ and provide health insurance for staff.

    Slow service so don’t be in a rush. For a Michelin star restaurant, they wouldn’t even accommodate a simple request of putting bacon on a salad. (But brought out a side plate of bacon for us to do it ourselves. So strange)

    It was very over priced for what I was served. $46 for 3 small pieces of chicken (10 bites) for the main course. It is a beautiful setting and our service was very good. They also added a 19% gratuity onto the bill. My husband had a the duck.($55) 1 piece was edible 1 piece was very hard and chewy

    There is a reason they just got their Michelin star. Our service was superb and the house made bucatini was perfectly al dente and perfectly held garlicky ratatouille sauce. The goat cheese croquettes never disappoint. Barndiva is an original.

    Memorable dining experience with a thoughtfully prepared delectable feast from start to finish. From the tasty goat cheese croquettes to the arugula with mozzarella infused tomato salad, each bite was melt in your mouth exceptional! The duck entre is superb. Stunning preparation with each component complimenting the next. Begin the evening with a celebratory herb infused cocktail (everything sourced locally) or non-alcoholic Add to this impeccable service from a knowledgeable & welcoming service team, and one will be scheduling a return visit very soon! Bravo Barndiva! Thank you for a fabulous dining experience!

    A very disappointing experience! I find it hard to understand how or why they were awarded a Michelin star. Nothing about the meal or service was better than average and, in some cases, well below. Unlike Single Thread, neither the food nor the service warranted their exorbitant prices.

    Great ambiance, friendly and knowledgable bar staff, excellent cocktail and coffee. This was a brunch. The food was a mixed bag. Benedict reuben had perfectly cooked eggs on an overcooked bagel (!) and i struggled to find any pastrami. At $38 seriously overpriced. Lovely mixed salad but I wanted french fries and they had run our. A generous pour of super french pressed coffee. Apple dumplings were terrible, over baked, dry, tasteless pastry, not much of it or apples. Bottom line, come for the bar staff, ambience, excellent cocktails and coffee, avoid the food.

    There were some interesting dishes and nice flavors but overall Barndiva was a disappointment given the Michelin star and its reputation. I had the duck; it was lukewarm, not particularly tender, and, frankly, not that interesting. The cocktails were a high point. We had much better meals in Healdsburg for half the price.

    This was my second visit to Barndiva. It was my anniversary. We were greeted with congratulations and a complimentary glass of prosecco. The menu changes constantly, but the food was wonderful, beautifully presented, and the service was excellent. The sommelier was very helpful, as the wine list is extensive. A great experience on a special occasion.

    Disappointing- the Michelin star has gone to their heads and they are coasting. $40 for corkage in Sonoma, and then they had the nerve to tack on a mandatory 19% SC (fyi- that means service charge) though they tried to hide that. Of course the bill also had a line to add a tip, even though they already had added the service charge. Waiter was mumbling to us, table was drafty. Cheese puffs were very good, pasta was cold when it came to the table, $55 duck entree was a like a filet rather than confit. Fortunately there was a Safeway near by, so we were able to pick up some ice cream and cookies for dessert. Maybe Healdsburg needs some new restaurants that aren’t so full of themselves.

    I was very excited to dine at Barndiva and absolutely loved the space both inside and outside. So lovely and enchanted. But I ordered the duck and my steak knife couldn't even cut through the meat. I sent it back and the waiter said the chef thinks of the duck as a steak ... had I known that before ordering I probably would 't have ordered it. For $53 I expected something tender and delicious, I've eaten other duck that just melted in my mouth with flavor. Plus the prices are outrageous for the culinary experience and portions and sadly I don't think I'll return any time soon.

    I guess I expected more. The menu was somewhat limited with fish being the most prominent item. I thought the preparation was fine but was not blown away by any means in terms of taste or presentation. The most disappointing part was the service. Three entrees came out together and the other was a minute or two later. For the prices, it needs to be better.

    This is a silly restaurant for people who want to taste food but don't want to eat a meal. The portions are ridiculously small and expensive. We laughed. We cried. We went home and ate dinner after spending more than $200 to feel empty. The space is beautiful but the service is just okay.

    My husband and I travel all the time from Saint Helena for the Barndiva Brunch menu on Sunday afternoons. It always makes for a perfect day "get-away" for us. The food is simply outstanding and also creative! Yesterday I had the Reuben Benedict and it was decadent. The pastrami they used was so flavorful and perfectly sliced and the bagel stayed crispy until the end. My husband got the Croque Madame that is always a treat. The brioche bread they use is so light, fluffy and also crunchy:) Our server, Aaron, is so attentive and friendly. We always look forward to seeing him. We will be back soon!
