So here's the beauty of Guiso. The chef is so inventive and changes up his menu. Due to COVID we hadn't been there in awhile but now they've opened up to outside dining. This time we had these insanely delicious chicken wings that are bathed in tomatillo & serrano chili salsa verde, shaved asiago cheese, green onions. Five stars. Then we had lam shoulder tacos, WOW and a delicious skirt steak, cooked to perfection and dusted with a coffee rub. Nobody else in Healdsburg does anything remotely similar to this Latin Fusion cuisine.

Food was fantastic. We ordered the Pupusas to start. For the main, we had the Cubano, wild prawns and paella. All cooked perfectly and delicious. The restaurant crew was top notch, super passionate, friendly and welcoming. The outdoor setup using heaters, safe spacing between tables and the movie theater front entrance was an unexpected plus! Highly recommend.

Ate here for the first time, during COVID-19 reopening. Social distancing in full effect, hand sanitizer, wait staff and customers masked up. Food was very good. You could tell it is a small family run restaurant that tajes pride in the menu. The chef came out at the end of meals to visit customers. Highly recommend.

My husband and I will drive all the way from SF just to go to wine tasting and then enjoy a beautiful meal at Guiso. We love everything we have tried. Our favorites go-to items are the seasonal, local-sourced salad and the Paella Caribeña. Carlos, the owner and chef, is top-notch. Each dish is carefully thought out and pays homage to his Latin roots with an upscale fine dining twist. It's a family business. This place is a real gem!

We were recommended by Roadhouse Winery to check this place out. We loved it! Great people. Great food. Great wine! We even had to order additional food when we saw other plates passing our table. Glad we did. We’ll make this a stop when we are in town!

My husband and I love this place! Lucky for us, we can walk there! The food is absolutely delicious made by the family that owns and runs Guiso. It’s definitely worth making a reservation and enjoying a meal here. But remember to make a reservation because the restaurant is small and fills up very quickly.

Carlos continues to provide world-class cuisine, even when serving to the tables out on the sidewalk in front of the restaurant. We got to try try the full-size Cubano, which was fabulous! Paired with the plantains- perfection. They were perfectly done (not deep-fried) which maximized the texture and flavor. Last week we had the steak and the wings to go - both superb, and I generally am not wild about wings. Carlos never disappoints!

First night of reopening for outdoor dining. Food was AMAZING as always. We ordered most of the appetizers and the paella entree to share family style. The food here evidences the skill and artistry of a talented chef who can create culinary wonders from the simplest of dishes and knows how to use garnishes and sides to make the featured item on the plate shine extra bright. If you don’t believe me, order the simple dinner rolls served with blended herb butter and lemon olive oil dipping sauce. They are so good that it makes you wonder how a chef can turn something so mundane into such a memorable treat. The service was friendly and attentive in every way. We felt the joy the staff felt at reopening and overheard the chef say he forgot how much more rewarding it was to have diners back in the restaurant. He came out to talk to us just prior to dessert (which was subtle, beautiful and amazing by the way) and spent quite a bit of time chatting with my seven year old son who thrives on meeting new people. There was such authentic kindness and generosity of spirit in the exchange that I know we will all remember the night for years to come. Guiso was one of my favorite Sonoma County restaurants before we came (we made it our first dining experience after the long COVID shutdown) but everyone in my party left thinking it might well be our top dining experience in the County when we left. Thank you everyone for a memorable evening and welcome back!

They called to let us know our table might not be ready at our reservation time and to recommend that I bring a blanket as it was a rainy evening and might be cold. I thought that was very thoughtful. The service was excellent and the food was fantastic! Although I did bring a blanket, we were very comfortable with the heat lamps.

Chef Carlos has an outstanding palate! His recipe for empanadas is something you might see in a Michelin star restaurant, not only perfect flavors but exquisite presentation.
His staff also know exactly how to explain the food, this is what led me to try the empanadas and I’m so very glad i did.
The experience at Guiso is like finding those hidden gem restaurants that are on the cusp of being found out, given a Michelin star and then you can’t get in because they truly have earned their recognition.
Chef, you amaze me.

I would absolutely recommend Guiso! Friendly service and outstanding food. Their outdoor space was outfitted with tower heaters, so we were able to eat our dinner very comfortably. We enjoyed the fish tacos, camarones borrachos with the pan latino, and the paella. Every dish was wonderful, but the tacos were my favorite! The staff was absolutely lovely, and Guiso truly feels like a small, family business in the best way.

The food was perfection. Highly recommend the paella (it was a unique take on the dish -- a bit more saucy -- but was incredible). Service was outstanding, prompt, and friendly. Outdoor seating was surprisingly warm given that the ambient temperature the evening we were there was probably about 45.

Maybe better dining outside than in. Carlos has done a great job of adapting to these Covid times. The food and service were what you would expect from one of the best 100 restaurants in America. Yes, Guiso won that award before the owner/chef’s 30th birthday. Amazing.

Wanting to have an early dinner with a friend before being with family at Thanksgiving, I wanted to have a special meal. My favorite way is to have mostly appetizers as app salad and entree and Carlos delivers. The food is truly spectacular and unique without being heavy. Just the best food delivers flavors of Caribbean spices along with unique flavors from papusas to extra large and juicy prawns in a rich red sauce like you’ve never had before. And the chocolate dessert somewhere between a pot aux crema and a mousse. With a carmelized sugar to crack on top. A must eat place.

My husband and I had dinner here on a cold night, so it wasn't the best weather for outdoor dining. We still really enjoyed our dinner. It was the first time we had eaten at a restaurant since March, and we appreciated the tables being well spaced out and the temperature check of the customers. Our waitress was very friendly and shared a little about the history of the restaurant with us along with her recommendations. We had the ensalada and pupusas to start, and then shared the paella. All of the food was wonderful and delicious. The paella is more like a stew/soup than a regular paella but it was full of seafood, sausage, chicken, and vegetables, with a great flavor that had just enough hot spiciness to be interesting.

Our girl gang celebrated our 2020 birthdays here since lock down prevented us from getting together. It was worth the wait to be spoiled by Chef Carlos and staff. Our server was a sweetheart and she explained the concept behind the menu in detail, creating a story for us. We received complimentary Cava to kick off the night and now have a new favorite bubbly. The paella was outstanding loaded with meat, seafood and vegetables. We also enjoyed Grandma’s sauce with the shrimp and house bread. They follow COVID guidelines and we felt safe and distanced from other diners. For dessert we each received scoops of delicious ice cream with candles plus a chocolate raspberry dessert that was divine. Totally unexpected but they made us feel really special. We will be talking about this dinner for years. Highly recommend for anyone visiting Healdsburg.

#1 Restaurant in Healdsburg, hands-down(and coming from a local). If you are visiting from out of town, or celebrating a special day, make sure you reserve a table here to get the best dinner experience.

Food: The paella , papusas, and sliders are to die for. Probably some of the best flavored dishes I've ever had. The Guiso sauce in the paella is incredible. Wish I had leftovers to enjoy later, but it's too good to not finish

Service: Amazing. They really take the time to explain each item on the menu and the family meaning behind it. They are extremely polite, and the COVID policies are excellent

Ambiance: The tables are nicely spread out, with string lights and heaters for the evening. It's a great place for a nice night out, that's off the main road.

A MUST visit in Healdsburg/Sonoma County.

So good we went two days in a row, and so did the table next to us! A local favorite as well. Most guests were locals, announcing to the hostess they were showing friends or family “the best restaurant in NorCal.” One local couple came right after getting engaged, while another local couple got engaged while there!
