Simply the Best. The owner/chef is a master of flavors. The sauce on the Camerones Borracho is so good we order it ever time. You have to get the pan (delicious in its own right). To soak up the extra sauce. Prices are very reasonable especially for Healdsburg. Service is always so friendly and punctual but this time a little slow which is not unusual in these times. Plus they were busy but they are always busy!

Hidden jewel family-run restaurant with friendly staff and unique Latin American inspired food. The paella is a must try! All of the appetizers were delicious! (The app didn’t let me add photos, so will try to add in separate post)

Every item we had was just delicious. Everything had its own unique flavor and it was just so good. We shared a variety of appetizers because there were just so many we wanted to try. The salad, the rolls, the pupusas. All delicious and would recommend. Then fish tacos and octopus. If we had to pick our favorites they would be the salad and octopus. The salad dressing was just the best I’ve tasted and everything in the salad was fresh. Every bite was perfection. Loved our weekend in Healdsburg and look forward to coming back. When we do we will definitely check out Guiso’s again.

Of course due to Covid we ate outside. Carlos’s fiancé waited on us. She is so warm and friendly. We order the corn and the octopus for our appetizers. The octopus was delicious, but the corn is like crack! We ordered the steak for 2 for our entree. I am not a steak fan, but I’ve eaten many steaks. The steak was the most flavorful, delicious steak I have ever eaten. I highly recommend Guiso’s. It will not disappoint.

We were fortunate enough to get a reservation here on a Friday night while visiting during Harvest. After a small wait due to the restaurant being full, we had the pleasure of having the chef’s sister as our server. We got the papusas, pan, and tacos de pescado. Everything we had was amazing. This restaurant is all run and operated by family and friends and you can tell by the atmosphere and the food. Chef ended up coming out to our table and speaking with us directly. Chef’s sister had told us how her brother had this dream and brought it to fruition. He gave us some more information behind what he was going for with his restaurant and spoke with my girlfriend about both of their heritages (my girlfriend is Colombian). We topped the night off with crema de guayaba and Sweet Hartz cheesecake to go. We can’t recommend this restaurant enough and will definitely be making this a required eating experience every time we visit wine country. Thank you again Chef for a wonderful dinner and serving us so late in the evening (we managed to get the last available reservation).

A great dining experience. You could tell there is a love and passion for the food they are serving. Every single dish that came out was seasoned and cooked to perfection. Our two favorites if we had to choose were the Shrimp and Octopus. Highly recommend! Pro Tip: Order the bread to sop up the sauce from the Shrimp! Haha

Will definitely be back again and will be telling all our friends about this place. GREAT JOB GUYS! Thanks for such an enjoyable meal.

This restaurant is a gem in Healdsburg. Small Chef owned and operated. The food and service was fabulous! If you are a fan of Latin fusion this is the place to go. Chef interacts with the guests to ensure all is well. Wait Staff was friendly and knowledgable about all the food. Some of the dishes are prepared by Chef's grandmother offsite or at least are her receipes.

Fantastic & top notch. We had an amazing time, great hospitality. Maracuya dressing, wow. The cubanitos sliders are the best sliders on the planet. Highly recommend the paella, the sauce is extraordinary and it's mostly seafood and veg, not so much rice. The family vibe is wonderful and our server Valeria is a sweetheart. Thank you, we will be back, often....

Very enjoyable family run establishment. Flavors are amazing and choices are unique. Definitely worth a stop and we'll return from time to time. Quite small, so plan ahead. Also note that it's somewhat slow-paced, so you can enjoy each dish.

The overall experience was so positive and high energy. They tell their story well and show much pride and respect for their grandmother’s recipes. The pupusas were delicious, as was the octopus. We especially enjoyed the shrimp and the corn. I would recommend this restaurant highly.

We had a perfect Anniversary dinner at Guiso Latin Fusion! Every dish was delicious, the service was excellent and friendly, and they even brought us glasses of Cava and gave us a card to celebrate our anniversary. Exquisite food and service in a small family restaurant - you can't do better than that. Can't wait to go back again!

Even though I consider myself a "foodie", I can honestly say I haven't had an experience quite like Guiso Latin Fusion. Gregarious chef/owner Carlos takes the flavors, herbs and spices of his native El Salvador and elevates them with the skills of a culinary school trained chef (which he is). Try the Pescado con Coco (seared local ling cod, papaya & coconut emulsion sauce with palmito oil, charred bok choy). The sauce is amazingly complex. Coconut milk gives the sauce body and the lime and spices perfectly compliment the fish.
Calabacita en Crema (grilled summer squash, tomato and cream sauce, salted cashews, cilantro flowers) was another standout. The squash was tender and sweet and the sauce was, again, amazingly complex.
Service is friendly and personal in this small, family owned restaurant.

First time visit to Guiso's and it was terrific. The service was friendly and helpful, especially with my wife and I not being familiar with this style of cooking. We tried a number of different small plate dishes and every dish was delicious and prepared with the freshest of ingredients. What a wonderful way to celebrate our anniversary.
When we visit Healdsburg again we will be back!

One of the best meals we have ever had! Original dishes expertly explained by the chiefs sister. Family recipes from El Salvador and other latin influences. Everything from the goat cheese to the delicious buns hand made from scratch (the chefs mother prepares some of the traditional dishes). Beautiful presentation and outstanding service. We sat outside - was lovely but the street was a little noisy and not a great view - didn't see the inside but I'm sure is as excellent as the food! The chef is only 30 - great things will continue to come! Will be on the top of the list for our next visit (maybe several meals)!!
