Food was terrible. We had to go out to eat after this meal.
Just have the Mateo’s Dinner. Really, that’s all you need to know. Sure, you can discuss food likes and dislikes to make sure you don’t get something you don’t like but trust Mateo on the rest.
Another fantastic family celebration at Mateo’s!
The six of us shared guacamole and roast potatoes with spicy aoli followed by fragrant chicken soup, heuvoes motulenos, Yucatán Beef and Rock Cod Tacos. Service was great as always from the inestimable Mario. When our Colombian family members requested more mild sauce their entres were quickly replaced. Desert flans and ice cream were also perfect.
We booked New Year's Eve at Mateo's for something different and were looking forward to some authentic Yucatan food only to find a box standard farm-to-table menu. If we'd wanted farm-to-table there are dozens of other restaurants we would have considered instead. The worst part, though, was the food wasn't good. The entrees seemed to have the same sauce poured on them regardless of what we ordered. The chicken was very dry and extremely salty, which for $30 for a chicken dish was really disappointing. We also ordered the flan dessert that everyone seems to rave about and found that also overcooked but with milk poured on top so it was a strange consistency of very dense overcooked flan with runny milk in each spoonful. We ordinarily would give a restaurant a break on a busy occasion like New Year's Eve, but there was only one other table seated when we arrived so we can't attribute things being overcooked and salty to a busy kitchen. We'd really been looking forward to trying Mateo's, but after a very unauthentic, expensive meal that wasn't very good, we won't be going back.
one reason we chose Mateos was my daughter was craving their chips and salsa/guac.
was told due to a special event they weren't serving them this night. what Mexican rest. doesnt have in the kitchen? disappointed from the start but the entrees were good.
First time here and we were happy. Came for lunch. Very quiet and we had a lot of attention. The food was good, could have been served hotter (temperature wise). Homemade tortillas were excellent. Tequilla choices incredible.
Lots of words on the menu and by the server to describe the cuisine with very ordinary results.
A few salad ingredients tasted moldy and I had to insist they take the charge off the bill - bad form. Definitely not worth it.
Decided to try Mateo's for a pre wine tasting brunch last Sunday. I am still dreaming of the flan. Not traditional but oh so very good! We will be back!
It was a delightful evening! The ambiance is warm with a beautifully lit bar. We were early for our dinner and had a leisurely time over appetizers and margaritas from the bar. Fantastic ceviche - paper tin halibut sprinkled with pomegranate seeds and diced mango! Perfectly seasoned and flavorful. The tacones are a must! Fun! All the entries were perfectly executed and delicious. The lamb and pork dishes were tender and spiced beautifully, and the fish was equally well prepared. The delicate and butternut squash lobster bisque soup was smooth and very flavorful without being too sweet. Delightful evening and we will return!
Well worth the extra walk.
Mateo’s is a block off the square, but worth it!
The lamb was falling of the bone tender, the dungeness crab super fresh. We will definitely go back.
Delicious food, not to be missed in healdsburg. Gregarious staff, tasty cocktails, too!
We had a delightful lunch out in the patio, mid week, sitting in the shade enjoying the ambiance. Wonderful. Service was very attentive and well timed. Margaritas were delicious as were the Tacones and Tacos! We will be back!
Mateo is an Artist!!!!! Farm to table at it's best!
Amazing food and service. Gave ourselves over to Chef Mateo and his great staff with tasting menu and wine pairings. Each course was tremendous.
chef matteo has a passion for food and it shows, the food tasted looked awesome, kinda short on staff that night but the waiter knew every detail, going back soon!
