We ate here for the first time during Restaurant Week. My wife and I both chose the $39 3-course dinner plus wine paring, and deliberately made different choices from the menu, to taste the maximum number of dishes. The food was universally very good - relatively simple preparations done well. However the amount of food was very small - we were both thinking of things to munch on when we got home. The wine pairing (at $10/person) was exceptional! We were each of served three glasses (not full but substantial) of really good K-J wines, which was a great value. The restaurant is very small, and the noise level was higher than I would have liked. Service was simply perfect. If only there was a little more food.

Our first visit was a great experience - good food, wine & value. We were excited to come back again and since it was Valentine's Day, we thought it would be even more special. Well, this menu was definitely not as good as our first time. And of course, since it was a holiday, the price went way up. How unfortunate because the food was not exciting at all. The regular menu consisted of lamb & steak courses and the garden menu had a boring salad & gnocchi. The best part was probably the wine.

Greg was our server. He was one of the best servers I've ever had. He knew the wine list extensively and provided great guidance for the food pairings.
He made our dining experience both memorable and exceptional.
Also, every dish we had was delicious and every glass of wine we had was special.

Food and service were great. The choice of wine to pair with the food was great. It was both a fun meal and great experience.

Very accommodating, knowledgeable and friendly staff. With advance notice we managed to get a multi-course vegan dinner. Everything was delicious, the portions were just the right size, and the wine pairing was spot on. We especially enjoyed the creative use of mushrooms in more than one dish. I'd also like to mention that KJ has a great culinary garden at their tasting room in Santa Rosa, well-worth visiting, although I don't know if the restaurant in Healdsburg gets the produce from there.

We are wine industry related and were very disappointed. I expected more from KJ. For what we were charged it was way overpriced. My son who is a culinary student could barely touch the mushroom soup. My wife couldn't eat it at all. The portions are extremely small for the entrees we were served. We were so upset we skipped dessert and went down the street. Unless something changes in the future I do not see myself coming back or recommending this restaurant to anyone.

This restaurant that's associated with Kendall Jackson wines is about more than just wine. The food is prepared in imaginative ways with a real depth of flavors and can be enjoyed with or without wine, and this is true for starters, entrees, and desserts. The potions were not too large so that we could enjoy multiple courses without feeling stuffed. It was great fun to try to guess the wines in the blind tasting.There are a small number of tables, and seatings seemed to be staggered, so the service we received was really outstanding.

We went with 4 friends that had never been. We had high expectations as we are seldom disappointed there. All the wines and plates that we were served were tasty. The service team was led very well by Matt. Both Greg and Alvaro did an incredible job of providing support. We are proud to have this restaurant in our hometown and love to show it off.
