If this country has a culinary cradle, it's in Northern Sonoma, where the fruits of local labor—from outstanding produce to handcrafted cheese—have never been on a plane. Drawing upon regional ingredients is a superior way to eat and one can taste the freshness in Dry Creek Kitchen specialties. You can also experience the regional abundance in the daily, tasting menu, featuring "Sonoma Neighbor" food and wine pairings.

Dry Creek Kitchen's wine cellar reflects the area's celebrated appellations, featuring more than 600 Sonoma wines with vintages ranging from 1985 to 2007 and a particular emphasis on Pinot Noir and Chardonnay as well as Cabernet Sauvignon and Meritage Blends.

Charlie Palmer's long standing commitment to wine manifests itself in his one-of-kind-collection drawing from the private libraries and cellars of the area's winemakers.

                                          As always, dining at Dry Creek Kitchen was a wonderful experience, starting with a warm, welcoming greeting at the door. The food was delicious and beautifully prepared, the wait staff was appropriately attentive, and the atmosphere was relaxing and comfortable.

                                          We are big fans of Dry Creek Kitchen and make it a point to dine there several times a year. This time we had the 3-course dinner. While we enjoyed the duck breast and New York strip, the first course offerings were more enjoyable. We really liked the seared Spanish octopus, and warm beets and burrata. It was a very enjoyable dining experience, made even better by the knowledgeable and amiable sommelier Erin, and the GM who greeted us and escorted us to our favorite table. The wine-per-glass prices seemed on the high side (but the wine was excellent), but the only criticism we'd offer would be to change the background music - sort of techno - which was somewhat annoying.

                                          How nice to "dine" and not just "eat" with casual others. A more formal and beautiful dining area with view of the plaza, welcoming by staff members upon arrival, (not one sole host or hostess), tables with table cloths, a quieter dining environment rather than loud talking and music, delicious food and a three course dinner reasonably priced, a visit if you are lucky by Chef Charlie Palmer himself. For this special environment we dressed up by wearing sports jackets. Sorry the dining area has become casual like coffee shops. As usual delicious food, fine serving, and all is well. We remain grateful, George Seeber

                                          Food was just ok. Wine pairing service was chaotic—3 different people told us 3 different things. Servers interrupted last wine descriptions and served plates by reaching over us. Once plate hit the table server either didn’t describe the food or talked so fast we didn’t understand what we were having. Possibly got newbies that night. Ruined my birthday.

                                          The service was great and it’s a beautiful restaurant. The food was good, but not great as well. Perhaps my expectations were too high as I thought it was going to be a fine dining experience and it didn’t feel that way. People in sweats and some wearing hats just didn’t match a pre fixed menu Charlie Palmer restaurant.

                                          We celebrated our 28th Wedding Anniversary. The wine pairing was amazing and our Sommelier (Aaron) made the night memorable along with amazing food served by a friendly staff

                                          We were a group of eight and the service and food were excellent at a very reasonable price. Our waiter was terrific and when we told the manager that everything was terrific, he asked if there was anything he could do to make it even better. Love this place and will definitely return next time we are in Healdsburg

                                          As my date and I were visiting Healdsburg we used the Michelin app to find amazing restaurants to eat at. We came across Dry Creek Kitchen and have heard this was a local favorite. The location is beautiful and as we walked inside we were greeted by friendly staff and we sat down immediately. The menu was absolutely amazing but the part of the menu that excited us was the April Tasting Menu, a 5 course meal with wine pairings. This experience made our date so fun and each staff member that may have brought out our dish or poured our wine were so kind. The food and the wine pairings were perfect and I recommend visiting here if you are in town.

                                          One of my favorite restaurants ever! We always dine here when traveling to Healdsburg. Their food is always spectacularly prepared, and the wine selection is excellent. This trip, our party of 4 all ordered the duck breast and I have never seen such thick pieces of duck. If you are a foodie, you will not be disappointed with this restaurant!

                                          Service was amazing. Our waiter was impecable, Erin, the wine director, was very generous and accommodating, the staff was on point. However, one dish was missing one of its key components - beurre blanc. I had to ask for it to complete my dish, and it came post haste. Otherwise, it was an amazing meal.

                                          Our meal took over 3.5 hours. The food was delicious but we waited about an hour for our appetizers. We were practically asleep at the table for our desserts. This was not an cheap meal and we expected better service in general but definitely for the price tag. Despite the pre fixed 3 course menu (only thing available) this is NOT a restaurant for groups.

                                          We went in expecting wonderful and this was far from it. We had to send back the swordfish entree. It was extremely salty. After a few minutes they brought back the same piece of fish. It was less salty (wiped? Rinsed?) and had been reheated. It was now over cooked. The duck breast entree that was ordered as a replacement was quite good. Expensive and disappointing dinner.

                                          The food was mixed. Arugula salad was very basic. The quality of the rest of the food was good. Poor vegetarian choices, particularly if you don't like mushrooms. The biggest problem was the service; extremely slow, and a mix-up of which of us had which item in every course. Overall, poor value for money.

                                          We started out being very happy to try DCK for a restaurant experience. We went on Easter paying $95 per person for a 3 course bruch. The starters were ok. My husband had roasted beet and burrata starter, it was so full of garlic he could hardly eat it. My crudo was ok if you call 4 little pieces of fish. My son-in-law had the asparagus again ok. Then after a long wait our main courses arrived. My daughter and I had the French toast. It had no flavor, and the rhubarb sauce was sour. My son-in-law had the swordfish, it was tough and cold. My husband had the Eggs Benedict. again, the meal was cold and the eggs over cooked. I can say the staff was very good, especially the bus people. In conclusion I am sorry that the meal was a disappointment, but we will not return.

                                          Really fantastic and amazing food! As there were only five other tables in the restaurant, I was quite surprised by the poor service. We had three different servers as the previous ones kept disappearing and we had long waits in between our courses. We had to repour our wine as noone was coming by and only got additional water when asked. Again, the food was fantastic and one of the best duck breast I've had, but given the price point, I would have expected much better service.

                                          One of the best restaurants in area. The staff, sommelier and waiters are first class. Chef Palmer was gracious and friendly. If you want a pure gastronomic and wine experience this is the place.

                                          The dining room can be noisy; if you are under the vaulted ceiling, you can hear too many conversations in tables next to you. Two visits this past trip the lamb loin entree, again, tough. Great wait staff, assistant mgr very friendly but very disappointed in both meals. In a town with numerous high end eateries, DCK is on sliding to the lower end of the competition. Chef Parker needs to step up his game.

We were treated to a sparkling wine toast and dessert plates were decorated with Happy Anniversary. Our meals were excellent. Wait staff was very helpful and professional.
