This was a great place to have dinner, we had small children and a few drunks in tow and they were very patient and acomodating. Hats off to Dry Creek Kitchen!
Since Dan Prentice is back as GM it is a different place. Finally back to it’s prior glory. Scotty has always been great in the kitchen but the front of the house needed Dan. Locals are returning, a good sign
Excellent ambiance and service; great food (minimal vegetarian options, FYI). Would definitely go back.
Beautiful place delicious foos
The food was spectacular and the chef came out and introduced himself. The scallops were perfection which can be a true test of a chef in my book! The menu was innovative (squid ink pasta with lobster!) and the wine list is one of the finest!
THe experience was excellent. I dropped off a bottle of wine to be chilled before dinner and the GM did so graciously. The food was tasty and the presentation was excellent! The chef stopped by and we shared our enthusiasm for his work! Great spot and a nice place for dinner after wine tasting!
a couple of rare small misses. our appetizer came out about 30 minutes after being seated (with our order taken within the first 10 min) and was hot and fresh. our entrees came out at the one hour mark. one was room temp and one was warmish, but neither piping hot & fresh. both were taken back to the kitchen and they were brought out again on very hot plates. the protein portion was warmer, but still just not the right temp. however, after a 9 hour day,we were hungry and did not want to eat any more ( of the delicious!) bread so ate the entrees as they were. they tried to make it right by offering to take back to the kitchen as soon as we advised them, but for some reason which was not truly acknowleged, something wasn't clicking in the kitchen with the timing of our entrees.
we appreciated the yummy pot of lemon cream for one of our birthdays. very good. we love dry creek kitchen, their sonoma county wine corkage policy and the elegance of the dining experience along with the delicous and thoughtful food there and will come back. ps - i love that leftovers are waiting for you at the front hostess area. very nice touch.
We spent four days in Healdsburg. All the meals were excellent, but our dinner here was the best. We had dined here several years ago and this was the best meal we have had at a Dry Creek. Fro appetizers to dessert everything was excellent.
Party of 8, we all tried something different, the food was excellent. The wait staff couldn't have been friendlier or more helpful. A very welcoming experience. Definitely will go back!
Very good meal. We lived the Oysters and octopus appetizers. Filet and lamb chop entrees also very good. Good service and you can bring your bottle of wine from local wineries.
Food was just ok. It was a bit overpriced given that the food was pretty unmemorable.
Yet another exceptional dining experience at Dry Creek Kitchen. Could not have been better. Highly recommend the red oak leaf lettuce salad with Russian River Tea vinaigrette. Can't recall having a more interesting flavorful dressing. We'd also recommend the octopus salad, as well as the lamb t-bone chops. Had the tasting menu on our previous visit (last December) and it really exceeded our expectations.
This is one of our favorites!! Food is always amazing-love the neighbor menu specials - service is top notch and dishes are creative using fresh local ingredients-we love this restaurant 💕
Waitress was terrific, chef too, very attentive, they obviously truly care. However, the food was way too salty and overdone. Not worth the cost of the New Years Eve package.
Went there for new year eve evening.wondeful dinner exellent food and service .will recommend for special occasion
Always a pleasure to dine at DCK. It is one of the north bays best and a local favorite. Great presentation and taste.
This was our first visit to your restaurant. Everything was very enjoyable!
We loved our evening out. Recent reviews said it had gone downhill a bit, but we found the most attentive staff, genuine and pleasant and the food was outstanding. They made special accommodation to change up the sauce on an appetizer since I do not eat beef. They recognized our anniversary and the service was outstanding! We can’t wait to go back.
Outstanding in every sense. Bring a wine produced in Sonoma?...NO cork fee...let me repeat that..NO corkage. First class on every level. Service, ambiance and cuisine. The lamb was the best we ever had. attentive staff.
We enjoyed the chef planned menu with wine pairing. Excellent. Will do it again. Complimentary champagne for our anniversary was a nice touch.
Great place and great service! Great place and great service!
We make a pilgrimage every December to Dry Creek Kitchen with friends and family from all over the country. Each time we have a special and spectacular experience. No one integrates truffles into a meal quite like Dry Creek! Can't wait to come back next year!
Great experience every time, whether just sitting at the bar for an early dinner or a nicely planned sit down dinner with family and friends. Beautiful understated location, excellent friendly servers and relaxing ambience. The food is excellent and really a good value for the cost, which is not out of line with any other fine dining option in Healdsburg anyhow!
We’ve been to Dry Creek Kitchen a few times in the past year and it’s always a special experience. Scottie Romano is emerging as one of the best chefs in Healdsburg (IMHO).
We stay at Hotel Healdsburg every year around Christmas time, and alway have dinner at the restaurant on the 23rd. This year was simply not up to our usual expectations. Service was not as attentive... it almost seemed like it was understaffed. The food was still very good, but the menu was not noteworthy.
Great ambiance, great service and terrific food.
Nice location right across the street from the town green.
As regular diners at Dry Creek, this establishment continues to decline. Once our go-to spot for fine dining, it can no longer boast that moniker. Service was just terrible, starting with a 30 minute wait for a martini! Salmon was great, duck breast was embarrassing. The setting/ambience however, just does not disappoint.
Sad to say goodbye but Charlie Parker, you’ve got an issue with this location.
We simple had a wonderful time at the Kitchen, as always.
Great service and food. My wife is vegetarian and the Chef came over to our table and offered to cook her anything she wanted. He came back to check up on her and actually thanked her for the opportunity to go of menu.
Will be back!
Ate at the bar. Excellent selection of wines and bourbons. Scallop entree was outstanding.
We’ve eaten at Dry Creek Kitchen many times. This was the first time everyone was disappointed in their meal and the service. Entrees were not served as per the order, and we felt neglected by our server. If anything, the service has always been outstanding until this recent visit.
Courtney was an excellent server. Knowledgeable, polite, non intrusive with just a touch of humor. All went well until the filet was served medium well instead of medium rare as ordered. The situation took a few minutes to resolve with a new dish, but it was all good and very tasty in the end. The manager comped the filet, which was good of him. They know how to take responsibility for their errors. I will definitely return and ask for Courtney.
When my guest open his napkin there was. Lipstick !!!
Rest of the evening was perfect !!
Ambiance is very warm and cozy. We have ordered the neighbor special on several occasions and quality, quantity and creativity have never failed. Ambiance is warm and friendly. Chef often visits the dinning room and chats with the guests. Canaletto are amazing! I would give it 10 stars if I could!
We dined with a 2 friends who are accustomed to fine dining and one said, "Thanks for introducing us to such a wonderful restaurant!" My wife and I have dinner at Dry Creek Kitchen 2-3 times a year. This was the best meal we've had here in recent memory. Every course of the tasting meal was perfect. Service is very professional, yet friendly. The setting is airy and comfortable. It is a wonderful restaurant.
We really like Dry Creek Kitchen. This was are second visit and both times have been enjoyable and high quality. We really like their Sonoma Co. wine corking policy which we feel helps to really encourage the purchase of local wines for dinner. We will return.
The negatives this visit were:
1) The oysters did not seem fresh and had a lot of shell bits in them.
2)Our server did not even bother to explain the SOCO wine corking policy or the fact that there was a Tuesday 1/2 price wine list at the back of the wine book. I had to ask about both and if we hadn't already known would have missed out on both of those discounts.
3) Server was not engaging...just taking orders.
Would have received 5 stars if not for these issues.
As usual it was a very pleasant evening with excellent service and food and wine.
It is my favorite restaurant in Sonoma County. Our friends also expressed how delightful
the evening was.
Our anniversary dinner at Dry Creek Kitchen was fantastic! The wait staff was super friendly, especially Don! We did the prix fix menu with wine pairing--- excellent. And we got some good ideas about wineries to visit the next day, including A. Rafanelli. Strong recommendation!
