Great atmosphere and exceptional service, the food was quite good and we enjoyed the evening.
Used to be an exceptional restaurant but looks that it just became an standard fine expensive restaurant. Below average food!

We enjoyed our dinner, great food, good help and nice atmosphere.
An altogether fine experience. We ate in a very spacious outdoor patio well away from the street. The service was excellent, the food delicious and the wine selections were extensive. Definitely a place to go back to.
We return year after year to this outstanding restaurant! The waitstaff is nothing short of perfect. A combination of attentive yet unobtrusive. The menu! Whether it be fish, perfectly cooked-- or meat or poultry or vegetarian cuisine-- the entrees, appetizers, side dishes and desserts never fail to impress. The restaurant is quiet and peaceful- a perfect accompaniment to a special meal where conversation can be enjoyed. It is our favorite place in all of Healdsburg.
Always a great time! Love this place. Service was excellent and the our bus boy Adian was fantastic!
Anniversary dinner met all expectations, complimentary champagne was lovely. Service and attentiveness was outstanding. Would hubby recommend. Namasté
They’ve done a great job with outdoor seating and spacing during the pandemic. Romantic ambiance.
Food and service were fantastic. My wife and i shared a few things and they were so accommodating in splitting up the dishes. Our waiter Matt was absolutely phenomenal.
Excellent meals and the service was very good as well
Excellent service and food! Can't wait to go back.
Disappointing meal. My wife and I ate here and were unimpressed. I got the chef’s special pork chop... it was cooked really well, but had no flavor. My wife ordered a pasta saffron dish. It was just not very good. We wanted to like it, but it wasn’t good. Even the spinach salad had an awkward clumpy dressing. This place was not for us.
Salads are enormous...and could easily be shared by two. Entrees are beautiful! Leave room for dessert!
We had a wonderful dinner experience at Dry Creek Kitchen during our stay at Hotel Healdsburg. We sat outside and they provided heaters which made it very comfortable. The server was over the top friendly and efficient. I wanted to adopt her. The complimentary bread was delicious, the risotto was excellent and so was the halibut. Unfortunately we were too full to order desert but the choices were tempting. They added a special touch by providing little paper bags for our masks. What a classy place!
Limited menu. Quality choices. Great service staff.
Dry Creek Kitchen has slipped, seriously, in terms of a quality menu and preparation. The food was lackluster at best; the lobster chitarra was inedible, the halibut and polenta was bland and tasteless. Maybe the restaurant can reclaim its former reputation but it will take time and talent.
We were very disappointed with the service and the food. Service was lacking as it took quite a bit to even ask for our cocktail order. When the food finally arrived my $60 ribeye was so thin, I was shocked. While my steak was lukewarm, my potatoes were so hot they burned my tongue. My husbands halibut was overcooked and the presentation for both dishes was just awful. When we got our bill, they had charged us twice for our entree's and appetizers.
For a first time visit, that we were so excited about, it was just so sad. We won't be back. It's just too pricey of a restaurant to take the chance.
Great service, food was great for most of our Gregorio and good for the rest. Wine recommendation was spot on.
Chicken cooked two ways was dry, especially the chicken leg confit, the salad was good and very generous portions. The waitress was lovely and very efficient
Favorite place in Sonoma wine country. Indoor dining felt safe and properly distanced. No issue splitting plates.
A wonderful spot for us locals, and visitors alike.
The fresh baked focaccia was incredible!! It was perfect!! Everything else we ordered was just as amazing! We had Ahi tartare for an appetizer and the lobster pasta and chicken two ways. The flavors were vibrant and everything was so fresh. Highly recommend!!
Super service and great food. Can’t wait to go back again.
The whole DCK team was amazing. Our server was very attentive and checked in often to make sure we had everything we needed. The wines were very good and paired well with each course. The food from Chef Michael and his team was amazing! We had the lobster pasta, the halibut, the Smash Burger and all were excellent. The Little Gem salad, Ahi Tartar, Mussels,and focaccia were excellent as well. The deserts topped off a fabulous meal! Can’t wait to come back!
Great ambiance food was well prepared with timely service we sat inside and enjoyed a quiet dinner will definitely be coming back
Delicious food with lovely setting and service!
Delicious! Also, the service was wonderful!!
For the price we paid for the meal and the wine, we were disappointed. The Prime rib was over cooked, and the chicken leg meal was not worth the price. The first course and bread was delicious but the main course and dessert were not what we expected.
The new back patio is a great venue. Looking forward to another meal!
I took advantage of the Easter Brunch menu to check Dry Creek Kitchen off my bucket list. It did not disappoint! I will definitely return. I had a table beautifully set with flowers on the patio facing the Healdsburg Plaza, well distanced from other diners. My waiter, Walker, was attentive and knew the wines (a great list!) as well as the food. The food was fabulous and plentiful (I couldn't finish dessert on the 3 course prix fix menu). Overall the experience met the gold standard I had hoped for at Charlie Palmer's kitchen, top shelf Wine Country food and wine.
We have been to Dry Creek Kitchen several times for dinner which is always exceptional. This time we went for Easter brunch. Just like at dinner everything was fantastic. Fresh, seasonal food prepared impeccably. Wonderful wait staff (Thank you Scott and Dante) and great cocktails. They have a very good wine list with selections for all budgets.
Great food and nice setting. Live music not our thing but being able to bring a bottle of local wine for no corkage is a huge win.
Delicious halibut and salad; patio in front sort of noisy; heaters comfortable; attentive but not overwhelming service; high wine prices.
Our server, Walker, was fabulous. The food was delicious.
Excellent dining experience! The staff was super attentive and I loved the "stash your mask" bags on the table. Our first indoor dining experience in a long time and it felt super safe and welcoming.
Food was over cooked included complimentary Bundt cakes. Drinks too long to show up unfortunately but were good. Appetizers were great - recommend ahi tuna tartar, spinach salad.
Not the level we'd expected. It was a busy Friday night, food took an hour and was not hot when it arrived (noticed other tables were waiting a long time too), service was spotty overall (no silverware, napkins until we asked). Outdoor setup was nice but weird music was distracting.
Great meal, great service, great experience. Wonderful way to end a day of wine tasting.
We had a very nice experience - even though it was a bit chilly the heaters were pretty effective. Food was good, but we thought a bit overpriced. We had the halibut which was excellent although not a very large portion, but did not care for all the turnips. Pork chop was great as was the little gem salad.
