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 rare vintages, and the most expansive list of Sonoma varietals in the world.

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.

    Been coming here for 20 years. And,even though the rain made things a bit chaotic and delayed our reservation for a while, GM Dan and his team went above and beyond to ensure our wait at the bar and my birthday dinner was wonderful. Chris was a phenomenal waiter! The food was delicious and I don’t think anywhere does scallops as well as DCK or even dessert! Espresso Brownie is sublime. We’ll be back again and again!

    The atmosphere, service, and food selection at Dry Creek Kitchen are all top-notch. Truly a fine-dining experience with a little less of a hefty price tag than you might get elsewhere in the prestigious culinary scene in Napa valley. If any caveats, I would say that portions could have been a little larger for some of our items, and I wouldn't have complained. Everything, however, was utterly delicious, without exception. Service was attentive and kind. Our water glasses were never less than 75% full, and when getting up to find the restrooms, I had three different staff guide me in the right direction. I would definitely revisit this gem of a place. A wonderful fine-dining experience that doesn't feel overly pretentious.

    The food, service, wine and hospitality were amazing here! We visit Healdsburg around twice a year and someone recommended us to go here. We broke from our “normal” restaurants and came to Dry Creek kitchen, and both agreed that this will become a must eat at place, when we are here. We upgraded to the 2 person Ribeye and it was delicious and we took home leftovers. I loved the English pea salad and the GF cheesecake dessert. I am also Celiac/gluten free and had so many choices here, including some amazing gluten free bread fresh out of the oven! Thank you!

    We are lifelong So Co residents, and this was our first time to Dry Creek Kitchen. I think we assumed since it was part of a hotel that it was only catering to tourists. Since Healdsburg is the half way gathering location for us we choose Dry Creek Kitchen to celebrate a birthday with my closest friends. It was 5 stars in all aspects. Not one critical comment to share. We all highly recommend for the best overall dining experience. A plus was no corkage on our 2 bottles of Sonoma county wines. We look forward to our next visit.

    It is always a pleasure to visit Healdsburg. And Dry Creek kitchen is one of our favorite spots for a romantic date-night. Love the service and ambience of this restaurant. We love to share the aged ribeye with all of the delicious sides. The wine list is top notch and don't say no to dessert. Awesome experience.

    Words fail to describe how incredibly delicious our meal was! My husband and I chose different items from the three-course options so that we could experience six instead of three. All were equally prepared and served to perfection. Service from the team was just as exquisite as the meal. I highly recommend Dry Creek Kitchen for the next time you want to have an over-the-top dining experience!

    Dry Creek Kitchen has been an anchor tenant in the Healdsburg dining scene for over 20 years and Executive Chef Charlie Palmer was one of the original “farm to table” focused Chefs. DCK went through a period a few years ago where they were not on top of their game but in the last couple of years they have really stepped it up. Our dinner last night was spectacular. We both did the tasting menu and it was terrific. Chef Shane, somm Jon Macklem, and GM Dan Prentice are taking DCK to a new level!
