About the restaurant
At The Matheson's third floor, adventurous cocktails are crafted from innovative spirits and seasonal fruits, flowers, and herbs. The Mugnaini wood-fired oven kindles small plates that spark the palate (and conversations). Outdoor, open-air seating amidst planters and fire-pits elevate our buzzing garden perch. We take limited reservations 4 weeks in advance for groups up to 4 guests. Large groups from 6-12ppl can be accommodated through Open Table Experiences.
Please note we can ONLY allow service animals on Roof 106.
An automatic gratuity of 20% will be added to parties of 6 or more.

The staff was amazing as were the drinks. Thanks Zoe and Kaitlyn, Loved the Mai Tai and 3 dot. Best ever. Pina coladas were inconsistant with 2nd one crazy thick, but all good. Not so crazy about boiled peanuts, maybe an acquired texture taste. We didnt really have the food, just few apps.

Petaluma
About the restaurant
Brewsters Beer Garden is located in the historic district of downtown Petaluma. We are an open-air dining restaurant with over 350 seats. Our cuisine is focused on technique driven dishes influenced by Southern Carolina BBQ and a smattering of locally sourced and sustainably raised Petaluma producers and ranchers. Think southern BBQ meets California produce with a refined touch of explosive flavors.

The dining space compliments the food perfectly as guests are treated to outdoor seating in a historic setting, with the comforts of large heat lamps, fire pit, and live music stage. We offer an array of over 30 revolving local craft beers on draft, Sonoma and Napa Valley wine, and a full selection of spirits and cocktails. Brewsters was built for people that want more than just a good meal when they eat, they want a dining experience. We are laid back, kid & dog friendly, and like to have fun.

We had great service but we felt little rushed since the meat servers were milling around us all the time and they walk very quickly. I wished it was more slow paced so we wouldn’t miss our opportunity to select our meats.

Healdsburg
About the restaurant
Chef Valette's kitchen is a place of creative collaboration. Our menu is a modern ode to Healdsburg’s micro-seasonal ingredients, exploring the possibilities of a locally foraged fungi from a secret stand on the slopes of rolling forest, or the range of a Purple Heart tomato cultivated from a farm within walking distance to the restaurant. For Chef Nate Davis and team, finding the limitlessness in the specific moment is a play of craft and passion.

Flawless execution. That’s how I would describe the experience at The Matheson. Everything from the moment we arrived until we paid the bill and departed was wonderful. The four of us shared two of the vegetarian appetizers; we especially loved the Maytaki mushroom appetizer. I ordered seafood. I ordered the Skate, and I love the way it was prepared. We shared the featured dessert which was excellent.
