hawaiians love valette. we had to go there three times. they were threatening to eat food off the floor. they would like valette to move next to their house but then they would be fat.
Always a great dining experience. Several of the employees remembered us from our last visit and came over to say hello. Our server Will was knowledgeable, professional and had a great sense of humor. We did the 5 course tasting menu with wine pairing and it was fantastic as always. I appreciate that they can do this completely pescetarian. I've never tasted anything other than high quality, fresh, inventive food coming from this kitchen. Perfection. Highly recommend.
Excellent food. Fantastic Service. I will definitely be back. Best food I have had in a long time.
A must go-to if you are in Sonoma / Healdsburg. Farm-to-table excellence! Brilliant flavors in all of our dishes. Must start with the scallop appetizer (and add extra scallops - they'll do it for you): it is served in the most creative and delicious way. All entrees were fantastic (the duck was out of this world), and they even gave us a complimentary small cake for my wife's birthday after we grudgingly passed on dessert. Top marks and can't wait to go back!
Off the charts. Best dinner we had in our Napa Sonoma trip. Bay Scallop appetizer is pretty much the best appetizer ever. Both fish entrees, and everything else, was excellent. Ate at bar and had fun conversations with the staff. (Bar height is a smidgen high, even with the cushions offered, but after 5 minutes we forgot about it). Wish there was a Valette in Venice, Ca, (my home)

Service was spot on and food was exceptional. Definitely a must visit when in Healdsburg.
Our birthday celebration went off without a hitch. A very large party definitely kept the service staff well occupied so that we did not get the customary service we've come to expect, but that is what circumstances dictated. The food, as expected, exceeded expectations. Like Douglas MacArthur, we shall return.
Unforgettable experience. The scallop in puff pastry dish from presentation to flavor was the highlight, but everything from the casual elegance to the team service was on point
Excellent as always. Great wait staff and outstanding kitchen.
We saw this restaurant on Check Please Bay Area on KQED.
We made res.and I requested a nice table and we got the best in the restaurant!!!
The service was exemplary they did everything to make our experience excellent!
The salad, pasta and the Waygu steak we all delicious. This is a MUST GO!!!
We will be back!
We wanted something special for our 25th Wedding Anniversary and Valette totally delivered. What an amazing experience. Having eaten all over the world, to include some Michelin started restaurants, we rate our experience at Valette among our top 10. We did the 5 plate tasting menu along with wine pairings. Every dish was notable, seriously. Especially over the top was the scallop appetizer and the duck entree. All of the pairings were notable. This is the best restaurant we visited in the area. The value, quality, and creativity certainly top the Farmhouse. Do yourself a favor and go!
Excellent food. We chose the fixed menu
We were party of 8 and celebrated our friends's anniversary. They accommodated our request on how we want to be seated and before we came to restaurant they called to confirm that all is setup for us. The food is something to remember for a long time. I mean not only presentation but also the taste. It was so good. We ordered many dishes and every single one was very delicious. Our friends got a very nice card from the owners and desert for couple was on the house. On top of it, owner was present in the restaurant and was walking around. He also allowed to take pictures with him and shared lots of interesting stories. I highly recommend the Valette and make sure to make reservation ahead of time (we did a week in advance). The restaurant was packed when we were there.
Personal service; great food and good wine list. A real treasure!
Server was rude to my friend. Food took way too long - even for slow food - and waiter totally ignored the issue, walking passed us singing as if nothing was wrong.
Fantastic meal and service!
I would give it another try. I read the write up about the brothers journey and I really wanted to
give the restaurant the best review but cannot.
I had the pasta special and it was dry.
My husband ordered the lamb and it was cooked medium well done and he ordered it rare.
The restaurant was so loud. There was a table of six at the front who thought the only way to
speak at one another was by shouting.
Unfortunately, we were happy to leave at the end of our meal.
If we come back to Sonoma will try the restaurant again and hopefully it will be a better experience.
Thank you so much for another fabulous anniversary celebration! We really appreciate the excellent service and remembering our anniversary ❤️
Amazing food! Went there for dinner and returned the next evening! Excelent combination of different flavors and textures...a restaurant you don,t want to miss!
Vallette is an amazing restaurant and I would recommend it highly to anyone. Our meal was amazing: burrata salad, scallops, charcuterie, fresh fish and amazing desserts. Five star rating!!
Wonderful vibe, great service and the food is fantastic! The warm asparagus salad with a duck egg was superb. The poke was also wonderful, as was the ginger carrot soup. Valette never disappoints!
Great spot with a fun vibe and inventive food. Dustin and team do an exquisite job!
Wonderful tasting menu, great wine list and excellent service! The restaurant is a little dark due to the fact they covered the windows. It would have been nice to have more natural light.
We got engaged!
One of the best restaurants we have ever been to (and we frequently eat at Michelin rated restaurants). Delicious food, perfect service. Highly recommended.
This was such a wonderful dinner. Started off with the charcuterie funny, knowledgeable, attentive and went the extra mile for us knowing we were celebrating our 15th anniversary. We’ve eaten at several Michelin restaurants that Valette puts to shame. Highly recommend if you’re in the area!
Delicious, creative, fresh and excellent wine by the glass list! Highly recommend Valette!
Exceeded expectations in every way. Dustin’s dishes are simply outstanding & the hospitality team is world class. Do their “trust me” menu...trust me, you’ll love it.
Thank you, Team Valette, for an exceptional evening. 👏🏽
We choose the 5 course tasting options. Neither of us was served the same dish, so we got to share in 10 different tastings. The plating is as beautiful as the food is delicious.
James, our waiter was excellent, matching the quality of the food. I highly recommend Valette.
The food at Valette continues to be exceptional. The flavors and imaginative use of local ingredients make this an experience that shouldn’t be missed. Highly recommended.
Had a great server who made the birthday celebration fun. And the great food didn't hurt either! Did the Chef's Choice tasting menu. Highly recommend.
We arrived way early for our reservation and although they were very busy they accommodated us with no problems and we were treated extremely well. Service and food were awesome! Thank you again for everything!
Excellent food choices and the presentation was superb. Wine pairing was very good. Desserts were addictive. Definitely a -must visit- while in Healdsburg.
Overall good food with nice presentation. Would recommend it.
Some of the best food I’ve ever had. Perfect balance of ingredients. Service was excellent. Thank you for such a wonderful meal!
This was our first visit to Valette, and I will say up front that it exceeded our already high expectations. We have eaten at outstanding restaurants the world over, and this is one of them. To begin with, I had requested a table in a relatively quiet area as I have hearing problems in a noisy environment. We were led on arrival to a large booth that fulfilled this need admirably. The attentive staff was there promptly to bring water and menus, and our waiter could not have been friendlier or better informed, both on the menu items and on the cocktail and wine list.
For my starter I had seared scallops in a puff pastry with a leek and fennel champaign sauce that was one of tastiest dishes I've ever had. I was truly an awesome creation. I congratulate the chef on a home run. My wife was also quite pleased with her salad. The hot bread right out of the oven could not have been tastier.
For my main I went with the parmesan crusted halibut served beautifully over a bed of lentils, leeks, peas, etc. that was perfectly prepared and absolutely delicious. My wife's Wagu beef steak was done to perfection as well, as were its accompaniments.
My only criticism of Valette is that the main course was served to quickly, just moments after we finished our first courses. Would have liked a little time to digest and relax.
Would I recommend Valette? Is the Pope Catholic? Can't wait to return to this awesome gem of a restaurant just off the main square in Healdsburg. By the way, though not inexpensive, it was worth every penny. We live in the heart of Silicon Valley where one can easily spend $1,000 on dinner for two at a number of restaurants. Valette's prices were a bargain for the quality, and our bill including cocktails, wine and tip was in the $200 range.
Very limited menu selections
Skip the desserts
This is one of the best restaurant and dining experiences I have ever had. I have been to numerous 3 Michelin star restaurants in Paris, Barcelona, Hong Kong and London, and I can say unequivocally that Valette meets or exceeds many of these.
