The food was amazing as always. The service was prompt, understated and welcoming. An all around great experience.
everything was great but the many flies in the outdoor seating area! how about Valette thinking about ways to improve the outdoor space to keep the bugs out? thank you
We ordered the chef’s tasting menu which I highly recommend, everything tasted incredible. The service was good. My only complaint is there were a couple food runners that both had very strong smelling fragrance on, it overpowered when they presented the dishes to our table. I wouldn’t recommend this restaurant for a romantic occasion as the noise level is extremely loud. The food is hands down the star of the show but the supporting roles weren’t as notable. Overall a good experience I just expected complete perfection considering I booked our reservation two months in advance for the first available Saturday.
Great experience from the door to table, server was knowledgeable and friendly, the food was great. Wonderful wine selection. We are inside but the patio also looked great. Bathroom was very clean. The kitchen was super accommodating when I requested something made vegetarian.
The food was amazing as always as is the service! We went with another couple and we were seated next to a large group of obnoxiously loud people, to the point of us not being able to hear each other across the table. I asked the hostess if she could move us and she did so. The rest of our meal was very pleasant.
The best food we have had in a long time—excellent presentation and flavors.
Food was wonderful and our waiter Alfredo What is the best!
We loved our dining experience at Valette! From the moment we arrived—everything was wonderful! We enjoyed great waitstaff, excellent service and fine cuisine in a relaxed setting! Our favorite was the scallop appetizer, however it wasn’t over shadowing any other dish, every bite from start to finish stood out as special! And the desserts were divine! Light, sensuous and deliciously unique! So glad we chose this restaurant!
Every dish that our party had was delicious. The server was very knowledgeable making recommendations and presenting the food with details of the preparation and composition. We will definitely go back again.
From the minute we checked in the service was impeccable. We all felt welcome and that is rare. Chef Dustin and his dad came to our table and chatted for a minute and that was a treat. The food was outstanding. We all had different dishes and share tastes with the others. Pricey but worth it. Can’t wait go back.
Valette is one of our favorite restaurants. Since the pandemic we have enjoyed eating at at the restaurant, although during the pandemic it was great to pick the amazing food up and bring it home! What a Great "recipe" Dustin and his team have created; the atmosphere is fun but elegant, ambiance is modern but with a nod to the history of Healdsburg and all of Sonoma County! Looking forward to the Matheson!
One of the best meals we’ve ever experienced. Scallops to die for! Awesome!!
We love this restaurant! We met the chef at Dry Creek Kitchen, he took us on a tour of the farmer’s market and presented a risotto that we all loved. We’ve recommended this restaurant to many friends and they are always impressed. My husband feels the steak is the best in the county. This is really a special place.
We had guests in town and we planned this dinner when we heard they were coming. Terrific 5 course meal and such a lovely staff! Dustin came by to visit a few times and the friendly and excellent staff did a wonderful job at making us feel right at home and made sure we had all that we needed. They also graciously accommodated several allergies for our guests. Thank you for the terrific food snd service!!
We had a beautiful anniversary dinner. Every appetizer and entree was delicious and the service was exceptional. One of the nicest dinners we have had in a long time and we go out often. Perfect for special occasions!
We love this restaurant! Since the pandemic, they were able to set up a nice outside section, However, we alway enjoyed the inside ambience as well. Our meals were cooked to perfection. Select your favorite protein dish and it will not disappoint!
Bob Valette (father) came to our table several times and we enjoyed all his stories. This place is not pretentious, but meals are first class.
Our favorite restaurant in town. Always consistent, delicious and creative entrees, superb service. Thank you!
Love love Valette! The food is amazing and the personal touches throughout the meal makes you feel so special! Thank you, chef Dustin and crew.
We had a wonderful dinner at Valette. There were 4 us and between us we had: oysters, scallops and the special risotto of the day to start. Following up with the N.Y. steak and halibut. Everything was delicious.
The only hiccup was 2 of the appetizers came out and we had to wait another 5 minutes for the other 2 to arrive. The waiter stopped by twice to say they were on the way. They were delicious when they arrived.
Valette was outstanding. Dustin, the chef/owner has a phenomenal menu with an amazing wine list. Our waiter new about and described each wine we were interested in to us. As someone who works in the wine industry, this was not only impressive but appreciated. I highly recommend making a reservation for the outdoor patio. Very cool ambiance. Bring a jacket but they also have heaters. We will definitely be back next time we are in healdsburg. Also, it looks like he might be opening another spot in healdsburg. WooHoo!
The best food I've had from a restaurant in quite some time. Ordered the tasting menu and every dish was fantastic.
Chef tasting menu was fantastic. Truly an enjoyable experience.
Excellent experience in every way - a must go - great for a special occasion or just Fabulous dinner anytime.
EVERYTHING was fantastic, our waitress took great care of us, made us feel like we were the only ones dining. The presentation was just top notch. Already looking forward to next time!
Valette did not disappoint. We had a fantastic dinner that was prepared to perfectly. I had the Ahi poke appetizer and while it did not appear like the traditional Hawaiian poke tasted every bit as good with the familiar flavors. My dining partner had the Scallops in Croute which was as delicious as ever. We both had the duck breast as our main and it was cooked to perfection. We accompanied our dinner with Vallette's pinot noir which was excellent. If you love candy as I do, don't miss the "It's not a Snickers" dessert. Service was impeccable and we have a lovely evening.
Great experience. Food and service were excellent. Highly recommend. Best restaurant we ate at during our visit.
Always a fantastic experience. Excellent service. Amazing wine knowledge from the staff. Phenomenal food.
We went with the Chef’s tasting menu and it was fabulous!
Wonderful service, can’t wait to go back
Dined in the outdoor area which is well shaded. Tables are nicely spaced apart from one another. All of the food was excellent - especially liked the charcuterie and duck. We brought our own wine ($20 corkage). Wine service was excellent: three different glasses were provided to accommodate the three different wines being served. This is absolutely the correct thing to do but many restaurants don't.
A must for any stay in Healdsburg! Great service with attention to detail; fabulous food choices and preparations and a lively and captivating audience taking it all in! Sit at the bar and let them take care of you!
We had a very nice meal at Valette. We live in Sonoma Cty and frequent this restaurant. The only area we would suggest improvement is that the striped bass could have been better. It was ok but not the typical quality that we expect from Valette. I can't pinpoint what needed to be improved about this entree, just that was not the quality/flavor profile that we expected. Overall it was a very good meal and we will return.
Everything was wonderful - food, wine, service.
We had a wonderful experience. Ordered the 6 course menu pescatarian and it was awesome. Very good service,
Service was the WORST!!!!!!!!!!! I’d NEVER go back. Took forever to get our plates; our server was non-existent and when I mentioned it, she was dismissive. Sad because food was decent, just trash service.
Valette is my favorite restaurant in Sonoma County. The food, service, and atmosphere never disappoints.
If you have not been you are truly missing out on an extraordinary find. Make reservations asap and GO. See you in December!!!!
The best restaurant in HEALDSBURG. Try the outdoor patio. Very nice. Do not go here without having the scallop appetizer
