Never disappoints! Absolutely best birthday dinner...scallops, poke to die for , then pancetta wrapped halibut and swordfish that melted in your mouth, service and staff over the top!!
We live in Healdsburg and this was roughly our 7th or 8th visit to Valette.
The food is outstanding and creatively presented. The dining room is rustic elegant with a touch of mid-century with the light fixtures.
On this particular visit we had the poke as a starter and I was thinking about it the following morning....without question the best we have ever had.
The best new addition to Valette is James one of the waiters. He is very attentive, patient, knowledgeable and funny! We'll be back again soon if for nothing else, the POKE!
This place was pretty amazing, we did the tastes with wine pairings. Wished we could have tried more but we were stuffed full after only 5 tastes. Plan to be back soon and try some of the things we missed. Only issue I had was the wines though paired well with the tastes, weren't particularly drinkable on their own. Might bring my own next time and pay the corkage fee.
Noise was ridiculously loud. Owners should address the problem, which is easy to solve. Kitchen must have been hot as they had the A/C on and the dining area was COLD. Had to eat with out coats on, as did neighboring tables. Food was outstanding, but ambiance makes us not likely to return.
Our second dinner at Valette and it lived up to the 2 year reputation and our memories. Great wine list, super appetizers (don't miss the scallops en croute) and absolutely delicious duck breast. I plan to dine here at least once every time I visit the area in the future. Will, our server, was knowledgeable and fun!
Great fun place to eat in Healdsburg. Seems like a popular place. Varied menu with good options. Had the swordfish special which was delicious. Home baked rolls and tasty appetizers. We will be back!!
Great food and service. Tad bit on the noisy side but really a must stop for dine dining in Healdsburg.
Ordered several appetizers and a couple of bottles of wine. Nice experience. Recommend the charcuterie, scallops and poke.
Food was delicious and our server was very attentive. A bit noisy, but overall a great experience.
Exceptional Food... by far the best dinner in Healdsburg.
Fun and boisterous vibe. Food was fresh, excellent and well prepared.
Bob Valette is a friendly and wonderful host!
I’d recommend a reservation, popular and busy spot.
Good selection of wine of course!
Service was a bit slow but then again it appeared to be a full house the night we were there!
The meal was wonderful and the wait staff was extremely helpful and on top of things. We had a delightful time and would highly recommend this restaurant.
Overpriced wine list, on an iPad so hard to scan. Noise level was super high. Chef put mint in strawberries and ice cream, awful. Overpriced, over rated. there are much better places in Healdsburg
Can’t wait to go again on our next trip to Healdsburg!!
We enjoyed a delicious meal at Valette, I can still taste the risotto melting in my mouth. The halibut was cooked to perfection and with the English pea and piquillo pepper sauce was a culinary delight. Service was impeccable - and we could actually hear each other converse in the quiet booth. All in all, the meal was outstanding and well-deserving of a visit every time we travel to Healdsburg.
From the moment we sat down, we felt rushed. We ordered cocktails first, then three courses to share, each paired with a glass of wine. We ended up with all the food and three glasses of wine on the table at one time. The food was beautifully presented, but we could not enjoy any of it as it was a brought to the table together. We couldn’t even remember which wine to drink with which dish. We felt that for the amount of money, this restaurant was a poor choice. We will not recommend this place.
James was the best wait person! He was so attentive to our needs!
The food was unbelievably out of the world delicious! It was a perfect evening!
As always, our dinner at Valette was superb. Everything was wonderful - the staff, the meal, the ambiance - everything. Thank you!!
The food and wine at Valette were superior. Extra enhancements to the dining experience were the conversations with owner and owner’s father—delightful!
Another fantastic experience at Valette. Outstanding food and service.
Our vacation splurge dinner and everything was just fantastic! The Service was stellar from Hostess to our Server (Frank!), food runners and support Team. Incredible mushroom risotto appetizer, duck & Waygu steak enters accompanied by surprising, delicious sides. A perfect date night for us!
Having been recommended by several sources we booked this for a special occasion. We were disappointed. Service was friendly but staff uninformed about the menu and the wines, despite the small number of choices. The food was descriptively exciting but not when served. Duo of lamb was a lamb chop which was tasty but unremarkable and the shoulder bore no resemblance to lamb due to being very heavily cured. Good quality lamb spoiled sadly. We did not stay for dessert. A shame.
Great food, good service, wonderful atmosphere, but expensive. Welcome to the world of Healdsburg restaurants.
The food is some of the best we've had in the area.
Our server, John, was extraordinary.
My wife and I had an amazing anniversary dinner at Valette. It was a wonderful experience! The food, hospitality and service were 5 star!
One of the top 5 meals I ever had. One where the food Gods were smiling.....everything was perfect. The waiter recommended a spectacular wine, the Charred Wagyu New York Steak was perfectly done, tender, great flavor and served with a wonderful variety of tasty goodies such as Mr. Duncan's Mushroom Fondue Brown Butter Parsnip Puree – Au Poivre Butter – Roasted Bone Marrow. The Risotto appetizer and S'Mores dessert were both excellent. Great waiter....Valette should have at least a couple of Michelin stars.
The food was good, but not exceptional. I was disappointed that their way of celebrating birthdays was to give them a card. Not very impressive. I would not go there for special occasions.
Loved our experience! The food was excellent and the service was impeccable. We went with our 1 yr old daughter and they were very accommodating, which means a lot to us as parents.
We often try to get a meal at Valette when in Healdsburg. The food is always creative and plentiful.
The menu is large enough to have variety for different tastes but small enough for the chef to maintain quality and fresh ingredients. Service is always attentive and prompt. We like to have a few appetizers for a meal sometimes and they're a great way to try different tastes. Wine list is very good for our palates.
We love when we’re lucky enough to get a reservation here while in town! Dustin and his staff are wonderful and the food is delicious! Can’t wait to return.
The Day scallops were the best thing on the menu. The lamb was very tender, but something I cook in my own kitchen. The swordfish was strangely tasteless and very disappointing
Fast, efficient service with intent to "turn the table". The food is great with nice selections. However, being in Healdsburg, the menu is pricey the tables are crowded quite close and there is no attempt to dampen the din from fellow dinners.
One of the best meals we’ve had in a while. Everything was great!
APPETIZERS EXCEPTIONAL, STEAK SOMEWHAT TOUGH. THE SERVICE FROM A TEAM, ONE OF THE SERVERS WAS NOT HAPPY AND "MOVED" MY SALAD I WAS STILL EATING ALMOST MID FORK SO SHE COULD MAKE ROOM FOR THE ENTREE. JUST KINDA WEIRD, BECAUSE WHEN SHE ASKED I TOLD HER I WAS NOT FINISHED. THE WINE I COULD HAVE USED SOME HELP ON. DESSERT ALSO PHENOMINAL.
Every dish we had was a delight. We chose to have two appetizers one main, side and dessert between us and it was actually a bit too much food. We look forward to trying more of the menu soon.
The food is fairly good for the price. However, the service was seriously subpar for the level of restaurant. Giving people an iPad for drink menu does not equal good service. Only getting high quality employees equals good service
Seem to have fallen into an assembly line sort of rut. They push the unexceptional tasting menu and you can see it coming out to every table. I regret that we both ordered it. Only the scallops were memorable. We wanted the meal to be special, but it sadly wasn't. I'd recommend sticking to the a la carte choices.
We brought friends to dinner and they were totally WOWED!! Not only was the food magnificent, the ambiance and the visit to the table by Chef Dustin, was so appreciated and sincere. We love this place and keep coming back for more!! Thank you and your terrific staff!
We really enjoyed it a lot thank you so much for everything
Excellent! This restaurant never disappoints as the entire team follows the great example set by the owners.
