We peaked at the cocktail and charcuterie board. Then 45 mins passed and there was no entree. The waiter finally came over to say it was coming out soon and would we like a another cocktail which we declined. The manger then came over to let us know that a larger party had gotten ahead of our ticket but our order would be out and did we want a salad on the house to hold us over. We did not so he said save room for dessert as it would be on the house.
After about 2 mins We realized that we had had enough and let them know we were done. The manager offered to box our dinner which he assured us would be out in 2 minutes. We said we were done and he said the cocktails and charcuterie board were on the house.
We normally would have left something for the waiter but he really did not look out for us and once the manger stepped in avoided the table.
I am sure the food is great but we will never know.

Raspberry fields (cocktail); charcuterie board's cured meats, house mustards, and pickled green peaches; and cookies and cream (dessert) were some highlights.

Chef's choice tasting a fun idea.

Overall left very disappointed though. Around 150-200pp incl the tasting and left with full bellies but empty hearts. Pork dry, coffee cold, apple dessert rubbery.

Inconsistent experience overall--maybe just an off Monday night?

Our first visit... nice outdoor dining setup that was comfy despite 40 degree temperatures. The NYE Prix Fixe was well chosen. The Gnocchi and Duck courses paired well with the Barolo that was part of the wine pairing that night. If we weren't driving, the full wine pairing would have been a treat. Def' worth the drive whether you're vacationing or local.

We enjoyed the food well enough but the service was awful. Staff seemed to have trouble juggling the timing of tables with tasting menus and those without. Our 3 courses took over 2 hours. We had to beg for wine and water in between. The food was delicious if over-priced, even for the area. Tourists disrespectful of Covid mask requirements with staff unbothered to address issue. We were celebrating a birthday and had told the restaurant ahead of time but no one seemed to know or care. Would not recommend!

Outstanding in every way/ service & food. Appetizers were uniquely prepared & artistically presented. Favorites were the Ahi Poke & the Scallops En Croute. Entree notables were the Duck Breast & the Wagyu steak- both perfectly cooked and sauces bursting with flavor.
Our waiter, John, clearly a seasoned veteran, made the whole dining experience more enjoyable plus we got to be served one dish by ,Aaron, one if the owners who apparently is always hard at work !
Get a reservation here. Michelin quality food for a much better value than the nearby starred establishments.

Our party of 4 had a wonderful experience at Valette. We got a last minute reservation and sat outside. They have heat lamps so it was very comfortable. We decided on the Chef's choice 5 course dinner but without the wine pairing. Instead we let our waiter pick a white and red wine to go our meal. The meal was fantastic and the wine that was chosen was perfect. The presentation of each course was clean, well thought out and made it easy to sample the many flavors of each dish. We were surprised with 4 different deserts to try for the last course. Overall we all really enjoyed our visit. Would highly recommended Valette and the Chefs choice 5 course dinner.

This jewel was pricey & delicious. Nice atmosphere lovely California trendy scene. Definitely $$$ but the portions were generous and plenty to share with friends and family. I will definitely return for a special occasion. It was cold outside so they were lovely to accommodate us with the indoor table so our reservation was for outside. Staff was comfortable, not pretentious and really a great dining experience.

Hands down, Best restaurant in Healdsburg. In fact, it’s one of the best restaurants I’ve ever dined at. Healdsburg, especially Vallette is just on another level compared to any spot classified as fine dining in LA or NY. Such a great menu and atmosphere with incredible service. Kudos to the owners and staff. Eating here is a strong reminder of why we all go out to eat.

Valette is my new favorite restaurant in the Bay Area… nothing compares! It is a bit pricey for the serving sizes and they should work in that a bit. We left feeling hungry after appetizer, dinner and dessert. However, it was a beautiful albeit light meal. They forgot to put a candle in my dessert and forgot about my birthday even though we told the waiter it was my birthday celebration and it was on my reservation. That was a bit disappointing.

Seated outdoors, a bit chilly. Server was wonderful. Hostess was able to accommodate a request for earlier seating on patio. Scallop en croute was amazing, so was the squash soup. Shared both with my dinner partner.

Start with the scallops in the puff pastry, it will be the best bite of food you will ever have had. Follow that with the duck, medium rare and it just melts in your mouth. The service was excellent and being that we were celebrating our son’s graduation from college they didn’t charge us for the corkage fee on our wine.

Our server Heather was great. She was personable, friendly, knowledgeable about the menu items, and accommodating. She came by several times to check in on us. We had the squash soup which was delicious. The soup had a rich broth, was velvety smooth and had a perfectly cooked scallop and a dollop of cream fraiche. It was outstanding. The scallop dish was fabulous. It arrived piping hot, and the flavor of the scallops with the slowly cooked fennel produced a wonderfully sweet dish. There was enough sauce that both a fork and spoon could be used. It was baked en croute and made for a delicious light dinner. The pasta special was a carbonara. The pasta was perfectly cooked and the sauce wasn’t too rich. It was excellent.

It was a fabulous evening. The atmosphere at Valette’s is warm, inviting, and casual and the food is very high quality with many special touches.
