My wife and I enjoyed the octopus Gigi, the best asparagus, and delicious chicken. Finished with some of their 15 bean vanilla ice cream. Service was professional and excellent. Going to go back the next time we are in Healdsburg.

My wife and I had reservations while in Healdsberg, and I wouldn't hesitate one second to eat here again. Wonderful rage of food selections on the menu. Very professional and helpful staff. Great bar. Relaxing atmosphere. Best meal I had while in CA. Eat here. You won't be disappointed.

My husband and I went here for our Valentine's Day dinner. This used to be the location of the best restaurant in town, Cyrus, so we expected it's replacement to also be a fine dining experience. While the food and service were good I would not call it fine dining. The ambiance was more bistro-like with some diners eating at... More

My boyfriend and I ate here on a Friday night. We had arrived early so we took a seat at the busy bar for pre-dinner drinks. The cocktails were well made/balanced and delicious and the bartenders were friendly and unpretentious. The crowd around us was mainly locals so there was a real convivial vibe. The woman sitting next to us... More

My husband and I decided to eat here for dinner after hearing great reviews. This is a tapas style restaurant and our server recommended ordering 4 plates for the 2 of us to share. The amount of food was just about right, but I must say we were somewhat disappointed with the quality of the food. The pork belly biscuits... More

We regularly go out to fine restaurants on date night. We came here for my birthday and it was superb. It was by far the best dining experience I've had in a long time. The food and service were amazing.

I remember when the formal, and delicious, Cyrus was in this space. It was a pleasant surprise, though, to walk into Chalkboard with it's casual, relaxed atmosphere. Chalkboard has a small but delectable menu. We started with the steak tartar, radish salad (which sounds boring but was bursting with flavor combined with avocado) and hiramasa crudo. All were great. Then... More

I've lived in California for just over two years. Went here once last year and again last week. By far the best food I've had out of the 100 restaurants I've eaten at in my time out here. Can't wait to go again!

Chalkboard Restaurant has a nice ambience, not too crazy, but good energy. Menu is varied with plenty of options from veggie to meats. Great inventive combinations. Staff is friendly, knowledgeable and pays attention (at just the right level, not hovering but ready as soon as you need anything). Located across the street from Healdsburg Square.

This is one of the best small plates dinners I've had. The wait staff know their menu options and wine list pairings. Local produce prepared in creative ways. Ate in the garden, took our time with each serving, sipping wine, watching the sun set...very nice.

Thank Jane B
