    It was like sitting in a dungeon directly across of the wine cooler. Way too much traffic. Should have asked for a better table…the place was empty at 5pm. Food was very good. Service ok.

    Last Friday, we ate dinner at Goodnights for the third time, hoping to get a consistent high quality meal. As locals, we really want this place to deliver on its build up. The staff is terrific, efficient and very friendly — bravo! The renovated two-story space very fun as is small upstairs bar. Sadly, the food just fails to impress. Dry, sad looking Wagu beef; huge baked potatoes that sat so long prior to service they were dry and tasteless despite all the many toppings baked in; sad mushrooms, lackluster salads and dried out Parker House rolls. The filet mignon cooked medium rare is the only item that has been EXPERTLY prepared and presented on ALL three visits. Don’t sit in the last two banquets downstairs near storage room and bathroom — best to request upstairs or way in front of first floor. Last, the chef wandered around the restaurant so much, on each of our visits, it’s no surprise the kitchen staff is barely performing. We so want Goodnights to succeed. Hope this well-intentioned review encourages owner and staff to focus on what is expected from a high end restaurant in our renowned food and wine destination.

    We enjoyed the winter prix fixe reasonably priced dinner at $65/head. Bibb lettuce salad, ribeye steak and coffee custard were all delicious. Service was friendly, knowledgeable and professional. Texas ranger décor throughout is an interesting choice for this region.

    Pros: Oysters, steak, and Brussels sprouts were all excellent, service was also good. cons: The only negative was the $40/bottle corkage fee. This seems exceptionally high. It would be nice to have some choice on the menu that were smaller portions. nonetheless, I would recommend this place particularly if you want a perfectly cooked steak.

    Wonderful evening! The food was delicious, the steak was cooked perfectly, pomme purée was velvet, the apps and bread were great as well. The skillet cake was a bit too salty, not sure if that was intentional. Our server was attentive and fun, the one star knock was more of the service from the kitchen. While food was delicious, the kitchen was slammed. I can empathize because I work in the industry, it could have been anything from people calling out, or just under staffed but the time lag between courses was too long. I would still definitely return because everyone has a night like that. Thanks!

    The wagyu was the star, our waitress was amazing but the sides left a lot to be desired. There is a bit lacking in menu diversity, it is probably a place your dad would love.

    This was our first time dining here, and we will definitely be back! Service was impeccable. Food: we had the house rolls which were amazing with the whipped butter. Bibb salad was ok. I didn’t like that I had to cut up the lettuce myself in order to eat it. It was fresh, but could’ve used some additional flavor profiles. For $16, I wouldn’t order again. Bone-in ribeye was WONDERFUL! Comes with one sauce and salt. We did the bearnaise and truffle salt. So good! We asked for it to NOT be sliced, but alas, it arrived sliced. Not a huge deal, but for $85 I would want it to come exactly how we ordered. Nonetheless, it was still so delicious. Also ordered the puréed potatoes - very yummy! Drinks: Ordered a whiskey sour and the North to Alaska. Whiskey sour was super tasty, North to Alaska was ok. Wouldn’t order again. Probably just stick to whiskey, vodka, wine/beer here. We did order a second round of drinks right before dinner was served to our table, and ended up cancelling because we had finished our food and were still waiting on the drinks. All in all, great restaurant - definitely recommend! If you’re dining on the weekend, make earlier reservations. Once the restaurant gets busier around 6:30-7:00pm, it seems that the service slows quite a bit.

    Great service. Beautiful restaurant. Rolls and tuna tartare were amazing. The ribeye was definitely not medium like we ordered, but still tasty. It was a bit too charred on the outside as well.

    Unfortunately we were disappointed our second experience here. Took about an hour plus to get our food and some was wrong. Got our check and charged us for the wrong food on top of the rest. It was disappointing as we brought friends because we enjoyed our first time. Food was delicious just took too long. Bathroom needed attention as well. Not sure when our next visit will be.

    Steaks (had NY Strip) are outstanding. Parker House Rolls are delicious (sweet, with a tiny bit of salt on top for that savory edge), mashed potatoes side, fries side, and shrimp appetizer -- all delicious. This place is on the top of the pricey side, so it must be taken into consideration, but it is excellent.

    For starters I had the Bibb lettuce salad which was quite nice. My spouse had the ahi tartare which he enjoyed. I had the filet mignon, my spouse had the duck, both were excellent, I had creamed spinach which was bland except for the taste of nutmeg. For dessert we shared the strawberry rosemary sorbet. Despite its lovely pink color you couldn’t taste any strawberry and the rosemary flavor dominated. Nice cocktail and after dinner drink menu. It got pretty loud as a party of eight women were seated next to us. I’m not sure we’ll return as I’m not that into cowboy decor or noisy restaurants and I thought the steaks though excellent were on the pricy side.

    The Wagyu steak was outstanding. The rib eye steak is excellent, the chef really knows how to cook a steak and all the side dishes are good. For whatever reason, the service this time was sad - we asked a number of times for our champagne to be opened, then we had to serve ourselves. Our waitress who we knew from the first time and we like her, disappeared for really long moments. It was my birthday and my sister’s which I noted on our resy. Not much recognition of that.

    We went here on a whim. I had tickets to a show at Luther Burbank and was coming from Ukiah. Didn't want to go all the way to Santa Rosa and decided a reservation in Healdsburg would be better. I did a google search for restaurants in Healdsburg and just chose this place. Our server was Lisa, I think was her name, and she was outstanding. Made us feel really at home, gave us the history of the restaurant/building/owner. I like that stuff. Our food was amazing! I've been to several family style premium steak joints and this one was the best. There were three of us and we got the shareable ribeye, cooked to perfection. They have a variety of sauces and flavored salts to choose from. We got the chimichurri and the truffle salt - both were great! Mashed potatoes, Brussels, fried mushrooms, all wonderful - and the bread....oh my, the bread!. Ambiance was great, dessert really interesting and yummy, there was music, but you could still hear each other, and the staff was amazingly courteous and warm. It's not cheap, but you get what you pay for!

    The food was definitely overpriced, and the quality was OK. Our server was nice and several management came in to check in on us because there was issues with the drink, not getting our drinks in a timely manner and then we were told we were going to get it taken off our check and it wasn’t. The Wagyu steak was delicious. However, you will get more full off of the sides than you would your main dish. The banana split sundae was over priced as well but that’s what you get for living in Healdsburg. The staff was really nice. I would recommend it for those that don’t care about a budget.

    We were initially sat at a bar height table and asked to move, they were very gracious in accommodating our request. We found all the servers to be very nice and helpful throughout our experience. Unfortunately the food is not worth the price. We got the oysters (as you’d expect them to be), the mushroom starter was tasty, as was the salad we got. We got the wagyu and tomahawk for steaks, and the potato puree for our side. The potatoes were gloppy yet stiff? And they had almost no flavor. The wagyu was fine but the tomahawk was full of gristle and way undercooked from what we requested. I think this spot has potential but we may not go back.

    Upstairs was quiet on a Tuesday night, and the food and service were outstanding. The meat we ordered, filet and sirloin bavette, was perfectly cooked, and baked potato huge and delicious. Our burrata starter was unique with a blend of olive and bell pepper tampenade which was so tasty spread on the lightly grilled bread. Ambiance is open and comfortable. Servings plenty large for leftovers. Servers, hostess and chef all friendly and seemed genuinely pleased that we were enjoying ourselves.
