Chef Valette's kitchen is a place of creative collaboration. Our menu is a modern ode to Healdsburg’s micro-seasonal ingredients, exploring the possibilities of a locally foraged fungi from a secret stand on the slopes of rolling forest, or the range of a Purple Heart tomato cultivated from a farm within walking distance to the restaurant. For Chef Nate Davis and team, finding the limitlessness in the specific moment is a play of craft and passion.

    Fantastic dining experience. The tasting menu was excellent….yellow fin tuna tartare, a pasta dish, skate, and different cuts of lamb. Really Really exceptional. Their Somm Homer was the consumable professional…very knowledgeable (recommended a great local Riesling), and the service team was 3-star. Could not have had a better experience. Highest recommendation and all accolades well deserved.

    Remi was our server and he was EXCELLENT!!! He was very helpful and reminded us about the discounted appetizers before 6:00 pm, which was very nice of him. The mushroom appetizer was delicious!! We celebrated our 36 Wedding Anniversary and the bubbly wine was nice to start with and the desert at the end was just enough. Overall, it was a great evening. There clearly has been some significant changes that were made since the last time we attend, please keep improving. Great evening.

    Flawless execution. That’s how I would describe the experience at The Matheson. Everything from the moment we arrived until we paid the bill and departed was wonderful. The four of us shared two of the vegetarian appetizers; we especially loved the Maytaki mushroom appetizer. I ordered seafood. I ordered the Skate, and I love the way it was prepared. We shared the featured dessert which was excellent.

    We were visiting Healdsburg for the Memorial weekend and last night was our first time eating at The Matheson. Everything was excellent. Our duck appetizer, excellent salad, one lamb and one chicken entree. The service was excellent and friendly. We will definitely eat there again next time we visit Healdsburg.
