Exceptional dining experiences are plentiful. Many of the establishments leading Sonoma County’s farm-to-table movement can be found lining the streets of Healdsburg, including artisan bakeries, local wine bars and restaurants with locally-sourced ingredients from the surrounding gardens and farms. 

If you’re looking to spend a weekend in town, Healdsburg lodging includes grand luxury hotels and several intimate inns. After checking in, you can start the day with a tasting of sparkling wine and pinot noir at any of the dozens of vineyards in the area.

And once the sun sets, you can find farm-fresh foods and craft cocktails at any of the exceptional dining venues in and around Healdsburg Plaza. See our list below for some local favorites.
