"A pleasant little neighborhood place. The lighting is a bit weird, but otherwise simple but pleasant. The food was all good - nothing new or exciting, but very generous portions were nicely prepared."

In a delicious mix of cultures, the Yucatán-born chef Mateo Granados has created a unique signature that celebrates rigorously sourced local and sustainable Sonoma ingredients infused with the vibrant regional flavors of his homeland, crafted with classic French finesse, and sparked with playful spirit.

"Nice patio, but would be even nicer with some blooming flowers to offset the gravel (don't wear heels). Fresh tasty guacamole was overpriced, served with over-fried unsalted tostadas. The fish tacos were bland and gritty, overcooked and under seasoned. The few pieces of lettuce added little, as did the tomato salad. Service was robotic and impersonal. SO many better places to eat in Healdsburg!"

Experience Urchin Bistrot in the heart of the Mission. Chefs Hiro Sone and Lissa Doumani have crafted a neighborhood casual destination. This 100 seat modern French bistro serves updated classics along with a modern twist. The cuisine is market-driven with a vibrant cocktail program and an inspired wine list. Serving dinner nightly, Urchin features an ala carte menu in addition to a 4 course prix fixe menu. Urchin welcomes large parties and hosts private events up to 90 guests.

"Nice menu, generous portions, well executed. Service very cordial and welcoming. We were seated upstairs, and it's a bit bleak - not festive or warm. Allow time for parking - valet service not yet available."

"The good - easy street parking, open fairly early. The bad - chipped cup, beverages arrived at different times, cream came after coffee was cold, had to request spoon. Refills not forthcoming. Pancakes needed salt in batter, orange flavor missing. Overall mediocre."

When we opened the doors of our tiny restaurant in December 2006, our goal was to make Piccino as welcoming as the home of a close friend, our food as simple and beautifully executed as possible. We"re honored that Piccino became a thriving hub of the community. And in May of 2011 we moved from our original space into a new home (dubbed The Yellow Building) on the corner of 22nd & Minnesota Streets, which we share with our friends MAC (Modern Appealing Clothing), and DIG wine shop.<br /> <br />Our menu still features the classic and seasonally driven thin-crust pizzas and polpette (Tuscan-style pork and beef meatballs) Piccino is known for; our salads and soups use the finest organic produce sourced directly from small local farms. Piccino's menu has expanded to include more small starter plates, house-made pastas, contorni (vegetable sides), and special entrees of meat, fish, or poultry. Seasonal desserts and expertly made coffee complete our daily offerings.

"They were having a bad morning. Brunch is usually excellent. The pastry basket was delicious. Mains overcooked, under seasoned. The server didn't return until we were finished, no refills on coffee or tea. Expensive for food that shouldn't have been served."

Terzo (which means third in Italian) offers a daily changing menu of about 15 small plates and 5 large plates. Its “pan-Mediterranean” fare is under the care of Executive Chef Mark Gordon. The wine list offers over 80 options of European and Californian wines chosen to pair with the food.<br /><br />A high table sits between the bar and dining room and offers communal style seating for up to 10 diners. Additional walk-in seating is available on 3 high tops in the front window. Espresso leather banquets line the dining room. A more intimate back dining room can be booked for private parties of up to 18.<br /><br />Inspired by the wine bars and cafes of Sicily, Rome, Seville & Madrid, wines are stored along the walls of the dining room. An original fireplace was refurbished and is lit when the weather is chilly out. Stylish lighting creates a chic atmosphere.

"The chef was having a bad night. Everything was either under seasoned - or over seasoned. This place used to be really excellent, but this time it was mediocre at best."
