We have had excellent meals here and meals that were so salt heavy they had to be sent back. They are creative, and for that we give them a good score.

Had a great dinner here, was torn on the rating. We had been here when the space was Cyrus. Overall we ordered a lot, some was just good while a few dishes were amazing. Highlights: -duck confit pasta. Unbelievable taste, super rich and a foie gras butter that was one of the most decadent flavors we've had -big eye tuna... More

Just visited this great restaurant the other night and it was even better than two years' ago, if that's possible. Although we ordered way too much food (3-4 dishes a person, which tallied up rather quickly), we had a thoroughly enjoyable, tasty, and terrific meal. Some of the highlights included the grilled octopus and potatoes, the pork belly biscuits, and... More

Very fun cocktails, great shared plates and don't miss the shot of pumpkin soup, it's delicious! The short rib ragout and day boat scallops were also especially good...and my son LOVED the bourbon ice cream to finish!

We had just arrived in Healdsburg that evening, after a long drive with a great deal of traffic. Our innkeeper suggested a restaurant, but when we got to it, we found that it was closed for the day. However, just around the corner we stumbled on The Chalkboard and it turned out to be a real delight. The service was... More

While on our 10 day tour of wine counties in CA we dined at this restaurant per a recommendation of a local. The menu items were eclectic and in some instances playful (sliders with a twist) Everything we ordered was divine. The service was also excellent. The wine by the glass list was adequate but a bit on the high... More

We decided to dine here after reading the great reviews. Our waiter, Tony, was awesome. He made great recommendations (and turned us onto some great wineries that we visited.) This is a fun place to share small plates.

We loved this place! It is similar to a tapas format where the food comes in small portions that are meant to be shared. Because we all sampled the item the others ordered we all discovered some great food we would have otherwise missed. The service was great, also. The waitress was cheerful and prompt despite our repeated requests for... More

Chalkboard had been recommended to me by a few people so maybe I just higher hopes for it. We had an amazing meal the night before at Scopa so I was also coming off of that high. There was nothing bad, just nothing spectacular. Service was fine, not very personal or overly friendly, which is fine but just changes the... More
