Description: Spoonbar Chef Louis Maldonado serves a menu of clean and simple dishes honoring America’s diverse culinary influences. His artfully-crafted, market-driven cuisine of fresh, bold flavors is built around seasonally-inspired local and sustainable ingredients. The same focus carries over to Spoonbar’s cocktails which use specially sourced organically-grown herbs, fruits and vegetables with an emphasis on locally and domestically produced spirits. Freeform tables made from reclaimed acacia surround a long, communal table crafted from a split tree. Splashes of color—from the turquoise Eames chairs to the golden floral three dimensional wall art—brighten the open space like dappled sunshine filtering through summer leaves. On warm days and evenings the restaurant’s Cantina doors open up to sidewalk dining.

“Coolest cocktails & bizarre food combinations”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

This place is great fun. Their cocktail menu is large and creative, they offer drinks called "The Carbonated Corpse Reviver #2" or "You've Lost That Loving Feeling" that are absolutely fantastic! plus a "cocktails on tap" menu. You can get your regular martini too, but it would be a shame to miss a chance to try Spoonbar's twist on classics. Their wine list is also extensive and local.
Foodwise it was w-e-i-r-d. Weird good, though. Actually weird-excellent. All local prime ingredients put together in surprising ways that taste amazing! We were three hungry people so we tried at least 8 dishes all really creative and delicious. They pride on local and seasonal, so what we had is probably not what y'all will. They do post their menu on the website.
The restaurant is minimalist and gorgeous and service was spotless... and we were a little drunk.
But I swear it's absolutely worth giving it a try.

“Great atmosphere, food and drinks”
Reviewed 30 June 2014

Great atmosphere - great looking place, super busy and happening - right off the main street in town. We arrived on time but the table wasn't ready for quite a while and no where to stand at the bar for a drink. Service was mostly slow - but the food and cocktails were GREAT. Both the lamb and pork were great dishes. Even the snacks (especially chicken crackling and the potatoes were awesome).

Very nice menu and very nice drinks! Highly recommend a visit if in town.

“Over priced”
Reviewed 29 June 2014

Menu is limited and the food is only average. Expensive for a lousy menu. The bar is the only redeeming feature.

“There is a reason why this restaurant made the top 100 best in the bay area”
Reviewed 21 June 2014

We made reservations a few weeks in advance and drove up from San Francisco to find out why Michael Bauer put this restaurant on the top 100 in the bay area...well we were so impressed! Everything was amazing - from the service, decor, drinks, and of course the food. Everything was beautifully presented and delicious. The waiter even ordered a pizza for our children at a nearby restaurant and had it delivered for our children! This restaurant is great for a date or family. It is super trendy and right on main street in Healdsburg. We didn't try the specialty drinks but they looked good. The wine selection was extensive as well. My favorite Healdsburg restaurant!

“What's New? This month's cocktails!”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

Vibrant bar scene, with street-side seating at the bar to watch the World go by while enjoying your favorite cocktail. Classics are expertly crafted with a twist, or try something new from their evolving cocktail list -- they're all excellent.

Looks like June is rum month, saying "goodbye" to some interesting gin creations (although you can still order those, or your favorite).
