I visited San Francisco and Santa Rosa a few weeks ago and had to recap one of the memorable dinners I had while on vacay. It was the last dinner in Healdsburg before we headed home. We made a reservation for a party of 8, but the host said we were free to check in early if we wanted to. We ended up arriving 30 minutes before our reservation, but the table was just finishing up, so we hit up the bar for a few rounds before we were seated.
The menu is centered around seafood and it's meant to be enjoyed family style. They are decently sized for tapas styled dishes and enough to share all around for our group of eight. I love these types of dining experiences since you can try a little bit of everything and we literally did just that.
What we got --
Steamers: Little Neck Clams
New England Style Rolls: Warm Main Lobster with Garlic Butter & Fennel
Skewers From the Grill: Marinated Chicken, Minted Lamb, BBQ Bacon Wrapped Scallops, Hanger Steak
Small Plates: Calamari, Kale Caesar, Fried Ipswich Clam Strips, Beet Salad, Uni Crab Orzotto, Cast Iron Fish & Chips
Table Favorites (we ordered multiples): Calamari (3x), Minted Lamb (2x), Lobster Roll (2x)
It was safe to say, we all left full and happy. Our bill was just about $220 or so, which was way less than I had guessed by the sheer amount of plates we cleared. The whole experience was pretty solid for a group dinner at $30/pp and I can't wait to come back again. Until next time!
