I remember when the formal, and delicious, Cyrus was in this space. It was a pleasant surprise, though, to walk into Chalkboard with it's casual, relaxed atmosphere. Chalkboard has a small but delectable menu. We started with the steak tartar, radish salad (which sounds boring but was bursting with flavor combined with avocado) and hiramasa crudo. All were great. Then... More

I've lived in California for just over two years. Went here once last year and again last week. By far the best food I've had out of the 100 restaurants I've eaten at in my time out here. Can't wait to go again!

Chalkboard Restaurant has a nice ambience, not too crazy, but good energy. Menu is varied with plenty of options from veggie to meats. Great inventive combinations. Staff is friendly, knowledgeable and pays attention (at just the right level, not hovering but ready as soon as you need anything). Located across the street from Healdsburg Square.

This is one of the best small plates dinners I've had. The wait staff know their menu options and wine list pairings. Local produce prepared in creative ways. Ate in the garden, took our time with each serving, sipping wine, watching the sun set...very nice.

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
