1 night Sonoma/Healdsburg & 2 nights SF

My Fiance and I are headed to Sonoma and SF in Late July/early August and will take any suggestions people have.

1.) we are staying with friends one night in Petaluma, but will be driving around the wineries around Sonoma and up to Healdsburg the following day. Any suggestions on where to stay / eat in Sonoma or Healdsburg. We would rather not fork over the big bucks, but we would happily sacrifice lodging for good food.

2.) we will then be staying two nights in SF (staying in Union Square). I used to live there, but that was 10 years ago and so many restaurants have changed since then. The only place I know I want to go is Ristorante Parma in the Marina or Hyde Street Bistro in Nob Hill, but other than that we are open to suggestions. I am still trying to convince her that she doesn't "need" to see fisherman's warf.

Please let me know what you think.

  1. Sonoma/Healdsburg: zazu for the "Sonoma experience". Mirepoix for intimate dining. Farmhouse Inn for the best meal in Sonoma County. (Ok, I haven't been to Cyrus, but everyone I know who has says it isn't as good as Farmhouse Inn.)

    1. re: whiner

      I was at Farmhouse Inn last Saturday and it was amazing. I posted a pretty long review yesterday, you can still find it below.

    2. Take her to the Wharf but don't let her eat there! <grin>
