Healdsburg - Mirepoix, Santi, Willi's or Barndiva?

My husband and I are meeting my parents, who live in Philadelphia, up north (we're in L.A.) in July and we are taking them up to Healdsburg for a few days. I am going to try to book Cyrus, so I have the 2 months-before-date in my calendar. We have one more dinner to plan though, and I am thinking something more casual given we are (hopefully) doing Cyrus. Meaning no Forestville Inn or Dry Creek Kitchen.

I have loved Mirepoix in the past but the menu seems to have changed - I don't recall it being so French bistro-focused. Not sure how I feel about that. I have also been to Willi's. I have had some dishes I liked and others that were just ok, but it was fun. Finally, we did try Ravenous a few years back and had a disastrous dinner where they ran out of everything throughout the night and the food was just ok. I know several on the board like it -maybe we hit an off night?

Anyway, which of these would you choose?

1) Mirepoix
2) Santi
3) Willi's
4) Barndiva
5) Zin (I had a great lunch there once and we probably would do that again instead of dinner, though I can be persuaded)

I am not aware of any other standouts but do let me know if I've overlooked something.

Thanks in advance for your help. I promise to post a report (I still owe a report on my SF trip last month - Delfina and the R-C, but I will post it soon).
