We really enjoyed the trip. The dinner was very good (was it "gourmet"? - thats up to each guest to define) and the service couldn't have been better.

We made a reservation for the evening departure on the "wine train" to celebrate our anniversary and we could not have made a better choice. The food was superb with several choices and something for everyone. The quality was excellent and the portions just right. The servers were very attentive without being overbearing. They were all very knowledgeable about the... More

The service in the dining room was excellent. The food was good, but not "gourmet". The $10 wine tasting was nice. It was a beautiful day and a nice way to spend my birthday. I appreciated the gift of coasters. Recommendation: Make this one of the first activities you do in Napa. We did this at the end of the... More

This train experience is overrated - the staff is rude and very un-helpful. They threatened someone in our party and were extremely rude to my sister who cried over a emotional gift from her Children. The wine was not good and the food is over rated not worth the money paid - we were a group of 9 and all... More

The wine train was the most enjoyable part of our vacation. The scenery was beautiful! We were able to experience a large portion of the wine country at ease while in the comfort of the beautifully decorated train. We were served a delicious appetizer and then a first class, three course lunch in the dining car. We were able to... More

My husband, our friends and I went to a Vintner's Luncheon in the Vista Dome on the Wine Train. We had so much fun! The chef, Kelly and the Vintner, Dario of Castello di Amarosa created a one time only menu of great food paired with perfect wines. I saw the menu in advance and told my husband I didn't... More
