What a wonderful experience and a great way to celebrate my birthday! We were in the Vista Dome Car, the food was wonderful and our server Tami was so attentive and knowledgeable. We had the Alaskan Halibut and it was delicious! They started us off with a glass of champagne, then appetizer, lunch and dessert. We weren't rushed at all... More

From start to finish we were treated like royalty. We pretty much never had to ask for anything because our waitress was on her a game. Monica was her name and i would tell everyone who rides the dinner train to request her. Kati was most helpful in that she brought a wheel chair to my vehicle and got me... More

There's something about being on a training, isn't there? And especially when it's paired with great food, good wine and excellent service. That's what you get when you take a trip up valley on the NV Wine Train. Being a local, it's great to take advantage of all the Napa Valley has to offer. And...don't forget your Love Lock (look...

This is a must see while visiting Napa Valley. And if you take the Wine Train you must also plan to have lunch or dinner. The food is fabulous and prepared to order on the train as you travel up or down the valley depending on your dining arrangements. It also has a plan that allows for stopping at a... More

We did the wine train lunch and tour to the Chardon winery in Napa. This was a very unique event which we really enjoyed. The food was surprisingly fabulous!! The train itself was beautifully restored and provided a lovely setting. The staff was very nice, friendly and attentive. The wine tour was a blast - - lots of bubbly tastings!... More

This was a really neat experience. My wife's favorite in our entire trip to Napa. It's very nice, but casual. The food is really good too. We did the vista dome, which was well worth the money because you have an amazing view, and the server gives you kind of a tour of the napa valley as it moves along.

We did the evening dinner trip in the Vista Dome. The food was excellent and there were some nice choices for wine. The staff is very friendly and attentive without being overbearing. The cars have been well restored. We walked the entire train after dinner. The other cars are very nice, but the vista car is an experience like no... More

Not a bad experience but not great either. Assigned seating without given any preference - we got a small table for 2 on the sunny side of train - with the sun in my husbands eyes through the whole meal. There were empty larger tables on other side of train but we weren't allowed to move - they remained empty... More
