This is an excellent restaurant!!

This restaurant is top notch. I enjoyed the foie gra appetizer. The pork chop and veal breast delicious. The. beet salad excellent yum. Next time I want to try a tasting menu. The quality of the ingredients and the sophisticated way they are used in each dish is very impressive! I will be back.

Carpe Vino generally does 8 to 10 Prix-Fixe dinners per year – all themed and in tune with seasonal ingredients. We made our reservations well ahead of time (Open Table) as they sell out rapidly and were able to get the date and time that worked best for our schedules. This restaurant is about 40 minutes from our home and... More

Chef Eric always pleases with his locally sourced creative dishes. This is the foodie delight of the Foothills, is equal to the best of Sacramento and the Bay area. There is good reason that Carpe Vino made Sacramento Bee's top 10 for 2014.

This is a classy little spot for a quick pop in for wine and a snack, or for an evening of enjoying small plates. All of their dishes are delicious and they have a killer selection of wine. The atmosphere is cozy and romantic… A wonderful place for a date night or a night out with the girls.

An impressive wine selection comes with very knowledgeable bar tenders. The food is limited but very delicious and a little pricey, but for a little splurge it's a great night out.

After many visits, over several years,to this restaurant I can say that they are one of the few that I would almost guarantee good service and a great meal every time. It will not be inexpensive, but you do get what you pay for here. The wine selection is varied and excellent. The servers are very well educated in the... More

Great selection of local and rare wines. Wine bar is warm and inviting, but the restaurant is a real hit. Food is great, and you can chose any bottle from the wine bar to accompany your food.

While a bit pricey, the menu offers some interesting items. Quality was great and presentation was very nice. Their wine did not impress me. Many obscure , small wineries and young wines! We had a $75 Cab from Napa (recommended by the waiter) that was so tannic it would close your throat.he decanted it to...open it up. This wine wouldn't... More

Carpe Vino is an outstanding dinner venue. The food is excellent and the menu changes often. And they have many theme menus throughout the year. The service is excellent and always warm and attentive. Carpe Vino is also known for its wine list. You will always find a great wine to go with your dinner choice. And the wine prices... More

My husband celebrated our 35th wedding anniversary about 3 weeks late at Carpe Vino. As I made the reservations online, I included a note about our anniversary. We were seated at a table window overlooking the lit up street, and were surprised with a custom card from the restaurant congratulating us on our anniversary. A very nice touch to start... More
