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

This little bar and restaurant (and wine club) is stuck away in downtown, old town Auburn, CA. The food is excellent, the wine is better and the staff is the best! Well worth visiting anytime and even more so in the holiday season!!!

Our waiter's 8 years experience ,all at Carpe Vino, assured us great service. The service WAS superb. Food choices were interesting and we both found "must haves". The unpleasant part of the experience was that we were both so cold that speech was difficult. Coffee was needed for the hot cup's comfort. Don't pass up a chance to try this... More

On our way back to Napa from Tahoe, we stopped in Auburn and were lucky enough to stumble on this awesome little restaurant. The food is innovative and fresh! Everything was incredibly delicious. The salmon dish and vegetable ravioli are outstanding. And don't miss the butterscotch desert!! They also have an incredible wine list! The staff is wonderful and friendly.... More

We often go to Old Town Auburn just to eat breakfast at Awful Annie's, but never really thought about Carpe Vino until some friends invited us to have dinner there. There were four in the party, the dinner reservation was at 8 o'clock and we were promptly seated in a small room that appeared to be one of several small... More

We have been there 5 times over the last several years and it is consistently very good. Carpe Vino also has an exceptional list of wines available.

We ate there in July, and were so impressed. The food was top quality, and the wines were very impressive. What I liked most about it was that since it is also a wine shop, they pulled your wines directly off the shelves and charged you retail, not the outrageous prices you get in a restaurant. The only drawback was... More

We had been hearing of CV for ages...We were not disappointed. The wines are plentiful and well priced. The food options fresh, fun and delicious. The Truffle popcorn appy is not to be missed. The gazpacho was incredible. Meatballs, Duck entree, Pasta, Filet. Four of us dined well and were all pleased with each choice. Service was great, and ambiance... More

Beautiful historic building in old town auburn. If you like good seasonal food and wine then this is the place to dine! Try the beet salad. Sublime! The peach profiteroles were yummy,too. The pork chop was a little on the dry side. Cailey was our waitress. She really knows her wines! They sell some great wines by the glass and... More

I have been going Carpe Vino for a few years now and have never been let down. The building itself is rustic but the ambiance is amazing. The wine list is large and all the waiters are helpful in aiding you with picking wine appropriate for your meal. Chef Alexander puts together a theme meal monthly and they are called... More
