I love this resturant! It is romantic and quaint right in the heart of Auburn. The dinners are gourmet with a beautiful presentation. The wine selection is fabulous and very inexpensive. Perfect place to celebrate a birthday or anniversary with someone special!

This is a very fine, charming, wonderful restaurant in Auburn California's Old Town. We were here with the same friends eight years ago and the superb quality has sustained over the years. Service is stellar, informative if you have questions about the area, wineries, etc., but unintrusive otherwise. Our table had the popcorn while we chose a wine, and the... More

This is one of the best restaurants that my wife and I have ever dined at worldwide. A fantastic chef is always crafting an ever changing menu and the knowledgable staff are experts in pairing wines with every course of the meal. If you like a wine, you can always take home a case! The wines are priced less than... More

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.
