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

Carpe Vino in Auburn is terrific and definitely worth the drive from Sacramento. (Thank you to my friend who offered to be the DD). Great service with even better suggestions on wine pairings. Between the four of us we sampled a lot of the menu, which is not extensive as it changes with the availability of local ingredients, and each... More

One of THE best restaurants in the Sacramento area. Excellent innovative food and friendly people who go out of their way to make you feel comfortable or to accommodate a special occasion. We have been there to celebrate large family occasions and small intimate celebrations. We have been pleased each and every time.

We absolutely love this place. They have a pretty big selection of wine from all over the world at really reasonable prices. The food is a little pricey but very good. The best thing is we usually buy a bottle or two or six of what we can taste. Steve is really good at picking a good wine when we... More

It was all perfect. The food, atmosphere, service, wine, all a great package. I made reservations 2 weeks in advance for our party of 4 which was a good idea because the place is fairly small. the waitress was very attentive and knew a great deal about the menu. We ordered wine off of the Kindle Fire wine list which... More
