If you don't have time for a full meal, I strongly recommend enjoying the bar lounge and the tasting menu available. While it isn't the full restaurant experience, you will get a good sample of the style and techniques of the culinary team - Chef Kostow may even stop by.

Recently, a few of my gourmet friends invited my wife and I to join their Christmas season celebrations at this restaurant. We had a wonderful dinning experience. Except for one undistinguished course (egg white), I enjoyed all other courses in the tasting menu. Although some of the dishes were crafted by the guest Chef Gauthier from France and may not...

On my most recent of three trips to Yountville, CA (Napa area), I enjoyed my first visit to Meadowood restaurant. After having eaten twice before at French Laundry, I was excited to try Meadowood. I found The Restaurant at Meadowood to be absolutely wonderful in every way. I would definitely return to this restaurant as often as possible, and hopefully... More

So much hype about a stuffy, condescending, and inexperienced staff! A lot of $$$$ for very little food and too much focus on presentation - overdone! There's too many excellent restaurants in Napa to bother with all this nonsense!

The Restaurant at the Meadowood will likely long be in my top dining experiences. Everything could not have been more perfect. The staff was friendly yet not intrusive. The sommelier absolutely spot on. The atmosphere perfect. And as far as the food?? I will quote my German Chef friend who when asked what were the top three things on our... More

From the welcome by the staff and having a drink in the lounge through the end of the evening, a world class experience. The staff is great and very professional and of course the food it just extraordinary. The choice of dishes and the presentation is unbelievable, each course like an artwork. I also liked the fact that it was... More

Chef Christopher Kostow and Director Nathaniel Dorn combined to earn only the 2nd Michelin Three Star rating west of Chicago.The restaurant is everything it is touted for, the extraordinary treatment of almost anything edible, the creative presentation of every course on a different and mostly custom designed serving piece, the incredible West Point precision service and a spectacular wine selection...

Having 3 Michelin stars means that the food is so good, the restaurant is worth a trip to the area just to eat there. This is very much the truth when it comes to The Restaurant at Meadowood. This was one of the best meals I've ever had, and I've dined at some of the top restaurants in Europe and... More

Chef Chris will delight you in a culinary taste adventure, some of the most amazing foods I have ever had the delight of eating. Service is delightful, helpful and always pleasant, we go one to two times a year just to eat Chef's newest creations!
