Our second visit to The Restaurant was horrendous

I had arranged a conference there and the banquets team and customer service was fantastic. But there were a couple of experiences that soured the trip not least of which was our dining experience at The Restaurant. My husband & I ate there and one of his colleagues was also dining there.

"I'm going to have to ask you sir to leave," said the manager to our friend who came to our table to say goodbye, "as this is not in keeping with the integrity of the restaurant". Apparently three Michelin stars means you can say what you like and the customers are supposed to be grateful for the opportunity to be... More

A tasting menu with perfect portions and lovely flavors. Garden fresh and creative. Beautifully plated and beautiful plates! Service well meaning if a little stiff.

With three Michelin stars, the Restaurant at Meadowood seemed like the sort of place we would love. We attended a food demonstration with chef Christopher Kostow a couple of years ago and we were impressed then by his presentation. We went with a friend who has been there several times and loved it, so we were really anticipating a great... More

I should start by saying my son is a young chef, well on his way to the top of his chosen profession/passion. So we were "dragged" to Meadowood during our last holidays in California as we were not able to secure a table a Thomas Keller's place. The high " price tag" to the meal being a bit of a... More

We had dinner at The Restaurant at Meadowood for special birthday celebrations. From start to finish, this was a superb experience. 12 courses, each dish presented, explained, any questions, clearly answered. Comfortably and warmly. The wine "experience" well complemented the entire meal, again with great clarity to what we were getting with each course. As a final farewell to a... More

This was an outstanding dining experience, from the moment we pulled up and they knew my name to the personalized menu we were sent home with it was a top notch dining experience. We went with the 12 course tasting and my husband went with the wine paring. It was extremely creative and very tasty. We sat at the bar... More

Food was good. Wine pairings were good too. Dessert was disappointing. Service was excellent. Doesn't sound like I'm describing something you'd pay $1000 for two people for, right? We didn't think so either. Nothing was bad by any means, but given that you could try three other Napa restaurants for the price...I'd skip it. We weren't hugely disappointed, but would... More

Yes, this restaurant costs an arm and a leg, but it's worth every penny. Every course was so creative, and the service absolutely impeccable. It's truly an experience!!
