Best dining "experience" ever

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... read more

I'm used to starred (Daniel's, Marea's, Compton Place, etc-heck most fine restaurants) accommodating guests dietary restrictions. My hubby is a brittle diabetic and we asked for a diabetic friendly dessert. He gets few fabulous desserts and such a treat when we go to a fine restaurant and they make something tasty and special for him. I called and said they... More

Visited with my wife and another couple - we had booked well in advance and were treated like VIPs from the moment we arrived. The food was spectacularly presented and introduced by the team who served us with charm and enthusiasm. Highly recommended for an experience that we all agreed we would remember for years to come. Particularly impressed by... More

Bottom line is that this restaurant just doesn't stack up to other options in the valley. We ate at Saison in SF the night before and the French Laundry after. Both were much better meals in terms of food and service. This restaurant was more "stuck up" than the others in every respect. The food was hit and miss. The... More

Being foodies on a budget, this was our first Michelin stared experience and we were blown out of the water. The food was out of this world - I can't imagine anything better. We had experienced "food giggles" in the past but never full blown "food induced laughter." The staff was appropriately courteous, until they figured out we were a... More

"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

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. When his colleague had finished his meal he... 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
