My husband and I previously ate at a New York restaurant with a blue door, the experience at Meadowood in no way compares. I'll start with the simple things: no view, robotic service, no warmth, no fun!!!. Come on, you can't possibly think we would be satisfied with just good food, that should be a given, it's your business, although... More

We arrived to Meadowood with another couple after a long car ride through traffic from SFO. We had reservations at 9pm at "The Restaurant" and while we were a bit tired from traveling (the other couple had flown in from Chicago) we looked forward to a great meal and some great wine. Things got weird immediately, my friend's heel got... More

What a wonderful place. My husband and I had a magnificent meal there. This is fabulously executed cuisine together with an inventiveness that is truly impressive. One understands how they received three Michelin stars. It is a little pointless to try and compare them with the French Laundry - both are superb, but in different styles. Meadowood is more innovative... More

From the moment we arrived in our car, I knew our night would be special. The valet greeted us by name, then someone else escorted us to the front doors. When we got inside, again we were greeted by name and immediately led to our table. The décor of the restaurant is beautiful with many natural elements and soft lighting.... More

The food, the dining experience, everything was amazing at The Restaurant at Meadowood. The space is beautiful, and really cozy. We really felt like we were enjoying our own private meal, even though there were people at other tables. The service was understated but warm and professional. We loved it here. From the very first snacks right down to the... More

Let me start by saying the only reason I did not give an excellent rating is that is supposed to be a 3 star Michelin restaurant and probably the service standard fall a bit short...probably 2 stars. Having said that, it was our best meal in Napa. We went to Madera, La Toque, Bouchon and French Laundry and for overall... More

To say that we were disappointed is an understatement. Our goal this summer was to visit a 3-starred Michelin restaurant in every city we visited. We did so in NYC, Chicago and SF/Napa. Having dined in various locales around the world , we had high expectations for The Restaurant. It was also the third 3-star Michelin we visited this summer... More

We ate with some friends at Meadowood and truly enjoy our meal. The dining room was beautiful, the service impeccable and the food was innovative, intriguing and delicious. My only complaint is that I think the chef is trying to be more creative then necessarily focusing in on his flavors. Having said that I am splitting hairs, if the presentation... More

If you are looking for a Michelin star experience, go some place else. Go to French Laundry. I have eaten at wonderful restaurants of this level all over the world and this is the first one that I have had such a strong reaction to and will never go back to. I was with a group of 20+ people and... More

What an exceptional evening we spent at The Restaurant at Meadowood. With a knowledgeable and highly service-oriented staff, we were delighted with every dish. The range of options was very special, the pacing of the meal was perfect and the recommendations from the sommelier were excellent. The presentation of each dish was artfully done.
