I had a pleasure of dining at The Restaurant this past week and I am left amazed. The entire experience was beyond perfect. My boyfriend stated it was "the best dinner he's ever had in his life..." When we arrived we chatted with the front room staff, everyone was very warm and personable. We were seated at a (2) person... More

We had high expectations for this three Michelin star restaurant. Maybe we were expecting too much, but we were hoping for exceptionally tasty, but also creative food. Said that food was generally good, but not exceptional. If you never went to any restaurant like this, you might be in awe, but we did, and we know it could be better.... More

You may have to take out a second mortgage, but the experience is worth every penny! Try to book the chef's table in the kitchen for a unique viewpoint. Either way, the food is amazing.

I know that I will be in the minority in my comments but this is the only restaurant I have ever asked for my check half way through the tasting as I was completely disappointed in the food. I have dined at many of the finest restaurants in the world and I expected this to be another exceptional experience based... More

Never had better service in my life. The food was like art. Everything is so meticulously considered and executed. The Sommelier was spot on with his recommendation of wonderful Napa white called Mathiasson. Was served one course on an open book. The service plates were all creatively selected and the food presented beautifully. Make sure you book early, and take... More

The Meadowood was the best meal we had in Napa Valley period. Upon arrival, you are greeted with a relaxed, yet formal air. The mood is elegant, but not stuffy or dramatic. We dined at the bar, and enjoyed watching the exciting cocktails being created all night. Our first course was potato cooked in beeswax, the least impressive course of... More

It was the last night of our honeymoon and we wanted to celebrate the special occasion with a nice dinner at the restaurant. We have been to several one, two and three Michelin star restaurants before and we always enjoyed the service and food. We expected superior food and service from "The Restaurant". We made the reservation online for the... More

The meal of ten tasting courses wasn't worth $225pp. Much better restaurants nearby at a more reasonable cost (eg, $75pp).

Dined at the establishment 2 weeks ago with friends, a party of 6 in total. Our late arrival (6.15pm for a 5.45pm reservation) was met with ease, and we were warmly welcomed once we arrived. I'm going to describe the experience overall, as I can't quite remember the intricate details of the many portions and dishes which were presented and... More
