We stayed at The Lodge and ate at the Carneros Bistro once for dinner and once for breakfast. Both experiences were very good. The food is delicious and creative. The service was very good also. One person in our party had a salmon entree which she felt was the best she had ever eaten. Highly recommended.

We ate here for a dinner and breakfast during our stay at the adjoining hotel. At the dinner the service was very poor. One of our party ordered a steak. Everyone else's meal came out and it was obvious that they forgot to cook the steak. When it finally came it was raw, not medium as ordered. Had to send... More

Poor bar service, poor wine selection. Food is just average. The only thing they have going for them is location. They are on the plaza and it looks "cute". Big disappointment in the overall experience.

We had dinner at Carneros with a large party. Everyone enjoyed it greatly. Lovely wine selections, excellent service, and our meals were perfectly prepared and well timed. I would happily stay on property and eat anytime!

We tried this restaurant since they are apart of the hotel that we normally stay at. It was so-so and pricey. The food went in odd spice directions and everything we tried I would not eat again. I would not dine there again.

We had a lovely dinner at Caneros . My husband was very happy with the special that evening of halibut. I would have to say I was less happy with the pork dish, just not much taste. Food presentation was lovely, and service very well done. We had a second, late night meal at the bar. Wood-fired pizza was wonderful,... More

My wife and I shared the grilled octopus appetizer which was delicious but that was the best dish we had. My Greek salad was fine but overwhelmed with at least 15 olives....my wife had corn soup which she rated o.k. My wife had grilled fresh salmon and I had pork.....both were over cooked and very salty. But we did enjoy... More

I ordered the salmon entree and it was delicious. It was perfectly cooked and well seasoned. My husband had the rib eye special which was advertised as blue cheese crusted. He felt it was false advertised as there was no crusting on his steak. We both had the beuno vista pinot noir which was fabulous (bought a couple bottles from... More

We sat at the bar. The bar tender looked to be on his game until several females came in. Wood fired pizza very good made at the bar counter.
