We drove up to the Napa Valley from San Francisco and had lunch. They offered both a tasting menu and lunch menu. Because of time constraints, we went with the regular lunch menu. Everything was delightful. One of our party had the heirloom tomato salad as an appetizer; another had the oysters, which featured several varieties from various locations. Our... More

19 minutes before our reservation, they send me a reservation cancel notice due to a power outage....scrambling, we end up at Brix which was not good at all. Very disappointing.

The combination of good wine and great food makes this a very enjoyable experience, and the grounds are beautiful and peaceful. It is a very relaxing place. I had the salmon and liked it very much, and others had the beef tenderloin and enjoyed it. The appetizers were good, and the chocolate cake was great.

We hadn't been to Chandon in many years, but it was even better than remembered. The food was outstanding, as can be expected in many restaurants in Napa, but even better was the service. The restaurant is roomy and comfortable (loved the side-by-side booth) and while elegant and romantic it is not pretentious. This is true fine dining in a... More

We were offered outside seating and heaters for a chilly night. Despite of the fact that we were the last party to be served, service , meals, ambiance was simply exceptional. Exactly as we expected! We would like to... More

Although we arrived early for our reservation, we were seated immediately. This set the tone for a remarkable lunch. The location, although not on the coast, is gorgeous. We sat outside overlooking expansive lawns and gardens. The service was very professional and formal as one would expect in a good French restaurant. Nevertheless, the servers were pleasant, efficient and helpful.... More

We couldn't have asked for a better afternoon, sitting on the terrace of Etoile at Chandon in Yountville. We thoroughly enjoyed the six part tasting menu with the paired wines, the unmatched service was superb, and the waiters knowledge of food and wine made this a most memorable day. By far the best meal and experience ten days into our... More

This was absolutely one of our best dinners in Napa. We did the six couse prix fixed menu and the wine pairing and it lived up to all the expectations. We had fabulous canapes, delicious sparkling wine, savory pate's.... you name it. I would consider this a great restaurant and fancy but they weren't at all pretentious. There were a... More
