We enjoyed our four course dinner. The beet starter was very good, with the hazelnut offsetting the blue cheese, all of which complemented the beets. My black cod was the only disappointing dish as it just didn't have much flavour (the vegetables were wonderfully flavorful however). My wife's scallop was very good. Duck and lamb for mains were also very... More

My husband and I dined here for our 20th anniversary 3 days ago. The menu can be a little intimidating but the staff is so friendly and helpful. I loved my veal sweetbread appetizer and sole for the next course. My only complaint is that the background music was Muzak. I would think that all that attention to detail would... More

Six of us had dinner here after a long day of tastings. The reservations had been made by friends and the restaurant was a refreshing change of pace to a lot of the frenetic activities along Route 29. We were looking for a somewhat lighter meal than their four or six course options and the personnel were happy to oblige.... More

Had a great dinner! Tastefull. Nice people. Great wines. They could't find our reservation for 8, but while we waited with a glass of Prosecco, they had a table ready in no time.

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

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 celebrated my daughters Birthday July 3. Evening was spectacular, starting with beautiful grounds and ponds, moon lighting and exceptional service. 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
