“Excellent food.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

A definite food and wine experience to remember. The works, lots of attention to our group of 8. Confusing menu. Needed explanation by server several times. You can only order part of the menu if it's a unanimous decision by everyone at table (??) it just seemed awkward to not be free to order what you wanted. That being said, the food was excellent. The service was excellent as well. Very attentive to when to break into our conversations and when to let us enjoy our friends company. Perfectly attentive yet not annoying either. Enjoyable experience.

“Memorable Dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2013

A friend of mine who lives in Napa said "go to La Toque" when I asked him some suggestions for restaurants during my recent trip. I had not expectations except to enjoy a meal. The menu was fun with so many things to choose from. The wine pairings were spot on. The food was delicious and the service was great. I do agree, however, with another reviewer who did not like the ambiance because it feels like the restaurant is in a hotel lobby -- it is and the ambiance could have been improved considering the nature of the food, service and wine.

“Great Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

We had an excellent dinner at La Toque during our recent visit to Napa and would say that it was one of our favorite meals of our trip. I had the vegetable tasting menu and was very pleased with my choice. Each course was very good, with the highlights being the beet risotto, wild mushroom tart, and the cannoli with blood oranges dessert. The wine pairings were all enjoyable. The restaurant was somewhat empty due to it being mid-week and there being a conference at the hotel. However, that meant we received very attentive service, by both our server and sommelier. It ended up being one of the most expensive meals of our trip, but we would definitely return!

“Good Meal”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013

My husband and I ate at La Toque last week during our trip to Napa. This restaurant came highly recommended so we were very excited. From the moment we walked in, my husband didn't like the feel of it because he felt like we were just eating in a hotel lobby. The food was delicious and the service was excellent. Unfortunately, we just didn't feel the meal was worth the money spent. For almost the same price, we ate at another restaurant in the area that blew La Toque out of the water.
