“Spectacular food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2014

Ambience is is sleek "ultra minimal" modernism. The menu is terrific and the food is spectacular.
Perfectly cooked to perfection. Easily one of the best restaurants anywhere.

“Nice farm-to-table concept meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

Probably our favorite dining experience in Yountville. If you like clean, organic food, this is the place for you. No heavy buttery sauces. We asked for gluten-free, dairy-free and sugar-free food, and they created a delightful meal (plus a bowl of fresh berries for dessert). It's a quieter dining experience - not as buzzing and lively as Bistro Jeanty or Redd, but we were on an anniversary trip and enjoyed the serene atmosphere.

Dear Cowgirl359,

Thank you first and foremost for your kind words regarding your recent dinner experience here at Lucy. Very high praise indeed to hear that we were your favorite dining location in Yountville; competition is very intense here in town so it was wonderful to hear we made such a positive impression on you.
We pride ourselves on our farm to table concept and our ability to accommodate all manner of dietary requests, its pleasing to know we were able to do that successfully.
Thank you again for celebrating your anniversary here at the hotel also and we look forward to seeing you return in the near future.

Regards,

Ross Wheatley

“Always Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2014

We love coming to Lucy because we always know the service is going to be excellent and the food fantastic. We are big fans of Chef Victor Scargle. He has put together a great menu that is so fresh and tasty. We had a nice variety of salads and appetizers - the baby beet salad was really good, the Maine lobster risotto terrific (and I'm not a lobster guy) and the big eye tuna cheviche was really unique. Tuna and popcorn - loved the mix in that dish. Main courses were the Mary's chicken (incredible), the crispy sea bass (really nice), halibut (big thumbs up) and prime beef striploin (excellent) - we went 4-for-4. The staff helped us select a nice French wine and we finished with some carrot cake. It was a terrific evening, as usual, and we look forward to our next visit.

“Just as good second time around!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2014

We ate for the second time in three years during a recent ski trip to California (albeit that we weren't staying in the hotel this time).

Although it was January, the weather was great and we had a lovely table to ourself in the sun on the patio. Wine (several bottles!) and food were great to make a great start to a holiday.

Service was also impeccable (as ever), with everyone at pains to be helpful without being intrusive!

Would definitely return (again).

“Guy, Greg and Anthony were awesome”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2014

This food was so delicate and fresh that it rivaled our two other favorite meals (Meadowood and Redd) at a fraction of the price.
This is such a hidden Gem. Skip the big name restaurants and come here for a delicious, comfortable, innovative meal.
