Best train dining experience ever
Jul 2021
What a great experience!! The food here served was great. I had the tenderloin while my wife had the chicken. The service was first rate. Our server, Marnie, did a great job of presenting our meals and was fun to talk to.
The view of the valley from the dome car was better than expected. The three hours passed by so quickly.

A must if you come to Napa Valley!
Jul 2021 • Couples
My husband and I were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary and we did the lunch wine train tour. I can’t say enough good things about the whole experience. It’s a must if you come to Napa Valley! The scenery is amazing, the food is mouthwatering, and the drinks are divine. Tasha our host on the train and she is funny, fun, and knows so much😊

Worth going once with people you love
Dec 2019
The trip itself was pretty exciting for the first half and then it got boring. The scenery isn't really great either if you're on the side viewing over the highway. The dinner option might have been better with the night view and the evening atmosphere and all that. My folks liked it anyway. I'd give it a better score when it comes to the memories one is able to retain from the trip.

If you want to get discounts (seniors, military, etc.) you must book over the phone. I got screwed over on this because the reservationist failed to mention that fact and I booked online where discounts apparently don't apply. Credit card transactions can't be refunded after the fact so check up on the payment before proceeding.

Good food, but less than average service
Dec 2019
I took my wife on the Vista Dome Lunch Car wine train tour for her birthday on 18 December 2019 and sat at table DC3. There were less than 30 other customers and it was deemed a pretty “quiet day” by the staff

We were having a good time until the soups were delivered which is when a pattern started to become apparent. Our table was towards the middle of the dining cart, yet we were getting our food delivered last and getting the least amount of attention from the server. This pattern was confirmed during the main course when every other table received their food while we waited for a painfully awkward amount of time before getting our food. Dessert was the only exception.

This trend of being singled out continued when the table next to ours received a complimentary dessert with a birthday candle. We thought that we’d receive the same given that I inputted my wife’s birthday into the notes during the booking process which was confirmed by the lobby host when she, without any prompts, congratulated my wife for her birthday during the check-in process. However, our table didn’t receive anything. When I asked our waitress if my wife could get a birthday candle too, she seemed more concerned with proving to me that they didn’t have any notes indicating any special occasions for our table, than making the experience special for my wife.

Overall, it’s tough trying to make sense as to why our table received significantly different service quality. If the server would have explained why our food kept getting delayed, then that would have really helped us not feel different. Furthermore, I don’t care who’s fault it is for overlooking my wife’s birthday notes; instead of trying to tell me why it’s not her fault the server could have done better at not making my wife feel like an afterthought. It really sucked sitting next to another table who got taken care of correctly while we just felt like a burden on a train tour costing $500.

Finally, the only demographic that set our table apart from the others was the color of my wife’s skin, so looking back at everything that happened I don’t see any other characteristics that set our table apart from the others. So why was our table the only one that seemingly received sub-par service?

Napa Train Ride and Lunch
Sep 2019 • Couples
Me, my wife, her sister, and her sister’s husband took the Napa Wine Train for a great ride and a great lunch. Our server was extremely nice and helpful. The scenery was spectacular from our vista dome rail car and the ride is slow enough to see and enjoy it. I would definitely recommend the Napa Valley Wine Train.

Thoroughly Enjoyed this Experience !
We very much enjoyed our time on the Wine Train. We booked the Vista Dome Lunch. This gave us a private table which was elegant and romantic. We had a wonderfully attentive waiter who explained about the region and history of some of the wineries. The vista dome is a private car, so other guests can not wander through. We however, could get up and explore other cars as desired. The train ride is a leisurely out and back journey from Napa to St Helena. A few brief stops occur to allow those in other cars to load and unload for winery tours ( if that is what they booked). It is a very relaxing way to see the towns. This is not a high speed train.

Since we have been to Napa previously and have had plenty of time taste at wineries, this was just the experience we wanted. It is truly about the dining. The food is amazing!! The complementary sparkling wine from Chandon was lovely. Yes, you would have to purchase additional wine for your meals, however I think the price of the fine dining experience is well worth it given the complexities of operating a train and the level of service and quality of food.

We are so glad we decided to do this. I would specifically recommend the Vista Dome for the most intimate and personal experience.

Food amazingly good..
Only a short journey so it is worth including a vineyard tour. The meal was fantastic, one glass of wine was included, and any others were charged as extra. Our waitress recommended a wine but I did not like it so did exchange it for another. Took a ferry to Vallejo, then a bus to and from the station, which keeps the price down but takes more effort.

Fairytale trip
Oct 2018
This was the highlight of our 40th Anniversary trip. Unexpectedly delightful, the food was delicious and the tour of Castel de Amorosa was great. Being from the east coast we had no idea about the vastness of California wine country.

Food is excellent.
Aug 2019
Best part is tge culinary experience. The waiter was excellent, friendly yet professional. The food was served as a 4 course meal. Each course was first class, truly enjoyable. The view was hit and miss, at times, we saw the vineyards, other tomes, auto repair shops. We were unhappy to receive a bill for the water we were served, no mention was made at time of service. Also, the price of this experience is high, the cost of the waiter should be included.
