We attended a large group dinner and it was very nice. My wife and I had Salmon that was fresh and delisious and also had the lobster mac-n-cheese... Oh Yeah... I had the filet mignon.... very tasty. We were introduced to Clouds Nest Pinot Noir, the holy grail of Pinot Noir. Deliscious.....

Touring the Wine Country we tend to want to wow ourselves during the trip. Therefore accommodations, wineries as well as eating establishments are all subject to strong scrutiny.

Asante was not our first choice but it was most definitely our best. The Chef made a Lobster poached. The presentation was great and the flavors to die for. Service was quite attentive. Additionally their Som was quite helpful selecting a wine.

What a surprise! Don't confuse the Big 3 breakfast lunch place, and its reviews, with the Sante, which is truly a fine dining restaurant of the hoghest caliber. Yes, we knew it had a Michelin Star, but it still exceeded expectations. Gentile serene decor. Simplified high end California cuisine. Yes, some foam, but only where it was a nice touch. Spectacular wines by the glass - such a rare experience. Guided by the most patient and helpful sommelier ever - a young lady who really knew her stuff, right in the middle of wine country. And less money for our dinner than the highly over-rated Bouchon Bistro.

My husband and I dined at Sante for Thanksgiving. Being away from home, we still wanted to enjoy turkey, cranberry, stuffing, and all the usuals. Sante delivered this and more. Their selection of cheeses and cured meats was excellent. Also enjoyed pumpkin bisque and and seafood ravioli. Of course, their wine list did not disappoint. I would recommend for a Thanksgiving away from home.
