“Brunch (almost) as good as dinner!”
Reviewed March 1, 2014 via mobile

You can see my dinner review from last year here on TripAdvisor. I raised a few very minor points and management responded honestly and impressively. (If you don't want to go back and find it - here's the bottom line: dinner here is a great experience with great food and excellent service.)

I returned to Napa this year, this time with family, and we came to the Sunday brunch. If you are a brunch person, don't miss this. (I really think the only better brunch is at Farmstead).

The food selection is really nice and I had the Migas - spicy and flavorful. Several had juices that were definitely fresh squeezed and delicious. My favorite thing was the home made "jam", which was basically crushed fresh raspberries. We made short work of it on our toast :)

The coffee was served in a French press and was very good.

Service was fast and friendly, as usual. Even the valet guys are great. I continue to be impressed with this little gem.

“Fantastic food and service”
Reviewed February 24, 2014 via mobile

Unbelievable! My wife had warm crab with spinach that was the best she has had anywhere in the world (which includes many crab places). My beef was perfect. Topping it all off was dog friendliness on the patio like you have never seen. Two course dog meal for $5. We have been coming to Yountville for a few years and only discovered this restaurant from a referral by the people at Hope and Grace wine tasting on the main Yountville street (another place that is off the charts). We will be returning to Lucy on our next trip

Dear Jackrcpa,
Thank you very much for your kind words on the food in our very own Lucy Restaurant!. We love to hear the positive. We are most definitely Dog friendly (I myself have three Goldens that visit quite often). I will take the time as well to thank Hope and Grace for their referral to us. We hope to see you soon and often.

“What an Enjoyable Dinner!”
Reviewed February 17, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I have vacationed in the Napa Valley several times generally dining at the "usual suspects." On this trip we agreed to try new places, which led us to Lucy at the Bardesonno Hotel.
It was terrific!! A rare treat is that the restaurant offers almost all of its entrees as half orders which allowed us to experiment with several offerings without "breaking the proverbial bank."
The salads were as fresh as can be with many ingredients cultivated on property. The half order of Maine Lobster Risotto was divine, as were the half orders of sea bass and sole ( also surprisingly ample for half orders).
We will definitely return on our next trip to"Napa"
Bon Apetit!

Dear MarcRFortLauder,

First and foremost thank you, your recent review was a joy to read and we all here at Lucy wanted to take a moment to say thank you.

It was most enjoyable to hear you found the food, service and ambiance to your liking. The small plate format has been a huge success since we implemented last summer and its great to hear you were able to sample a lot of the dishes and that it was approachable also.

A great deal of our produce is indeed sourced direct from the gardens here on property and we aim to provide our guests with filling portions.

Thank you again for your feedback and we look forward to seeing you back at Lucy again soon

Regards,

Ross Wheatley

We went in last minute (off season) and had a wonderful dinner. My husband and I shared gnocchi and antelope - they were both wonderful!
