Our meal here was the best experience we had the whole trip. We ate outside on their patio and the grounds and atmosphere is exceptional! Out waitress was Susanne and if you can request her- get her! She was SO nice and incredibly knowledgeable about every food and wines and champagne. Loved EVERY moment there!

From the beginning to the end one of the best meals. Service, quality of food and wine pairing was exceptional. We experienced the wine selections, the caviar and desserts all of which were extraordinary. Our table of four was catered to by fantastic staff at every course. I can't say enough about this experience. Highly recommended.

Everything perfect except our waiter smelled of cigarettes. But a small distraction only. This restaurant, Etoile, is beautiful inside or outdoors. The caviar app worth it, also the oysters done both mignonette and brûléed with bernaise. Entrees were unbelievably good, eps for lunch. Everyone loved my tuna plate and also the salmon. Scallops also cooked perfectly. This was a beautiful meal in an unforgettable setting.

We really liked all dishes here. All dishes not just looked beautiful but also tasted perfect (even the cheese plate was still impressive . When paying $$$, we expected a little bit more sophistication in the taste and decoration and this place met our expectation. Service was very attentive and not pretentious. Wine recommendation was very good. If we have more days in NAPA we would definitely going back.
