A word from Domaine Chandon - Etoile Restaurant
étoile is one of Napa Valley’s most celebrated destinations and the only fine dining restaurant in Napa Valley located in a winery. An extraordinary setting, innovative regional California cuisine with a French influence, and seamless service combine to create the ultimate food and wine experience.

At étoile, Chef Perry Hoffman marries classic, French-influenced technique with contemporary culinary innovation and fresh, seasonal ingredients. Hoffman works closely with Chandon winemakers to explore the interplay between wine and food, enhancing the experience of both.

Guests may dine a la carte, or explore the ultimate food and wine pairing experience through Chef Hoffman's tasting menus at lunch and dinner.

The restaurant features a Wine Spectator "Best of" Award Wine list and received a Michelin star in the 2010, 2011 and 2012 Michelin Guide after being recommended in 2007, 2008, and 2009.

Diner Reviews
  • "The experience begins when you enter the Domaine Chandon property and ends when you leave the property. The setting is fabulous. Staff is energetic, classy, and efficient. Our table for four had an excellent experience. The food is as beautiful to look at as it is to eat. Duck Pate Salad is amazing. The entree of Kurobuta Pork loin was the best I have ever had. The Duck, the Lamb, and the Scallops were also excellent. We had the Four Course Chef's Sampler. Next time we will add the wine sampler with the meal."

  • "From start to finish this was an exceptional meal. I m not a huge fan of fussy presentations but this was right on the mark. Besides being visually stunning, the actual essence of the food was front and center. The service was impeccable. Our server, Josh, was perfect. The choreography was not overly obtrusive."

  • "I would rate a million stars if i could. The food was amazing, every course was spectacular from beginning to end. Presentation was lovely and the service was incredible. I would like to thank Suzanne who looked after each and every detail of our meal. The wine list is interactive, i enjoyed reading about the wines via iPad. Consider seating outdoors if you visit in the summer, gorgeous grounds and so serene. My favorite course was the scallop, beautifully presented and so delicious. Dessert did not disappoint, i had the lava cake and enjoyed every bite."

  • "The chef has been outstanding, and the overall experience a highlight of a trip to wine country. The appetizers are all amazing. The lamb dish was to die for. The presentation and unique blend of flavors is amazing. Our group had 6 of the main courses. Nearly all were fantastic. An exquisite dining experience with wonderful wine pairings in a beautiful setting with phenomenal service. We have been coming here every year for over 20 years. The current chef is creative, uses fresh ingredients, and provides appropriate portion sizes."

  • "In a word this meal was incredible. The service was impeccable--each and every server we encountered was friendly, knowledgeable and entertaining. The atmosphere was lovely and of course the scenery can't be beat. The food was out of this world (are there anymore hyperbolic cliches I could possibly use?!) and I am dying to eat there again. I must try the dinner, although I'm not sure how they could improve upon their amazing lunch offering!!"

  • "Absolutely and with out any reservation I would call this the best lunch I've ever had. From the beautiful views, to the Champagne, to the appetizers and then the main courses no doubt a magnificent eating experience. The staff was friendly, attentive, knowledgable and extremely helpful. Again, a remarkable overall dining experience."

  • "I've never had such a wonderful meal, with such exquisite service, ever. It is definitely pricey, but we felt it was well worth the price. We had the 8-course tasting menu and asked them to pair all the courses with the appropriate Chandon vintage (original pairings included wines from other wineries). Pours were generous, food was delicious, and service outstanding. We'll be back next year!"

  • "We had not been here for several years, and found it to be as beautiful as ever. The menu had changed to a fixed price meal which was a little disappointing. Although we selected the four item selection, with a few glasses of wine and tip it was about $350 for two people. The food was beautiful, and service very attentive. They had an excellent wine list."

  • "Having done the Reserve tasting, we headed to Etoile for lunch & were seated on the patio on a perfect sunny but breezy Sunday. We chose to have the lunch tasting menu which I paired with the wine tasting (my husband went for a glass as he was driving). The whole meal was amazing. Every dish was beautiful in its presentation, & a taste sensation. Lobster, scallops, pork, beef and an apricot dessert, with three amuse bouche, everything in perfect harmony. We were so impressed we considered booking again for dinner but sadly they were closed Tuesday night which was the only night we still had open during our trip. I would certainly dine here again, & would recommend it to anyone, whether for a special occasion or just to spoil yourself!"

  • "I took my wife to Chandon for lunch on Fathers Day. If you eat at the Etoile Restaurant and the weather is nice I would highly recommend sitting outside. The food is excellent and the service impeccable. We started with the Charcuterie platter which has prosciutto di parma · beef tartare · soppressata · picante · coppa · farmer's cheese. It was enough to split between 4 people. We each had a different entree and each one was delicious. I would highly recommend."

  • "The food was excellent and the service was seamless. The décor is contemporary and artistic. We had a beautiful view of the lush grounds where a large private party was being hosted. This was an excellent way to end the evening following our tour of the winery earlier in the afternoon. The prices were commensurate with the quality of the food and service."

  • "The Chef's 6-course tasting menu with wine pairings is excellent. It is expensive, as chef's tasting menus generally are, but worth it for a special occasion or vacation. Our meal lasted about 3 hours, and we were full and satisfied when we left. The food was creative, diverse, well presented and seasonal, and 5 of our 6 courses were outstanding. Our server dropped the ball a couple of times. We were not greeted until about 10 minutes after we were seated, and we were not served our wine pairing with one of our dishes until 5 minutes after the dish arrived. He did apologize, and said he would not "fail us" again. Overall, we did feel well taken care of by our hostess, expeditors and other service staff. A lovely fine dining experience."

  • "Food was fabulous. Service was a bit uneven. Lead waiter was mediocre but secondary waiters who delivered the food were exceptional and knew their plates. Although reservation was made and confirmed for 1:30 there was some software difficulties and it posted at 2:00. I had called Etoile directly to change our reservation to 1pm and to request outdoor seating. Their phone response was very accommodating but when I arrived it was not reflected. We waited until about 1:40 to be seated. A host gave us a glass of champagne while we waited outside. Overall it was a lovely experience. For my husband and I, the food is outstanding. Our last visit 9/2/13 was terrific as well. I recommend this restaurant. "

The service was impeccable, the waiter and servers spoke very well and answered all of the questions throughout the lunch. The lunch was a most fitting climax to two days of experiencing the best Napa has to offer. The food and the wine were unbeatable, anywhere in the world."
