A word from Domaine Chandon - Etoile Restaurant

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.

Diner Reviews
  • "This was a great find for a special occasion in Napa! The food was exceptional, the service Devine. The server took her time to explain the wines, and to discuss each dish and pairing in the four course meal. Lovely experience!"

  • "We were looking for a great restaurant in Yountville (other than The French Laundry) and decided to try Etoile. It was an excellent meal and well worth the money. In fact, because we are members of Domaine Chandon's wine club, it was a bit of a bargain. We got 20% off the meal, a free glass of sparkling wine, and a discount on their wines. Although they are a winery, their wine list is extensive and includes some fantastic wines. I had a glass of Grgich Hills Zinfandel that was superb, as was the Chandon Cabernet Sauvignon. The service was exceptional. Our server struck a great balance between being attentive and not hovering. Overall, I thought it was a great meal, great service, and a beautiful restaurant. Hard to complain about that."

  • "We were running late and the staff and kitchen were very acommodating! Food and service was outstanding."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Food was good but overdone with the chichi. Too contrived for my taste. But fundamentally well prepared and the ingredients were fresh and first rate. Just way too much going on on the plate. Service not up to standard for a Michelin Star restaurant. Not particularly polished. No supervision or visible managemeent. Hostess doubled as seater. Had to wait at the desk for a while before she appeared from the terrace. Over priced. We are locals and visit Bouchon, Don Giovanni's and others frequently and pay almost half. Not a great value."

  • "This is a repeat visit for my daughter's 21th birthday lunch. Beautiful setting with delicious innovative menu. Excellent staff and presentation. Will definitely repeat for future napa trips."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "OMG!! Great on so many levels. Let's just start with desert which was a watermelon sorbet. Oh, this is not what you expect--the presentation, texture and sorbet flavor was delicious, and it came with a foam of Thailand Curry. The appetizer was a melon soup with scallops and tiny melons among other unknown ingredients . The presentation and the taste transported you to another world. I had the halibut entree which was outstanding in taste and presentation. My dining partner had the duck-confit entre which was a little salty but still delicious. On another visit, he would chose differently. Still this did not detract from the fact that this chef knows exactly what he is doing. Dining here is experiencing great art."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "I ordered the tasting menu and the accompanying wine pairing. While the food was top- notch, the chef was limited to Chandon offerings, which included two great sparklers, and some mediocre still wine, with the exception of the Sauvignon Blanc . For $250, we felt we were getting an overpriced Chandon wine tasting. The overall wine list contained over 500 wines, so why the limitation on the pairings? The food in the 6 course tasting was amazing and represented an excellent variety of the chef's talent. So I highly recommend the restaurant, just order wine off the list and forego the pairings."

  • "Food outstanding! Expect looooong wait between courses."

  • "We had yet another amazing late afternoon lunch at Domaine Chandon. The octopus appetizer was extraordinary, as was the poached egg with caviar. The service, view and noise level made for a perfect afternoon."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "This is rated as one of the top restaurants in Napa and the food is good but everything else is lacking - we were seating a strange hall like room with no other diners, the receptionist was snooty and off-putting, and the facility itself is feels cold, dated, and sterile."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "If you want a splurge, this is a wonderful place! The ambience is lovely and tables are spaced to keep noise at a minimum. Impeccable service. Outstanding food! We did the four course meal and each plate was gorgeous and perfectly prepared. A bottle of Etoile sparkling rose complemented everything quite well. Complimentary dessert bites were fabulous also! A great dining experience!"
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "Great food, great service, a little pricy. Great for special occassions/celebrations. Went on a Thursday in middle of July, and surprisingly, only a few diners for lunch, which made it very quiet and even more enjoyable. Last dined here about 23 years ago, but this experience was more memorable."

  • "Beautiful gardens, delicious food and dessert, excellent food presentation, romantic and they remembered my husband's Birthday. We will be back."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!!"
    Dined on 6/29/2014
  • "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."

  • "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!"

    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "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!"

  • "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."
