A word from FARM at The Carneros Inn
FARM, at The Carneros Inn is a restaurant dedicated to food that accompanies wine. We believe in well-balanced, comforting, full-flavored dishes that are simple in concept but complex in taste, emphasizing the natural flavors of the ingredients. We craft our own breads, pastries and Artisan Charcuterie products using our passion for experimentation, and respect of tradition. Our inspiration comes from access to the finest organic and sustainably raised ingredients that we source primarily within a 150 mile radius of Carneros, to harvest food that is at the peak of its season and flavor. The food we prepare supports and nurtures ourselves, our guests, and our land.

Our dress code is business casual. For men, please adhere to no hats, shorts, or sandals in the dining room. Jackets are not required.

Diner Reviews
  • "Went to the FARM on July 9th and really enjoyed ourselves. The service was as to be expected at a fine dining restaurant. The menu is solid. To start the Wife ordered the BEET Salad and LOVED it! I ordered the garden salad and it was good but not great. Drinks- The wife had the Blueberry Mojito and it was awesome! I have a wonderful Pinot. Main Course- Wife had the fillet and it was one of the better prepared filets we have had in a long while. The Reduction sauce was perfect! I had the Ahi and it was a bit salty but I enjoyed it. For desert we had the banana and that was the only thing Id say I would not order again. Dry and a little bland. We both wished there had been more ice cream and banana. Over all a very good dinner!"

  • "The food was prepared well--lamb for one of us, duck for the other, following starters of beet salad. Duck was excellent; tender, perfectly rare, flavorful. I hate to be one of those gauche reviewers who complain about portion size, but I do think that only two slices of the duck breast was rather too precious; I appreciate not including end pieces but for the price charged they should have provided a minimum of three slices, it's just not enough protein to constitute a meal. The lamb prepared three ways also was a bit precious, for $42 there should have been more than two slices of the loin. We've had duck and lamb at many restaurants, and providing larger portion of meat does not have to compromise quality."

  • "I've had the Chef's 7 course tasting menu twice so far. Once was on Valentine's Day and the other for a recent birthday. Both were paired with recommended wines. The Chef's choices are incredible and both times have felt like truly memorable experiences. This is definitely a destination for special events."

  • "great great dinner. we came early and sat on the fabulous patio and had a delicious cheese and mushroom flatbread and drinks. dinner was great as well. beet salad very festive and pretty and tasty!! carrot salad was very different and good flavor as well. Their risotto is absolutely out of this world. no other place has ever come close to how they make it here. the duck was cooked to perfection and nice sized portion as well. the 'strawberry' dessert was lovely and flavorful. the 'mint' was ok. the service was very nice and our waiter was very funny and engaging but non intrusive."

  • "Delicious! Everything was perfect. Usually, something stands out, the server or a specific entree, dessert etc. At the Farm all was equally exceptional. I am looking forward to returning."

  • "There is nothing but rave reviews. Ricardo sat us in a wonderful private booth towards the back of the restaurant, so we were away from the door and bar area, Matt our waiter was absolutely wonderful - he knew the menu well and had a great sense of humor. When he was unsure about a wine he had Ricardo come over and Ricardo explained the background of Mi Sueno Chardonnay - what a gem of a glass of wine. We will definitely be back. Wonderful special occasion restaurant. Thank you to all the staff."

  • "My wife took me to this restaurant for my 55th birthday. The whole experience was a very pleasant surprise. The ambiance was driven a bit by the architecture which I would call "Modern Farm". I don't know how else to describe it and I grew up in Iowa. The menu was definitely gourmet and fabulous. I went for the entire 7 course meal-- but each course was an intriguing experience. Our waiter, James, was outstanding and he had several other attentive staff assisting. In all we spent 3 hours at the meal...and the price though not inexpensive, was well worth it. I would recommend The Farm for a special occasion with that special person."

  • "Since moving to the Napa Valley 2.5 years ago I have been able to dine at Farm three times. I have been blown away each time as far as service levels, the quality of the cuisine, and the overall experience. Farm is an absolute gem in an area that is already known for top restaurants."

  • "If you love good food, and don't mind paying a little more for it, then this place is a must. The chef knows flavor and understands how each element works with the other. True culinary artistry. The wine list is very extensive - and oh so good. Recommend asking your waiter/bartender for their suggestion - they know what would pair well with your meal and/or what is popular. The scene has a cool vibe. I came on a Wednesday night which apparently has live music outside in the patio lounge area. To the side there are also a few seats for outside dining. There is one table right next to the outdoor fireplace. I think I'll request that spot next time. Although, the inside has its charms as well - blending rustic design with modern elements."

  • "For a celebration weekend for my college graduate son, we reserved a special table at Farm with all the courses from salads, soups and entrees all around exceeding our expectations. With each guest choosing a different "animal" from the menu, we each sampled the others fish, lamb, filet and veggies. Delicious savory dishes presented with simple elegance and exceptional service. I can't wait to return my next trip to the Wine Country."

  • "Went here for dinner on the Saturday night of a weekend in wine country. Fantastic experience! We decided to order a la carte, though the tasting menu did look amazing. Everything we got was great, though the risotto was really spectacular (get the shaved truffles on top if they have them!). The young garlic soup was absolutely delicious and the fish was cooked perfectly. Highly recommend the desserts as well!"

  • "From the minute we drove up--spectacular. It was a birthday and they gave us free sparkling cider as my daughter is 12. Service, presentation, taste, portions, top notch and completely unpretentious, downright friendly. No time for $125 pp tasting menu but anxious to try. Dinner for 5 with apps bottle wine cocktails and dessert came to about $100 pp. "

  • "Pros: Halibut was amazing Cashew Dessert Freebie Anniversary Cookies and Amuse Cons: Chilled Garlic Soup- super light in flavor, almost "watery" with no depth. Had only a couple bites, expressed we did not like it, surprised waitress kept it on the bill. Service: was not very engaging, for a 4 star restaurant expected more. "
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "We looked at the tasting menu and decided that we would next time. After it was all said and done we would have chosen that option. On to the food. Outstanding. We had the beet salad, Duck breast, Halibut, and Banana dessert. Our drinks were always refilled. the service was great by all staff not just our waitress. Even though we were one of the only couples in the resturant, we has an early dinner, 5:30, they did not hover but understood when to approach and assist. "

  • "Outstanding meal, delightful service, overall fabulous experience! Lobster risotto was bliss and the lamb "trilogy" exceptional! Superb guidance on the wine pairings made for plu-perfect dining. And the bonus..they welcomed our small dog. Thank you!!"

  • "The Farm in NAPA is a wonderful dining experience. The food couldn't be better and they have a great menu. Everything on the menu is a little unique in the preparation, but really a wonderful delight. You have to mention the outdoor lounge which looks delightful as a hangout. The indoor bar is great, too. And the dining area is beautiful and very romantic. The chicken dish was really the best chicken I've tasted in a long time. And the halibut was some of the best I've had. Oysters were of the typical high quality you would get at a fine dining restaurant. They had two varieties. The beet salad was uniquely prepared and super good. It was a meal of the finest quality."

  • "Spent $400 this weekend at Farm. I was terribly disappointed and would not recommend this place to anyone. The food was just plain mediocre. We did the 7 course tasting menu, unfortunately nothing stood out and nothing was oustanding. "

  • "You probably cannot find bad food in Napa. We ate at Mustards, Girl and Fig, Farm and Carpe Diem. All of them were very, very good but Farm was clearly the best. Perhaps my only across the board 5 star in an Open Table review in a few years, not that I am Zagat, but we like good food. We did not do the 2 hour tasting menu but it is available there for those who want that without getting their wallet washed in the Laundry (though still pricey). Enjoy!"

  • "The Farm offers a great dinning experience. Great bar and gorgeous outdoor area with a beautiful fire pit for those cool evenings. Nice open atmosphere with sharp aesthetics yet romantic. The food presentation was suburb and perfectly prepared. The staff was joyful and energetic. My guests and I really enjoyed our experience and highly recommend the Farm. "

  • "Everything about this restaurant has almost an ethereal quality to it, including flowing curtains, expansive space, quiet, serene, etc. We had the 7 course tasting menu and we thought we'd died and gone to heaven it was so delish. I was touched by the fact that since it was my birthday, I come to the table with a personal b'day wish card on it. Wow, now that's personal service! Highly recommend it. No hoity toityness either!"

  • "We had the tasting menu with wine pairings. There was a slight mixup in our first flight so we missed the sparkling wine. Other than that it was worth every penny. Remarkable food with perfect pairing. We will go back and recommend the Farm to friends."

  • "We went to Farm because of the excellent reviews online. I cannot offer anything different. From start to finish, our dinner was fun, memorable and delicious! Our server was so friendly, always attentive, but never hovering. The supporting servers always kept the warm bread available and the water glasses full. I particularly enjoyed the different oysters to taste side-by-side, which gave me a good overview of their differences. And the food was so fresh! We enjoyed each course in the open, airy environment where we had privacy but it wasn't too quiet. Next time we'll go early so we can enjoy a cocktail at the outdoor lounge area. Or maybe just have a cup of their excellent coffee outside after dinner. This is a must-return venue."

  • "The food was delicious! Its hard to find a way to make brunch surprisingly refreshing, but they did just that at our Easter meal. A wonderful variation of flavors, each dish was just the right amount, and presented in its own time, no rushing or delays. The service was excellent. This was not our first time at The Farm, and will not be our last!"

  • "The Farm has an excellent ambience with a feeling of romance, tranquility, and vibrance. We had the tasting menu and we found it to be a tasty delight. I recommend the Farm, especially after a tasting in Napa to complete the evening."

  • "Food was impeccable as was the service and the ambiance. The entree of lamb was well put together with three different styles of cooking it. The duck was also very tasty. I do feel that while the wine list was long, it was difficult to decide how to choose the wine as it all seemed same same. A suggestion of wine pairings with each a la carte option would have been perfect to hone in on the style and flavors presented."
    Dined on 4/12/2014
  • "This restaurant is very romantic. The ambiance is great and they have booths made for two people. They are very good at making special events extra special. We had the tasting menu which was amazing. It was almost too much good food. It was a 7 course menu and you could opt for the wine pairing. The one wine pairing we tried was awesome. I would totally recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a fun and/or romantic spot."

  • "This is a great alternative, as it's located between Napa & Sonoma. The decor is understated elegance. The waitstaff is focused and know their product. Some stand out dishes for us are the Roasted Baby Beets with Bosc Pear, Pecans, Bermuda Triangle Cheese, Young Greens with a Sherry Vinaigrette ($15) The Liberty Farms Duck Breast with Garden Brassica, Cashew Pudding, Sweet & Sour Mandarin and Black Garlic ($34) The Superior Farm Lamb with Green Garlic, Toasted Farro, Carrot Condimento, Kumquats & Natural Jus ($42) The Carnaroli Risotto with Maine Lobster, Preserved Meyer Lemon, Parmigiano-Reggiano ($17 or $34) - or experience The Tasting Menu ($95). Corkage Fee is $25 - NOTE: Sit outside and have a cocktail next to the fire prior to dining"

  • "There is a long walk way that is lit with candles on a huge open water area with long white lounge chairs. Very Miami and very sexy. Then you walk into the restaurant and see a warm fireplace and open kitchen. There is also a private dining area for private events. Chef and waitress very accommodating. Great food. Good wine list. Very romantic and just gotta go if you are in the area. Food is delish. The beef entree on the tasting menu is a must."

  • "I surprised my husband with a birthday dinner at the Farm. We both thoroughly enjoyed our Dinner Tasting Menu. This is the menu where you are served seven "meals" that are paired with champagne or wine. Our server, Rebecca, was very socialable, knowledgeable and friendly. We will definitely return to this restaurant!"

  • "Needed a spot to dine with business associate/friends in Napa. This off the beaten path find was a gem! The food was outstanding (Duck Breast and Lamb), even the Garden Salad was superb (total farm to table freshness). The tasting menu sounded intriguing but we were not hungry enough to indulge. We will definitely add The Farm at Carneros Inn to our dining repertoire when in Wine Country. Well done to the friendly folks at Farm, they definitely have the hospitality and culinary expertise down to an art form."

  • "Food was nice. The value wasn't as good as the good quality. Some servings were disproportionate. Don't make up for an anorexic stringy 1/4 quail serving by placing it on top of stuffing that is the size of a regular entre size. Cheese and red pepper serving looked and felt like an amateurish cost saving serving. Soup was out of this world good. Our waitress was a very sweet and considerate person. Overall service staff was a little slow and, in some case, sloppy. Two other tables sent back their dessert wine as did we. Someone is asleep at the pairing wheel. Outdoor patio with fireplace is a dream. Pulling up to the restaurant looks nice. The place looks impressive and comfortable. Just slightly overpriced."
