    From the moment we entered La Toque until we strolled out 2 hours later, we were in dining heaven! The Vegetable Tasting menu was exquisite as one course followed the other each paired with the perfect glass of wine. Each was better than the previous. The service was impeccable. Every question we asked was answered and there was always someone there to fulfill our need whether voiced or foreseen. All of this, despite the fact that the Westin in which La Toque's is located is still under repair from the recent earthquake. We will return!

    Exceptional food and service. While they have an immense wine cellar, I feel the best way to really experience this restaurant is to take advantage of the offered wine pairings with with your meal. There are many exceptional restaurants in Napa, but La Toque is among the best of the best.

    My wife and I were visiting Napa and we're looking for somewhere to dine that would take us to the next level. An evening to remember with beautiful food that was unique. We selected La Toque from the Michelin guide. We had a wonderful evening. We ordered 4 courses with pairings for the savory courses. Both food and wines were exquisite. The staff were well coordinated, knowledgeable and thoughtful. We had a great time.

    Fine but a bit disappointing. Server didn't know the difference between the two very different looking cuts of blue fin tuna (and wasn't interested in finding out). We had the chef's tasting menu with wine, and I had stated that when I reserved, but they seemed to want us to finish quickly so it felt rushed. Food was solid but not memorable. Sommelier was delightful though, and the wine pairings were wonderful.

    We loved the food and the service. I would say my only complaint was that we showed up a bit early to our reservation. We knew we were early but were hoping to have a drink at the bar. We went to check in with the host and to ask if there was a bar area, he immediately made some rude comments about showing up early on a holiday weekend, expectations, blah, blah without letting us speak. We almost left but decided as our reservation was quite late we wouldn't find another. We found our way to the bar (he did not show us) and from then on the evening was fantastic. The bartenders and later our servers were top notch, and the food was amazing.

Kitchen staff try's hard to make everything perfect on the plate, and they do. don't miss the lobster and pork belly entree, Oh yes this is a tasting menu restaurant, there are 3 different tasting menus to chooses from and lots of selections but you gotta know your food.

    My wife and I had the 5 and 4 course tasting menus, respectively. I had the wine parings with mine. Overall, a great experience (even though it was a few days after the earthquake). The staff was friendly and responsive. Our waiter, Peter, was professional and attentive (as was the rest of the wait staff). Our sommelier, Zoe H, was a delight. She was very informative and engaging, answering all my questions about the wine pairings. The food was excellent. Each course was visually enticing, and delicious. The timing of the courses was spot-on. Well worth your time to visit this venue.

    Six of us enjoyed dinner at La Toque. The food was great as always: scallops and rib eye were excellent. The service from our head waiter was unfriendly, cold and not very helpful. The bus staff were engaging, friendly, courteous and very efficient. Our seating was inside on the patio area where it was a little noisy and we felt out in the middle of the room. The wine list was comprehensive. we enjoyed the four course dinner and wine pairing. The wines were well matched to the food.

    The food was amazing! Ambience and service all great. What I really loved about the place was that I got to choose 3 or more dishes to taste rather than eating an appetizer and a main dish as in most other restaurants. Small prions were just the right size and although I chose the 3 dishes+1 dessert , I was pretty full by the time my third dish came.

    The restaurant is excellent; chef is on top of his game. We did the 3 choices with wine parings. Everything was great although the portions are as expected very small - really just a taste. So with that said you really need to go for the 4 parings if you are hungry. Service was balanced and generally well paced. A bit of a lag between #2 and #3 but not a major glitch. Wine was interesting and appropriate spanning the globe - not just the Napa area. I would return and go for the four. Pricing seems a bit high but you do get what you pay for - expect a $500 tab for two persons.

    We visit Napa every other year. I spent twenty years as a corporate restaurant Vice President. We were excited to visit La Toque. My step daughter just bought new high heels. She was having difficulty navigating on them as we entered. After being seated the Mgr came to the table and stated that she would not be served anymore alcohol. We have just arrived in Napa and had not visited any wineries yet. Totally unacceptable approach. Embarrassing and uncomfortable. The way it should have been handled was to summon me to the front and discuss with me. This set the tone for the meal and the rest of the evening was uncomfortable. I understand the concern of all eateries to protect their liability issues but this was mishandled.

    Excellent food with fantastic service. The tasting menu is paced perfectly, the flavors traverse the palette from bright and fresh to rich and earthy while maintaining a lightness appropriate for the season. Service is attentive and friendly; the servers read our moods and respond accordingly. Last time I dined here my fiancee did not particularly care for one particular dish. The waiter noticed she was moving through it slowly, and immediately brought her a new dish without question.

    My wife and I had dine there within the last eight months after a day of Wine tasting and had a fantastic meal and experience. So I thought it would be great to take my wife there for our 24th wedding anniversary. They made no attempt to make the evening special. We ordered the vegetarian chef menu and opted to go for the pairing thinking this would be a greatexperience. The whole experience was subpar at best. The food left my wife and I feeling nauseated! with an upset stomach for two days after the meal at a cost of $407 including gratuity. I certainly don't mind spending that kind of money on a dinner but it better be fantastic.

    Food and wines were very good. We were five people that had the 3-course+dessert menu and liked everything. After the second course however we waited for 30-40 minutes. Then suddenly we were served the second course again! We sent it back and asked for the third course. Waiter offered an appology for "the mix-up" as she called it. After another 15 minutes we were then served our third course. A much to long waiting time between courses at a top restaurant and apart from an extra ounce of the wine-pairing redwine we were offered no explanation, no compensation, or no real appology. We wondered why they didn't just offer coffee or a drink for the mistake. A small compensation always help. Total experience didn't live up to expectations.

    Overall the experience was ok. The wine flight was as to be expected. Food was good but felt like they were after my wallet. Added truffles to an otherwise exquisite dish.....they charged me 28 extra dollars. Final bill they auto tipped 18 percent. Tell the truth i would have tipped them more. When in a party of two, i feel the tip should be at the discretion of the consumer. My wife feels differently, she enjoyed the experience. Guys bring your cash, it can get pricey.

    Everything was great until one of the courses was not served. I went with a friend, they served me and I politely waited a moment until her fish was served. It didn't come. One of the wait staff saw I wasn't eating and asked if there was a problem, I said I was waiting for my friend's dish. To which he replied she didn't have a course at this time. We reminded him we both ordered the four course meal, told him which dish we were missing, and he didn't offer to keep my dish warm while I waited... Her dish came and they swept it under the rug like nothing happened. AND They still tacked on the automatic 18% grattuity? I expect service to be perfect when I'm paying $100 a person. They dropped the ball and left a sour taste in my mouth.

    My wife and I dined at La Toque during our recent visit to Napa Valley. Needless to say, it was a magnificent dining experience. We both chose to partake in the three course food and wine pairing which provided us the opportunity to experience different foods paired with appropriately matched wines. It was outstanding! The food was brilliantly executed along with a glass of wine which further enhanced the experience. My only "criticism" is the small wine pours, especially with my entrée (lamb). Another ounce (or two) would have greatly enhanced the meal. While pricey, La Toque truly provides its diners a magical food and wine experience.

    Absolutely fantastic! The service was very good. Our party each chose the 3 savory dishes plus dessert. We each enjoyed our dishes immensely! The beef carpaccio and the lobster first course were 2 fantastic, delicate choices. The scallops were tender and scrumptious. 2 of us enjoyed the beef, one enjoyed the lamb and one enjoyed the fish, with each sharing their delicious choice. The sauces with each dish were excellent as were the wine pairings for each course. Our dinner was beyond phenomenal and a memorable way to end our trip to Napa.

    I dined here last year and enjoyed the experience in every way. While competition in Napa is fierce, it seems that the La Toque kitchen has fallen behind. They've nailed pretty presentation, but incongruous flavors plagued most of our courses on the tasting menu. It was a shame. The nice room, staff, setting and customers deserve better meals.

    The food was good but the hotel location left something to be desired. The service was wonderful. We were celebrating our anniversary and were greeted with complimentary sparkling wine and provided with a signed menu upon departure. The wine menu is very extensive, so you are provided with an iPad at the table. This is a huge no no to me. I would rather them have a smaller wine selection chosen with care by their sommelier than electronics at the table. My dessert (a chocolate cake) was not at all inventive and the portion was enormous. My husband had a peanut butter cake that was fun and delicious. Somehow they also mistakenly added $50 to our bill after we had provided our credit card for payment.
