    Everything here was good but Yountville has so many outstanding restaurants which makes this one subpar in comparison. Also my lobster tail was a tad chewy and I had to use my steak knife to cut it into pieces.

    We enjoyed a very quiet dinner on the patio. It was right before the Napa Valley film festival begins, so things were quiet. Menu items can be ordered in half and full size portions, so you can create your own tasting menu. Service was impeccable and very attentive, but not over the top.

    The restaurant is beautiful and the food was delicious. We had the surf and turf, the salmon, the tuna ceviche, the sole and the scallops. All were great and flavorful. The desserts were perfectly portioned and delicious! Greg was a great server and suggested great alcohol pairs for the dishes. Thank you!

    Nice outdoor patio for dining. Food had a good presentation. I had scallops and beef. Scallops were good but beef had no flavor. Others in the party had fish dish that was not cooked well. Duck and antelope were undercooked. Very over-priced for the quality of food and for the small portions. I would not go back to this restaurant.

    Four of us had dinner last week and we all felt the food was good, but just wasn't memorable. The location is lovely and the service was nice, but the food missed the mark. There are too many other great restaurants in town so the competition is stiff and it just didn't meet up with expectations. Lovely place though and we will come back for cocktails to enjoy the ambiance.

    The setting is absolutely beautiful. We sat outside and it was so pretty. The food was good. I like that you could order full or half portions. It's very "foodie" there. I waas ready for more simple foods but that's not their fault. Only complaint was that the wine was pretty expensive. Service was very good.

    From the beginning to end we had a lovely evening. Our host was so friendly and suggested we have dinner on the patio. This turned out to be a beautifully lit patio surrounded by bamboo and several pools of water. It was slightly chilly that evening but they had several strategically placed heaters that made it very comfortable. We started with a house green salad and the butternut squash soup with a lobster claw. The soup and salad were both amazing. Our main course was a perfectly cooked pork chop with apples and the lobster risotto. The lobster risotto was perfectly cooked. The flavor was perfection. The only reason we did not give a five star rating was because our server forgot to add the lobster to my soup but it was fixed quickly.

    After enjoying 2 meals at other local yountville restaurants the previous 2 evenings this was a disappointment. It was difficult to enjoy after we were greeted by 2 valet employees who told us they would not valet our car since we were not staying there or part of the wedding party. They were actually just rude and said we could park on the street around front. Oh how nice!!! Especially since one in my party is 73 years old and another is celebrating a birthday. I couldn't believe that a hotel/restaurant would treat their patrons this way. All other rest were booked. we would have loved to have left at this point but we stayed since i had the reservation. Dining was good but nothing worth going back for.

Sitting outside at Lucy and enjoying the courtyard encourages lovely conversation and intimacy. The service was excellent every time, all the time - from 5:00 am through the late evening hours.

    This was a great spot for us to meet some old friends for lunch. The selection of items is varied enough to meet most people's interests. While the servings are generally small, the food is well prepared and very good. Eating in the outdoor patio is also fun and a great spot to be able to talk and not bother others. The waiter was also patient with us since we took about 2 hrs for lunch.

    The food was pretty good, the scallops were AMAZING, the antelope was good (not great) and the mint chocolate cake was yummy. I really liked how there were two portions offered for a dish, I was able to eat just enough without getting overly stuffed. The outdoor patio area was very nice and relaxing, loved all the plants and the pond. I would go back for a glass of wine and to sit out side. Service was decent, our busser was very friendly and attentive.

    My husband and I were very disappointed by our experience here. The food looked incredible, but it did not taste incredible. We have eaten far better meals at many other restaurants. My salmon benedict was not very flavorful and our French toast was burned on the outside, but gooey on the inside. The ambiance was pretty, but not special. The service was not excellent either. I had high expectations for Lucy due to other reviews that I read, but my expectations were definitely not met and we definitely will not go back here.

    With all the many famous restaurants in Yountville and with this being our 4th visit, we wanted to try something new with our adult children. I happened to walk by the morning of our reservation and just peek in. I was greeted so nicely (even though the restaurant wasn't even open yet) and explained that we had reservations that evening. She wanted to show me the table they had selected for us and it was the best center table in the house! We were treated that evening like we were the only ones there; the presentation and explanation of each dish was superb! We loved being able to order two half orders to experience more of their fresh cuisine. Cannot say enough great things about Lucy's...our new favorite restaurant in Yountville!!!

    I'm so glad we gave Lucy another chance, thanks to GM Ross Wheatley reaching out and telling us about Dog Bar. 3 of us went and brought 2 dogs, then stayed (minus one dog) for dinner outside. It seemed like every person on staff came out to greet us and our dog, and made sure we all felt very welcome. It will be our new go to dog friendly place, despite the longer drive. The Maine lobster risotto was flawless--great seasoning, bright acidity, lobster and rice properly cooked. Carrot salad was again a hit, and the burger was tasty. Even the very plain chicken breast I ordered for the dog was perfectly cooked and delicious, and it had NO seasoning! Highly recommended, and bring your dog!!

    The corn soup was mostly cream, s2nd course was a joke! Steamed colorful carrots had no flavor at all and some supposed sauce was absent. It was bland, way too many carrots and a waste of time. A salad with fresh produce that is so abundant right now would have made more sense to an already starchy first course. The scallops were perfect but on yet another starch, corn pudding. But only 2 scallops? I have ordered scallops in endless restaurants and have always had three if not four! The dessert was lovely! My husband order Prosecco, $10 a glass and asked to have a little orange juice in it. Somehow the addition of that turned the prosecco into a $16 drink. Orange juice is cheaper than prosecco. This meal was a complete ripoff!!

    The Bardessono is absolutely amazing. The architecture, ambiance, and scenery are beautiful. But Lucy was so so for breakfast. The coffee was great, the fruit excellent, and the service was decent. Her eggs were very, very good, but my French Toast? Ughh. It was completely soggy and way, way undercooked throughout. Honestly, not edible at all. By the time they came to check on us, she was finished so I didn't give it a 2nd go. But they were great about adjusting the bill. We would return for sure though.

The food was very good, they are true to their word about from the farm to the table fresh. Service was very attentive but not hanging all over you. Atmosphere - we chose to eat outside in their courtyard and with their unique heaters were very comfortable as well as all the other guests and had a very quiet, peaceful and memorable evening.

    We purchased a Living Social deal for the 4 course lunch with a $30 wine credit. We had a wonderful, light and sweet corn soup as a starter with a dollop of cold panna cotta. Just right for a hot day. Soup was followed by a baby carrot salad which was more than adequate. Entrees were a choice of Maine Diver's Scallops or Mary's chicken (check out website for prep) - both were very good although we both gave the Diver's scallops the edge over the chicken. Dessert followed of panna cotta with strawberries - light and yum. Many wines to choose from to make good use of the $30 credit. Service was attentive. We sat outside on the patio with our doggie - very quiet and relaxing compared to the bustle of the wineries and Yountville scene.
