A little pricey. Beautiful
A little pricey. Beautiful (modern) setting. Portions are 'modest'.

Nice hotel restaurant....
The food and service were very good. Great little restaurant within the Bardessono hotel. Also ate breakfast here, but that was forgettable, Go to the Boucheron Bakery around the corner!!

Unforgettable dining experience
What an amazing experience we had Saturday night at Lucy's. The food was delicious and the service was the best. We had the tasting menu with the wine paring. The evening just kept getting better. I have dined at the French Laundry six times and the overall experience at Lucy's was comparable .

a bit disappointed this time.
a bit disappointed this time. at arrival we have wait 10' NOBODY TO WELCOME US! the restaurant seemed without control. the booking has the information birthday dinner, no special attention for this. it seems that Lucy is going down! We have recommended this restaurant, but now we will hesitate to do

We had an amazing experience
We had an amazing experience and have been recommending to everyone we can. This was a special meal and the wine pairings were superb. A new favorite for our group.

Great food every time
The croque madam is so tasty, and the brioche French toast is to die for..

The restaurant is nestled in the middle of a zen like hotel, the view is beautiful and the food was delicious. The waiter, Scott, was very accomodative and even gave us 2 free desserts to sample. The manager, Ross was kind enough to take us to the roof top to see the pool and private party area. I would highly recommend doing a lunch at this restaurant between visiting the area wineries.

Great Spot in Yountville
Went for Father's Day dinner and it was fantastic. The Lobster Risotto was easily the best thing I ate while we were in Napa. Eddy, our server was great, friendly, and accommodating. The restaurant and hotel make for an amazing ambience!
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
I love that many of the items on the menu were available in a smaller portion. It gave us the ability to put together our own tasting menu. This allowed us to really see the range of the kitchen and not have too much food. LOVED IT. The lobster risotto was the star. To top it off, the service was impeccable.

Delectable food, hip setting
Delicious, inventive dishes based on seasonal, sustainable grown ingredients. The restaurant has its own vegetable garden on the property. Meticulously beautiful presentations with every course. You can order half portions of all entrees, which allows tasting of more dishes, which we enjoyed. Service was attentive and discrete. Modern, sleek dining room.

Dinner was great!
It was our anniversary, so we splurged and did the tasting menu for the two of us. Each of the 5 or 6 courses was delicious, and the portions were ample in size- which isn't always the case with multi-course tasting dinners.
It was a warm evening, so we enjoyed the opportunity to eat outside- although dining inside is also very comfortable and elegant. Our waiter was very nice, and took great care of us- not rushing us, but there when we needed something. Overall it was a wonderful evening!

A very special lunch
My wife and I enjoyed a glass of wine served by manager while we waited for others in our party to arrive. Excellent and long list of wine by the glass. We chose to be seated outside in shade for lunch and the environment was quiet and cool on a hot summer day. The server brought water and treats for my son's dog ~ very thoughtful and friendly. The food was delicious! We were all very pleased with our lunch.

Could be better
Lovely hotel. Excellent duck confit. Outdoor seating area feels like an afterthought, tucked in a corner with no view. Seems to work for hotel guests, not so much for non-guests. Inside dining area beautiful but a little austere. Could be great with a little softening and re-orientation of outdoor seating.
7/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very goo team service and outstanding food as well. We were pleasantly surprised!
7/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food without all of the noise
Really enjoyed a great farm to table meal without all of the noise u typically get with other restaurants. Liked the opportunity to order small versions of the entrees. Let us try lots of different foods!

Sunday Night Tasting Menu
Wow! What a great evening at LUCY. The Sunday night tasting menu was fantastic & a real value. All around a super evening.
One of the highlights was the Hawaiian Black Lava Sea Salt, really amp'ed up the taste.
Staff & reservations were very good. Beautiful boutique hotel in Yountville. Better overall meal than Bottega & Ad Hoc (though both of those were great), just short of our best meal (at REDD).
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
We seldom take the turn that puts you on this road in Yountville, so had missed the new hotel Bardessono. Lucy is the hotel restaurant. The whole complex is amazing. So beautiful, and an environmental wonder. We had dinner on the outdoor terrace. Everything was perfect. I especially recommend the homemade gnocchi and the antelope chop. This was an elegant, gourmet treat, for a very reasonable price, considering. We will be back again and again. One hint: many of the dishes come in a small and a large portion. There is a huge difference in price. The small portions are more than adequate. I had a small portion of the gnocchi and a small portion of the antelope chop and it was more than enough.
7/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is a wonderful restaurant
Loved our evening at Lucy Restaurant. From start to finish, everything was first class.

A great find in Yountville
Cheryl and I now have added Lucy's in Yountville to one of our favorite list. This restaurant is staffed with a very attentive staff and provides an excellent meal to boot.
We dine outside because the first time we ate at Lucy's we brought our dog, Sophia. They loved her and in fact a year later asked about her, by name, when we returned.
8/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Outstanding dining experience.
Outstanding dining experience. Two of us ate one night - so great that we brought back four guests next night to introduce them to the Lucy experience. They were all equally impressed.
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We ate at Lucy while we were in Napa Valley to celebrate our anniversary. Lucy was absolutely perfect! The wait staff was so attentive and the foods were all delicious and perfectly prepared! The dessert menu was not to my liking, but that is minor and did not deter from our overall experience!
8/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Most of the restaurants in Yountville are well-known and trendy. Lucy is on par with them, just not as visible as the Bouchon's of the world. Make a point of visiting - the food was outstanding....I've eaten at all of them, with the exception of The French Laundry. The staff was well trained, courteous and nice. It was a great experience to which I plan to return. Well done, Lucy!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
The food, the ambiance and the service was excellent, will definitely return.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Instantly relaxed as you sit
Instantly relaxed as you sit down at Lucy. Recommend outdoor dining - it's amazingly beautiful!
8/29/2013 5:00:00 PM
Chef Victor Scargle had the ability to create food that is flavorful, but not heavy or rich. The restaurant itself is beautiful and the service was top-notch.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome drinks and apps
We tried out Lucy for lunch and it started out beautifully. The melon ball cocktail was perfection! The corn soup and tomato salad were fabulous. The burger and grilled ham and cheese, however, were disappointing. The bread for both sandwiches was dry, overwhelming, and seemed old. We will go back in a heartbeat, but will avoid their sandwiches on our next visit.
9/5/2013 5:00:00 PM
I held a business breakfast there last week. Loved how quiet the dining area was
And how prompt and courteous the servers were. Food was very good. I had the Croque
Madame and my companions had the Eggs Benedict with samon and Classic Breakfast.
No complaints at all on the food.. Look forward to trying lunch and dinner.
9/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
A wonderful dining experience with fresh flavoursome food and excellent wine. Attentive service accompanies a relaxed atmosphere.
9/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very attentive staff. Great
Very attentive staff. Great food. MUSIC TO LOUD - even outside.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We ate breakfasts and a dinner at Lucy while staying at Bardessono. Breakfast was wonderful each morning and we enjoyed sitting outside. The brioche French toast, spinach omelet, fresh fruit and French press coffee were all delicious. We also chose to dine outside for dinner one night and it was very pleasant and not as noisy as inside the restaurant (there was a large party dining in). The ricotta gnocchi and the petrale sole were both great dishes. Many fresh items from the gardens are used in their dishes and everything was wonderful. I would highly recommend this restuarant!
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed it so much that we went back the next day with friends!
A must visit restaurant when in the Yountville area
9/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Terrific dining in Yountville
I was staying at the Bardessono, so I had dinner here the first night I was in Yountville, expecting to go to better restaurants later in my visit. To my surprise, Lucy was better than other more well-known (and Michelin starred) restaurants. The food was inventive and every item was well cooked. I particularly appreciated the ability to get smaller portions of everything, so that I could try more dishes and not leave feeling overstuffed. My companions and I had the tomato salad, ceviche, house-made pasta, lobster risotto, crispy bass, and brownie sundae, all of which I would recommend.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Gem in Yountville
Other more established names might get the spotlight but they had better not take Lucy for granted! Fantastic diverse menu. Every aspect of our meal was fresh and full of life! The wait staff could not have been more attentive yet they were not over bearing When in Yountville be sure to look this special lady up!
9/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lucy's was fab
Great fresh food and a very attentive staff.I highly recommend it and would go bak again
9/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Can't get any better than this
For foodies, this is the place. Seasonal foods are put to the test and the chef should be commended for his talent. When you go to Lucy's try things that you have never tried before. Be adventurous, you won't be disappointed. The heirloom tomatoes are to die for and especially the Bloody Mary bar. Go have fun and enjoy.
9/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very high end experience
Lucy is located in Bandessono Spa and Resort. Mathis is as close to an Amnanouri resort as you will get and al,out as pricy. rooms start at 550 sq ft and at $650 per night..but the whole place is quite exquisite. The restaurant follows through... Beautiful outdoor area..the menu is not huge but varied and quality excellent..and they half and full portions of most dishes ..a definite plus. service was outstanding and we would definitely go back
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Not a bad place to go for dinner. As some of the reviewers have stated, the portions are small and pricy. We had the antelope and the lobster risotto. and both dinners were presented very well. The restaurant is open and a bit noisy. The wait staff is sometimes a little too pretentious, as we like to converse with the staff on occasion. The experience overall was nice, but I think you could get more bang for your buck at several different places in town.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Yountville Brunch
I'd been here for lunch and dinner, but brunch was a nice surprise. Good range of options and great cocktails.
10/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent meal, amazing Define Rose' and bryatiful outdoor area!
10/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
As enjoyable as could be
What's not to like...a beautiful Saturday evening on their patio, great food which can be ordered in half-portions and/or shared, lobster risotto, steak, a friendly and knowledgeable young staff, and an attentive, friendly manager who came by several times to make sure everything was as it should be.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Returned The Next Evening
Fine restaurants are thick on the ground in Yountville. Having said that, it is highly unusual for my wife and I to dine in the same restaurant two nights in a row while visiting wine country. We simply had a marvelous time at Lucy. The service was spot on. The food was great, in particular the dishes influenced by their garden. Finally, we much prefer the small size option for most dishes. The smaller options allowed us to try a greater variety.
The wine list is well thought out. In addition to great local producers, there are some superb European wines available. Also, there are several interesting wines available by the half bottle.
10/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were in Yountville just for one night. We could not get a reservation at a famous spot in town. I am so glad we didn't because we got to check out Lucy's. We first sat at the bar and had Life of Pi Manhattan type cocktails. . They were executed perfectly. The meal was just amazing. Every course better than next. Very fresh and flavorful. And, the meal didn't break the bank. We will definitely be back.
10/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great outdoor dining, food was very ambiance perfect
10/18/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was very good, creative.
Food was very good, creative. The scallops dish was to die for. Very tasty antelope chop too. The duck was not as tender as it could be. Service was attentive, and efficient but not intrusive. I was disappointed in the wine list. Overall the wines were very expensive and the lesser priced alternatives were all foreign and uninteresting. The markups were too high and I'd look into bringing my own next time. I've found in the wine country that most restaurants price their wine much more fairly. Here it way outbalanced the cost of the meal, which is the real reason I go to a restaurant. It's about the food.
10/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very Nice Place
Lucy's was quite the night we went as it is off season in November. However, the food and service were very good.
11/1/2013 5:00:00 PM
Exceeded expectations in every area. Customer service was outstanding -food and wine far exceeded expectations- all in a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Can't recommend this restaurant enough! Look forward to my next trip to the Napa valley so I can go back. Best meal of the entire trip.
11/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
Lucy is an excellent restaurant. Men, your favorite one will be delighted by this restaurant! It is great.
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Love Small Plates
We had the trio of salads, which were all delicious. I had the sunchoke soup, which really stood out as fresh and creamy tasting, but not too heavy. Same for the salmon, the lobster rissoto and the sole. We like the small plates because we are not big eaters but we still have enough to share. Service was a little slow and people seated after us were served first. The manager was friendly and solicitous. We will return.
11/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our first visit makes us so anxious to visit again. The Brunch was delightful, the service warm and friendly. A tour of the facility and the lovely grounds was an added pleasure.
11/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Went for Thanksgiving lunch. Overall excellent presentation and the right amount of portions. Will go again.
