Dominique & Julio5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding experienceFine wines and decadent cuisine by top-rated chef Dave Bush. Exquisite for mind, body and spirit!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food at the pairing isThe food at the pairing is amazing. I would best describe the food as simple, sexy and to the point with only the freshest ingredients. Chef bush is a creative and down to earth mastermind. The standout course was the sea bass in a broth with lemon, orange and bacon.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe'll Definitely ReturnWe thoroughly enjoyed the food/wine pairing. What fun! Every bite of every dish, and every sip of the 5 or 6 different wines was a delight. The hostess who described each course was perfect, giving just enough information, then backing off and leaving us to our own conversations. The other servers were perfect also, with the paired wines and foods coming out almost simultaneously. And the round-table seating made it fun as well; making it inevitable that we meet interesting people from far away, while allowing plenty of opportunity for privacy within our own party of two. Not to mention one of the best views in the wine country. We live close by and plan to return to the food/wine pairings every time they change the menu.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMThis was my 4th visit forThis was my 4th visit for the food & wine pairing and the 2nd visit for the others in the group I travel with. It is now on our "must do" list whenever we visit the area. We did arrive about 10 minutes late due to unusual traffic delays coming out of the Sacramento area. We called in advance to let them know we would be a bit late and the response to this was a bit on the rude side.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMEvery paired tasting menuEvery paired tasting menu continues to be fabulous, with much coming from their winery garden!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptionalIt's very strange that there isn't a (long) waiting list for this experience. Despite being limited to wines solely form the winery the kitchen managed to pull off some really breathtaking pairings that bested any we've had at places like Coi, Benu and even the dearly departed Cyrus. Service was exceptional: knowledgeable but warm.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Food and Wine pairingThe Food and Wine pairing was a Foodie's Delight.
We took friends for a birthday celebration and the whole experience was delightful.
It was the new menu for April and each course was beautifully presented and the wine matched to the course truly enhanced both the food and the wine. The staff was knowledgeable and could readily discuss each pairings special nuances. The treat was the chef's joining the group to answer questions and explain the 'whys' behind his pairing choices.
We will go back and would not hesitate to treat other frieds to the experience.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMTop NotchVery impressive, excellent food, great staff, top notch wine. The entire wine pairings meal was definitely worth it. I have already recommended it to many of my friends. We will definitely put it on our last of places to revisit. As a special treat the chef came out to talk with us. He was even willing to tell us how he prepared the dishes. This winery visit was worth every star and then some more.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMIT was a great experience.IT was a great experience. It gave me ideas on how to pair wines with food as well as tasting some flavors that I never would have tried on my own. It was great fine. I went with a group of five and we all enjoyed the experience. The help ws friendly and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed when the sous chef came out and spoke to us at the end of the meal.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe shared my wife's birthdayWe shared my wife's birthday here enjoying the wonderful view of the vineyard while learning about Chef David Bush's 5-course meal paired with exclusive St. Francis wines. This was a most memorable experience, even topping the dinner at French Laundry. We are now their loyal wine club members!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Way to Experience Fine WineThe "food and wine" pairing at the St. Francis Winery is exquisite. This is a first-class experience without being stuffy and the perfect way to experience and evaluate fine wines. The various plates were beautifully presented and the menu fun and interesting. A visit by the chef was a highlight and enabled everyone to learn about the recipes and fresh Santa Rosa-area fruits and vegetables as well. All agreed that it could only be better by lasting all day!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the experience. ItLoved the experience.
