Auberge du Soleil Restaurant began in 1981 nestled on 33 acres overlooking the lush vines of the Napa Valley. The cuisine has evolved with a wine country theme where innovative menus inspired by the bounty of the vine are paired with food in ways that delight and inspire longtime devotees. The Bistro & Bar is ideal for sipping wine at sunset on the terrace, a casual meal al fresco, or a nightcap by the fireplace. The Restaurant presents luxury at its finest while overlooking some of Napa's most renowned vineyards. Offering more that 40 of the Valley’s finest wines by the glass and boasting a cellar of nearly 17,000 wines, our guests can enjoy a full sensory experience of the California wine country.

Summer Dinner reservations available online 5:30-6:00 and 8:00-9:00 PM. All online reservations between Apr 1-Nov 30 are confirmed outside on the terrace, weather permitting. *Please review the OpenTable confirmation email for important details regarding your reservation*

We’ve had a great time and the food was awesome! Totally recommend this restaurant! Specially for a special occasion or a date. It’s good to make the reservation in advance because you can call and ask for a table outdoors. The view is breathtaking.

Wow the view was spectacular. I should have read all the reviews first before we went. Only offer 3 or 4 course meals and a 6 taste menu. Waaaay over priced the food was good but not worth it at all. I wish they published the prices on the menu $120/ 3 course meal. I know it’s Napa but that was crazy. Great service and a spectacular view

My wife and I joined a friend at Auberge du Soleil last week. We hit up a number of the nicer spots while in Napa and Sonoma valley. For the most part, we had excellent experiences, though Auberge was ultimately a disappointment.

The good:
Auberge is in an absolutely beautiful setting. The view from the Terrace is stunning, arguably the best in Napa for lunch. The wine list is excellent, with many thoughtful inclusions from smaller boutique wineries in the region. The food is good, though not amazing. One dish of note was the gnocchi with wild mushrooms. Including the time we've spent in Rome and Florence, these were perhaps the best gnocchi I've ever had. While I enjoyed the short ribs with chanterelles, they were not especially memorable, though in fairness this may be due to the fact that I had a similar dish a couple of days later at Mustard's Grill which was earth-shatteringly fantastic.

The unfortunate:
The service was rather stiff and cold, and somewhat unattentive, considering how few tables they have. We ordered bubbly to start and I had to get up from the table and retrieve the bottle myself a number of times. We ordered a Cab Sauv dominant Bordeaux style blend which probably should have been decanted, but was not. Perhaps the worst issue was the manner in which they handled my friend finding an eyelash in her Halibut Crudu. While the manager managed an apology it included a completely inappropriate and chastising remark about her having the use a magnifying glass to find the hair. They removed the item from the bill and offered to bring another, but made no other gesture to make things right. This may seem like a small thing but is unacceptable for a Michelin starred establishment and a $500 lunch for 3.

While I did enjoy elements of my visit to Auberge, with as many excellent choices as there are in the area, I probably won't return. They also need to take a closer look at their service and need to take ownership of their failings when they occur.

Awesome experience with such creative cuisine plus lovely view. Services are good and waiters are friendly. Have to experience any least one meal when you visit Napa. Remember to make a reservation first!!

The views are beautiful but unless you are super hungry I would recommend skipping the overpriced meal options which only gives you a choice between 3 or 4 course dinners! Who eats that much after a day of wine tasting? Instead just order from their bar menu.

True commitment to customer service. I accidentally made my reservation for the wrong day and the restaurant still accommodated me with no question. This, plus stellar wait staff, on top of amazing food. There needs to be another star category for this level of service.

The place is not as I remembered. It is a bit worn now. The food was Good but not great. The wines were tremendously overpriced and not really very good. It seemed that the sommelier’s job was to point you to the most expensive item rather than the one that would complement your food. We had a three course meal, with two amuse bouche, a palate cleanser,mignardise and yet we were out in one hour 15 minutes. I’ve had more leisurely dining in a diner!
I would not recommend this place.

The view was amazing. The service and food were excellent. Sat outside on the patio but had a bee issue while we were dining. Staff from the hotel sat close to us (in the bar area) and their language was a little “rough”. The cost for dinner was a little pricey ($500 including tip for the two of us). Did order a $100 bottle of wine that we could have night for half that at a store. We were delighted with the food and service. We did have a bee issue during the meal which was annoying to say the least. I guess that’s the price you pay for a great view outside on the patio. :)

We had the tasting menu. The food was very good however the service was mechanical and uninspired. Staff had little understanding of what they were serving and no Understanding of the wine pairing which the wine director was not there to explain. Finally each course seemed to have the same shape.

Overall a spectacular venue but a disappointing dinner for a one star restaurant
