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*

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. :)

I was disappointed. The view has always been great. The service was great. The food however has gone to hell. I may return but only for a drink, not to eat. Sad to see a once great restaurant slide downhill.

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

Amazing food and amazing service. HIGHLY suggest going while the sun is still up, the view is absolutely spectacular. Wonderful end to an amazing day in Napa. 10/10 would recommend to friends BUT be careful of the wine, the glasses add up fast and that is where a $200 meal turns into a $500 meal.

If you want the most memorable experience in Napa Valley go to this restaurant. The views are unparallelled, the service is impeccable and the food is outstanding. Our party of 4 did the prix fixe 4 course menu and it was probably the most money we have ever spent on dinner but it will be a memory for a lifetime. The unexpected amenities of a welcome glass of Schramsberg Blanc De Noir upon seating, an amuse bouche to wet our appetites before our first course, another before the third course and a lovely offering of chocolates to end the evening made on top of our fantastic meal made it a night we will never forget. Next time in Napa I will definately be back to sit in the bar for a drink and a bite. If all goes well I will return for another fabulous 4 course meal.

I had read about Auberge in Gourmet magazine in the 80’s and put it on my bucket list. It was everything i had hoped it would be and more. The setting is so beautiful and the food and service were impeccable without being stuffy. While this has been on my list for 30 years there is nothing about it that feels dated. Nestled into the hillside, with their culinary feet firmly planted in 2018.

We had breakfast there and while the restaurant is beautiful the food was so mediocre. We ordered omelette and buon sante (also healthy omelette dish) and both were very average for the hefty price. The bill was almost 100 dollars for breakfast and that includes no alcohol nothing. Just wasnt worth it. There are so many beautiful places in napa and yountville I will skip this place.

Every course of the brunch hit the mark. The food was excellently prepared. I got the short ribs and my wife the tuna. Conversely I got the tuna tartar and she got the poached shrimp appetizers. My wife said it was the best shrimp she’s had. The view of the valley is lovely and much of what you pay for. But the food is good. Nicely done.

Sadly it was definitely the worst Michelin rated restaurant I have ever been to. The soup came out bland and I expressed this to the waitress and their answer was that's why there is salt on the tables. The next dish that came out was overly salty which makes me believe they were over compensating for the first dish. The third dish veal and it was delicious apart from the side greens that were overly sour for the dish. Didn't help we were at the French Laundry for lunch that same day.

Is the chef Curry there for too long .? This was today my fifth or Sixth experience in this usually outstanding place. Same elegance and very professional and friendly service, same amazing, wine list but disappointing cuisine. Where is the old time creativity of the chef? i still remember today some dishes that i have eaten 10 y ago ! What we had today did not deserve a Michelin star and was even very far from it. The season salad from the fixed day menu was ordinary, the buratta de bufala was slightly dry (i even asked for some olive oil) and the accompagning vegetables tasteless; tasteless were also the tuna and the halibut that we had as main course. The chef seems to have forgotten that provencal cuisine is always based on herbs and spices.
We had a good time because of the amazing view, the good wine and the nice service given by Alishia. Thank God the atmosphere made for the cuisine. In my eyes the shining of the Auberge has lost today its intensity.

Weekend brunch 4 people. Starters were amazing: foie gras w/pineapple, burrata w/asparagus, gnocchi w/mushrooms. Entrees faltered except for excellent short rib. Pork chop good but kim chi rice was too spicy for our friend (she's Swiss and just can't take any chile heat); lobster omelet had chopped lobster mixed with ricotta, and both diners would have preferred just lobster by itself as a filling (although lobster flavor was good). Desserts as always were five star; Pastry Chef Lemieux is a genius so DO NOT MISS them! View is spectacular, service is flawless. Our favorite place for a Napa Valley lunch; this was our ninth visit.

First time we went we loved it here....this time.....not so much. Food was very good and ambience of course was amazing. However, service was certainly not great. It was not bad, it was that our server, John S, rushed us. He was very nice but this is not the restaurant to be rushed. We literally had wine, 3 courses, and dessert in 90 minutes!! And, he actually picked up the completed check (after CC signature and tip) while we were still sitting there!! That is my ultimate faux pas.

Disappointed.... we will be skipping Auberge during our next trip to Napa.

We’ve choose the 4 course experience. It was amazing from the start to the desert and special cheeses. The service was perfect and the view from balcony is stunning. They have a lot of excelents wine options by glass.
Be ready to spent around US$ 450 per couple.
