Went there for St. Patrick's Day - 23rd anniversary. The BEST corned beef I have ever had! The service is great and frienly too!
Carpe Vino is superb. We are definitely part of the younger crowd that dines at Carpe Vino. I hope people our age catch on so this establishment will be here in 20 years!
We had a fun St. Pat's at Carpe Vino, really enjoyed the alderwood smoked salmon starter! Wow. Excellent server (sorry to not have made note of his name) who had a very nice touch and sense of timing. You might think that corned beef and fine dining is a funny pairing but it was excellent and I can't wait for St. Pat's at Carpe next year!
As always, our experience at Carpe Vino was amazing. From the start with our reservations made with Patti, to our excellent server, their service is phenomenal. The food is always so delicious and creative. What makes this restaurant even better is they will be a full bar soon. We definitely will be back!
Best dining experience in a long time. Still one of my favorite "foodie" places to go. Deserves to be in the top 10 restaurants in Sacramento! Food was excellently prepared, the wine list incredible (with wine store prices, since Carpe Vino is both a restaurant and wine club/store), the ambiance is lovely, the service wonderful, just a little noisy because of the high ceiling and brick wall.
Wonderful dinner. Loved trying new wines. Paul is the best!
Excellent food and service - more of an European dining experience. Portions are not oversized like too many restaurants. Dining at Carpe Vino needs to be viewed as a dining experience not to be rushed.
This was our second dinner at Carpe Vino and we were somewhat disappointed in the food. The service was definitely not the same caliber as we had experienced on our first visit.
Always good. Always consistent. We often try to think of someplace else to go, but in the end we go to Carpe Vino.
Wonderful experience as usual. The new menu options are phenomenal especially the petrale sole. The wait staff is always attentive and well adept at suggesting wine pairings. This place is consistently 5 stars and should be considered amongst the best restaurants in Sacramento.
Superb food and service.
The food and service at Carpe Vino is exceptional. We have enjoyed celebrating special occasions at the restaurant several times, always delightfully. Thank you!
Fantastic food and excellent service. Pricing is fair for the value received.
Eating at Carpe Vino is always a treat. The service is excellent, attentive and friendly. The food is delicious, creative, and changing with the seasons. My *only* criticism is, ironically, the wine. When I choose a bottle of nice wine from their expanded list, it is frequently not available. It's probably a great expense to keep a large wine inventory on hand, but it is a wine bar, after all. At the very least, the digital list should be kept updated.
All considered, CV is my *favorite* area restaurant.
The best restaurant in Auburn, by far. I would say best restaurant outside of Sacramento. The service is amazing and the food is outstanding!
Great food and wonderful service.
Carpe Vino is definitely a special occasion place. The food is creative and very well prepared and presented. The service was attentive and knowledgeable , but not overwhelming . We were there on a Tuesday night and as a result it was not busy or loud. It's not large, but on a busy night it could be loud. it's in a popular location in Auburn, so parking was a challenge. It's expensive, but worthy of a splurge.
Outstanding. Only negative had nothing to do with the restaurant just some noisy people that showed up later however they were asked to keep it down. Outstanding food and wine.
Wonderful romantic dinner with my husband! So nice to be able to go out in a quiet atmosphere and be able to hear each other talk. The food was fantastic and beautifully prepared. The service was incredible! Try the oysters, they are a party in your mouth! Large wine selection .
It was amazing ❤️ We arrived early so did wine tasting at the Bar... Enjoyed Crab Appetizer and Scallop Entree and Beef Cheeks melted in our mouths! Our Favorite Server did his Magic ❤️ Short drive from Sacramento... Thank You for making our Date Night Special ❤️
We were running late due to traffic. We called ahead to let them know and put in our order. Patty held our table and had our order in to the kitchen before they closed. The table was set precisely with an equisite arrangement of flowers in vase. Kendall provided us with outstanding service. The food was superb and the wines selected by Paul were nicely paired. Three cheers for Carpe Vino!
Amazing food and service as usual. Wine was exceptional
The food is the best! The menu changes with seasonal variations and dishes are beautifully presented and taste wonderful. My husband and I shared the beet salad--nice touches of grapefruit, orange, etc.--and I had the lamb meatballs, my husband the wagyu sirloin. We often share a cheese plate (not this night) but enjoyed our desserts--almond cake and chocolate cheesecake. The atmosphere is convivial and easy going, staff is friendly and helpful; wine list extensive. Only comment is that servers handle all bussing--olives, bread, water, clearing items, a lot to manage--and it might be helpful to have a person roving to pour water, clear tables, get bread, etc.
Carpe Vino is my favorite restaurant anywhere in Northern California. The food is amazing due to the special gourmet sauces that are unique to this restaurant. We always choose Carpe Vino for all our special occasions. The service is 5 star as they always remember to roll out the red carpet for any special occasion. For example, I brought my husband there last week for his birthday. They had a card on the table for him and when they served desert, they wrote Happy Birthday in chocolate across the plate. The extra personal touches helped to make the evening very special.
Most delectable and interesting food in the entire Sacramento region!
It was not a meal, it was a delightful dining experience.
Best Restaurant in Auburn and equal to almost any restaurant in the Bay Area. Unbelievable wine list for reasonable cost. Creative chef with the best, organic, sustainable and local ingredients. Friendly atmosphere and cute part of town for after dinner window shopping/ antiquing.
Great service and great food!
Tom was wonderful and we had a great meal. The pork chops are amazing
Prompt efficient service. Delicious food.
I would highly recommend this restaurant. Great food and exceptional service.
Fabulous food. The cream of mushroom soup is awesome and so glad it was back on the menu!
Great service. Delicious food! The lamb meatballs were to die for! We will definitely be back.
Such great fresh flavors. Every course was so delicious. I love how the sauces were not rich & cloying but bright and accompanied each item on the plate. I will definitely come back here. The server need to slow down a bit, he seemed to be in a hurry and it was not busy. We could not even get a sentence out before he was gone again.
Friendly vibe, delicious food, terrific fairly priced wines and great service. The broth in the mussel appetizer was to die for. And the double cut pork chop was substantial and perfectly cooked. The best restaurant in Auburn!
Absolutely five-star fabulous! Best beef-cheek I have ever tasted. Other offerings equally spectacular, and wine availability and advice excellent. Worth the drive to Auburn!
Basically the best restaurant in Auburn. The wine list isn't exhaustive by any means, but what they have is very good.
One of the best restaurants, if not the best, in the entire Sacramento region. Great wine list that is priced at retail (if only more restaurants went this way, or at least had conservative markups), great service, and a chef that can be counted on to deliver great dishes consistently.
Went there with my wife with great expectations. We were disappointed. The waiter was very gratious and enthusiastic about the food.
The food was so-so.....not what I expected. Would not go back.
Carpe Vino has a small selection of excellently prepared small plates that will satisfy even the most particular palates. They specialize in high quality wines from all over California, and especially the local area.
