CARPE VINO SERVES PERSONS 21 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER (YES...EVEN THOUGH WE SERVE DINNER). Located in what was originally a Civil War-era saloon in the heart of Old Town Auburn, Carpe Vino offers a unique setting for relishing great wine and stellar cuisine. Enjoy wine and dinner at the "Mary Pickford" wine bar with selections from all over California, or relax in our elegant dining room, surrounded by racks of wine.

Carpe Vino's innovative menu is California themed yet French-inspired. We offer fine dining tempered by our Old West heritage, with many core ingredients sourced from local farmers whom we know by name.

The menu changes virtually weekly, with new selections added based on farmer's market availability. Upwards of 40 wines are available by the glass; since Carpe Vino has a substantial wine shop business, bottles opened in the building are priced at retail plus $5.

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.

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.
