Chef Ken Frank’s landmark restaurant, La Toque has earned a Michelin Star every year they have been awarded in Wine Country. We are also the recipient of Wine Spectator’s highest honor, The Grand Award, for our wine list and service excellence.
Pairing wine and food is our passion. The pairings on our menus are considered by many to be the ultimate food and wine experience. Our culinary team and Sommeliers taste together daily, constantly exploring, looking for combinations that elevate both the food and wine, creating harmony.

We offer 3 different menus nightly at La Toque.
The Core Menu, where you can make your selections from a list of savory dishes and desserts.
Or choose the Vegetable Tasting Menu of five courses and dessert.
And for the ultimate La Toque experience, put yourself in Chef’s hands and go with The Chef’s Table Menu, a pre-selected menu of nine courses including 6 savory dishes, cheese, and two desserts.

Its unfortunate that there isn't a main dish for pescatarians. There should be a way to make a seafood dish for people that don't eat meat.

It is a lovely restaurant, the service is exquisite, the staff knowledgable, the food was amazing. This is not a restaurant that I would consider an “everyday” restaurant. The menu is strictly a tasting menu, with 9, 4, or 3 options from the menu. The 9 dish option looked amazing, and was the Chef’s pick, It is the only menu section that may not be part of any of the smaller tasting selections. All in all, it was an amazing experience and I would definitely go back.

The atmosphere and presentation of food is fine dining quality. The servers are friendly and attentive. However, when the food goes into your mouth, I felt that there was something lacking. Maybe it was flavor, nor was the fish extraordinarily fresh. The mouth experience wasn’t as nice as the eye experience. Overall it is a nice restaurant but I’m not sure about the Michelin Star.

The wine pairing with the tasting menu had NO local wines on it.

There were NO local ports on the wine list.

The food was good, but not what I would expect from a Michelin star.

La Toque is a beautiful culinary experience, but you get what you pay for. The menu is pricey and there is a minimum 3 course dinner requirement, so this is not a place to go for a quick bite. However, the service was impeccable as you would expect from a Michelin star restaurant. We fully enjoyed watching the plating of large parties nearby. If you are looking to indulge, this is the place to go.

The big drawback to this restaurant is the location: inside a tourist hotel. The decor is drab and uninteresting, the dining room is visually uninspiring and boring. Since it contributes to the dining experience, we thought it was a huge negative. The food was very good, as was the plating and the service. We had the cod, bass, rabbit, and veal, all good. We celebrated a big occasion and they were kind enough to bring us champagne gratis. The sommelier shared excellent info re the wine list. For this level of restaurant, however, and at this cost, something’s lacking: there’s no real personality or majesty. The service, though good, was not particularly sophisticated and not what we expected from this level restaurant. So it fell short and we won’t be going back.

First, they have an excellent wine list particularly strong in California Cult wines in vintages dating back 10-20 years. There Burgundies,Rhone, and Bordeaux wines are also impressive in the choices that are available of some of the more recent vintages. We shared a black truffle toast that was infused with cheese, the caviar course was excellent, and the duck and steak were superb and cooked perfectly. We ordered a 2002 Le Moine Corton Charlemagne and brought a 1996 Leroy Chambertin. Both were drinking really well. I would highly recommend this restaurant and would eat there again

This restaurant was easy to get a reservation for and was at our hotel, so we booked it. Wine pairings were great, however the food wasn’t bad, but just fell short of being worth the price tag. The crudo could’ve had more bright citrus, the vegetarian pasta could’ve had a bit more flavor. Again, nothing was bad, but for what we paid, we were expecting a mind blowing experience. Have no complaints about the service. Sommelier was spectacular.

La Toque staff greeted us and thanked my husband and I for our fifth visit to the restaurant with two glasses of the Roederer champagne. This is our must stop when we visit Napa Valley. We loved the 21 day dry aged duck breast. It had crusted skin with tender meat. We also tried the 1/2 truffle sandwich, black cod, scallops, cheese course. Everything was just delicious!!! Again, the food and the service were both A+++.

Truffles? Who knew truffles in the right hands could make such a wonderful, subtle difference, and Ken Frank is a master chef with an exceedingly deft hand. We celebrated our wedding anniversary at La Toque with the special truffle menu, and I was slightly concerned when we first ordered that the truffles would overwhelm the other flavors in the multi-course dinner. Throw any such concern to the Napa winds, as each course had just the right amount and right presentation. I confess my favorite was when the Chef came to the table and personally shaved the truffle on the top of some of the best ravioli I've ever had. This attention to detail and overall care for the diners was evident throughout the meal. We declined the wine pairings (too much wine tasting already!) but the sommelier's recommendations were fabulous and introduced us to wineries we hadn't even heard of before. We had planned much of our trip to Napa around this dinner, and it delivered in every way possible.

La Toque is the best of French cuisine in Napa. The staff are wonderful and very attentive. This is definitely a place for a special celebration. More Michelin stars are deserved. This is our go-to restaurant in the Napa Valley.
