My friends and I (we’re locals; born and raised in St Helena) had breakfast on Friday morning, and it was one of the best breakfasts we’ve ever had. The food was delicious, with the omelette wasn’t cooked (I assume by the looks and tastes), in/with butter or oil. I especially appreciated you having gluten free bread, and delicious, natural, pure, strawberry jam, without added sugar. The coffee was the best, as was the service (outstanding!), and the ambiance. I want to bring my husband to Lucy’s for breakfast!😊 My gals friends want to come for lunch sometime, but will definitely be back for more delicious breakfasts, and we are going to tell everyone we know to visit Lucy’s. The grounds are so beautiful also, with the waterfalls and greenery. You don’t see the beauty from the street, but this is a hidden gem!!
Thank you for a delicious, delightful morning!

Was in town for a little getaway, and came here for lunch on a Monday. Cocktails were great! Oysters were great and the mains were fantastic. I highly recommend the shrimp po boy!

Lunch was so disappointing. The restaurant was completely empty-a sign we ignored. My soba noodle/tuna dish was flavorless. The butternut squash risotto also lacked flavor and had a lot of strange texture due to Brussels spout and pomegranate seeds. The truffle fries and beet salad were delicious however.

Service was a bit confusing as we were told our server would have another employee observing but after the initial introduction of the employee in training-we never saw her. The server was fine but very quiet and hard to get recommendations from her.

We will not be back.

Personal service here! Staff is great and attentive. We've ate here several times and every time the food and service is superb. It's known for its brunch but I really enjoyed dinner. We started with ahi tuna . Then ordered duck duo and gnocchi. It did not disappoint. Can't wait to come back to this restaurant and hotel.

Off season, you do not need reservations.

Brunch, the French toast is very good.😋

By the way, they are the only restaurant in Napa that acknowledged our 11-year anniversary and treated us accordingly. Bravo 👏🏻

Our food was delicious! The gnocchi was to die for. My Beef filet was perfectly flavored and cooked. Highly recommend the Creme Brule trio for dessert. The toilets in the restrooms topped off our experience. We’re buying a bidet when we come home. Lol

I thought this was going to be a “farm-to table” kind of place but it ended up being a greasy spoon kind of lunch menu. Completely disappointed.

My wife and I took a romantic trip to Napa Valley for a weekend get away. We had spectacular food and service experiences everywhere we went, except Lucy Restaurant.

We were one of the first patrons in the restaurant for an 11:30am reservation. The restaurant was nearly deserted, so you would think the service and food would come quickly to our table. Not exactly. We had to wait over 35 minutes for the food to be delivered, and they messed up the order. My wife ordered a "make your own" omelette and they added raw onions to hers despite that she never ordered them. Because the food was delivered so late, we did not comment or make a fuss because we had to depart quickly for a wine tasting appointment about a 1/2 hour away.

The food quality was good and the hotel/restaurant are beautiful, but I doubt we will go back.

The food was good, but nothing fantastic. The tastiest item we received was the bread. The shellfish paella was undercooked, the fillet was very good and perfectly cooked, the gnocchi was good, and the wild mushrooms fricasee with white truffle oil was very late arriving to the table and had no white truffle flavor. We will not be going back.

This is a beautifully decorated restaurant and the service is top notch.

Our food was hit and miss. We loved the beet salad and scallops but the shell fish risotto was inedible and the beef fillet was simply ok.

There are a few other menu items that look interesting and may draw us back - but we left our first visit with mixed emotions.

This is the first bad meal I’ve had in Yountville. I ordered the paella in entre size. What arrived was a quarter cup of over-cooked rice in a soup of watered down Chef-Boyardee tomato sauce with 4 tiny clams and 4 mussels, for $36. I first asked the waiter if he’d made a mistake and served the appetizer side, but he said no. When I later called him over and told him “this is not the quality I expect at Lucy” he responded that he would forward that to the chef. There was no offer to remove the paella and replace with another entre. When I left, the GM asked how the meal was, and I responded: “I’m a regular at Lucy, but today’s meal was abysmal and I don’t believe I’ll return.” He stared at me without comment, and after 10 seconds I simply left.

It was an over-priced bad meal, and despite my expressing dissatisfaction, the response made clear they did not care. I have had a number of good meals here, but after tonight, I will never return.

The food and service was great. They have fine wines by the glass starting at $18-$50. So best to just bring a bottle in unless you really want a glass like Opus One for $50. Better to buy the bottle outside for $100 and pay the corkage fee for $25!

Despite having made a reservation and being on time, we were first placed a table that I would think one would leave for overflow - right at the entry way. The hostess was nice enough to offer mimosas while we wait for a new table. That was beyond what I expected, especially because the wait was not long. Unfortunately, once we were seated and were given our waters, no one came back for some time. We happen to see the hostess and flagged her down. She apologize and quickly took our order and then went on to offer us something extra which ended up being desert as that is what she recommended. Well, it gets better in a good way... she came back and comped our meals because of the below standard service we experienced. Now that was a great gesture and not what we expected. A pleasant surprise. I've been there numerous times and will go back, however, hope that the service improves.

The food was fantastic and ambiance very romantic. Wine prices are ridiculous, though. I'm used to paying 2 to 2 1/2 times store prices when out for dinner, but their prices are 4/5 times the base rate - absolutely ridiculous, with no reasonable options. Cheapest glass of Chardonnay was $24, with bottles $125 - $200+. That's insane for the options offered. Food was far more reasonably priced - very odd.

Dining room was unusable for lunch due to sanding /vacuuming going on behind a door. We were given conflicting explanations for why this was happening during the lunch hour. We eventually were reseated outside (during a rather rainy week). The staff was very apologetic and worked to accommodate us, but it would have been nicer to have been able to sit inside.

A group of 7 had our Christmas dinner here. The staff were great, friendly and accommodating. The food was great. Very seasonal and well-executed. I had brioche-stuffed quail topped with huckleberry compote atop a mix of lentils and vegetables. Others had the lamb chops and the lobster risotto. All were enjoyed. We enjoyed cocktails, wines, and even cappuccinos. I definitely recommend.
