We sat outside around the beautiful pool and gardens. There were plenty of heaters so we were all warm on the cool night.
The food and drinks were all amazing. The halibut special melted my n your mouth.

Exceptional food. Best french toast I've ever had, by far. Also enjoyed the Fruit plate, Smoked Salmon bagel, and an egg white omelet. Top notch service and atmosphere. I only wish we could have stayed there.

This was our second meal, back to back. It was so good, we immediately returned. Fantastic, personable service too. The hotel and restaurant are the "next level" of luxury, and what you would hope for Yountville. We had the two different kinds of steaks and butter lettuce salads. You MUST try the Gnocchi! It is top notch. But so is everything else... And great wine list.

Surprisingly they weren't very busy for a Saturday night. There was plenty of wait staff, so surprisingly requests and returns came slowly at times. The food was excellent, just didn't meet my expectations of amazing. Scallops were cooked perfectly and the salads were very good. Wine by the glass was expensive. Chocolate torte dessert was large and very good, not much of a presentation though. We sat outside which was beautiful. The one single door for everyone to access was insufficient. If this were most places I would have give it five stars, but I think for the money and ambience they could do better. No bread plates was odd, but I appreciate butter and olive oil option.

Cocktails and appetizers were terrific. My entree was good. I ordered halibut. My husband's was fantastic (pasta with pesto) and our friend's entrees were also very good. What really tipped the balance for this restaurant was the amazing wait staff and servers and the gorgeous setting. We arrived on a beautiful evening and sat outside. It smelled so good out there, it was almost as if we were sitting in the middle of the spa. This hotel is really beautiful. I chose it over more well-known, higher-ranked restaurants in the area because I knew how beautiful the outdoor ambience is.

We are locals to Napa. We have enjoyed many wonderful dinners and lunches at Lucy in the past. The property was sold several years ago, and it seems the food and beverage are now less emphasized. Lucy offers both indoor and outdoor seating in a really lovely ambiance. Unfortunately, the menu lacks the creativity we experienced in the past. The prices are very high, even for an upscale venue in Napa. We believe the food pricing is 30% more than you would pay elsewhere for a similar level restaurant. The property now caters to hotel guests as a convenience for them. Although the restaurant manager told us that the clientele is evenly mixed between locals and tourists, I have doubt that locals will frequent the restaurant in light of the higher menu pricing and the somewhat basic menu choices. There are simply too many other fine dining choices in Napa. It was a great disappointment to us to discover the new Lucy. I ordered dinner from the bar menu, and that turned out fine. We concluded that if and when we decide to return to Lucy, it will be in the outdoor bar area. We appreciated that the restaurant manager came to our table to hear our concerns, and he comped our first courses. We did appreciate his hospitality and willingness to listen.

We have been to Lucy many times and like it very much. Last Saturday just wasn't up to the normal excellent experience. Incredibly slow service (although great attitude), and the food was good but not great as previously. Sometimes that happens, so we'll go back and hope this was just a glitch.

Three of us had a special dinner here and were blown away by the setting and food. The outdoor patio with reflecting pools was magical for dining. The halibut was cooked perfectly in a light sauce and the fresh pasta was great. The service could not have been more welcoming yet not intrusive. I just moved to and am working my way through the many great restaurants. I would put this at the top of the list. It is a hidden gem.

Arrived for a 1 p.m. reservation for 4 people. The valet was very attentive and friendly.

Must've been shift change, because we waited 10 minutes to be seated in an empty restaurant by a different hostess. Found out it was a Sunday brunch menu, not lunch, which limited the choices. The server came by after about 5 minutes. We ordered drinks and food. We were able to order a couple of appetizers from the bar menu to give us more variety.

The drinks came in about 20 minutes. 15 minutes after that, an unknown person came out to ask the two people in our party who had ordered Ceasar Salads if they wanted chicken or shrimp on their salads (neither - and shouldn't the server have asked that at the time of order?). About 15 minutes later the server asked if we'd like another order of drinks (no thanks). Still no food.

It was roughly another 10 minutes before the food arrived. The Eggs Benedict and the fish and chips were just barely warm. The appetizers and mains all came out together. The flavors were pretty good, but nothing to write home about.

The server NEVER stopped by to check on the quality of our food.

Very disappointing experience for what was a highly rated Napa Valley restaurant. We would not recommend this place. Even if you're staying at this hotel (which had very lovely grounds), you could walk or drive to MANY places with equal or better food that would provide a much better experience.

The atmosphere was great. The service declined once our entrees were served. We had no one check in with us after our entrees were served even though there were minimal patrons in the restaurant. I had put that the dinner was my boyfriends birthday upon booking the reservation but nothing special was done for him.

The gnocchi was raved about so we ordered it to share but it is missing a sauce element that would have added flavor. It tasted under seasoned and was underwhelming since it is such a well known dish.

The experience at Lucy was great! Friendly staff from the time we drove up, through reception and staff that waited on us. Folks were from the east and Italy, and they really enjoyed the dinner and the friendly attention. Food was great, dessert as well. I'll be back with other clients for sure!

What a magnificent restaurant located in the Bardessono Resort and Spa.

My wife ordered the Mary's Chicken Sandwich,guajillo pepper aioli, avocado, Hobbs’ bacon, roasted tomato,and house made potato chips, very good.

I ordered the burger with lettuce, tomato, onion and great home made fries with the skins on. Came with a side of super assorted pickles.

We enjoyed a wonderful evening on the patio at Lucy. The hostess warmly welcomed us and our server paced our meal perfectly!

We began with a grilled stone fruit salad and a caesar salad as starters followed by the salmon and the halibut. The dishes were all beautifully plated
And exceptionally fresh in taste and texture. The chocolate dessert with home made cinnamon ice cream was irresistibly delicious and the perfect finale to
The birthday dinner- thank you to all the staff for a special night!

We arrived behind a group of 6 typically unsure millennials who kept the hostess running around looking for a specific table. We just stood there while 3 other employees chatted and laughed. Finally, I got one of theirs attention. He apologized and went to look for the hostess. The place was empty, and I mean empty, should not have been that hard.

Service was slow and spotty. Again, there were two tables with people. I wonder what it is like when (or if) they get busy.

The food was good, slightly better than just okay. Nothing was spectacular.

We talked to a friend the day after and she commented that when she had visited the week prior, the place was empty as well.
