We sat on the patio to celebrate Father’s Day. OMG the food was amazing and the service was outstanding! Each course was thoughtfully paired with a wonderful wine. They happily accommodated my annoying dietary restriction, and my meal was equally awesome as everyone else’s. The courses themselves were only a few bites each, but after 7 of them I was perfectly sated. There was some traffic noise outside since the outdoor seating is in front, adjacent to Highway 12 (with a few rows of vines as a privacy screen), but it didn’t bother us. I can’t believe I had not been here yet. Great time, great value. Most importantly, Dad left happy.

A great value in the wine country. Seven small plates to pair with 7 different wines. John, the chef, is passionate about his choices of food to complement the wines. We sat outside and were never hurried.

Always a favorite, we eagerly await their seasonal menu changes that focus on the freshest and current farm produce. We just visited after their CV-19 re-opening and everything was perfect. Clean, organized and tables set very far apart. Let's not forget how amazingly each course pairs with the Mayo Reserve wines. A definite must on your visit to the amazing Sonoma Wine Country!!

Another amazing food/wine pairing experience at Mayo. I've lost count as to how many o times we have been now but every time, without fail, we are overwhelmed with the delicious flavors from both the food and the wine. Chef John is outstanding at his craft and it shines through in the food he prepares. We can't wait for our next visit!!

This was our second time here, we brought our daughter and her new husband to celebrate her moms birthday this time. It was his first visit to Napa Valley. Once again, we were not disappointed at Mayo. The service was outstanding, he really knew all about the wine and the chef was equally knowledgeable of the pairings. We enjoyed every course and will be back!!

We’ve been several times and they never disappoint. Chef John’s wine choices from the excellent Mayo wines are spot on and truly compliment the food. His food creations are at the same time unique and familiar. Amounts are perfect- we left well satisfied. And very reasonable price. Plus Chef John presents and explains the dishes and what to expect with the interaction with the paired wine. And even though they were busy the pace was just right- not slow, not rushed. Overall, perfect!

This is one of the best if not the best winery to go for an outstanding wine and food paring.
John the chief was very friendly and explained the wine as it was presented with dish.

This is a gem in Sonoma and a must stop! An experience to be remembered for years to come. The food and wine were outstanding as well as the service and hospitality provided by John and Chris! My favorite pairing was an uncommon varietal, Alicante Bouchet Reserve paired with “Neux Pha Lo” Thai Egg delicious! The two perfectly complimented each other!

If you have yet to try Mayo, what are you waiting for?? For such a small winery, they have an incredible food & wine paring reserve room. A testament to the quality of their wines.

They also have a traditionally tasting room down the road. However, the food pairing here really steps the experience up.
