    The wines were very disappointing. Also, the room was small so with a big group next to us that had been drinking for a while and was extremely loud, it wasn't a good experience. The food was fine but not outstanding. The best part of the experience was the staff. They were knowledgeable and extremely gracious.

    Absolutely one of our favorite experiences in Sonoma!! This year was no exception - such a great concept and fun way to wine taste along with the amazing chef prepared food selections. Our host was informative and delightful and the chef was kind and even prepared special dishes for me as I am gluten intolerant. Just worth the time - would not miss this experience!!

    Good food and wine. My main objection was that a bill was presented at the end of the meal and I was offered pre-selected gratuities, which I have come to expect. However, I did not realize until afterwards that our take-home wine purchase was included in that, so my tip was considerably higher than the 20% I intended to leave for the meal. There should have been a separate bill presented for the wine purchase.

    This is our third time having Mayo's food and wine pairing and it's always outstanding! Their wine is delicious on it's own but paired with the food, delivers an outstanding blend to taste. We also love their friendly and informative service and appreciate that the chef brings out the tastings and explains why they were chosen with the wines. Anne also provided a special touch to our experience. Looking forward to next time!

    The staff at Mayo truly made this an extraordinary experience! We were greeted and seated right away, even though we were 1/2 hour early. Our server Ann was fantastic! She walked us through our wines, their origin, how they were stored and how they will pair with the food to be stored. She really made the pairing a wonderful and enlightening experience! The wine was fantastic! Amazing! The food prepared was delicious and thoughtfully presented! Everything was perfect with various staff members chiming throughout. We are still talking about Mayo and what a fun time was had by all! Thanks so much:))

    This experience was amazing! This small family owned winery makes you feel right at home. Chef John is absolutely incredible! He personally greeted us at the door when we arrived for our reservation. The lovely staff (Ann and Krista) walked us through our wine tasting and food pairing showing a level of expertise as well as warmth and friendliness. Chef John served us some of our 7 course wine and food pairing himself, and was funny, informative and clearly so creative and passionate about what he does. Also, as a 20+ year vegan, when I saw they had a vegan option for the pairing menu I had to check it out! Sometimes “vegan option” can mean you get whatever the regular option is, with the most flavorful ingredient taken out, with nothing put back in its place. Chef John showed that thoughtful substitutions for specific dietary needs can be thoughtful, creative and just as delicious! And he didn’t just replace the meat with meat or dairy substitutes. I could tell so much thought and intention went into his selections and his culinary creations. And everything paired SO beautifully with each wine that we were served. 10/10 recommend Mayo Family Winery!

    If you are looking for a really unique where the staff is insanely friendly, look no further than the Mayo Reserve Room. The pairing menu with the wine was simply outstanding! The chef, John, was really knowledgeable about the food, the wine and the region. He was also really funny :) Ann was one of our wait staff and she was also SUPER knowledgeable and so much fun to be around. I highly recommend this if you are in the Sonoma or Napa regions. You will not be disappointed!

    We enjoyed the wine and food parings offering. The wine was amazing and the food parings were exceptionally prepared to complement the wines we enjoyed. The chef explained in much detail each paring and we had a lively and fun experience with both the chef and our waitperson. It was as though we were in our own home with private chef and waitperson. Wine was so awesome we sent a case back to our home. Very exclusive wine selections one would not find elsewhere. Just awesome!!

    We reserved the seven-course wine tasting and food pairing, and were thrilled with the quality of both. From the Sauvignon to the reserve Cabernet, the wines were different, thoughtful and enhanced by the food pairings. Ann and chef John were delightful in their passion, knowledge and interaction with us. We look forward to returning on our next trip, and highly recommend you treat yourself and sign up for emails to learn when the menu changes. A great outing for small groups.

    My second visit to this great winery and the food and wine pairing was even better this time. I prefer the pairing experience to simple tastings as after all that's how I drink most wine. I visited with my vegan daughter and her vegetarian partner and the staff couldn't have been more helpful about adapting the menu. Both chef John Locke and the other host were a delight to talk to, informative and fun, talking not only about the wines, but the principles of choosing pairings and what to expect from each of the seven pairings. Absolutely outstanding, the hit of my daughter's trip.

    We went to do wine pairings as part of our anniversary since we heard great reviews about Mayo Reserve Tastings. Ann and John provided great introductions and presentation. The food was excellent and far better than any of the tastings we’ve ever had. The wine were all good. We especially like Pinot Meunièr. So glad we tried this and able to support their winery. They also support the local farmers which is fantastic.

    Chef John, Ann and staff are wonderful. Down to earth and knowledgeable too. Always make us feel like family. And the food and wine pairing is always out of this world, changing quarterly! Helps bring out different notes in the wine and Chef John is creative with the pairings. The portions are very good for a food and wine pairing (not full lunch) with SEVEN tastes/courses. Try it! Your taste buds will not be disappointed.

    We loved it!! We booked ahead (recommended) for the vegan tasting and Ann and Chef took amazing care of us!! We learned a lot and had great food and wine. The space is very intimate and calm with views of a vineyard across the street. But the star is the food and wine parings! And the people and their expertise. We recommend this winery to everyone!!
