    The setting is lovely but the service was abysmal. It was a hot day and our water was not refilled until we flagged down another server (not our own who did not check in on us at all). My daughter had a headache after the meal which was clearly due to dehydration; once she drank water in the car it went away. We painstakingly ordered a gluten-free option (I called the restaurant in advance to make sure we would could do this). Our sorbet dessert was sent with cookies. I felt this mistake was inexcusable considering how much time we spent explaining to the waitress that my daughter could not have wheat products. Plus the meal was expensive, good but not great. We will not return.

    Loved the food at the restaurant when we dined previously but at the bar, the food was just mediocre. Everything was salty and over-cheesed. We had fried calamari, margherita pizza, hamachi crudo and pasta. Hamachi was unimpressive, four very small and thin slices w minimal flavor. Everything else was too salty. The chocolate tart was excellent however. Also, the server forgot completely to bring our bottles of sparkling water.

    It doesn’t get any better than the patio at Auberge. I booked a bit late and couldn’t get a reservation at the restaurant and opted for the bar. It’s decent high end bar food but the restaurant is where it’s at. Next time I’ll make a point of booking earlier and get a reservation at the restaurant.

    At least two of our burger buns were burnt and the burger was overcooked. It was fine at most, not what I expected when I booked this place for our late lunch.

    Amazing experience. We sat on the balcony at sunset. Zach, our server, was great. There are heaters above each table so even when it got a bit chilly after the sun went down, it was still very pleasant.

    Every time we come to Napa we make sure to have lunch on the patio. The service, the food and the view are top notch. It is a very relaxing and peaceful experience. Would love to see a burrata option on the a la carte menu but we had the cheese and meat charcuterie and it was wonderful. We'll be back.

    Apart from one of the most beautiful views in the world, the food is always divinely delish. The service impeccable and for me, the most warm and friendly staff in all of Napa.

    We sat outside the bar area on the deck. The view was spectacular. Our meal was terrific and the wine selection was wonderful. Attentive and friendly service. Would highly recommend!

    I had wanted to visit this restaurant for awhile and finally it was worth the wait. The views are amazing. The sea bass was the best I ever had. The service was amazing
