Chef Ken Frank’s landmark restaurant, La Toque has earned a Michelin Star every year they have been awarded in Wine Country. We are also the recipient of Wine Spectator’s highest honor, The Grand Award, for our wine list and service excellence.
Pairing wine and food is our passion. The pairings on our menus are considered by many to be the ultimate food and wine experience. Our culinary team and Sommeliers taste together daily, constantly exploring, looking for combinations that elevate both the food and wine, creating harmony.

We offer 3 different menus nightly at La Toque.
The Core Menu, where you can make your selections from a list of savory dishes and desserts.
Or choose the Vegetable Tasting Menu of five courses and dessert.
And for the ultimate La Toque experience, put yourself in Chef’s hands and go with The Chef’s Table Menu, a pre-selected menu of nine courses including 6 savory dishes, cheese, and two desserts.

    Been meaning to write this review for a while now as La Toque was sincerely the lowest point of our May 2019 Napa vacation. I cannot express in words how simply disappointing our whole dining experience was from start to finish. We arrived for an early reservation but were still surprised to see we were the only table in the restaurant. This should have been a huge red flag.

    Clearly a bad night at the office when both service and food suffered, seemingly because of a large private room booking which is no excuse. My Halibut was partially overcooked as prep was uneven; the veal chop was not a great piece of meat and as for the strawberry shortbread it was the worst ever - just bread. A small point but should diners have to pour their own wine in a Michelin Star restaurant? I don't think so. All these points were raised with our waiter at the end of the evening. It would have been nice to get some acknowledgement from the restaurant subsequently.

    Wow 2 years later and what a difference in experience - and not good. The food and the wine were just mediocre. The flavors did not work with the wines served. The wines served were less than 40 per bottle as well. And nothing was outstanding. 650 for 2people. I feel taken advantage and will NOT be back. Wonderful food, and wine pairing dinner. The staff was great, and they provided excellent service. This is dinner not to be missed! There were 4 people in our party and we all loved every food and every wine that was poured.

    We were extremely disappointed in La Toque. The service was subpar and the food was not good. We waited an average of 30 minutes between each course. When the food finally got to us, one of our items was cold (when not supposed to be). The flavors were just okay. Each time, we had someone new delivering our food and sometimes they’d tell us about it, sometimes not. We have no problem paying $500 for two people when it’s worth it. This just wasn’t even close.

    It is a lovely restaurant, the service is exquisite, the staff knowledgable, the food was amazing. This is not a restaurant that I would consider an “everyday” restaurant. The menu is strictly a tasting menu, with 9, 4, or 3 options from the menu. The 9 dish option looked amazing, and was the Chef’s pick, It is the only menu section that may not be part of any of the smaller tasting selections. All in all, it was an amazing experience and I would definitely go back.

    The atmosphere and presentation of food is fine dining quality. The servers are friendly and attentive. However, when the food goes into your mouth, I felt that there was something lacking. Maybe it was flavor, nor was the fish extraordinarily fresh. The mouth experience wasn’t as nice as the eye experience. Overall it is a nice restaurant but I’m not sure about the Michelin Star.

    La Toque is a beautiful culinary experience, but you get what you pay for. The menu is pricey and there is a minimum 3 course dinner requirement, so this is not a place to go for a quick bite. However, the service was impeccable as you would expect from a Michelin star restaurant. We fully enjoyed watching the plating of large parties nearby. If you are looking to indulge, this is the place to go.

    The big drawback to this restaurant is the location: inside a tourist hotel. The decor is drab and uninteresting, the dining room is visually uninspiring and boring. Since it contributes to the dining experience, we thought it was a huge negative. The food was very good, as was the plating and the service. We had the cod, bass, rabbit, and veal, all good. We celebrated a big occasion and they were kind enough to bring us champagne gratis. The sommelier shared excellent info re the wine list. For this level of restaurant, however, and at this cost, something’s lacking: there’s no real personality or majesty. The service, though good, was not particularly sophisticated and not what we expected from this level restaurant. So it fell short and we won’t be going back.

    First, they have an excellent wine list particularly strong in California Cult wines in vintages dating back 10-20 years. There Burgundies,Rhone, and Bordeaux wines are also impressive in the choices that are available of some of the more recent vintages. We shared a black truffle toast that was infused with cheese, the caviar course was excellent, and the duck and steak were superb and cooked perfectly. We ordered a 2002 Le Moine Corton Charlemagne and brought a 1996 Leroy Chambertin. Both were drinking really well. I would highly recommend this restaurant and would eat there again

    This restaurant was easy to get a reservation for and was at our hotel, so we booked it. Wine pairings were great, however the food wasn’t bad, but just fell short of being worth the price tag. The crudo could’ve had more bright citrus, the vegetarian pasta could’ve had a bit more flavor. Again, nothing was bad, but for what we paid, we were expecting a mind blowing experience. Have no complaints about the service. Sommelier was spectacular.
