St. Francis Winery & Vineyards
Closed: Tuesday & Wednesday
This was a wonderful time enjoying the tasting and wine pairing. It was a really great experience.
Excellent food and wine pairing. Tried a few foods I don't normally eat and they were delicious. Great experience to match food and wine.
We did the Food and Wine Pairing and wow! This was an incredible meal and all around experience. Highly suggest getting there a little early and walking around the vineyards before your tasting begins - it is a truly beautiful setting. This experience is a 5 course tasting menu with wine pairings, but the portions were very good sizes (see pictures). I only got 3 pictures because the other two courses were so delicious, I couldn't wait to eat them. The pictures don't do the food justice. Just know that it was the best meal we had in Sonoma! HIGHLY recommend!
The wine and food pairing at St Francis is amazing. Of course the wine is superb, but the food is mouth watering too. The Duck Confit is the best duck we’ve ever had. The service was educational and well done.
New chef does not quite have the food and wine pairing down like the previous chef did who was amazing. A hard act to follow. But still a very memorable experience
This experience was a phenomenal wine/food pairing. We tried some of their best wines along with little bites of amazing food from their head chef (who came out at the end to answer questions). It was a perfect event during our honeymoon!
Good food. The rave reviews are unwarranted and overstated. The food was good but not great. Every molecule was described. Wine not so good - even w/ wine pairing, good food did not elevate the wine.
The food and wine pairing was fantastic. As always.
Our group of four enjoyed the food and wine pairing. Every course was delicious!
Fantastic food and wine pairing. The food was delicious and unique. The wine went well with each course and the setting was intimate, allowing for conversations and questions with our hostess. Truly an unforgettable meal. The chef joined us as the end of the meal to explain his ingredients and food choices, which made the event all the more memorable. Great job.
We attended the wine and food pairing lunch. The food was creative and delicious. The wine was fabulous and the information and service by the staff valuable.
The five-course wine and food pairing was everything we had hoped. The food was locally sourced, fresh, and creative, and each course was paired with an amazing St. Francis wine. The entire two-hour dining experience was wonderful, and I would recommend it for anyone that enjoys great food and wine. Plan ahead. Reservations are needed and fill up quickly. Plan ahead.
I do the St Francis wine & food pairing every year. The food is always creative and delicious. The wine is also wonderful. Overall a great experience in a very beautiful setting.
I have always loved the food and wine pairing here but this time instead of every course being fabulous, the food was merely okay. There is a new chef. Will try it perhaps once more and see if it can go back to fabulous
We’re members of this winery. We loved the previous chef Brian and the one before him. The new one is good, but not as sophisticated flavors and pairings. We will be back to try again. We love the staff, the wines and the winery. Renee is the best
The wine pairing lunch is amazing. The experience is wonderful on every level. The dining room seats only 16 people and overlooks the beautiful vineyard. The hosts are fun and knowledgeable and review each course and wine. The food is beautifully presented and covers a range of local ingredients. I would come here every month if I lived nearby.
Outstanding pairing of food and wine. All food was exceptional and wines were premium.
The food is delicious and beautifully presented. Each wine paired well and we enjoyed the experience. It's expensive but a nice special occasion treat.
This is a special treat when out of town friends, who love good wine, come to town!
Wine and food tasting was fabulous! Every bite and sip divine! Just a tiny bit rushed would be my only complaint.
This was one of the loveliest experiences I have had in the wine country. Exquisite cuisine paired with exceptional wine. Would highly recommend this experience. The breathtaking setting, fabulous service, delectable cuisine and wine selections, ambiance, and special attention to detail was all excellent!
Our third visit and still great.
We were nervous about the new chef, but he was wonderful.
We came here 6 months ago and it was so wonderful that we came again but we were very disappointed this time~come to find out that they have a new chef which explains the major problem.
It is sad when we both agreed that the only good things were the vanilla ice cream with the huckleberry sauce and the port.
The lobster chow mein had very little flavor ~ just the 3 small bites of lobster tasted deceit.
The pan seared white sea bass was cooked too long and was dried out.
The duck confit was dry also.
The worst was the beef and pork “meatloaf” that was served in a weird bowl and was hard and not worth a second bite.
The wines were OK but nothing special.
At the end the hosts said if we wanted another sip of wine to let them know, so my HH asked one host for a bit more of the port. Nothing happened, so after a few minutes he asked the other host for a bit more but again she brought nothing. After we left the table and we were standing at the register paying, my HH said aloud, that it would have been nice to have more port. So as we were leaving, suddenly a host brings a glass of port to which my HH replied that it was too late now since we were leaving.
We will NOT come back because $72 a person for ice cream, sauce and port, is too expensive and besides there was the poor service.
The only good thing to say was they did a nice job at preparing gluten free dishes for me~too bad they did not taste good.
The wines and food pairings were excellent. The only negative view I had was that the tasting room was extremely chilly.
The two presenters should have been more professional and knowledgeable
This is our second time eating here. The first time the food was so rich, even though it seemed like small portions, I couldn't eat it all. This time, I felt it was the perfect amount of food. My sea bass was a bit dry (hence the 4 stars rather than 5). Everything else was incredibly perfect including the wonderful wines.
Absolutely wonderful and delicious, as always! We try to do the food and wine pairing at the onset of each new season... or whenever we have visitors from out-of-town. Very special experience and it never gets old.
The wine and food pairing at St. Francis is always and outstanding experience and a great way to provide a treat for good friends.
This is our fourth time here and each time it gets better
This is an outstanding wine and food pairing experience. Food is of Michelin quality - beautifully presented and executed. And what value - at most restaurants you would pay double the current charge for the food alone, let alone the very good wines.
The only drawback is that the menu is set (except re dietary requirements) so you can't be picky.
If visiting Napa and are in any way a foodie (and most visitors to Napa are) you would be a fool to miss out on this!
The wine pairing lunch was outstanding. It was an intimate group of 16 in a lovely setting overlooking the vineyard. I tried food I never thought I would such as duck as the dishes were so well put together and flavorful. The staff is very friendly, and the wines were wonderful.
Perfect in every way!
One of kind food/wine pairing experience! Highly recommended.
It was my first wine and food pairing and met all my expectations...and more if that's possible. It was like having 4 delicious main courses at the same dinner plus the wine pairing chosen by the winery made it just right. and yes, the dessert pairing made it a perfect ending. I want to go again.
Fabulous, tasty dishes paired with a variety of wines. Highly recommend!
My husband and grown daughter went for the food and wine pairing, and raved about it.
This was rated among the top 100 on OpenTable in the entire U.S. In fact, I thought I read somewhere that it was #1. While we truly enjoyed this experience and would recommend it for both its quality food and its reasonably good value, the bar was set absurdly high. It's a great experience, but top 100 in the country? I don't know that I'd go that far. Don't let that dissuade you, however. It's still a great 90-minute experience.
If you like wine and food, it is an excellent deal. Everything is thoughtfully prepared and delicious.
The whole experience was a special treat!!! The pairing of the wine and food was superb. We will definitely do it again.
I hate giving such grate reviews. Too many people might start going.
