We enjoyed the food and wine pairing, the food was great and the wines were excellent. The staff spoke about the wines and the service made the experience even more enjoyable.

Food was excellent as were the wine choices. Pretty hard sell to join their wine clubs. They do not allow you to buy wines outside the clubs at the lunch--you can later...kinda silly.

Absolutely amazing wine pairing! The food was spectacular and truly was enhanced by the wine, and vice versa, the wine enhanced the food. It was a lovely experience.

What's not to like? The pairings were great, and sometimes perfect. It's a relaxing environment, not over-the-top, but high quality.

We love the St Francis food and wine pairing as do many and have been through many of the menus over the last 10 years. This particular menu, although very good, was not as "mouth watering, clamoring for more" as many of the others.

This is one of the great eating experiences anywhere. Think of this as a food pairing (as opposed to “wine pairing”). The always excellent St Francis wines are paired with food that brings out the best in the wine. The food is outstanding and presented exquisitely. The servers are terrific and friendly in explaining each dish and each wine. Plus, it’s a very fun experience, and you get to meet new people.

We have Done this meal perhaps 10 times. Every meal has been unique and excellent and we look forward to our next outing!

We are wine club members and we have done the wine/food pairing lunches several times. Always great although some dishes are not quite there for me. This in no way detracts from the overall experience.
The value is great and the information accompanying each dish is excellent. Highly recommended to anyone who is serious about wine and food.

Best food and wine pairing I have ever done!
Each pairing was more than enough food in ratio to the wine poured so you could have several bites and sips to truly evaluate wether the wine/food really did pair well or not.
They were very generous in offering to revisit the wines poured or even offered a few not on the menu if interested in buying.
GREAT EXPERIENCE!

What an incredible experience! The food was outstanding and the wine pairings impeccable. The staff was friendly, knowledgeable and focused on creating a memorable meal for the group. Group size was small allowing St. Francis to focus on the small details which mean so much.

Quite good, but I've had better in for example Danko in San Francisco. But when looking at cost compare to quality I'd give a 5 stars.

Due to the fires and power outages everyone cancelled but they still did the food and wine paring just for the 2 of us. It was wonderful couldn’t ask for a better experience! The food and wine especially the hostess’s made us feel at home.

The St Francis wine and food pairing is a great experience. They serve 5 small-dish courses, each paired with a different wine. The two hosts explain about the wine, and what you should notice about how the wine and food taste together. There are two tables of 8 guests, so you get to meet other like-minded people in an intimate setting. The room is elegant, and looks out over the grape vines and hills in the background. We do this event once a year, and have never been disappointed!

We’ve been members at St. Francis for 8+ years. We love the food and wine experience and we are excited for it every year. However, we were disappointed with the facilitators this year. When they showed up in jeans with their hair in messy buns, their appearance seemed mismatched with the experience. There were also servers in jeans and yoga pants. We highly recommend this event to everyone we know and now we’re second guessing it. We hope St Francis will match the presenters to the experience in the future.

It was a delightful experience! The explanation of the wine and food pairing was so informative; it motivates you the experiment with other wines and food to create your own pairing. We will be back.
Of particular note are the two hostesses who by their expert presentation makes this a learning and fun experience!

My lifetime (we met in grade school) friends came to visit. For one week we went everywhere: SF the city, Tahoe, Napa, Sonoma. But the highlight of the trip was our visit to St. Francis. We enjoyed every minute, every taste: from the friendly greeting with a glass of Chardonnay to the last bite of the food/wine pairing. What a day. What incredible food. What great wine. A special thanks to the St. Francis staff. Can't wait to visit again.

By far the best wine and food pairing. The staff is always friendly and knowledgeable. Chef Trevor continues to knock it out of the park with his food. We visit twice a year and always recommend to family and friends.
