Wonderful experience. They built a covered outdoor space for the food and wine pairing that is beautiful. It overlooks the vineyards and hills. Very safe social distance between tables so we felt safe. The food and wine pair was fantastic. The food was so thoughtful created to pair with the wine and was so delicious. The wines taste so much more complex when paired with the food. A wonderful experience.

The food and wine pairing at St Francis is a must when traveling to Sonoma. The care in which the chef paired the food with wine was superb. The staff walked us through every course at the right cadence and we were allowed to savor each bite and each pairing. The menu changes slightly every two weeks so I hate to elaborate on a particular dish but know that this experience is worth every minute and dollar spent!

AMAZING!!! We have done this food and wine pairing many times! It is the best food I’ve ever had! They got a new chef recently and he has absolutely knocked it out of the park! The wine is also to die for! Do yourself a favor and book this pairing

The wine was awesome, 2014 Zin my favorite but I bought a bottle of port since it was also outstanding. The chef did an incredible job pairing the food with the wine. The vegetarian dish with the Malbec was amazing. I can’t wait to go back.
I would have liked to sit outside for this event but the property is beautiful and I had great view.Hostesses also did a fantastic job presenting.

We participate in St. Francis' food and wine pairing at least twice a year. This was our first visit this year with the new chef. The food was innovative, delicious and beautifully presented, and we look forward to more tastings from this chef.
In the period of Covid, they have made adjustments to increase safety. There were only 10 people at the tasting (I think it usually was 18 or 20 in a room that holds 150+); our table was at least six feet from the nearest one, and we were near the doors which were open. All the wines were pre-poured and the food was delivered by masked staff wearing gloves. One issue: because the staff was all masked, it was difficult to hear/understand the staff explaining about the food and the wines; one staff in particular (new, I think?) was very hard to understand.
But overall, a very enjoyable experience that felt quite safe.

The paired food and wine experience at St. Francis is fantastic. The dishes presented were very delicious and unique. Definitely things that I could/would never make at home. One recommendation would be a palette cleanser between the final dish and dessert.
Beautiful dining room. Beautiful location. Excellent service. The host was informative and professional.

I had a lovely experience! It started with walking onto the beautiful estate. I did the lunch tasting menu and the food was fantastic: perfectly seasoned, perfectly paired with the wines, perfectly portioned. It was an intimate experience as well. There were only 2 couples and I signed up on a Thursday morning. Our "guide" for the experience was knowledgeable, funny, and kind. And the chef came out to chat for a bit when we were all done. I'll definitely be checking out St. Francis again!

Had missed the food and wine pairing during Covid stay at home orders. Went yesterday with smaller well placed grouping. With a new chef the menu was outstanding-the usual 5 course offering was plentiful and beautifully prepared and the wines continue to more than satisfy.
Especially loved the scallop presentation and the duck.
Can’t wait to return in the fall!

Both the food and the wine were OIALEs. (once in a lifetime experiences). Proper safety quidelines were enforced without interfering with the beauty of the experience. We enjoyed a beautiful view of Hood Mountain while we enjoyed some of the best food and wine of our lives.

We do this every year for our anniversary and it never disappoints. Perfect pairing of wines to moan-worthy dishes. Made even more notable this year as we were the last seating before the Corona Virus shutdown. Thank you to all the staff that made this special. Our hearts go out to you. We'll be back as soon as you reopen!

Even though the food was supposed to take a backseat to the wine, the food itself rivals that of many Michelin starred restaurants albeit without a lot of choices.

Celebrating our Anniversary and had to make this one of our stops. Love it here. Food and wine pairing is just perfect. So enjoy the small venue because you really get to know the other guest for the seating. Every time we come it’s special. Great value and delicious!
