We had the food and wine pairing. I feel it was worth every penny. Our favorite dish was the pork adobado, but the whole meal was very good. The wine pairings were excellent, especially the Old Vines Zinfandel. I would dine here again.
Wonderful wine and food pairing. Such attention to detail by the chef and the winery. Absolutely delicious and beautifully presented food paired perfectly with their excellent wines. Well worth the price!
As a part-time resident, this is my favorite place to entertain friends visiting Sonoma Valley. Thanks to chef Bryan Jones' creativity it is an opportunity to appreciate the wines of St. Francis in a way that would otherwise not be possible.
I have done the food/wine pairing at St. FRANCIS four times now- it never disappoints. I love taking others to have this experience. Lovely food expertly paired and knowlegable staff.
The food is outstanding and built to match the wines you are tasting. Absolutely fabulous experience.
This was my fourth food pairing and it was the best of all ! The cucumber gazpacho and the Morrocan Fish Tangine were our favorites. My friend said this was the best food she's ever had anywhere in the world. The wine pairings were outstanding, the presentation elegant, the staff informative and delightful. And how can you beat the scenery - their beautiful grounds under Hood Mt., which is still glorious despite the burn scars. Always a memorable experience at St. Francis.
The food and wine pairing was great and our hosts were knowledgeable and fun.
This is one of the best wine and food pairings around. Beautiful location, great staff and always an opportunity to taste food focused on great wine expertly prepared. If near Santa Rosa reserve early...definitely a do not miss.
I recently experienced the 11:00 seating at St. Francis Winery. I primarily booked based on reviews and reputation. Believe me....the reviews are absolutely correct! This was the highlight of our Sonoma wine weekend. The food was exquisite and the wine pairings complemented them beautifully. The chef came out for questions near the end. I CANNOT wait to return at a later date.
We've enjoyed this special wine and food experience 5 times and each time it's been extraordinary. Our out of town guests have been impressed by this experience and enjoyed it thoroughly.
My husband and I spent a week in Sonoma wine tasting. St. Francis winery was my absolute favorite. The food pairings were outstanding, each coarse was better than the last one.
I would defenetly recommend it to anyone and next time we are in Sonoma, we will go back to St. Francis winery.
The food and wine pairing came highly recommended and definitely lived up to expectations. The food was wonderful. It was artfully arranged and delicious. The staff was very accommodating and concerned with everyone having a good experience. They called a week or two ahead to determine if we had any food allergies. The offerings for those with allergies looked as appealing as the other options were. It was a great experience. Will definitely do it again on our next visit to Sonoma.
Splendid event of wines paired with delicious food. Rene and Andrea are knowledgeable and personable as they discoursed on the wind and food. I'll be back soon!
This was our second wine and food pairing at St. Francis. Absolutely worth the 750 mile drive from Salt Lake. The wine, of course, is superb, and Chef did a great job with the food selection and preparation. Look forward to coming back next year.
Out of this world. Very accommodating to vegans.
Had the dinner and wine pairing. Highflying remcomned it. Worth it!
Delightful, entertaining hosts for the wine and food pairing. Lively conversation with co-diners. Delicious food made to compliment the wine rather than the other way around.
Always a great experience. We have been many times. Food is always different. They do a wonderful job pairing food with their wine. The staff is wonderful.
Awesome! If you have the chance, just do it!
We were lucky enough to catch a last minute reservation when someone canceled and so happy we did! The food + wine pairing was so well done. It’s amazing how well the wine selection can bring out such a different taste in food that is amazing all on its own. Throw in the wine and it’s a game changer! The staff was great too:)
This was our second time and I was pleased that none of the items on the menu were the same as last time.
Amazing! This was my favorite place in the Napa area. The food and wine pairing was unbelievable. I will be back again.
The staff is very friendly great atmosphere great food beautiful views worth taking someone there for special occasion birthday anniversary etc. meet new people every time we go from different states
We had a great experience at St. Francis! The food and service were both fantastic, our favorite was the Cucumber Gazpacho. We ended up purchasing a few bottles of wine to take home as well, can’t wait to enjoy them!
Thank you so much for a wonderful experience while we were visiting the area!
Delicious wine and food pairing. Each course was very good in terms of pairing, taste, presentation. The group setting was fun too and not awkward. I was at the 11:00am time slot and it was a great time to enjoy the rest of the day and explore. Highly recommend
Great! As always!
Delicious food expertly paired with delicious wine.
My sisters from out of town were visiting and my husband and I took them there. We were all blown away from how fabulous the food and wine were. Great place!
My review has 2 elements: one for those of us without food allergies, and one for the person with gluten, egg, and dairy issues. For those of us who can eat anything, this was a truly delightful wine and food pairing experience. From the lovely sauvignon blanc we were given when we arrived, right through the delicious dishes so exquisitely paired with the perfect wines, we were in heaven. Who could imagine that cauliflower soup could be so yummy or that popcorn grits were so superior to regular ones? The service was also casual, but attentive throughout. Each dish and wine pairing was described before it came to the table, and the wine and food really did bring out the best in each other. Bliss.
For my husband, who gets violently ill if he gets a hint of egg in a dish, and who cannot eat gluten, accommodations were made. At least a week in advance of our meal, we let St. Francis know of his issues. In most cases, changes to his dishes were easy enough to accomplish. Still, simply leaving off the toast that accompanied the Moroccan fish stew seems more neglectful than accommodating. There are tons of gluten-free crackers and breads available in this area. But the deepest cut was dessert. While the rest of us got this fantastic coffee/hazelnut trifle (divine!), he got... sorbet. I can't tell you how depressing it is to have sorbet as your only dessert option. It's a standing joke between us. Desserts that don't contain eggs, gluten, or dairy are hard to come by, not not impossible. It was a disappointing end for him. So, definitely book this pairing and enjoy the food and the atmosphere-- as long as you don't have too many food allergies.
My wife and I were pleased to attend a pairing of St Francis wines with a wonderful menu of several courses. It was the best dining experience in recent memory. The wines were great of course. The food was spectacular. Chef did a great job in the pairings and flavors. The hosts guided the group through each course in a casual yet informative fashion. I would be pleased to recommend this experience to anyone looking to make a memory in Sonoma.
Second time here and everything was as good as the first time. Food is wonderful and wine pairing was right on target.
This was my third wine and food pairing experience at St Francis, and as always, my expectations were exceeded. Outstanding! Highly recommend.
Have been many times and this wine and food pairing never disappoints. The staff are all wonderful, and the food is out of this world - you will wish you could order a full helping of each dish. Finally, the St. Francis wine is outstanding and paired perfectly with the food.
The food and wine pairing is amazing!! Great experience. Looking forward to my next visit!
For a very special occasion. Superb!
Been here many times. We take out of town guests, and it always works like a charm. Educational, informative, great food and wine.
My husband and I came to celebrate his birthday and we weren't disappointed! Everything was incredible - from the creativity of the dishes, to the specific wine pairing, to the friendly staff. Do yourself a favor and put this on your schedule!
Our wine & food pairing experience was excellent! Every course was perfectly paired with wonderful wines. The staff is knowledgeable about the wines and food and provide outstanding service. The chef creates amazing dishes to serve with the wines and the presentations are fabulous. What a great way to spend the day!
What a delightful and delicious wine tasting and food pairing experience. It was very relaxing and with an informative staff.
Everything ~ the food and wines were perfect!
The even did a great job at preparing gluten free dishes for me. The dessert which was different form everyone else’s was yummy. It was a blood orange/chocolate sorbet which I am trying to duplicate at home, it was that good.
