VINeleven is a the restaurant located inside the Napa Valley Marriott hotel. This restaurant is located on the first floor of the hotel and is open to the general public, diners don't need to be a guests at The Marriott to reserve a table. VINeleven features modern American cuisine paired with an excellent bar menu. As one might expect, the bar menu leans heavily into wine as VINeleven is situated right in the heart of California wine country.
VINeleven features two seperate menus. The first is a breakfast menu with both quick items for busy guests and fuller plates for those with a bit more time to spare. Some of the items on this menu include pumpkin flax seed granola, Irish steel cut oatmeal and a fork-and-knife chorizo breakfast burger. The other is an all-day menu that includes both lunch and dinner specialties such as lamb meatballs with feta.
For being at a hotel, this restaurant exceeded expectations. The food was delicious and it was reasonably priced. Came for lunch and there were not many people there, so sat outside and enjoyed the good weather. Ordered a few different things as well as the wine that was currently the special, and everything was great.
I would recommend it only for the food. The restaurants is small, crowded and open to the bar. Therefore it is very noisy and has more the look of a café than a true restaurant. The food was quite good and well presented. I see this as a good place for a drink and a meal, but not for special occasions.
This was our first time to Vineleven. The restaurant is basically part of the entrance into the Napa Marriott. It does not have walls, of any kind, that separate it from all the people entering and exiting the hotel. There happened to be a large conference going on that day and although our dinner was at 8:30pm there was a very vibrant group of attendees at the bar yelling for shots and just being ultra enthusiastic. There is a bar, right in the middle of the restaurant so maybe our timing was bad... but we couldn't hear a thing over the group at the bar and all those walking through the restaurant to get to the bar. Food was good and the server was very sweet as well. Maybe a better place for a fun group of friends, rather than date night. :)
Great burger and fries, juicy and wine prices are
Our brunch got off to a bad start, when the hostess kept us waiting about 10 minutes before announcing that she had no record of our Open Table reservation for 9 people. Once we eventually did get seated, there was also a mixup in the orders, and one person’s salad was not right. But on the positive side, VinEleven did their best to make up for the mishaps, comping us both for the salad and for the drinks. The food (with much local sourcing of ingredients) was quite a bit better than I expected from a Marriott, and I discovered to my pleasant surprise that Napa residents receive a 10% locals' discount in the restaurant. Our server mostly did a nice job; I downgraded the service to fair only because of the mixup by the hostess. So, all in all, a good place for a casual family meal, with a low enough noise level that you can carry on a conversation. Just double check your reservation with the restaurant before you arrive!
nothing unique or memorable. average hotel offerings. cheese plate was set down without offering to describe the cheeses- bread crustini's were overly crusty or stale. the soup was fine but the two "different salads" we ordered (garden and chicken macho) were the exact same salads except for a parboiled chicken in the larger salad. will due in a pinch if you do not want to travel down the road to a nicer restaurant. service was attentive.
Little ambiance here - like eating in the hotel entrance hall. Decent food after a long drive - not for a lovely evening out.
Family brunch was delightful in the heated outdoor patio.
The food is different, delicious and a great find in a quiet neighborhood in Napa, away from the hustle and bustle of downtown. Loved the lamb tacos and lamb meatballs, something you don't find most anywhere else. The fries and onion rings were pretty good too! Enjoyed our dinner so much, we went back for breakfast the next morning!
We loved the lettuce cups - they are one of our favorites but the ribs that used to be another favorite had changed and we were disappointed. The garbanzo bean fries are also delicious.
