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.
Surpassed my expectations. Am a local and made reservations at last moment.. Food and service was great. Felt special and grandson loved it!! Will go again next year!!!!
The food was delicious. However, our dozen oysters were actually only eleven. We called this to the attention of a server and eventually, after our main course was served, two additional oysters were delivered to us--we were four at the table. My husband's steak was only half the thickness of my son's although they both ordered the exact same thing. It should have been a rib eye and my son's was, but my husband's wa not. The manager was dismissive and not at all helpful, until my daughter-in-law, a hotel and reataurant professional, spoke with him away from the table. I must add, however, that our wait staff were very attentive and helpful. We feel this restaurant suffers from not a high priority on customer satisfaction.
Four of us where there for Sunday Brunch. Not much of a selection. The Bloody Mary was lacking something; It did not wow me. The room was pretty empty and I can see why. On the up side, It's a beautiful place and has a lot of potential. I would go back to try a regular lunch menu sometime.
Enjoyed breakfast and dinner. Location on the lobby put us in a place where we could listen to the jazz band.
after wine tasting with the husband valentines weekend, we were able to check in to our hotel & know we had a wonderful dinner waiting for us downstairs. the food was delicious, the service was impeccable and the atmosphere was perfect!
The only complaint to an otherwise good meal was that the lunch took over 2 hours for three people.....for LUNCH!!!! We even had to ask to get our meal and the resturant hardly had anyone in it. We were not impressed with the service.
Love the lighted menus! Several appealing menu selections & the food was very good! Service was good, attentive. Cannot wait to come back & dine outside this summer!!
Had a wonderful traditional Thanksgibing turkey dinner. This was a return holiday lunch after experiencing fabulous food, service, and hospitality last Christmas. Very nice that they offer a special holiday menu AND also allow orders from their regular memu. Plan to go again for Christmas!!
Located right in the front lobby of hotel. Good vibes and good food.
We made reservations at VINeleven because we were staying at the hotel and attending an event there that evening, and it just seemed it would be more convenient. Although we had concerns about "hotel dining" those were completely laid to rest once seated. The food is impressive. All prepared in-house and many ingredients are grown in the hotel's garden! Even better, the prices were very reasonable. Food quality was top notch. I had the roasted beet and cara-cara orange salad and the pork chop. AMAZING! Fabulous blending of flavors and beautiful presentation. Can't remember what hubby had, but we would DEFINITELY eat there again for dinner or lunch.
Small menu but many great and unique choices. Hard to decide because there was several menu items we wanted to try. Everything we ordered tasted great. Highly recommend the Chorizo Burger and the Tator Tots. Great cocktails. Our server was very friendly and attentive. Will be a great place to dine pool side this summer and try what we did not this visit!
We had a wonderful meal here this afternoon. The ribs were fabulous and the bbq sauce is especially good. The Five Dot Ranch cheeseburger was delicious and the chickpea fries are very yummy. Our server was very attentive and all the staff was friendly and helpful. And to top off our afternoon, I left my cellphone at the table when we left and the manager actually RAN out to the parking lot and caught us just as we were getting into our car. That is really exceptional service in my eyes!
terrible service. also had to wait a long time for someone to know i was there before being greeted and seated, and was given a less than desirable table when a more desirable table was available. the wait staff didn't seem to know who was responsible for which table, causing confusion for myself and other diners. my food was served differently than listed on the menu, and when brought to their attention, it took n inordinate amount of time to correct. menu taken after ordering an appetizer and no main course was offered when i said i was still deciding. instead, dessert was offered, and it too was poor and served differently than listed. definitely not worth a visit.
We traveled from out of the area to meet family in Napa and had a wonderful Christmas Day dinner at VINeleven. The entire staff was very welcoming, and in fact the chef made a special large salad that was not even on the menu to accomodate the dietary needs of one of our guests. It was so nice and enjoyable to spend the afternoon relaxing in the well decorated restaurant and lounge area. We were not rushed and easily able to hear the conversations at our table without lots of excess restaurant sounds interferring. We enjoyed a nice glass of wine, the wonderful meals, and had great service. I would definitely recommend VINeleven for any holiday gathering.
We had Thanksgiving Dinner for 6 there and we were welcomed with open arms and the service was outstanding, very, VERY friendly. We were not rushed, very relaxed setting, a couple of the boys asked for "seconds" on the turkey, dressing and gravy and their request was happily received and delivered. We were delighted with the whole experience. Plus I didn't have to clean the kitchen! We were treated like family. We really were. The food, the service was great. It really was. Lots of fun. Thank you!!!
Ended up here our first night in Napa while staying at the Marriott. We almostget expected toreduction be disappointed but its much better than most hotel bars/restaurants. As others have noted, the one detractor from the ambiance is that there's no real separation from the hotel lobby. But the wine list was good and so was the food, with a few creative items on the menu. I don't know that id insist someone go out of there way to eat here, but its a solid choice if you're staying at the hotel.
This has been a favorite restaurant for us as we live nearby and the food is consistently very good and the service is usually very good as well. We had a late breakfast this morning and the restaurant was pretty busy. Our server was very pleasant but appeared to be spread pretty thin. Other than getting our coffee right away, the rest of the service was very slow. One member of our party ordered a cocktail and had to go the bar and pick it up himself after a pretty long wait. The food took longer than normal to arrive although the food was excellent and hot so perhaps the kitchen was backed up. The bill took awhile to arrive after our meal and the payment took too long to be picked up. I think Vineleven needs more staff.
Adequate, but in NapaValley this is not a contender for foodies. Best feature is convenience if you are staying at the Marriott and don't have independent ground transportation.
My husband and I had a wonderful meal. The staff at VINeleven were friendly and the service was outstanding. The manager, Joe, greeted us upon our arrival and sat us at a nice table. He recommended the sliders. I took his recommendation. The sliders were so delicious and filling. I thoroughly enjoyed my lunch. My husband ordered the King Salmon. It was cooked to perfection. We will highly recommend VINeleven to all of our friends and family. Thank you for the excellent service.
I had one of the most memorable lunch dates ever. My lady friend was greatly impressed, and I was rewarded with her beautiful smile. Thanks Javier!
Family birthday dinner on a Saturday evening turned out a hit! Our waitstaff was so friendly and helpful. The entrees were innovative and delicious, as was the wine.
The restaurant/bar is open to the lobby area but there are nice booths at the far side that looked cozy.
The food was good. The lettuce wraps were fantastic. Justin offered excellent service. However, very noisy. Too open of a concept for me.
My friends and I were in and out in an hour for lunch. Highly recommend this restaurant. GREAT food and GREAT service!
Excellent service and perfect portion sizing from the Chef. Just a short walk from home. We'll be back.
We had a group of 8 gals celebrating August birthdays. Everyone found something on the menu they loved. The food was great. The service very attentive.
We have wonderful experiences here in the past but this time we had 7 people plus a baby and it took an extremely long time for us to get our food. Our server was very nice but seemed to be spread pretty thin. The food received mixed reviews from our group. Some people loved the food especially the ribs, the lettuce wraps and the chickpea fries. But our hamburger eaters felt the meat was a little overcooked for "medium". And one person had the chicken salad and said it was pretty light on the chicken. We do normally love this restaurant and will definitely be back.
Both times I dined here I had to ask several times for them to note that I had a reservation thru open table. I still did not get credit for one visit. Service was very slow, even though they were not busy.
Good quiet and nice restaurant. Food good.
I had a lovely rib-eye. Everything we had was outstanding.
Food was excellent! Small menu but great choices with wide price range.
