About Auberge du Soleil
Rutherford, CA 94573
Auberge du Soleil Restaurant began in 1981 nestled on 33 acres overlooking the lush vines of the Napa Valley. The cuisine has evolved with a wine country theme where innovative menus inspired by the bounty of the vine are paired with food in ways that delight and inspire longtime devotees. The Bistro & Bar is ideal for sipping wine at sunset on the terrace, a casual meal al fresco, or a nightcap by the fireplace. The Restaurant presents luxury at its finest while overlooking some of Napa's most renowned vineyards. Offering more that 40 of the Valley’s finest wines by the glass and boasting a cellar of nearly 17,000 wines, our guests can enjoy a full sensory experience of the California wine country.

The food was outstanding, and with a very knowledgeable server who was able to produce a vegetarian/pescatarian tasting menu version from the main menu, our experience was elevated to stellar! Compliments to the chef & entire staff - these foodies were highly impressed!

We rode bikes up the hill to experience this restaurant on the recommendation of a friend. The ride was really tough but the food and the view were absolutely worth it. Highly recommend for anyone visiting napa valley

My wife and I celebrated our 3rd Anniversary at Auberge du Soleil. The experience was a success on all levels: Food, Service and Ambience. The food was outstanding, particularly the Lamb Loin with Moroccan spices. Our server was very attentive and tended to our every need. We particularly enjoyed the quiet ambience. Unlike other restaurants, there were no noisy children to spoil the atmosphere.

Our first experience here was spectacular. Great food, ambience, and service. This last visit was a bit off. Young, drunk, loud female in bar before dinner while we were waiting for our reservation, and then in the dining room a party of seven young loud 20 somethings were actually playing drinking games at the table close to us. A bit disappointing that a restaurant of this stature would tolerate such inappropriate behavior.

Beautiful serene restaurant in Napa Valley. Wonderful food with great taste and presentation. Marvelous view overlooking the valley. Attentive service. While I was there on Tuesday, Jan 31 they was working going on below the restaurant. It would have been nice to have some background music to block out the noise. Excellent selection of vegetarian items that were highlighted on menu with check marks.

I've been to Auberge a few times. Excellent location with a gorgeous view. Their staff is very attentive. Their food is mostly excellent, but last time I went there the soup was very salty and the chicken was very bland. I would recommend their gnocchi, foie gras, and desserts. Excellent wine menu. Very lovely place to dine for a special occasion.

Terrific service. Great shrimp salad. Wonderful leek soup w/ oyster garnish. My husband's tuna dish was a bit off on the composition. Not that it wasn't good and prepared properly just odd choice of the other ingredients. Beautiful view and patio heaters kept us comfortable despite a chill in the air. Don't miss it if you can afford it!

Made our annual Napa restaurant week pilgrimage for the fixed price lunch at Auberge. Risotto was outstanding and the apple pie desert amazing. Market salad underwhelmed but the view from our table on the terrace made up for it. House Sauvignon Blanc was decent and reasonably priced. Service was impeccable as you would expect from a Michelin starred restaurant.

Our meal was amazing because of so many reasons! The service and attention to detail were fabulous and spot on. The dinner options and drink menu were plentiful and the wine list beyond your wildest dreams. Wonderful place!

This was one of the best meals I have ever had. The food was prepared as though each item was a work of art. Beautiful to look at, the smells and tastes outpaced the visual aspects. Simply outstanding experience. It is not an inexpensive meal, but if you have the resources, this is a "bucket list meal" not to be missed.

This was my first dinner for the New Year and it was a great way to start 2017. The food here did not disappoint. The menu was fantastic and the flavors all complement each other. Would definitely be back the next time I'm in Napa.

At the end of a quiet New Year’s Day, we dined at Auberge du Soleil. It is still as elegant as ever. The room is gorgeous and overlooks the Napa Valley, although it was dark and all we could see were lights twinkling in the distance. The dinner starts with the champagne cart, from which we selected 2 glasses of Pommery. The menu is either three or four courses, priced according to the number of courses. For some reason, we thought we were hungry, so we had four courses, which proved to be too much. Nevertheless, the food was quite good, if a bit rich. We loved the chestnut soup, the bacon wrapped veal and the apple cider doughnuts. We had a nice bottle of Burgundy to go with the meal. The luxury is not cheap, and our bar bill was half of the total. We walked out, quite full, having enjoyed the experience, even if our wallet was significantly lighter.

Our lunch at the Auberge was delightful. We were lucky to have an excellent table on the terrace offering gorgeous views on a beautiful sunny day. Every course was delicious and the service was impeccable. We could not recommend this restaurant more highly.

The food quality was very good. Service was not up to par for this level of restaurant and price.
The tables are too cramped, may be OK for a lesser type of restaurant but not compatible with high end place like this.
Check out high end restaurant like Gary Danko in San Francisco if you want an example to see what I meant.

The restaurant was really off this night. The timing was inconsistent. Drinks took a long time. We had to wait to have our wine opened. I had to ask twice and after our meal was already served. The wait staff was not warm and attentive as you would expect from a restaurant of this caliber. Some of the food was overcooked. I have had fantastic lunches here with friends and colleagues before but I will probably not go back again.
