About Auberge du Soleil
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.
Summer Dinner reservations available online 5:30-6:00 and 8:00-9:00 PM. All online reservations between Apr 1-Nov 30 are confirmed outside on the terrace, weather permitting. *Please review the OpenTable confirmation email for important details regarding your reservation*

Amazing view the service was very good was good expected to be exceptional my nice order the rissotto it tasted like rice pudding for the price? we expected to be better. overall experience was great will definitely beback

Over the years I have watched Auberge grow and enhance their property with art and lovely grounds...and it is indeed breathtaking if only for the view from their deck. However, I was shocked at the decline in the level of service at this last visit which is the first time it has happened so I am hoping it was a fluke. It took 30 minutes just to order and then another 20-30 minutes to receive the first course and then a long time for the main course to arrive. The thing is that they were not all that busy for lunch which is the meal that we reserved. It looks like they are catering to larger groups and special events going on rather than individuals meeting there for lunch.
We also felt pressure to choose the pricier French wines rather than the local Valley wineries which I find disappointing.

Beautiful Location, Great Evening, Not a Great Hostess
My husband and I ate here on a Monday night. We showed up an hour early and were shown to the bar to wait. The bar is very nice we didn't expect to spend the entire hour there waiting. They came to get us at our time and the restaurant was empty except for six couples. I think the hostess forgot about us. This is my only issue with the restaurant. If people show up early, and you have tables open, seat them!!
Enough about that. We were given a table with a beautiful view, our waiter was great--very attentive and informative but not hovering, and the food was wonderful. We did the three course dinners. The way the menu is designed, there is so much flexibility. It was a great evening.

on our first scenic journey together, my partner and I just drove around Oregon and California . we ended up in Napa, and of course could not eat at the French Laundry since we were traveling on the fly. but we were in luck and were able to get a table at Auberge du Soleil. The portions are intelligent, the flavors paired perfectly, the presentation artful and pleasing, and best of all it tasted great! We were so pleased, gosh I wish I lived closer. What a great place to dine!!! Outstanding.

We were very exited to try this place but honestly we found it more on the average side. Our waiter and the staff were very nice, not very personable but professional and business like. We tend to like a more friendly environment but overall they were sweet and to the point. We had a beautiful seat on the deck and the scenery is just breathtaking. We had very high expectations for this place but the food was okay, some parts tasty and fresh but just okay. My husband had a pasta dish which he found bland and stuck together. I had the duck dish, which was a beautiful cut of duck but also a little bland. Unfortunately out heat warmer was also broken above us so that made dinner a little uncomfortable once it got cooler but overall we had a nice experience but nothing to write home about. We would go back to enjoy wine on the deck but would skip their food options for another spot with more flavor.

Outstanding food and service made for a wonderful special occasion. Great selections on the menu and impressive presentation. Very enjoyable and relaxing experience with a beautiful view. Meal was served at the perfect pace - no waiting but no rush. Thank you

Having been at French laundry the night before, dinner was very good but service was not up to par. From the time we arrived and had to wait in the bar with marginal service, to dinner with servers who were not thrilled about being there. Nobody was smiling or enjoying themselves. Dinner and the view is well worth the visit!!

It was one of the best meals I have eaten in my life!
All the food was cooked to perfection. Some stand out dishes were the foie gras paired with Concord grapes, grilled octopus (butter knife went right through it), liberty farm duck, and peanut croquant (a must for dessert).
The service was second to none. They had great recommendations, were well informed, and was super attentive. Everyone here also seems to know how to frame a photo well.
The cherry on top is the view that you get. I don't think you can get a better view in the Napa Valley. It was just stunning. Out of everywhere we went in Napa, this was by far the standout restaurant.
We were here celebrating our honeymoon and I could not have pictured a better meal. Definitely recommended for a special occasion.

Beautiful view, beautiful food, and friendly service—this place is a real standout. We celebrated a birthday here and tried their weekend brunch three course menu. Every dish was delicious and beautifully plated. But the view is the real winner here—you'll get an uninterrupted, 180 degree view of the valley and the distant mountain range. That alone is worth the drive up!

Beautiful setting expensive dinner so we save our visit for a special occasion, and it was ruined with the wedding that was also at Auberge. Guys were screaming n hooting, while we are trying to eat and talk, was terrible, sounded like we were on the balcony of a frat party :((

After getting rave reviews from our friends we decided to try Auberge. Pretty pricey and was expecting an A + meal.
The food was average. Our main course came out lukewarm. There was wedding below us on the lower terrace and they were so noisy.
The view was breathtaking but not worth the drive or money.
Won't go back.

Absolutely terrific experience. If you are ever in Napa Valley you must come here for the Sunday Brunch.
Food, Service and View are outstanding! Plenty of choices on Menu and all Great. Great cocktails and wine choices and again the Atmosphere can not be better. Go!

I had a wonderful experience last weekend of September here, Auberge du Soleil. I really wanted to stay here but only lunch. It was great food and wine list. Staff are all very nice and friendly. I love to eat at the patio!

It was our first visit to Auberge du Soleil. Our first mistake was booking too late, even though it was the earliest reservation we could get. I suggest arriving long before dark to enjoy the stunning view.
Our waiter was phenomenal as was the food. The portions are not large but absolutely perfect. The prices are not for the faint of heart.
We are glad we went. For us, it will be a once in a lifetime experience.

My fiancé and I thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Auberge du Soleil, it was one of the best dining experiences we had in the Napa Valley during our week long trip! We will definitely be back to enjoy it again the next time we're in the area!

My sister visiting from Paris wanted to eat among vineyards. She loved the place and so did I.
Beautiful settings and quiet place even though it was busy.
Excellent service and mostly great food.
The Sauteed Foie Gras was not a one star micheling guide worthy, served raw inside and full of nerves. It was hard to believe that a French Chef in a state where Foie Gras is so controversial would serve such an item.
It was promptly removed from the bill and our waiter give me an extra "splash" of wine in my glass. Nicely done.

A truly outstanding view, and really excellent personable service. However, the food itself is a mixed bag, spanning the range from superb to mediocre; depending on your luck you could have a great meal here, or an extremely forgettable -but very expensive- one. Particularly disappointing was the kurobuta pork chop, which was tragically overcooked and grey to the core. One of our desserts was sublime, the other disappointing. Foie gras was excellent, but oysters were small and forgettable. Nevertheless, the setting is fantastic, and overall we weren't disappointed to have come -- but it could have been outstanding if the calibre and consistency of the food had only lived up to the view, and to the price.

I have to admit, we walked in for lunch and I immediately thought that our obnoxious group of 5 was going to be "that group" after already doing a few wine tastings. They seated us outside overlooking that fabulous view and we were all immediately in awe. It was absolutely breathtaking.
We were a little intimidated by the menu at first - it was a very small menu that seemed more suitable for dinner rather than lunch. However, we were all VERY satisfied with our meals. The popular meals in the group were the short ribs (which were so tender that they fell off the fork) and the risotto. In addition, our server recommended fantastic wines to pair with each dish.
I would definitely recommend for lunch or an early dinner (don't want to miss out on that view!)
