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*

Auberge du Soleil Ratings and Reviews
Came here on our 5 year wedding anniversary. Parking can be a little confusing as there is very little to no signage. It appears Valet is the only option? Food was magnificent- caviar was a little overpriced, but the Japanese Wagyu A5 beef was worth it. Outdoor seating is wonderful, albeit you may get some mosquito bites (yeah, we know, it is the outdoors). If you're worried about that, just ask for a table inside. We have eaten at Bouchon and the French Laundry, quite hard to pick a favorite but this restaurant comes out slightly ahead of the rest. All in all, would highly recommend.
Fabulous tasting menu with wine-selection. Plenty of food and a knowledgeable sommelier. Small intimate dining room and a lovely porch. Servers very friendly and I would be hard-pressed to single out a single dish as the "best". Simply a gorgeous spot with food to match. Have a drink on the veranda first, overlooking the Napa Valley... particularly at sunset!
Was very much looking forward to our dinner here while on a trip to Sonoma, and upon arriving the location, venue and views did not disappoint. However, for my first trip to California, I found the menu to be challenging and complex, and the service to be pretentious and forced. There was a definite agenda to upsell what they wanted to serve for the evening and the overhearing of the same script to other tables nearby spoiled the illusion that the waitress had been genuinely connecting with us during our interaction. Overall the views were super, and the food was very good, but I think the hype of the place and the palpable stuffiness was a turnoff at least for me. Nice for a special occasion.
Everything at the restaurant was great but one of the customers is very disgusting. I went to the restaurant on June 4th around noon for brunch. In front of my table, there was a group of 8 adults and 3 kids who were very loud and disgusting. Believe it or not? There was a lady in that group changed the diaper for her baby on the floor next to her table!!! I have never seen anything like this before in my life. I am not sure if the waiter saw what she did but there were at least 3 tables next to me saw this appropriate manner. Although it wasn't the restaurant's fault, but I definite don't go back. I really hope one of the customers in this group will see my message and stop doing this disgusting behavior in other restaurants. Please stop ruin other people's businesses and dine at home.
We'd not been to Auberge d Soleil for over 30 years, and decided with family coming to town from NYC that it was the perfect place to meet. Halfway between their arrival point (Sacramento) and our home in Sonoma County. It proved to be everything we'd remembered and more.
The setting is superb, food is over the top and the service is attentive without being 'in your face'.
There are very few venues in the world like this one. Enjoy.
The good- the views are amazing.
The bad- got our special occasion wrong by two decades too long. The plate said 25 years instead of 5 years and the waitress was surprised when we pointed this out.
The ugly- despite my allergy to shrimp and lobster (which I re-emphasized), believe there was a dish that had a paste that had one or both of the ingredients and had horrible GI distress that night. Also, the fish dish was so spicy that we couldn't eat it.
I guess the views bring people in. Food needs a major upgrade as does staff training.
Everything from start to finish was exceptional. Went here for our 10 yr wedding anniversary dinner and we each chose the 4-course meal. It was probably the most expensive meal we've ever had, but the whole experience was worth it. Food was delicious with good sized portions ... and the view - wow, very picturesque.
One goes to AUBERGE du SOLEIL not only for the view but for the FOOD. I have had the opportunity to dine here on multiple occasions (I live in Richmond Va) and I have NEVER been disappointed. From the front door to the table is an experience in its self. The octopus, the lamb and the desserts are "to die for". Yes--it is expensive, but at AUBERGE du SOLEIL, YOU get what you pay for!!!
