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
Very accommodating of gluten free guest. Make a reservation for the lovely patio seatings - AMAZING experience all-around. Attentive service, good view, great food, come here for Brunch! Food was prepared to technical perfection but i felt they could've been more imaginative/creative with their menu rather than playing it "safe." The only completely mind-blowing dish in terms of creativity was the potato gnocchi w/ parmesan nage. You MUST order this if you can! This is THEEE best brunch EVER.
Auberge is very hidden and not easy to find if phone GPS doesn't work (which it didn't) so we missed the sunset but still caught a bit of the horizon and loved every minute of dining outside on the upper deck. The food was outstanding; sommelier could have been a bit more helpful; key lime dessert spectacular. Be sure to look at the night sky upon departure. Haven't seen a sky like that for a very long time.
A lovely restaurant in a lovely location. We enjoyed a pretty view over Napa Valley as we ate nicely prepared dishes with excellent choices of flavors. We especially liked the risotto and the foie gras was excellent with the lemon mousse. Not something I'd expect to go well! The prices for lunch were reasonable and we left very satisfied.
How Far We Have Fallen...
We used to love this place, but honestly there are so many better options in Napa now. They have failed to keep up with the times. It feels like you are walking back into 1985 in there and it has no vibe.
Food: Over-engineered without taste and very over-priced. We had the Petrale Sole and Filet and they were both very marginal. No taste and tiny portions. Had the Gnocchi for a starter and got 3 pieces of pasta with foam...All for $120 per person...
Service: Uninspired...our waitress was going through the motions. Not rude, but not engaged. Like someone who has done this too long. Almost like that flight attendant that doesn't care anymore?
Atmosphere: Dead with no activity. Felt like I was in my grandparents retirement community...
Overall: Thumbs down.
Excellent customer service by the entire staff of Auberge du Soleil to celebrate my 60th birthday. One of their servers, Victor provided exceptional service for our dining experience and offer quality wineries nearby to compliment our day in Napa. Our food, 3-course meals were cooked to perfect and very tasty for 3 of us while enjoying the scenic view of Napa Valley. We recommend to dine at the exterior "wrap around deck" for anyone's special event. They did a fantastic job for us and our daughter (future generation) to keep coming back to this restaurant!
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!
Exceptional views with great food. We enjoyed breakfast in the main dining room right next to the fireplace. The dining room is well appointed, romantic with an exceptional view of Napa Valley. The breakfast menu was wonderful with a wide variety of traditional breakfast fare plus delicious offerings unique to Auberge. Wait staff is attentive and friendly and made our meal very enjoyable. The view alone is worth the trip, but the food didn't disappoint. If you are a first timer to Napa this is a MUST.
The view from the terrace is gorgeous and the food was very very good (the lobster omelette and creme fraiche sorbet stood out) and a fair value for the ambience. Make sure you eat lunch/brunch on the porch to acquire the full experience. This is a must visit for anyone passing through Napa.
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.
