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 May 1-Oct 31 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

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.

Third time visiting Auberge. This time it was very disappointing. Server spoke very fast, hard to understand. She was rushing us through dinner. I ordered the prime filet pave as my third course, it turn out to be chewy, certainly not prime. My friend ordered the pasta as her main course, it had no flavor and had to be sent back. Totally over priced for the quality of the food. Bill was $1,800.00 for 7 people.

The service was great and the presentation of the food was beautiful. Taste was hit or miss for each of the guests at the table. Each of us had plates that were delicious and each of us had plates that were average.
Overall, disappointing. We arrived early ...
Overall, disappointing. We arrived early for our brunch reservation and was not accommodated a minute early. No one person made us feel particularly welcome. During our wait, we entertained the bar with a couple starters and a bottle of champagne which we enjoyed. The ambience here was ok. While the view is very nice, there are views of this magnitude all over the valley. The egg portion of the lobster omelette was rubbery, hardly edible, even seeming precooked, folded over the filling just prior to serving. The potatoes served alongside were not fresh or crisp. The sourdough bread was very tasty, as well as three different desserts we sampled. We also enjoyed nice french press coffee. Unfortunately, not likely to return, or recommend. Certainly NOT worthy of a one (1) star Michelin rating.

We ate dinner at Auberge Du Soleil as part of a pre-anniversary trip to Napa. While we had heard about Auberge for years this was our first opportunity to dine there. All aspects of the meal were outstanding, including the menu items we ordered and a few special treats sent out by the chef. Our server (Michael) and the wine steward ((Elizabeth) were knowledgeable, helpful and very pleasant. Do get there before sunset if you can. Few can afford Auberge frequently, but make a pin of getting there whenever you have the chance.

We come every year, it is an amazing place to have a meal, and the menu is truly exceptional. You can choose any 3 or 4 courses you wish, from a vibrant list of choices. My wife and I each opt for 4 and never overlap, so every time I taste 8 dishes, and I have never had a bad bite.

Fabulous day on the terrace! The quail salad was outstanding. Lobster salad was also good 9quail better). Outstanding wine list - many you can obtain by the glass alone. Service was impeccable. Well worth the visit if you are in Napa/Rutherford.

The restaurant is trading on it's reputation. The menu is time warp, boring and the food mediocre. The prices are sky high however. My husband ordered a Marguerita and instead of asking if he wanted a "signature" version, the waiter just brought it. It tasted like whisky. I complained and it was changed. That should not have happened in the first place. The food experience doesn't warrant a second visit.

Auberge Du Soleil is a "must experience" for Napa. The view from the balcony is breathtaking and not to be missed. The food is excellent - well prepared and well presented, although serving size is small and prices are large. Overall, the experience was worth the price for a special occasion. We will never forget the wonderful lunch we shared at Auberge du Soleil and every visitor to the area should experience the view at least once.

This was a return visit and we were not nearly as impressed as the other visit. The view and ambiance is great but given their even increasing prices we felt the food quality had slipped a notch or two. Bacon wrapped veal overcooked and
Risotto's temperature was lukewarm. Wished we had a more positive experience.

We were visiting Napa for our anniversary and when I came across this restaurant with the backdrop/view it offered, we had to eat there. The view was the most incredible I've probably experienced, and the service and food was absolutely amazing. It was all around an unforgettable experience.
