St. Francis Winery & Vineyards Ratings and Reviews
A "must do" wine and dining experience when visiting wine country! Always excellent, the menu and wines change just enough to make repeat visits well worth it. Staff are friendly, knowledgeable and go that extra step. A great experience for the newbie to seasoned foodie.
Without a doubt one of the best meals and wine experiences you'll ever have. Brought 4 friends to try the wine and food pairing and they are foodies and know wine well. They were so impressed with the food, the setting, the entire experience. We will go back again and again.
Although not technically a restaurant, St. Francis Winery and their executive chef Bryan Jones deliver like any 5 star I've ever eaten at. Local, fresh foods prepared in unusual, delicious ways. Paired with the excellent St. Francis wines, this is a not-to-be-missed event when in Sonoma Valley.
Fabulous views of the mountains, inventive, creative, peel-executed tasting menu that was paired perfectly with delicious wines.
The staff are knowledgeable, friendly and accommodating.
We come here at least two times a year!
Thank you to all of the staff at St. Francis for making our visit so memorable.
Our group of six had an absolutely wonderful experience! To say that the food and wine pairing, service, and setting were superb would be an understatement. The staff was incredibly informative and friendly, and the food was unique and delicious. My husband has several dietary restrictions, and they were unbelievably thoughtful in ensuring that his needs were met (even contacting us several times prior to our reservation to be sure they had it right). He was concerned that his culinary experience might be compromised, and it was not at ALL. I HIGHLY recommend this place for a truly special time.
Have attended several tines. Today the staff seemed robot with the script, then walk away.
All about the long tall pour for effect. Not impressive, as the wine is mostly bubbles in the bottle in the beginning. Any good wine, I prefer to smell, taste, swirl open, smell and taste.
At a Somm or blind wine tasting, is wine poured long and tall with bubbles at the end?
Staff appeared tired and we were there at 11AM.
Should your 3 time choices throughout the day have a mix of wines and/or food???
The last two I attended were 180 degrees from today in enthusiasm. Not as engaging, too robotic. One of my group did purchase wine to ship; however, I did not, given it would have heated up in my vehicle for the day.
Cannot beat the food menu, and your Sous Chef made an appreciative appearance. He was definitely engaging with the group. Asked about how often the menu is changed; however, have not seen a recent change in any course.
A wonderful wine and food pairing. On advice from friends, we were fortunate to get a reservation Saturday at 11:00 and trekked there from Sacramento...it was worth the trip. Beautiful, drive, beautiful location, and the wine and food was par-exellance! Who would have thought nettles would be tasty! Everything was wonderfully presented and professionally presented. Would highly recommend.
This was our second opportunity to enjoy St. Francis incredible food and wine pairing, and they definitely do not disappointment. As a diner with Celiac disease as well as lactose intolerance, I was well cared for and felt included. I even noticed my experience being slightly different than fellow diners, which was insightful! We have already returned for a second visit, thus we highly encourage others to return as well!
Excellent service and ambiance. The food and wine pairings were explained well, and the choices were delicious. St Francis wines speak for themselves, but the food served was a wonderful addition.
The service was first rate. Everyone was very friendly and professional. I'd love to go back again
A friend was visiting from the East Coast and I wanted to treat her to a very special wine tasting. This was that and more. The pairings were amazing and it was a treat to hear from the Chef about his creative process and how he selected the pairings. From the very first pairing, looking out at the beautiful vineyard view, I knew that the St. Francis was a good choice.
St Francis was recommended to us by a friend back home. We are from Chicago and we're on a little vacation before we get married later this year. All I can say is the food and wine pairing was one of the best experiences of our whole entire trip!!! The way the chef creates these different dishes to be paired with the different wines at St. Francis truly is a gift. The food was amazing. The wine was amazing. The service was amazing. I highly recommended St. Francis to any and all traveling to wine country.
The chef prepared an excellent range of dishes, which were inspired by and well complemented by the St. Francis Artisan Collection wines. The servers were knowledgeable and affable. The setting is beautiful. A thoroughly enjoyable afternoon. Highly recommended
Our second visit, and as good as the first. There are an increasing number of food/wine pairings available in the area, but for us this still sets the standard. The food is exquisite and the pairings impeccable. Wonderful setting with skilled service in a relaxed atmosphere. Highly recommend.
We decided to take my in laws to St.Francis winery for the lunch wine pairing tasting menu while they were here visiting. It was exquisite. I didn't expect the table layout, which was two semicircular tables seating 8 on each side (so you essentially sit in a big circle with 16 people). The servers discussed the food in each course, and each wine selection as it was presented. I found I loved the meal, and I rarely (even when presented with exquisite food) am as mindful about my eating experience as I was during that meal. We had a jolly group of fellow diners so the social aspect was not lacking, but also not so demanding you couldn't immerse yourself in the sensations of the food and wine. Our party unanimously agreed it was an unabashed success.
Food and wine pairing at St. Francis winery was one of the highlights of our trip. It was perfect from beginning to end. Every wine was excellent and paired perfectly with each dish. The host was very informative and the service was impeccable. It was very reasonably priced for everything that was included. Recommend highly.
The winery has a circular 16 seat table so the meal is communal. Series of excellent small plates with very good pairings from the winery. Chef will accommodate vegetarian, pescaterian, etc. Options with advance notice. Friendly staff. Excellent value. Very good service. The drawbacks are the place is a bit touristy and I could do without the running commentary from the servers. The wines served were very nice but were a little pricey for the quality; $50/bottle goes a long way in Sonoma.
