St. Francis Winery & Vineyards Ratings and Reviews
What a lovely experience. The food was ...
What a lovely experience. The food was all beautifully executed and the wine pairings all made sense to me. I even enjoyed the white port served with dessert, much to my surprise. I wasn't expecting to be so pleasantly full from a food/wine pairing experience and that was also a nice surprise. The staff was knowledgeable and genuinely friendly yet professional. We enjoyed all the wines and went home with 6 bottles which probably won't last a month before we polish them off.

As usual the wine and food pairings were outstanding. I always take my out of town guests to St. Francis Winery. Its not just that the is the best in the area, its also a beautiful location well wortht the drive. My friends were impressed.

We attended the food and wine pairing. Aside from being an average wine and food pairing, we were told by Renee while paying for our lunch and wine that we should visit the Carneros Winery because we could do a complimentary tasting due to our membership at Sequoia Grove/St. Francis. Turns out this was an error on her part and not true. It was very embarrassing and $80 plus dollars later. St. Francis should better train their staff. $178 for their food pairing and 2 mediocre bottles of chardonnay, plus having to pay an additional $80+ at Carneros due to their mistake, I would definitely not recommend.

St. Francis was rated as one of the best restaurants in the country by Open Table. We booked the 3pm food and wine pairing for this reason. My wife and I had high expectations and the experience met and exceeded those expectations. Great food, great wine, beautiful location. Highly recommended.

A must stop when in Sonoma County for wine and food pairing. The cost is minimal for what you receive: outstanding wine and excellent food that are larger, small plates. This isn't your typical little nibble you get with most food and wine pairings.

We really enjoyed the wine and food pairing. We learned so much about the wine and winery. The food was unique and delicious. We would definitely recommend this experience for all who love good wine and good food. The two ladies who explained the various pairings were funny and knowledgeable. We met the chef and were able to have all our questions answered about the preparation of the food. This was an excellent experience. We will do it again.

Hosts were nice but didn't really introduce the winery enough. Maybe this would be something discussed more in a wine tour than the pairing. Not very classy participants beside me dampened the experience. Wines were decent but nothing blew me away. Food was very good except the panna cotta dessert which was nothing special. I still would highly recommend this experience given the very fair price for the pairing. I think the food portions were generous. Overall, it was a lovely meal and experience.

This was our fourth time attending St. Francis's food/wine pairing, and as before, was exceptional. This event is consistantly top-notch. From the appetizer to dessert, the pairing of the exquisitely prepared food along with the high-end wine choices was perfect. The setting is beautiful and this is an event that should not be missed. My husband and I are looking forward to our next visit to Sonoma to attend the pairing once again.

The Wine Pairing group experience was fun, educational and very enjoyable for the 16 people who attended the event. Unique opportunity to visit with a renowned Chef about his recipes and wine choice.
This could have been a "stuffy" affair, but the staff made everyone feel welcomed and relaxed as they walked us through the wine experience.
We're already looking forward to making the trip again next year and to visiting St. Francis.

We attended a 1pm Food and Wine Pairing session along with 10 other visitors. It was wonderful! Every dish was fabulous and, of course, was specially prepared to accompany each wine. Every offering was introduced and enthusiastically explained by our knowledgable and charming hostess. The Chef came out to answer questions and was warmly applauded by all. This will be our new "gift" to celebrate occasions with friends!

I live across the street from St. Francis Winery and have attended this wine and food pairing a number of times. It never disappoints. Important to know the seating is only 16 people, so the experience is very intimate.

Consistently amazing experience! We take friends and family from out of town fairly frequently and have never been disappointed. The presentation is superb; ceiling to floor arched windows overlooking vineyards and mountains . . . the exquisitely ornate, circular dining table seats only 16 people and seems designed for negotiating an international treaty. The chef's plates are works of art and the wine pairings are masterpieces. The pace is leisurely, the staff is warm and friendly and the experience unforgettable!

We've done a few pairing events but this one is a must ! The wines were really good alone, but pared perfectly w/ the food and became even better. We met fun people from all over the country, a beautiful setting , will definitely do again.

This is by far my favorite place in Napa Valley! The wine and food pairing was the experience of a lifetime! It seriously blew my mind! My husband is an extremely picky eater and he thoroughly enjoyed everything -including food that he generally avoids (beets, cheese, and fish). We live in Florida, and we've already talked about when we can get back out to California to experience St. Francis again! The grounds are also absolutely gorgeous. This place has it all. If you are debating whether to go here- You have to do it! It's worth it to plan your entire trip around it- it's that amazing!

This was a special winery food and wine pairing menu.
The pairings were superb and we felt we got great value from the offerings.
We plan to return later in the year when there is a new menu.

We thoroughly enjoyed our food and wine pairing at St Francis Winery & Vineyards. The food was outstanding and the wine pairing was complimentary. My only critique is that timing wise it felt a bit rushed. We would definitely recommend this event!

Our food & wine pairing at St. Francis Winery was just one of many events we attended during a weeklong trip to Napa. But is was by far one of the best experiences for the food and scenery. I would highly recommend it.

The food and wine combination was excellent. I must congratulate the chef for paring everything perfect.
My favorite wine was the 2nd course my favorite food was the fish.
My least favorite was the desert course . The elderberry mouse was...... Don't know how to describe, it felt to subtle for alter the beautiful beef dish.
It was my wife's birthday lunch and she thoroughly enjoyed it.

Is it the "best restaurant in the United States"?
Golly, I just don't know because there are some I haven't tried. But if you are making a list of them, this should be one of the top ones.
There are three sittings, and the menu is fixed--they pair the food and the wines. One person in our sitting hates beets, but he wanted seconds (not available) of the beets that the chef prepared.
It is absolutely worth a special trip--do it, you won't be sorry you did.
