    Great experience. Burger was a bit pricey. We added bacon and avocado and it came to $42. Good burger, but $42? Also had a small chip/dip appetizer which was below average and cost $26.

    Thanyu for making my 60th bday so magical. The view was great, the food was delicious - (perfectly cooked meats, a beautiful housemade pasta with sauces and veggies still crisp, lots of flavor). So surprised when a host came with our desserts - with candles & “Happy Birthday “ in chocolate script (double birthdays). It was his beaming smile and confession “ I love to do the birthdays!” that won our hearts. Will come again! My birthday wish is… the recipe for the squash blossom stuffed rataouille?! We couldn’t order it because we were at the bar not the restaurant. I love ratatouille and just know yours will be divine

    The view was spectacular as was the service, however the food was just average. We didn’t taste one thing that we thought was excellent. It was just ok, which wasn’t acceptable for the price point. We’re happy to pay a decent price for great food. We’d take Mustards Grill any day for great food!

    Beautiful dining atmosphere. The food was good, not great, but for the price we weren't overly impressed. Probably would've been better to pay more money for the 4 course meal experience. Our server was great, place was not busy. Next time probably would pass on this, at least the bar section of the restaurant.

    There is not a better view in the valley for alfresco dining. The outdoor bar seating is a great opportunity to enjoy all that the restaurant has to offer ambiance-wise with a menu assortment that is more chill and laid back. We enjoy dining here whenever we visit Napa.

    The setting is simply hard to beat in the Valley. I've lived here for 50 years. The Bar Menu is a less formal menu and I chose the wrong item, sadly. For some crazy reason the Cob Salad was boring and seemed to have no (too little) dressing or interesting toppings and the lettuce was straight up boring. I expected something prettier and certainly tastier. I'm a foodie and this was was way too expensive for such an unexciting salad. I was truly underwhelmed and surprised. I go their at least seasonally and then many times more in the lovely weather.

    The highlight of our Napa valley visit. We have chosen the Auberge du Soleil as a good friend of mine used to work here roughly 20 yrs ago. Food was amazing and the view is astonishing. I highly recommended both the Bar or the fine dining restaurant to everyone that enjoys good food, world class wine selection combined with one of the best views in Napa Valley

    We enjoyed our lunch views so much that we finally realized our server never came to take our order. Someone got our drinks right out but never returned and we when asked (another server) where our server was, he went and got her and we’d never even seen her. It ruins everything when you feel forgotten or unimportant. We were there at a 11:30am (a very slow time) so it wasn’t busy at all. Not sure what happened but it was disappointing. The food was delicious and the views amazing.

The food was also great, and the ambiance has no rival. I highly recommend this venue for any celebration with your loved one.
