We had our reservations for 5 months and what a dining experience. Service was impeccable and the wine list...oh baby! We dined with 8 people and all 8 dinners were a 5 star. Amazing!

While the food was inventive & delicious it is the entire experience that puts this place at the top of my list. Yes, it is pricey...but worth every penny. The timed precision of the delivery and removal of plates, custom china, beautiful stemware and centerpieces. Nothing is overlooked. At the end of the evening we got a trou of their... More

We visited the French Laundry as the start to our honeymoon and it truly lived up to expectations. The service was impeccable, the food expertly executed and beautifully presented. The personalized culinary journey that we were taken on was unforgettable. Words can't really do justice to the completeness of this experience, including tour of the kitchen afterwards. It is eye...

My son had recently graduated from Culinary school and as a graduation gift - we took him and the family to Napa for a long weekend. We were so lucky to get a reservation at the French Laundry! My son was so impressed (as we all were) with the incredible flavors of the items served to us and the impeccable... More

This is Thomas Kellers flagship restaurant. It is almost impossible to get a decent reservations. Dinners are breathtakingly expensive. Food is perfect but the price and attitude leave a lot to be desired.

We came in early January - it is still the most amazing restaurant in the world in terms of creativity, quality, service, etc. There was such attention to detail in the food preparation as well as the staff. There is little overlap in the menu with Per Se but this experience is so unique in terms of the California setting.... More

I finally got the much sought after reservation to the French Laundry. Since the restaurant serves probably less than 100 people a day and is frequently lauded as the best restaurant in the US over its past 20 plus year, reservations go quickly exactly 30 days before you plan to dine. By the time we got to talk with a... More

Don't underestimate the lunch service! We kept trying to get in for dinner, but ended up only having a lunch option...and we couldn't have been happier. I'd highly recommend doing it this way so you're not coming off a day of wine tasting and can appreciate every bite AND have time to have all that amazing food settle (I've never... More
