A long anticipated meal, extremely disappointed at the end. The whole tasting menu took only 2 hours, that's too fast for this type of restaurant. We were forced to finish our food quickly otherwise the food will go cold. The technique of cooking is fine, but it's the type of technique that u find 10 years ago, it's already outdated... More

My husband and I had the chance to eat here in Feb and it was nothing short of amazing. The service was perfect, the wine was good and all of the food was delicious. We even had the chance to meet Thomas Keller and he was so nice and took the time to chat with us in the kitchen. Life... More

And we are still picking up the pieces. This place was beyond and exceeded all of our expectations. We could not believe we waited this long to come here since we spend quite a bit of time in the Napa area. From start to finish our taste buds were treated to major flavor burst and excitement. Was it possible that... More

The best ever dining experience we have had across the globe, thanks to all the staff, namely Emily, Joe and Oscar. Brilliant in every way. Whatever you do before you die, go to The French Laundry. Well done Thomas Keller and thanks for the lifetime experience that was. We will never forget it. Tip: Talk to the staff as much... More

I struggle at my attempt to write this review as words may not do this place justice. The experience of such warm service sets the bar for every food establishment around the globe. We were sat in the upstairs dining room. An intimate setting with around 6 tables and a private room for a larger group. The downstairs dining room... More

This is the best place in the whole world. The food was amazing and the service as well. The menu is different every day and no ingredients are used more than once! We also got to see the new kitchen. Amazing amazing amazing and full of surprises during the whole tasting Menu

The French Laundry has just recently reopened after a renovation of their kitchen. Innovation of the menu based upon it legendary status, I would have expected as well. However, the menu is not creative from a flavorful viewpoint, but I would rate the presentation as exceptional. The dishes were truly an art, however lacking innovation of taste. Don't get me...

We have been fortunate enough to be able to dine in several Michelin 3 star restaurants around the world, including Per Se. The French Laundry with one exception clearly deserves its 3 stars. First that exception: We were seated just after 8 p.m. We were silently given menus and water was poured. We were then ignored for 20 minutes until... More

My girlfriend and I dined at The French Laundry last night. I wish I could say that it was a memorable experience for the right reasons. Unfortunately, while dining, I discovered a fly in my wine. One would think that such a high end and heavily well regarded restaurant that prides itself for service and has so many accolades would... More

Over the last 10 years I have been lucky to have experienced French Laundry over a half dozen times. Several times in the private room. This was the first time back after a couple of years and since the new kitchen has opened. I have to say this is in my top three restaurants in the country. Hard to believe... More
