Now a days, no one remember to eat nutritional food and just go for junk food which they like to eat but not good for healthy life.

Hi Writestuff,

Angele - we've never been.

Bottega - have enjoyed dinner on two different trips. Excellent each time (food, service, everything)

Auberge du Soleil - best French Onion Soup I've ever had. Sat on the deck at lunch and enjoyed a great meal with wonderful views.

La Toque - sorry, not impressed. The one bright spot was the sommelier - he was remarkable in his knowledge and very helpful. The food, however, was disappointing. Not worth the $300 tab. We have had far tastier meals at Celadon, Fume Bistro, Ristorante Allegria. Maybe it was just an off night for them, but nothing made us want to give it another try.

Other places we have been and will certainly return:

Cindy's Backstreet Kitchen, Restaurant Cuvee, Cole's Chop House, Mustards Grill, Solbar, Bistro Jeanty, Hurley's, Greystone, and Farmstead. We've had excellent meals at all of these, whether lunch or dinner, and plan to return to each at some point.

Happy dining!

I think we love great food almost as much as we love great wine. Plus I spent 13 years in the food biz. Our current dining tour while we're in Napa Oct 3-7, at this point, includes:

Angele
Bottega
Auberge du Soleil - mainly so I can drink wine and watch the sunset over the valley
La Toque

However, I am willing to take suggestions on yeas and nays. I'm also considering Terra (have eaten there before, but they are currently booked) and Cindy's Backstreet Kitchen. All of these for dinner. I figure we'll play lunch by ear, and I'm always a fan of grabbing snacks from Oakville Grocery. I've been to Bistro Jeanty before - forever ago along with Bistro Giovanni. I've heard Boon Fly Cafe and Cook are also good for lunch. Thanks for your thoughts and time!
