Fodor's Review

Possibly the most romantic roost for a dinner in all the Wine Country is a terrace seat at the Auberge du Soleil's illustrious restaurant, and the Mediterranean-inflected cuisine more than matches the dramatic vineyard views. The prix-fixe dinner menu ($105 for three courses, $125 for four; $150 for the six-course tasting menu), which relies largely on local produce, might include veal sweetbreads with hearts of palm and chanterelles in an orange glaze or prime beef pavé with white corn, potato croquettes, and a caramelized shallot sauce. The service is polished, and the wine list is comprehensive. With a menu that embraces everything from muffins and gnocchi to Cabernet-braised short rib and (in season) a Maine lobster omelet, the weekend brunch here is delightfully over-the-top.
