We had brunch out on the veranda with spectacular views. Outstanding food and excellent customer service. Cynthia was wonderful and helped us pair our courses with wines. She did a perfect job! The brunch starts with a complimentary starter cocktail. I had the prosecco and my husband had the Bloody Mary - both excellent. The bread basket has a wonderful selection of bread and muffins. I chose the gnocchi with wild mushrooms as my starter. I never had gnocchi melt in my mouth before. It was unbelievable. My husband started with the Onion Tartlette with Salmon - amazing. The salmon was extremely delicate as was the creme fraiche. The tartlette did not have a strong onion flavor and all the tastes went together perfectly. I had the beef short rib - to die for - so tender as to not need a knife. My husband had the halibut - another winner - crispy on the outside, tender on the inside. It came with a mild pesto sauce that had vegetables that were cooked perfectly. To finish - the warm chocolate torte with mint ice cream was so good as was the Peanut Butter Mousse. The entire experience was a very special treat!

Being in California, you get spoiled with the beautiful weather and amazing views but Auberge takes the California experience to a whole new level. My wife and I went there for our anniversary and after being to so many other beautiful places, we were surprised to find such a gem just 2 hours from our home.

As you check in, they have small desserts in the lobby and oh WOW!!!! Those things are fantastic. The rooms offer a great view of the valley and it is so relaxing to sit in the patio and just enjoy the sunset with some wine. One thing that I really liked was the snacks and drinks in the room were complimentary and so you could enjoy the local flavors without stepping out of of your room.

The dinner and breakfast at the main restaurant was rich and flavorful, which is expected since this is a MIchelin star restaurant. Although we did not get any SPA services, they let us use the facilities and that was very nice of them.

Finally, as we were leaving, they gave us a complimentary box of the desserts since we had been raving about them all day. The pastry chef is truly exceptional (I think he has been on Food Network) and I would highly recommend combining a stay if your visiting the restaurant.

Early March we joined friends at Auberge for few days in Napa. They totally pampered us! The restaurant had wonderful breakfasts on the balcony overlooking the valley. We could linger with a second cappuccino watching the hot air balloons in the morning. Our room was gorgeous and very comfortable. They think of everything including a painting kit that can be delivered to your room for a little Plein Aire. The staff was friendly and helpful. Wonderful stay!

Room Tip: Our room faced the valley and had gorgeous views!

Great visit to this gorgeous property. Just a romantic long weekend getaway with my sweetie. Even thought it was under two hours drive from home, it felt like another country. We rode bikes in the wine country, ate fabulous food, swam, played tennis and generally relaxed. Husb raved about the massage in the spa. Need to make this an annual visit!

Room Tip: The newly remodeled rooms -- Biarritz 3 and 4 are glorious.

Visited for lunch and was one of the best of my life. Food, wine, service and views were incredible. Well worth the splurge! Make sure you book outside, the views are best in the valley. Made our trip.

We could not be happier with our experience at Auberge du Soliel, simply stated it surpassed all of our expectations! Arriving late we found the room completely stocked with goodies and treats, including the "to die for" cookie plate and a cheese and charcuterie selection. The room has everything you would expect from a hotel of this caliber and then some, every thought has been taken into consideration, medicine cabinet, Bose, great bath amenities, yoga mat and every creature comfort you would find at home. However it is and always will be the service when it comes to Auberge. The service is top, second to none. The staff knows your name at every turn, and we could not figure out how they how. Upon arrival a perfect greeting, using our name although we had not given it yet, glass of wine at reception, perfect. Then as your stay continues, they surpass each moment with one example of why they are the best after another. The staff is trained so well, it makes it so easy to never want to leave. Thank you, we will be back!
