“Perhaps the best of the best overall dining experience in Yountville. And that's saying a lot”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 September 2014

Yountville is perhaps the town (outside of some small villages in France) with the most Michelen stars per capita anywhere in the world. Yes, The French Laundry gets all the fame, and there are other great choices like Bouchon, Redd and Bistro Jeanty, but Lucy restaurant at Bardessono (most skip the Lucy part) is perhaps the local favorite. Elegant, with great food, and especially exquisite pastas, and a relatively affordable menu and wine list. The service is the perfect "attentive but not in a rush" balance too. If you are looking for either a really romantic place for two or an upscale business location for dinner this may be your best bet in a town where it is increasingly hard to find a dining experience that is not world-class.

“nice courtyard”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 August 2014

Pretty expensive, not your down home breakfast but pleasing. Bloody Mary's were $15 each. I loved the atmosphere but would not go back

This is an excellent restaurant that sits in a beautiful, upscale hotel in the heart of Yountville. The food is excellent and the service is amazing. I loved the presentation and qualityf of the food. Our friends, who live locally, rave about the place.

“Truffle ravioli”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014

The service here was amazing and they offered us a free dessert because it was our honeymoon. The food was great and the wine was perfect. We sat on the patio and it was beautiful
