Enjoy excellent French bistro cuisine in a dining room offering wonderful Parisian ambiance.

The Bakery serves traditional French breads and pastries and is open from 7am - 7pm daily.

We were staying nearby for a few days and came here to get breakfast every day. Yes this is not going to be your cheapest place for a croissant and some coffee, but it might be the best. Probably on a par with Baker & Spice in London but with some nice people serving there, which makes all the difference. Great coffee, great service, great pastries and always very popular. If you happen to be in Yountville it's well worth trying a few things - macaroons and Monkey bread are great.

Sure what is, but when you get to hang the Keller name on your front door you better bring it. Unfortunately our experience was not up to snuff. Main issue? Service. We were seated in the corner, normally a nice table to secure however it was noisy and our waitress made a few mistakes. 1 salad brought instead of the two ordered. One refill on drinks instead of the two ordered. Also, lots of time in between checks. "how are things", etc. She offered to pay for the missed drink. Brownie points for her and helped her obtain a better tip. However, when things are noisy you recite the order back to the table. Takes a few seconds and ensures accuracy. Ultimately, the meal and drinks were fine but the measure these days of a restaurant, let alone one created by an icon is whether it draws a return or a glowing recommendation. Unfortunately this Keller rendition will not.

I went with a group for lunch. I ordered the BLT. No bacon whatsoever on the sandwich. Staff is rude but the place is packed. But the macaroons re to die for. Never in my life have I had a macaroon like this. I had the salted caramel. If I had known the sandwiches were going to be bad, I would have ordered 6 macaroons. heavenly!
