Dull decor, bad lighting, poor service and dirty carpet is not what you would expect at such a restaurant. It's hard to enjoy the food with those other issues. We were thrilled to go to the French Laundry with two other couples while visiting Napa....More

On a recent trip to Napa we were fortunate to try BOTH of the 3-star restaurants in the area. Of course French Laundry is well known and reservations are impossible to get, which also means expectations are set high before even setting foot inside. Fortunately,...More

Having been to the French Laundry a number of times over the 23 years that they have been open(under Chef Thomas Keller) I have never been disappointed. Sometimes it is difficult to get a reservation but it is worth it! The newly remodeled kitchen event...More
