    My husband and I dined at Auro for his 68th birthday. What an amazing experience. Our waiter Jordan was excellent. Food was fabulous. We had an opportunity to sit at one of the two tables in the kitchen. We met Chef Rogelio Garcia. He was so nice! The whole evening was a wonderful experience. Well worth the $$$.

    I took my daughter for her 38th birthday. We had the experience, and I mean experience, of a lifetime. This was not just dinner. It was dinner and a show. A show of the most wonderfully prepared dishes from the entire world. We were there for hours. The staff felt like friends, they appreciated showing and explaining the food as much as we appreciated listening to them. We went all out, didn’t care about the bill. It was a magical night. I’m not saying anymore. You have to experience this place. We’ll be back for my birthday this time!

    Beautiful experience. Food & wine were exquisite, and all the flavors stayed in our minds for several days. This is definitely a high end experience, but it did not feel stuffy at all. Warm & inviting atmosphere. Give yourself plenty of time to really enjoy the experience and not be rushed at all. I only wish I had gotten a copy of the menu so that we could remember all of the exact descriptions and wine pairings! Highly recommend.

    Wonderful experience from start to finish. The service was attentive but not overly intrusive. The food was amazing and I would highly recommend the wine pairing to go with it all. So many added surprises that weren't on the menu, but in the end we went away beautifully satisfied, and not feeling like we ate too much. A win in our book.

    This is a restaurant you attend for the experience and not just to fill up your belly. The food is simply outstanding. We had six official courses but we had probably a dozen dishes brought out to us during our three hour meal. The staff were courteous and attentive, and we got the chance to tour the kitchen and meet the chef.

    Hands down the best meal I’ve had at a restaurant. Delicious and unique food was served with fresh ingredients and thoughtful presentation. We were blown away with each bite and left that night feeling so satisfied. Additionally each person who worked at the restaurant provided us with fantastic care and made us feel like we were a guest in their own home. We were even invited to go into the kitchen, meet the chef and get a quick tour… this was the most unique experience we have had and we were humbled by the few minutes we had with Chef and his amazing staff. This meal is worth every penny and I hope that this restaurant continues to get the accolades and following Chef and the team at Auro deserve. MUST go!!

    Is it a contradiction to say a restaurant was good, but that we probably won't return? What would cause that decision? Auro presents a menu within the style of a three-star restaurant (many small attractive plates) but struggles to reach the flavor level of the single star they've achieved. While none of the dishes were offensive, none earned a desire for an encore. The kampachi was probably the best executed with a nice agua chili. The wagyu was tough. I got tired of chewing the grizzle, which I spit out and hid under a small piece of bread. The piece of kinki fish (a purportedly rare rockfish/cod) was so small as to evoke laughter, as in you've got to be kidding. The wine list is extensive. However, again, you've got to be kidding. $400-$465 for the current releases of Mark Aubert's delicious Chardonnays? $815 for the Sine Qua Non Aperta, a white Rhone blend that sells for around $125 for those lucky enough to be on their list, and available at reasonable premiums from various online sites. Other mark ups seemed fairer, but I didn't make an extensive analysis. To be fair, they provide generous pours when ordering wines by the glass. Their corkage is $75. Given their list mark ups, you may still be better off paying the ransom if you bring a nice bottle. I greatly appreciate restaurants that do have a corkage policy, tho' I'd hoped that here in wine country they'd keep it down to earth. $55 at Bouchon? $200 at FL? Come on, guys. The service is exemplary at Auro and the architectural design and quality probably necessitate their high prices. Menu prix fixe was $205. The menus didn't include the price. I guess "if you gotta ask"... I think La Toque provides a better value in the one-star category and I generally find their offerings more delicious. While most plates at Auro were good, the only ones that earned "delicious" were the desserts. I wanted to love Auro and I want it to succeed. I hope they'll continue to improve. I'll wait to hear they have before a return.

    Auro was one of the best dining experiences. We celebrated my sisters 40th birthday here. Our server Adam was genuine, lovely, great conversation, selected a great wine for the accompanying meal, and had great energy. Salma beautifully presented each meal as well and great service! Chef Rogelio portrays his humble roots through the expression of his Latin/Mexican influence in subtle touches in the tasting experience. Absolutely amazing experience. His true attention to detail that him and the team embody is truly represented. The presentation of the fresh local ingridients being used was unique. I have dined at many Michelin restaurants but there is something special here characterized by the service, the humbleness of the people and ingredients and overall gray flavors!
