The Restaurant at Meadowood offers an elegant, but relaxed dining experience featuring the singular Napa Valley cuisine of Chef Christopher Kostow. The Restaurant features a three hundred thirty dollar Tasting Menu in the dining room and a five hundred dollar Counter Menu enjoyed at the Chef's Counter in the kitchen. Both menus are inclusive of service. A tailored wine and spirits pairing experience is also available to accompany the menus.

In addition, The Restaurant offers a fixed three course menu for ninety dollars that can be enjoyed exclusively at the bar. The Restaurant Rotunda features a snack menu for forty dollars, intended to be enjoyed with the celebrated cocktails of bartender Sam Levy.

    We planned a very special meal for my parents’ 44th wedding anniversary and took them to the fine dining restaurant at Meadowood. We assumed this would be a lovely evening and exceptional meal considering the high ratings and the premium pricing - we were VERY wrong. The meal was awful! Each dish, starting from the first bites (amuse bouche) were texturally wrong and bizarre tasting. Even though, when asked by the servers if we were enjoying the meal, we honestly told them that the seasoning and flavors were not right, we were charged full price at the end of the night and were never offered any alternatives or any compensation of any kind. Even a very modest self-respecting restaurant would offer to bring you food of some kind that you would enjoy! No such thing happened here. We were thoroughly underwhelmed at the quality and overall flavor of the meal, and ultimately we felt so bad that the anniversary dinner for my parents was ruined! We will NEVER be able to recommend this restaurant. We have dined around the world at some of the finest establishments, including The French Laundry (which is comparable in price), and we have truly never experienced a meal that was this bad - absolutely inedible - and SO expensive. Unless you enjoy soapy burnt tasting food, you’ll be wildly disappointed and seriously regretting the purchase.

    This is not just a meal but an amazing experience. Each course is well thought out and creative, the service is impeccable, and I am looking forward to returning.

    I want to warn you all, my fellow fine diners, about my experience at Meadowood. I urge you all to look elsewhere for your culinary needs or risk the same problems I had during my visit and subsequent communications with management. My wife and I went to dinner with our friends and all of us disliked EVERY COURSE of food. It was over $1400 for the four of us without any alcohol, this is simply unacceptable. We frequent Michelin starred restaurants and understand how great food tastes [we had been at the French Laundry the night before which was tremendous - as any establishment with THREE Michelin stars should be]. The fact that none of us liked any of the numerous courses of food is hard for us to believe. We left the restaurant in shock that we all felt the same way. I had my travel concierge reach out to the restaurant’s management. Meadowood’s assistant director, Chitra Samanta, told him that my group was intoxicated and argued with each other outside. Instead of addressing the bad food, they went after us personally. After some simple questions from my concierge, Chitra admitted that her staff said we had not had any alcohol with our meal, that they had not addressed the alleged intoxication with us, and that we had not made any staff or restaurant guests uncomfortable. At this point, I called Chitra and spoke with her myself. I calmly relayed our disappointment. She agreed to speak with the head chef and restaurant director. A few hours later I received an email [not even a phone call] stating that they were not going to do anything about our negative experience. Instead, the email insituated that our palettes were not up to par with their food!! Unbelievable! It is clear to me that Meadowood cares more about keeping our money than doing ANYTHING to resolve this situation. They insulted our characters with baseless claims of intoxication and poor behavior, which are totally false. FOOD LOVERS BEWARE! DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY AT MEADOWOOD!

    I should preface this review with the fact that I'm actually not a picky person and really laid back and hardly ever complain. This is a 3-star Michelin restaurant, so we were expecting the best of the best. However, in one of our courses, they left the crab shell in the food (I left the shell for the waiter to see - they apologized profusely which was a nice gesture). On another occasion, they dripped some wine onto the placemat after pouring us some and didn't wipe it up until they were told about it. Normally this stuff doesn't bother us at all and I would normally just toss the shell to one side and wipe up the wine myself; But because we were at a 3-star Michelin restaurant, it somehow became magnified and unacceptable. The service (people) were fantastic though and super nice/cordial! The ambiance was magnificent (love the tree in the middle of the room)! Maybe my expectations were too high considering this was a 3-star, but I felt the food was probably on par with most 1-2 star Michelin restaurants and the service was on par with other 3-star restaurants I've been to. We went to another famous napa restaurant for lunch the next day (no stars for that one though it probably should get one) and they've never screwed up a meal I've had there before - which is why it's one of my favorites up there. After our meal at Meadowood, we were given a tour of the kitchen (in between the two reservation time slots when there was a little bit of downtime for the kitchen staff). There is a chef's table in the kitchen that seats 4, so if you make a reservation ahead of time, you can ask for it and see your food being prepared. I've heard it's quite an experience! The birthday cake and note from the restaurant were a nice touch at the end also! The table next to us had some pretty unorthodox requests and the restaurant aimed to please and were able to fulfill their requests. I was impressed with that!

    For the price we paid, food lacked of flavor while the presentations were simple. Some of the dishes were salty. Luckily, the service is impeccable! Too expensive for the quality of food it serves. Disappointing to say the least! Meeting the Executive Chef Christopher Kostow and touring the kitchen were the highlights of our dinner. It's hard to imagine it earned 3 Michelin Stars which was the sole reason why we dined here.
