What follows is a list of the in the Napa Wine Country restaurant that were awarded stars in the 2014 Michelin Guide. The brief comments that follow each listing are not from the Guide, but are included to give an additional perspective on the restaurant.
The French Laundry
Reservations are accepted two months in advance, and are extremely difficult to obtain. You will have a memorable, although quite expensive, dining experience. This is one restaurant that you should not miss if your budget can afford it. Plan on spending upwards of $750 for two persons with wine. This is one of only two, three-star restaurants in the entire Bay Area, and some say that it is the best restaurant in the world. Good luck, however, in securing a reservation.
St Helena, 707-965-1205
You will have a romantic and delightful evening in this very comfortable and beautiful restaurant in the hills of Napa Valley. Excellent fixed price menu featuring optional wine pairings, at prices that are slightly more reasonable than those of the French Laundry. Meadowood, like the French Laundry, has an extensive wine list. If you are staying at the hotel, you definitely should not miss having dinner at this restaurant.
