Not intending to leave anything out, I just searched the archives and listed some mentioned there....I couldn't find a thread newer than 2006 though.....any reccomendations appreicated!
I did a travel guide to Yountville earlier this year.

It's hard to go wrong with any of the restaurants you've listed. Mustards is always fun and Bouchon is superb, excellent bistro food in an upscale/casual atmosphere. Both have top-notch wine lists.

Etolie at Chandon has a Best of Award of Excellence wine list, as does Redd, but I'd have to give the edge to Redd when it comes to food.

Also, chef Michael Chiarello is opening a new restaurant in Yountville this fall. Much anticipated.
I agree with Etoile at Chandon. I 've always enjoyed walking up to the restaurant in the evening.

For me Mustards can seem somewhat crowded.

Redd is a must.

Michael Chiarello's restaurant is named Bottega, no word on an opening date that I have heard. We will see if it's open in late October

In Healdsburg, I've been recommended a restaurant named Cyrus, but I've never been there.

Highly recommend Bistro Jeanty- although I went there for lunch. Redd's tasting menu is great QPR. Mustard's was a great lunch too. Like others said, you'll likely need to venture out of Yountiville.


We wound up at Bistro Jeanty Saturday night and Bouchon Sunday night. We liked Bistro Jeanty better, not that Bouchon wasn't great, just perferred the more casual vibe. A and A-

At Bistro Jeanty the tomato soup was unreal, refreshing that something simple can be that good. For dinner I had the Ribeye and fries. Again it was amazing, best fries I've ever had and the steak was juicy and perfectly seasoned. Drank a Raffanelli zin, great complement to the meal and good value. I didn't realize they have a Michelin star. Would highly reccomend Jeanty if you want a great meal and some money left over for purchases at the tasting rooms

Taylors Refresher is just down the street !
One of my regrets was not having a chance to grab a burger their. Smile

It was good, but I had a burger, onion rings and a bottle of water for $16.

If you want an original and great burger we went to Cindy's backstreet kitchen in St. Helena for lunch on the reccomendation of Mark Neal, it was great. Had the duck burger with shatike(sp) mushrooms. Amazing for $12 or so.
The duck burger is great but tough to eat the whole thing. Very rich. Wife and I split it for lunch with the great fries. Eating there in 2 weeks !
