Winery | Napa, Wine Country

What an AMAZING experience. If you’re a foodie and love reds, the Chef’s Table wine pairing is a must! From the greeting when we arrived and the thoughtful care taken of every detail, we felt the experience was that one would expect at The Ritz. Our hostess Lisa rocked it out as she walked us through each course and pairing. Her passion and humor kept us very entertained. Nice addition Sequoia Grove and thanks again for a beautiful memory.

AMAZING food and tremendous staff - so fun to watch the chef at work (Carlos), who is a tremendous chef and restauranteur - his sister and fiancée and mom help out, and we loved the family contribution to a wonderful evening - we tried SIX small plates and one large plate between the 2 of us - probably too much food but there were so many amazing things to try! Can't wait to return - there is a reason this restaurant is consistently ranked highly on Open Table, Yelp and Trip Advisor More

Discover San Francisco

Farm-to-table is everywhere now, but it was here first. Just north of San Francisco, the values-forward counties of Marin and Sonoma offer an abundance of sustainably sourced produce. Of course, there’s more to eat in the Bay than leafy greens alone—don’t miss the mainstays like Cioppino (a seafood stew best eaten with thick-cut garlic bread), Mission-style burritos, local oysters and Neapolitan pizza where pizzerias around town war for the ultimate version. The city has long been home to distinct international flavors, so for authentic dim sum, Chinatown tops the charts. The Mission is ablaze with longstanding taquerias, steakhouses and a new wave of artisanal bakeries and coffee houses. And the Fisherman’s Wharf, while touristy, is the spot for Bay caught seafood. From there, we recommend walking to Crissy Field for Golden Gate Bridge gazing and sparkling sunshine.
