Yountville Dining

Where The (Michelin) Stars Align

Although it’s a relaxed town stretching just one mile, folks here tend to take their food seriously. From farm-to-table favorites to once-in-a-lifetime nine-course tasting menus, Yountville dining experiences simply can’t be matched. Here, we share a few of our favorites.

Ad Hoc

Open for dinner only, closed Tuesday and Wednesday.

Ever wonder what it would be like to be invited to Thomas Keller’s house for dinner? Ad Hoc re-creates the comfort food he grew up with in his third (and most affordable) Yountville restaurant. Each day, an entirely new menu is created, but with a twist: it’s a single four-course dinner served family style to everyone in the restaurant! This unique format started out as a temporary idea to fill the restaurant while it was being designed, but became so popular that the idea has remained. Only Monday’s menus are predictable when they offer their wonderful fried chicken dinner.

Bistro Jeanty

Open daily for lunch and dinner.

In everyday French life, it is the bistro that is woven into the daily pattern of meals and celebrations. The bistro is that little neighborhood restaurant where they know who you are, greet you warmly, and serve you satisfying foods that change with the seasons and define regional homey French cuisine. This bistro, however, is more than just a little French spot–it’s been winning awards since virtually the day it opened and drawing return guests again and again.

Bouchon Bakery

Open daily from 7:00am – 7:00pm.

Sometimes the most simple things are the most exquisite. The Bouchon Bakery offers relatively few things: fresh-baked bread, delectable pastries and cookies, take-out sandwiches, and perfectly blended coffee drinks. That is all. Yet each is a marvel of ingenuity and simplicity. All of their recipes are based on traditional French baking techniques – beautiful to behold, but even better to eat. Try the macaroons–you won’t be disappointed!
