The Restaurant at Meadowood
Californian tasting menus in posh resort
The Zagat Review
"Simply extraordinary" , this "top-of-the-line" Californian in a "beautiful setting" at St. Helena's Meadowood resort provides an "ingenious" tasting menu from chef Christopher Kostow that's "inventive, bold and unforgettable" , with "wines to match" and service that "mirrors the high level of execution" ; if you'd like to see everything "meticulously prepared" – and you're ready for an even more "expensive" evening – reserve the "ultimate chef's table" ; P.S. the bar's three-course menu is a less extravagant option.

Wholeheartedly deserves all three of its Michelin stars. Unlike other restaurants of this caliber that I have visited the restaurant at Meadowood focuses on presenting ingredients in their whole and nearly complete form. The creativity and effort that goes into each dish is stunning. Service operated like a highly coordinated and well-oiled machine. The parking can be a bit difficult if there is another event like a wedding taking place at the same time. Plus tax and tip a bit over $700 makes this a place that I will only visit once every decade or so but I'm glad that I came.

One of the most beautiful dining rooms and kitchens I’ve ever had the pleasure dining in. The dining room faces out into the Forrest and you really get he feel for cuisine which focuses on foraging for ingredient in the area. Service was top notch, staff were very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. Wine and cocktail list was extensive. The food however was lacking in my opinion. I can’t fault the execution or technique but the flavor combinations for many of he dishes we not to my liking. And the foraged ingredients....some should have stayed in a the forest. I do understand the philosophy and concept of foraging, but if the produce isn’t up to standard or unavailable from foraging, I’d rather source from farmers and producers instead of risk sticking to foraging for the sake of it. But then again this was my first time dining in a restaurant whose focus foraging and may have unreasonable expectations before coming here.

Attended their 12 Days of Christmas dinner on Day 7 with Chef Yoshi Takazawa from Japan. A fabulous Christmas gift to myself. Must try dinner experience if you are a foodie. Will definitely return to try their tasting menu. Some highlights below.
