Restaurants in Yountville

Chef Richard Reddington’s sleek, sultry, Mediterrasian restaurant is as close to Hollywood as you’ll find in Napa Valley.

One of the world’s hardest-to-score tables (where diners have been known to wait a year for reservations) has been praised to the heavens for more than a decade now—and deservedly so.

The newest incarnation of the pioneering 30-year-old restaurant at Domaine Chandon is Étoile. Executive chef Christopher Manning cooks with a robust American sensibility, and the occasional French accent.

In the Fall of 2008, Food Network celebrity chef Michael Chiarello launched this low-key dining room with wood-beamed ceilings and Venetian-plaster walls.
