La Toque :: Napa Valley Restaurant Review

napa1 napa2

When we first came to live in Napa Valley we heard about La Toque because of its Michelin star status and reputation for featuring truffles and wild mushrooms, some of our shared culinary and foraging passions. At that time, Chef Ken Frank had his restaurant at the quaint little Rancho Caymus property in Rutherford. We had the pleasure of eating there on a few occasions and Nick even did an occasional Porcini for Dining trade when his trips to the mountains were particularly bountiful.

In (year?) the restaurant moved to its current location in the Westin in downtown Napa and the short additional distance plus the many great choices in between caused us to overlook our old favorite until this year when we returned with friends for a wonderful evening. The chef’s tasting menu, the helpful wine advice and friendly, professional service made it a meal to remember. The location is modern hotel chic and honestly could be in any major city. However, the attention to detail and wine pairing advice showed that this is still one of Napa Valley’s wine country dining icons! Highly recommended.

All Seasons Bistro :: A Napa Valley Restaurant

allseasonsbistrobistroAll Seasons Bistro is just a 5 minute walk from both of our Napa Valley inns and is a must see when visiting Calistoga. Featuring bistro style dishes such as burgers, banh-mi, seafood risotto and lobster bisque, All Seasons has something for everyone! I was greeted very promptly by Krista and chose to sit right in the front window so I could look over the town. The intimate feel of the restaurant makes it an ideal location for a romantic dinner or lunch. I chose to have the French dip sandwich which was served with French fries, beef jus, horseradish incredible Napa Valley restaurantaioli and caramelized onions. The dish as a whole was extremely flavorful and left you wanting more and more.  The restaurant offers an extensive wine list which Gayle & Alex (the owners) have worked on for several years. The list features wine from all over Napa & Sonoma counties, Spain, Italy, France and more. Gayle & Alex have just celebrated their 40th year in Calistoga, making it one of the longest operating restaurants in town! Visit All Seasons Bistro every day except Monday for lunch from 11:30am or for dinner from 5:30pm to 11:30pm.
