what our customers have to say
"Last night we had our Vine Dining experience, and it was phenomenal! Our only regret was not scheduling a couple additional days. Everyone this morning is still talking about how fabulous the atmosphere, food and staff was. Thank you so much for helping our Napa vacation start off in such a great way."
- Ray S, Ohio
"I want to thank you for a truly amazing evening last night. Chef Fran and Chef Max were so relaxed and engaging and of course the food was phenomenal. I will dream about that soup and the risotto for weeks!"
-Jeanne A., Palo Alto, CA
"Thank you very much for the incredible dinner on Saturday. I asked my wife what the highlight of the weekend was and she immediately said your dinner! She said it was the best food she has ever had – and we eat a lot! Thank you for making her birthday memorable."
- Nathan M., San Diego, CA
"We had a wonderful catered dining experience with Vine Dining!  They arrived on time, were organized, friendly and accommodating to our schedule.  And the best part was the food was delicious!  We ordered a chocolate birthday cake for dessert and our guests are still talking about it."
-Rhonda W., Austin, TX
Thank you for the fabulous dinner that Chef Chris and Natalia prepared!!!  They were just amazing and so gracious! The ladies were all so thrilled with the entire dinner.  The bride, Nicole, is in “love” with the sauce that was on the fish.  She called me a few days after we got back from Sonoma and was still raving about the meal.  The chicken was amazing, too!!"
