    Thomas Keller's restaurant. Pre fixe menu.

  • SFist

    Brined in lemons, honey, and other spices for nearly a day, the chicken gets a buttermilk bath and spicy coat of seasoning before the frier. The result is a crisp crust covering flavorful, juicy meat. Read more

    Definitely needs reservation ahead of two weeks. Dessert menu is especially awesome!

    Thomas Keller is a genius- though it's a set menu every day, you can count on it to be amazing

    Ask if they have any wines by the glass not on the menu. Usually they have wines opened for staff tasting that they will often sell for just $10/glass.

    The $34 brunch was creative, delicious, full of vegetables, and pleasantly unpretentious.

    If you sit at the bar for dinner you can order a la carte or share the full menu with your +1. Btw, everything is good always.

    You must eat here. Try addendum in the back in the summer. Of course best fried chicken ever. The manager David is amazing.

    Our favorite meal in wine country! The prefixe menu changes daily and although last minute reservations are hard to come by. Just swing by at 5:30 and see if they can seat you. Worked for us!

  • Jenn H.

    Not at all pleased with our Sunday dinner. $125 for spaghetti and meatballs, sundaes with no cherries, and rubbery octopus with not a hint of lemon. Wish I came on one of the fried chicken days

    They started seating people at 4:30pm and the hostess was a bitch.

    Best fried chicken in life!!!

    Lulu · May 27, 2014
  • Captain S.

    Most of the food was good but it's over priced for the quality. Large portions but the beef was so tough you could barely cut or even chew it. Wouldn't eat here again.

    Captain Starbuck · April 22, 2014
  • Kevin Z.

    Excellent food, pork chop to die for, just melts. Great service too!

    Great food, great service

    Impeccable service at an affordable price. A fixed menu that delights - and offers a multi-course meal that leaves you extremely full but still dreaming of the next.

    Frani Lieberman · December 28, 2013

    Friendliest staff you'll ever encounter! Get James to make you an Old-Fashioned.

  • Quan N.

    Great service, they seated us at 8pm even without reservations. Had the famous chicken and it's good but honestly, I've had much better at neighborhood soul kitchens. But the wine pairing was dead on!

    Quan Nguyen · August 11, 2013
  • Ben S.

    Most tender pork you will ever eat.

    Delicious choice for a last night/birthday night dinner in wine country. Their selection of fancy sodas actually captured everyone in our party. Dublin Dr Pepper and TFL tomatoes, 'nuff said.

    Food is amazing! Make sure to check online for their daily menu.

    best brunch ever. if any sort of pancake is listed as an 'extra' option - GET IT!

  • Tom E.

    Sunday dinner was lamb and it was fatty. Service and wine list is excellent but fell short on the entree. I would give it another shot when back but with so many other choices, I may pass.

    Tom Evans · April 7, 2013
  • Ryan A.

    Great food but warning for those who like there options - the menu is fixed, you get what they serve you. Food was still amazing though!

    Zagat 27, highly recommended by Michael Slinger

    Hugo Barra · February 17, 2013
  • Micaela v.

    With a prix fixe menu - no choices but offerings are gold star!

    Micaela van Zwoll · January 20, 2013
  • Michael S.

    For set menu, the courses are refillable (i.e. you can ask for seconds, thirds, etc for no additional cost)

    Michael So · September 24, 2012
  • Tiff T.

    Try the Vanilla Panna Cotta - Paired with tasty shortbread cookies and blackberry sauce. A perfect end to a great meal.

    Tiff Ting · September 11, 2012
  • Tiff T.

    Try the Beehive Cheese Co's Barely Buzzed - Served with brioche soldiers and cinnamon honey butter. Yummy!

    Tiff Ting · September 11, 2012
  • Tiff T.

    Try the Horseradish Crusted London Broil - With bacon spaetzle, ginger stewed apples, caramelized fennel, savoy cabbage, and cippolini onions. How can you say no to bacon spaetzle?

    Tiff Ting · September 11, 2012

    Brunch was so-so. Maybe Dinner is better. I dunno. What am I an Einstein?

  • Priya S.

    They have one pre fix menu everyday and you don't get to pick what you want. But have faith in Tom Keller and prepare to have your senses blown away!
