Thomas Keller’s Ad Hoc restaurant in Napa

Thomas Keller’s Ad Hoc restaurant in Napa

Ad Hoc

I don’t need a holiday to dine at Ad Hoc, one of Thomas Keller’s top rated restaurants. It’s a prix fixe dinner, everyone gets the same thing based on what’s cooking in the kitchen. And it’s always delicious. You normally have to wait until the day of to see what’s on the menu but lookie here, I have a link to the Thanksgiving dinner menu - spoiler: there’s caviar involved!

Ad Hoc’s Thanksgiving Dinner Menu

Angele Napa Valley

Angèle Restaurant and Bar

You can’t get much more romantic than Angèle - that is if you equate romance to a lovely French bistro on the river. The food here is always top notch and if this year is like the past you can expect a pre fixe Thanksgiving menu with plenty of wine pairing options.

Auberge du Soleil in Napa Valley

Auberge du Soleil in Napa Valley

Auberge du Soleil

The restaurant at 5 star resort Auberge du Soleil is one of the classiest dining experiences in Napa, often rivaling The French Laundry in top pick. You can bet that the food here will knock your socks off, make reservations if you want an elegant dining experience where the food lives up to your expectations.

Bistro Jeanty

You know how to find a good restaurant, right? You go where the locals go and the locals flood Bistro Jeanty, a casual French bistro that balances exquisite cuisine with prices that won’t make you gasp. I have loved every dining experience I have ever had here.

Celadon Napa

A tiny dining room, a warm and inviting patio with outside fireplace, make reservations early for Celadon, one of my favorite restaurants that serves upscale “comfort food” from around the glove, from Asian to Italian to Mediterranean.

Farm Restaurant in Napa in the Carneros area

Farm Napa Valley

Located in the upscale Carneros Inn, Farm Napa Valley is right in between Napa and Sonoma, a perfect location if you are in the south part of the valley. Thanksgiving is served from noon until 6, a three course family style dinner serving traditional Thanksgiving fare with an upscale twist.

Harvest Table, Napa Valley

Harvest Table, Napa Valley

Harvest Table

Harvest Table is located in the posh Harvest Inn resort and is one of Napa’s best dining experiences, a bit of a hidden gem. Incredible cocktails as well as an incredibly well executed gourmet feast right down to the traditional turkey. Set price, including a reduced price for children making this a family friendly option.

La Toque in the Napa Westin

Michelin star Thanksgiving, anyone? That’s what you’ll find here at La Toque, the famous restaurant inside of the Napa Westin serving up their Thanksgiving feast from 1 to 5.

Meadowood Grill in Napa Valley

Meadowood Grill Napa Valley

Fancy, fancy, fancy! Meadowood Grill is located in the Meadowood Resort, a 5 star luxury resort that looks a bit like an East Coast country club. Dress up a bit for this one, the menu has both Turkey and Lobster, my kind of Thanksgiving.

Solbar in Napa Valley

You know that resort I told. you about called Auberge du Soleil? Well they also own the more trendy Solage resort which is where you will find Solbar. Totally upscale without any of that stuffiness nonsense.
