Oh, hey friends! Remember me? Between moving from Texas to California, starting a new job, and settling into a new city, life has been nonstop ever since I arrived. As a result, I took a break from blogging to get everything in order, and now that I’m all settled in, I’m ready to let my creative mind loose again! This past weekend we celebrated my dads birthday, and after much anticipation and hype, I decided to treat him to an early dinner at the renowned Restoration Hardware Restaurant in Yountville, CA.
Yountville is located around 9 miles northwest of Napa Valley, which is California’s wine country. Whether you’re celebrating a special occasion or looking for a glamorous brunch scene, Restoration Hardware is the perfect spot. The indoor-outdoor space has five buildings including the wine vault, a coffee bar, and two design galleries, in addition to the main dining area. Let’s take a tour of this one-of-a-kind luxury dining gallery.
Known for being the “curator of design, taste, and style” Restoration Hardware makes you crave the luxury lifestyle through their furniture, lighting, and textiles. The Lifestyle galleries feature beautiful Belgian linen sofas and signature timeless pieces designed with quality and craftsmanship in open room design. There are two design showrooms showcasing RH Interiors and RH Modern Collections along with a large catalog named the “Source Book” containing 992 pages for pure luxury.
From the appetizers and wines to the entrée’s and service, Restoration Hardware checks all the boxes. The restaurant is open daily from 10 AM to 10 PM and serves brunch until 3:30 PM. When you walk in you’ll see several 100-year-old, live olive trees, and beautiful hanging crystal chandeliers. This restaurant makes you feel like you’re in another world, creating a magical dining experience.
We were seated promptly, and after inquiring more about the menu we ended up ordering the crispy artichokes, shaved vegetable salad, broiled salmon, Blackbird vineyard Bordeaux blend, arise, Napa Valley 2014, RH Burger & hand cut fries, drip coffee, RH peach bellini.
Whew, I know that’s a lot but trust me when I say everything was delicious! Oh, and did I mention the house-made cookies? They come out warm, with a pinch of sea salt that will literally make your mouth water. I give Restoration Hardware a 10 out of 10 when it comes to the food and service and would 100% recommend making a reservation here.
Wine Vault & Outdoor Patio
Here you’ll see me sitting in the outdoor patio lounge (simple but incredibly beautiful!) near the restrooms before heading over towards the Wine Vault. The Wine Vault at the Historic Ma(i)sonry is a two-story stone building that has been transformed into a two-tiered tasting room surrounded by a chic patio with lots of sitting spaces, a large outdoor fireplace, and an outdoor wine bar. You can sip on a curated collection of wine flights ranging from $50 to $100. Compared to the other wine tasting rooms in Yountville, the RH Wine Vault stays open until 10 p.m, so you can get your party on!
Overall Restoration Hardware Yountville provided Excellent food, atmosphere, and first class service. This establish is under great leadership and management, when and or if you come to Napa Valley, you MUST stop by this restaurant. Yountville itself shines with an impressive number of restaurants and is easily walkable which makes this road trip well worth it.
