Sons & Daughters is influenced by the seasons, unique elements of their garden, and the surrounding bay area. The approach to the food is thoughtful, delicate, and displays clarity of ingredients. Our tasting menu is 98 dollars. <br />The garden is located on one acre in Los Gatos, California and contains expansive boxes, a greenhouse and an orchard. The restaurant’s garden grows a variety of flowers, greens, herbs, vegetables, fruits and snails specifically for Sons & Daughters.<br />The wine program is unique, with wines that balance, enhance and pair the light and playful food. The 28 seat dining room is welcoming and wraps around a lively open kitchen which plays an active role in the dining experience.<br />Thank you.<br />

"Food was amazing - inventive, modern, complex. Each bite was a different surprise.. in a good way. Service was also impeccable - attentive and interactive without being overbearing. I would definitely recommend - and there is no doubt they should have their Michelin star!"

Highly acclaimed chef Thomas Keller (of The French Laundry) is behind this beautiful Yountville restaurant. Enjoy excellent French bistro cuisine in a dining room offering wonderful Parisian ambiance. <br /><br />We invite you to visit Bouchon Bakery, an authentic, country-style boulangerie located next door Bouchon Bistro. The Bakery serves traditional French breads and pastries and is open from 7am - 7pm daily.

"Its impossible that this place has one michelin star. Its like they wanted to give french laundry 4 stars, so they gave keller an extra star to throw at this one. While I understand that its a casual french brasserie, I expected the food to be really good, or at least up to the other Brasseries that I've been to. It wasn't at all. For each dish, the food was bland, or the flavors were muddled.
So, AVOID this at all costs. There are so many better restaurants in the napa area, even if you're looking for a casual place with great food.

The recipient of a 2012 and 2013 Michelin Star, Three-and-A-Half Stars from The San Francisco Chronicle's Michael Bauer and the title of Esquire's Restaurant of the Year 2011, MICHAEL MINA San Francisco is the eponymous signature restaurant featuring Michael Mina’s sensibilities with Japanese ingredients and French influence.The restaurant opened in 2010 in the same location (formerly Aqua) and city where Mina first established his culinary reputation 20 years ago. <br><br />In the kitchen, Executive Chef Ron Siegel works side by side with Michael Mina to present an ever-changing a la carte menu featuring the finest ingredients the Bay Area has to offer. Japanese for "Dueling," the Ketto Tasting Menu presents guests with a one-of-a-kind, multi-course dining experience where each diner of a party recieves a different dish, often composed of the same main ingredient, but using vastly different flavors and cooking techniques.

"Very pleased with my experience here. When we went, most customers were business dinners, but we were on vacation. The food was very good (just don't order the tuna tartare, the sesame oil is overpowering) and the service was attentive and spot on, particularly the sommelier. Would definitely recommend - it holds up to the one michelin star rating."
