The Gourmet Car has two seatings. Guests who are assigned first seating, dine on fresh soup or salad and their choice of entree in the dining car while traveling up the valley, and will be served dessert with coffee or tea in one of the lounge cars on the return trip. Those guests with a second seating assignment will be served appetizers in one of the lounge cars while heading North to St. Helena and will enjoy their fresh soup or salad, choice of entree and dessert in one of the dining cars on the return trip.
All the rail cars are expertly finished with Honduran mahogany paneling, etched glass partitions, brass accents and original artwork. Guests are invited to explore the train where they may visit the kitchen car to see our chefs in action, our wine tasting bar, where our wine expert can help you find a favorite new wine, or the observation deck to enjoy an unobstructed view of the valley.
To maintain the romance of the Napa Valley night, all parties enjoy private tables.
