We were very disappointed! Food was good but whilst we were eating our lunch the view consisted of an unkept garden at the train station, followed by badly kept real estate with plenty of graffiti. We found the staff preoccupied with their own thoughts. Sonoma County has plenty of gluten free bread and dessert shops who Im sure would be pleased to work with the Napa Valley Wine Train, the gluten free options on the train were extremely limited and of poor quality, we ordered a gluten free menu several weeks prior to our visit. We were moved to the observation car to await our dessert, desserts sat in an open table for 30 mins with people brushing past them before they were delivered to the tables. We paid almost 700.00 for 4 of us this included a photo as we embarked, We had a designated driver and It would have been a nice touch to give designated drivers a complimentary bottle of wine at the end of the tour. We also made an effort to respect the casual smart dress code, guy in front of me had flip flops and cut offs. So, would we do this again, no, would we suggest the tour to others, no.
It was a wonderful trip with spectucalar views of vineyards and wine cellars. The Pullman cars were very beautiful and comfortable. the meal was delicious. The service was excellent, as was the Wine! Enjoy the photo below!

My expectations must have been way too high because this was a total let down. It started out alright other than slow and late and the food was ok but there were no views, as expected, and it went on for waaaayy tooooo long. Would not recommend for the cost or the time it took.
