Vista Dome Dinner

  Available     Full     Unavailable

In the late fall and winter, the earlier sunsets mean that most or all of the journey is under the cover of night, making for a very romantic dinner. 

Our 1952 Pullman domed rail car provides our most private dining experience. Your meal begins with a complimentary glass of California sparkling wine and continues with a multiple course lunch of your choice.

The Vista Dome Car is an elevated observation style dining car expertly refurbished using Honduran Mahogany paneling and brass accents. Executive Chef Donald Young offers a unique menu for this dining option with all selections prepared in the kitchen located on the first floor of this car.

As with all our menu choices, the meals are freshly prepared on the train using only the freshest ingredients.

Access to the Vista Dome car is limited exclusively to the guests with reserved seating offering an intimate setting and is one of our most popular dining experiences. Guests are invited to explore the rest of the train after the entree and prior to the dessert. Perfect for a private function or one of our special events, this domed rail car hosts up to 56 dining guests.

To maintain the private and exclusive ambiance of the Champagne Vista Dome, all booths are private tables and not seated with others as in traditional rail arrangements.

If the date you are interested in is not available, please call as availability changes quickly.

During the summer, enjoy the waning sunlight on our Sunset Dinner Trains. The Train departs when the vineyards are still bathed in warm sunlight, with the often spectacular sunsets occurring en route. Take in the constantly changing scenery from one of the few restaurants where you can see a Napa Valley sunset over the vineyards. Return to Napa under the cover of darkness, your reflection in the window of the dimply lit railcars and the twinkling lights of the wineries in the distance. The Sunset Dinner Trains are offered April through September.
