Carpe Vino in Auburn makes Open Table’s top 100 list again

Open Table, the popular online restaurant-reservations site, collected 5 million restaurant reviews to assemble its Diners’ Choice Awards for the top 100 Best Restaurants in America, and Carpe Vino in Auburn made the list for the third year in a row.

This makes seven Top 100 awards that Carpe Vino has received over the past three years from OpenTable. Carpe Vino also has made the list for its wine selections.

“This is the third year in a row we have been named to OpenTable’s list for best restaurant wine lists, so this is no fluke,” said Carpe Vino co-owner Gary Moffat. “Our most important critics—the people who dine with us—continue to praise Chef Alexander’s remarkable menus, our value-driven wine list, an immensely talented service staff and our 19th century, historic venue in Old Town Auburn.”

“In my mind, OpenTable recognition is set apart from other ‘best of’ lists because it can’t be influenced by mass email appeals,” Moffat said. “It takes year-round blocking and tackling—excellence on every level—and we’ve delivered. . .in fact I’d venture we’re on a very short list of restaurants nationwide that have been named to six lists.”

Located in what was originally a Civil War-era saloon in the heart of Old Town Auburn, Carpe Vino offers a unique setting for relishing great wine and stellar cuisine. Carpe Vino’s innovative menu is California themed yet French-inspired.

Among the top 100, The Kitchen in Sacramento is also on the list. Four are from San Francisco: Acquerello, Crenn, Saison and Sons & Daughters.

“These winning restaurants are conducted like great orchestras,” said Caroline Potter, OpenTable Chief Dining Officer. “All the players, from chefs and managers to wait staff and sommeliers, have artfully mastered their parts, and every instrument of hospitality, whether it be deft service or imaginative menus, is in harmony with one another to create a symphonic dining experience.”
