40th birthday in Napa -- best options?

pauliface | Mar 17, 2011 02:08 PM

I'm heading to the Napa area -- group of 6 - for a friend's special 40th birthday.
I have not been there in some time, and the only fine restaurant I've been to in the area is Ubuntu (which I enjoyed, though it's not appropriate for this occasion).

Basically, I'd like to have the best most wonderful dining experience possible.

-- waitlisted at The French Laundry.
-- waitlisted at Cyrus
-- reservation secured at Meadowood Restuarant (though it is for a rather late time)

Also: (Cyrus has a private room available, but for our smaller group, we'd have to order some pretty stellar wines to meet their minumum charge for the room. A possibility if this is really truly our best option)

Questions for the board:
-- if all 3 were available, how would you rank them
-- if you prefer cyrus, do you prefer it to the point where you'd plunk down extra on wine to go there over meadowood?
-- am I missing a place that I should consider?
-- regardless of how you rank the 3, do you feel that Meadowood will fit the bill?

Thanks, opinionated friends of mine....
