Extensive menu, interesting options. Our dinners were excellent -- salmon and green salad. And of course, a huge wine selection. We sat outside -- the view and ambiance was unparalleled! A bit pricy, but you do get what IOU pay for here

If you are looking for views this is it!! Rustic's food and bar are great..bring your own wine and pay the corkage after wine tasting.. Remember to order the potato dish..and the veal chop has to be the best in Ca.

When we read about the Tavola dinner, we were expecting an intimate event with a small group of people sitting around a long table, being served family style. This was not the case, but we were not disappointed. We had made reservations for 5:00 p.m., which was the first seating of the evening. We were seated shortly after 5 at... More

A walk around the Francis Ford Coppola Winery was enhanced by movie memorabilia from Coppola's award winning films, making this winery an ideal destination for families (they even have juice boxes at the wine tasting bar for young children.) Lunch at the Rustic restaurant was fantastic! Sitting outside on the terrace under a wisteria draped arbor overlooking the vineyard made... More

We live locally and have always had mixed feelings about the transformation of this property from Souverain Winery to Coppola Wines. We have dined here for lunch on several occasions, personal and on business since they opened some years ago now. Family of 4 adults had lunch on a weekend -- reservations are necessary/advisable. Server was friendly, engaging, attentive --... More

The food was not that great but the views on the patio were to die for, overlooking the vineyards. But I should have listened to the waiter who tried to talk me out of ordering the pizza. It was limp and tasteless.

Taking over the location of the old Souverain restaurant, Rustic has perhaps the very best outdoor dining location in all of wine country, on a hill overlooking the vineyards and Mount St. Helena. By all means try to dine outside if the weather permits. We have had dinner inside at night and the dining room is very noisy. But outdoors... More

what's with the two bread balls you get in a bag! most restaurants give enough bread so you don't have to buy more, but they will sell you another bag for $3.00, how tight. I had a pasta dish for $17 and it was a small dish and nothing else came with it ,and it wasn't that good. Coppola runs... More

Our group of 10 had lunch and after a brief mix up we were seated and service was fine. The food was very good although the portions on some things were huge. We appreciated separate checks, very accommodating! Would come back again.
