Got a nice recommendation to come here and were so glad we did. This market is heaven for food-loving folks and when we saw they had an oyster bar we made a beeline. Had a dozen oysters and champagne and a tomato salad for dinner. Yes, we're fancy like that!! ;) Oysters were perfect - tasted like the sea and... More

I was hungry for raw oysters & found this place on the Internet. When we arrived we realized we've been here before. It was located in Oxbow Publix Mkt. We ordered a dozen of assorted raw oysters in the half shell, 4 cooked oysters, split a bowl of clam chowder. Friendly staff. Those fresh oysters were to die for. It... More

The service has greatly improved since the addition of new servers and bussers. Kuddos to the Mexican American ladies who work the weekends. They are much more attentive to guest needs than the servers. Promote! The Farm Style Oysters were great! The construction of the flood wall outside has taken the little view the restaurant had and will likely encroach... More

Stopped here on the way to a vineyard tour. Oysters were delicious and there was a an interesting variety from which to choose. Grilled cheese was tasty - a little bland and very drippy so be careful when eating it! The area surrounding the restaurant is nothing special but it located in a nice little mall-type building that has a... More

Tray of 24 oysters, fresh from Tomales Bay and Washington State. Delicious plate of sweet heirloom tomatoes with onion slivers. Fresh bread and butter. We sat at the counter, watching the shuckers and cooks. In the fabulously foodie Oxbow Market. After our oyster lunch, we indulged in a couple scoops of Three Twins organic ice cream.

Great oysters, pasta and salads, fun atmosphere and friendly service...what else is there while you're on vacation? An easy, casual dining experience in the Oxbow Marketplace. We'll certainly eat here again on our next trip to Napa.
