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

Perfect oysters!! Loved the ambiance amist the Oxford market. We sat at the bar and had a blast watching them shuck our oysters in front of us and the barstaff was prompt and incredibly friendly!

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.

Went here with daughter, her boyfriend, and my partner. What a great adventure. Oxbow Public Market is similar to place in S.F., including the Hog Island Oyster Company. We had the 12 piece Oyster Bar Mix, the 12 piece Hog Island Sweetwater, and two orders for the grilled spicy oysters. All were so fresh! Everyone enjoyed every taste. Great waitstaff,... More

On a recent trip to Napa we visited HOG Island Oyster Co. What a cool spot. Had some great appetizers and a few dozen oysters that were to die for. I am a big oyster fan, and these farm fresh oysters they have from their own oyster farm on the coast were some of the best I've had. Thanks to... More

Stopped here after a flight and drive into Napa for some oysters and a beer. It met all the criteria and did a great job. Oysters were perfect, the beer was great, the grilled cheese was fantastic, the other food was very good. Only minor issue was some construction behind the patio which was a little noisy but nothing Hog... More
