Nice varied menu, great value for lunch.

Enjoyed the paio setting, professional staff, quick service. Menu isn't huge but offers nice selection of salads, sandwiches and brick oven pizza. Great clam chowder. Everything is made to order so it is not hard to get a vegetarian version of the entree sales. Nice wine list and reasonable... read more

Perfect light lunch and little place to shop for presents in a perfect location. Fits right in with the rest of Yountville. If you don't have time to eat a big lunch or wait for a table, this is the place

We had a wonderful light lunch. The food was great, but we especially loved eating on the patio. It felt like eating in a garden.

We are here before heading to the wineries. The service was good and the food was delicious. The kids lunch plates are a good size. My 5 year old daughter had the grilled cheese and fruit and ate all of it. I had a pizza which is more than enough for one person. I would def recommend if you are... More

This is a lovely spot on the Napa River. It's in a garden setting and there is indoor dining also. After lunch, we like to walk the promenade along the river. It's beautiful. I hear they may get gondolas on the river!

The location is great, by the river, outdoor seating with heat lamps. Food is consistent and tasty, not a fabulous, gourmet eatery. However, I eat there often when meeting a friend for lunch.
