Food Worth Waiting For

We ordered the French Dip and Rack of Ribs and were extremely pleased with the service and quality of the food. The smoke smell was awesome and the ribs just fell of the bone. The BBQ sauce was just the right amount of tang and sweetness. Normally I would not get something that I can get... read more

We had lunch here this week. My wife and I shared the Grilled Chicken salad which was really good. The salad had a good variety of greens, grilled chicken and a honey-lime dressing that included a peanut sauce giving it an asian flair. We really enjoyed it. The service was above average and very prompt.

Wow! Our group really enjoyed this restaurant. It has an upscale but very welcoming feel to it. We had to wait a few minutes to be seated even with our reservation but it was definitely worth the wait. The guacamole was some of the best I've had. My salmon was perfectly seasoned and grilled. Our waitress was fun and very... More

A very popular Hillstone Group restaurant (along with R+D Kitchen a few miles south in Yountville and the famous Houston's in Tx), there is Always a line at peak lunch and dinner times and even if the dining room isn't full the music is very LOUD. Full fat comfort food, done very well, in large portions. NO corkage fee for... More

Wonderful outside side patio with bar while you wait. Great atmosphere inside - and the best steak we had during our visit

I took my wife to celebrate her birthday. Two days before going I made a reservation, and was told that a table would not be held for us, but that we would be placed at the top of the list when we arrived. When we did arrive, we were taken immediately to table inside (our preference as it was hot... More

It's so good to have such a nice meat, near so much good wine all around the valley. Rutherford Grill is a must for everyone that want's to smooth the red wine with excellent pork chops and alike. I arrived at Sunday afternoon, even at 4 pm or 5 it was very crowded with families waiting in the baking sun.... More

We stopped here because of a recommendation and we were not disappointed. We did not have reservations and showed up at the heart of lunch hour. The place was packed and we did not want to wait 45+ minutes for a table so we opted to sit at the bar. We we lucky a couple was just leaving so we... More

We eat out quite a lot and this was a birthday lunch for two with my wife. She loves Rutherford Grill. I am a little less emotional about restaurants, unless they really stand out in some way. I expect good food when I go to a decent restaurant, so the standard of expectation is high to begin with. On this... More
