The restaurant is owned by Hillstone Group (Houstons, Bandera, etc) and has a very broad menu for its size. The place is often packed with tourists, so its best to go during the slower mid afternoon or show up early for dinner. There is never corkage so you can bring your own wine (which in wine country is not hard... More

My wife and I have been going to the grill for the last 25 years and we have seen very little change over the years.Of course chefs and waiters have changed and have tried their best to keep the same quality dishes . We had smoke salmon and house salad and both were very tasty. The service is fast and... More

My wife and I have been going to the RG for 20 years. They have changed owners and managers more than a few times but the food remained untouched. We went up Saturday for a late lunch ordered our usual Chicago artichoke dip and cheeseburger for me and vegi burger for her. The dip never came and my burgers meat... More

the artichoke was the star and the onion rings were sweet and not greasy--the french dipped sandwiches were to die for-

My husband and I went to Rutherford Grill for lunch. We had a bit of wait for an outside table but were happy to wait at the bar with a drink. The staff was very courteous and honest about the wait time. The interior decor is rustic yet very beautiful. When we received our table outside it was wonderful, with... More

What a wonderful experience. The service was fantastic-and I come from a family of restaurant servers and industry workers. The staff took such great care of us and the food was wonderful.

recently had dinner here as a return diner. We had the tenderloin steak and the rib eye steak entrees. Both were very special and was able to change my side dishes ordered and appreciated that gesture. No corkage fee at this restaurant but please bring a decent bottle of wine and don't insult them with a really low end bottle.... More

Great service and excellent food. We were told to go to the Rutherford grill by a couple at the Napa Visitor Center and we loved it! We had the ribs, French dip and the vegetable plate, all we're amazing! The food was pricey ($20 for French dip) but I would definitely go back. Our waitress was very attentive and even... More

Have you ever had a waiter who truly acted like they didn't want to be there? That was the poor experience we had at this restaurant. My prime rib was good but have had better. The waiter would be gone for 10 minutes without giving any service. He never checked on us after the meal was delivered by someone else.... More
