While visiting friends in Napa between winery visits they took us here for lunch. Didn't understand ordering cornbread as an appetizer until I tasted it. Do not, I repeat, do NOT miss an opportunity to taste this. Just wonderful! Soup of the day was mushroom/artichoke and the serving so large I did not need the ala carte enchilada but I... More

Had checked out available restaurants before we left on our trip and made reservations here for lunch. So glad we did. The place was packed, but we seated in a timely manner. The menu was varied and priced adequately. I had the french dip and it was over the moon good. Not left over roast beef, fresh prime rib. Great... More

The general manager Cameron Shaw commented to my post and sent us a gift card for our 2 meals. We thought we would give them another chance as the food has been consistently good for over 20 years. Because of a busy work schedule it was Labor Day when we tried again. Hurray', "It's back to normally delicious". Something was... More

We had dinner here one evening during our wine tasting weekend. Nice atmosphere and relaxing after a "long, hard" day of wine tastings! A very good selection of all kinds of food, including vegetarian dishes which were incredibly seasoned. Most restaurants don't do "vegetables" very well, and Rutherford grill did.

Recommended to us by our innkeeper (Tim @ Larkmead Inn). Settled in to the rockers with a drink outside while waiting for what we thought would be 45 min. The place was packed. We were seated in about 15 min as we were only two people. Portions are generous so we split the heirloom tomato salad, skillet cornbread and mixed... More

Nestled amongst Napa Valleys winerys and only a couple of miles from the Camus winery. No corkage fee to bring your own wine. As our party was being seated, I noticed virtually every table we passed had ordered the babyback ribs. Given the visual recommendation we did the same. The "problem" with the ribs is that they are so tender... More

Awesome food, and friendly service. We stopped here between wineries. Great place for lunch. We ate outside. A little noisy, but protected from the road.

Must get the skillet cornbread. Heirloom tomato salad can be good. Roast beef is quite good, but share it or take leftovers home to Doggie. Beware the long lines.

I've been here a number of times over the years and always enjoy it. Great food, nice atmosphere and friendly service--all of which accounts for the wait on some occasions. Stopped by for lunch and ate on the outdoor patio. Beautiful setting. Enjoyed the bread and olive plate, followed by the steak and enchilada entree and the BBQ ribs. Always... More

The restaurant is very popular. The bar seats were full for lunch. The wait was well worth it. We had the French Dip Sandwich which was excellent.
