Steak and Cab

Over the top service. The steaks were cooked perfect over open wood grill and enjoyed a nice Girard Old Vine Zin. Service and food was so good, we came back 2 nights later.

Came to Wine Country for an anniversary getaway, had dinner at Rutherford Grill to celebrate our 25th anniversary. Everything about our experience was first rate. Service was outstanding, food was excellent, atmosphere was enjoyable.

I haven't eaten at this restaurant before but love Banderas in Sacramento so we gave it drive. While the menus are different, some of it is the same. As always, the corn bread did not disappoint and is always a must when visiting Banderas as well. We had the blackened ribeye, which was amazing and cooked to perfection. A friend... More

This was a great place to stop. Kind of slow service but food worth waiting for. I had a French dip and it was amazing!! A bit pricey but typical for the area.

We make it a point to eat at Rutherford Grill ever time we go to Napa. The food is always very good. The ribs to die for. It's a fun place bar and grill but with that said I would say somewhat of a upscale bar and grill.

One of our favorite restaurants in Dallas is Houston's. It was started, I'm told, by Mr. Rutherford in Rutherford CA. Needless to say when we were in the Napa area we wanted to see where Houston's started. We were not disappointed. Some of the best food around. The menu differs from it's sister restaurants in Dallas but you will not... More

The food is, as always, excellent. We were with a couple who tried to make our server Courtneys job difficult. She was up to it and I thank her for that. Back to the food and beverage; we all had different entrees and drinks and everything was great.

Had dinner here for the fourth time in the past six years and once again it was really good. The mixed green salad to start was amazing, one of the best I've ever had - even included a deviled egg! My wife and I both had a French Dip sandwich and we agreed it was probably the best one we've... More

We had eaten there for lunch a few years back and decided to try them for dinner this time. The menu is classic American food. We had the rib roast ("Prime Rib") which is cooked on the bone. The serving is a generous bone-in cut with a side of mashed potatoes and a vegetable. The ice cream sandwich dessert was... More

Excellent food, try the kale salad, it is wonderful. I would have never tried it, but one of the customers there told us to give it a try and I'm so glad I did. The ribs are some of the best I've ever had. When we travel to Napa we always try to eat here at least twice. By far... More
