Lunch was awesome!

I believe it was the best fish sandwich I ever ate. The Caesar salad was terrific! It was a wonderful lunch that I would recommend as your traveling through and wine tasting.

This was my first time at Napa Valley. This place was recommended to me and my friends. The prices were HIGH for drinks and dinner. It's vacation and all about the experience. The waiter at the bar was great. He was fantastic on the amount of wine he served. The waitress inside was snobby with us and denied to serve... More

Allows BYOB on your wine that you buy in the valley. Great food and atmosphere. Would go back again. Parking can be hard to fine. Fills up fast in early evening after a day of wine tasting. If you are think abouting go there pull the trigger and do it.

I must had a dinner here once I have my business trip nearby NAPA. Great service and relaxing environment. I love grilled rib-eye steak here, smoky and tasty. Out site of waiting area made people easily relaxing before dinner. Wine they served here is good quality with reasonable price.

My wife and I have eaten here several times. Every time there has been something of a wait wether its lunch or dinner time so I'd recommend making a reservation well in advance. Highly recommend the grilled artichoke appetizer. Perhaps we're boring but every time we come here this is what we order for an appetizer and have never been... More

I think my wife and I have been to the Rutherford Grill around 5 or 6 times...all for dinner. The service and food have been very consistently good. I wouldn't say "great" but really reliably good. We've had steaks, salads, different veggie dishes, and the AMAZING jalapeño cornbread. I would strongly recommend making a reservation if you can plan in... More

Have been here many times and never ever have been disappointed. Great ambiance, food and NO corkage if you bring your own wine. Excellent menu with daily specials. A place you should stop for lunch or dinner. They open at 11:30 and you should be there at that time as they are always packed.

We had dinner here our first night in Napa, we got here early around 6:15pm as we were told if you get there a bit later there would be a big line to wait in. And it actually got very busy very fast, this place is very popular. The service was very good, and very fast, we had the smoked... More
