Hungry after wine tasting?! Great stop!

So after last call at Napa Valley wineries on Highway 29- you're hungry, right? But most restaurants have finished lunch service and dinner is two hours away-yikes! Take the hungry crowd here for good, dependable viddles! The grilled artichoke and dip rocks! Always delisch is the prime rib dip... read more

The food was excellent and was more 'fine dining' than the grill name might imply. There was no corkage fee for bringing our own wine, and as such, that kept the bill reasonable. The restaurant was crowded so making a reservation a day ahead is a good idea.

We stopped here for lunch while visiting Napa. It was a very good place to stop. There were 4 of us and everyone raved about their food. Service was very good. I definitely will go back.

Great place for lunch, dinner or apps and a cocktail. My favorite, the artichoke. Very busy, But pretty fast turn around. I've eaten there since they opened and never was disappointed. A great caveat is no corkage fee.

If you find yourself starting wine tasting early in the day, you may be hungry for some comfort food to provide a break for later tastings. Rutherford Grill is an excellent choice. The portions are large which means you can eat "family style" and you will want to so you can taste everything. We ordered Kale salad, pork ribs, fish... More

Service is excellent, food is great. I love the location and the fact that you can sit outside while enjoying a glass of wine and the beautiful view.

And that's for the restaurant as well as the staff who are simply remarkable. While waiting for our table to become available, we enjoyed a couple of cocktails at the sunny and spacious patio. And we got rewarded when we sat for lunch. Both the French dip sandwich and the hamburger were fresh, juicy and tasty. The dessert selection was... More

We had a good lunch with well prepared and nicely decorated food in this rather well decorated restaurant. The salads were well put together and very fresh and the meat was tender and exactly balanced spiced. Recommended!
