Surprising find for great Napa tastes!

We went to the Rutherford Grille at the recommendation of a local storekeeper. It was an oasis of taste and value in a very expensive food world. We loved the grouper sandwich with an extraordinary fresh local cabbage slaw on the bun. Service was excellent, and even though the place was slammed... read more

This restaurant was recommended to us for a late lunch by the servers at three different wine tastings so we figured it must be good. It was. Quite reasonably priced for the area and nice portions. Although we didn't need it, as we'd been tasting wine all day, the no corkage fee was apparently a very popular option as almost... More

We mostly eat lunch here as we mainly indulge in just appetizers. The grilled artichoke is the best we have every had. The cornbread is something not to be missed. We had the focaccia and olives this time and they were amazing. It is usually busy but always worth the wait.

we were cycling through the Napa Valley and stopped in by chance to the Rutherford Grill. It was so good. We each had the Kale with roasted chicken salad which was delicious with their famous cornbread. Wonderful meal. For dinner we were going to go to another restaurant but decided to return to Rutherford Grill. We sat at the bar... More

They had many items to choose from on the menu. The four of us enjoyed our meal. They serve ample portions of sandwiches and salads. There is a lovely patio to relax and enjoy your meal. You can pick from an array of wines from the local vineyards.

A recommendation from Napa Valley artist,Joan Tillotson, this is truly a restaurant you might drive by thinking it was a fast food breakfast place. Beautiful booth, a bar that dominated the center of the establishment, a staff that hovered and took excellent care of their customers. Loved their dress, white shirts, black aprons and jeans.....says something about the management staff... More

Very good food. The best part was the Mexican coke from a bottle. I had a burger it was tender and juicy and the fries were good too. The portions are somewhat large so come hungry. I recommend this place

I had a BBQ plate with ribs and chicken. The ribs were truly fall-off-the-bone. Chicken was very juicy and well prepared. My friend had the burger and really liked it. Staff was very friendly, and it seemed everyone pitched in to help each other, in a very non-obtrusive way (I've seen that done before in a VERY annoying way, so... More
