Worth a visit

My bride and I stopped here last night for dinner. First let me say that their wine by the glass pour is generous. Service was attentive and timely. Food arrived quickly and was cooked as ordered. My wife had a kale and chicken salad and I had a burger. Prices were very reasonable.

We did a day trip to Napa and stopped for lunch for my friend's Mom's 80th Birthday. My friend had the chicken which was very moist & juicy. Her Mom had the filet which was cooked to perfection & as soft as butter, she said it melt in her mouth. I had the salmon which again was cooked just right.... More

The restaurant was recommended to us by personnel at Cakebread Cellers. It was a perfect lunch place. My husband and I shared a salad and also shared a burger. Very nice high quality food and a great atmosphere. It is right up the road from Cakebread. The BV tasting room is right behind the Rutherford Grill.

Super good food worth every ounce you may put on. Management has a no reservation policy which is a pain but is also worth the wait.

We dropped in after a tasting at Beaulieu Vineyards, which is located behind Rutherford Grill. We had the artichoke and spinach dip, it was served warm and was very tasty. I had the BBQ ribs with the chicken and spinach and brussels sprouts. My meal was delicious, and the sprouts were the best I have ever eaten. The chicken was... More

Friends had told me not to miss Rutherford Grill and boy were they correct. We had a girl's weekend and tried; grilled artichoke (amazing), deviled eggs (really good but a little on the sweet side just an FYI), french dip (the BEST!), BBQ ribs - great, and the roast chicken equally great. Katrina, our server suggested the spaghetti squash as... More

When our group of 5 arrived at the Rutherford Grill for lunch at noon, the line was out the door and the entry way was clogged with people waiting. This is always a good sign and thankfully we had a reservation. We were seated almost immediately in a large, partially enclosed booth which blocked ambient noise and gave us a... More

It is truly sad when a restaurant begins to decline under the weight of its own popularity. You know, when prices go up, portion sizes get small, food quality wanes and service is focused on turning the table versus customer satisfaction. My wife and I dined at Rutherford Grill this evening with another couple and their son. We ordered grilled... More

This is really a simple but great place to eat. The food is basic fare but fresh and wonderfully prepared. The staff very friendly. Do I recommend it? Yes, but one small thing got my goat and I wish that the management will read this posting and notice that we do pay attention. What bothered me? When I was presented... More

A friend we were visiting in Sonoma took us to the Rutherford Grill for lunch while we were out wine tasting. Beautiful spot and food was excellent. They have a large bar area where you can imbibe and/or eat as well as good size dining room. Had the best wedge salad I've ever ordered: crisp, lovely dressing and surrounded by... More
