- Best grilled pork ribs ever - Live view on the big chicken roaster grill - Separate "wine room" Was recommended by a senior manager of ours, and was absolutely worse the trip there!

We go to the Rutherford Grill everytime we visit the Napa Valley. It is delicious! We live in the Virginia area and fly out to visit our wineries. This place is great for lunch; though, you have to get there early!! It fills up in the blink of an eye! It opens for lunch at 11:30am and you have to... More

Great food! We enjoyed a nice bottle of wine we brought (no corkage) with a great lunch. Chicken sandwich,French Dip (my husband loved) , veggie plate (no one could get over the cornbread), and the monstrous veggie burger. We heard about how good the ribs are, so my husband cannot wait to return

My wife and I really like Rutherford Grill. You really need a reservation and it's quite loud inside but the food is very reliably great and the service, while sometimes slow, never disappoints. The Jalapeno Cornbread is to die for and their filet is absolutely fantastic. Everything else we've tried has been good too.

Loved the Kale salad with the peanut vinaigrette and the house made veggie burger. Didnt expect the attention to detail. The focaccia was awesome as well!

My fourth trip to Napa, have driven by Rutherford Grill several times each trip, but I usually don't take time to stop for lunch. Since I had a free hour or so between tastings this trip, I decided to give Rutherford Grill a try. I arrived a little before noon, snuggled into a seat at the bar, (although I was... More

We had a wonderful meal at Rutherford Grill. The steak and ribs were delicious, the service was good, the wine list excellent. But the set-up and the atmosphere felt more like an overpriced Diner. We did not enjoy sitting at a booth.

The Rutherford Grill is one of our favorite stops when we are in the Napa/Rutherford area ... but plan on waiting. I don't think I have ever been here when this place is not packed with diners. The service this trip was okay, but nothing out of the ordinary ... but then again, the place was packed. Food quality was... More

The reviews overall were excellent & we were hungry for lunch after doing a nice tour at a local winery. I chose the Rotisserie Chicken, described as wood-fire roasted in its own juices, served with mashed potatoes colcannon. I received a large chunk of chicken, part of it very, very dry, part of it all around the bone, pink and... More

Other than the wait, which speaks to the Grill's popularity, we have only very good things to say about the Rutherford Grill. The ribs were perfect, and the steak was expertly cooked. We were a party of 4 and everyone was happy.
