We stopped in the bar on a sleepy December afternoon. Was only able to order off the bar food menu, not the entire menu, but what we ordered was fantastic -- the mushroom soup was outstanding, the duck fat fries were as good as they sound (!) and the cocktails were well done.

This was my first time there. It was recommended to me by a staffer at Domain Chandon. He was right, it was great! The host and staff were so wonderful. Even when I called to make my reservation, the woman asked if it was a special occasion. I told her it was and when I arrived they had a glass... More

Excellent spot for lunch. Burgers 9/10 cooked perfectly. All the appetizers were very good although I'm not sure what the radish dish is all about. Drinks are curated with the best intentions and the new Sommelier has big plans to put the Goose & Gander on the map by for must try wine lists by next year. The inside is... More

There's an $18 burger with an option for bone marrow drizzle. I chose it sans marrow. It was a solid burger, but i wouldn't get it again. Great drinks downstairs.

...just ducked in for a afternoon cocktail... We'd heard the cocktails are exceptional and innovative. And they are amazing. After looking at the menu, we decided to try the spicy prawns with polenta and the duck fat fries. I would break any diet for either. A great find in the Napa Valley! Shhhhh...

Stopped here for a late meal with friends. They loved the beers. I loved the food. Try the bone marrow appetizer. It was excellent. The burger was one of the best I've ever had and was served with duck fat shoestring fries. Pricey, but not expensive by Napa standards. We will return.

We enjoyed a late lunch here. The food and service were great. The radish appetizer was awesome. We can't wait to come back.

We had already eaten dinner and we just wanted a drink. The basement bar area was really fun and had a lot of atmosphere. We would have eaten dinner there, too, had we known. It looked very good. We'd go again anytime we're in St Helena.

We were disappointed when the Martini House closed but were excited to see what its replacement had to offer. Sat at a lovely table on the patio and had a fantastic meal, great bottle of wine, and terrific service. Prawn appetitzer and bone marrow were both great. my wife's bone-in pork with spaetzle was terrific and my meal was excellent... More
