Amazing cocktails.

We went for the cocktails and were not disappointed. The cocktail menu was quite extensive...I was glad the bar tender just asked what kinds of drinks i liked and made me one. The food was nothing special but certainly hit the spot. If I'm ever back in St. Helena, I will head back there.

We picked Goose & Gander for lunch on the recommendation of a local. Although we ate outside on a beautiful hot day we went through the restaurant and made a stop at the bar on the way to our table. The decor was so warm and inviting! If I hadn't been so happy to see the sun I would have... More

Spent a great evening of dining on small plates with the quail being the prize of the evening -really really good like all the other small plates we had - and the selection of wine from the region led us to visit 2 of the wineries nearby. When dining pick an outside table away from the building (and near a... More

I found this restaurant on a list of Zagat's 12 most essential restaurants to visit in Napa. It did not disappoint. While the restaurant is physically located a little bit off the corner and is easy to miss, I wasn't glad I didn't give up on the confusing directions my GPS provides. The craft cocktails wowed us and set the... More

Loved the newly-redone restaurant, just off Highway 29. Great little bar downstairs, and an open, interesting space upstairs. Service was excellent, wine list and menu choices were interesting, and food was impeccably prepared. Loved it, we'll be back.

I can't review the food, as we came here for a late afternoon drink and snack - but the atmosphere was fun and the location is convenient to lots of shops. We did order a round of the smoked corn croquettes, which were terrific. The pisco was a very light, refreshing drink and not too strong. The patio is very... More

If you love a good cocktail, don't miss. This building itself is neat, bar downstairs and interesting restaurant upstairs with an open kitchen. The menu tends towards simple, fresh meats and if you are an adventurous eater you'll love it! Everyone in our party enjoyed their meal greatly, and we would def go again.

The four of us are lunch here between wine tastings. All of the food was great with no complaints. We had the mushroom soup, arugula salad, cod fritter, and quail. The portions were small, but the corn fritter and cheese plates appetizers made up for the small lunch portions. It was a beautiful day so we sat on the patio... More
