St Patrick's Day...live band, lots going on...and fortunately the bar downstairs was quiet, not too many guests. A great place for a quick, great dinner. The first bartender was terrific...i received my wine, dinner, etc with smiles and perfect service.. But then he evidently went upstairs to be with the outdoor partying crowd. What remained downstairs were two bartenders not... More

Ok, for those who are tasting in the area, and there are too many great spots to taste! Take a break and try Goose & Gander of St. Helena/Napa Valley, CA. I more than enjoy the tender and tasty Berkshire Pork "T-Bone" which was set upon curried spaetzle, cauliflower, Fuji apples, candied garlic and bacon lardons. And I paired it... More

Try a mixed drink here and munch on the best prawns available to buy in all of the north bay. They have a garlic sauce u could drink by itself. If ur in the area I strongly urge u pop in here.

First and foremost, there is no bottle of wines under $50 and that is really a shame. In Napa? really! This restaurant used to allow you to bring your own wine without charging a corkage fee (that was in fact why we decided to go). Alas, no longer, it's now $25 per 750 ml bottle. Needless to say, everyone had... More

The burger was the most decadent and amazing thing I have eaten in a long time. The marrow added to the top just elevates this burger to the next level. Duck fat fries, Need I say more!

We ate at a lot of high end, expensive and delicous restaurants while in Napa. But, this place was by far my favorite and it was one of the least expensive. We were told that we had to eat here for the bone marrow burger. This burger was the BEST burger I've ever had and this was a shared opinion... More
