The restaurant upstairs is very nice but it's the outdoor seating & bar downstairs that make this one great. Tons of great cocktails--try the Cucumber Collins--delicious & gorgeous!

This was recommended by our concierge, Lisa, at the Harvest Inn. This is a local favorite spot and we could see why. They have indoor and outdoor seating. Food was delicious and had great menu options.

We stopped by late afternoon/early evening for a quick bite, having passed the place several times and seeing a nice outside patio. When we asked to be seated there, they said they weren't serving on the patio and placed us in the downstairs bar. While almost empty, service was unattentive. We had some oysters, and the G&G burgers, which were... More

There are so many high quality restaurants in St. Helena, this was not on my radar until someone we were talking to recommended it. And I am glad they did. We sat inside (wood decor with black furniture) while the large outdoor seating area was quite full. After dinner, I checked out the bar in the basement. Dark wood, three... More

After a long day of wine tasting, this was the perfect place to decompress. I had the famous G&G burger with bone marrow atop. The burger was amazing. We also had the squid salad and smoked corn croquets for starters. All very good. Don't miss the downstairs bar. We initially sat in the main restuarant where our server may have... More

We started with sensational cocktails, our party of 7 enjoyed 7 different cocktails and each was a delight! Dinner had a tough act to follow and it rose to the occasion! Each bite, each dish was perfectly prepared and presented.

Really great thought out cocktail menu with great reinventions of classic cocktails. We came here with a large group after a rehearsal wedding dinner and were very impressed as most of the guests were in the service industry. Great time and great service.

GG burger tasteless, watermelon and shrimp salad overdone with Thai Chili sauce. GG burger changed for flat iron steak: cooked as requested, tender, but tasteless. Bus boy refilled our wine.
