Arrived at the appointed time: no one to meet or greet inside or out. Young lady appeared after about 5 mins. Last back table. 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. Had to request last of our... More

If I was still in CA I would be back there in a second! We went for the cocktails but would go back for that burger! The best burger I have EVER had, and I live in the town the burger was invented. Do yourself a favor and add the melted bone marrow, don't be scared it brings this burger... More

I'm a local and I know I will regret sharing a secret spot in the Napa Valley, but hey, I've been in everyone else's shoes when I am visiting other locales and always appreciate the advice. When my wife and I are "wined out" or we want an escape from the tourists or heat, we visit the downstairs bar at... More

We arrived early and opted to sit at the bar and have a drink. The bartender, Juan, was a great host. After a couple of drinks we decided to remain at the bar for dinner. My wife chose a burger and I selected the salmon special. We were both more than satisfied with our choices. The service was excellent and... More

My boyfriend and I thought this was the best dinner of our trip. The cocktails were imaginative and very tasty (the Scarlet Gander is a must-try) and the outdoor setting was gorgeous! It's casual yet intimate atmosphere is a perfect place to bring a date or friend. This place is great for carnivores, but if your vegetarian you don't have... More

as we walked around this great little town, we came across Goose and Gander. Such yummy food. Fried olives and stuffed dates were to die for. A must!

Outdoor or indoor dining in this historic house is a real treat. Inside it has been totally updated, outside is still traditional style. One block off St. Helena's Main Street, it is an elegant local experience. The most open and friendly staff we have ever encountered. The menu doesn't do as good a job of describing the excellent, creative food... More

Ok, I visited twice over a couple of days on recommendation of a super cool tour guide. Every single item I ate here was absolutely delicious. Also, the drinks were all delicious...especially one called the Rosemary Pear Shrub. I don't even like gin...that drink, was the beans (that's a good thing...there are no beans in it...it means it's ridiculously refreshing... More

Easily accommodated our vegetarian diet. Our waiter was excellent. A little disappointed the online menu did not match what we saw in the restaurant. Other than that, great experience!
