Gotta love that CBK frequently has vintners and others hanging at the bar with dirty boots and clothes...no problem! Let the perfectly dressed city folks enjoy the tables and the locals can enjoy the bar. Marty will take great care of you in the drinks and food department. Always interesting daily specials. Don't miss the beet salad! Several takeout orders... More

Visited this restaurant for lunch with friends. The menu gave a good selection of items and the dishes we had were excellent! Staff were attentive and the meals arrived fairly quickly. I recommend having a "Screaming Viking" to drink, pleasantly surprised!!

We were told to come here for the amazing desserts and were very happy with them but were blown away with the freshness and flavors of the fish dishes!

We ae here one evening. The restaurant is located off Highway 29 (not far), a bit up north the street just east of the highway. Menu had some variety, quality good. We enjoyed our meals. Just watch that you park in a spot designated for this restaurant. (We didn't see any ticketing activity, but it's best to not risk it.)

We have eaten at this gem for a number of years now. Great service, fresh ingredients, and thoughtful preparation have been present consistently. A very popular spot on weekends so reservations strongly recommended. We have been able to squeeze in as walk ins and there is a large bar if you don't mind eating on a stool. It can be... More

Great little restaurant in St Helena. Wonderful service. Good amount of gluten free options. Staff knowledgeable about cross contamination and can work with chef to easily change around a dish to suit you. Very enjoyable experience.

We had a nice quick lunch on their outdoor patio. The food, ambiance and service was excellent. I would like to return and linger over dinner next time.
