great food and wine

My husband had the mushroom pot pie and I had a pasta dish. Both were excellent. The service was also great. This place was recommended by our hotel Wydown staff and we were not disappointed. It was also walking distance from downtown main street.

I had the Backstreet Burger and my wife had the Avocado & Papaya salad, my niece had the Adult Grilled Cheese. All the... More

We ordered the peppers and they were so good that we got a second order. The meatloaf and burger were delicious. Service was good too. Very quaint yet sophisticated atmosphere.

Each of us ordered a different meal and ALL OF US WERE UNDERWHELMED!!! Special of the day pasta (pesto) was not... More

The restaurant is off the main street in an old Victorian style house. Parking is conveniently located across the street. There is a small, shady patio for outdoor seating; inside dining areas are in the bar area, a dining room across from that, and upstairs. The burgers were delicious. My husband had a small tomato soup and an adult grilled... More

Cindy's is a nice informal restaurant in St Helena, with a homely menu, lovely staff and a great wine list. A really good place to relax after a hard day touring the vineyards!

I am meat lover but actually had a vegetarian meal. I tried the padron peppers to start. Delicious. Then I had the mushroom pot pie. Everything was amazing. The bingo oysters are great too!

Cindy's is a warm, friendly restaurant with attentive service and a broad menu. Perhaps I ordered the wrong things. My Caesar salad was substantially overdressed. Half that amount would have been more than adequate. The meatloaf was o.k. but unimaginative, covered with red BBQ sauce beside a glop of unattractive mashed potatoes. As locals we'll return, although I'll order something... More
