Description: Cindy Pawlcyn’s Wood Grill & Wine Bar brings to south St. Helena the classic American fare that has made her Mustards Grill and Cindy’s Backstreet Kitchen Napa Valley legends. Nicknamed CP’s, the menu showcases Pawlcyn’s inimitable talent for fresh, tantalizing American Wine Country comfort food with made-from-scratch dishes such as Sweet Crispy Pork Belly, Dad’s House-made Potato Chips with bleu cheese dip, Brown Derby Cobb salad, Napa Cab Braised Short Ribs, Niman Ranch Burger with Cindy’s Secret Sauce, and West Coast Crab Roll. An award-winning wine program features the largest by-the-glass wine list in the Napa Valley as well as the signature ‘Vintner Splash’ on Saturday nights where local boutique vintners share complimentary tastes of their wines. The light-filled contemporary setting, family-friendly kids’ menu and large tree-shaded patio for outdoor dining (with live music Thursday nights) make the restaurant an instant Napa Valley classic.

I had the crab special in a chili oil - it was sooooo wonderful the entire table shared it with me. The burgers were out of this world and definitely big enough to share. Loved the eggplant fries.

We visited a few wineries and really needed a quick snack to keep us going through our next few stops. We ended up ordering a full meal because we had to try out the tasty items on the menu. We started with chowder stuffed clams, they were very similar to stuffed quahogs in Cape Cod. They were great and 3... More

After hearing such wonderful things about Cindy Pawlcyn's restaurants, we were looking forward to trying her Wood Grill and Wine Bar. It did not disappoint. I had amazing short ribs in a chocolate and chile sauce that was just the right sweet/savory combo and my husband had an amazing pork chop with a delicious apple and pear chutney on top.... More

This place is convenient and attractive and comfortable, but the food isn't anything to write home about. We did enjoy the eggplant fries, even though they were a bit greasy, but he chicken sandwich was over-dosed with garlic. The service at lunch was good, although the place was almost empty. The wait-staff seem to have been trained to use the... More

If you are a fan of Cindy Pawlcyn's restaurants, do not miss the Wood Grill and Wine Bar. Delicious and perfectly prepared dishes in a warm yet modern setting are presented by friendly and knowledgeable wait staff who work hard to make your visit perfect. Try the duck confit salad - the best I've ever had.

A trip to the wine country would not be complete without stopping here. It was the best meal we had on our 4 day stay in the area. We started our meal with the gem salad with blue cheese dressing - nice chunks of blue cheese dressed romaine and flavorful cherry tomatoes. I have not had such a great dressing... More

After a full day of wine tasting, I wasn't really that hungry or inspired to eat a big meal. We didn't want to drive too far so we noticed that the parking lot had spaces, knew the name and figured we would give it a try. The place was empty except for a couple of tables outside. We opted to... More

Evening started off well with great service from the bar while we waited for a table. There was 8 in our group. Sat outside which was our choice but they need more heaters. Brought our own wine with a $15 corkage. Reasonable. The waitress steered us wrong with the pasta feature. 4 of us ordered it and all were disappointed.... More

I'm really sorry we disappointed you and your party the other night at Cindy Pawlycn's Wood Grill & Wine Bar. It's especially unfortunate that our server's enthusiasm for our daily pasta special didn't translate into satisfied bellies for you and your party. Thanks for taking the time to review us, we take our customers feedback seriously and will be looking... More
