The positives: our student server was well spoken, thoughtful & very attentive. The restaurant is beautiful. Our entrees were delicious. The negatives: Signage is terrible. It was difficult to determine where were supposed to park, where the entrance is, where the store is. Apparently there is valet parking. We drove up a steep hill to it but we were early... More

This is on the campus of the CIA. From the front staff, to the waiters/waitresses, to the chefs --- all CIA students in their last months of training. Very friendly and informative about the menu. Wine choices were excellent. Food was very flavorful. Not many options on the menu which was fine. The place looked enormous and probably could have... More

This was a great choice for a mini wedding reception that we had last Saturday. We had a destination style wedding in SF and wanted to have some friends (25) help us celebrate in Napa. We happen to be foodie type people and I enjoy wine, so we ended up deciding on trying out Greystone, which we have wanted to... More

We went for lunch during the week in February and they weren't too busy. We chose to sit at the bar overlooking the kitchen which was fun to watch! The food was delicious with good flavor. To save money we went for a light lunch which was perfect! Afterwards it is fun to walk around the culinary institute and see... More

We ate out on the terrace and had the wine pairings with the fixed menu. Each course was very interesting and delicious (the melon salad was a nice surprise). Service was a bit slow, but that just gave us more time to enjoy the views. Dinner was also very reasonably priced, especially for the area. We had a fabulous experience... More

I'd seen mixed reviews on this restaurant, but count me in for 5 *! This adventure was a birthday gift for my wife's parents. We all agreed that it was worth the 90 mile drive. We had a 5 pm reservation on Saturday, Jan 4, 2014, and we were treated to a 4-course meal. The bread was served first and... More

Incredible food! I would give it five stars for the food. Some of the best I've ever tasted. Now imagine you’re sitting at your table enjoying your first course and then somebody yells at the top of their lungs, “Dessert!!” So much for the atmosphere. Why anyone would think it’s OK to yell anything that loud at a nice restaurant... More

We were recommended to visit CIA by a couple of people we met in San Francisco, otherwise we may have missed this little gem. A beautiful sunny day was perfect for outdoor dining. Our waiter was very knowledgable and we decided to trust his pairing of wine to our food. I am pleased to say his choices were excellent !... More

Our dinner started by meeting our waiter. A young man from Kansas studying to be a chef. We asked about his education and he explained the program to us. This isn't just about cooking. This school goes through a varied range of food preparation techniques and it starts at the basics no matter how advanced you THINK you are :... More
