It's not just staffed by the students, but by professional chefs, including the instructors. Very cool inside, like a Tuscan castle. The entire kitchen is central and open so you can observe students. Pro tip - get the charcuterie app, one of the best I have ever had. You can taste olive oil too which is cool. And free valet...

The food at Greystone was quite good. Our dessert was amazing! The service is a little peculiar -- kind of slow and not quite right -- but they are students from the CIA who are there to learn so it kind of makes sense. Definitely worth visiting.

Had a great Dinner, Great service, and very close to where we stayed. The CIA folks are ready to go out and start their own deal. Really liked this place !

I had heard great things about this restaurant but also read some recent reviews that said when they transitioned to students having a larger role than the supervising professional chefs, the quality went down ... my friend and I did not have that experience at all. The food quality was fantastic - every bit from the appetizer, salad, entrees, and... More

We have driven by Greystone many times and admired the grounds and building and finally decided to give it a try. We were served by a CIA student named James who recommended that we start with the Greystone Garden Salad, which was delicious. I ordered the Brick–Roasted Chicken and my companion decided to try the Wild Pacific King Salmon. They... More

While the restaurant has good food and attentive service, I do not think that it is exceptional comparing to other good restaurants in the Napa valley. Still, i would recommend this place because of the excellent location and the view you have, especially when seating outside close to sunset.

We were looking forward to our meal at the CIA. As might be expected the grounds were impressive with the large stone building set into the green hill side. We arrived 45 minutes early to explore the other parts of the CIA beside the Wine Spec. Greystone restaurant. The store has an impressive assembly of cooking utensils and a ton... More

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
