Very good, but bellow my expectations

Some friends recommended us the restaurant, and due to the fact that it belongs to the CIA we created a whole expectation of what we would get. For us it would be the highest spot in our trip to Napa. I mean, of course it was good, but it just didn't click. It didn't make us breathless... But... read more

We've been at Greystone multiple times and enjoy it every time. Great food, great service, and fun ambience. This time we had special dietary needs and they were able to accommodate all needs (dairy free, gluten free, and egg free) from appetizer to dessert. We will certainly be returning. Keep in mind that all staff are students practicing new skills.... More

It's all about learning and that extends to your experience. Your not the test subject for there learning curve, you are the focus. Top notch well crafted and always surprising. Make sure you have wine with your meal. Everything is crafted for your enjoyment. You will not be disappointed.

We didn't know it at the time, but we booked for the night before graduation. The atmosphere was fantastic, the students were there with their families running around and the restaurant was full and the menu was super. The student-prepared menu was really good. My starter had the best poached egg I ever had in my life by chef Marcello.... More

First let me comment on the service. I realize that these are all students training to be chef, well I can tell you that the service is about as good as anywhere you can ever go. For tonight's meal we had 2 appetizers one of them was the smoked duck breast flavor was ridiculous. The other was a steelhead trout... More

Great dinner as usual in a great setting with lots of energy but quiet enough to fully enjoy your companions. Food as always is the best without being too complex or "foody" - some chefs seem like they just want to show off with their choice of ingredients. The wait staff are very well trained and can answer all your... More

It was fun watching the culinary students prepare and serve our meals. Student waitstaff were friendly and shared their experience when asked. Food was exceptional.

We always enjoy eating at Greystone. The price is reasonable and the food ranges from good to exceptional. You can request recipes and try them yourself--warning, they will be challenging! This past fall the students took over the entire management of the restaurant. Because that reduced the staffing levels, hours have been cut. Lunch is no longer served. Dinner is... More

The students do all the cooking and serving here. Food was pretty good, the students ranged from nervous to very fun. A good way to spend a night out different from high-end dining.
