I've been there once a year for four years. Absolutely amazing! Consistently good in every dish we ate and great service. Nice wine list as well with reasonable price points.

Booked a reservation here and have to say I was surprised by the price of the food in such an expensive area within Napa Valley. The ambiance was great and the service was top notch.

From beginning to end, everything was done perfectly. We started by splitting the beet pomegranate salad ... and right away knew we were in for an exceptional culinary experience. It was marvelous .. a perfect balance of acidity (from the unexpected orange) and pomogranite sweetness, with a slab of soft goat cheese to round things out. Service was impeccable ...... More

I go here about 4 to 6 times per year and every time they consistently deliver an interesting menu and high quality product. We usually sit at the bar and have a cocktail, appetizers, and main course with a glass of wine. If you're looking for high quality at appropriate prices compared to the rest of Napa Valley, I would... More

Market is a must for lunch in St. Helena. I cannot believe I did not eat here sooner! The service is excellent and there are so many choices on the menu, from comfort food to sandwiches and salads. They even had our favorite oysters. Being downtown, it is nice to combine lunch with a tour of the art galleries and... More

Its billing is deserved. The food and wine list are first-rate, and reasonably priced for the quality. The ambiance is excellent, very quiet for a modern restaurant. And the staff were friendly and efficient.
