Wow. Just go and experience it. Everything that they have to offer is sooo good! A lot of organic foods to choose from (farm fresh).

A friend of mine suggested we meet at Cooks - I didn't know it existed, a local that doesn't get out much! Comfortable bar stools for around the counter dining and very relaxed atmosphere. Friendly service and not imposing, as my friend and I had lots to talk about and catch up on. Great menu and I chose one of... More

I've been here for lunch on two occasions and have walked away impressed both times. Great food and prompt, friendly and attentive service. As others have pointed out, it is a small place and reservations are recommended. I want to return for dinner to give the menu a workout, as I am optimistic that the review will only improve.

This small restaurant seats about 40ish. But the food is high quality. We started with a heirloom tomato and mozzarella salad which was nicely prepared. Along with dinner we had the roasted pardoned peppers. I had not had those before and they were tasty and not spicy. Being a fan of risotto, I had the dish of the day, which... More

I came here with my family on holidays and we had a very nice moment. I like the Italian bistro atmosphère of the place, and the food was delicious. Our hotel forgot to make a proper reservation, but the Cook staff accommodated with no problem. Recommended.

Cook comes highly recommended by many locals and we can see why. Our meal was excellent and the service was fast and attentive. Very good Italian menu items to choose from. It's sort of a small restaurant so seating is limited and reservations on almost any night are required. Expect to spend about $100 for dinner for 2 with a... More

Such great food with house made pastas, daily fish specials, yummy wines, fresh apps and salads, with seasonal if not weekly changes. Can be way TOO LOUD in the back, you can't even hear yourself think, but the front is better and the bar is great. They used to be just beer and wine, but now you can get basic,... More

Cook is a small place that turns out some of the best pasta dishes I have ever had. Consistently excellent food, friendly staff, great local wine list. There are two tables in the front that are hard to reserve so think about sitting at "the bar."

Amazing burger, great casual spot after the lux and lush of most of our other dining experiences in Napa. Great spot for a quick, tasty bite. Cool wine list and craft beer list too.

After reading all the reviews I thought I would venture out of Yountville and try this restaurant. The food was very average and dishes were simple and bland. We had the caprese salad to start , the tomatoes were delicious as well as the dressing, but the mozzarella was like rubber, could not cut or chew this. The main course... More
