We stopped here for lunch on our way back to San Francisco and will definitely be back. The Cubano sandwich is seriously one of the best things I've ever eaten. Take the waiter's recommendation and order it with an egg on it. The serve one of my favorite beers, Pranqster.

I just stopped in for a quick lunch expecting a decent sandwich or salad - not here - they insist on exceeding your expectations. Everything was EXCELLENT - we were licking our chops for two days afterwards. The fried chicken wings disappeared so fast that no one could speak. The salads were well flavored and balanced. This is the only... More

This has almost become a habit, whenever we bring some visitors to St. Helena and are in a mood for a relaxed, wonderful, delicious, casual meal to show off what Napa Valley offers in dining, we almost always choose this restaurant. It is right down town on the Main ST. right smack dab in the middle, not fussy, but absolutely... More

Surprised there's no food at wineries we were lucky to have a dinner in this small but great restaurant. All the food was awesome - I only wish they bring a bigger plates with more food. Caution: a bit pricey.

We had been out at the wineries for the day and decided a meal was in order. We happened across Cook by chance. The menu is fresh and limited. The pasta was freshly made and tasty. The steak was ok, not memorable in anyway. I wouldn't say no to returning but I am eager to try other places.

The cavatelli and fettucini were freshly made and cooked well. The cavatelli sauce was a bit too spicy. Some will feel a plate of pasta at $18 is a bit much so those with a large family with young children will need to review the menu carefully. The staff was very good and not over attentive.
