The restaurant is attractive with a nice outdoor patio, and the food is good, service good, but it seems to be lacking that special something that would put it more in the top class. We had the signature dishes, house made mozzarella, short ribs, even a goo..."d pasta with veal sauce, baked oysters, too much food for two people, but we're foodies. It was all good, good wine by the glass selection as well. But I could not help that feeling that the passion was missing. We went at lunch, maybe dinner is different.

"We were looking for a mid-afternoon snack, having missed lunch, and came upon La Condesa. It was a beautiful day, so we decided to sit outside at a small table on the street.

Had we more time in St. Helena, we certainly would have returned here for dinner.

The food itself was amazing. The duck was commented on by my two guest as being "the best duck they have ever had"...and they are fans of duck. The started salad with house cured salmon and a citrus forward chèvre goat cheese was light and flavorful -...
