“Great restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012 via mobile

The ostrich burger was one of the best things I've ever had. The staff was friendly and the other dishes were also quite tasty.

“Good atmosphere, great staff and nice food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

Is this the best restaurant in Napa - I have no idea! All I can say we visited and had a very good time with good company and nice food in pleasant surroundings. The place had a definate buzz about it and nothing was too much trouble for anybody. It seemed a foody and wind buff type of place but noone was snobish or aloof about it and we had a good time. Acid test - would I go back - certainly! Would I recommend it - I guess I am doing! Did I walk out and think - rip off. No I didnt! :)

“Fun Place..Great Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 10, 2012

What a great find while we were in Napa. I'm glad we made a reservation because they were quite crowded even on a Monday night.

They had a nice wine list and even a decent selection by the glass. For food we had...
-Truffle popcorn with marcona almonds- we downed that in about 5 minutes after it hit our table. Wow!
-Barrota- we get this pretty much everywhere that has it and this was fabulous. It was super creamy and served with a delicious grilled bread and side of tapenade.
-Charcuterie- this was so tasty. The pork rillette was so flavorful.
-Quack and Cheese- this was mac 'n cheese with duck. And yes, it was even better than it sounds.
- Twix- A dessert worth the calories. I was so tempted to lick the plate.

A wine bar with excellent food. A must stop while you are in Napa!

Terrific food! Would go there again. Had the Ostrich burger and truffle fries, totally amazing! Very reasonably priced for the quality of food. Best we had in Napa.
