Where do I start? I loved everything about this place! The restaurant is rather small but not loud and has a warm setting. You feel sophisticated but not stuck up when you walk in.. that's the best way I can describe it. I went with my best friend, we both live in Napa and like to save up a little and go to a nice dinner for a girls night to catch up.
We started with the Butternut Squash Risotto Balls. WOAH! Creamy, crispy, ever so slighty sweet from the squash but with a generous kick at the end (warms you up on the cold night). The pesto they serve with it was divine, I loved it so much that the actual dipping sauce, a sweet meaty marinara, went completely ignored. More pesto next time Carpe Diem! (We were THIS CLOSE to ordering the Truffle Parm fries, because truffles come on, but since those fries are a side for one of the entrees we decided to go with the risotto balls. Sure glad with that dicision)
For dinner I ordered the Filet Mignon Steak Skewers and my friend ordered the Ostrich Burger. My steak skewers were tender and delicious, and despite being labeled a small plate I was plenty full. Joy of joy's it came with more of that pesto yuuuumm and was plated on a small bed of greens. The waitress was very nice and when I asked for a recommendation for a wine to go with my meal she recommended a perfect syrah. If only I could remeber which one it was she recommended it went perfectly with the steak skewers and the spicy pesto. I tried a bit of my friends Ostrich burger and was VERY surprised! It was so good. juicy and flavorful and everything they put on that burger enhanced it beautifully. Brie cheese and cranberry and some other yummyness. Just try it, it's good.
In terms of pricing, I usually can't afford much but I'm a total foodie so I'm willing to save up and pay for something that's worth it. I walked in with low expectations because I hadn't heard much buzz about this place and Napa tends to generate restaurants that price very very high because they can get away with it. I was very pleasantly surprised by the prices and even more surprised when I actually tasted the food. It's not cheap by any means but the value was there in my mind. It wasnt too expensive and the food was %150 worth it. Just go you'll be happy you did :)
