The outside courtyard at the rear of the premises isn't really very elegant but the service was good and the food was spot on. Parking over the road was easy. Well worth a visit.

If you are looking for a decent meal in wine country, this would be a convenient choice. Just don't expect a "wow" experience. The setting, service and food are good enough, but that's about It. But hey, am I being too picky, because the 3...More

This brasserie-style restaurant serves unfussy Bordelais food in a cozy space complete with wood lockers in which select wineries are allowed to store wine for when their owners/managers visit. So though the atmosphere is casual, it has a reputation for being a wine-industry insider spot....More

We were recommended to visit here for lunch from one of the nearby wine Chateaux and we were not disappointed. A rather formal restaurant layout and feel but with real charm. The staff were super-friendly and the quality of the cooking was excellent. I had...More
