Though a wine bar with an amazing selection, we opted for no wine after tasting wine all day long. A promised 45 minute wait only took 20 minutes for us to be seated. Busy, loud but the servers were friendly and helpful. A pulled pork and pulled chicken sandwich were amazing. We left satisfied and with sticky fingers. Many other... More

First off I have to go here as a work thing. Nice enough place if you connect with your server. But they do what there trained to do and we rarely see the real side to them. Food is lack luster. Bbq is what they say there about and is pretty good compared to the bad Bbq thru out the... More

The first thing you notice is the beautiful yet small room. Appointed with dark wood, walls lined with wine bottles, an attractive and attentive staff greets you at the door. So far so good. Next you are presented with a binder listing all the wines and food available. The key word is wines, food, not so much. I settled on... More

Great food, great atmosphere and good location. Highly recommended! Only dislike is having to share a table, but not a big problem.

Had lunch here, had the Smoked Brisket sandwich and potato salad. I was here with my new boss for a meeting. The service was overbearing. They cleared dishes before you had even finished. Guess they felt they needed to turn the table.

We went to this restaurant based on what I read on Trip Advisor. It did not disappoint. We ordered a Bar B Q and the serving was huge. Note, you will have to wait so get there early. We tried on our first night and couldn't get in. We went back the next night and waited an hour at the... More

Just moved to the Napa area and I am really pumped I found this place. The food is awesome and consistent. Their ribs and pulled pork are fantastic and they serve every meal with a variety of their home made sauces. I am a big fan of whiskey and this place has tons of it. If you fall in love... More

Wanted a less formal meal after a day of wine tasting. Smaller establishment, but the worked to be creative combining parties to seat everyone faster. Nice beer selection. Grill being used outside. Was very busy, but service was attentive and quick.
