We enjoyed a salad and two burgers. The staff was friendly and the food was very good. We would recommend this place to anyone coming from Napa towards northern California. You can bring your own bottle of wine although I am not sure about any fees to open it

We have not had a bad meal at Rutherford Grill, been here every time we've visited northern California, in the past 15 years. We love their specials. Great outdoor space, with rocking chairs and bar near a roaring fire while we wait to be seated. Their skillet jalapeno (sweet) cornbread is to die for. Their steak or roasted chicken are... More

We enjoyed drinks on the patio bar before we were seated for our reservations. We have eaten here before and enjoyed the food and the service staff. The staff are very professional. Their cornbread is the bomb! You should make reservations if you want to eat at Rutherford's Grill. It gets crowded fast. We have stopped by without a reservation... More

Busy place, make a reservation! So worth the wait if you don't reserve. A must is the spinach artichoke dip appetizer, yummy! Great food, busy atmosphere and friendly staff.

This restaurant came highly recommended by friends so we tried it for lunch. I heard the ribs are the best menu item, however we weren't in the mood to get messy so I ordered a burger. Granted, I ordered a burger but I still don't see what all the hype is about. My friends ordered other entrees including the bangers... More

I had a very nice dinner in Napa Valley’s restaurant. Prime filet and Napa wine pairing was absolutely beautiful. As Inglenook Winery is near to the restaurant, I chose Inglenook. That is a really good decision. It was happy experience for me to choose harmony of food and wine at the vineyard.

The food was very tasty. We waited over an hour and a half for our table though. We did make reservations earlier in the day, but the wait staff kept insisting that people were just lingering. Bartenders made some excellent cocktails to keep us busy. The hostess Dept needs to do a better job at seating.

We sat outside. Good was great and wonderful atmosphere. You can make a reservation which is definitely recommended. The kale Caesar was great and my husband enjoyed the French dip. The location is perfect with many wineries within a stone's throw.

Thank M J
