We called ahead for reservations after a full day of wineries. We were a group of 6 and glad we made reservations. There was a wait (usually is) but we were seated right away as they were prepared. We arrived at 6:35 for a 6:45 reservation. The food is wonderful and plenty of it. Our group had a sampling of... More

We stopped at this place for dinner after a wonderful chamber music concert at a local winery .The food was quite creative, but the music (techno/disco) was not up to the food. Despite the protestations and promises of the server and the management, the music did not stop or lower in decibel level. Wouldn't go back ...

My wife and I were with another couple wine tasting in Napa and dropped in here for lunch. I didn't realize Rutherford Grill is part of the Hillstone group of restaurants, which are all wonderful. Everyone had a great dish and this place is on our list to revisit.

The food was fabulous but I highly recommend you share dishes if you're with friends. The kale salad was spectacular, the ribs fantastic and always love the spinach and artichoke dip... yummy!!

The Rutherford Grill is a large place. It has a casual and nice atmosphere. Surprising how tasty the BBQ ribs were-- I wasn't expecting that in wine country. All the other lunch entrees were also great. I'd eat here again in a heartbeat. And the food was served quickly too.

The professional service, the wonderful comfort food and the atmosphere never disappoints. The ribs and the chicken are to die for, as is the fish sandwich and the prime rib sandwich. Actually everything is good.

We arrived at the Rutherford Grill, as a group of 12, with no reservation and it was worth the 25 min wait. There is a pleasant patio outside and it was a sunny day. Inside we were seated at 2 banquette tables, which was not a problem. The server was very pleasant and welcoming and interested to know where we... More

We lunched here. Food and atmosphere were great. The cornbread is famous - you MUST try it! Then, I dare you not to go home and try to replicate it! The Kale Salad (appetizer, not entree w/chicken) was delish as well. Also at our table, the Prime Rib sandwich - all were amazing!

First off, make a reservation. This place is always packed, so don't just walk in...unless you want to wait an hour. The food is amazing, the wine, well, you are in Napa Valley, so you know it will be divine. Service is A+, at least when I went in.....but do not go to Napa without eating here!!!!!

NEVER a disappointment! Several years apart, another outstanding experience! This time grabbing seats at the bar, to make sure we watched our Cleveland Indians wine game 1 of ALCS, we made it just before a big rush. Aaron at the bar made us feel welcomed and happy to serve us. Corn bread to start, always a winning comfort delight! Salmon... More
