Friends of ours that live in Rohnert Park wanted to meet for lunch, and, since that's a long way for us, said they'd meet us in the Napa Valley at a favorite place of theirs, Rutherford Grill... Imagine my surprise when I walk into a tastefully decorated, kitchen and bar in the middle of the room, with booths all around...... More

Another of our Napa Valley favorites. Went for an early dinner and the place was very busy at 6pm on a Thursday evening. Food is consistently good here. The wine list is reasonably priced however as with many places in the valley you can bring your own bottle as well. Had the ribeye steak with cornbread on the side. Mashed... More

We had dinner here after a day of wine tasting in Rutherford. It was classic Hillstone: friendly service, excellent food, fun environment. I recommend making reservations through their website...the wait when we arrived at 4:30pm on a Sunday night was over an hour (we had reservations and were seated immediately). No corkage fee, so bring your wine! I would not... More

Every time we go to Napa we make a point to visit Rutherford Grill. ALWAYS exceptional. ALWAYS great service. ALWAYS a terrific experience. The ribs are some of the best I've ever had. The fish is outstanding, the sides are delicious, the wine list is great and if you're wine'd out, they have a nice selection of beer and cocktails.... More

This was an amazing experience but make sure to make reservations in advance as there is a heck of a waiting line (an easy hour plus). My wife had the rotisserie chicken and I had the 8 oz. filet, both came with the mashed potatoes and mixed vegetables. WOW was it great and the service was even better!

We ordered a bottle of sparkling wine to go along with it and it came... More

My husband and I have been here a few times before in the past. We always enjoyed the prime rib dip. So I was looking forward to lunch and ordered that sandwich. When it arrived, I bit into it only to find out that the majority of meat in my sandwich was gristle. I removed that portion and continued eating... More
