Rutherford Grill is just off of Hwy 29 in Rutherford between Yountville and St Helena. I would describe the menu as comfort food. Stuff like ribs, chicken, great salads and sandwiches. I had a salad with tuna that was amazing. We also shared the spinach and artichoke appetizer. This was excellent with nice big chunks of artichoke and not a... More

I know, everything here in wine country is delicious. This was still a great spot with a broad enough menu to please all. French dip was perfect. Service was good, outdoor bar was great. In the middle of it all, and a nice place for a break!! Enjoy

Reservations are recommended but we haven't had one for the past two visits. Don't let the wait line scare you, it moves fast. If not fast enough for you and you are lucky enough to sit at the bar (like most of the local wine business people), go for it. We had the ribs which were so tender that the... More

Had out-of-town visitors and made another visit--really enjoyed again their vegeburger, (they are big enough for 2) ;and the pan of cornbread; and a a special, spectacular, and splendid, artichoke appetizer! Had 1/2 of a "choker" for each of us! All were delighted. Must not wait so long to return. We utilized the link on their website to make reservation.... More

Love the food and the selections of wine by the glass. Plus the bottle prices are phenomenally low. BUT please get better wine glasses. That's why the review is 4 stars.

Rutherford Grill is an iconic spot in the valley. During the weekends and high season it does get pretty busy so we would definitely recommend making a reservation (or put in your name and taste at Elizabeth Spencer across the street). They have wonderful food entrees and great drinks. Its a comfortable setting and wonderful as a lunch spot or... More

I'm biased because I love this restaurant group but even in Napa I couldn't pass up a chance to stop by. Their french dip is phenomenal-best one I've had. The meat is cooked perfectly and the bread is super soft. Start with the skillet cornbread (and if you visit one of their other locations the queso is a must also!-they... More
