Our party of three enjoyed a fabulous 3-course dinner at a table in front of their fireplace. The ambiance was quiet for nice conversation and the lighting perfect. The staff brought each course out of the kitchen to us in a little parade just like...More

My previous review was for the CIA restaurant, which has been closed, replaced by the Gatehouse. The new venue is easier to access, smaller and very comfortable. Unlike our experience with so many restaurants, we were actually able to carry on a conversation without shouting....More

Great food with great care taken by the students at the Culinary Institute. Great options for visitors with a well-balanced availability of vegetarian options. The steak was excellent, as was the chocolate dessert!

My brother who travels all over the country, told my husband and I that we had to eat here if we were traveling to Napa. When we arrived, I was stunned at the large castle-like building. Then we discovered that the Gatehouse was literally that,...More

Something different and much better than I expected. The entire staff are students in their final semester at the CIA Greystone. The menu was intersting and well-executed. The service was a little uneven because we were served by cooking students not servers but it wasn't...More
