Disappointed that the CIA head office in New York is closing the CIA at Greystone and moving it elsewhere. Got to wonder what they were thinking or what facts they have that the rest of us don’t. 1 star for the NY run management Lunch. Prepared, cooked and served by the students at the Culinary Institute of America, this meal... More

Excellent food and service. Loved the various courses that we received but admittedly the portions were rather small. Not a problem unless you are going really hungry. Definitely would try it again.

Visited the restaurant because of the reviews and the fact that it is staffed by students of the CIA. Our previous experiences at similar venues have been very successful. The room was hot, the air conditioning did not keep up with the presence of the open kitchen. Unpleasant cooking smells pervaded the room The service was attentive and the server... More

The dishes are are presented beautifully! The scallop appetizer is really good. But as another reviewer reported, the portions are small. But that leaves room for dessert! Greg was a fabulous host! Choice of inside or outside dining. In July being outside was dining was very pleasant, with great views.

The food was excellent and the service was friendly yet professional. The restaurant is affiliated with the Culinary Institute of America. The food was up to extremely high standards as expected, and was not that expensive.

Their food is wonderful, it's a nice setting, and the service has always been friendly. I just feel that their menu is limited; the dishes all seem similar and there isn't much variety. It's probably best if your meal is going to centered around wine; for example if you picked out a bottle of wine and then selected the food... More

Wine Spectator Greystone is a must visit when in Napa. The staff are mostly student's at the Culinary Institute of America. My wife and I had wonderful servers. The food was fantastic and the atmosphere comfortable but elegant.

My husband and I went to a late lunch at Greystone. Even though we did not have reservations, they were able to accommodate us with an inside table. Restaurant is very noisy and has a somewhat limited menu. My husband had the Chiopinno and I had the duck. Although the food was very good, portions were on the small side.... More

After a visit to Mumm's magnificent photo exhibit, stopped by after 2 pm for a quick late lunch. I ordered the greens salad, a glass of Mumm's DVX and chocolate pot de feu with lychee Ice cream. Every bite and dip was magnificent, the service was over the top and the view was out of this world. Highly recommended for... More

So said it, lunch very good. Our favorites were the gnocchi and a side of peas shoots. Also had the chicken cutlets with ratatouille. Very good. I would recommend this restaurant. The food was good and it's an investment in our future chefs!!

Thank Wondermore
