This is a nice, small, Italian restaurant in downtown St. Helena. Reservations are probably needed on Fridays and Saturdays. The number of selections on the menu is moderate but they cover a wide range of food and the dishes are upscale (this is NOT a spaghetti house). The food was excellent! There is a fairly good list of Italian and... More

We had dinner at Cook one recent evening. We were seated in the back, which is near the kitchen and can get warm. There were a couple of tables free up front but we were told they were reserved. I suggest asking for tables up front when you make a reservation if that's what you'd prefer. We also felt very... More

This small restaurant provides more than we could have imagined. Excellent choices of wine and food and a great dessert to follow!

I had a great lunch with some friends at Cook. Everything was homemade and delicious. We all ordered different pasta dishes and all were amazing. The restaurant is small and quaint. I highly recommend this restaurant and will return on my next trip to Napa Valley.

Excellent restaurant experience. The food was simply amazing and wine list extensive. Eggplant was the best we have ever tasted. Will absolutely be top of Our list when we return to the Valley.

We were there for an early, light dinner. We shared: sautéed brussel sprouts, polenta, salad, tomato gazpacho soup, fresh mozzarella with heirloom tomatoes and of course a couple glasses of wine. Prices were reasonable for the area. Bill was $89. Everything was delicious and perfectly prepared. The server (Richard) however was grumpy and rude. To bad, had it not been... More

We were in search of an Italian Restaurant and decided on trying the Cook Tavern. A small intimate restaurant with excellent service. My wife had the pork loin and I had the braised rib with Parpparedell. Both our meals were very good, price was moderate, service was exceptional.

Accidentally happened across this place on NFL season kickoff. The crowd was friendly, the food was great and the drink menu has a pretty good variety. I would def reccommend this to those who wanted to be in a up close and friendly environment. My husband ordered the burger and I had the vegetable sandwich. Both were excellent. I loved... More

I had the good fortune to discover Cook in Saint Helena during a recent visit to wine country with friends. They were self proclaimed foodies and accomplished home cooks. All were delighted with their meals, from the risotto of the day with fresh shrimp and mussels, to the seafood pasta. Everything was super fresh. I ordered Eggplant Parmesan as it... More
