The type of cuisine varies from week to week, but mostly it's comprised of Napa/Sonoma Valley California type of food. This restaurant might want to remain unlisted on TripAdvisor, but I thought it merited singing their praises. The food is fabulous, gourmet style, James Beard would be proud. This is a place you go when you want to enjoy a glass of wine, learn about the wine and actually taste food, not have bland gargantuan size meals. It can be pricey if you go for dinner, but the inexpensive way to go is to go on a Saturday, eat from the lunch menu or go early on a Friday eat in the bar area and enjoy food off the menu. There is also relaxing outdoor seating which is a wonderful place to
