“WOW!!!!”
Reviewed November 9, 2013

This is incredible!! The food is absolutely creative and delicious. Service could not have been better --- friendly, nice, down-to-earth, yet attentive without being bothersome. We went there for lunch and were delighted with the whole ambiance matched perfectly with the food.

“No wait. Top notch food and service. Great value.”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

Checked into hotel across the street (Napa Valley Lodge) and asked for recommendation to eat, casual and without reservations. Clerk said this restaurant was new so no wait. I had read about needing reservations at all the other places in Yountville. We got right in for dinner, sat outside at bar. Many fire pits and heaters outside. Server was very attentive and knowledgeable about the food and drinks. Manager came by several times to ask how everything was, and was conversed with us. Food was top notch and great value.

“Didn't bother”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

We made lunch reservations and received an email confirmation. When we showed up, exactly on time, the hostess informed us there would be a 25 minute wait. We assured her we had reservations and she replied that they do take reservations, but they do not hold tables. We asked her why bother with reservations if they cannot honor them. She replied with the exact same response that they do take reservations but do not hold tables. This didn't make sense to us; a restaurant should either accept and honor reservations or not accept them. We chose not to wait and had a nice lunch at another local restaurant.

“A Lunch Stop”
Reviewed November 5, 2013 via mobile

We stopped here looking for a lunch place in between wine tasting and LOVED it! The service was great with everyone being super attentive. Tenfold, though, was great! The restaurant was beautiful with big open windows that let in a ton of natural light. We ordered the dip duo based on our server's suggestion, then ordered the chicken sandwich with fries on the side and it was amazing! The chicken was crispy and topped with a yummy coleslaw. We were very happy with our choice to stop and would highly recommend it!

“Great attitude, first-class cuisine and moderate prices”
Reviewed November 1, 2013

Judy and I once witnessed a "green flash" while leaving Martinique at sunset, so when I saw a beer on the menu identified as "green flash" of course I had to try it. Not bad! Different to be sure, with a strong bite and aftertaste, but altogether okay. Food was excellent and attractively presented, while the attitude of staffers was exceptionally friendly and relaxed...a really neat place.
