Napa Restaurants Guide

Napa is not just about wine. Napa is restaurant heaven, a place for foodies. Napa Restaurants are one of the main attractions for Napa Valley, drawing people from around the world.barrel

If you like to eat, you will like Napa. Breakfast, lunch and dinner. High end to burger stands. Craft Beer and wine bars. Enjoy!

There are so many great places to eat in Napa Wine Country, it is hard to chose the “best.” 

Topping the list is the French Laundry. Thomas Keller’s first restaurant is great food in a great setting. Set in an a old stone farmhouse, surrounded by organic gardens, and then set in Napa Valley – the setting is charm on steroids. The menu is mostly French, with other contemporary items mixed in and paired with the best of wines.  There are two different nine-course menus every night. The menus change daily.   Expect a long meal.  The French Laundry also is open for lunch Friday through Sunday. Not inexpensive.

The Restaurant at Meadowood is one of 10 restaurants in America to earn 3 stars from the Michelin. It is only three-Michelin-star restaurant on the West Coast besides the French Laundry but with a more affordable three-course menu. Located in a the Meadowood, St. Helena luxury resort, it is one of the best dining experiences in the USA. Everything served, from vegetables to shellfish to meat are all from local producers. Dailey menus offer between 15-20 courses- or 8 to 10 courses. Not inexpensive.

For American cuisine, try the Rutherford Grill, on Hwy 29 next to BV, burgers, or for ribs and cornbread.

Turning from the high end, Gott’s Roadside is located along the roadside in St. Helena in. This is the original Gott’s Roadside of the family-run Bay Area chain, started up in 1949. Burgers, ahi poke tacos and milkshakes are to had here, and eaten in the surrounding outdoor picnic area.

For deli food to eat on the spot or to take for snacks as your tour the valley, stop at V. Sattui Winery, located on Hwy 29 in the heart of Napa Valley. The deli is open 7 days a week, has cheeses, salami & pâtés, fresh fruits and desserts.   The  V. Sattui Winery deli and winery is surrounded by manicured gardens, lawns, giant oak trees and 35 acres of vineyards with picnic grounds on site.  From 11:30am to 3:30pm on the weekends (weather permitting) their outdoor Barbecue features mesquite-grilled prawns, tri-tip, salmon and ribs, wood-fired pizzas, and fresh or grilled local oysters.
