This highly acclaimed restaurant prides itself in using fresh ingredients and sustainable produce, as well as humanely raised meats and line-caught or farmed fish.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2014

This was a fun trip! The train ride was a great experience. The rails are slightly elevated so the views are beautiful. Our waiters provided commentary as we rode from Napa to St Helena.

The lunch they served was fabulous. There were four of us on the trip and everyone had a different entrée.... all were excellent. And dessert of Crème Brulee ... what more could you ask for.

I highly recommend this trip to anyone visiting the Wine Country.
