La Condesa Napa Valley
We enjoyed our visit to LaWe enjoyed our visit to La Condesa. We requested a 5:30 p.m. reservation (being from the Central Time Zone, this equated to 7:30 p.m. at home), and we were the only diners in the restaurant at that time. We would highly recommend the Guacamole and Salsa samplers; both are unique and add extra depth to the meal. The service was excellent, but I would temper this comment with the reminder that we were the only people there at the time. La Condesa is located on the main street of St. Helena, which can make parking somewhat tricky. Overall, it is worth a visit.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome dinnerWe made a last minute reservation to celebrate my sister's birthday at La Condesa for late lunch/early dinner. I live in Calistoga and have been trying to make my way over here since the end of November. Well, the wait was definitely worth it! Our server rocked (her name was Katherine). She was attentive enough but also gave us our space and time to enjoy ourselves.
As for the food, all I could say was WOW. This is the first time that I've been speechless. Everything was amazing. It trasported my sister and myself back to being in Mexico (I lived in Guadalajara for some time and she in Mexico City). Major props to the kitchen staff for accomplishing a no-easy feat.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAn unusual and fun semi-upscaleAn unusual and fun semi-upscale Mexican restaurant, with a local vibe.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMDuck Confit tacos and PuertoDuck Confit tacos and Puerto Vallarta Ceviche were terrific!! Only complaint was the Tortilla soup which was way too salty - perhaps just a bad batch. Love the margaritas also!! Would come back again!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you're looking for somethingIf you're looking for something a little different in Mexican style food, this is it. The food is very tasty, and the presentations are unique. Noise level is on the high side.3/18/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really loved the avocadoWe really loved the avocado taster!!
