The outdoor area is very charming so we sat outside. The food was terrific! We ordered many appetizers and shared everything. The service was wonderful. Our server made a mistake in telling us that the port my husband ordered was a tawny port when it turned out to be a ruby port, so he offered us dessert on the house. It was very unexpected and a generous surprise. It's upscale but not ridiculously expensive. We loved it!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMNice place in a scenic settingScallops were tasty and very nicely done but a tad salty. Steak fillet was very tender and perfectly done. Great selection of local wines! Attentive service of a very busy night. Pricey menu but a great place for that special occasion. Will visit again.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a wonderful experience.We had a wonderful experience. I may be too stingy with four stars across the board. Four and one-half stars would be more accurate. We have eaten in this restaurant over the last thirty years. Its current ownership and menu is most definitely an improvement. I hope they do well. Food quality was excellent. I had a petite filet, and my wife ordered scallops. Both dishes were superb.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Romantic DinnerThe food was fantastic!

Can't wait to go back.3/5/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was a beautiful drive fromIt was a beautiful drive from Napa, love the Wooden Valley area. Mankas is at the bend in the road, next to Vezer Winery. So fun to taste after lunch or even before. We were there for lunch. We had the ribs and french dip along with fries etc. and of course wine, all good. Everything fresh. The table next to us had a soup which I could hear they were really enjoying. Will go back. The setting is outstanding even on a rainy day. Do stop by the Vezer, nice wines, good experience and that's coming from a Napan! Nice change from the busy highway 29. Will send company over the hill to enjoy this valley and restaurant. Well done Fairfield. Surprise surprise!11/17/2012 12:00:00 AM
