    Make sure you make reservations for either breakfast, brunch or lunch at the Meadowood to take advantage of the beautiful grounds. At night, there is nothing to see and it becomes a good to very good restaurant for the food and wine, but it loses its major appeal which is the view.

    We really loved everything about eating out on the golf course in this beautiful tree-lined setting. We started with calamari and found it to be among the best ever! Both of us chose the Lobster club, which is what we came for, and it did not disappoint! I had a drink from the menu (Box Car) and my sweetie had a beer. Both great. Service couldn't be beat!

    Be prepared for the very high tab. The prices approach unreasonable. We paid $150 for two (with wine and desert) for lunch. And the servings were skimpy although the food was well-prepared.

    The Meadowood Grill is simply wonderful. Although totally different than it's upscale multi-star restaurant upstairs, it should not be considered anything less than a great site for a wonderful meal with great, caring service. When the weather permits, the outside deck is just wonderful.

    We have enjoyed previous visits to Meadowwood, but this was a small let down. My wife's deep fried squib was not as hot as one would have wanted, but the dip that came with it was exceptional. My beets were beautiful, but did not taste fresh, that is, there was no sweetness at all. We each had the lobster club sandwich. It was huge, and while they did not stint on the lobster, the bacon, tomato and avocado overwhelmed it. French fries were exceptional. Service was deft.

    We visit the Napa Valley a couple times a year and heard The Grill was a great dining experience. We went during the Dine around Napa month , and were very disappointed in our lunch experience....the food was quite ordinary. Our disappointment was real especially paying those kind of prices...speaking of those prices we certainly didn't mean paying them at Auberge Du Soleil the next day for a fantastic and memorable lunch.

    Our group of 3 were pleased with our choice of lunch. Lobster club was substantial. Bread was good but we didn't enjoy the "herb vinaigrette" -instead of butter or olive oil and balsamic vinegar- as it somehow ruined the taste of the bread. Service was very good. The crispy brioche dessert portion- 2 cubes of brioche- was small.

    Our first time at this restaurant. We really enjoyed the ambience and the food. The King Salmon was excellent and the Beet Salad with Goat Cheese dressing was one of the best salads I have ever had. My wife had the Lobster sandwich which was outstanding. We will be back and I highly recommend it for a great lunch setting( nice golf course views.)

    I had heard raving reviews about Meadowood resort and expected the Grill at Meadowood to be a wonderful experience. Unfortunately i received an everything but wonderful experience. When we were seated we were seated in the middle of the walkway when we had a reservation a week and a half prior. This was frustrating since everytime someone walked by they bumped the back of my chair. You would think as many times as i was bumped from behind the staff would have filled our waters and or removed our dirty dishes as we had a verrry small table for 4 Guests and the plates we had barely fit to begin with. We were never asked how our meal was! They were over staffed and chatted all around the bar and stared over at our table without stopping by.

    We are locals and were always afraid to go to Meadowood thinking it would be too expensive and stuffy. We went to the Meadowood Grill on Restaurant Month. The Prix Fixe menu allowed us to pick anything off of 3 courses which was great. The service was warm and friendly and as it was a quiet evening we were able to talk with the somalis and server. Just a great experience. The food was delicious with just the right portion size. Will definitely go back during the day for the full effect of the wonderful surroundings.

    The salads were both non-descript in both flavor profile and presentation. The risotto had a good flavor but the rice was too al dente and it really didn’t have the proper “slump”, more like rice pudding in consistency. The steak was done sous vide, which is fine. We have a PolyScience Pro at home and do our steaks this way all of the time. However, this steak was lightly grilled, rendering a grey and brown color with no flavor or juice. I assume there were no condiments in the vacuum bag. We always pan sear in olive oil and butter to get that wonderful crust we all love on steak. The mashed potatoes were over whipped to a gluten stage and were grainy. The one turnip on the plate was undercooked and the one carrot was overcooked.

    The Grill at the Meadowwood is a modest sized restaurant, so you never feel overcrowded. The atmosphere is that of a country club, though not in exclusive fashion. The food was very good, and in pleasant portions that are sure not to stuff you, but leave you quite satisfied. The highlight of the evening is learning more about wines from the knowledgable sommelier, Augie. He gave us a greater sense of out meal through wine.

    For a property like Meadowood to have a restaurant that looks like a budget diner badly in need of renovation just doesn't make sense to me. Why would they not update?? I had guests in town and brought them to the Grill for brunch. Overall it is a beautiful property, but upon entering the Grill I just felt embarrassed :-(. The food was OK...just don't go for the ambiance.

    Was very much looking forward to dinner at The Grill at Meadowood, but was greatly disappointed. The food, from start to finish was of poor quality and the service was lacking in all respects. The main concern of the staff was the pushing of a high priced local wine (that i had never heard of ) that was "perfect" for your meal. Unfortunately the food and the wine were subpar leading to a very dull and boring evening. Overall a huge disappointment. If you are looking for a great dining experience in NAPA, cross this one off your list.

    Walking up the golf path on a crisp September morning I had a feeling of being close to nature. As I walked into the restaurant, I was immediately greeted by a warm smile from our hostess. My guest and I (both from South Florida) opted to sit inside under controlled air while still maintaining the spectacular views of well groomed foliage of the golf course. The menu gave several choices for the most diversified tummies. I have a tummy that enjoys a big breakfast: omelette, potatoes, choice of bread (the English muffin is a must!), coffee, freshed squeezed orange juice and all served using the freshest ingredients. It's the Californian way! For one delightful morning, I was the breakfast queen of Meadowood. (Or at least I felt like I was.)

    This was a fantastic brunch spot in between wine tasting appointments. They also had a variety of mimosas (green apple, pineapple, orange, grapefruit). I tried a green apple mimosa and it was really refreshing. the bloody mary had a prawn on the side. My husband and our friend shared the burger and the lobster club - both of which were delicious. I had an omelet, which was fresh and light. They also had gluten free bread which is always a plus in my book.

    Enjoyed a terrific late lunch on the deck to celebrate s friend's bday. Service was warm and friendly. Great selection of wines and a full bar. Food was outstanding. We started with the gig flatbread which was very flavorful. I had the lobster BLT and it was do big I gave part to my friend. The French fries are excellent. The two other women had the scallop salad and loved it. For dessert we had the brioche pudding and enjoyed it. The setting made us feel as if we were in a special country retreat which is just what Meadowood is! There is also a high end restaurant on the property which we did not try but I am sure is worth coming back for another time

    My husband and I drove to the Meadowood Grill for lunch to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We ate outside and immediately after being seated the staff brought us a glass of champagne, very nice touch. Food was excellent, my husband really enjoyed his hamburger. Wait staff were attentive and answered any questions we had. It was a treat to sit and look at the lovely scenery and golfers while enjoying our lunch. Ambience was peaceful and quiet which we appreciated (we did come on a weekday after the lunch hour).
