    We booked The Grill for a 50th birthday wine country lunch for our brother. I told the restaurant it was his 50th birthday and requested a table outside. When we arrived, it looked like they weren't expecting us so they set up an outdoor table way at the back of the patio where other Meadowood employees were frequently going up and down the stairs by us. We were a little embarrassed that we'd make such a big deal out of eating there and having that be our experience. The waiters were very friendly though at least three of them asked if we wanted still or sparkling water before we finally got some. I would recommend this restaurant only if you're staying at Meadowood and feel like having a quick burger for lunch before heading out on the day.

    The scenery overlooking the golf course and wooded landscape at sunset was one of the best in the Valley. The staff was very accommodating and friendly from start to finish. Make sure you try the flatbread, beat salad and brioche desert- truly exceptional.

    We decided on the Grill due to the many positive reviews on Open Table. Have eaten several times at The Restaurant in Meadowood and didn't expect to compare the two. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable about the food. We chose the 4 course prix fix dinner. Started off great with appetizer and soup, then went downhill from there. The duck was lacking in flavor. It tasted like salt and pepper pan fried duck breast. The dessert I chose was the panna cotta. I had to ask the waiter what flavor was the panna cotta because I did not taste the "chocolate" at all. Overall, the dinner took 3 long unnecessary hours!!

    Had the chance to dine here recently after a very long travel day. It was a great fall day and was just getting dark but the staff was fine with letting us dine outdoors and had the heat lamps set up. Appetizer special was fig flat bread and was terrific. The duck was also great and the brioche dessert topped off the night. Our server, Mike, was on point and not obtrusive and deserved a big hand in making this dining experience what it was with his knowledge of the menu and wine list.

    We ordered the food and wine pairing tasting dinner. It was a lot of fun! We were able to choose 4 courses from a nice selection. And they chose the wines that would pair best with what we ordered. Everything was very good, the pear soup and the mushroom flatbread were outstanding! The service was excellent (a little too serious)! And the wine choices with explanation was excellent. This is a good place for a special occasion or nice night out! While the whole experience was excellent, I have had better food at other restaraunts. There were 2 other events going on nearby and sitting in the deck you hear them. This was a Saturday night. But I would recommend the restarant!

    This hidden gem surprised us. The setting is beautiful overlooking the golf course. We enjoyed the casual atmosphere and dining outdoors. The service was professional & friendly and added to our enjoyment of the evening. We chose the 4 course dinner and each course was perfectly prepared & served. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and have made The Grill @ Meadowood our new favorite restaurant in Napa Valley.

    The food was fabulous. We sat outside overlooking the golf course, amongst the trees and various shades of green. It was very relaxing and quiet. The inside dining area was a little too warm but outside was perfect. The Meadowood also has a winery, pool and spa and tennis courts. There is lodging available. Very nice location between Yountville and St. Helena on the Silverado Trail.

    We make it a point to eat breakfast at Meadowood whenever we're in town. I have to have the Huevos Rancheros - eggs (cooked to order) with black beans, guacamole, sour cream & pico de gallo on a crispy tortilla... it is simply the best! They also have a wonderful American Breakfast as well as waffles & many other choices. We are never disappointed & always enjoy sitting on the back deck overlooking their golf course & wooded mountainside view. It is a great way to start the day!

    This was a special 43rd anniversary occasion and the seat, food and service was everything you could want it to be. The Kubota Pork Chop was tender and the special Kale salad added the right touch. My wife had the Salmon and it melted in her mouth. Done perfectly. We went upstairs where the High-End 12-19 course dinners were served for an after dinner cocktail. Please note I had a low end port and my wife had a low-end Chardonnay. The cost was $48. So if you want to spend less than $500 per person minimum, eat at The Grill downstairs.

    My wife and I were recently married in Napa. We are both chefs and foodies, and my wife surprised me with a dinner at the Grill. From start to finish the service was outstanding. The staff at the Grill were extremely attentive with regards to every need of ours, to include my need for a gluten-free menu due to an allergy. We were given a complimentary glass of champagne to celebrate our recent nuptials, and they very graciously chilled a bottle of wine we brought, and served us the same wine for no charge. We chose to do the four course tasting menu, which was paced very well. The whole setting was amazing, and the food was plated very well. My only slight issue was with the pork chop and potatoes being under-seasoned on my dish.

    The Grill at Meadowood is my fabulous. It is often the case that I dine alone, and yet, I always feel welcomed at The Grill. The weather is such that it is nearly always possible to sit outside for a meal, and the view of the golf course, croquet lawn and Meadowood reception hall are beautiful and refreshing. The food and service are first class. If there is such a thing as first class plus, it should be awarded to The Grill. Special kudos to Paul, the manager, who ensures everyone is comfortable and at ease.

    We had lunch on the patio on a weekday to celebrate a birthday. Everything we ordered was delicious and healthy for you as well. The server was very helpful in assisting us in ordering. The flatbread starter lettuce salad with avocado dressing were great. The portions were generous and the complimentary dessert was a nice touch. They were accommodating in making me a vegetarian entree. I would have liked to have seen it listed on the menu. The place is pricey, but well worth it for a special occasion.

    Had lunch on the patio at Meadowood Grill this last Tuesday with my wife and another couple. Sat outside because the weather was beautiful, but our view over some ongoing construction/maintenance was less than ideal especially in light of its luxury orientation. We arrived a few minutes prior to the other couple and had brought a bottle of grower champagne. After asking him to ice the bottle, he proceeds to start to uncork it with out the other couple being present. Overall presentation by the servers of the meal left us with the sense of not being wanted and the timing of courses and lateness of items that were ordered left much to be desired in terms of the quality of experience. For the price definitely would not recommend.

    Epic effort. the ability to manage a remarkable and memorable flavor is faced with the often unwelcome issue in great restaurants and that is inconsistent dishes that range from great to great effort, not a wonderful result - down to totally not worth it and terribly incongruous. Specialty drinks are OK. The kitchen needs work and more depth. Servers are good, but act like we are in for a treat, but I received grade B minus dishes- With potential to mature and season into AA chefs (capable of combined depth of flavors and complexity that results in "simply wonderful").

    It's a nice patio dining spot, but our dinner was not very good. The green salad with green goddess dressing was soggy and uninteresting. The Wagyu beef was over cooked, we had all asked for medium rare and got from medium to medium well. The veggies with the steak were very good.

    Loved the views of the golf course and the croquet lawn set amongst the pines in a small glen in beautiful Napa Valley. The food was very fresh and tasty. The scallops were the best I've ever had. The staff were very nice and knowledgeable. We were a little early, but they were able to accommodate us. Was a part of a very memorable weekend in Napa Valley.

    The winding, tree-canopied road leading to The Meadowood sets you up for a relaxing lunch in a picturesque setting. The grill is hidden on the back side of the parking lot, past the resort registration building, but once you get there, they take excellent care to make sure you are well served. We sat outside and watched white-clad folks enjoying a croquet match against the well-manicured lawn. The lunch fair was excellent, featuring fresh, local produce. We had a great conversation with the manager while we waited for our food. He recommended a book on the history of the area that my husband can't wait to start. The meal was served fresh and warm and the portions were generous.

    Best for lunch; you can't see anything at night out the windows and the DR is generic/uninteresting. The food at Meadowood's "Casual" restaurant is always good, but half our dinner was stunningly creative and wonderful. But half the dishes were more ordinary, the kind you'd see anywhere except they cost more here. The fried calamari were wonderful, but do you want to pay triple $$$/pp (when it's all totaled up) for a plate of it? Still, the execution and ingredients are top-notch, and when they hit, as on the turnip-macadamia soup and asparagus flatbread w/rhubarb shavings, they hit BIG. They could rival Auberge at a lower price if they'd let loose a little more creativity.
