Good service; Meadowood is always pleasant setting; were there for Sunday brunch. House made corned beef hash nicely flavored, grilled salmon over greens very fresh

The Grill at Meadowood has always been a place of serenity, excellent food and wonderful service. Today it is even more so. Sitting on the balcony above the Meadowood golf course, enjoying beautiful plating of creative cuisine, the Grill captures all that is the Napa Valley.

Went to The Grill for dinner while staying at Meadowood. Prime attraction was that it was on the campus and we didn't have to drive to St. Helena. (We did drive to St. Helena the previous night and had a terrific meal, so we compared our experience there with The Grill and it wasn't close.) Atmosphere is similar to a grill at a golf club and that's exactly what it is. There is inviting outside dining with a nice golf course view, but no heat lamps and it is pretty dark, so that might be good for lunch or early dinner but not good after the sun sets. We had a flatbread appetizer and the topping was great but the flatbread was practically raw. We shared an excellent heirloom tomato salad. Our entrees, halibut (good) and roast chicken (over roasted) were just OK. We shared a nice chocolate desert. Service was fine and the restaurant was about 25% full so service should be good! We had a total of two cocktails and two glasses of wine. The kicker is that the bill, including tip, came to $110 per person! Astronomical price for an OK dinner in a clubhouse grill! I'd recommend taking the Meadowood limo service (if you are staying there) into St. Helena to one of many places where you would get far more value for your dollar. If you aren't staying there, just go to St. Helena for dinner! Try The Market!

I was expecting more from a restaurant from the people of Meadowood. Yes, it's not THE restaurant, but one would expect the prices to match the quality of the food and service. Sadly, it did not. When the food was served, nothing was explained, just placed down before us. Also, they did not wait for my husband to return from the restroom before serving the food. They just brought it out when it was convenient for them. This is a very casual restaurant, so no need to dress up. The food was ok, nothing to write home about. The best part of the meal was the marinated olives.

When you're at Meadowood, you feel like you're in a private valley. The views are gorgeous and the service is impeccable. Food is always great and they did not disappoint on our visit.

On vacation, with my sister. It was 100 degrees outside and one of the porters gave as a short ride in a golf cart from the hotel's main entrance to the restaurant (literally a few steps away)!Came in on a Sunday afternoon, 2 pm; a few other late diners already present when we arrived and we got a table immediately. Ordered the amberjack ceviche, heirloom tomato salad, and split a wagyu hamburger. Everything was delicious!! Second time dining at the restaurant; first time was 2 years ago with my best friend. Did I mention our table looks out over the golf course?? I highly recommend 👍

This is a hidden gem in Napa... so many restaurants create complicated menus that intimidate foodies, but here the food is creative but basic. The food and service is incredible and the outdoor patio has amazing views.

Went there for dinner and had a wonderful evening. Food was great. The only down side was the Wine list which is pretty expensive with almost no wine under 100$. But the food was really nice, with the Wagyu beef being tasty and cooked rare as we had asked which isn't the case most of the time.

We came here to celebrate my mother's birthday after wine tasting. The food was outstanding and the wait staff was spot on. The drive in was very pretty and sitting outside was lovely. I do wish that some the trees would be trimmed so that everyone can have a great view but we will be back!!

Over the years, I've eaten several excellent dinners at The Grill. It's a lovely setting just beneath Meadowood's amazing Michelin 3 Star sister. Our most recent meal however was terribly disappointing. The food was barely adequate. The $48 Wagyu steak was an absurdly small portion, 50% fat and excessively salted. The salmon was good but unremarkable. The service was amateurish. The full winelist was, as usual, outstanding but the wines by the glass were overpriced and disappointing...especially striking given how many local winemakers eat there. Since The Valley has so many outstanding restaurants, I'd eat lunch at The Grill but skip dinner. As opposed to Boucheon which has the flavor of the French Laundry, this place bears no resemblance to Chris Kostow's terrific 3 star. Instead, I'd head to town and try his excellent Charter Oak.

Waited 10 min for a menu, 20 min to order. The service was horrible. I don't really know if we even had a server. Lamb & polenta had no flavor. No one came to check on us during our entire meal. I wanted another glass of wine with dinner, but no one came around.

Charles was a wonderful server. He couldn't have been better. The fish tacos remain the best I have ever had. And the strawberry vacherin for dessert was superb. I will always, always think of The Grill as my most favorite restaurant in the wine country.

The food was well prepared, but not overly exciting. While I realize that The Grill is not the same as The Restaurant at Meadowood, which was closed when we were in the area, we expected something... I don't know, more? Appreciated the freshness of vegetables and herbs, and the presentation was very pretty and rustic. On the other hand, seasoning was a little bit off on some (ceviche was a tiny but underseasoned, the polenta that came with the lamb shank was oversalted). The staff were very helpful and friendly. I'd definitely come back to try the Michelin starred restaurant, but for the limited number of times I visit Napa county, I'll probably give the Grill a miss next time I'm in the area.

We went there for dinner and the staffs were friendly and professional. We sat outside patio and it was next to golf course so the view was greenery. The only disadvantage would be mosquitos fly around or bite you. Appetizer Amberjack ceviche was fantastic awesome and we really felt wanting to have 2nd order but had to leave stomach for main course and dessert. Waygu burger was good but bun could be improved better. The bun was quite dense for us. Bacon was a little overpower on top of Waygu. I got avocado and pretty happy about it. . Dessert: I got strawberry cake and we both love it, sweet with good acidity level and a little tart sorbet to balance with. He got chocolate with sea salt cake and it was good. For bar, they have full bar and also able to do virgin drinks for me ^0^. Overall, we indeed enjoyed our dinner time there and would go back there next time when we visit Calistoga.

The Grill at Meadowood is a must-see destination when you are in Napa Valley. The views are incredible of the golf course and surrounding hillsides. It is worthy of a visit just for the views. The service is impeccable. The real standout is the food. W have had brunch here several times and really enjoyed each meal. The Eggs Benedict are delicious, and you can split it between traditional Canadian bacon and smoked salmon. The Huevos Rancheros is the best I've ever had. The price is comparable to other Napa Valley restaurants (kinda expensive), but you get so much more for your money here. Treat yourself, you'll be glad you did.

This is an exclusive resort golf course (read old white folk and young obnoxious white young people) grill that we went for lunch sadly on a Sunday (read obligatory brunch aka eggs). Circumventing the breakfast stuff was hard with little alternatives; normal weekdays may be better.
