    We celebrated our 31st anniversary last night and had a wonderful time! Started with the delicious Calamari (we both love calamari and Cook does a fantastic job). I ordered the gnocchi with the Gorgonzola cream sauce, absolutely divine and my husband had the pasta with Bolognese sauce which was also wonderful. Didn’t have room for dessert, but the options looked phenomenal. And the music in the background was amazing, I knew every song! Our waitress was kind, described all the specials, made sure we had everything we needed and made great suggestions. I really wanted to have Italian food because we met at an Italian restaurant (I was a waitress at the time). Please send our apologies to our waitress for almost leaving without paying—we are getting very tired from our job with 12-14 hour days, on our feet the whole day. Hopefully she understands. We do try to come there every month or two, the food there is always fantastic and the place is so wonderful! We will be back again and again!!!

    We had a very romantic table in the front window , as we celebrated our anniversary. The food was excellent. My favorite part is they let you set the pace of service. We will be back.

    Excellent as always. Food remains delicious. The mussels with spicy sausage in tomato based broth is literally one of my favorite all-time restaurant meals. Consider it as an entree. My wife veers towards plant based foods, but makes an exception for this bolognese. Enough said. Ideal, knowledgeable service. Great bistro ambiance. Also where else can you have such a great experience where dinner with dessert and wine is less than $150 for two, including tip?

    This is an elite casual dining experience. The cozy ambience with an excellent selection of appetizers and entrees was complemented by a wonderful and diverse wine list. While we’re only in Napa for the week, we will make a second trip to COOK before we depart. The warmth of the people (including the active owner) makes this ultra-special. Total winner!! ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️
