Cook St. Helena
We recently tried Cook for the first time. It has a warm, intimate atmosphere, the service was excellent and the food was superb. I loved the Risotto, the short ribs were delicious too. My daughters had the sheet noodles, one had bolognese and the other had pesto. The pesto was a special request and they were happy to make it. I highly recommend Cook.
Delicious food -great service!
Awesome food and service! Great wine list with very reasonable prices!
Great food..the special was fantastic! Service was spot on!
Great waitress: Gwen
Loved the Eggplant parmesan!
Cook is one of our all time favorites! Small and quiet with the best food.
Our Napa Valley go-to, favorite restaurant. We have been going for 15 years now and Cook never disappoints. They just get it all right!
Cook was delicious and everyone in our party was very happy! We will talk about this meal for a very long time.
Small but wonderful little Italian place in St. Helena. We stopped in for a post wine tasting luncheon and everyone enjoyed their food which was prepared just a few feet away in the open kitchen. Excellent food, wonderful service.
Always a solid choice in town. Great comfort Italian food, fresh ingredients and too culinary execution.
Special risotto is always delicious. Nice wine list with tons of locals.
Great service from Bella ! Food was wonderful. Brussel sprouts were as good as any that we have ever had. Salad was a great next course filled by a wonderful chicken pasta that was delicious. Great little place that produces great food in a small location. Can be a bit loud when full but still a great place to enjoy a great meal. If we lived in St. Helena this would be a frequent stop!
Too Loud Too bland too expensive.
Eggplant parmigiana too bready and sauce was too tinny. no bread or olive oil to start, and wine was so so, pricy but not worth the price. My partners liked their meals, tho, so maybe just an off night for eggplant parmigiana. Oh yeah, the ministroni soup was super good, so there’s that.
My brother and I each flew a few hours to rendezvous in Napa for a weekend of wine tasting--dinner the first night was at Cook and it was a great (perhaps too great) start to the weekend. Fantastic food, engaging and friendly service, good wine selection. After dinner we sat outside on the sidewalk bench and talked for a half hour before deciding that our best option at 10 pm was to go back inside for another glass of wine each and a couple espressos at the bar.
Delightful, well prepared food. A little cramped, but European style. Friendly, helpful, accommodating waitstaff. Definitely one will return to
Absolutely love Cook St. Helena. Everything is just perfect! Excellent food paired with phenomenal service. This is a do not miss restaurant in Napa Valley. Make a reservation early!
Came all the way from Canada and enjoyed everything about this place!
Loud, inattentive service, and uneven food. Given the reviews, I was disappointed.
This is one of our favorite places to dine in St. Helena and we try to eat there at least once every time we visit. We love the small restaurant ambiance, the casual chic decor, the fabulous food and gracious service. Prices are reasonable and the experience is always delightful. I have a bit of a hearing problem and wish it had more sound mitigation but otherwise it’s just wonderful.
The restaurant is small. The staff are exceedingly attentive. The food was tasty. Perfect end to a day of tasting and enjoying the bounty of St. Helena. Wine list was broad as you might expect amidst wine country.
Overall experience was poor. My pasta dish was very average. The noise level was loud. Cramped space.
The salad was okay. Would not,recommend this place to anyone!
Outstanding food which actually outperformed many of the winery experiences
Delicious, quaint. Amazing service, great choice of wines. Would gladly return.
Our “go to” place for a quiet dinner for two in St. Helena.
What a wonderful restaurant! Don’t blink or you’ll miss the front door. One of the best meals we had in the Napa area. Definitely on our list for the next visit. Highly recommend!
Excellent pastas, especially the gnocchi.
This has been our favorite restaurant in the valley for a number of years. Last night it was so noisy we couldn't hear each other across the table.
Most delicious plate of pasta (spaghetti vongole) I’ve had in years. Outstanding.
Good and service was great!
Just a fabulous meal and great staff!! Cozy place with just yummy Italian
Food and service was great. It was a cozy restaurant and delightful dinner.
Great food , especially if you love pasta, in a small cozy spot in downtown St Helena.
Food and service is always delicious and pleasant.
Cook never disappoints. Outstanding experience from an incredible staff. They are both friendly and knowledgeable paired with an incredible kitchen staff. Gnocchi remains my favorite and is authentic as they come. You will love everything about this restaurant if you go!
Ah-mazing meal and best service ever. ❤️
Always a fave among locals, this small restaurant has tremendous pasta dishes and a "risotto of the day" special, every day. You will need reservations for dinner and also for lunches on Fridays. Good Riedel wine stemware. I have been to Cook 40 times in 15 years and it is still my favorite, moderate-price haunt in downtown St Helena.
Our favorite in Napa Valley. Always wonderful food and service. Thanks again for a great meal.
As always, a favorite date night place.
I wish I could eat the cavatelli every day.
Thanks for a perfect anniversary dinner!
Nice place with very good food. Relaxed but not sloppy
Food is consistently great! Service, as always was wonderful.
