Cook St. Helena
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.
Ah-mazing meal and best service ever. ❤️
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!
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.
Great pasta, excellent service, we had a very easy enjoyable dinner, wine selection by the glass could be improved. Our service was excellent
neat place, service could have been better but overall a god dining experience.
Service was impeccable. Food was scrumptious. Great lunch, enjoyable experience.
Great service, excellent fresh food
Amazing Italian food which was served quickly by a fun and energetic server named Oscar. The restaurant is small and noisy but I loved every minute of it. By far my best dining experience in St. Helena!
No birthday dessert
Amazing food at local foodies haven. Love it here.
The best pasta. Excellent service. They just need to have a few reasonably priced wines. Nothing under about $50 right now.
Amazing meal! Great ambiance! We loved Jeremy - he was an informative and knowledgeable server!! Great celebration ❤️
Recommended by a local nearby while we were shopping around - she told us the food was fantastic and it did not let us down. The past felt freshly made and the combo of adding fresh ricotta into a bolognese sauce, while I was unsure at first, absolutely made that dish.
Server was very helpful with all dishes and attentive all night without being 'annoyingly attentive'. Reasonably priced dishes for how good quality they were. We also had the polenta (so cheesy and creamy!) and the side veggie of the day, which was a broccolini/zucchini dish sautéed in baked garlic butter sauce. That was soooo good!
Only negative I can think of is that there was no air conditioning, which during the hotter months like when we went, makes it a little stuffy inside.
It was an extremely hot evening and the small restaurant was crowded and stuffy. Our red wine was warm so we used ice cubes to cool it. The wine list was very limited. In Cabernet country there were only a few bottles available, all from wineries we didn’t recognize and overpriced at +$200 a bottle if I recall. The service was good but the staff was small with far too many tables to attend to. The entrees were okay, but it wasn’t the memorable experience we had hoped for.
Excellent food but a limited menu. Very good wine at reasonable prices. A small place but very worthwhile!
Very nice authentic food like in Italy. Very friendly service.
On a hot day dinner in a small restaurant without AC is ....we sat under the fans by the bar. Pity the kitchen staff.
Cook is a great hole in the wall restaurant in St Helena. One of the wine makers at Bravante vineyards highly recommended it as his "go to" place is St. Helena. The eggplant parmesan was fabulous as well as the caprese salad. Very cozy, casual restaurant.
The food was very good. The service was also very good and I would definitely recommend it to a friend. However I’m not sure if the air conditioning was not working or just off but it was very warm inside.
This was such an enjoyable experience. A lovely place to enjoy fantastic food, great service, and great wine!
Great food and service. Loved it!
The food was great, but unfortunately the air conditioner was broken so enjoying discussions and food was difficult. By the time lunch was complete, we were all sweating
As usual, the food is interesting and really good. Also, the wine is excellent.
Very good food and service. Very reasonably priced.
The service was great. The food was well prepared and tasty. The atmosphere of the restaurant was nice.
Cook is one of the first restaurants we ever went to in Napa Valley and still a favorite. Simple menu but everything is delicious!
Wonderful local place. Food is terrific and the interior is charming. About the only criticism is that it's always busy!
Cook was fantastic; great find!! The short rib was AMAZING!
A little gem of an Italian restaurant located in the heart of Saint Helena, CA. All the dishes did not disappoint our group of well-traveled and discerning Italian gastronomers. The pasta and short rib entrees are a must-try!
