Amazing we were the only patrons in the entire restaurant. Food was excellent and a value for the price. The only negative was the lack of sommelier. Our wine pairings were not introduced and wrong glasses used with some selections.

We arrived early (long drive) and they put in some extra effort to seat us promptly The service was great and the food exceeded my expectations. I've spent more and received less value for a fixed price meal at well known restaurants in the area. It was also fun to see the hard working and eager students learning and developing their skills.

We really enjoyed our evening at the Gatehouse. The students of the CIA are really engaging and excited about their futures in the hospitality industry. The food was very good, and the service, while not perfect, was clearly showing effort. Recommend to all.

We were disappointed to find out that the restaurant was no longer at its old location because of work being done to the building. The food, presentation and service made for a very nice dining experience but it couldn't replace the old location.

As a local St Helena resident I will likely return with friends. My one complaint is that I do not like having gratuity automatically added to my bill. Gratuity should always be at the discretion of the party being served. It is optional depending on the quality of service. Otherwise just ad it to the cost of the meal and indicate that tipping is not accepted.

You could tell the wait staff were not in their comfort zone so the service was good but not excellent. However the food and value were excellent and more than made up for the not exactly perfect service. I will definitely return!

It was great to re-visit the CIA, loved the venue; small intimate setting. Interesting food choices, great local flavor. Good wine selections, although hoped for more available by the glass. Service by support staff of waiter could be improved.

We enjoyed every moment of our experience at Greystone , having students serving us gave us an appreciation for how hard they have worked through their schooling with graduation just around the corner. The kitchen preps for days and it shows not only in the artistic presentation but in the freshness and quality of the meal as many ingredients are sourced locally. The roasted peach panzanella salad was amazing as was the pork tenderloin. We can't wait to return next time we are in the area!

The servers was top notch and friendly, and also helpful with the selection.
The salad with burrata cheese was not as good as I expected. The tomatoes were very tasty and flavorful but the burrata was not done right. It was so firm one could mistake it for just plain mozzarella, otherwise delicious. I thought the portion to be small but quite acceptable. I was not stuffed.
The pacing of courses was perfect and I wil probably give it another try!

Enjoyed dinner on a Thursday evening. Loved seeing the kids at work in both the kitchen and dining areas. The food was prepared well with local seasonal ingredients. The burrata was a little too chewy but the tomatoes were outstanding. The agnolotti were lovely but the veggies could have been cut smaller. All and all we enjoyed the experience very much and would visit again.

We were so pleasantly surprised by the excellent food and incredible attentive service The students did an absolutely awesome job and Over all it was actually comparable to many fine dining experiences we have had over the years Four courses of exceptionally well done and balanced menu items. Plus really really fun attentive service Four course meal for two was under $100 INCREDIBLE !!! Expected to pay 2 to 3 times that much .... that still would have been a good value Highly recommend it !

Fish wrapped in filo was on the very salty side, we were offered a replacement but it was noted it was made as a batch. Did not accept a replacement. For the price (almost 150.00 with 1 corkage), food could be much better. We left still hungry
