    A lovely and quiet restaurant. Duke was a knowledgeable server and both he and the wait staff were efficient and friendly. Lobster bisque was super delicious. The pasta with crab shavings was also very tasty.

    Haven't been in for a while, and the wait was pretty much worth it. They've grown into their spot here. Karen, our server, was outstanding. Also met David a new hire (3 months) on the management side of things. As a local, we live in SoYo and the restaurant is in NoYo, we appreciate the waived corkage. My wife had the grouper, which was outstanding. I had the Cacio de Peppa, which was 'ok'. The recommended budino for dessert was over the top.

    I did not know what to expect here but I am so glad to have gone. Would go again. The chefs do some marvelous pairings of fruits & vegetables in the salads. Almost magical! The homemade pasta was just enough, tasty & satisfying. The beef was a total treat: the NY strip steak. I would order the creamy potatoes & foraged mushrooms again. Great bar drinks & wonderful wine list. Many dishes are made to share.

    The Restaurant at North Block (hotel) went through at least two stages of evolution before arriving at today's very attractive offering. The decor is striking yet comfortable, with visually stunning giant moonlights and a high ceiling that encourages conversation. The menu is a short list of expertly executed, fresh, modern versions of favorite dishes, usually with an innovative but not silly twist. The wine list is similarly short, with thoughtful selections offering excellent value from local and international producers. The staff well trained, welcoming, and efficient. Highly recommended by this wine industry local, who especially appreciates the stellar burger and the steamed mussels.

    Everything on the carefully thought out menu sounds tasty, which makes choosing a challenge. Fortunately, you can't go wrong no matter what you pick - it's all delicious, high quality cuisine that is beautifully prepared and presented. The staff is just-right friendly and attentive. The decor is elegant and relaxed, with interesting touches that attract the eye (loved the huge spherical pendant lights). The wine list is small but thoughtful, and they even made a sly joke about a non-alcoholic cocktail they called the Nah-groni (which tasted a whole lot like the real thing). I can't wait to go back.

    My husband and I ate dinner here on Friday night. It was one of the best dining experiences that we’ve had recently. The restaurant itself is beautiful inside. The cocktail menu was one of the most inventive I’ve seen-true mixologists who made amazing drinks. Every course was beautiful on the plate and bursting with flavor. The bolognese was as good as in Tuscany and the fish was perfectly cooked. I hardly ever write reviews, but I’m writing this because our meal was outstanding!

    We came for the New Year's Eve tasting menu. The presentation of the food was immaculate, but it just didn't taste good unfortunately. The service staff seemed very amateur for such a pricey place in such a classy town. With two cocktails a piece, our tasting menu for two ran nearly $500. I couldn't recommend this restaurant less, I can't imagine it will last in a town like Yountville.

    We would not recommend this restaurant due to the outrageous prices. For example the cheeseburger was $25 without fries which could ordered for an additional $6. The tomato looked like a sliced cherry tomato on all three burgers ordered. I had the king salmon dish @ $41. Very small 2x3 inch serving. Tasted good though. Bloody Mary was $17 with a measured amount of vodka. We enjoy fine dining and are willing to pay for a quality experience. They also do not disclose the prices on their online menu.

    This restaurant recently changed management, chef, decor and staff while keeping the original name. I was curious about the change but was quite disappointed. I ate there many times under the old regime, and it was famous for its wood burning oven, its wonderful fresh bread and authentic pizza. Many of the dishes were Pasta del Fornaio style, or just baked in the oven. It followed in the style of the earlier restaurant by celebrity Chef Reddington. These things were gone. The food that we ate included some grievously overcooked and dried out halibut, and a pasta Cacio e Pepe that was over sauced and resembled al Fredo. The food is just less Italian than it used to be, which might explain why only three tables were in play at 7:00. If they are to be there long, reforms need to start with the kitchen. It's a beautiful spot and I hope they come around.

    We had the Halibut that was on the dry side and not much flavor. The carrots were slathered in what seemed to be pureed sweet potato. The lemon dessert was good.

Both the food and wine menu is just right adventurous Big use of local farms and their produce and also sourced specialty Italian fancy truffles and 75 year aged Modena vinegar and more surprises. Save room for desserts !! Easy parking - stroll thru the gorgeous boutique hotel courtyard too and in the good weather seating there too

    Staff very courteous, beautiful restaurant, creative dishes, BUT next time I will ask for dressing on the side because my beautiful salad had too much acidity probably from vinegar ( I couldn’t finish it and I am a salad eater!) my halibut was too salty ( I couldn’t finish it) and my husband’s New York steak was too salty as well. The side options are not meant for one person so I wish our sever would have let us know that it was too much food for 2people since my husband also ordered a side dish besides 2 also too abundant appetizers meant to be for 2 or more people. The quince compote we had for desert was excellent.

    The garden salad was large and excellent; tuna tartare was nice tho not especially flavorful so somewhat overwhelmed by lemon; Pasta Bolognese was very good (enough but modest portion); the duck breast was good but very rare despite being ordered medium; one in our party had the squash as a main which was really good but was a tiny amount (I mean, it's squash...put more food in the bowl!); homemade sourdough bread was delicious when it finally came more than halfway through the meal. The chairs and some of the banquets were comfortably padded which was much appreciated and noise level was good (lively but we were able to talk w/o yelling). I'd go back but order carefully and ask more questions about portion sizes.
