Napa Valley offers more than just stellar wines, there is also the fabulous food to pair with it! We recently had a client stay at one of our favorite wine country hotels, Solage Calistoga and she came back with delectable recommendations for where to eat and drink (more) in St. Helena and Calistoga.
This local farm-to-table spot is great for either lunch or dinner. Grab a table in their minimalist dining room or snap up an outdoor table on a warm day.
Sam's Social Club
This restaurant serves seasonal napa valley fare for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There is a lounge if you need (another) glass of local wine and even many for the kiddos.
Grab a pastry or sandwich at this cute bakery in Calistoga after exploring the town. They even have gluten-free options.
A new restaurant with french flair and creole influences with specialities like French onion soup and specials like gumbo. Open for brunch, dinner and New Orleans style cocktails.
Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch
This place is a must for foodies looking for authentic upscale comfort food, organic produce and local line. Housed in a barn with an open kitchen, you can sample the family-style menu favorites like fried chicken and meat loaf.
Goose and Gander
This highly recommend spot features pub classics and rustic local cuisine with a large cocktail menu and big comfy booths for groups. There is also a lovely patio for dining al fresco.
Your best bet is taking an Uber from the airport to your hotel, however, once you in town, Uber isn’t really an option. For tours, try Napa Valley Transportation (ask for Tom!). For transportation to and from restaurants, it’s easy to call Napa Valley Red Cab, just be prepared as the cabs can add up quickly.
