Our mission is to bring you a seasonal menu, rooted in American tradition that showcases the Mid-Atlantic's ingredients. Our produce is organic or sustainable whenever possible; our meats are naturally-raised; our seafood wild or sustainable. We support local artisanal cheese makers, growers, ranchers, fisherman, and encourage you to do the same by buying local at our farmer's market or grocery.

"Redwood used to be a decent restaurant that featured fresh farm-to-table cuisine. Although never four stars (by Open Table standards), it was a solid 3. At a recent dinner, I ordered the daily special, which turned out to be rather inedible and hardly worthy of being a featured entrée. The salad was pretty much thrown together and visually unappealing. The manager was good enough to remove my awful entrée from the tab. Others in my party were similarly unimpressed with their meals. Somewhere along the line, Redwood went astray. Either management or the kitchen needs to raise their game, otherwise there will to be a huge vacant space in the middle of Bethesda Row."

Open for lunch and dinner<br /><br /><br /><br />Francis Ford Coppola shares his personal pantheon of recipes at RUSTIC, Francis’s Favorites, the winery’s full-service restaurant. RUSTIC’s menu embraces international as well as traditional Italian dishes, with an emphasis on family-style cooking that features fresh, seasonal ingredients sourced from the property’s organic herb and produce garden. Authentic, Neapolitan-style pizzas are also a specialty.<br /><br /><br /><br />A focal point of the dining room at RUSTIC is the Parrilla (pronounced “pah-REE-jah”), an authentic Argentine grill. Manned by the restaurant’s dedicated Asador, or grill-master, it provides a true South American experience of delicious, wood-grilled meats.<br /><br /><br /><br />RUSTIC offers service in our casual dining room and on an outdoor terrace overlooking the vineyards of Alexander Valley. A bar adjacent to the restaurant also serves a full complement of cocktails and an extensive wine and beer

"Very touristy, but if you're a tourist, that's not necessarily a bad thing. Don't expect fantastic food, but it's a fun experience. The Coppola Winery is worth the trip, sort of a mini museum to the great Francis Ford Coppola films. If you go for the food alone, you'll probably be disappointed. But if you go for the overall experience, then you'll have a good time."
