Cellars at The White Buffalo Club offers the only New York style ambiance seven days a week in its USDA Prime beef steakhouse. Excellent drinks and service bolster the most versatile menu in town that boasts fresh seafood entrees, excellent salads and appetizers, as well as its staple, sizzling prime steak. Not to be missed, with over 1,100 bottles of wine in house, is a wine experience carefully designed to match the award winning menu. Two blocks off town square on the corner of Millward and Gill. Private dining and large groups available upon request. Reservations recommended.

"First time at the WBC. It's a fairly small and intimate underground space, but not cramped. Service was excellent, thoughtful and not rushed with good suggestions. The garlic fries are great, but even better are the fresh potato chips from the bar menu - ask for them. The bison ribeye was outstanding, perfectly cooked and juicy. Lots of tasty sides to choose from also. As expected, a fairly spendy menu, so be prepared for the bill."

The Kitchen offers modern American cuisine, an extensive wine list and creative fresh cocktails. Located just 1 block off the square, The Kitchen boasts a beautiful outdoor deck in the summer. Enjoy the freshest fish from our crudo bar along with all natural meats, fresh pasta, and seasonal vegetables.

"Don't leave here without ordering the luxury shrimp appetizer - incredibly tasty and large portion. The Korean bison sandwich large and very tasty, kale pasta excellent as well. Nice wine list, excellent attentive service. The warm cookie dessert large and to be shared. Definitely worth a visit for good eata"

FARM, at The Carneros Inn is a restaurant dedicated to food that accompanies wine. We believe in well-balanced, comforting, full-flavored dishes that are simple in concept but complex in taste, emphasizing the natural flavors of the ingredients. We craft our own breads, pastries and Artisan Charcuterie products using our passion for experimentation, and respect of tradition. Our inspiration comes from access to the finest organic and sustainably raised ingredients that we source primarily within a 150 mile radius of Carneros, to harvest food that is at the peak of its season and flavor. The food we prepare supports and nurtures ourselves, our guests, and our land.<br /><br />Our dress code is business casual. For men, please adhere to no hats, shorts, or sandals in the dining room. Jackets are not required.

"We had a super dinner at Farm. The space is large, filled with light, and even when filled not noisy. Service well done, not pushy but moved along at a reasonable and enjoyable pace. Excellent wine list, many local wines from the valley, as well as an excellent selection - mostly reasonable in price - from further afield. Had a nice restrained but evolving pinot from anderson valley
I had the beets for a starter (ok, that's the main ingredient, but with crunchies, some leaves, some soft cheese, etc), and the lamb 3 ways for dinner. Scrumptious. An excellent array of coconut inspired morsels for dessert. The Jidori chicken and the carrots were excellent as well by report.
A splendid evening!"

Located in the heart of Napa Valley! 1 Mile North of Yountville on Highway 29. Take a walk around the grounds or through the vineyard after your meal. You are sure to fall in love with our property. We have 25 raised beds of herbs and vegetables that supply our kitchen on a daily basis so take a minute to stroll around and see what is ready to be harvested! If you are celebrating a Birthday, Anniversary, or other special occasion, please note that restaurant policy is to provide custom handwriting on the plate of the person celebrating when you order dessert.

"A beautiful summer evening outside on the patio, looking out at the restaurant gardens, then vineyards, then the hills to the west. Sky turning pastel pink. Ambience - awesome.
An eclectic menu - we mainly noshed on small plates - the flatbread with figs, fontina, and thin sliced ham; tempura okra with honey mustard dipping sauce; a nice salad with grilled peaches; awesome - incredible grilled artichoke; prawns with multiple sauces; and outrageous seared scallops with a corn/almond/whole pea mix that was on the surface, well different, but in the mouth and nose great. And we split a mint creme brulee with lemon verbana surgar and blueberries - perfect end. Service was excellent and friendly. Had a super nice storybook zin. Super evening!"
