There are two things Napa Valley does not lack, wineries and restaurants. With so many dining options it might be difficult for visitors to decide where to eat a meal. To help make your decision we have selected three restaurants we recommend. These restaurants each offer a quality dining experience and are each unique in their own way. Know that whichever restaurant you choose after your meal you will have a happy belly. In alphabetical order we present to you:

Ad Hoc

Front of Ad Hoc - Yountville, CA

Front of Ad Hoc

Chef Thomas Keller is best known for the French Laundry and Bouchon, both very respected fine-dining establishments. In Yountville he expanded his culinary prowess by opening another restaurant, Ad Hoc. What sets Ad Hoc apart is what makes this place a decision-phobic person’s dream. Ad Hoc offers just one menu for every patron. There is no need to hem and haw between two dishes that interest you or worry that your neighbor ordered a better meal. The menu changes daily, but the Buttermilk Fried Chicken is a reoccurring entrée, and a crowd favorite. Each meal has a set price and includes a starter (such as soup or salad), the main entrée, a cheese plate, and dessert.

Reservations are recommended and if you want a preview of what your meal will be you can find the day’s menu on their website. Come with a hearty appetite for the portions are large. Don’t worry though, you can take your leftovers home to enjoy another day. Ad Hoc is on a street made for walking so after dinner work off your meal with a nice stroll.

Gott’s Roadside

Gott's Roadside - Napa, CA

Gott’s Roadside

Gott’s Roadside is casual dining at its finest. The immediate vibe upon entering Gott’s is that of an old-fashioned American Drive-In. If you’re a fan of burgers you will be highly pleased with any of the ten different hamburger options. Each hamburger is made with a 1/3-pound meat patty served on a toasted egg bun. Hamburgers aren’t the only dish Gott’s Roadside serves. You’ll find classics such as French Fries, hot dogs, sodas, and milkshakes. A closer look at the menu and you’ll find that Gott’s is an American establishment with an updated twist. You can order dishes such as salads, fish tacos, and sandwiches. The Ahi Poke Crispy Tacos are a good choice. The tacos are made with crunchy cabbage, fresh tuna, and a big slice of avocado along with a spicy mayo sauce. Gott’s serves a variety of wines and beers.

Gott’s Roadside has two locations in Napa Valley, one in St. Helena and the other in Napa, part of the Oxbow Public Market. There are two other locations as well in California, one in San Francisco’s Ferry Building Marketplace and the other in Palo Alto’s Town & Country Village.

Morimoto Napa

Toro Tartare at Morimoto Napa

When the food you cook grants you the title of being an Iron Chef you know you’re a damn good chef. Chef Masaharu Morimoto is an amazing chef and world-renowned for his culinary skills. Morimoto Napa is the first West Coast restaurant Chef Morimoto opened. It is in Napa’s downtown riverfront. Reservations are available for either lunch or dinner. The restaurant itself has a modern design but wooden tables create a comfortable atmosphere. Outdoor seating offers a nice view of the river.

With an Iron Chef’s backing the food you will eat will be of the highest quality. The attention to detail is shown in how the food is prepared and its presentation. For example, when the Toro Tartare appetizer arrives at your table you’re hesitant to dig in right away. You don’t want to mess up how the toro, wasabi, and nori paste are laid out. The Kakuni, pork belly, melts in your mouth. There is an extensive list of sushi and sashimi. If you are unsure which sushi or sashimi to select order the Chef’s Combination. If you want to sample a few different fishes a good choice is the Chirashi Sushi Rice Bowl. Remember to leave room for one of their unique desserts, such as mango pudding or tofu cheesecake.
