This is a great place to watch the game, visit with friends. The food is all great. I love the rabbit tostada but the meatloaf is great. Wine selection is also great.

Sit at the bar. Say hello to Cindy, recently with architect glasses and a clean chef's coat. Appreciate the food, wine, local winemakers who stop in, exceptional staff. St Helena could have a meat loaf competition. Cindy's is hard to beat.

Tasty lunch when visiting Dad. Great ambiance, service, and food. Shared the special adult (loaded) grilled cheese, salad, and a glass of wine. Perfect for mid day refresher!
