In wine country with friends and went to Cindy's on a recommendation from our hotel. Excellent service. Friendly. Great cocktail menus. Nice decor, lively environment but not too noisy. Food was creative and delicious. Our server was great. Would go back anytime.

Had an excellent meal with a group of family/friends at Cindy's. The food was good and somewhat innovative, and the service was excellent. Prices were moderate, especially for Napa Valley. Highly recommended.
