Menu is fixed each day. We were lucky enough to visit on fried chicken day! Fresh salad, cheese course and the best creme brûlée of all time. This is a must when in Yountville. It is bustling, rather noisy and waiters are not welcoming. Food...More

This is a good alternative for the ones that cannot or wouldn't like to spend so much money or the French laundry. Only a fixed (nice) menu with a (not that nice wine pairing). Environment is good and service very good.

I was disappointed with the quality of the meal and the outrageously large portions. For two people, we were given an entire roast chicken in addition to the two side dishes, salad, cheese course, and dessert. The chicken was also cut right in half, making...More

We thought the food here was good, but not sure if it was with the price. If you love fried chicken, its worth a try, but be prepared to open your wallet!

I would say yes. It's family style. I wouldn't let them run around the restaurant but the occasional squeal won't bother anyone.
