My brother who travels all over the country, told my husband and I that we had to eat here if we were traveling to Napa. When we arrived, I was stunned at the large castle-like building. Then we discovered that the Gatehouse was literally that,...More

This restaurant is run by the students of the Culinary Institute of America in Saint Helena. And they're doing a great job! The food is sublime, the ambience is perfect, service is warm and friendly. A tiny flaw in the 'logistics': the aperitive wine arrived...More
