Eats of Napa Valley

Wine may be the reason you visit Napa but the food will keep you there! We had numerous great meals in Napa. Every restaurant we dined at had been recommended to us by a friend or I'd found recommended on some blogs.  

Entrance to Celadon
Celadon - One of the most enchanting restaurants I've ever been to. The rustic elegant decor is particularly lovely outside. We dined out under the bistro lights. The meal was as wonderful as the spectacular as the decor and vibe. It's advertised as upscale eclectic comfort food. The scallops were some of the best I've ever had. If you have room for dessert, I would highly recommend the banana creme brulee. 

Gott's Roadside - I'll just start with this, it's worth the wait! The burgers, fries and shakes are not to be missed. This roadside burger joint has lots of outdoor seating and picnic tables. We all picked a different gourmet burger to eat and shared some fries! It was really delicious.

Farmstead - Local ingredients create special american fare. They have some unique salads and special dishes. The fresh ingredients are also extended to their cocktails! After tasting lots of wine it was nice to have a refreshing cocktail as we ate in the renovated barn restaurant. They have a cute shop and lots of outdoor seating so even if you have to wait there is plenty to keep you entertained.

Fremont Diner - This is comfort food at its best! One of the best breakfasts I've had in a long time. The vibe is very country diner and we all commented that we felt more like we were in a small town in Oklahoma than in Napa. The biscuits were huge and fluffy and everything on the menu was tempting. I recognized several of the pieces of decor as things that my grandparents owned!

Ristorante Allegria - Italian food at its best! The restaurant is a converted historic bank. It's packed even on week nights which is always a good sign to me. Come hungry and ready to wait a little bit. My advice is to get a drink from the bar and take in the cool atmosphere while you wait!
