Cuisine: Mediterranean

Description & Atmosphere
Many of you will recognize this historic landmark building as the former Christian Brothers Winery, just north of St. Helena. At night, it looks spectacular.

Wine Spectator Greystone Restaurant shares the building with The Culinary Institute of America. From the outside, the restaurant looks very formal, but inside, it's quite casual with a fun, vibrant atmosphere.

As you enter the large dining room, you can't miss the copper-covered open kitchen, enclosed by a short wall of colorful blue and terra-cotta tiles (photo right). There's also a nice lounge area with an inviting fireplace and comfortable seats where you can enjoy a pre-dinner drink while waiting for your table.

Flavors of the Mediterranean are highlighted and the restaurant also grows its own organic herbs and vegetables — providing diners with the freshest of ingredients.

The Tasting Extravaganza — a delectable assortment of appetizers served on small plates — is a great way to begin your meal, especially if there are more than two of you dining. The Monterey Calamari, Grilled Shrimp, Bunuelos of Cod
and the Grape Leaves
all make a perfect prelude to your meal.

First courses include a delightful Cream of Cauliflower Soup, Pumpkin Ravioli, Torchon of Foie Gras, and a light Belgian Endive & Watercress Salad.

Second courses are sensational — Sautéed Millbrook Venison, Nantucket Bay Scallops, tender Braised Beef Short Ribs and Seared Atlantic Salmon. Rotisserie Chicken and Duck are also featured on the menu.

If you still have room for dessert, the Creme Brulée is outrageously good.

Private Party Rooms
The Wine Spectator Greystone Restaurant is a perfect destination for entertaining your clients and guests.

The Food Arts Dining Room
can seat up to 10 guests. Or for your special event with fewer than 125 guests, you may prefer family-style seating surrounding the show kitchens, or enjoy the unparalleled panoramas of the Valley’s vineyards, including their own, from the Terrace.
