Fodor's Review

Dark-wood walls, subdued lighting, and red leather banquettes make for a perpetually clubby mood at this trusty Rutherford hangout. Many entrées—steaks, burgers, fish, succulent rotisserie chicken, and barbecued pork ribs—emerge from an oak-fired grill operated by master technicians. So, too, do starters such as the grilled jumbo artichokes and the iron-skillet corn bread, a ton of butter being the secret of success with both. The French dip sandwich is a local legend, and the wine list includes rare selections from Caymus and other celebrated producers at (for Napa) reasonable prices. You can also opt for a well-crafted cocktail. In good weather the patio, popular for its bar, fireplace, and rocking chairs, is open for full meal service or drinks and appetizers.
