Charming venue and delightful meal! 3 couples on vacation and after a wonderful day of wine tasting we completed our day with a reservation at CBK. We had a variety of entrees and all were excellent! The BBQ meatloaf seemed to be the overwhelming winner after a taste sampling by all. The waiter recommended the S'More dessert....also not the least... More

A popular spot and I can understand why. The food is approachable but everything comes with an inventive twist. I would definitely visit again if I came back to the area.

A very charming place in Napa to have dinner. We went there for an early dinner and the service was wonderful. We shared 4 dishes and they all delicious: meatloaf, fish & chips, bibam bap and fried quail with vermicelli. I would definitely return with more friends. Lovely experience.

This was our second visit to CBK. Great food and service! My husband enjoyed the meatloaf. I had the chicken. I would definitely order that again!

My wife and I dined here for the first time last week. From our perspective, the best food in St. Helena. And we've tried most restaurants in the area. First off, we had the Wood Grilled Asparagus and Ahi Tuna Poke. Not only were these starters delicious, but unique as well. The chef is obviously creative and there is not... More

Surprisingly, I enjoyed my light dinner there despite a day of food tasting at the Culinary Institute of America, jet lag and unsettled stomach. My daughter and I shared the Wild Mushroom Toast, Wood Grilled Asparagus and Campfire Pie. The pie looked amazing and would be a hit with children and adults with a sweet tooth.

We enjoyed lunch very much. I had a house made bratwurst sausage that was terrific. My wife enjoyed the halibut tostada. Nice wine list. Restaurant is full of art. Very good, we will go again.

This would truly be a 5 star review if it wasn't for the pompous bartender, who likes to talk about patrons and make snotty comments when they leave. Anyway.....the food was stellar. We had the rabbit tostada which was amazing. Heaped with rabbit, greens, beans, cheese and flavor. It was elegant. We also shared the fried quail. The quail was... More
