About the restaurant
Visitors to Sonoma County and guests at Vintners Resort, a luxurious Sonoma Wine Country hotel in Santa Rosa, can enjoy fresh, delicious fare for breakfast, lunch, or brunch at River Vine.

The menu by John Ash & Co. restaurant Executive Chef Tom Schmidt showcases seasonal foods and produce from local sources, including the inn’s very own gardens.

The elegantly-rustic café features a circular dining room with expansive windows that open onto beautiful vineyards and gardens; a rock fireplace and wood ceiling beams that bring natural elements to create an inviting, warm, and comfortable ambiance; and custom iron ceiling light fixtures and walls sconces that add notes of elegance and grace. The café provides an array of seating options indoors and out, including quaint, smaller dining areas for intimate duos, as well as a private room for up to 80 guests for meetings or special events.

As always, a fantastic experience. I met a work colleague for a breakfast meeting and River Vine was the perfect place — quiet, beautiful, comfortable atmosphere, respectful service and delicious food. You can’t go wrong with RV. Also, plenty of parking, which is also a perk!

Can’t wait to try dinner there! Everything was great, but the salmon eggs Benedict appears to have been sitting just a short while, the hollandaise sauce didn’t appear fresh on top. Eggs not very warm. But everything was delicious.

About the restaurant
Old school cooking and fried chicken for breakfast. Let me explain:

Wether at our location in the rolling hills of beautiful Potrero Hill or our Marina location, which is steps away from the iconic Golden Gate Bridge, C&B perfectly encompasses edgy food and San Francisco's endless local activities. With my father being a Texas native with a Middle Eastern background, our American Brunch menu spills of eclectic ways of pairing fried chicken to an atypical breakfast. From our specialty of Chicken and Waffles to Asian dishes like Nasi Goreng to our tribute to Morocco for their Shakshouka, you’ll find a dish anyone can connect with. Not to mention, my father spent years in search of the perfect pancake recipe (finally!!). And yes, our proteins halal certified. So rest assured, a humane menu is of our top most priority.

Pull up a chair in our outdoor parklet, order a coffee, and come vibe with us. See ya’ll soon.

Everything was tasty. Just wish they had more regular egg dishes not accompanied by fried chicken & waffle. Staff was super friendly; a +. Kinda noisy. Outdoor tables could have heaters. Coffee could also be better. Good value though.

About the restaurant
When Jim & Jill Brandt decided to open the Napa General Store they wanted to create a casual space that reflected the history of the building that they had rescued along the banks of the Napa River.
It was important to them that the Napa General Store was authentic in every detail, and that includes making their cornmeal pancakes from scratch, squeezing oranges for juice and using local farm-raised eggs for breakfast.
Their hearts told them that if they put together the friendliest staff in Napa, and treated guests like they were home, that good things would follow.
After more than ten years of welcoming locals and visitors alike it seems their instincts were correct. Locals have their favorite tables and visitors return year after year for the quality, value and down-home charm.
The Napa General Store café continues a tradition of casual riverside dining in a relaxed and comfortable atmosphere (Fido welcome on the back deck).

You never seace to amaze me, I even ordered a take out and it was timed perfectly to leave with us!! Great service, great food and when you’re on a “time crunch” it’s nice to know we have a restaurant that understands this, especially for Lunch. To top it off; I ordered the beignets for the first time and OMG they are absolutely amazing.

About the restaurant
Hi Friends,

We have gone to a full QR Code ordering system but don't be afraid, our team is available to walk you through any questions you may have!

We understand that planning is overrated and spontaneity is the spice of life! That's why we always keep availability for walk-ins of groups of 2 or more. Simply walk in and our friendly team will be happy to accommodate you at the door. Big groups, no problem! We now take limited reservations for groups of 2 or more. Please note that while reservations provide a guaranteed table, we strive to accommodate walk-ins as much as possible. Big groups, no problem! However, during peak hours, there might be a short wait time for walk-in groups. Grab a maitai at the bar or play a game of pool while you wait - and hey, you might even meet someone new.

Thank you for reserving with us at Palm House!

Great place to eat with your dog. This place has great food, lots of cocktail choices and is super dog friendly. They even have a few dog dishes to choose from - but a local gem even without a dog.
