    Hi flowergirl. I suggest posting this on the SF Bay area forum as that forum includes the Napa area. And iff you search the previous posts there you will find lots of suggestions for breakfast and dinners:-)

      Such a broad topic.

      For dinner, I love Mustard's (get the pork chop) and Martini House; Ubuntu is supposedly phenomenal, but I still haven't been. The Keller restaurants speak for themselves.

        I was informed the last time i suggested Martini House, just a few weeks ago, that it is closed. Res ipsa loquitur and doesn't always say good things. If you stick to Napa only breakfast at the Boon Fly Inn. For a little extra mileage, the Fremont Diner.

          Martini House is no more.

          Good food can be found at Terra, Redd, Oenotri and Solbar Kitchen.

          Flowergirl, it would really help if you indicated budgets, locations (up-valley, downtown?), and the sorts of things you like.

          Great ideas for dinners could include anything from wandering around Oxbow Market to the full tasting menu at Morimoto. You can spend as little as $15 on a meal or as much as $500 a person...

          Also, for breakfasts... Full sit-down affairs or exceptional pastries? Most people rave about Bouchon for breakfast but that is a pastry joint. For sit-down breakfasts, I'd head to Boon Fly Cafe in the Carneros District.

            Hi Cost is not an issue. As far as type of food - we are really open. Thanks

              Breakfast is a dud here in the Napa Valley :(

              Dinner, head to Cole's, Mustard's, or Rutherford Grill, you cannot miss. Order hearty fare and enjoy!
