Decided not to fight traffic and drive back to the city on Friday afternoon, so I'm going to need a place to have dinner. Looking to keep dinner under $100 pre-tip.

Considering Ubuntu at the moment..but not completely sold..Open to any type of food.

    I love Ubuntu but I have been known to spend $60 on lunch alone and am still a bit hungry. For two of you for $100, I don't think you will be sated.

    For $100, as others have mentioned, Bistro Sabor and Carpe Diem are great choices -- as is the previously mentioned Grace's Table.

    You could wander Oxbow Market or -- even better! -- consider getting to Brix for their happy hour! Their bar menu is half-price from 4:00 to 6:00 and is really exceptional. You can get a whole bunch of really great food and wine and stay within your budget.

    I have taken girlfriends there and footed the bill and only spent $60. The timing will be good for you as well as then you are hitting the road as the traffic is beginning wane...

      Do you know how the bar menu (not happy hour) is at Press? Yelp has mixed reviews for regular dining. We're going next month & just may try bar dining at a couple of places as there are no tables available at Redd, our preferred choice.
      Thanks.

      This could be an option...

        Could we wait until someone eats there before declaring it great or even good?

          Perhaps OP is not averse to trying a brand new place... can decipher himself whether to take a chance or not.

        If you are open to dining as the chef suggests perhaps Ad Hoc? If not, Bistro Jeanty serves up some very authentic French Bistro fare in a lovely little setting.

          UHockey - no way the OP could get out of Ad Hoc or Bistro Jeanty for $60.

            Ah - guess I was thinking <100 per person.

            I think one could do it at Jeanty, but Ad-Hoc would be ~$65pp after tax.

          Mustards Grill in Yountville: http://www.mustardsgrill.com/

          It was my favorite place we went to in Napa Valley and we went to a lot of really great places. Atmosphere is good too.
