The Grill at Meadowood Restaurant Review

: This airy Napa Valley restaurant tries hard to match its first-class hotel surroundings. Outdoor tables enjoy a view of the croquet course, the golf course, and the surrounding woods. The staff, led by chef Arturo Guzman, sweats the small stuff, from artfully arranging a bowl of fresh berries at breakfast, to adding tortilla strips to the hearty roasted tomato soup. Breakfast offerings range more widely than other meals, with the side potatoes flecked with red pepper a highlight. Anchovy-lovers will enjoy the Caesar salad, which features over-size croutons, large leaves of romaine and whole fish, not anchovy paste. Besides salads, the American lunch and dinner offerings include sandwiches, pastas, chicken, seafood and steak, with some of the ingredients fresh from the Relais & Châteaux hotel’s own garden. We like the butternut squash ravioli with crispy sage leaves, while others may be put off by the overabundance of aromatic brown butter. The wine list is understandably impressive, as the Grill shares a cellar---and a roof---with The Restaurant at Meadowood.
