I had the good luck to host clients here for a company function. Absolutely lovely evening. It's a gorgeous building and the staff- class act. And of course the food was stunning. Definitely worth a visit if you are the area. Nice gift shop too!

If you're driving by this school north of Saint Helena, definitely stop in. It's a classic building with tons of history and terrific food smells.

Agree with the previous comments. Strongly recommend that you make a reservation at the conservatory where the students are making every effort to create a more elegant environment in a beautiful setting.
