This restaurant is rated #1 in Napa for good reason. The food is outstanding! The oysters are fresh and sweet. The clam chowder is fantastic. Loved sitting at the communal tables and getting to know the people around us. Highly recommend this restaurant!

This is located in the Oxbow market and the food is high quality and delicious. The chowder is not as thick as traditional new england chowder but it is just as rich and flavorful. The oysters and VERY good.

You have never had clam chowder like this before. It is amazing. The Washington raw oysters are the largest and the grilled oysters are delicious. You cannot go wrong here with anything you get. Staff is great. My second time here.

I wanted something warm and yummy on a rainy day. A big bowl of clam chowder did the trick! I've ordered it many times before. It is always very delicious. Casual atmosphere, good service and good beer added to the cozy feeling.

Sitting outdoors and having oysters and champagne can be challenging when the weather does not cooperate; bring layers! The oysters are as fresh as they get and the accompaniments are outstanding; you can bring your own picnic as well and just let them shuck or barbecue the oysters for you!

We visited the Hog Island Oyster Company located in the Oxbow Market in downtown Napa. It occupies a corner of the market and limited seating is at the few tables within the roped off area and the counter facing the small open kitchen.

We needed a light dinner and decided to come here. Seating is extremely tight and luckily we went late so there was a communal table available....not a communal fan. We had several different oysters and crab cakes. All very good.
