We had a great lunch at Brasswood. We had a group of 6 and everyone left satisfied with their meal and service. The restaurant is perfectly located if wine tasting in St Helena.

We just had dinner at Brasswood and I can understand how it received a Travelers Choice award! What a fantastic experience! We had a great table outside, the weather a perfect 78 degrees! We started with the fresh mozzarella cheese with a side of prosciutto...and pesto. Our server delivered it, cut the melted mozzarella into strips and laid it on top of toasted bread with olive oil. We also had the Arancini with pesto and duck bolognese sauce. All I can say is WOW!!! What a great start to our dinner!! I ordered the pork chop which came with Brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes. My wife had the chicken piccata with broccoli and potatoes. The portions were just right , cooked perfectly and the food was served at the right temperature. It was a perfect evening!!More

Once again, I have to write a review for another restaurant that claims to serve Italian food. So, here goes. I have eaten here numerous times, over the last 5 years, and it has steadily gone down hill. However, my "dinner" a couple of days...ago is the last straw. The only decent dish was the warm mozzarella on bread !!! The only dish we ate that required cooking was the Pappardelle with short rib sugo, and it was absolutely horrible. It tasted like very acidic, tomato sauce, from a can. The short ribs were completely over cooked, i.e. destroyed. To add insult to a fairly expensive dinner, there was 3 or 4 pieces of pasta, covered in this awful sugo sauce. After all this, I was asked how the food was, so I complained. My server said he would speak with the chef, yeah right !!! Later, he then asks me what else I would like to order ;-) I said, "give me the check." I used to recommend this restaurant. Maybe, they changed ownership, management, I don't know.More

We were on holiday in Napa from Fortaleza and were recommended this restaurant by a local. The fresh mozzarella was to die for and beautifully presented at table by our server Neil. We also tried the heirloom tomatoes which were to die for. This is...how tomatoes used to taste like! Great food, great atmosphere and great service. Would definitely recommend.More

We have supported this restaurant since it opened. Going at least twice a week rain or shine. So their Winter season is over and now we are in high season. Rules changed for locals. Ever since they opened we had free corkage as we own...a Winery. We always tipped 30% + and we only drank wine we make and it is not on their list. Today they hit us with a $30 fee to open a bottle at the bar.No ice bucket just pull the cork,$30 ????? We can order a glass of water with ice and lemon at no charge. But pull a cork is $30.I was enjoying a conversation with a friend and the duty manager interrupts the conversation to tell me about their new policy. Very unprofessional. Our alternative is to pay $16 plus for an ok wine and a very small pour. Farmstead charges $10 corkage and it goes to charity. Rutherford grill nothing.I guess Restaurants are having a hard time and squeezing people for anything they can get. Goodbye, Brasswood.More

The service and food was fantastic.Actually a very nice selections of nice wines by the glass. Many great restaurants in St. Helena, but definitely worth another visit. The risotto duck confit, the NY steak and the golden beat salad all were heavenly.

With only 30-40 minutes for a quick bite, our group of 6 ladies visited the kitchen. We ordered sandwiches, glasses of wine, chips and mozzarella. The service was fast, pleasant and the mozzarella was AMAZING. It was served on toast, with an herb olive oil...drizzle. We all agreed it was delicious.More

We were given a recommendation for this restaurant from our wine educator at Rombauer. And boy was that a good recommendation. All of the food we ordered, from the fresh mozzarella appetizer to the citrus creme brulee dessert, was amazing. I don't think I've ever...had anything quite like the mozzarella, it has a unique texture and is covered in tasty olive oil and herbs. The scallop main tasted great and was nicely presented, and the duck risotto was a winner as well. The place was pretty packed for a Wednesday night. Get there early or make a reservation because this is THE place to get dinner if you find yourself north of St Helena.More

While wine tasting, several wine staffers recommeded Brasswood. We were not disappointed. We were told you have to have the roasted mozzarella. It is a must for an appetizer. Our server, Eileen, was great, very attentive, knew the menu well. They have wine choices other...than the Brasswood selections. Will we return? YES!More

We were excited to try out this restaurant as the menu was what drew us in. Upon arrival we opted to sit at the bar, ordered a couple of drinks and an appetizer. We were munching all day from wine tasting, so decided to split...a entree. I don’t remember the bartenders name, probably because of the terrible experience we had with him. He’s definitely on my top of least attentive servers I’ve ever encountered. I use to bartend and loved working in the bar, mostly because of the new faces I would see everyday. Interaction is key to your guests and our bartender lacked that amongst others. When we received our bill, to our surprise we were charged extra, due to us splitting an entree. Of course I asked why we were charged and he stated, we typically charge if entrees are split, which is absolutely ridiculous in my opinion. First off, if there’s additional fees to split, please inform your staff to let all guests know before ordering. I doubt we’ll every return back to this establishment.More

We found Brasswood thanks to reviews on TripAdvisor. It’s a large restaurant with a great bar. We visited this restaurant on our first night in Napa. We ordered a bottle of Storybook wine and shared two starters, the burrata with heirloom tomatoes and the beef...carpaccio. The carpaccio was very skimpy in size. The burrata, however, was plentiful and so creamy delicious. It was prepared table side. I came to find out my fave restaurant, Michael Chiarello’s Tra Vigne’s menu came to this restaurant when they closed. Yay! The burrata was just like Tra Vigne. Yum! For dinner, my husband had the Herb Infused Pappardelle & Short Rib Sugo and loved it. I had the Butternut Squash Ravioli with sage brown butter, parmesan and amaretti crumble. Oh my goodness! The best most flavorful raviolis I’ve ever eaten. The portion sizes on the entrees were generous. The staff and our server were friendly and attentive. I’d definitely go back!More
