Quiet, unpretentious restaurants with great food are what we look for. Reasonable pricing rounds out the needs that have us searching and now finding such restaurant in St. Helena. Right downtown and an easy walk from our hotel.

This was our second time to Cook. The food was very good although the choices were not as extensive as I remembered. The atmosphere was relatively quiet and romantic.

One of our favorite places, we love coming to Cook. We went for an early dinner. We started off with Padron peppers; delicious! We then enjoyed some pasta, cavatelli and fettucini. We had an enjoyable dinner. No reservations needed since we went early.
