Farmstead at Long Meadow Ranch

738 Main St
Saint Helena, CA 94574
(707) 963-4555

With a reservation @ 7 pm, we weren’t seated till 7:43, on a Monday evening. Not cool.

High ceiling, wood, open kitchen, all to my liking. Food was good, so was service. The corkage fee is $5, which they donate to different organizations each month.
