Hubby and I have been wanting to eat here for a while now. So I made reservations on Thurs and left a message. They didn't hear when I wanted it so I had to call them back on Fri. Left another message and Amolly called me back and said she'll put it in the books.

Free small parking lot for their restaurant and plenty of street parking in front.

Once we told the hostess we had reservations she seated up at our 2 person table. Of course there is a huge table that's across from us but they were ok. The restaurant is kinda loud with the music. Hubby recognized a U2 song.

Waiter came by with the pre-fix menu for the day which was: lentil & sweet potato soup; Liberty Farms raised duck leg; Grayson cheese from Virginia w/ orange blossom honey; and chocolate & butterscotch brownie w/ vanilla whipped cream. $45 per person.

Lentil soup was delicious, comes with lots of lentil, Applewood bacon (Keller loves this bacon I read), carrots, soup. I could have just that w/ bread for dinner.

Bread was good-there were 2 types that I don't remember. Some white crusty bread and a Country bread of some type that was darker. Comes with good butter.

The duck leg entree had crispy skin like eating crispy pig skin, and tender duck. red & white cabbage w/ tiny potatoes slices and sliced pears. I thought it was good, not great. Hubby loved the duck. 3 good portions of duck leg-we took 1 slab home since we couldn't finish it. Read in an article that you can ask for seconds on meat entree but we didn't.

Grayson cheese from Virginia w/ orange blossom honey and some roasted pecans. 2 huge slabs of cheese w/ small bottle of honey and some pecans. We enjoyed it, very mild cheese. Enjoyed it w/ the bread.

Chocolate & butterscotch brownies w/ Vanilla whipped cream. Two huge round brownies w/ drizzle of buttserscotch and container of Vanilla whipped cream. We shared one-it was delicious. Served warm, crispy on the outside and warm inside, with the cream it was great. Can't wait to eat the other one tomorrow.

We got 1 Perrier water bottle for $7, but if I was ordering would have just gotten the Yountville Tap Water-the Free stuff.

Hubby also got a glass of Fog Dog Pinot Noir for $10. He liked it w/ the duck.

Subtotal $107 with tax $8.29= $115.29 before tip. They take credit cards.

The have separate men and women bathrooms.

Recommended, but make reservations and come hungry.
