L.A. hound searching for low-key, Chow-ish dining in or near Napa Valley

Hello from L.A.!

I am helping a nice couple plan their 3-month dating anniversary celebration. They are both professionals from SoCal, and will be spending 3 nights on a May weekend at The Carneros Inn.

French Laundry is already on their list one night, but what they're looking for on all the other meals are "low-key" but quality eateries. Romantic is a plus. Doesn't have to be low budget, but not "stuffy" dining, either. "Hot tables" (such as Redd?) are out, since they've "had it up to here" with the reservations thing from French Landry.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance!

J.L.
