Overlooking the Napa River, Angele is among the top unstuffy French restaurants in the area, and it’s lighter and more Californian than others like Bistro Jeanty and Bouchon, says Wendy san.

Everything is outstanding, from generous starters of quail salad, peach salad with arugula and Serrano ham, and tart Lyonnaise, to entrees of pork medallions, spring chicken, and salmon with ravioli. The pommes frites arrive piping hot and are among the best Wendy san has ever had. Desserts shine, too, including profiteroles and warm chocolate cake.

With a nice bar, a lovely view, and all-day service, Angele is a winner in the North Bay.
