unpretentious wine country?

My boyfriend and I will be in Calistoga in two weeks and will want to dine out one night in Calistoga, St. Helena, or perhaps Yountville. (Napa is probably too far.) We'd love good fish and vegetarian options. Are there any restaurants in that area that don't have super fancy food? We're not concerned about the price, but we'd love a menu that isn't all the usual foie gras, goat cheese salad, stewed rabbit, eggplant napolean, etc. etc. I love Chez Panisse and Delfina in the Bay Area, and Quartino in NYC ... is there anything along these lines in the wine country? Simple preparations, lots of fresh veggies and fish, creative but not over the top? It's our one-year anniversary, so romantic and quiet would be a plus. Thanks in advance!
