This review is for the cooking school. I took a week long boot camp cooking course. I enjoyed the experience very much. Although I consider myself an experienced home cook the course was very informative and a treat to be able to work in a professional kitchen and hone my skills. It was cool to be in the same kitchen with all the professional student and see what they were working on. They have a wide variety of course for the home cook. It was also enjoyable to be able to wake up every day to the beautiful smell of grapes as it was during harvest season.

Worst experience ever! First of all coming out with a party of 16 and book reservations at this so called desirable location. After not receiving any update or email from the restaurant decided to call back in to make sure we were good to go. I was just informed that they do not take reservations for a party of 12 or more - funny as I booked them two weeks ago and the individual on the line didn't inform me of this. We knew rules in Napa were crazy at restaurants, hence why we tried to book reservations across the board. Thanks to CIA for starting my wife's 40th birthday celebration on a crappy note.

Extremely disappointed. After hearing and reading about the CIA we were very excited to be going to the Greystone for dinner Thursday, September 25, 2014. For a restaurant with the notoriety that it has, the service was pathetic. We waited and waited, waitress after waitress just kept on walking by. Finally a waitress shows up to take our drink order. Not even water was delivered. When we asked her about the menu she couldn't even tell us what the food was or how it was prepared. When she walked away my husband and I said to each other...she doesn't even know what's on the menu. After we placed our order, she walked away and left us holding the menus. Class Act—NOT! For the price of a bottle of wine....no one even bothered to pour our glasses. My chicken was dry and the vegi's were prepared with a liquid smoke flavor, but to the point they were not edible. To many other places to go in the Napa region, so go to one of them and pass the CIA up.

As someone who attended this facility to hone my cooking skills, I was quite impressed with the facility and the instructors. The curriculum was forward looking and was appropriately paced. I also attended the CIA facility in New Hyde Park, NY. My strongest appreciation for Greystone was for the embedded farm-to-table philosophy in everything we were taught.

We signed up for one of their Saturday cooking courses. The description made us think that we would be learning some new cooking skills while making Italian cuisine. Instead we were given almost no instruction except for the direction that we had to choose a group and follow the recipes given to that group. The mise en place was disorganized and we had to find some of our ingredients ourselves. There was almost no oversight and instruction, so the results for most dishes were less than spectacular. The promised critique was never given, no feedback provided and no skills taught. We walked away after spending $250 each with a wooden spoon, a chef's apron and no new learning.

We had a large party & decided to eat at this restaurant with high expectations. We were all very disappointed, not only is the food subpar to bland but is also EXTREMELY over priced. Our bill was over $1,300.00 for 7 people. The food wasn't very flavorful, except the one oyster stuffed ravioli they served that tastes of seawater mush. The reason I gave 3 stars instead of 1 is the service was excellent, but that doesn't make up for the large bill and very small servings of bland food.
