The hospitality staff at the Inn on Randolph is the backbone of our entire business. These ladies are the most hospitable, kind hearted ladies and they add so much to the Inn in each of their own ways. We have compiled a list of their favorite restaurants and wineries in case you wanted to go to a few local favorites!
For a casual lunch or dinner I love Gott's Roadside Diner. It's a classic! I love to order their Mahi Mahi Tacos and they have a gluten free burger that is heaven!
For a nice dinner out or for a special occasion, I love Cole's Chop House. (If you are gluten free just let the waiter know) I love to order their Filet Mignon, and the Crème Brûlée is to die for!
Peju is a family owned and operated, sustainably farmed winery located in the heart of Napa! I love that you can stroll through their gardens, enjoy their contemporary art, all while sipping their award winning wines.
Hall Wines also has a modern art collection that you can enjoy, and their Pinot Noir is my favorite!
Artesa is a fun experience, because you get to leave the stuffy tasting rooms aside and enjoy their wine on the beautiful patio with amazing views. (On a clear day you can see to downtown San Francisco)

Torc is the perfect place to go to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, or just life itself. The menu caters to gluten free guests, and the wine list features fantastic wines from all over the world. If just need a quick bite, the happy hour is also a wonderful experience!
Oenotri, located on First Street in Downtown Napa, features authentic Southern Italian fare. The experience is delicious and fun, and they have an open kitchen so you can watch the action. The menu is seasonal and changes often to reflect what is being sourced from their gardens.The risotto and short rib are a personal favorite, as well as the polenta.
Ehlers. There are no words to describe this organic, biodynamic, and fantastic winery. The Merlot and Cabernet Franc are so smooth and approachable, and the fact that this winery is a nonprofit winery makes the wine taste even better. The people here really make the experience that much better--the team is made up of mostly locals, and they are the most hospitable, genuine, and heartwarming people you will find!
Frog’s Leap. This winery has a special place in my heart, and if you visit you will understand why. Tasting on their porch overlooking the famed Rutherford vineyards, you will find yourself experiencing wine on a completely different level. The winery is family owned and the owner is still the active winemaker. The wines are classic and the staff is remarkable. The best way to experience Frog's Leap is through their tour, where you will leave with more knowledge and appreciation for this land and this valley than you would have ever thought possible. If you do go, say hello to Abbie for me--she is by far the most adorable winery dog that I have ever met!
Italics. Located just minutes from the Inn, Italics is a great place to kick up your feet, drink some world-class wine, soak in breathtaking views, and stay a little longer than you had expected. The people who run this place are truly fantastic, and the wines are both classic and innovative.
