SMALL BITE: A private vineyard, wine cellar and tasting room, an award-winning restaurant, an underground spa, cozy rooms with vineyard views and an offbeat bar and lounge with a built-in bowling alley … The Meritage Resort and Spa in Napa, California, really does have it all.
SIGNATURE DISH: Crush Ultra Lounge is lauded for its burgers, but the fish tacos are a MUST-TRY! Siena Restaurant is known for its delicious steaks and pastas, with both Italian and California influences.
THE DISH FROM DINERS: Siena Restaurant: “Spent New Year’s Eve at the Meritage spa and resort and dined at Siena ( party of 16). Everyone without exception loved their dinner. I had the filet and lobster PERFECT! And I’m a picky eater. Special shout out to Our server Jack for going out if his way to make our evening special. A big thank you to the entire Meritage/Siena team for getting our 2015 off to a great start!”
Crush Ultra Lounge: “Hey! Y’all need to offer the AH-MAZING fish tacos you served on NYE. I work two minutes from here and I will eat there every day if you add the fish tacos to the menu. Seriously. Best lounge food I’ve ever had in my life. I will bring my entire staff here for lunch. I dream about those fish tacos. Please, I need these in my life!!
FOOD FOR THOUGHT: At Crush Ultra Lounge, strike up some fun at the two-lane bowling alley a few steps down from the bar. Pool tables and shuffleboards are up for grabs, too. Considered one of the most unique places to eat and drink in Napa.
Siena Restaurant has received multiple industry awards, including Wine Spectator’s Award of Excellence, Napa Valley Vintners’ Napa Valley Restaurant Award and OpenTable’s Diners’ Choice Winner.
