Description: This casual, white-tablecloth establishment is where great food, wine and service come together! The "Wine Country" theme allows for diversity, so menus are seasonally revised three times a year. Fall brings risottos with wild mushrooms and squashes. Chilly winter has deep rich braises with root vegetables and hearty potato soups. Summer lightens up with vine ripened heirloom tomatoes, sweet corn, and summer stone fruit. Each of our dishes is paired with the perfect wine, and we never charge corkage fee! Try our daily specials, Vintner's lunch, late night bar menu and delicious desserts. We welcome all residents and visitors of the Napa region to come experience fine dining in our cozy dining room, lively bar or expansive patio. From an intimate dinner to a large celebration, every meal at Hurley's Restaurant is a special food and wine event.

“Hurley's”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

This was our first visit to Hurley's, and we had high expectations. We sat on the patio in the early evening, and the atmosphere and ambiance was excellent. We had four in our party. Our server was just average, stand offish and somewhat pretentious, but that happens, and we do not judge a dining experience on the server interaction alone. We had cocktails, appetizers, and entrees. The food was great for the most part, but our big concern was with one entree in particular. One of our foursome ordered a salmon dish. It was completely undercooked and almost slimy/runny. A Manager happened by, asked us how our experience was. We said it was excellent overall but wanted to ask a question about the salmon dish. We made it clear too the Manager is was NOT a complaint, just a question. He looked, indicated that is how they serve it, and it should be fine. he then indicted that this was not the salmon that was on the menu, but something else they were serving. We continued with our meal, and noticed the Manager talking to our server, who immediately came over to confirm too us that the salmon on our plate was not even the same type of salmon that was on the menu. (the person ordering the salmon is from British Columbia, and definitely knows their salmon). We were taken aback. We knew right away the dish was not right. To have them confirm too us the fish was wrong, and the fact it was prepared completely wrong really surprised us from a restaurant like Hurley's. We have no doubt these are over sights, but the fact it happened in the first place, combined with the Manager's off-hand admission with out any apology or acknowledgement was a little baffling. We loved many things about Hurley's, but this was just a very strange experience, and we will not be back. With all of the options in the Yountville area, we will look elsewhere on our next trip. Oh, did I mention we watched birds fly down and pick at the bread supply by the door to the restaurant, watched our young server shoo the birds away, listened while he made several "comments" about the local bird population, then watched when that bread was served to another table? Like I said, a little baffling overall......

“Wonderful Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

We went to Hurley's for lunch before visiting some of the Veteran's at the Yountville Veteran's Home. It was a beautiful day so we sat outside. I ordered the Potato-Leek Soup and Apricot Salad. The soup was wonderful, and I could tell that it was definately not from a can. And the Salad was perfect. Arugula was fresh, apricots were fresh, and it was the perfect amount of a lemon vinigarette dressing. My husband had the Ahi Tuna that was served with a risotto. Both were excellent and I could have had a plate full of the risotto. We will definately go back.

“Great Local Casual place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

We went to Hurleys our first night we stayed in Yountville at the suggestion of our hotel concierge. It was a great local casual restaurant. We felt the food was wonderfully prepared and just as good as many of the other vaunted Yountville restaurants. Casual without the pretense. Would definitely go back.

“Pleasant Yountville Restaurant with Enthusiastic Staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 June 2014

We visited Hurley's last weekend after a hiatus. We were going to eat at Alex Restaurant in Rutherford, but they cancelled our dinner reservation 3 hours before we were to show. Nice. The folks at Hurley's very eager to help and booked us in. What a great choice and probably is the place we should have gone to in the first place.

The thing that sets Hurley's apart is the quality of service and the eagerness of the staff to please. We sat inside as the patio was booked, but being warm out it provided for a sweat free dining experience. The menu selection was varied with our party's choices ranging from boar, to sea bass, to venison to another nice fish selection. Everything was quite delicious. Appetizers, especially the roasted pepper soup, were excellent. For desert we shared a couple of items which were very nice and had the same great presentation as the other courses.

From what we remember of our previous dinner there, which was fine, food and service has improved at Hurley's, making this a great choice for dining. As their establishment has a lot of space, we've noticed on several occassions on Open Table that you can usually get a table. Case in point is our reservation mid-afternoon for a Saturday evening. There were lots of people eating there, but with room for more folks to walk in.

A great choice for dining in Napa Valley with a wonderful staff that tries very hard to please. Cheers!

“Great place for lunch”

We had lunch at Hurley's. The food was very good, and the patio dining was beautiful and pet friendly. The crab cakes and asparagus salad were a perfect lunch.
