Expect Consistent Excellence
Part of what makes Cole’s Chop House one of the top dining choices in Napa County is consistency. If you had an amazing experience on your last visit two years ago, you can expect the same on your next visit. This is because the philosophy behind the restaurant hasn’t changed since it opened in 2000 and the team behind it hasn’t changed much either. Current Owners, Eric and Heather Keffer have been involved for 14 years, Chef de Cuisine, Jesus Mendez has been with the restaurant since opening, and most of the team has been with them for several years.
Let’s Talk About Wine – And Whiskey
Wine Director, Greg Vieau has created an extensive wine list, with over 600 wines to choose from, including several rare cult wines, with over 60 wines available by the glass. This is a great way to experience wines you would never otherwise get the opportunity to taste.
Cole’s Chop House also has a unique whiskey program, featuring custom blended barrels by Woodford Distillery, one of the oldest names in whiskey making. In fact, Eric (Owner) and Kyle (Bar Manager) recently took a trip to Kentucky to taste through several lots of single barrel bourbons from Buffalo Trace and Woodford Reserve. After careful evaluation, they selected two final barrels, which will be featured at Cole’s Chop House on their “Riding the Rail” bourbon flights. Over 180 whiskies are available, along with a full bar that features classic American cocktails. At the bar they offer $6 Grey Goose cocktails Sunday through Thursday, excluding holidays.
