The Charter Oak is centered on a celebratory, family-style dining experience, with simple, approachable, and seasonal food – grilled meats, beautiful vegetables from our farm, local wines and unparalleled cocktails. Our menu reflects the products of the Napa Valley through an elemental cooking style, with a hearth at its center, and by highlighting one or two ingredients at a time.



The Charter Oak is the vision of Owner, Chef Christopher Kostow of the three-Michelin starred The Restaurant at Meadowood. Christopher had a simple goal of creating a restaurant for the community and sharing the bounty of the Napa Valley with visitors. In June 2017, The Charter Oak opened its doors.
