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.



Our team is comprised of Chef Katianna Hong, General Manager Carina Barrera, Bar Manager Jason Duck, Events Director Elizabeth Harris, and Garden Manager Zac Yoder. In addition to these familiar faces, our growing culinary and service team work tirelessly each day to bring our guests a celebratory dining experience.
