Also, we don't know your budget.

Some of the better restaurants in Napa are:

The French Laundry
Ad Hoc
Martini House*
La Toque
Bistro Jeanty
Cindy's Backstreet Kitchen*

Those are all different prices and levels of formality, though. And the only ones I've personally been to are the ones I asterisked.

In terms of "fun places"... Honestly, I like the Jelly Belly factory on the way up north to Napa from Berkeley.

All of the food choices you were given are great. Try Ad Hoc on a Monday night for Fried Chicken (make a reservation now). I would also second Terra, Bistro Jeanty and Cindy's.

The French Laundry would be phenomenal but ..... ridiculously priced
