Our students are currently on spring break. Gatehouse Restaurant will reopen on May 17.


Gatehouse Restaurant, located at The Culinary Institute of America’s historic St. Helena facility, is the capstone experience for CIA students after two years of rigorous culinary, baking and pastry, hospitality and beverage management instruction. These future industry leaders transform the freshest regional ingredients as well as those from the CIA’s own farm and herb gardens into creative contemporary dishes served graciously in a refined yet casual dining room. Your dining experience is orchestrated by CIA faculty-led students, making for a memorable event. Join us for a prix-fixe dinner, Tuesday through Saturday.
