My son Mike was home one night recently, and I solicited his help pulling some bottles from my wine cellar. He noticed that one of the bottles he’d selected was signed, and asked me who had signed it. I looked at the bottle and thought about that wonderful day — almost 30 years ago — when I spent an afternoon with Lady Bird Johnson, the wife of former President Lyndon Johnson.

We had been asked by the public relations arm of The Wine Institute to host a lunch for a group of Californians visiting the Napa Valley for the American Wildflower Foundation. I worked at Joseph Phelps Vineyards at the time, and it wasn’t uncommon for us to allow groups to visit the winery for a private event, and then afterwards sell them wine. We arranged for a caterer to prepare the meal, and then dealt with the organizers to work out the details.

One wrinkle did serve as a possible issue: There would be a pre-lunch presentation by a University of California professor named Walter Alvarez. His topic: the theory of the extinction of the dinosaurs. I wondered how I might possibly tie that into a wine sale, especially to a group of wildflower enthusiasts. The morning of the event I received another surprise when the group advised me that Lady Bird Johnson would be joining them. Lady Bird, it turned out, was a founder of the Texas Wildflower Center, and much of her work over the years had involved promoting the appreciation of wildflowers. She and her longtime friend and former press secretary Liz Carpenter would be part of the group.

The day began with a tremor of concern, then, but it was going to end without one.

The group, about 25 in all, arrived promptly at 10 a.m. Lady Bird, as expected, had a private escort, but I never had an inkling that she was anything other than a wildflower enthusiast. She was casually dressed but still strikingly attractive, and she held my arm as we walked on some stepping stones to the back of the winery. It was a beautiful early spring day, and it crossed my mind that with the mustard plants and lupine showing at their finest, we were in something like wildflower nirvana.

The group numbered about 25, and soon they were all seated on the wooden benches that surrounded the west-facing deck. I began to make my introductory remarks. A sentence or two into my welcome, Lady Bird interrupted me. "Mr. Neyers," she said in her slow but enthusiastic drawl, "this view is absolutely delicious!" She spoke those two words as if each had eight or nine syllables, and I’m sure a blush of pride covered my face. I thanked her, but I remember saying something about not having had a lot to do with the view — it was the wine for which I was responsible.

With that comment, one of my colleagues began to give everyone a glass of chilled chardonnay to enjoy before lunch. I started to introduce the wine when Lady Bird interrupted me again. Neyers," she asked, "do you have zinfandel?" I paused for a moment thinking of my reply, then decided to take the path of least resistance: "Why, yes, ma’am, we do," I said. "I’ll have a bottle brought here at once." "Oh, thank you, Mr. Neyers," she said. "I just love zinfandel."

A tray of red wine glasses appeared, and Lady Bird, along with one or two of the others, took a glass of the zinfandel. I talked for a few more minutes, and we went inside to the large oval table that had been set for the group. I hadn’t planned on joining them for lunch or the talk by Dr. Alvarez until Lady Bird took me by the arm again and maneuvered me to a seat on the side of the table next to her. She then motioned to Liz Carpenter to take the seat on the other side of me, while she directed Walter Alvarez to the seat at the head of the table. "He will want to stand up when he talks," Lady Bird advised me, "and this is the best place to watch him."

As soon as everyone was seated, Alvarez stood up, introduced himself, and held up two rocks, each about the size of a baseball. The rocks, he said, were part of the proof behind his Alvarez Hypothesis. He then went on to talk for the next hour about the Cretaceous Period, the extinction of the dinosaurs (which he believed was caused by a giant asteroid striking the Earth), and how a group of scientists he headed along with his Nobel Prize-winning father had determined this through several years of geological studies that measured variations in the level of iridium in the planet’s crust. We had a chance to examine the rock samples in detail as Alvarez explained how the one rich in iridium differed from the other. When he was finished, I felt like the smartest man in the world.

Alvarez took his seat amidst exuberant applause, and lunch began. Our server poured Lady Bird some cabernet sauvignon, and this time I didn’t wait for her to comment. "Would you prefer zinfandel, ma’am?" I asked. "Why, yes, Bruce," she replied, "I would. Like I said, I just love zinfandel."

When one of my colleagues began serving zinfandel for the lunch, she handed a bottle to me, along with a pen, and said, "Maybe you could get Lady Bird to sign this bottle for you." I would have never thought of that, but I offered it to her and she said, "I’ll just sign it to Bruce, OK?" And so I ended up on a first-name basis with a former first lady, and with a signed bottle of wine for my son to discover 30 years later.

It's nice to have a fun place that's close to 620/2222. This restaurant has a nice atmosphere for adults but also a playscape for the kids. They have a sweet outdoor patio area as well as a gelato "bar". The kids love picking their flavor. Wine selection is good and the happy hour prices can't be beat. The menu offers a nice variety from wood fired pizza, to pastas to steaks. Everything is fairly priced and tasty, and the service is always awesonme. We dine here at least once a month.

Thank you so much for your kind words! We love the balance of the interior with the outside patio/playscape area. We are working on some great summer wine and beer specials as we speak! Thanks again for your business. See you in soon!

Had a lovely meal here early evening on Easter Sunday. The wait staff were very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. I had a moscow mule which had fresh ginger in it. And Dave had Beer. I ordered the salmon salad, it was perfect, not too much, and some to take-a-way. Plenty of choice of dressings. The lettuce was "real" not like restaurants who serve you the white stem bits! this was leafy and fresh. Dave ordered the shrimp and a pizza both were great.

Hi Teresa! It is so great to hear you enjoyed yourself on Easter! We have spent a lot of time working on our bar menu and perfecting our recipes, and I am glad that did not go unnoticed by you! The Moscow Mule is one of my favorites!

Thank you again for your feedback and comments. We appreciate you and your business. See you in soon!

I'm torn about this place because I want to like this place, but it's hard too. When my wife walked into and asked to look at the kids menu, it resembles Italian, but the hostess told her that it's Mediterranean. Let's start with the waiter. great service and attentive. We sat outside and loved that they had an outdoor playground for kids to enjoy. We ordered the hummus appetizer and really enjoyed it. The rest of the food was a bit disappointing. The kids ordered the cheese ravioli and it was ok, not much taste to it. My wife and I split the fish tacos, which were horrible. The fish had no flavor but burnt smoke taste. I had a few bites and just left it. I truly enjoyed the ambience, but that can only get you so far. I truly think there is an identity crisis with this restaurant. The menu is all over the place and I think they need to pick one region of food. It appeared to be Italian, Mediterranean, Mexican, and American. We will be back, but only for drinks and appetizers.

Thanks for your feedback! We like to say we are Californian with Italian Flair! We focus on fresh, locally sourced foods that can please anyone! Lots of fresh veggies, pastas, pizzas, and of course our famous gelato! I will pass your comments along on the fish tacos. Many people love the all wood-burning grill! Thanks again for your comments. We appreciate your business!

We are in the Austin area for spring break with our two kids. We've had nothing, but amazing food and service the whole time leading up to our dinner at Napa Flats. We're staying within ten minutes of this restaurant so it was convenient on a day where we found ourselves worn out. The playground and reviews for kid friendly dining brought us here. To their credit the kids loved it. We came in shortly after 5 and there were only a handful of people there. As we were about to be seated the hostess needed to answer the phone. She provided information, took a reservation and talked about the menu. It took several minutes. No big deal. We sat down outside and the kids took off to the playground. We loved that part. It took just shy of 15 minutes before anyone came by to take drink orders. Totally unacceptable. After placing drink orders it took again just shy of 20 minutes to get the drinks (17). Why was I timing? Because my kids kept running back to the table to ask for water. You get the point. The entire meal was like this. The server appeared to be training someone and while we tried to be understanding it got old quick. When I would ask again to get water or silverware the server was clearly irritated with me. He said a few times "I was trying to bring out everything at once". I have no idea what he was talking about since I watched the tables around us get service 2 times while we waited. Everyone has an off day, but I felt like he was intentionally looking over us because of the kids. Kid free tables appeared to get immediate service. Overall this was so disappointing since they have a great concept and there are so many options in the area. The avocado appetizer was delicious and the bbq pizza was a big hit at our table. Sorry for the bummer review!

Hi Nicole! Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience. I am sorry that it seemed like you were given poor service because of the children. I assure you that we are pround to be kid-friendly! We love the fact that a majority of the reviews mention the playground! We appreciate your business and your feedback.

Thank you so much for your kind words! We love the balance of the interior with the outside patio/playscape area. We are working on some great summer wine and beer specials as we speak! Thanks again for your business. See you in soon!

Had a lovely meal here early evening on Easter Sunday. The wait staff were very friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. I had a moscow mule which had fresh ginger in it. And Dave had Beer. I ordered the salmon salad, it was perfect, not too much, and some to take-a-way. Plenty of choice of dressings. The lettuce was "real" not like restaurants who serve you the white stem bits! this was leafy and fresh. Dave ordered the shrimp and a pizza both were great.

Hi Teresa! It is so great to hear you enjoyed yourself on Easter! We have spent a lot of time working on our bar menu and perfecting our recipes, and I am glad that did not go unnoticed by you! The Moscow Mule is one of my favorites!

Thank you again for your feedback and comments. We appreciate you and your business. See you in soon!

Great service from waiter Aaron. Everyone loved food, veggie option great, steak wonderful and great lamb chops. Kids loved their food too and the Brownie was to die for. Thank you!

Thank you so much for your kind words regarding your visit to Napa Flats! We are so happy to hear how much you enjoyed the food and the service. I will pass along your comments to Aaron as well! Thank you for your business! See you in soon!

I'm torn about this place because I want to like this place, but it's hard too. When my wife walked into and asked to look at the kids menu, it resembles Italian, but the hostess told her that it's Mediterranean. Let's start with the waiter. great service and attentive. We sat outside and loved that they had an outdoor playground for kids to enjoy. We ordered the hummus appetizer and really enjoyed it. The rest of the food was a bit disappointing. The kids ordered the cheese ravioli and it was ok, not much taste to it. My wife and I split the fish tacos, which were horrible. The fish had no flavor but burnt smoke taste. I had a few bites and just left it. I truly enjoyed the ambience, but that can only get you so far. I truly think there is an identity crisis with this restaurant. The menu is all over the place and I think they need to pick one region of food. It appeared to be Italian, Mediterranean, Mexican, and American. We will be back, but only for drinks and appetizers.

Thanks for your feedback! We like to say we are Californian with Italian Flair! We focus on fresh, locally sourced foods that can please anyone! Lots of fresh veggies, pastas, pizzas, and of course our famous gelato! I will pass your comments along on the fish tacos. Many people love the all wood-burning grill! Thanks again for your comments. We appreciate your business!

We are in the Austin area for spring break with our two kids. We've had nothing, but amazing food and service the whole time leading up to our dinner at Napa Flats. We're staying within ten minutes of this restaurant so it was convenient on a day where we found ourselves worn out. The playground and reviews for kid friendly dining brought us here. To their credit the kids loved it. We came in shortly after 5 and there were only a handful of people there. As we were about to be seated the hostess needed to answer the phone. She provided information, took a reservation and talked about the menu. It took several minutes. No big deal. We sat down outside and the kids took off to the playground. We loved that part. It took just shy of 15 minutes before anyone came by to take drink orders. Totally unacceptable. After placing drink orders it took again just shy of 20 minutes to get the drinks (17). Why was I timing? Because my kids kept running back to the table to ask for water. You get the point. The entire meal was like this. The server appeared to be training someone and while we tried to be understanding it got old quick. When I would ask again to get water or silverware the server was clearly irritated with me. He said a few times "I was trying to bring out everything at once". I have no idea what he was talking about since I watched the tables around us get service 2 times while we waited. Everyone has an off day, but I felt like he was intentionally looking over us because of the kids. Kid free tables appeared to get immediate service. Overall this was so disappointing since they have a great concept and there are so many options in the area. The avocado appetizer was delicious and the bbq pizza was a big hit at our table. Sorry for the bummer review!

Hi Nicole! Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your experience. I am sorry that it seemed like you were given poor service because of the children. I assure you that we are pround to be kid-friendly! We love the fact that a majority of the reviews mention the playground! We appreciate your business and your feedback.

It's nice to have a fun place that's close to 620/2222. This restaurant has a nice atmosphere for adults but also a playscape for the kids.
