Diner Reviews
  • "This place is fantastic and the food is to die for. I had the quail and my wife had the Rib eye; both were amazing and we savored every bite. We also had the Gratin De Macaroni which was exceptional. The wine list had plenty of CA wines to choose from as well as traditional French wines and something for everyone's budget. When we come back to Napa, we plan to come back here."

  • "The nice thing about brunch at Angele's is that there is a very nice selection of non-traditional small plates, for those of us who don't really care for pancakes, waffles etc. We had a lovely Sunday lunch there, the highlights of which were the pea soup, fresh oysters, artichoke salad, pizzetta, steak tartare and steak Parmentier. Everything was well-prepared, and ever so fresh and tasty. The service was discrete but efficient. All 4 of us (of different nationalities and culinary backgrounds) were very satisfied."

  • "Angele is always a solid choice. Good food, nice ambience and great location. This visit the food did not "wow" as much as previous visits"

  • "My wife and I live in Napa and we do our best to try out every new restaurant that comes around. We went to Angele about 10 or so years ago and had a good time, but we had not been back since. After having revisited Angele for a romantic dinner this past Friday night, we realized that we have been missing out on this gem. The baked Oysters were great, as was the sashimi and beet salad. My wife had the risotto and loved it, while I much preferred my perfectly prepared rib eye. The service was outstanding! We will be back, and this place will now be on our regular rotation especially when we have guests come into town."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "The food was creative and delicious. We enjoyed the quail and the rock Cornish game hen. The portions were small and did not make for a full meal.The wooden chairs belonged in an ice cream parlor, not a sit down restaurant."

  • "It was a pleasure to receive such high caliber service on a Sunday afternoon when we were just stopping in for a nice late lunch. Dan W. did a fantastic job of making us welcome and comfortable. Food, as always was spot on, and the space / ambiance was comfortable and relaxing."
    Dined on 4/6/2014
  • "The food was amazing. We started with the steak tartar (the small plate, which was more than enough for two). It was rich and decadent. I had the scallops and my guy had the quail with green chorizo for our main plates. Both were outstanding. The scallops were perfectly cooked and buttery. My guy is in no way a foodie (he's a meat and potatoes man), but he loved his quail... and pretty much everything about our dinner. The quail was juicy, the chorizo was wonderfully seasoned and the mushroom lasagna that came with it was fantastic. If only we had room for dessert. We both had local white wines, which were fab. I don't think you can go wrong with anything on this menu. One note about the atmosphere, it was beautiful inside, but very loud."

  • "This is our second-time trying this restaurant and we liked it much better this time. Most of the dishes were excellent but the beef was dry and a bit tough--for this price we expect perfection. It's expensive and our expectations were high--it didn't quite meet-up and there are plenty of other restaurants at this price point. Service was excellent except we did feel a bit rushed and again, at his price should feel we have plenty of time."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Lovely food. Great wine list. Lovely, unique speciality drinks. Our dinner was not enjoyable however because the noise level was impossible. I don't know that I would repeat the experience."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "1. shared heater for two tables, because the other table complained in side of restaurant, they never asked our table. 2 of us were cold, heater was sut off. 2. Pouched tune salad was on menu but it was actually canned and waiter openly admitted it."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "We had a wonderful meal at Angele. The highlight was my green garlic risotto, which was fabulous. Also, our service was outstanding. I should also mention that we brought our kids, and they were nice enough to offer them a couple items that are not on the menu."
    Dined on 4/4/2014
  • "Eating at Angele is always a wonderful experience. The food is amazing, service is fast and attentive, and the atmosphere is perfect. Angle has a lovely indoor space, but also a gorgeous outdoor riverfront eating area for open air eating. There is a full bar and great hang-out vibe too. Excellent!"

  • "liked the ambiance quite a bit, especially for dinner. romantic. were seated promptly at our reservation time by a friendly hostess. had a cocktail to start and was very good...good list. for wine started with a glass of Brown Cab 95 that had gone bad. replaced for us but probably should have comped at that point. service was ok after bad glass of wine. food was brought way to quickly, seemed as though we were being rushed. probably would have been better for business as well, as we may have had another glass at $16. salad and two entries brought within a total of 10 minutes....a bit too fast for a fine dining establishment. food was quite good but portion size was tiny. I would recommend but with caveats as the food was good."

  • "Lunch for 4. Good selection of wines, and excellent bistro menu. The service was excellent. Warmer weather will allow them to open their outside dining, giving you a pleasant view of the Napa River."

  • "Recently for a business lunch during a stressful time I visited Angele Food ambience and service made it a great choice. Lots of choices and nice non alc bev selection as well as small but quality by the glass list Easy parking easy to find I look forward to returning with friends"
    Dined on 3/25/2014
  • "I recently had brunch at Angele with my son and his girlfriend having not eaten there for a couple of years. The ambience was unbeatable on a lovely sunny day and the staff delightful. Brunch was mediocre. Tasteless duck confit, dry and flavorless fried Cornish game hen ( the cook forgot to bread the chicken so if was fried without a coating) and equally dry and rather unpleasant sausage stuffed waffles. The only decent dish was the croque madame. We won't be going back."

  • "Great food, presentation was awesome! Great service. Just in town for 2 days and so glad we had dinner there. We sat outside right by the heater."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "This was our first time here with another couple. Honestly, I picked it because everybody else was booked the night we went. Staff was very friendly, left us alone to enjoy our conversation. Food looked great, tasted okay. I ordered the duck, it was warm but not hot. The squid app looked better than it tasted. I would not order again and I love squid. Dessert was unbelievably good! The banana dish is what we split. If I would have just ordered that and had my wine I would have been fine. Napa has a ridiculous amount of great restaurants and chefs so the pressure is always on to impress patrons. Angele was solid, but there's better for the money we spent if you can get a reservation and plan accordingly."

  • "The entire meal was fantastic. Shaved black truffle everywhere. Marvelous. When I am in Napa I will come back again and again. I literally wanted to order a small plate of every dish on the menu."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Our first time to Angele. Great atmosphere. A little disappointed in the limited wine choices by the glass, but the food made up for that. I had the Beef Cheeks, undoubtedly one of the best beef dishes I've had in some time. Service was great and the restaurant had a wonderful lively atmosphere about it, wold go back in a heart beat. Great location, it was a little chilly to dine out on the Patio, but I can imagine its great when the weather permits. We will go back next time we're in Napa."

  • "had a very nice meal here. Last minute change of time as well as number of people didn't throw them off and they accomodated us and we had an excellent meal."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "This is my first time dining here for Brunch and wasn't disappointed with the menu nor the service. All of the flavors are delicate though the duck confit was quite savory which complemented the rose wine. The flavorful pate and desserts (pudding and banana gratin) supplemented a wonderful dining experience. A big plus, the waiter wasn't overly attentive (seen without been seen) to the table and let us relax and enjoy the day."

  • "Our wine country go to; love the quiet of the river and the relaxed environment; it's like dining at a French cafe; no rush and no worries"
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Perfect evening, nice service, very well designed food, from the safe (mac and cheese) to the daring (sweetbreads). Well-portioned entrees and reasonable by the glass list - there was a 2005 Napa cab, not just their "house" wines. Interesting cocktails to start the meal."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "We had the sturgeon and the truffle risotto along with two creative and tasty appetizers. The food was spectacular and the service was excellent. Angele has become one of the most consistently outstanding restaurants in the Napa Valley, even though the experience remains understated and cozy. This is not the over the top experience that you find at the French Laundry, Meadowwood or La Toque, but it is certainly one of the best and most interesting places to eat in the wine country."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "This restaurant came highly recommended from a number of venues (books, hotel, wineries, websites, etc) and it certainly lived up to the hype. The setting is fantastic, sitting right along the Napa River, with a fantastic outdoor seating area. The menu is creative and has a little something for everyone, however, there is really only one thing you need to know about this place: Bacon wrapped, chorizo-stuffed quail (for pork-product lovers, that's pork product on the outside and more on the inside for good measure)...I don't care what else you think you like on this menu - order this. If only I could find a way for them to ship it to Boston...."

  • "Met for lunch with a co-working on the outdoor patio-great space - had the sweet bread app that was amazing - entree's were perfect for lunch - tried to eat dessert too - butterscotch pudding was extremely tasty - Enjoyed a bottle of Chappellet Signature Cab which is always outstanding. Not much I would change other than the table for two was a bit small but we were warned by the hostess so not complaining just a comment."

  • "I have been to Angele several times and it just keeps getting better. Our server suggested the potato leek soup which we did and it was superb. I also had the fish and chips which was not your usual made from cod These were made fro tilapia which made them very light and tasty. Will go back to Angele many more times."

  • "Angele continues to get better and better. We have eaten here many times, and it shows that they are working to improve food and service. We needed a quiet table, and we were given a lovely table in a small room in the back. All of our dinners were wonderful - Pate de Campagne appetizer, Beet Salad, Gnocchi, Mustard Crusted Pork Chop and Scallops. We also had some good wines from a French Sancerre to a California Pinot. All together a lovely and enjoyable evening, thanks to Angele."

  • "I was very disappointed in the service and food. We ordered an appetizer that was finished then left there for an hour and half before we got our entree. The wait staff approached us and we said we were done. Then she went missing, only to have us flag her down to ask for our food, which then took another 45 minutes to come. When the entree came, it was flavorless and flat. The scallops were overcooked and rubbery. A major disappointment since there's so many wonderful places to eat in Napa. After hearing rave reviews about the restaurant, I just hope it was an off night."

  • "The service was outstanding for our party of 5, three of whom were visiting from China. Menu is creative, with some brunch standards and some twists. One twist I didn't care for was the fact that the day's special "bread" was a huckleberry muffin, each of which cost $3.00. For brunch at a high-end restaurant, should this not be part of the package? To be sure, they were delicious, but it sullied the experience. All other aspects were quite nice, and the lunch was a nice break from a day of viewing art and drinking wine."

  • "I have been coming to this restaurant for years - usually for the burger and/or the French onion soup. This time however we both decided to try something different. My husband had the eggs Benedict and I had the fish and chips. My husband didn't like his dish, but was starving so he ate it - he said he had had better eggs Benedict at Denny's. I loved the fish and chips. The fish was sole instead of the usual cod. The batter was light and perfect for the fish. It wasn't greasy at all. And there were enough fries for 4 people."

  • "My wife and I were in Napa spending the afternoon enjoying wine tasting and eachothers company. We wanted to cap off a great day with a nice sit down restaurant and found Angele per the recommendation of several others in the area. It was a very nice restaurant with a great view of the river and a perfect way to end the evening. We enjoyed a glass of wine an appetizer and a nice meal. My wife had the scallops, which were absolutely great and I had the risotto. Both dishes were very good and would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for great food, a beautiful setting and great atmosphere for client meetings, romantic eats or great atmosphere for a friendly meal."
