    Our anniversary was the night after the recent Napa earthquake and Angele had just opened for business after their cleanup. The restaurant was packed with lots of happy people. Our server, Hillary made our evening so special. Her appetizer and wine suggestions were perfect, as was her upbeat attitude. We started with the decadent duck pate with fig jam followed with entrees of seared scallops over forbidden rice and the best chicken I've ever had! No room for dessert after such a lovely meal. We usually sit on the terrace but decided for the cozy but vibrant dining room inside. Angele is a special place and a favorite of locals like ourselves.

    My husband and I were looking forward to our dinner at Angele. It did not disappoint. The table was perfect, the heaters were on and everything from drinks to apps to dinners and dessert was excellent. I tried the Diane Lane and it was heavenly. Husband's was a martini. He had oysters and I had heirloom tomatoes....both were excellent. Duck for me (something I was looking forward to)...excellent. He had pork chop also great. The wine was from one of our favorite Vinyards--Celani Family--and it was very reasonably priced. Dessert was pot au crime with a glazed lavender donut. It turned out unexpectantly to be our last night in Napa because we were awakened with the earthquake! Wowza. Still, a nice memory.

    We have always enjoyed Angele, but we cringe when we get the waiter who fancies himself an entertainer. He interjects himself into conversations at the table, is way too personal and just needs to tone it down in a big way. Perhaps the restaurant would be kind enough to seat us in a different section upon our next visit. Otherwise, go & enjoy!

    It was so lovely. The waiter, host, and manager all made everyone feel welcome. It was my five year anniversary so we paid for the five course tasting menu. We ended up getting six dishes, all of which were exquisite. Definitely a fancy restaurant, but totally worth it.

    Angele is a place that changes chefs every two years (or so it appears). The current Top Hat is a Chef Rogelio Garcia, whose food is rather solid in a spirited and interesting take on otherwise a very classic French inspired menu.

    On a beautiful sunny day my wife and I sat outside under the umbrella and enjoyed a wonderful lunch of grilled steak, macaroni and cheese, tender heirloom tomatoes and a fruity sorbet. The warm bread and butter are always an attraction. This place is perfect and the staff tries hard to make it a good time. The fryer was broken so no French fries but that was not a big deal with so many other choices. Make a reservation because it is a popular spot.

    Excellent steak Tartare (available in 4 oz and 8 oz portions.) The beef is chopped rather than run through a grinder and served with a nice frisee salad and crostini. Ratatouile, heirloom tomato salad, stuffed baby potatoes and Croque Madame were all very good. The house red is a 2011 Rhone and worked well with all our dishes. Desserts ranged from meh to outstanding. The chocolate bread pudding got the meh! The (house made?) chocolate ice cream was one of the best we'd ever tasted. A stone-fruit tart was very good but I'd like to have tasted more of the fruit. We had pleasant outdoor seating, surrounded by flowery gardens. We did not go inside so can't talk about that.

    We were introducing friends to Angele's even though we had only been there once before but were very impressed. We were given out door seating which was great except that the wind was blowing so it was a little chilly. The food was excellent and our waiter was fantastic as was all the staff. They have a wonderful wine and cocktail list to choose from. Make your reservation early it fills up fast. We would definitely return.

    This is one of the finest restaurants in Napa. When we arrived, I was greeted with birthday wishes from our hostess and server. A very gracious gesture. The service was impeccable, friendly, knowledgeable and warm. The food was outstanding. I had the sole with a creamy risotto and my boyfriend had the lasagna which he thoroughly enjoyed. Everything about this restaurant is top notch.

    Second time this month. Last time I had the Faux Filet which was delicious. This time the Canard Rôti which was moist, tender and flavorful. I will get it again. My wife again had the Tartare de Boeuf which she just loves. We saw several other dishes, including the Coquilles Saint-Jacques went want to try so we will definitely be back. Food is delicious, beautifully presented by personable friendly staff. Reasonable prices, good wine list.

    I chose this restaurant based on some research and it was confirmed by the concierge at our table. It was a very cool little restaurant at the end of town on the river. It is an old boathouse, so the wooden beams and quaint feel are a very nice touch. Food was excellent, well prepared, described, and presented. Great seating options both inside and outside. Would definitely go back.

    My wife and I had heard really good things about Angele's and wanted to try it. I got the salmon with a side of potatoes. My wife got a salad with goat cheese (I think) with a side of soup. The best part of mine was the potatoes, the rest was alright. Nothing to write home about. My wife didn't care for the soup and the salad was fairly plain as well. I also can't remember the last time I was charged $8 for sparkling water. I'll make my own at home next time. We didn't have a bad experience here, just hoping for a little more for the amount of money we paid. Kind of plain.

    A group of friends spent 5 nights in Napa, dining at a few of the well known restaurants. Angele was, hands down, the best food and service of the entire trip. This was the 3rd time that I have been to this restaurant and it never fails to provide an outstanding meal. With all the Napa Valley choices, I will put this restaurant at the top of my "must visit" list every time. Compliments to the chef and his well trained staff!

We three had fish and chips (cooked to perfection), mussels (lovely sauce), frites (heavenly) and lip-smacking pate. The cocktails, wine and service was world class. This restaurant deserves its' all star rating. We can't wait to return for dinner.

    This is becoming our favorite place. Eating on the patio is wonderful. The cocktail menu is inventive and fun. The food is what one hopes for in a French restaurant with the easy going ambiance of Napa. The combination of food quality, decor, and service makes this a wonderful place to entertain out of town guests or romantic couples. We have also taken children here, and if they are well behaved, the place is also appropriate

    $105 for a 5-course chef tasting plus wine pairing is extremely hard to come by, especially in wine country. The 5-course tasting menu was in actuality a 6-course tasting menu and it was FANTASTIC! Our entire table left extremely happy and with our bellies very full. The stars of the night were definitely the cauliflower soup and the bacon-wrapped quail. Do not pass up on the tasting menu - you're in for a real treat!

    We had made reservations on open table requesting a nice table outside. This was done 3 days ahead of time. We got a table in a corner by the bar/kitchen seemingly. Pretty sure they gave my table away to a regular or promised it to someone else. After much fuss we managed to get them to hold a table for us outside when people left. We got moved outside after about 30 minutes. We had to look for the waiter most of the time and flag him down. The food was about 50% satisfactory. Half the dishes were good the other half nothing special.

    We have eaten here many times and it was always very good. This was a very poor experience. Three guests of our party of six ordered bass which came dry and tasteless. I had duck which was overcooked and tasteless. Even the steak was poorly done. None of the items came off the check although they were brought to the waiters attention. Even the one dessert we had was not compt. A poor experience overall and very disappointing from one of our previously favorite places in the Napa Valley.
