  • Such a disappointment!

    Dined on 10/18/2014
    At first our party of nine was seated at a small round table. We were elbow to elbow and after some resistance we were finally put out a larger table. Our service was very slow and not very attentive. We waited an hour and a half for our entrées. Our drinks were often empty. Our waiter was sometimes nowhere in sight in a house manager did come around and she was very attentive. However, I felt like she was two steps behind in correcting his mistakes which significantly affected our dining experience. Overall, our dining experience was poor. Some of the food was delicious but other items was clearly subpar. It was not worth the price.

    Angele exceeded our expectations. The feel was warm and chic at the same time. The french onion soup was the best I have tasted. The only disappointment was the autumnal salad. It was decomposed to the point where the flavors did not mix. This will be our go to place in Napa.

    Reservation was easy to get on Sunday night. Our waiter was present and alert to our needs. He provided an update to the SF Giants vs SL Cardinal game. Our meal was excellent however, the bass was a bit on the tiny side. Our pork chop was cooked to medium, very juicy and lots of flavor. THe onion soup was empecable. The dessert was delicious, too. Worthy of returning. One family's kids were screeming and running around the dining area (Put a leash on this).

    My friend and I had a very nice lunch here. They have a beautiful outdoor area and it's on the river. If you are going to eat in downtown Napa, this is a good choice. We had an appetizer of home made ricotta and butternut squash jam which was very good. I enjoyed my salad and the specialty cocktail. Afterwards we had a snack at the chocolate store a few doors down and did a little shopping. The service was very good. I will definitely return again.

    This country-French restaurant was perfect from start to finish. The French onion soup and oysters with "mignonette" were wonderful appetizers. Our table of four all selected "Salmon Roti" served with fresh corn polenta, turnips, carrots and a whimsical "corn dog", a mini corn on the cob battered and fried. Our server's recommendations for wines were spot-on. Definitely will return.

    At the suggestion of the concierge at our hotel I booked Angele's restaurant. What a great dinner and ambience. Our waitress made excellent suggestions off the wine list and was most attentive throughout dinner. The place was quite busy for Thursday night and the main dining room was full and I thought very noisy. I was delighted when we were directed to a table for 2 in the small dining area which only had 3 tables. We were at the window and enjoyed watching the kayakers make their way down the Napa River until it grew dark. I had the potato leek soup and the wild salmon dish while my wife had the baby lettuce salad and the sea scallops. Both were delicious! If you are ever in/near Napa, definitely try Angele's. You'll be happy you did!

    As a local this restaurant sometime slips off my radar, but not anymore! 4 of us had dinner there Saturday night. The Service was excellent, & professional. The menu was so interesting & the Side dishes were as exciting as the center of the plate entree. The mustard crusted pork chop with braised beets & cabbage was a perfect marriage of flavors. The plate presentations were so beautiful we all felt compelled to take a picture prior to eating them. The duck liver mousse w/grilled bread is an appetizer I can't wait to order again. Then Fench spritz cocktail with tangerine juice was the perfect start to the evening & The banana tart was the perfect way to end the meal! Angele is now at the top of the list of my dining radar!

    After many visits to Napa we finally made it to Angele. Great location right on the River. The staff was very attentive without going overboard. Food was great and lots of choices. We were worried that there wouldn't be enough variety for our group but that definitely wasn't the case. It was pretty noisy but we could still have a conversation but a loud one.

    In the last couple years Angele has done a spectacular job updating their menu seasonally and every time we visit we are greeted with fantastic new items. Always the highest quality ingredients paired with the light, but not shy, hand of their chef makes every bite a joy. Don't even hesitate to make a reservation here!

    We hadn't been to Angele in years so we thought we would give it a try! We won't be waiting years to return! Although the patio is fabulous, we ate inside for the first time and the room is so lovely! Very charming! Our dinner was delicious! My husband and I shared some oysters, followed by a melon salad. I was still talking about the fresh flavors the next morning! I had a seared tuna appetizer for my main course, the tuna was slightly overcooked but still enjoyable. My husband had the steak, which was cooked perfectly. We would gladly recommend Angele. Wonderful setting, friendly service and a delicious meal! Perfect!

So sweet and we loved our table by the window in the small intimate back room. The meal was wonderful from the ahi appetizer to the Duck con fit and the scallops. Left feeling satisfied and happy.

    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!
