    The vibe is more business-casual, which I appreciated. It's not stuffy nor pretentious, but their food could easily be pitted against "those" types of restaurants. We started out with a cocktail - I recommend the Diane Lane if you like fruity drinks. It's vodka and Bunderberg blood orange soda with a sprig of rosemary and a slice of lime. Very refreshing! The cocktails were served in canning jars which, again, hearkened to the more casual feel of the restuarant. We ordered appetizers - I had the ricotta maison - housemade ricotta which was very smooth and creamy, with more of a mascarpone texture. It was served with butternut squash balsamic marmalade and toasted country bread. I love butternut squash, and that marmalade was delicious! Not too sweet, so it didn't overpower the mellowness of the ricotta. I alternated spreading layers onto the toast and enjoyed every last bit of it! My husband had the pate maison - pork and root vegetable pate with duck bacon, pickled vegetables, and toasted country bread. He cleaned his plate! He's a chef, and he described the pate as "heaven," so there ya go... For our entrees, I had the canard roti - sonoma duck breast, guanciale roulade, jasmine rice with duck confit, cirspy spinach, and persimmons. Everything was spectacular! The duck was perfectly moist and juicy with a bit of a smoky flavor. The crispy skin gave it a bit of an additional bacon flavor which was fantastic! My husband had the longe de porc - suckling pig loin, crispy pork belly, brussels sprouts, yams, yukon gold potatoes, and chestnut cream. Once again, he cleaned his plate! I did get to try a piece of the pork belly, which was very good - juicy and tender, reminiscent of a very, very good piece of carnitas! We shared the fruit tart for dessert, which was flaky, crispy, and delicious! I recommend it highly. Our server was fantastic - everytime he passed our table he would check in on us; he was very knowledgable and helpful. Two thumbs way up!

    On time for our reservation, table ready. The wine list is wide, but way overpriced. Ordered a Pinot Noir for $70 that at $15 would be about right. Service was attentive. Appetizer was the hihg of the night with properly cooked and tasty scallop. From there on same as an Applebee's.

    We are locals and hadn't been to Angele for a while. The prices have increased quite a bit from when we were there last, but more importantly the food was average and the service was poor. Our friend had the New York Steak. He was so looking forward to it, but received a very small piece of meat. What was on the plate was more bone marrow and beef belly. Really?? My husband had scallops which were mediocre and the rice was very bland. All in all, very disappointing. We don't mind paying if the food is worth it. This was not. The service was sporadic and we had to finally get up and ask the hostess for our check and even then we had to wait again to have the payment picked up. We won't be coming again. There are so many other restaurants in town with better food and service.

    You MUST have the sauteed clams. MUST. Every bite of the quail was like its own little universe of wonderfulness. The salmon special of the evening was spectacular. I'm running out of superlatives - but why talk about it when you can just EAT it. Go, enjoy. Celebrate FINE food.

    This is the second time we ate here. My dish of Branzino was very tasty but portion was a little small. The surrounding vegetables were in a sauce of some kind that was delicious. The vegetables were perfectly cooked but they were on the cool side. My husband ordered a pork dish which he thought was a little tough but it too was very tasty. Unlike many of the local restaurants the bottles of wine are very reasonably priced. I will definitely come back to this restaurant because the food was so tasty I have to consider that maybe it was an off night for the kitchen or the server.

    Angele has a great menu of a variety of foods and drinks that are tasty and exquisitely presented. Though upscale, the service was down to earth. We had a wonderful meal of foods and tastes we would never think would "fit" together, but they really do! Drink concoctions with a tang, delectable salads and soups, and main courses that exceeded all expectations with service and wine pairing suggestions made this a wonderful dining experience. Leave room for dessert!!

    Made reservation with great expectations as Angele was on Top 100 restaurant list in San Francisco Chronical. Brought clients to entertain. The bar was very nice and bar servers were attentive however they charged us for more drinks than ordered. This was corrected immediately when brought to their attention. The restaurant is lovely. We had been out tasting during the day and this was later reservation so we were looking forward to our meal. We ordered a soup appetizer - cream of potato and leek. It was good but very thin without the usual richness. Our main courses came thereafter and we were all a bit surprised to see how little food was on our plates. 2 of us ordered the pork chop. This was the smallest, thinnest cut of pork chop I have ever seen. 3 bites, maybe 4. The steak was also ordered and it too was a slice of beef perhaps 3" square and 1/2 - 3/4 " thick. I was terribly embarrassed as it was very apparent my clients were making an effort to enjoy the "meal". If the food preparation had been extraordinary I could understand but it was not at all. I would not recommend this restaurant.

    This was our 2nd visit to Angele's. We went to celebrate my daughter's birthday. We were very disappointed. Our meals were bland. The amt of food provided was "definitely" not worth the price. In a steak dish, there were only two small slices of steak on the plate. Second, the service was horrible. After our waiter took our order, he never returned to our table to see how we were doing during the evening! He didn't remember to bring extra bread. Known as a French restaurant, they played other ethic songs which was amusing. When we asked for the bill, our waiter did not mention about celebrating my daughter's birthday (since I indicated the message on Opentable). Lastly, they allowed owners to bring their dogs in the patio.

    As a local Napa resident and food enthusiast I have been trying to hit all my restaurants on the bucket list. I wanted something close to home and Angele had a reservation. I brought a nice bottle of Pinot Noir and had an amazing meal. Shared two apps which we both very good. The entrees will also shared, sea bass & bacon wrapped stuffed quail. The quail was the hit of the night as I couldn't stop eating my half. The flavors were just perfect. Who doesn't like bacon on anything....we had to have dessert which was nice. I prefer a chocolate dessert, we tried the almond tart. Overall, food was top notch and my server was very attentive. He knew when to approach the table. Highly recommended Angele for your next dining experience.

    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.

    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).

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.
