    With so many wonderful places to eat in the Napa Valley - Celedon is one of our very favorites! It's a comfortable environment with food you can always expect to be delicious - as locals we recommend it to people all the time. The Calamari is one of the best we've had.

  • A Celadon Fan-Disappointed!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2003
    Dined on 8/19/2014
    Celadon is one of my favorite restaurants, but our dinner there earlier this week was disappointing. I had the sea bass special and it was simply mediocre tasting and not well-presented. Our waitress was initially kind and helpful, but not really attentive to us after that. I had to ask for a second glass of wine and she never checked during our meal to see how we were doing. I'm really hoping this was a rare off night because I love this place.

    My girlfriends and I meet up once a year for a girls get together and we couldn't have picked a better place to fine. From the appetizers to the main dish we have no complaints. The dessert was perfect! We had the creme brûlée and it was just right. You could every ingredient in the dishes and amazingly the parpadelle pasta was robust and not just a "pasta dish". I highly recommend this to any visitors.

    We loved sitting outside and the service was terrific, but some of the dishes were a little disappointing. The watermelon, daikon and pork belly salad was fresher last time we had it. The flat-iron steak was underdone (he asked for medium rare and got very rare) and the potato it was sitting on was hard in the center. My husband thought the arugula with pesto salad that was on top of the meat and potato was too much competition for the meat. We both loved the calamari (we ask them to serve the sweet chili sauce on the side) and my salmon was delicious with mashed potatoes and corn with bacon jus. The best thing was the expresso brulee we had for desert--spectacular. We'll go again, but probably have appetizers, salads and desert.

    For our final night in Napa we stopped in at Celadon and had some of the best food of the week. I had the polenta and mushroom dish, and my husband had the pork chop. We both made happy plates! For dessert we shared the lemon pie and our fabulous waiter rescued us from licking the plate!! You will definitely want to add Celadon to your dining bucket list!

    I chose Celedon based on reviews. I must say the restaurant and the service did not disappoint. I had even booked my reservation through Open Table and requested outdoor seating by the fireplace and that is exactly where I was seated. The food was fantasic. My group of four each had different entrees: Porterhouse Pork Steak, Beef Pasta special, Duck, and the Lamb. All were fabulous. For starters we either had the butter lettuce salad with Champagne Vinergrette or the tomato salads. Both were great. I also tried the pork belly and watermelon appetizer. It too was wonderful. We went on a Wednesday night, the crowd was minimal and we were seated at exactly our reservation time. We will go to Celedon again. It is a great experience

  • Napa River Find
    notoutallthetimeVIP
    Dined on 8/11/2014
    We had walked by Celadon two or three times when we were shopping in Napa, but were looking for a dinner location to take friends staying with us in Napa. We requested and were seated in the covered patio. There is no river view but it is only a step away from the river and we had a very pleasant post dinner stroll along the steadily improving river front. The food was very good, although one should not expect Yountville level of innovation. We all cleared our plates, so it couldn't have been that bad. We had sorbet for dessert (white peach and mixed berries). I could see coming just for the dessert. The outdoor tables are spread well, so it was a very comfortable private dinner. We will definitely come here again.

    We love Celadon, so of course we thought of it when we needed reservations for a dinner with visiting family. Food was fabulous, service knowledgeable and attentive. We were seated outside, but inside the restaurant would be better for a meal and conversation with older folks than outside on the covered patio. All in all, a pleasant evening.

    We were running late Friday night and they were very accommodating. Service was prompt and friendly. Both of our entrees were disappointing. The lamb shank was mediocre (over cooked?). My fish, which was the special Friday - a seabass was overlooked, dry and did not seem at all like the wonderful description I heard. I didn't eat more than a couple bites. The goat cheese small plate was great but it's pretty hard to hurt goat cheese. The clam chowder my husband had was good. I picked Celedon for our pre-Chris Isaac dinner because we had been there before and the current reviews were very good. I was disappointed. I hate spending $150 for dinner to have it turn out poorly.

    Dined on 8/6/2014
    We found the best item we ordered to be your fresh bib lettuce salad. Simple and fresh. The other items we ordered were good but too heavily salted and oiled. Your ingredients are great-don't overpower them with unnecessary oils and salts. Let the food shine on it's own. Beautiful outdoor patio, wish we could've been seated on it but the hostess seated a walk-in couple outside and then told us (we had a reservation) that there were no outside tables. That was poor. Our waiter was great however.

    We are from Wisconsin and just in Napa for two days to do some winery visits. This is a lovely restaurant with good service, excellent menu choices, nice appetizers including goat cheese and calamari. Our daughter had the roasted chicken with gnocchi, husband had the pork porterhouse, and I had the pasta special which had a wonderful shredded slow roasted pork and spinach, mushrooms and a lovely truffle sauce blended through the linguini. All of our meals were excellent and beautifully presented. We would certainly choose Celadon again when we return to Napa.

    I live in Napa and have so many wonderful choices when I meet friends for lunch, but we always come back to Celadon. Greg, Beth and Marcos have set a standard that guarantees we will enjoy fantastic food, a friendly, efficient staff, and great service. I usually order one of their constantly changing "daily specials" that take advantage of the fresh, seasonal offerings of our wonderful valley farms. The pairings of the ingredients selected for each dish, complimented by distinct sauces and toppings, never fail to please. My husband and I, and so many of our local friends, name this as our favorite hometown restaurant.

    Our first trip to Napa and someone recommended Celadon. It lived up to the billing. Food was great, creative dishes on the menu made it difficult to choose. A little expensive, but we learned that is the case all over Napa. Ambiance is OK - not a super romantic or private setting, but for a couple or a small group that wants good food and wine and comfortable conversation, you won't be disappointed.

    We have been eating at Celadon since before they moved to their current location and it never fails to deliver. The calamari is the BEST you will find in town. Their entree's are always excellent, so much so that you can begin to take them for granted. Don't. When a restaurant maintains a level of excellence in the kitchen for well over a decade, it is amazing. Enjoy a great meal, and try to be outdoors, it is a much nicer space.

    When you go sit outside, it is wonderful. Service is outstanding and the calamari, wow, some of the best I ever had. I ordered the duck breast which was way over cooked, even asking them to cook it medium (ask for it rare). The brussels-kale that came with had sand or dirt in it so every chew was gritty. Aside from that everything else was great.
