    Celadon has been a favorite spot when visiting Napa but we won't be returning. We were greeted politely but it went downhill from there - and we brought friends to whom we had raved about the place. Our server had an "attitude" from the time he approached the table. Every question we asked he answered condescendingly and was inattentive once our orders were placed. The food was only OK but we never complained about anything until our over-baked bread pudding came and we asked for sauce just to make it edible. When we made the reservation we said we were celebrating a birthday - the hostess even mentioned it - but our waiter never did. Wish we'd gotten his name since he's the reason we won't come back (he had a shaved head) but what a shame!

    This was one of my favorite places we dined while in Napa. The restaurant has a beautifully lit patio and inside dining as well. Their food was all very fresh and seasonal. The staff was attentive and friendly, but not overly stuffy as sometimes encountered at a high end restaurant. I would definitely recommend this restaurant - it's great for a date night or a special ocassion.

  • Mediocre vegetarian options
    OpenTable Diner Since 2011
    Dined on 10/18/2014
    The polenta and veggies dish was about the most tasteless concoction I've ever had in a higher end restaurant. I can't imagine that the chef would ever choose this dish to eat personally. Three of us ordered this choice and the conclusion was unanimous...really bad. Maybe the steaks are better but if you are a health conscious vegetarian, look elsewhere for better choices. Nice ambiance and packed with diners but we were underwhelmed. The warning should have been a restaurant that bills itself as "comfort food".

    Celadon is a show case. We often take our out of state family members here and enjoy wonderful food, service and atmosphere. The food is always prepared -- yummy. From the moment you enter the patio and hostess greets and seats you are a welcomed member of their community. All service staff are professional and friendly. If you are in Napa, dine at Celadon.

    When I made reservations, I noted it was my husbands and my 30th wedding anniversary. When we arrived, the hostess greeted us by saying "Happy Anniversary" before taking us right away to a lovely table next to the cozy fireplace. Immediatly our waiter Angie came over and to our surprise brought us champagne, wishing us a happy anniversary too. It made us feel so welcomed, appreciated and special. The service and food were over the top excellent. We couldn't have asked for a more wonderful evening, thank you to Angie and the chef, it will always be a happy memory.

    My wife and I were really looking foreward to dining at Celadon after a hard day on the golf course.Upon arriving we were greeted by a nice young lady who right away led us to our table. We were happy to see how quickly our waiter introduced himself and proceeded to take our orders. Looking around it was nice to see groups and couples enjoying themselves. All I have to say is our dinner was Great. Your manager talked with us and we noticed how helpful he was. It was nice to see him helping customers along with his fellow employees. We have told many friends about Celadon. Every time we come to Napa this is by far one of our Favorite restaurants. Thank you very much, Aloha Tom and Tricia

    Celadon is ideally located, but also with beautifully romantic ambiance. The archway laced with greenery and lights is so inviting and sets the mood for a perfectly delicious and memorable meal. Celadon is where we go when we want the best quality "Napa" dining experience, whether it is just the two of us or our foodie friends and colleagues are visiting. The calamari never fails and we order it when the water is brought to the table. Thanks Greg Cole for crafting an interesting and savory menu. We love it and are loyal diners.

    Celadon was a perfect fit for our last stop on our girls trip to Napa. The atmosphere was wonderful, not too loud to where we weren't shouting at each other to have a conversation, and had a homey feel to it. The staff were polite, welcoming and attentive. The drinks were delicious, and the food was amazing. What a great experience all around.

    As usual, Celadon, tops the list of "where, when visiting Napa Valley, do I start." We stop by for lunch every year for our annual pilgrimage to arguably the best wine region in the world. All 8 of us were "over the top" about the food and ambiance. This is a "must do" for anyone looking for great quality, creativity and reason pricing.

    Loved the openness of the patio and not feeling as if the patrons next to us were dining at our table. As a surprise, I was able to pre-order sparkling wine for the table which was waiting for us upon arrival. Our waitress was pleasant and attentive throughout the evening. We started with a small plate of calamari and it was hands down the best we have had dining out. For our dinner, I had the ahi tuna and my fiancé had the lamb, both were delicious and cooked to perfection. For dessert, we had the creme brûlée and what a pleasant surprise main ingredient bananas. Most delicious! Overall, the night was amazing from start to finish and I would recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for a romantic dinner in Napa!

    We got a gift card from our kids and what a great night out we had. Food was great; started w/ small plates, the crab cake and goat cheese crustini, hmmmmm good. I had the steak and my husband had the duck. The steak was prob. one of the best I've had. Cooked and seasoned perfectly. The duck needed a bit more seasoning, a little bland. We shared the cobbler, it was great. Staff was nice enough. Overall a very nice night out. I would have given it a 5 star had the duck been seasoned just a bit more. :)

    I made reservations here several months before our trip to Napa because I had heard such great things. We arrived on time for our reservation and were asked to wait in the bar for about 10 minutes. An hour and 15 minutes later we were finally seated, with no comped drinks and to a clueless waitress. Our appetizers were good. My husband's pork porterhouse was thin, overcooked and very disappointing. I had the pasta special and the heirloom tomato salad. Both were good, but we were all exhausted by the time the main course arrived. One of our party left and went back to the hotel on his own because he was so tired. I have no problem paying a lot for a great meal, but at $150/head I would not recommend dining here.

    My wife and I ate at Celadon on a very busy Saturday evening. Reading prior reviews and write-ups had perhaps set our expectations unreasonably high. In a nutshell, we were seated in a back table near the kitchen entrance which was not the best. The food was good, but not exceptional (we found the endive salad to have too much dressing for our tastes). We did have a great server, and he certainly helped make the evening more pleasant. We would go back, but it is not on the top of our list.

    Celadon is one of my favorite downtown Napa venues, and when it reopened after the earthquake I couldn't wait to return. Lunch had a very festive feel of celebration and renewal, even with severe wall cracks in the ladies :). We shared three small plates that were spectacular (including pork belly with watermelon, oh yum) along with the grilled polenta that is too wonderful. I must say that I prefer the luncheon preparation of the polenta to the evening edition (different chefs?). it always feels like home and this time even more so. It is a truly worthy destination for celebration or just a good meal out!!

    We booked this restaurant due to its online comments, top 5 restaurants, and customer recommendations. We recently went there for dinner and dreaded every moment. We ordered the Salmon and also the Duck. The salmon came out dry as in over cooked which is hard to do as fish is not to be served well done. Then the Duck which was ordered medium as served in 4 slices that were rare on one side and med well on the other. This tells me that the chef was not paying attention. We also could not believe this was allowed to leave the kitchen in this condition which again indicated that the chef had no control of the kitchen When offered to have new meals cooked we refused as again, its a 5 star restaurant where food should not have to be re-ordered.

    After a long day of wining in Sonoma, it was wonderful to find such a nice spot for a great meal. While the food was good, it was really the service that was the shining point of the evening. The staff really worked as a team to take care of their patrons... when one wasn't available, another would step in to assist.

    It is still a wonderful experience to find that family owned, relatively small restaurant that delivers the best at every turn. Celadon is such a place. Uncommonly fresh produce and chefs with long experience (including owner Chef Greg Cole) and creativity equal fine dining. Don''t miss the calamari, a specialty cocktail, any of the specials, or the fish sandwiches. And ask for the patio if it is available. We always tell people that this is one of those few restaurants that is not to be missed when you are in wine country.
