Diner Reviews
  • "Service was attentive and excellent. Staff was very well trained. Food was excellent and a great value. Entrees are large enough for most to share assuming sides and salad are ordered. I could have spent a week reading the wine and cocktail list. Great higher end offerings with great local values too. I would love to go back. Walking distance to all of downtown Napa."

  • "This was very disappointing. It was written comparable to Ruth Chris and is so far below in comparison. We told them it was for a birthday and it was not even recognized. The waiter barely communicated and was only readily available to take money. Four of our group ordered filets medium and they came well done, dry and hard to chew. One had chunks of fat. In giving us more bread they brought it in a napkin and dumped it on the bread server. Bad service and bad food. Big disappointment."

  • "Expected 'dressy' attire. Wasn't. Smart chic appropriate. Dark jeans ok. Outstanding service, very good food. Husband and I ordered same entree; husband LOVED his. Mine, overcooked - my fault. Lobster-infused mashed potatoes were wonderful, as was vanilla bean creme brûlée and coffee. Crab cocktail (appetizer) worth a mention. Manager's (?) table visits appeared calculated, based on table total $$ or wine selections? Appeared uptight, with frequent scowls and hovering around specific tables. A brief visit to each table would've created a welcoming dining experience. Example: while adding ice to my husband's glass, MGR could've asked if we enjoyed our meal. Instead, he said nothing, walking away abruptly. Fortunately, staff on point!"

  • "I took my, new, fiance to Cole's because she wanted sea food and I wanted steak. We live in Chicago and have been to several amazing steak houses in our time, however, Cole's steakhouse was a cut above the rest. (pun intended) We just got engaged the evening before and we felt as if everyone knew about it; we were greeted with a congratulations at the door and a red rose for her, we were approached by two different managers and had delightful conversations with both. Everyone was incredible nice and sincere. The food we had was incredible. The steak was cooked perfectly and melted in my mouth. Her halibut was the ' best she's ever had'. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE go here and enjoy the food an ambiance. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!"

  • "I went to the Chop House on a Sunday night. The place was busy, but the staff took it all in stride. I went there for a Chop experience, but the special included a surf and turf option so I went that direction instead. My date had the chops which were absolutely delicious. I had the filet done medium rare and a nice sized lobster tail. Both were cooked to perfection and so was the garlic mashed potatoes as a side order. Both the waiter and bus boy were attentive and very extreamly helpful. Overall, I truly enjoyed the food and dining experience. I will eat there again for sure."

  • "We were in from Monterey and wanted a great steak and wine. Cole's provided both and the service was exceptional! First time having grass fed beef that was aged, definitely something we will be back for next time we are in Napa! The hash browns were recommend to us by the fine folks at Altamura winery, "they will make hash brown lovers out of anyone!". And they ARE that good! Thank you for making our date night amazing."

He is openly friendly and very attentive to customer interests. He gives unusual attention to detail and sets an excellent example for all on his staff. It was a real quality experience having dinner at this truly upscale steakhouse, which is clearly a 5 Star for its class!"

  • "I am not much of a meat eater but shared a rib-eye with my friend - it was delish and just the right amount. Server very willing to split orders, which was appreciated. Disappointed in the potatoes this time as they were not very hot nor were they as crunchy. Oysters Rockefeller and bibb salad were incred. Dessert standard. Overall we all (4)loved it. It is expensive so can only go fore special occasions. Service very good - just wish they would not have been so eager to pour the wine- it kinda felt like an interruption. They were very busy but never missed a beat."

  • "If you're looking for a steak dinner in Napa, this is probably your best bet. Service is great, and the wine list is extensive (corkage for your own bottle is $25). We're from Chicago (and our steaks were too) and I think we may be spoiled when it comes to steak restaurants, so it wasn't the best steak we've ever had, but it was a good experience overall."

  • "Great meat, I just wish they had a dry aged ribeye on the menu... I love dry aged meat and you have to get the Porterhouse or New York to accomplish that at Coles... It is a fantastic restaurant and we had an awesome meal... The sides were delicious and they alway knock the hash browns out of the park... All in all, another great meal at Coles Napa!"

  • "Our group of six has visited Napa the past 5 years and have enjoyed many of the wineries and fine restaurants. The only place we visit each time is Cole's Chop House. The food and service have been exceptional each and every visit. I have never had a better steak than the New York Steak at Cole's. We have tried nearly all of salads and sides in our visits and they have all been delicious, although I must admit that the sauteed sweet corn with blue cheese butter is my favorite! The manager, Eric, has procured a terrific selection of fine bourbons, many of which are simply produced in such small amounts that they are difficult to obtain elsewhere. It is a real treat for the bourbon lovers in our group. I can't wait til our next visit!"

  • "The food was good. Service better. But you felt like you were sitting on top of someone else. Don't like being so close to someone when dining. You can barely hear your own conversation over the guy next to you telling his date his whole life story. Some of which u don't want to hear while eating."

  • "Cole's has always been a great restaurant..we've been going for years. Our last experience fell short. The food was not "outstanding". It was good but not up to par with Cole's usual. Maybe it was just an off night. The service was impeccable, as always."

Eric, Jim, Dave (Managers) and Jesus (Chef) always take the time to stop by and say hello and make sure that everything is to our liking. Highly recommend this for a great night out, for dinner in Napa"

  • "As always Coles was a fantastic place to enjoy fine food and celebrate a birthday. The rack of lamb was great as always. The halibut special was delicious although a bit overcooked for our taste but delectable anyway. The server was attentive. The bartender was outstanding. We will be back many times to our neighborhood favorite restaurant."
