    This restaurant was very upscale - only waiters, no waitresses. Food was exceptional. Wine list was a bit pricey - no mid-priced wines, mostly just high end expensive wines - which, in Napa you would think there would have been more available by the glass at a $10-$14 price. This is the kind of restaurant that refills your water glass every time you take a sip and folds your napkin while you are in the ladies room. I thought their food was exceptional and the experience was memorable. I really liked the atmosphere and would recommend the restaurant for a special occasion.

    Cole's Chop House is well worth the visit. My wife and I had the rack of lamb, which we shared and the hash browned potatoes with onions served family style and large enough for at least 4. Food was great and our waiter, Manny, was very attentive. We will be back.

    We were visiting Napa on vacation, and Cole's was recommended by our hotel for a "great steak". We had a booth which was private and comfortable and the atmosphere is warm and peaceful. Service is excellent and attentive. Get the fillet. I ate and savored every bit of my steak - not even one little scrap left to take home to the dog. The sides (try the onion rings) are too large for one person and are made to be shared. I wish the sides were smaller size so everyone could order what they wanted. Make a reservation. Love Cole's Chop House.

    We made reservations and were seated immediately when we arrived. We were promptly given water and bread. We ordered the wedge salad with bacon. It was delicious. I ordered the lamb and my husband ordered the filet. Both were cooked perfectly. The lamb was amazing. seasoned perfectly. No sauce needed. For dessert, we had bananas foster and the gelato with a brownie. Both were delicious. Our waiter wasn't the most personable guy in the world. He barely talked to us and seemed somewhat annoyed. Didn't even tell us goodbye when we left. He got a smaller tip than normal, but I wasn't willing to take a star away from the restaurant. However, the guy who filled our water was so nice. Our service was prompt. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

    Dined on 10/3/2014
    I brought my son to celebrate his 18th birthday, which I made sure to mention to our waiter. Apparently, birthdays don't matter to Cole's Chop House. Other than joking that he can't drink wine yet, this milestone was totally ignored. Maybe it's just me, but when your kid's dinner costs $70, seems like that should rate a little cupcake or a piece of chocolate. Our food was tasty, but the upstairs dining ambience is nothing special at all and was actually uncomfortably warm. Another parting joke from our otherwise good waiter to the birthday boy: "See ya in 3 years!" Umm, no you won't.

    Only reason I gave it a 3 star for the ambience is cause we were stuck between 2 other couples so felt a bit cramped and very little privacy. But the food was amazing, 7oz special filet was perfectly done. Extensive wine list and service was very good.

    Cole's Chop house exceeded our expectations in every way, from the decor to the the food to the service. The kitchen is an open concept but is unobtrusive, adding activity and flair to the downstairs. The beautiful staircase to the quieter, more secluded upstairs is a reminder of the mid-century architecture of the building. The aromas of the flavorful cuisine were pleasant and allowed us to fully enjoy the chef's creations. Our party had wonderful cocktails from the large menu of beverages. The menu was also extensive, offering old standards of steak, fish, lamb and pork, as well as specials for the evening. We loved our meals and were able to bring home some leftovers to enjoy the next day. Definitely a place we recommended highly

    Chops was a fine experience. The wait staff was incredibly helpful and knowledgable. The owner, sommelier, and other workers were pleasant and easy to work with-so helpful. The ambience has everything a big time steakhouse requires. The wine list was quite impressive, but after a day full of wine tastings, I was ready for a break from wine and got an incredible whiskey list that outdid the amazing wine list! The only disappointing thing, and this is certainly a big deal, was that the steak was ho-hum. I ordered the biggest filet on the menu. It did not come out rare, as I had asked for, and even so, was just ok. It wasn't bad, but not worth the high price they charged. A person I dined with asked for medium-rare, and it was overdone

    My wife and I were in Napa for our 25th [we celebrated out 1st here as well]. We went to Cole's after numerous recommendations. Outstanding! Certainly "top 5" and perhaps "top 2" all time. Bar/bartender was great, requested nice table [got it] and service was excellent [Mike our server was great in all facets]. Food was outstanding [we split Bone-in Ribeye, cooked perfectly]. We had the home fries [to die for], grilled asparagus and slit a caesar salad. Wine selection was great and table service/team very attentive. Highly recommend!

    This was our 2nd visit to Cole's. The music was very loud, to the point where I couldn't hear my wife across the table. When we complained, staff promptly turned off the music. We ordered wine by the glass; my Pinot tasted as if the bottle had been open several days, but the server promptly exchanged it for a different wine. My wife had the fillet which was excellent. I unfortunately ordered the special, seared scallops, which tasted like they were fried in old grease...that pretty much ruined the experience for me (hard to stomach given there are so many great restaurants in the area). I hesitate to not recommend Cole's. If you stick with the steaks, and wine by the bottle, it can be a great experience. Just not this time for me.

    Excellent food and wait staff. Seating for two in long booth with several tables of two is not desireable, too close together and for the price of the food we should all have our own private dining table, not crammed together in that booth setting. I could take a bite off the plate from the table next to me, that is how close we were, did not enjoy that. Be sure to request a table or to be seated upstairs so you don't end up in the community booth.

    We always make a point to have dinner here when in town. The food is always fantastic - great steaks, a wonderful assortment of side dishes as well as salads and desserts. The service is always good & we are always greeted warmly. They usually have a lively group at the bar & a great assortment of cocktails & wines. We enjoy bringing friends with us when we visit because we know it will always be delicious! I've even indulged in a chocolate martini for dessert & they are delightful! We will definitely be back when in the area.
