Cole's Chop House
Bring Your Own (bottle of wine)perfect but their wine list - the wines are too expensive for my budget.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent service, outstandingExcellent service, outstanding food. Our out of town guests were absolutely thrilled!5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThanks to Eric, Jim and Patrick.Thanks to Eric, Jim and Patrick. Excellent as always.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really enjoyed the ambienceWe really enjoyed the ambience of this restaurant. The open ceilings gave it a unique look and feel, giving the somewhat formal restaurant a more relaxed feel. The service was fantastic - friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. The menu was great! Excellent choices and portion sizes that matched the prices. We have a favorite steak restaurant at home, where we are very used to receiving excellent, personal customer service. Cole's did a great job of matching it!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMVery nice local steakhouseWe had set up the reservation up on OT because of the menu and location (essentially next door to Napa Valley Opera House) but were relieved when several locals assured us we had made a great choice. No surprises -- good steaks, sides, wine list, etc. The atmosphere will never be confused with Ruth's Chris -- it's in a hipper, retro older style building. My preference in steakhouses is to bring all steaks out on a sizzler or very hot inner plate. They did not do this but the steak was plenty warm anyway.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a reservation at 7pm.We had a reservation at 7pm. We had to wait 20 minutes and were finally seated. But the entire time we were waiting around for our "reserved" table, the lady at the front treated us like we were nothing. No apology that the table was not ready, no communication as to what was going on. We finally felt like we were valued guests when a gentleman in the suit came over to our table to thank us for our patience. The waiter was great with description of all of the specials. The way he talks about each dish / food was mouth watering and made us want to order one of each... Excellent food, the steak and the beef Wellington were to die for.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMOur table had a had SteaksOur table had a had Steaks and Lobster the New York was terrific the Lobster we cooked perfect as well.

Two thumbs up!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent Food and Service!This was our second visit to Cole's, and it's clear that this is going to become a regular stop on our visits to the Napa Valley. Our party of six arrved about 15 minutes early for our reservation and were seated at a table on the upstairs balcony overlooking the main dining floor within a couple of minutes of arrival. The atmosphere is casual yet classy, and the restaurant itself is actually quite large. The wait staff was courteous and attentive, but the real stars of the show were the wondeful smells emanting from the open kitchen downstairs (along with the food that followed). We started with shrimp coktail for all six of us, and the preparation (just lightly charred and seasoned) was superb. The cocktail sauce with endives was som4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best steaks I'verOne of the best steaks I'ver ever eaten!

The service was timely but not overpowering. The house wines were superior. We will return next time we are in Napa....I presently reside in Texas and my brother and sister reside in Wyoming. The three of us meet every three years in Napa to enjoy the new wines and dine on the diverse foods. Thank you for a memorable evening.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely fantastic!!!

I will deffinatly be dinning here again.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful birthday dinnerHad a wonderful birthday dinner for husband, two older kids (11 and 16) entirely appropriate, they loved it (especially the 16 year old carnivore). Glad we read previous reviews and had the hash browns with onions as side, and saved room for dessert which we don't usually care about! Service was great and excellent with the kids, wouldn't take toddlers but just fine for older kids. And as everyone notes-- $$$$$$$ but if you know that going in, the sticker shock is minimized.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic!!!! I visited thisFantastic!!!! I visited this restaurant about 2 years ago and was unable to get back to Napa but this time it was a priority to go and we loved it. Thank you. I requested a round table upstairs, got it!! I called to try to get in earlier and the Manager called me back and said come on in. Just great start to finish. I will be back for sure on my next visit to Napa Valley.4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner at Cole's was a specialDinner at Cole's was a special treat and the food is fantastic, made even more so by the absolutely spot-on, perfect service.

Overall great food and excellent service! Would dine there again.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't wait to returnAfter a day of wine tasting and vineyard visiting, Cole's Chop House was the perfect place to end a perfect day. The service was impeccable and the food -- truly amazing. My dry aged ribeye was bursting with flavor and every other person at our table of 6 thought that their entree was the best! Don't miss the side dishes -- hash brown potatoes, wild mushrooms and Brussels sprouts in particular. Nice ambience, not too noisy, just right.3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food! If I ever inGreat food! If I ever in Napa Valley again, I will return for dinner.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I make it toMy husband and I make it to Napa 1-2 times per year, and we look forward to coming to Cole's for your pork chop and hashbrowns. This time we brought friends from another state (on their first trip to Napa)... raving for weeks before about the pork chop and hashbrowns. The pork chop delivered on quality and taste, but we were VERY disappointed to hear that you were out of hashbrowns, given that we had told our friends so much about it and do not know when we will be in the area again. I feel that the hashbrowns are a Cole's staple, so being 'out' of them was a huge let-down. Otherwise, the service was good, the noise was a bit high (there were two parties of 5-6 women near us), but overall it was a god dinner.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
