    We have not eaten at Coles in many years, but it is still fantastic. The portions are very large, so my husband and I shared everything, which was just perfect. The steak was fantastic and the mushrooms are so tasty that I could have eaten the entire bowl. The only downside was that their cream brulee did not have any fruit garnish, which would have made it even better. Do not miss this fantastic restaurant in downtown Napa.

    Finally had dinner here and wish we had long time ago. Service was excellent, portions were just right and the steak oh let me tell you about my steak! I had the 7oz. filet mignon and the thing melted in my mouth like butter. It was the most tender, flavorful, wonderful steak I have ever ate. My husband had their "world fammous" aged rib-eye "black and blue" and raved about it not just that night but all weekend.... wine list was fantastic and they offer whiskey flghts- something I have never seen before. We sat at nice table upstairs with view of the restaurant and that looked down on the area where the food was being prepared. all in all a great dining experience- we will go back soon!

    My wife and I along with a longtime good couple friends travel to Napa, and We were in the mood for protein, so we had decided Cole's Chop House. The Steak for 2 is good portion and cooked just right and the Berkshire pork is a must, flavor and it tenderness melt in your mouth. Crab meat was very tasty and fresh. If you are around in Napa do pay a visit for dinner. You will not be disappointed.

The service was attentive and our waiter Andrew gave us great suggestions. We will definitely be back next year for our annual trip to the Napa Valley.

    Cole's Chop House was highly rated on many sites and was the one steak joint we decided to visit while in the San Francisco area. Unfortunately, the results were mixed. We needed to move back our reservation due to a last-minute conflict and were able to arrive about 1 hour prior to our new reservation time. Unfortunately, they got us to our table even after the new rez time. We certainly can't dock them for that, but we also can't give them any bonus points for great service. The front staff seemed to be annoyed when we told them that we had traveled in from the city and anything they could do would be appreciated. I suppose they hear that all the time, but a golden opportunity squandered by CCH. The service otherwise was excellent. The brie and bisque appetizers were wonderful. The wine list was impressive. My wife's and son's steaks were flavorful and cooked expertly. Unfortunately, my steak was close to a disaster. I ordered the special that evening, the bone-in filet, cooked medium. The side away from the bone was a dry well-done, reminiscent of my mother's (bless her soul) tough, chewy liver I suffered through as a child, almost inedible. The center section varied from medium to medium rare, which was to my liking. The section near the bone was medium rare to rare. I did not mention anything to the restaurant staff since my wife and son were greatly enjoying their steaks and my bone-in filet was the last one remaining that evening. Now I understand that it is difficult to cook a bone-in filet to a consistent temperature. However, it's not impossible. CCH should know this or perhaps they need to send their chefs to the Midwest to learn those techniques. A restaurant with the reputation of CCH simply can't afford to ruin such a great cut of meat, particularly when it's a pricey evening special. At this time, I can't recommend CCH to others. I'd love to go back and give them another shot, but that depends on how they react to our experience.

    Food was excellent, (the Oysters Rockefeller were probably the best we've ever had anywhere), even the cocktails and dessert were delicious. Expect to pay a decent amount for dinner, but it is perfect for meeting friends or business associates or even for a special romantic occasion. We are pretty fussy about our steaks but I have to say we had no complaints whatsoever. We made this our "nice" dinner out during a long weekend in Napa and will definitely do it again!

    Wasnt that thrilled with this restaurant but I am not a meat eater. I Did have wonderful scallops and a delicious salad and flourless chocolate cake. They have a wonderful wine list. My only major complaint was I expected to have some poultry on the menu and there was none. That is a major faux pas for this area. The waiter was a little to friendly and seemed bored which bothered me. Napa depends on tourists and this restaurant needs to up the customer service I know many people like it and it is a steakhouse so my recommendation would be to include a poultry entree for people who don't like red meat

    My husband and I shared a filet and lobster tail. It was delicious. Had a great time interacting with wait staff since it was a World Series game night and I was dressed in a SF Giants shirt and watching the game on my phone. These are the kind of people I could hang with after hours. Food was perfect and timed well. The wedge salad was one of the best we've had in a while. A must visit restaurant.

    Dined here with my wife on an October Thursday evening. With advanced reservations, we were able to book a table upstairs, which was more quiet, with a view of the lower level dining room. The food and service were both very good, as was the wine. The bar scene was a bit hectic, as we waited for our table. Cole's compares favorably to other Steak Houses in larger cities, and was priced similarly.

    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.

    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.
