    My wife and I dined here during our 1st night of a long weekend in the Napa valley. The atmosphere was very casual and laid back and the food was outstanding. I had the ahi tuna sandwich and my wife had the grilled chicken breast with bacon. There was nothing ordinary about these sandwiches. The presentation and ingredients used made for a delicious meal. This place is recommended by the locals and now I see why. Thanks for a great dinner!

    Brought the wife and friends to Mustards for a birthday lunch and wine tasting next door at Cosentino Winery. The food at Mustards was excellent as always, fantastic service and plenty of good wine to be tasted at Cosentino. The Mustards/Cosentino combination makes for a very pleasant afternoon in Napa.

    You went to Napa on a WEEKEND! Yes it's true. And the most civilize place in the "Valley" is the grow it youself, organic, humane, full bar Mustard's Grill in St. Helena. Oh yeah, they have plenty of parking too. And if you have to wait for your table you can take your cocktail / beverage and pre dinner self tour their extensive veggie garden. You can vegetarian or you can BBQ ribs. And fish and lamb and onion rings in the middle. No, I would not call the atmosphere intimate. That would be hiding on a hillside somewhere drinking two hundred dollar Zin. This is a well run business and has been popular since it's opening over three decades ago. Their wine by the glass is the best way to wine taste. And cheaper.

    We stopped here for lunch one day during a multi-day trip to Napa wineries. It was crowded and bustling, but in a good energetic way. Food was excellent, and the variety from sandwiches to entrees provides something for everyone. Great appetizers and desserts too. Prompt and pleasant service with a smile. This place was recommended by friends as a must-stop for our trip, and it did not disappoint.

    I have bisited Mustards Grill over the last 20 years and I can definitely tell you that either I am getting more picky or Mustards is not the GREAT restaurant it used to be. It's still good, don't get me wrong, but I would not give it 5 stars like I would have 20 years ago. It's 3 start at best. We were seated on time, and the service was fine. I just don't think the foood there is as good as it used to be.

    I hadn't been to Mustard's Grill in years (due to the many newer dining options in the valley), but decided to bring some first time Napa visitors to experience it. As I had remembered, the food was excellent, with some old classics on the menu as well as newer dishes. Everyone in our party was quite pleased with their food and beverage selections.

    Second time dining here while I was working in Napa and this time brought my daughter and her husband for dinner on their honeymoon. We could not drink anymore wine after the tours and instead of the uppity attitude our amazing server joked- We get a lot of that here.she was so friendly and professional. I wrote in Open Table about the newlyweds and we were barely seated and out comes 4 glasses of sparkling! The food here is farm to table, rich and delicious. Plating is perfection- I hate the huge portions or cuties artsy tiny. They do it right. We had one drink- 2 salads- 4 amazing entrees and dessert- Bill $200.00 for 4 adults.

    Went back to Mustards after more than a decade away recalling a fantastic meal. Not bad but not as hoped. The music was loud enough that one of the six at our table asked where the live band was (there was no live band). The service was quite slow to start and then throughout. The first wine we ordered was not in stock. After ordering the replacement bottle the server returned to take our food orders but the salads beat the wine to the table. The food was good but not memorable. The bread pudding was kind of cold/kind of warm almost as though it was supposed to be cold but sat next to a warming lamp before coming out. We remember loving this restaurant so we were really pretty disappointed.

    This was an enjoyable dining experience (a return visit for me and a first for my East Coast friend). A varied menu with delightful wine choices in a festive and fun setting. The staff were professional yet friendly. In particular, our waiter, Lonnie, was terrific, with no request too big or too small getting met with complete satisfaction. Beginning with appetizers of onion rings and pedron peppers, continuing with The Truckstop Deluxe, and ending with the Hazelnut Truffle Tart, we were in culinary heaven. This is a must stop for any visit to Napa.

    This was my second time at Mustard's Grill. We have to travel over 2 hours to get to this restaurant--it was on my 'bucket list of restaurants'. If it was in my neighborhood, I would probably frequent it weekly. I had the rabbit dish & my guy had the BBQ ribs--both were made to perfection, with every bite being one to savor. We requested wine pairing & were not disappointed. The meal was topped off with dessert: he had the lemon-lime tart & I had the chocolate caramel tart. I liked his better then the one I chose--just not that into coffee flavored desserts. After dinner, we wandered around the beautiful kitchen garden. This restaurant is on my favorites list--I will go to it every time I am in the area.

    Normally, we love this place. This time it was disappointing and we brought out of town guests so t was particularly bad. First, the hostess was in a bad mood, did not communicate well, and made us wait for 20 minutes. Then the server brought our food long before the wine. That drives me crazy! I want wine with my food. He blamed the bar but that is not my problem. My husband had an ahi sandwich that had two bites of marginal fish and mostly bread. My tostada could have actually had a little fish in it too! Finally, the server forgot the coffee with dessert. When I reminded him he brought it but no refills. Usually, the waiters here are so professional but no one was too professional today. And that ahi sandwich was ridiculous.

    Been wanting to come here for years, but something always seemed to trump it. But this time I'm so glad we went. What a cute, homey, comfortable little place. The menu is very warming and there are so many good things to choose from. I was actually backing off of crab cakes for a few years at restaurants because I felt like they were getting overdone, BUT.. I'm so glad I ordered them! Freshest and tastiest I've ever had and the dressing on the greens with it, Amazing! Pork chop was recommended and it delivered. Cut of meat could have been slightly better. Ribeye special was out of this world. And the halibut and the pork sandwich disappeared very quickly! Desserts were definitely a star! Chocolate hazelnut tart and pumpkin cheesecake, WOW!

    We enjoyed two of the most popular dishes, the Mongolian pork and the lemon chicken and would highly recommend them but the place is so crazy loud! We had read this about it but couldn't believe how true. One girl was so obnoxious I wanted to go over and tell her to shut up. Her friends were shushing Her. Someplace more relaxed would have been preferred by us.

    I was excited to eat here after seeing good reviews. We were seated immediately which was a plus but about the only positive thing. Our server came by after about five minutes and once we did not order drinks (drank wine all day) she pretty much ignored us. Ordered calamari appetizer which had about eight pieces and mostly slaw. Pork chop was raw and steak over cooked. Server did not come by to see how we were doing until the end of the meal so pretty much we gave up on telling her anything, paid the bill and left. Very disappointed they must have a new chef and/or manager.

    I have been to Mustards Grill several times before and was looking forward to it. On previous occasions the food was so good that I purchased their cookbook so that I could replicate their food. I was dissapointed as the food and service were both terrible. The food this time lacked any dissernable flavor. The buns for our sandwiches were rock hard and we couldn't even eat them. Our waitress was unfriendly and almost dropped every dish on our lap. She forgot about the special dessert we had ordered for a birthday as a surprise and brought us the check instead. We had to reminder about the dessert which ruined the surprise.
