    Mustards Grill was fantastic! This was a first visit so i followed the cheerful waitress' (dont remember her name) recommendations from appetiser of fried green tomatoes, to the "best seller" Mongolian pork chop, to the lemon tart with, might i say, mile high meringue! All were winners in my opinion. Will definitely return if ever in NAPA again!

    The pork chop was wonderful, the chocolate truffle (huge, not truffle size) unforgettable. Our waiter recommended a wine which was perfect. (albeit expensive). He was very attentive, but not overbearing. Mustards could be even better if one could hear ones dining partner speak.

    As usual, we had a wonderful meal at Mustards Grill on our recent trip to Napa. We tried the prickly pear margarita and it was yummy, definitely a keeper. Ordered the Pork Chop dinner with a side of potato chips - sooo good, enjoyed every mouthful. tried the chocolate hazelnut tart and the tres leches cake for dessert with the wonderful coffee and were a happy couple.

    I feel bad that I haven't tried any nearby restaurants, but when I go up to Peju and Cosentino I just have to go Mustards! Outstanding food, service, and ambience! Only thing I would do is have more private 2 person tables, nobody likes being placed inches from the next table. Luckily this time we had a great table!

    Six of us had lunch at Mustard's. The food was food but one of our friends found very long hair in her salad. The server removed the plate and offered another item but as you can imagine, my friend had lost her appetite. The manager on duty also came by our table to apologize and took double the price of the salad off of the bill. This can happen anywhere and I feel the restaurant did it's very best to make everything right. It wouldn't stop me from returning as all of the rest of the food was wonderful.

    Not that most restaurants here in wine country aren't terrific, but this one had it all. In spite of the crowd, we got served at the bar right away; hostess and our waitress were fabulous. We got free onion rings because we waited for 1/2 hour! Have them, yum. Nobody does that in Philly. Oh, the food was great also. We were at a large table and could hear each other perfectly. No complaints from me.

    After a day of "tastings" at some local wineries, we thoughts this would be a nice central spot to grab some dinner. The bartender was courteous and the cocktails were awesome. The food options were interesting and prepared perfect. The only issue is the waitress was either having a very bad day or lacked any personality what so ever. not once did she say "thank you" when we placed our order or when we paid our bill. it was very "sterile". Almost odd...... not a reason to avoid the restaurant as she might have been tired, sad, mad etc....

    We were celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary we were greeted by the hostess who congratulated us, a few minutes after being seated at our table 2 glasses of champagne were delivered to our table complements of Mustard's. The food, service and overall experience were fantastic, and is always consistent and that is why MUSTARD'S continues to be my favorite restaurant. If your looking for a great overall dining experience this is the place for you, would recommend you make reservations.

    I normally go to the Rutherford Grill up the road when I dine in this area. My wife has been saying for years that she wanted to try Mustards Grill on some of our Wine Country trips. I found the place to be smaller than expected and the food, while okay, nothing exciting. The roasted duck was good, but the appetizers were too small for the price. The next time I am in the area I will be going back to the Rutherford Grill. I have never been disappointed there.

    I made my reservation, with my full name, but the hostess gave our table away to another guy with only the same first name. Not a good start. Food is great but the place is incredibly noisy. No quiet romantic conversation is possible. Wines by the glass are very pricy, starting at $11 per glass for only 3 ounces, not the traditional four ounces. Service as very good but tables are very close together. Don't go there if you want to have a private conversation during lunch or dinner. The place is so loud, you won't hear what your companion is saying.

    The food was delicious, some of the best we had, and we also ate at Brix, Bottega, and Auberge du Soleil. The rock fish tostada was my husband's favorite meal the whole time we were in Napa. But aside from the great food, this was hands down the best service we had in CA. Rhys (mustache guy) was so knowledgable, fun, and INTO the food and drinks, it made the whole experience that much better! If you're going to Napa, I personally would choose this restaurant first, and ask for Rhys!

    Long time favorite and it earned it by delivering really good food for any palate! Not a huge eater so I should have skipped an appetizer (but I didn't). Ordered the crab cakes as first course and they were deep fried and crispy on the outside and filled with crab meat on the inside. Two came with the order, ate 1 and my hubby had the other. Ordered the Mongolian pork chop and it was soooo delish no wonder it's been a staple on the menu. Hubby wanted a burger and he was very happy with their offering. Got an order of onion rings and they were tissue paper thin, crispy and oh so good!

    Haven't been to Mustards in 25 years so we thought we'd give it a try. The food was good but very expensive. 29.50 for a fish tostada salad???? Then the waitress asked if we were celebrating. We said yes. It was my birthday. She asked if she could bring a lemon tart with a candle. We said yes. Then she charged us for it!!!!!!! Probably will never go back.

    We come here everytime we visit Napa and started coming here about 15 yrs ago. It never disappoints. The salads so fresh and the meat or fish is always perfectly grilled and so tasty. It exudes a great Napa /northern CA atmosphere. A must-go place anytime you visit Napa, either for lunch or dinner. Definitely make a reservation though.
