    Very loud place. In fact so loud that the waiter mis-heard my steak temp. I ordered medium rare and it can out medium well plus. They also forgot to bring out one of my wife's side of vegetable. The waiter didn't treaty check In us do we went a head and are because we wanted to get out if there. The waiter was prett attentive to the bachloryye party that was dining there and hollering across the room at each other. This is more suited for a buger, and beer or wine after a long round if golf.

    We were pretty sure we couldn't go wrong with anything on the menu. I had the pork chop (perfectly cooked, delicious mustard sauce, and outstanding cabbage). My date had a new version of the rabbit, which was outstanding. That sauce was incredible.

    why everybody rates Mustards so high. Ok, food was good, service was outstanding (thanks to our very friendly waitress), but noise level was so high that a conversation was not possible. This was mainly due to a table of 6 people just having no respect for other guests. Overall, it was ok, but no need to go there another time.

    My calamari salad was ruined by a strange curry flavor. I do normally like curry, but there was something off about this dish. Mu husband's ahi sandwich and fries, however, were quite good. Th noise level and prices are both astronomical.

    I made this reservation based on several good reviews I read and was excited to dine here while on vacation. The service was great. The atmosphere was loud and cramped.The crab cakes and duck were wonderful. The lamb pasta dish didn't have enough lamb, but the little amount of lamb tasted great, and the sauce was bland. The hazelnut chocolate tarte was terrible. The edges were completely dried out and the middle was raw. Overall, the restaurant did not live up to expectations.

  • Mustards Grill--A MUST!

    Dined on 9/23/2014
    I planned to travel from San Francisco with friends to Yountville specifically to eat at Ad Hoc for lunch and spend the day in town (on a Tuesday) only to find it was CLOSED on Tuesdays. Furious that a restaurant would be closed in the middle of the week I thought I'd try something else in town and found the online menu for Mustards Grill looked very good and decided to give it a try. I was more than happy that Ad Hoc was closed, otherwise I wouldn't have discovered such an amazing treasure of a place. Wine choices--impressive. Service--outstanding. Food--simply perfect. You cannot pass this place up if you're serious about high-caliber food. The food and the entire experience was just incredible.

    Mustard's is a long time favorite and it never fails to live up to expectation, even after over 20 years of patronage. Delicious, generously portioned meals presented by knowledgable and able service. In summer and fall, top it off with a walk through their culinary garden and in winter months come away satiated with the glow and warmth of the season. Definitely worth a trip to the wine country.

    Had the signature pork chop and cabbage dish which was divine. The cabbage was amazing and tasted nothing like you'd expect. Husband and I had two desserts- one crumb cake with berries, the other the signature lemon meringue tart Liked the lemon flavor but the not the two inch meringue which was tan in color and was flavored with something (molasses?) Go with the crumb cake! On the weekend be prepared to wait even if you have a reservation. Will definitely go back but maybe midweek

    We have been to this great spot each time we have traveled to Napa. I can count at least 6 times we have gone and had a great experience. This time I cannot say the same. Our server was horrible! Upon being seated, we waited for 15 minutes before anyone even came to our table. We were forgotten about. They are always busy and bustling, so a simple apology would have been accepted and we would have forgotten about. Rather our server had attitude and continued with the attitude throughout our dinner. If it was just two of us, I would have gotten up and walked out. Since we had guests, we decided to stay. We have loved this dinner spot for years, and will most likely go back, but this women should not be in the service business.

    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.

    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.
