Diner Reviews
  • "Our extended family met for Sunday brunch on a beautiful day. The buffet selections were outstanding and delicious. After we ate,inside, we went outside on the lovely patio and just hung out. Even though the restaurant was closed after 2:00, the manager came out and told the patrons that they were having staff meeting so we were welcome to stay and they'd leave a door unlocked by the restrooms. They couldn't have been more accommodating. My only complaint is we had to wait a really long time for our orders from the menu (included in buffet brunch price). Our waiter was very nice but maybe a little overwhelmed."

  • "Napa has been in Louisville for awhile and moved several years ago to a new location in Lyndon. The food, especially the fish, is quite good. The service is always reliable. Some of the side items are a little pricey, e.g., $10.95 for the roasted beet salad. All in all a good place to find expertly prepared food."

  • "We love Napa for any occasion. The regular dining menu is outstanding, brunch has amazing choices, and any wine dinner we have attended has been over the top delicious. We always recommend it to our friends. Thanks Napa!"

  • "Another great evening at Napa River!! The Food, Wine and Service were terrific!! Our server Beth was relatively new, but she did a terrific job!! She did not rush us, as we took our time ordering between each course, this made for a very relaxed Friday evening!!"

  • "Napa River Grill looks fancy on the outside, but when you step in, you definitely feel right at home. My wife and I had the Prime Rib special (22oz, bone-in, cooked to perfection), with smashed red potatoes, and asparagus tips. EXCELLENT, and well priced ($65)! Also, the manager came by twice to check on us: First to personally welcome us and secondly to ask us how our food was. The chef even came out, once our waiter told him we were first-time consumers. HIGHLY recommend this place, and since it is right down the street from us in Westport Village, I know we will visit again!"

  • "My wife and I have been here before but it has been a long time. We brought a coupld of friends who have never been to Napa before even though they have lived in Louisville for many years. Three of us had, the Ceasar salad, which is the best. One had the lettuce wedge which he thoroughly enjoyed. Again three of us had the pork chop. It was out of this world. One had the salmon, which my wife said was delicious. We had a couple bottles of wine and before we knew it we were there for three hours. We all highly recommended Napa River Grill and we won't wait so long to return."

  • "Service was very slow. Some food came out hot, some was not hot. Food was mediocre. First round of wine was a short pour. Second glass was better. Wine is overpriced. Had lunch in early January. Service was slow then too, but overall experience was much better."

  • "We hadn't been to Napa River since it moved to new location. A table for two was found on Open Table at next to the last minute. Warmly greeted at arrival we anticipate a pleasant a pleasant experience. Drinks and starter were fine, my short rib arrived like-warm and was less than tasty. Upon notification the host waiter quickly had the plate reheated Upon inquiry my SO admitted her Salmon dish was only average. We eat out a lot and Louisville has too many choices to return."

  • "A group of friends joined us recently at Napa for dinner. We have been there many times before and this evening did not disappoint. We were seated immediately and drink orders taken soon after. Our service was excellent. The food was really delicious. Their wedge salad is a must. In a city with many excellent restaurants, Napa really holds its own and we shall return again and again"

We shared calamari, scallops, the biggest pork chop I've ever seen, with sweet potatoes, and we got a complimentary bread pudding that was filled with warm chocolate!! Everything was very very nice and the service was wonderful. The entire staff was very attentive."

  • "A small group of my girlfriends wanted to celebrate a birthday of one within the group. We wanted to do something different & chose to come here for brunch. What a great decision! The hosts saw the packages & gave us a larger table to accommodate them, the $1 mimosas were an added delicious bargain, the patience of our server (you know how chatty 4 women can be who are drinking mimosas), the nice selection of breakfast favorites as well as lunch savories all made for a perfect experience. I am considering Napa to be our Easter Sunday destination with the entire family. Well done Napa!"

  • "I have always loved this place--I've never had anything bad here. Took my mother here for the Sunday brunch on her birthday. Was not disappointed. My father & I ordered omelets in addition to the amazing buffet, but next time I won't bother, simply because they're unnecessary with so many fabulous choices on the buffet."

  • "I used Open Table to make my reservation early in the day the eve of my dinner with the restaurant. I had out of town guest with me and wanted to impress them with Louisville and the great food. Waited 20 min for table, waited and HOUR for food, appetizer never made it to table, had to ask for price adjustment on bill and no management ever came to table about slow food service. Poor service form time arrived at door to table and walking out. Poor service for such an expensive restaurant, NEVER going back!!!!!"

  • "We went to Sunday brunch. The food was wonderful. There is a menu of egg dishes you order these from the server. The rest of the food is from the buffet. Everything we tried was served fresh and looked good to the eye. All items we shared tasted like it was just prepared. This will be our new "go to " brunch. Mimosa's and Bloody Marys are reasonably priced."

  • "While I keep wanting to like Napa River Grill, I always walk away thinking the food is very average. They do have a wonderful tomato soup and crab cake (although I think the single crab cake is pretty expensive). And, wanting to give credit where credit is due, my husband loves their burger. Every time I order an entree, I am consistently disappointed."

We had dined there once previously, but not since they opened in Westport Village. We will not wait for another special date night to return. I'm hoping to try the Sunday Brunch soon - maybe for my birthday in January!"
