  • "Great food and wine selection. Wide variety of dishes to choose from plus extensive wine selection to pair with whatever your meal is."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "My husband and I had an early Sunday evening dinner on the patio this past week. Everything was sublime: food, drinks, service. We will be back!"

  • "Six of us had dinner there on Saturday, July 19. Jaison our server did an excellent job. He was there when we needed him yet he didn't bother us. Nice wine list, good appetizers, would recommend the crab avocado dip. Two of us had the salmon, one the Ahi tuna, one the filet, and two of us the rib-eye. Everybody seemed to like their choice. I had the rib-eye which was cooked to order tender with a good favor. The bread pudding was very good. The restaurant was relaxed didn't feel rushed, proper time was allowed between courses to enjoy our drinks and conversation. Be aware that 20% gratuity was added to the check. I believe this is stated on the menu and website. Not inexpensive, averaged $80/person, but overall a great place to eat."

  • "Took advantage of the beautiful weather last week to dine al fresco at Napa River Grill. The server was helpful and there when we needed him. Food was very tasty, which was the evening special. One thing I don't understand is why they don't extend happy hour to dining customers who are spending more $$$"

  • "Our online reservation was given before our arrival to another group!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You accommodated us, but this never should have happened. You had our reservation name and contact and the group you gave our table to was not asked for that information! Not a good way to start our visit!"
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "We are very please Napa has added Sunday Brunch and have been several times. Eggs are cooked to order and the buffet has ample choices for breakfast and lunch. Especially liked the chorizo meatloaf!"
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "Enjoyed a lovely outdoor dinner with an old friend during a recent visit to Louisville. Good service, unhurried pace and excellent food. I had a very creative salmon dish -- delightful. If I still lived in Louisville, I'd definitely go back!"
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "The brunch menu was just right and the $1 drinks a nice touch. Outdoor dining area was not crowded. Will come back."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "Ownership has changed and the manager said he did not have the ability honor a gift card we presented at the arrival of the check. I received the gift card xmas of 2013. They did not offer to discount or compensate us in any way. The card value was for $125. Their unwillingness to offer "anything" left us cold and made an average meal and dining experience unpleasant. We will most assuredly not be dining with Napa River again since they place no value on customer service and satisfaction."
    Dined on 7/3/2014
  • "Food varied form good, the crab and avocado appetizer, to very bland, the spring lamb. Service varied from overbearing to didn't see the waiter for 25 minutes while awaiting the check. The table next to us waited even longer and tip was added to some checks at their table, but not others with same number in party. It was vey quiet, but was a Sunday evening. Most items seemed overpriced for similar quality/quantity in nearby restaurants."

  • "Our server was very knowledgeable, friendly, and helpful with the menu."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "My halibut dish was delicious. The cream of tomato soup in a puff pastry was equally good. The very creative dishes were well prepared and served and combined with friendly service made for a thoroughly enjoyable dinner."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "Mac n cheese and greens were fantastic. Pork chop a bit over done. My wife had chicken, asparagus and potatoes and said it was very good., we sat for about 15 minutes before or waitress came to see if we wanted drinks."

  • "My husband & I went to Napa River for dinner. We weren't particularly in the mood for anything under the entree list so instead grabbed 3 different appetizers and 2 salads. Everything was delicious, especially the Caesar salad, the avocado/crab app and the tuna nachos!!"
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Chose Napa River Grill because they offer reservations, are wheelchair accessible, and I have always had a really good meal there. I had never been there for brunch before, and was very pleased with the selections."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "The food was over-seasoned and over-cooked. They were using a space designed as a private party room for regular seating. There were only a few tables seated there and it felt a little odd. The service was fine, but the server had to make an effort to get to us."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Our waiter was horrible. Not a good first experience however we observed another waiter, Eli. He did an outstanding job! We will definitely ask for him next time!"
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "Very good mac and chees. Tough pork chop. Veggies with salmon were unremarkable."

  • "We took our friends from Long Island, NY, to Napa River and had the best server! Stephanie went out of her way to make sure the kitchen could accommodate special requests. And when a crazy thing happened with the bill, Stephanie corrected it immediately. We love going to Napa River Grill."

  • "Napa River Grill is a great place for Sunday brunch. We went for father's day and was terrifically surprised. Love the eggs menu and the buffet selections were wonderful. Wish we ha come a little later to hear the live music. Napa River Grill, time well spent."

  • "It was good. I eat here often, and don't think this question is necessary ever time"
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "I was the organizer and arrived slightly early. Even though there was no charge or order minimum, my group of 10 was put in lovely private room - I'm assuming because it was 2:30 on a Tuesday. Our server was fabulous. He quickly got a sense of what we were looking for, quiet and waters for the first hour, wine and appetizers for the second hour. He arranged the room for buffet style serving, came in and out quietly during the meeting portion and was attentive during the social hour. The wines he selected were drinkable and reasonably priced. The appetizers were good, especially the crab and avocado with chips. I would certainly recommend Napa River to anyone looking to host an offsite meeting with a meal or social component."

  • "Brunch food was delicious. Nice variety and all well done. Almond Joy French Toast is a hit as well as equally great dishes. Good experience. Nice, live music on Sunday morning."

  • "I have been to Napa River Grill many times over the last fews years and they never disappoint. I scheduled a lunch date with my mom and we had a wonderful time. Our waiter was excellent and complimented my mother on how young see looked which made her day. In terms of the food my Salmon was cooked to perfection and the Hosin Ribs my mother ordered has was excellent. We will definitely be back in the near future to try the brunch. Thanks for another wonderful meal."

  • "Excellent for small groups (4-6 people). Service is quick and friendly. Presentation of food is excellent."

  • "The food was great. Jason was such a personable and enjoyable server. The food was exceptional (including dessert). The menu has something for everyone yet changes enough that we get to try something new and amazing while still having some staples (like the ceaser salad in that great bowl). Always enjoy eating here!"
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Napa River has a fabulous brunch complete with live music. The food is excellent and you can enjoy the music indoors or the waterfall sounds outside on a beautiful Sunday morning. Adults and children will love this brunch! $1 Mimosa are yummy too!"

  • "We go to Napa at least twice a month. A true gem in the Louisville Food Scene!!"
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "Over priced and tables were too close together which made it. Menu changed the only items that we would go for."
    Dined on 5/24/2014
  • "I suggested Napa for my family's monthly lunch date - unfortunately, our waiter was loud, slow, and way too personal for our comfort zone. I think he was auditioning for a starring role in a movie because the service was all about HIM and he acted as if we should applaud his every move and laugh at his poor attempt at humor. He ruined a lovely meal for us - we were all very pleased with our food (I have dined at Napa many times and have always been very pleased with both the food and service) but this time the service was terribly lacking in professionalism. If I return anytime soon, I will request another waiter without hesitation."

  • "Great place for a special occasion. Impressive wine and spirits menu. Food that is out of this world. Outdoor seating/bar area is awesome for before dinner drinks or happy hour! "

  • "I requested a quiet table online and received a table on the isle that they would not change with any of the other open quiet tables. Service was great but forgot certain things and when asked if we want a box only brought back half of our food "
    Dined on 5/16/2014
  • "It happened that everyone in the restaurant was served before we were, taking over an hour to get our lunch. No apologies, no excuses. Only after I asked about it did our waitress check on it. Something about our soups being burned. Another something about a new computer taking the orders, etc. Not a pleasant experience overall. I asked for the check early, to be certain we wouldn't be delayed further. When the waitress returned with the credit card, it was SOMEONE ELSE's credit card and someone else's luncheon check. What an annoying day it was to have lunch in this supposedly "upscale" restaurant! Not sure I'll return again soon."

  • "Wine selection was very good; however, a bit disappointed in the main course. Both dishes (salmon and lamb) lacked a some flavor. Salads in the cheese bowl was delicious. "

  • "Experience was outstanding. Event was pre-planned for a graduation celebration and the dinner exceeded our expectations. Several were from out of town (nearby cities) and would definitely plan to return. Thank you for a memorable event."

  • "Decided at the last minute to go to Napa River Grill and so glad we did. Started out with calamari that is battered in a cornmeal breading, is was tender and the best I've had in years. For our meal we each got a different seafood dish, I had the salmon and again it was delicious. I was expecting good food but thy exceeded my expectations! My husband ordered the chefs trio of halibut, ahi tuna, and salmon is was delicious too. My new favorite restaurant, and they have outdoor seating which I love and is sometimes hard to find! "
