    Went there for new years eve dinner and it was great, they sat us early for our reservation The food was great, they had a nice beer and wine selection. I really liked that our server let me sample 3 beers before making my selection. We had the flour less chocolate cake for desert and it was excellent.

    I had not eaten here in years, but decided to eat there last night. Everyone at our table thought the food was just fair. Mine in particular was bad - greasy hamburger with limp tomato slices & greasy fries - even worse it was served lukewarm. Not in a rush to return.

    Our visit to Napa Valley Grille was wonderful! It was just the two of us, enjoying some time alone, but the restaurant definitely catered to all sizes and all ages. We were able to enjoy a romantic evening, while right across from us was a table of 10 with 5 tween girls, yet still not overly loud. There were several other large parties in the room as well, but the noise level was manageable.

    Normally, i love their menu, food, and service, but this was a special Thanksgiving menu which was very limited and apparently designed for ease of preparation. It took us two hours to have dinner. Even on a holiday, i expect that if you are open at all, you should provide reasonable service. Sadly this was not a good experience.

    Napa Valley Grille was a great place to eat. The food was good and the staff was attentive. The menu offered many selections. We have been there a few times in the past but not recently. It was good to rediscover this quiet dining alternative in a busy Mall of America location.

    Atmosphere is elegant and cozy. We were seated close to the entrance, so the noise of the mall filtered in somewhat. My daughter loved the squash soup. My salmon was adequate, nothing special. Service was excellent, friendly staff, catered to our requests.

    I found it to be a somewhat limited menu, but it was delicious. We especially enjoyed the sausage won tons for an appetizer and the flourless chocolate cake for dessert. I'm not sure the restaurant is anything to write home about, but it was good and we don't regret eating there.

    I chose the duck, to be adventurous. I decided I don't care for duck! As duck goes, it was good, but I should have selected the scallops, my second choice. My husband's pork tenderloin was delicious! Our waiter was excellent, very informed and courteous. Our table was perfect, and the special birthday dessert (on the house) was yummy! An overall great experience!

    I met out of town guests after their shopping spree at MOA. They enjoyed the ambiance and food. Our waitress was a bit overworked and when my dinner salad arrived without enough dressing, it took a LONG time before someone brought extra dressing. The rest of my party was pretty much done eating by the time I got the dressing. The rest of my party said they would go again. I would be sure that I'm pleased with my food quickly as the waitress was not good about checking back in a few minutes to see if there was anything else we needed!

    Food was very good. Two of the seven entrees were served incorrectly (one missing the potatoes, one was supposed to be 2 crab cakes but only one was served). Service was slower than anticipated. Staff was friendly. We appreciated being able to make a reservation for a large party through OpenTable on the same day.

    We were surprised in a disappointed way. We've been here many times and this was hopefully an anomaly. Service was slow. Waitress didn't know answers to questions about food and drinks. Had to request steak knives for steak. Had to get our own salt and pepper shaker from another table. Tenderloins were greasy and had the texture/flavor more of a sirloin than tenderloin - even though we paid for a tenderloin. One steak requested medium and came out rare to medium rare and had to be sent back. What happened to this place?

    We had a wonderful meal with unique and tasty items like salad with brown butter dressing (great flavor without being too rich, nice balance to kale) and maple pot de creme (creamy, light , autumn dessert). The risotto was perfectly balanced of creamy with a little bite. Good wine selection with helpful guidance from the waitress. Will definately be back!

    Food was wonderful - I like the seasonal menu with fresh root vegies for fall. Service was slow and not very attentive - if this was improved Napa Valley might rank up there with one of my favorites. Also, they should offer something for special events - like a free appetizer, glass of wine, or dessert for persons celebrating a birthday, graduation, or other important milestone.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2006

    I went there with my mom for my birthday, and we each ordered the creamed corn soup. Definitely very tasty. I ordered the sweet potato risotto with chicken, and the chicken was cooked perfectly. The risotto was bursting with flavor too. My mom had the pork chop which was tenderly cooked. We didn't get any drinks, so after tax and tip, it was only $60 which is very reasonable for fine dining.

    JJMDVIP
    Dined on 8/6/2013
    Having toured and eaten my way through the Napa several times, this restaurant reflects the lushness of the wine and local cuisine in name only. I had the hanger steak, which was good but not great. It lacked any kind of originality in its preparation and the corn and potatoes were simply bland. No seasonings on the food at all. The meat was prepared just fine, but the restaurant--when you bottom line it--is just a nice place inside the Mall of America. I much preferred Crave! I would go back only to see the Grille's amazingly handsome bar tender and skip the food.

    There is not much choice in Mall of America outside of fast food and comfort food. This is not only the best of a bad bunch but is genuinely worth the trip. Great style and integrating combinations. Very nice wine list. Just don't be surprised if the person next to you is wearing shorts and a T shirt.

    The Napa Valley Grille in the Mall of America is a quiet oasis in an otherwise chaotic setting. We had a fabulous time over excellent food and wines. I had the almond crusted walleye which was done to perfection. My wife had the trio of Ham & Cheese Melt, Corn Bisque, & Brussels sprout salad – also delicious. My daughter had the duck confit hash – delicious. The chef did a masterful job in both preparation & presentation! Michal our server did a fantastic job of explaining the menu and answering our questions. She has the type of personality which makes the customer feel at home and welcomed. Couple all this with a good selection of wines and draft beers & this becomes a restaurant I highly recommend.

    Dined on 6/10/2013
    We had a waitress (and I can't remember her name) that was absolutely wonderful. I was entertaining some guests from Europe who had just flown in. The waitress took the time to discuss meal and drink selections with us, but especially took the time to talk to us and make us feel very welcome at the restaraunt. We were 5 middle-aged men who can be very boring, but she laughed at our (poor) jokes and had a conversation with us during the meal. I think all of us really appreciated that.

    I am a frequent traveler to Minneapolis and I normally stay at the Marriott Airport and the reason is not to be near the airport but to be within walking distance of the mall. And, when it comes time for dinner, I always dine at Napa Valley Grille. There are other OK choices in or around the mall but if you want an awesome wine selection and a wide range of excellent food options, then you have found the right place. It is never disappointing and I recommend it to anyone looking for a great place to dine in the Twin Cities area.
