Diner Reviews
  • "Napa Valley Grille is simply one of the outstanding places to dine in Los Angeles. There may be flashier spots and there may be more eclectic menus, but for a can't miss dining experience NPG has delivered for 18 years in a row. Under the capable hands of Taylor Boudreaux the food is excellently prepared and served by a knowledgeable staff in a very comfortable setting. The restaurant has as an excellent space for private parties and a wine list with plenty of wines by the glass and flights that makes dining and tasting a pleasurable experience. And its very well priced too! Highly recommended."

  • "We had an early reservation. We were seated immediately. Our waiter was attentive and friendly. The food was very good. Noise level was moderate so conversation was easy. We'll be back."

  • "I went to Napa Valley Grille with someone who had not been there in years. We were looking around at what other people were eating and the Executive Chef came by chatted with us, asked us if we had any questions and then gave us great answers, made some recommendations, which we followed and enjoyed greatly. He even followed up with us later. It was a terrific experience. I am glad we chose to eat at the Napa Valley Grille. I would highly recommend it!"

  • "I appreciate, above all, their efforts to keep the restaurant quiet for visiting with friends. Many restaurants have very good food. Few attend to the acoustics and think that we don't want to converse with the people we've brought. This one doesn't make that mistake - Bravo to them!"

  • "Lovely, open floor plan w/ tasteful decor. Nice indoor and patio dining. Excellent California cuisine menu with all dishes expertly prepared and presented. A little pricey perhaps, but a lovely experience. Very caring and capable service."

  • "We were a party of 5 and had a lovely round table. One of our party had some food allergies and our waitress was thorough and knowledgeable about what my friend could and could not eat on the menu. They were accommodating, and the food was delicious. It is a favorite when we are in the Westwood area."

  • "This restaurant is part of the Tavistock group, which includes Cafe del Rey in Marina del Rey. Cafe del Rey is much better--more imaginative and tastier food. Had to ask for loud music to be turned down; after that, noise level was OK. Some service delays at a not terribly busy time, especially when we put out our credit cards for the bill and waited what seemed like forever. Food OK but not outstanding. Atmosphere nice. All right; could do better."

  • "From the valet parking team to the front desk and wait staff - the most professional team in Westwood . Food is always fresh and delicious. Great for lunch and dinner. 5 stars!"

  • "We enjoyed the food, ambiance and the noise level was appropriate to where no one needed to shout at another person to be heard. The food presentation could have displayed a lot more style for the price. The service was very slow. We waited 15 minutes for the waiter to take our order, but had to say something to a busboy. The general manager was walking around and standing in the middle of the restaurant, smiling at people at playing with his watch. He did not really notice that we were not being taken care of, so he probably was not really aware of what really goes on in his restaurant. I would go again if I need a nice place for dinner in Westwood, but I would not go out of my way."

  • "Had dinner with Friends on Friday during the DineLA week. All of us enjoyed the food we ordered: Port Chop, Short Rib, Caesar Salad, Bread Pudding, and Tiramisu. Good choices of wine list and the service was great. Will return!"

  • "I went here for a business lunch with 4 other people. It was really a great spot - the food was outstanding and everyone seemed to really like what they ordered (kale salad, 2 cheeseburgers, ahi tuna salad and caesar salad). The service was great and very attentive and prompt. Not a single complaint. I would recommend this restaurant and happily go back again!"

  • "Absolutely wonderful experience. A nice large round table for our party of 6 made for a better conversation around. Food and service were both equally wonderful. We enjoyed a couple bottles of their moderately priced private label Pinot Noir that was excellent. Portions were generous and delicious. We turned dinner into a 4 hour event and enjoyed every minute. Nice touch when exec chef Taylor Boudreaux stepping out to visit. Don't miss out on the Sweet Carmel Bread Pudding for dessert. I will definitely go back, and being a good meeting place sort-of midway between the city and the beach. Two thumbs up!."

  • "dined here on a week night. easy valet parking in busy area. the service was excellent and friendly. the menu is small but has some great choices of fish, meats or poultry. the grilled meats are especially well done. the entrees are a bit expensive but very well done. good choice for a romantic dinner or small group of friends."

    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "We chose this restaurant because it was close to the Geffen playhouse. Food was great, valet parking convenient and everyone in the place gave great customer service. I had the crabcakes benedict and it was cooked perfectly and tasted delicious."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "My husband and I shared the summer salad and the swordfish. The salad was delicious, with ripe peaches & plums. The swordfish was a small portion to split, but cooked just to velvety softness and beautifully prepared. We felt so good with our dinner restraint that we also shared the bread pudding with homemade marshmallow. Yum! We told our waiter we had 8pm theater tickets, and he was very attentive and made sure we were done in good time, without anything feeling rushed. We will definitely return."

  • "Service was great but food was not. Wit the exception of the dessert which was delicious - the bread pudding."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "I decided to make a reservation here because it was walking distance to the Geffen and we loved it. Our table of 5 had the best wine and dinner before we headed off to our show. We will definitely go back the next time we are in Westwood!"

  • "Napa Valley Grille is one of our favorite restaurants. Food, service, wine are always wonderful. Servers are knowledgeable and they and the chef are helpful with accomodating special dietary needs. We can always finish off a fantastic meal with delicious dessert and even good decaf coffee. The restaurant decor is comfortably elegant. Backround music is quiet and tasteful (often jazz). We appreciate that we can hear each other across the table."

  • "salad was soggy and not interesting and the piece of salmon was miniscule. the atmosphere, coffee, and the service were good but the food was disappointing."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "This restaurant is an easy walk from the Geffen Theater in Westwood. It worked perfectly to meander over after a matinee performance and enjoy a leisurely Sunday dinner. Loved the architecture. Our server was attentive but not intrusive and gave us the time to have a leisurely and enjoyable dinner. The food was very good, I don't remember anything particularly memorable but I do know the overall experience was great and we will go back."
    Dined on 7/6/2014
  • "The food was very good (short ribs) and the service also very good. It was lovely eating outdoors on a balmy night."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "The service was excellent; we were seated promptly and had a good menu with fairly wide selection. We were a party of 5 and everyone was well satisfied with their choices, which is often not the case. I had not eaten at Napa Valley Grill for some time but was glad that we were in the area again so we could go there as the whole experience was very good."

  • "Napa Valley Grille remains one of the best restaurants in the West LA area, with creative dishes, solid entrees, and outstanding desserts. A perfect place for a business lunch, but be warned it can get busy."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We had early reservations before a performance so the restaurant was not crowded. We were ushered to a table in the corner of an upper level. We were the only diners in the spacious room until the last 15 minutes. We could observe the diners on the main floor and it appeared everyone was enjoying themselves. Our service provider and food were both superior however, being seated completely away from any other diners was off putting and took a lot away from our dining experience."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
  • "We have re-discovered this place and I have been going there frequently...both for their great happy hour and regular dining. However, Wednesday night I invited two friends for a pre-theater dinner and I was actually embarassed. We all ordered their kale salad (which has always been delicious) with grilled salmon. The last time I ordered it that way it was great...this time the salmon was literally a SLICE of salmon rather than a filet...it was as though they took a filet and sliced it in half lengthwise. It was thin, dry and had no taste! The waiter offered to take it back, but we were making a curtain and I didn't want to make an issue in front of friends."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "Was suggested as a place to dine before the Geffen. So glad I found this restaurant. Will definitely be back. My friend and I split the kale salad, halibut, and butterscotch bread pudding topped with roasted marshmallow."
    Dined on 6/25/2014
  • "The restaurant was OK but not worth the money. The restaurant was loud and uninspiring for the money. The service was average for a restaurant in that price range. There was not enough space in and around the bar area to sit or stand and wait until our table was ready. The restaurant was just ordinary and there was no feeling from the service staff that they were happy to have you in their restaurant. There was nothing bad about the experience but it was just a meal out. When you pay the higher prices to have dinner in Westwood, I expect it to be a special or memorable experience."
