two visits to this restaurant. The food is PERFECT.
The service was poor on the first occasion and very lackluster on the second. I wouldn't go back for the service but the food is good enough to take me back time and time again.

We both started with the spinach
We both started with the spinach salad with the walnuts. I've had better but it was good. The bread was also good but needed salt.
Absolutely loved my entree. Had the scallops with risotto, very very delicious.
My husband had the shrimp and grits, we did not care for the way it was prepared.
They do not have a cocktail menu. We were disappointed about this. I asked if they could make a chocolate martini, they said yes...but it was not good at all.
We had the cheesecake for dessert, it was light and fluffy. My husband enjoyed it.

The lamb was one of the top
The lamb was one of the top ten meals I have experienced in 50 years of dining.

Great Place to Dine
My mom and I enjoyed a pleasant dinner at Napa Cafe. It was our first time visiting and we were impressed with all aspects of this restaurant. We can't wait to visit again and try the other delicious options from the menu.

Always a good meal at Napa
Napa Cafe is one of our favorite restaurants. We go back so often because it never disappoints. the dining rooms are small so noise is limited, yet they are attractively decorated. The food is always very good. My wife loves their filet and I choose from their many fish dishes. And their salads are tasty and they offer a variety of different salads to choose from. The wine list is somewhat limited but has a good quality and price range. The praline ice cream dessert is so good!!

One of our faves in Memphis
This was our first return to Napa Cafe in a while. We'd been away too long. This a a great little Bistro away from the tourist area but worth the find. It's great for lunch or dinner.

The food and services was very good, highly recommended for a very enjoyable meal. We come here quite often and we are never disappointed.

Mother's Day Brunch, 2013
Excellent menu selection, and our server was very good in spite of how very busy the restaurant was, and having to maneuver through patrons, other employees, and patrons visiting other patrons and blocking the narrow pathways. My wife had the salmon and I had the shrimp and grits, and both entrees were excellent. If you don't want to mess with a wine list, you can simply ask your server what they have close to your choice, and they'll take it from there. In short - excellent food, attentive staff, and friendly ownership/management.

This gem of a restaurant tucked
This gem of a restaurant tucked in the corner of Sanderlin Center is one of our favorites. Food and service are always consistently excellent. Love the bar atmosphere. This is our "go to" restaurant for a night out to relax and enjoy.

Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Napa Cafe!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Night sans kids
Napa Cafe was our night out sans kids. The ambience was great. Our server was not very knowledgable about the dishes. She had not even tried 2 of the dishes we asked about. The food was good, but for what it was and how much we got, it seemed a bit overpriced. Overall, it was a nice experience, just a little pricey.

Had not eaten at Napa for several years(my mistake)but found it to be excellent.
Service was very attentive and thoughtful. Prices are fair for the quality of the product

Wonderful food, special service
We made an opentable.com reservation at this restaurant for 9:30, not knowing that was fairly close to closing (10 PM). We were actually the last table. This did not make a bit of difference to the staff, who ushered us into our private restaurant and provided excellent food and service and a special evening out for my husband and me.

Night at Napa
The salad offerings were unique and the two we sampled were delicious. We both had salmon and I have never had better. The waitress was attentive, but not obtrusive. Little pricey except for special occasions.

Great food and service
We really enjoyed Napa Cafe. There were some unique items (catfish dumplings), and well executed standards (shrimp and grits, pan seared salmon). The service was well paced and friendly. We would definitely go back.

Great Girls Night Out
Delightful evening. The server, Adam, was amazing. Great food capped off by butter milk pie that was amazing.

Best kept secret
Their bread with hint of rosemary is the best ever. Have to make myself quit eating it after a couple of pieces. And the tomato soup is divine. All of the salads are good though my favorite is the wedge with blue cheese dressing. Honestly I've never had a less than pleasant meal at Napa. The service is always attentive though not intrusive. My grandson had a steak that he said was excellent. My husband's favorite are the appetizer sliders! That's a repeat dish for him. They are renovating but I hope the menu doesn't change very much. Did I say the key line pie is scrumptious?

Above and beyond
I took my wife to Napa Cafe for our 28th anniversary. I made reservations via Opentable and included a note with the occasion and names. When we got to the restaurant, they seated us in their private wine cellar room and had menus personalized with our names!
We had great service in a romantic setting. The food was excellent and was presented beautifully.

Small but varied and appealing menu. Food was superb. Good wine. Fabulous service. A bit too pricey particularly for those on a budget.

It was a little pricey but for a special occasion it's very appropiate.

Overall the food and service was good. No complaints! The decor could be better but the overall look and feel is okay. I would recommend to a friend and possibly return!

Great spot for lunch!
The food and ambience were terrific. It was perfect for a business lunch for a key client.
9/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a great night! The service was informative and just attentive enough. Every dish was perfection and brought out perfectly with each change or addition we requested. Haven't been here in awhile, for no particular reason, and now we all can't wait to go back.

My top choice for a business lunch!
My office is within waking distance to Napa Cafe. When out of town reps come to meet with me we walk to Napa Cafe. For lunch my guests will often ask what is good. I recommend the meatloaf which conjures up a look of curiosity in such a quaint dining atmosphere. They try it and love it. The quiet atmosphere and ambience makes for great business dialogue. The food and service is always consistently good. Napa is also great for dinner with a great wine selection to compliment any meal. I can always expect a great dining experience at Napa Cafe.

We have lived in Memphis for 5 years and have noticed Napa Café occasionally while shopping in the strip mall that it is part of. From the outside, it's nothing special to look at, which might be why it took us so long to try it. We finally decided to give it a shot last weekend. I was immediately surprised when we entered the restaurant by how nice it was. The lighting was perfect (romantic but not too dim), the furnishing and artwork were great, and it was quiet! The service was a little bit slow, but our waitress was friendly and did not make any mistakes. The food was absolutely delicious and all four people in our dining party were thrilled with their order. We will definitely be back!
