    Came here on a recommendation and had a great dinner. Husband had the rack of lamb which was cooked perfect and I had the petite filet, also cooked perfect. They both tasted amazing. Had a side of scalloped potatoes with gryure cheese - super good. Did not have dessert as we were both to full.

    The welcoming as soon as walked in. The great service is over the top, but when the food come in.... Omg.. Amazing. The steak, perfectly done. The choice of sides... Not a lot of choices, but what they have is amazing. We ordered the hash brown with onion and mushrooms great combination for the steak. Great experience. Must try banana foster dessert.

    We come here at least once a year for my son's birthday, cause it's his favorite restaurant. A bit pricey, but the food is great. My favorites (other than the steak, which melts in your mouth) are the Oysters Rockefeller and the Bananas Foster - yum! Our order for the Oysters Rockefeller somehow didn't get in, so we had to remind them - but then they comped them, so that was great! We even added a person to our group halfway thru the meal, and they handled it beautifully. Only issue is you may need to make a res well in advance for a specific time, as I made mine 2 weeks in advance and still couldn't get the exact time I wanted. But otherwise - awesome place. Thanks, Coles!

    Cole's already has a reputation for being an exceptional restaurant if you want a great steak and we were delighted and filled. Grass fed angus and a rack of lamb paired with an exceptional wine at our server's recommendation. Manny waited on us and the service with humor and attentiveness could not have been improved.

    My husband and I brought 6 friends to Cole's from Texas and they all loved it! Being that they are all beef eaters that is saying something. I was happy because I am a celiac and the waiter was able to help me with my special diet. The kitchen staff has been instructed how to prepare gluten free meals. They had many different items to chose from. Also a very extensive wine list and the waiter was very knowable with it as well. One of my favorites to dine at in Napa!

    Our return to this outstanding restaurant exceeded our memories of three years ago when we experienced one of the very best dining experiences ever! We made a reservation based solely on its proximity to the Opera House. Our table was ready, and friendly - professional attention began immediately - and continued through dessert. At first, ala carte dining did not appeal to us, but everything is so very good, and prepared with such care that it was well worth the extra expense. I can say without hesitation that if we lived in the area, Cole's Chophouse would see a much bigger chunk of our dining out budget. We will look forward to making the 100 mile drive in the near future.

    Wow! Now that is what fine dining is all about. Nice atmosphere. Fantastic service. Wonderful food. Excellent wine. So much like any chophouse, the menu is a la carte. There were 6 in our group. I ordered the seasonal salad to start. My main course was the "steak frites" which here was a 7 oz Wagyu beef hangar steak charred on the outside, medium rare as ordered in the inside, with a chimichurri sauce and shoestring fries. It was absolutely fabulous for this carnivore! The sides are served "family style", so the table ordered grilled asparagus with Hollandaise sauce, roasted wild mushrooms, and sweet corn. Yum! All were great. Others also raved about their meals. They have a wonderful steakhouse wine list.

    I have been to many top steak houses all over the country. Coles is my favorite, and it's local for me! A great place to celebrate a special occasion. It compares to Emeril's "Delmonicos" in Las Vegas with its quality steaks and chops. The side dishes served family style, the amazing wine list and the help of staff including a sommelier, make this the best!

    Server made some great recommendations for wines. 2 of our 3 steaks (black&blue, med-rare) were perfect. Another one which was ordered blue rare, came out medium. The server immediately rectified the situation with a new properly fired blue rare and some redone side, which was appreciated. Overall quality of the meal was very good.

    Friends came into town and the wives wanted a quiet night in chatting so the boys headed out for steak. As a Chicago transplant I know my meat and Coles really met those high expectations. The difference is that Coles had reasonable size portions rather than the enormous slabs of meat often found in Chi Town chop houses. I had the signature cut ( The Strip) and they got the Medium-Rare just perfect. If they just did some form of fried potato it would have been perfect.

For appetizers we orderd the lobster bisque and crab salad wich were both amazing!! I ordered the filet mignon for entree. It was perfectly medium cooked as I orderd. The brownie dessert was delicious. I would recommend this restaurant for couples and small groups***!!!

    Awesome awesome awesome all the way around. Be wary of the new York steak as, while it was amazing toe the flavors and the taste in how it's prepared, it does have a gamey kind of taste. My wife ordered ordered the filet, which was in my opinion even better better and had none of of the gamey flavor. However, I liked it but it's not for everyone. Awesome experience all the way way around.

    We were actually disappointed. My flat iiron steak was greatly undercooked and so tough it was not edible, I understand about aged beef but it shouldn't taste like old antelope which it did. The service was fine if a bit weirdly touchy feely. Quite unsuadual as the waiter kept putting his hand on my husbands shoulder which is fine if we were regulates. They do have great onion rings:-).

    My wife and I had reservations at Cole's while we were in Napa for a few days. The food was excellent, but the service was exceptional. Our waiter was knowledgeable and attentive, but his assistant was extraordinary. This man was everywhere. He was clearing tables, filling water glasses, changing table linens, checking on everyone. I was incredibly impressed by his attention to detail and professionalism. I have never seen anyone so engaged in his work. You could tell he was proud of what he was doing. Our experience was excellent and I would recommend Coles to anyone. We will definitely plan to return when we are back in the Napa Valley.

    You can get a great steak anywhere is what I thought and almost did not book here. That would have been a mistake. Not only was the filet one of the best I have ever enjoyed, the entire dining experience was exceptional. Our waiter was on point and made our evening special. The wine list is impressive and yet reasonable. I highly recommend this restaurant. Great for a romantic evening or for a group dinner.

His staff was exceptional as well- very attentive, knowledgeable and we had top notch service from beginning to end. Food was superb! Everything was done to perfection! I had the 7 oz filet and my husband had the New York . We shared the lobster & shrimp bisque, sautéed sweet corn, hash browns, mushrooms & creme brûlée & that worked out perfectly! My husband loves great scotch and Eric put together a customized sampling of whiskey that he thoroughly enjoyed! Fabulous dining experience & we will definitely return!

    Wow. This was one of the best steaks we had ever tasted. Our group ordered 3 steaks and the center cut pork chop. "Pork Chop" missed out on the steak and has been moaning about it ever since. Also try the hash browns with onion. Our one "beef" was a snarky and sarcastic manager who made us wait 22 minutes for a table when we arrived a little early. Once seated - food and service were 5 stars so he cost them a star.

    We'd heard mixed opinions regarding the "Napability" of this unapologetically old school steak. We came in the first time, hung at the bar , and had a great experience with a first rate bartender (wish we could remember his name!!) We came in a few weeks later for dinner literally surrounded by tables celebrating about anything you could imagine, the gamut of guests ran from a preacher and wife from the midwest, to a table of folks from Jersey out for a good time, and back to a family from the Central Valley here to load up on the biggest baddest plates of meat in town. I hardly think any of them were disappointed -- seamless service paired with the biggest baddest plates of meat any carnivore could ask for. Who can't love that?

    From start to finish, Cole's was top notch. My husband was thrilled with the Rye whisky tasting flight. Our salad was a perfect and light start to our meal. My husband's strip steak was cooked to perfection and my surf and turf special was the perfect portion. The hash browns were excellent- certainly enough to share. We topped dinner off with the creme brulee, which is my favorite! We will certainly be back next time we are in Napa.
