The staff at Coles' were very accomadating and we appreciated their flexibility. This would be somewhere we would recommend to anyone visiting the Napa Valley.

    This was just ok. Our waiter, Guy, was very attentive but the sommelier was very stuffy and barely said a word (maybe because we brought our own wine instead of paying their over-inflated wine prices). Appetizers were wonderful (loved the bisque with puff pastry and the Oysters) but dinner was just ok. Dinner was served warm, not hot, and one of our guests sent her plate back to get heated more. Needless to say, we did not order dessert. Not sure we'd go back anytime soon since there are so many other great restaurants to try in the Napa valley.

    Wasn't too impressed with this steakhouse. The food was overpriced and not of great quality. I expected a Caesar Salad in California to be the freshest salad ever---this one was probably the worst. The only saving grace was the exceptional service. Don't plan on returning; there are just so many better places in Napa.

    My brother and I had a 9:15 reservation. We showed up at 8:30 and we were seated at 9 after having cockails at the bar. The restaurant was an open layout, and had a vibrant atmosphere. Oysters Rocherfeller and ceasar salad were the starters. We had the porterhouse for two (which was about half the size of the porterhouse for two we are accustomed to back in New York)as an entree. We also ordered a petit filet to supplement the porterhouse once we saw the size. As sides we got creamed spinach and hash brown potatoes w/onions. All of the food was prepared well and delicious, standouts were the oysters and the porherhouse. Our deserts of pecan pie and warm chocolate cake we thought were a bit dissapointing.

    I didn't see what all the hype was at this restaurant. The male host was snooty and I could careless about his attitude. Now what lack in hospitality at the front desk, the service by the waitress made up the difference. She was generous, kind and sincere. Our first course was taking a while, so she brought our some amusebuse. If service was horrible, I was ready to walk out. We order the beef dish and wasn't too impressed with it. There was lot of fat and tendon making it hard to chew and eat. The side dishes was just ok. I thought the cream of spinach had too much nutmeg. The potato hash was just ok too. I noticed the restaurant recieved good Zagat rating and Michelin title, but I'm not sure with my overall experience I would agee.

    This was my second time to Cole's. My fiancé and I had a wonderful time our first time so we decided to bring four of our closest friends to have dinner. The service from Johnny (our waiter) was great. The only thing that I would have a comment on is if you have a late night reservation try to eat a little snack incase they are running late. We arrived on time for our dinner reservation and we did not get seating until close to a half hour later. Don't worry though, the food is worth it.

    Salads, steak and seafood were top-quality and well-prepared but warm rather than hot. Wine by the glass is pricey. It was a busy Wednesday evening. Reservations are a must. Save room for the bread pudding w/bourbon sauce. Would return - for the steak.

    Love Cole's. I'm a local and I've been going there since it opened. The food is outstanding. It is a little on the expensive side, but the food and service is outstanding. I'd recommend to anyone wanting a great meal in Napa. It is a little on the noisy side, but everyone I've taken there has fallen in love with it. It has a great bar, and it's in the heart of downtown Napa. I'd go back in an instant.
