  • "The prices for their Rib eye steak on their website is $6 more than listed. The Rib Eye was average. Medium priced steak house with easy parking and friendly staff. Not great, not bad."

  • "Was disappoint to find out at 7:30 on Friday 20th they were out of Prime Rib! Sign indicated famous for Prime Rib and they were out? Someone needs to keep track especially on the weekend your out of the most famous thing your are known for. Poor Planning"

  • "We ate here for dinner. The wait service was very attentive and kept our beverages full. My spouse had the steak which had great flavor. I made the mistake of ordering the french dip. The roll and Swiss cheese had good flavor, but the prime rib was devoid of any flavor. A better French dip could be had for half the price at Arby's. If you go, don't order the flavorless prime rib."

  • "We were looking for an unpretentious , not too expensive restaurant in Napa for my birthday. Being from out of town and unfamiliar with the area we were both very pleased with Trancas as it fit our criteria perfectly. Yummy calamari appetizer with a fabulous dipping sauce. My prime rib was outstanding and cooked perfectly... So huge that I could only eat half. My husband (who's not a huge steak man) LOVED his sirloin and ate the whole thing. Service was prompt and friendly. If we lived here this would be our go to place."

  • "The food is good. My wife said that her prime rib was tasteless and dry. The last time we went, we both had one and they were delicious. It must have been an off night. It could use remodeling, but it is clean."

  • "My first thought when we entered was that we had gone back in time and entered the Lyon's lounge in 1989. We started with the bacon wrapped chestnuts, which I was really looking forward to. Unfortunately, it was a misconception - they were water chestnuts...way different. One is a tree nut and the other is a corm. They were still good, but not what I expected. I ordered a New York Steak Sandwich, extra lean for $15, adding cheese for $1 more, and a side of BBQ sauce for another $.50. (Charging for BBQ sauce?!?) What I got was a fatty steak on a hoagie roll, with no cheese or BBQ sauce. I can see why this place is a favorite of geriatric locals - there is no flavor to choke on. For the price and hype, I expected much more out of this place."

  • "The dinner was superb. Simple mixed greens salad with blue cheese/balsamic vinaigrette comes with your entree cost, but it was the two entrees that continues to impress. Seared breast of chicken on fluffy bed of saffron risotto and a terrific Mexican gulf prawns dish that was marvelous. Six u-15 babies perfectly cooked in a mild sauce full of garlic reduced to a perfect consistency. Thank you all again."

  • "My wife and I were visiting Napa and looking for a restaurant that locals eat at. The conceierge recommended this steakhouse. Trancas was what you'd expect from a locals steakhouse. Interior was clean, but nothing fancy. Service was outstanding. Unfortunately, the food was just average. We both had the Prime Rib which the menu said was a specialty. We were served an ample portion of meat that was cooked to our specifications. Unfortunately, it wasn't as tender as most prime ribs are. In fact it was very firm, like a NY Strip. Taste was OK, but nothing "special". Overall it was an acceptable dining experience, but it is not likely one that I will repeat the next time we are in Napa."

  • "My wife and I were visiting the Napa area and really wanted to have a great steak. The food at Trancas Steakhouse was excellent and the prices were quite reasonable for an outstanding meal. The wait staff was courteous and professional. We were there on Mother's Day and it was an overall excellent dining experience."

  • "My husband had been out at the wineries all day and ready for a great eat. The prime rib and short rib we ordered were delicious. This is not the place to go for a romantic dinner, as it looks like a place that has been around a while. Very casual and relaxed atmosphere. I felt a little over dressed. Great for a large group since the pricing was reasonable and if you like karaoke. I was impressed by the number of people that got up to sing. I guess liquid courage? Also got to keep up with the warriors game which was a plus. "

  • "had 6:30 reservations and had to wait 1 hour before being seated at our table. it took another 15 or 20 minutes before we received menus and water. when the apitisers were served 2 out of our group of 8 were forgotten. then entrees were the same fiasco. two steak entrees were missing. we had to ask someone for our waiter several times. would not go back or recommend this place to anyone"

  • "Been here few times over the years and always much time in between. The food is okay , maybe step above Sizzler down the street. The food always seems to be just average never meeting the price they charge. Service is good and friendly, but not very experienced. I had Lamb and wife had Prime Rib. Just average and was $70 without drinks. "

  • "Last week my husband and I went to Napa for 7 days. Our kids and granddaughter (8 years) joined us for the weekend. Prior to their arrival, my husband and I saw the town (wine train, Safari West, dined at Bottega, more wine tasting, etc.), but our dinner at Trancas is the highlight of our Napa trip. We all had such a good time because the food was excellent and the atmosphere was comfortable, very family friendly. I recommend the filet mignon ($30) and the prime rib ($25), both were done perfectly and a good quality, tender beef (we share). The horseradish is the real stuff. The mashed potatoes were also very good. My husband said the chicken ($18) was very good, but the risotto was not available. That was our only disappointment."
    Dined on 3/22/2014
  • "Excellent dinner, one ordered the chicken with a very good risotto, and the other a filet mignon. Both were excellent and we were impressed with the service and the quality of the food."

  • "As a devoted patron from the past, I hadn't visited in 3 years. The service was always great, the food excellent with many appetizer choices. This was my birthday dinner, my girlfriend wanted to take me to Cole's Chop House; I declined insisting on TSH. We were immediately seated, and brought bread, butter & water, it went downhill from there. The young waiter got confused about the "specials" . I wanted the T-bone and prawn cocktail. Sadly, prawn cocktail is no longer available, so the waiter suggested we have the muscles platter, only to be told they had sold out. When I went to order my T-bone, I was told that it was also sold out. VERY DISAPPOINTED!!"

  • "It was my husband's birthday and he likes steak; we had not been to TS for a long time. As before, the steaks are the only thing that gets a rave review. The service is barely adequate and the only food that is special is the steak. The salad and sides are merely okay. I feel the prices are a little high for what they offer but it IS the Napa Valley so we are used to that. Did not want to drive out of town after work on a Friday so it seemed like a good choice. The hubby did enjoy his filet mignon."

Had to send steak back due to under cooked Two many random toddlers running table thought I was at a chuckie cheese instread of out with my husband. With slow serve it took forever to just get water and bread on table and at the end. No discounts were given."

  • "This restaurant was really busy. There was one particular host that took care of us. I completely understand how busy and crazy it was because of valentines day. This woman did notice us and checked on us all the time. I would definitely come back on a busy day because of her. I wish I had her name so 'she' could get credit for this. Overall good experience and great food! Thanks you guys!!"

  • "I made reservations and they were ready when I arrived. We were seated right by the bar which is very crowded and loud. I asked to be moved across the room in a booth and they did so with a smile. The dinner was wonderful and the service was really quite fast for it being a special day for everyone. All four of us enjoyed our dinners. Good food."

  • "Trancas has been our restaurant of choice now for many years, traveling from Vallejo to Napa for a good dinner. Any special occasion we would go there. After this visit though, any return trip there is in question. We made reservations for 5:30 and for some reason they seated us in the bar area...at a table instead of a booth. The restaurant is loaded with booths, and 75% of them were empty. My parents are very old, Dad is 91, and the hardwood chairs made it uncomfortable. However, after a long discussion with the hostess(wearing braces with blue dots in them), she would not relocate us. The waitress, who has served us many times before, seemd disinterested and my plea got me nowhere."

  • "Our server was slow and had to be reminded twice to bring back a glass of water he took to refill. Even though the restaurant was not yet full, he was very slow to clear our salad plates -- which were full because a plate full of lettuce is far from appealing when one is hungry. The blue cheese dressing was non-existent. My NY Strip was to be charred/medium rare. Was more well done and tough to eat. I left most of it because it just wasn't sitting right in my stomach. I spent the rest of the night regretting our decision to eat at this restaurant. This was our second visit. Thought we would give it another chance because we were limited with our time. Huge mistake!"

  • "We went in for the Prime Rib. Six of us ordered Prime Rib, and when the meals came, only two got Prime Rib. The waitress told the other four that they'd run out of Prime Rib and instead of telling us/asking what we'd like instead, brought four steaks. We complained to the manager only to find out that they had NOT run out of Prime Rib!! I'm not exactly sure what happened, but the waitress clearly messed up and luckily fessed up. The good news out of all this is that the manager comped us those four prime rib meals. That said, I would NOT recommend this restaurant - very low-end and not of the usual Open Table caliber."
