I had my first date here, great
food mood lighting, excellent service, although the table next to us had 2 older guys arguing with eachother wich I thought was funny but a little outa line."

It's difficult to find a nice
family-style restaurant in Napa and this one fits the bill."

Service was slow sat for long time
before sever greeted us, then it took long for drinks ,soup and salad to began to come to table. 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!"

THE COMFORT AND CHARM OF THIS OLD
RAT PACK AMBIENCE IS FUN AND COMFORTABLE TO EXPERIENCE. COMFORTABLE BOOTHS AND GOOD SERVICE MADE OUR DINING EXPERIENCE A PLEASURE."

Tired of the Napa Yuppie
restaurants then this would be a good option where steak is the king."

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."

We frequently dine at trancas
steakhouse it is affordable as well as delicious. My daughters and I always enjoy ourselves while dining. Thank you for the great service and ambiance."

Decent food, price was a little
higher then normal since my review is based on a Christmas dinner. The decor needs some updating. But, the food does make up. It is worth a trip.."

I chose this restaurant as a
fairly last minute reservation for Christmas Eve dinner. We showed up about 10 minutes early and were seated within 3 minutes of our reservation despite the restaurant being packed. My kids loved the popcorn machine in the bar to snack on while we waited. Once we were seated our waitress was extremely courteous and efficient. The bread started our meal off and it was a big hit and it only got better from there. They claim to have great prime rib and I can not disagree. It was the best prime rib I have ever eaten! I will definitely return to Trancas Steakhouse."

Trancas Steakhouse has been
serving good meals here for many years. Their dinner menu is built around the steakhouse traditional items. We found service to be very good and our dinner was also very good. We would return again to dine here."

We booked our company Christmas
party for REB Engineering, Inc. at The Trancas Steak House and were very pleased with the ease of making the reservation, the food was amazing and the service was excellent. We had 12 in our group and at the last minute it grew to 17 and they accommodated us with no problem. We would recommend it to anyone for their large group!"

My wife thought the prime rib was
good. I thought the rib eye was tasteless."
Dined on 12/7/2013
We have had dinner there many
times. Reservation always honored immediately on arrival. Service is efficient, cheerful, and accurate. Staff very well trained and very responsive. Food is fresh, appropriately cold or hot. Personal preferences honored with a smile. Staff help each other-without being asked. Never rushed even when restaurant is busy."

This is great place to get away
from the tourist, since it is a local favorite for steak and prime rib lovers. The service was very good but it does get noisy. Their bar is another local favorite and a place to talk to the locals."

Coworkers and I got together for
dinner and karaoke, the latter being the greater draw to visit Trancas Steakhouse since some of them love karaoke. First we had dinner and all 6 of us enjoyed our meals. I had the Dungeness Crab ravioli in a lemon cream sauce which was delicious and my cohorts had the heartier meat entrees. They enjoyed them and had leftovers to boot. It was an unusually slow night for karaoke, perhaps because of the film festival going on in town. At any rate, if you like going out for a steak on a Friday or Saturday night and you enjoy hearing and/or partaking in karaoke singing, then Trancas Steakhouse should fit the bill. It's not fancy-schmancy but sometimes a little down home comfort and quirky is just fine."

My sister and I had a wonderful
dinner at the Trancas Steakhouse ! Every one was so nice and smiling all the time. We felt very well taken care of. The place was full and it was on a Monday night! I strongly recommend this Trancas Steakhouse for a great place to eat.I will try lunch next time and I will be going back for dinner soon. My first time there but, not my last!"

We came here for dinner on
Saturday night, Oct. 12 to celebrate my husband's birthday. there were 8 of us. The restaurant is somewhat casual, which we liked. We all enjoyed our dinner very much and the staff was great too! One person in our party is a vegetarian, so there was only one thing on the menu, besides a salad, that was vegetarian. Adding another vegetarian item or two to the menu would be really nice. We would definitely go back. :-)"

They were supposed to have a
seafood option for non steak eaters and it was a calamari pie or something like that. I ended up with shrimp scampi and wasn't very good."

steak was cool when served. Soup
wasn't served until we reminded the waiter that soup was very late. Meal was almost over before the soup was served."

On our last night in Napa, we
searched high and low for an affordable steak house that had good reviews. Even though, as always, there were a few snobby sour puss reviews about Trancas, there were also good reviews. The four of us each had a steak, as you should always do in a steakhouse and they were all excellent, in particular the prime rib (medium rare). Our waiter was very nice and efficient, although a little too manic and speedy for us. I always wish that wait staff would gear their demeanor towards the age and personalities of the customers. We are all older and were in no hurry. However, I do understand that he was very busy and could not control the fact that he had to rush around."

Our waitress, Katie, was very
pleasant and friendly. I would have to say that our the service we received from her and the staff was more than "Outstanding"! She even laughed at my jokes."
Dined on 9/23/2013
We had good service with a smile
and cheerful attendance. We had rib-eye, prime rib, and veal porterhouse that were all good. This is the kind of place that gives you the choice of soup or salad with your entrée. This is not wine country fine dining so if that is what you want go somewhere else. If you want a nice experience with a "yesteryear" feel then this is the place to try. I have been here two times and it is a friendly steakhouse with interesting appeal. The bar had a big crowd and it is described as "full bar". Give it a try for a change of venue."

This was a terrible restaurant in
Napa! We walked almost 2 miles to this restaurant because it claimed to have great Prime Rib. This was the worst Prime Rib I have ever had.....period!!! it was tough and overcooked. I do realize that Prime Rib needs to be ordered early to be a proper cook especially since I prefer medium rare. I was there by 6:30 and it was way over done at that point! I could have handled the over cooked Prime Rib, but the absolute worst service made this one of the worst experiences ever. Our waiter ignored us and the people next to us had the same experience. Keep in mind that this was a Sunday night and they were not busy..... I would hate to see what type of service we would get on a busy night?!?!"

hoity-toity, pretentiousness found
at higher end places in the area. Don't get me wrong, I like 5-star rated restaurants with white linens, multiple courses and amuse bouches, but 24/7 it can get a bit tired. By our third day in Napa, my wife and I just wanted a nice meal with an affordable price tag. Trancas Steakhouse did not disappoint. She ordered the crab ravioli and I had the strip steak. Both were perfectly done and the portions were generous. We also enjoyed a starter of calamari, which was just right and came with a tasty chipotle aioli. We shared the creme brulee, which the menu said was vanilla, but it tasted lemony, which was not to our liking. None the less, we were very pleased with our visit to this local gem, will come again"

When I first walked in I was
instantly greated by the hostess; however, she seemed very overwhelmed even though there were not that many tables in the restaurant. My friend and I both ordered sirloin steak, which were very delicious, BUT both of our steaks very over cooked. I wanted my steak medium rare and it came out medium well and my friend wanted hers medium well and it came out well done. We were both impressed with the flavor of the steak and were so hungry, we didn't want to have our meal recooked."

I evaluate my dining experience on
service & food. Our server, Katie, must have been new at this type of job. My husband ordered a bottle of wine & it wasn't what we had decided on so I mentioned to him & Katie the bottle of wine he meant to order. The wine arrived and it was the incorrect one - then she opened the bottle and poured a half glass of wine in each without offering a taste to make sure it was ok - in Napa of all places . Our food is delivered and she serves my husband's first and then reaches across him and hands me mine saying this is the medium well steak - no, I ordered medium rare and she says " oh, this is it" and takes my husband's plate and puts it in front of me - it continued to go further down hill - never again"

Wasn't I suppose to get a discount
or is that only if I get the Open Table credit card?"

I was greeted with a warm smile,
and given a great both. My son tried Prime Rib for the first time and was delighted. The Cesar salad was incredible, but the only knock (very small I might add) was the clam chowder was somewhat watery. Great dinner experience, even though it was a busy Saturday night, after Raiders Training Camp in Napa. Thanks. Raider Fran Also my water glass was constantly kept full! lovely dining experience."

We were here for dinner the prior
week and had excellent service from our server Randy. On this visit we were seated in the bar area in uncomfortable table and chairs. The waitress was slow in responding to our requests e.g. needing a spoon, additional bread basket as there was not enough bread in one basket for the number of people at our table. The pasta dish had so much butter sauce that it was more like soup and had to be drained. One of the pasta dishes did not have tomatoes included and when requested to have the tomatoes we waited an additional 10+ minutes and received a bowl of butter sauce with tomatoes in it. It will be a while before we consider returning to this establishment."

My wife and I were celebrating a
special occasion with three of our close friends. Everyone loved their meal as well as the dessert items. A real gem for any occasion."
