It was our special 51st Anniversary. The table near to us had several middle aged women acting very childish. They were standing on their chairs, yelling and screaming and were quite drunk. It pretty much ruined our evening. We can't believe management would not have done something.

Our waiter was wonderful, the food delicious, portions a little smaller which I prefer. The variety of seasonal selections excellent. Can't wait to go back.

Food Wasn’t Good at all, tasted as it was on the hotline too long . Over salted as well
Server became very angry that we sent it back
And didn’t pay any attention to our table the rest of the time
Which reflected in his tip !!
He then had the disrespect to follow us outside with our paid bill and shake it at us and give us a dirty look because he wasn’t tipped well
Absolutely so unprofessional!!! Disrespectful
Horrible Service at this point

My experience can be summed up by "Meh." I'm not the type of person to send dishes back, but out of our 5 dishes, 2 had to be sent back, as they were absolutely flavorless. The gnocchi was the worst I've ever had (it was explained to me it was ricccota gnocchi, so therefore it must be my unrefined palate that was to blame). My lamb chop was cooked perfectly, but had zero flavor, again. The tomato pasta dish, however, was some of the best pasta I had ever had. Her chicken dish was absolutely amazing. The appetizers and desserts, were great, the service was overall solid.

So do the highs outweigh the lows? Probably not, especially at this price point.

Veggie lasagne was not cooked; potatoes were raw; tasted awful; ruined our experience. Wait staff was great; we were comped on the uneatable meals; given a replacement different selection. But, bottom line is that when you are on vacation seeking top wine and culinary experiences you want to avoid a bad dining experience. Will never return and advise anyone else to beware.

I have been here many times but I must say last night visit was very disappointed. Service was bad and it wasn't busy. Plates were thrown at us and the food was salty.

Disappointing that a special occasion was marred by the noise level in this restaurant, not only by the extremely loud music, but the volume of nearby diners. This restaurant's acoustics needs vast improvement for one to dine there again.

Service, ambiance and wine overcame what was average food. One entree was cold and the other nothing special. Maybe just an off night as our reservations were late.

Very underwhelming. The crudo was insignificant. The Frutti di Mare was sub par. The service was good and attentive. Perhaps too attentive and very stiff. The atmosphere in the entire place was not your usual Wine Country California casual but a seemingly forced repressive quasi-formal cloud permeated the room. Not very enjoyable at all.

As a local this will be our very last time here as there are so many fantastic restaurants around.

Casual lunch with friends visiting Napa for the first time. We’ve dined here happily on many occasions. This is high season in Napa so service was predictably slower than usual, and the noise level was very high with chattering Millennial groups. However, as always food was excellent, especially the 4 starters we had and the simple spaghetti entree.

My Dish was superb! I had the ragatoni rabbit au jus - pasta au dente. My friend had smoked salmon salad and she said it was dry. Another had meat bordelaise and she said it could’ve had more sauce. Warm bread with a delicious butter/cheese spread was great!
Service was slow...seemed like he had too many tables to serve well.

I’ve wanted to go to Bottega for years, and I finally made it for my 60th birthday. Fabulous from beginning to end. Loved the quartino sized wine. Perfect size! The burrata salad was amazing. Cauliflower was delicious. Spaghetti a la Sophia Loren was some of the best pasta I’ve ever had. I wish I lived closer...in NC.
