This is our favorite restaurant! Every time we've eaten here, it's always outstanding! Food and service are consistently great! Chris was our server this time and he made sure everything was done to our liking. We will request him again and continue to return.

Worth the wait. Although our reservations were at 7:30pm we didn't sit down and start enjoying our meal until 8:10pm - but it was worth the wait. Everything we had taste amazing and the wine list was extensive. The setting is romantic which made everything taste even better. I recommend sitting in the upstairs dining room.

The food was fantastic, it's pricy but worth it. Scallops were the best I've ever had, the lobster & shrimp soup en crout was very memorable and my kids had the steaks which were delicious. The highlight were the hash browns. We will be back!

A special place to celebrate the New Year. Service is outstanding yet not overbearing. My Caesar
Salad was one of the best ever and our steaks were done to perfection. The wine selection is one of the best. Thank you for another enjoyable dinning experience.

This is an upscale steak house with an extensive wine menu, as a diner would expect in the town of Napa.

Don't come here expecting Sizzler pricing, because you'll be shocked. The meat is all hand selected, top graded, aged meat, and that kind of quality and attention to detail requires a premium menu pricing.

Service is unhurried and attentive, when required. If you need quiet time, the serving and support staff will accommodate.

Save Cole's for a special occasion that warrants a splurge. Or, if you're a technology worker with stock options, I suppose you could visit 3 or 4 times per week. On the price/value/quality scale, this restaurant is a winner.

Overpriced and undercooked. If you’re going to charge $65 for your ‘famous’ steak, then you can’t miss the preparation. There’s a difference between rare and medium rare, and no Mr Waiter, throwing it back in the grill does little to assuage my ansgt over a poorly served ($65) steak.

Little remorse from management, just in case they decide to follow up with this review...

After 15 years as a part time resident in the Wine Country, I conclude that Eric's Cole's Chop House is the most consistent and best value in the area. Despite the transition in ownership, this venue has only improved with great food, excellent wine selection, outstanding service and the atmosphere that makes it the place to enjoy with both family and friends !

Had a lovely dinner to celebrate mother in law's birthday. We had reservations and were seated as soon as we checked in. Staff was friendly and attentive. Our waiter was great, and his recommendation of the hash browns with onions...delicious! All our main dishes and sides were excellent, and my mother in law said her rib eye was one of the bests she's had. And our desserts, from the creme brûlée to to the pecan pie to the Meyer lemon tart were spot on!
Only complaint we had for the night was where our table was placed. We were about 15-20 feet away from the door, but every time someone went in or out, we were blasted by the night's cold air. There was some sort of curtain by the front door to perhaps help block the air, but it did not help in keeping the cold out.
All in all we had a really nice night, but will definitely ask for our table to be away from any doorway the next time we visit.

We had to wait over 1 hour and 15 minutes for a table! We had requested a table downstairs! As soon as we arrived they tried to give us a table upstairs even though we had requested one downstairs! The maître d’ refused to clear and reset a table of 3 -4 tops with a party of 10 that all but 4 of the party left for over 45 minutes!

They don’t have enough stars for this mainstay of a premier restaurant that you can always COUNT on for phenomenal food, service, wine list, cocktails- you name it. So many impeccable items i will over order just to have the need to take some home! Not just one of the best (if not the best) in Napa but anywhere I have travelled in the world.

We celebrated two birthdays with a fabulous dinner for 7. From the moment we were greeted at the front door until we left this beautiful restaurant, we were treated like special guests. We had a round table which was perfect for 7; we were seated on the ground level which we appreciated for its accessibility. The food was sublime; the service was prompt but in a nicely timed manner. Some of our group ordered baked potato; others wanted the gratin; but one in our group insisted we order the special hash browns...we had them all! And all were delicious...especially that hash brown dish. Great flavor. Cannot wait to go back to Cole's Chop House!

What a pleasant surprise! We were in Napa visiting clients and I decided that red meat was in order. We live in Miami and have most of the great steak restaurants so I wasn't sure exactly what to expect. Much to my surprise - not only was the steak great - but the Fixed price menu was an amazing bargain. Appetizer, salad, main course with sides + desert, for only $55. The atmosphere was great - the service was attentive without being interruptive. If you're in Napa and you need to have steak - come to Cole's
