Attentive service and high quality food with a nice ambience. Fair prices, nice wine list and it's not loud. Desserts were outstanding. Comfortable and conveniently located. Very nice private rooms to accommodate 4 - 24. What more could you ask?

Our first time at Napa, the service started off slow, our waitress had a large table behind us (probably a regular customer) but the entire staff worked very well together, getting dishes picked up, filling water glasses, etc.. The food was superb!!! I though it was a little pricey for what you received but I would go back- it's hard to be a restaurant with an excellent menu and great food--

Our waiter was not neither good nor attentive. Arrived at 6:20pm and we ordered a crab cake as an appetizer, soup and salad and then entree. I had to track down our waiter at 7:45 pm to find out about our entrees. The manager came to our table 2 times after this and was very nice and apologetic.

Napa never fails to deliver on outstanding entrees and service. The renovated space is inviting. The food selection will please the pickiest of eaters and the quality and presentation is always outstanding. One of our party had recently been to a seated dinner in their meeting room and stated that despite the fact Napa was serving over 50 people, the food was excellent and the service was attentive.

This is a gem in Memphis that is highly underrated at times and often overlooked.

We had a 5:30 reservation. As a party of 2 we were seated between 2 other groups if 2 diners- It felt like we were at the same table with the others. It was awkward as their conversations were so close. There were no other diners- in that area of the restaurant. Not the best experience.
The food was great, as was the service.

Valentines Day. Menu choices for the price of $70.00 per person. Choices were great. Starter...Entree...Dessert. Notwithstanding the waiter that possessed zero personality, he delivered awesome food.I shall return even if Mr No Personality is serving.

I really wanted to love this place, but the food was mediocre. My halibut coated in potato was bland and the lump crab on top was maybe a teaspoon full. My Thai coconut chicken soup was rich and creamy and my favorite part of the meal. The creme' brûlée was also a tasteless letdown. I tasted my husband's Buttermilk pie which is their signature dessert. All I can say is I don't get it. Not sure we will go back.
