Wow. What great experience. We had scallops with some kind of dream sweet potato that was just awesome. Beautiful quiet place with an elegant ambiance.

The staff is absolutely wonderful. My mother's birthday dinner blossomed from a party of 6 to a party of 14-16. We had to cancel the reservation at Moondance Grill at the last minute because there was already a large party booked in the private dining area. We book 3 reservations at the Napa Cafe just so we wouldn't ruin her birthday. We figured if they had 3 tables of 6 available to book, they could surely accommodate. They did just that. The food, ambiance and staff were magnificent.

We love the vegan option on your menu and come often for it. We do feel, though, that the price is high for the meal. Just some feedback. Won't stop us from coming, but wanted to share.

We celebrated my husband's birthday here again because we love Napa Cafe, Glenda Hastings (the proprietor) and, of course, the food so much. The staff went out of their way to make our evening memorable, from the decorations in Jan's Room, where we ate, to the dessert plate, the evening was an unqualified success!

Excellent short ribs. Less impressed with the lamb tenderloin, dry rice. The cheesecake excellent (by another name I can’t remember).

Napa never disappoints! Never. We dined outside while the beautiful saxophone melodies drifted through the doors. Ryan suggested a great wine and gave impeccable service. The filet was cooked to perfection, the beet/chevre salad was tasty. But, can we talk about the absolute BEST tomato soup in Memphis? There is some kind of magic sprinkled in that soup. Top the night off with a hug, a smile, and genuine appreciation from Glenda Hastings and you've had an excellent dining experience! Don't miss it!

Our server, Jan, was very friendly & helpful with making menu choices. I tried the shrimp & grits per her recommendation and it was outstanding! The ambience was very lovely and the owner, Glenda Hastings spend time to talk to us. She has done a phenomenal job with the restaurant and menu item choices.
We will definitely be back and would love to try the wine cellar dining experience: it looks very private & romantic for a special occasion!

Food was excellent. Very good specials and excellent variety of dishes. The fish dishes were very good. The only complaint was service . Waited a long time for drinks multiple times. waited quite some time for appetizer and entrees. The restaurant was also very noisy and difficult to hear a conversation for table of six.

We enjoyed a fantastic meal at Napa Cafe - our waiter was enthusiastic about the specials which steered us to perfectly prepared dining. Looking forward to a quick return. Our guests were from New Orleans so the bar was set high and Napa Cafe delivered!

Loved this restaurant! We have been trying for years to eat here and finally made it.
The wait staff is amazing.
We ordered the shrimp dumplings, Napa salad, shrimp and grits, and the crab cakes.
Everything was delivered hot and fresh, the taste was so delicious.
The manager came around to check on us and chat -she was very kind and we told her how much we liked Napa.
We were so stuffed from the amazing food but we had to order the desserts.
We ordered the Belgian Chocolate Pate and the Praline Pecan Ice Cream. So delicious!
We would definitely recommend this restaurant - we love to eat local!
Shout out to Napa and their staff for a wonderful dining experience.
