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.

The server (who was also bartending) was very knowledgeable and helpful. He made eye contact during recommendations and gave excellent service throughout the night. He was able to make great suggestions based on preference as well as wine pairings. Says a lot about him and the restaurants’ ability to prepare their staff. Love this place.

We enjoyed our dinner at Napa Cafe. Our server, Ryan, was excellent and we will definitely request him when we come again! Our cocktails were very good. My husband ordered the pork chop and ate every bite! I had the special of the night, which was halibut, and cleared my plate! We will definitely be returning.

One of go-to places for everything. We love Napa cafe for special occasions-Mother’s Day, birthdays, etc and New Years Eve was an amazing meal. This visit was just to spend time together over a great meal. They always deliver on service, food and an overall enjoyable experience.

The food was perfectly prepared as usual. Our table of 6 had a variety of regular menu items and specials. The bread (housemade?) is worth the extra calories. If you can get one of the private rooms, do so. It was perfect for a reunion of high school classmates of a certain age.

It was amazing! It was my friends birthday and they even personalized the menu with her name on it. The service was fantastic and the filet melted like butter. Amazing place and can’t wait to get back to it.

We went to Napa Cafe for Mother's Day dinner. Normally restaurant is not open on Sunday's but they open for Mother's Day. The menu was somewhat limited but had options for all tastes. The service was outstanding. We were seated within 5-10 minutes of our reservation time. The food was delicious. The drinks were a bit pricey, but.. that's restaurant drinks. Our server was very attentive and accommodated a few of our small needs, like water with no ice and extra bread. Overall, great experience. I will definitely return to Napa during normal hours.
