    The entrees were very good. Had the lemon gelato for dessert. It was frozen rock hard and could not eat it because it was like a piece of frozen ice. From the part I tasted, it was good, but a total waste of money. I thought the restaurant was a little pricy for what they offer.

    Napa CafeResponded on June 23, 2022Hi David, Thank you for your incredibly helpful feedback. I am happy you loved your meal but disappointed your dessert was too frozen to eat. I have already made an adjustment with the freezer temperature. I can't thank you enough for letting me know. The rising costs to operate a restaurant have never been higher. I have made a concerted effort to balance the menu appropriately but I will scrutinize the offerings even further. I will email you to follow up. I value your opinion greatly. Glenda

    My husband and I were celebrating his retirement! We were greeted by the hostess as soon as we walked in. Miss Ivy escorted us to our table which was in the “Wine room”! It was such a romantic setting and totally unexpected! Our waiter Ian was wonderful! He was extremely knowledgeable of the menu. He allowed us to taste test 2 different wines. We shared the Thai steak appetizer….delicious! My husband enjoyed the “super greens” salad. He said it was excellent!!! I ordered the potato and leek soup. I have to say the temperature of the soup was perfect! My entree was the chicken, smoked Gouda risotto, carrots and green beans. Superb!!!! A most memorable evening!

    Wife and I spent our 22 year anniversary there. They treated us fantastic and had some nice touches on our table to make it special. Really cool ambiance with some live sax while being warm and cozy. My wife had the Seabass and it was very good. I had the salmon, and it was one of the best salmons I’ve ever had… a def top 5. Simple but excellent! Service was impeccable. A great neighborhood gem and feel but rivals any of the best in Memphis. Go there!
