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.

it was a special occasion and they did something subtle and unique to help us celebrate. (I won't spoil it by telling). the food was delicious from Appetizer, bread, to main dishes. The asparagus was perfectly cooked, We wished we we had room for some dessert as the selections looked good. As a bonus I didn't have to ask for anything special butmy entree was Keto friendly with excellent crab cakes without a bunch of fillers paired with the asparagus and spinach sides.

Overall, overpriced and not very special. Hostess seemed annoyed that we came to dine. Service was responsive but I've had much better service elsewhere. Lamb was tasty but vegetable left much to be desired. The desserts were tasty but on the expensive side. Didn't think the restaurant was very clean.

We hadn’t been to Napa in a while, as it kind of fell off our radar, but we’re glad we rediscovered it. The service was outstanding, the menu selections varied, the food excellent. The only mild complaint is that we weren’t expecting live music, which, although low key and nicely performed, was a bit of a distraction and made conversation a little more difficult with our middle-aged hearing issues. But overall a lovely experience, and it’s back on our radar now!

It was Jazz Night at Napa Cafe and Alphonso's music definitely added to the overall experience. My husband loved the pork chop and I opted for a Caesar salad and a bowl of their irresistible curried beef and vegetable soup; I was far from disappointed. Dinner was topped off with a key lime tart and a slice of divine dark chocolate pate. Jan did a superb job of serving us. We will definitely be back soon and heartily recommend dining at Napa Cafe.

Fabulous dinner for the whole family! We were there for a Birthday and everything was perfect! Fabulous meal, beautiful room, the staff all came by to give Birthday wishes and it was truly a great evening. We love to go here since we like to split an entrée and they never frown on this and serve it on two plates. Glenda is doing a fantastic job running this restaurant and supporting our local community!

We went on a Saturday night because they had a Jazz musician playing. I didn't realize that the music was in the bar. They did, however, place us at a table where we could hear the music very well. If you are going to hear the music and eat, make sure to request to be seated in the bar area, which is very nice!
