Everything ordered from appetizer/soup/entre was so delicious! We must have been super hungry because we were also raving about the bread which was even yummy.

I wasn’t that impressed with the food. The service was great (way to go, Chris!) but the food wasn’t good enough for the price.

Excellent service, food was really good. They are one of the few restaurants that we could find to accommodate 7 people which we greatly appreciated since we were in town visiting family and friends. Good wine selection and quaint atmosphere. My mother loved her Brandy Alexander!

Napa Cafe is at the top of my must-eat-at list! Four of us had dinner in Jan's Room, with Jan as our server. The ambiance, food, and service were all superb despite how very busy the restaurant was. Napa Cafe consistently performs above expectations.

I took my wife here for date night and let me say Jan was AWESOME!!! She was very knowledgeable on the menu and made great suggestions on things we should try since this was our very first visit but rest assured it won’t be our last! The food was delicious! The service was second to none. The atmosphere was top notch! Don’t be afraid to try this place! You will not be let down! Don’t forget to ask for Jan!

Overall the food was amazing, very good food, but the very disappointing part of the experience was that the African American server was serving the African American guest, and the Caucasian waiter was serving the Caucasian guest, PERCEPTION is everything with Customer Service and for the owner Glenda to defend that a customers perception is wrong, when obviously it did not look right to have 5 tables with Caucasian guest with a white server and 1 table with Black guest with a black server.

Walking into Napa Cafe is like being welcomed into a friend's home. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. The food last night was superb -- the special was their pork tenderloin -- and Dylan served us attentively without being intrusive. Oh, and the wine list...my goodness!...it's been impressively updated. I highly recommend Napa Cafe for a really terrific dining experience. Remember to save room for dessert!

We have eaten here several times since we started dining out again because we feel very comfortable in this restaurant. Even though the restaurant is usually busy (great to see!) the tables are spread out nicely in their spacious dining rooms and all of the covid protocols are in place. The food is delicious and portions plentiful. The service is consistently on point. It’s a gem of a restaurant and we are lucky to have them in our city. They also offer curbside pickup and it’s wonderful too.

Everything was exceptional! Our server, Ryan, was fantastic, making wonderful recommendations without being overbearing. The food was all delivered timely with a perfect amount of spacing between cocktails, to apps, to main course, and don't forget, the decadent dessert! Highly recommend.

We had a lovely time celebrating my wife’s birthday dinner with her family. We had the peppers and steak for appetizers. They were excellent. Most of the family ordered the Fliet and it was perfectly cooked. Wine selection was top notch. Highly recommend! Looking forward to coming out again.

Tables were too close together. They were all filled so I worried about exposure. We ordered dessert but waited 20 minutes for something that only had to be plated.
