We ordered the caesar salad and short ribs with polenta. Everything was very flavorful and the portions were plentiful. The short ribs were very tender. We had the creme brule for dessert and that was also excellent. Prices are reasonable and wait staff was attentive.

Nice setting outside, busy. We ordered 2 different salads w/chicken + cornbread, latter was good but came very late, we were almost finished. One of the salads was the wrong one, and both were poor: chicken was cooked beyond recognition, even though we specifically asked for not over cooked. Marginal salad greens and no other ingredients even though others were listed on the menu.

At Napa prices this was a ripoff. Not going back.

Had a quick bite to eat between wine tastings, of appetizers. Had the crab cakes, fried calamari rings, and Caesar salad. All were excellent. Would recommend highly.

Clearly short staffed, but did not affect overall dining experience. Everyone was pitching in and doing their best.

Our meals were very good and we’d go there again.

Biggest disappointment was no fresh ground pepper for salads and State restrictions had been lifted.

Just happy to have restaurants 100% open.

Firstly, the food was excellent. Our appetizer and three different entrees were perfectly prepared and all tasted great/. The service was a totally different story. It took at least five minutes before our server came to greet us and then he only said hello, dropped off menus and that he will bring out water right away. Another five minutes past before a different person actually brought out water. After another five minutes he came out carrying two waters and took them to a table to a couple that was seated after us. He took their drink order before coming to take our drink order. When our server delivered our appetizer we asked for Tabasco. We waited and waited for that. My wife went inside to ask again. Five minuted later, still with no Tabasco, my son went inside and a different server got it for him immediately. When out entrees arrived, the appetizer plates were still sitting in from the of us. We had to move those plates ourselves so the server could set down the entrees. We had to ask the server to remove the appetizer plates. The end of the meal was fine and the check came promptly when asked for. In watching the other three servers working in the same area where we were sitting, they all seemed to be much more aware of what to do and serving their clients. This was hopefully a unique case of one server without a clue. I won’t rule this restaurant off the list for a future visit, but would make sure that we don’t have this same server.

First time dining here as we typically stay up-valley. While we enjoyed our food , we had several problems w our waiter,, who Vp was a humorous and engaging person but who couldn’t seem to get things right.

As he brought out items we had already confirmed we hadn’t ordered, the Mgr comped us the unordered items + coffee and dessert, which were appreciated. As others noted, the single crab cake app is enjoyable but small for the cost, though the waiter said it’d serve 2-3. Our halibut entree (which came 7-10 mins after other entrees) and curry seafood platter were both well prepared and enjoyable as well, and there were plenty of heaters to support outdoor dining on a cool evening.

As several boutique wineries and farmers we visited noted, getting good help has been extremely difficult as many left the area or state during lock down or were still well paid to stay at home. We’ll return to Napkin again during a future visit and hope they’re able to get better help

Very good food and creative cocktails. Nice outdoor dining.
The only issue we have here, when it is busy as it was on this occasion, is when we check in and say we have reservation, the hostess doesn’t ask our name. This is the 2nd time this has happened , and we feel as if we have been treated as walk ins.perhaps priority for table location to those with a reservation

The food was fine - I had the Buttermilk Chicken Sandwich and my husband had the burger. I upgraded to truffle fries with my sandwich, and they seem to have just drizzled the fries with truffle oil while on the plate. Which means the fries were sitting in a pile of oil and so was my sandwich. My husband liked his burger, although he thought the pickled veggies were an odd touch.

The worst thing for us was the service. Our server took a while to take our order, but the food came out relatively quickly. From there, it was downhill. Our food sat on our table for a long time after we finished before someone else took it away. We were ignored for a while after that until I flagged down our server to ask for the check. He couldn’t find it, so I guess he didn’t put it in the system when he took our order? Or something else maybe? I handed my check and credit card to a different server and she said she’d hand it to our server. I waited for it to come back for me to sign, went to the bathroom after a few minutes, and when I got back our check still wasn’t back for me to sign. I asked the server if handed the check to and she apologized and said she’d look into it. It became quite clear that our server didn’t know what happened to our check, or my credit card. After getting multiple people looking for it, the server realized he’d handed my check and credit card to a different table. So now someone I don’t know had access to my credit card number.

It was a fine experience until the end, but now I’d never want to return.

I've dined there twice outside, and would go back. The town vibe around the area is festive, there is ample room between tables to feel comfortable and extra large umbrellas for sun with heaters in the evening. The menu is comprehensive, the servers gracious and knowledgeable and the food delicious.

We dined on the sidewalk added during the Pandemic. It's a good alternative and needed. That said, the noise for lunch with autos and construction was less than desirable. That's not the restaurant's issue and could have been just that time we were there. It's a minor and wouldn't stop me from returning.

The food was pretty good. Ordered the wings and crab cake. The Crab cake was tasty and had sat on a bed of blended greens. We sat inside, ambiance was a bar-like vibe. Next time I would possibly prefer outdoors.

We arrived in the in between service time which we were told upon arrival that there may be a slight wait in ordering since kitchen is switching from breakfast/lunch to dinner. Having spent the past 25yrs+ in fine dining I found it odd for the hostess to say that? We chose to sit inside and our server was wonderful. She immediately greeted us and asked if we would like to order from the bar and to get a appetizer started. We both ordered margaritas that were excellent the pineapple ginger and the lychee margarita. The appetizer was the Tomato Burrata Pancetta Arugula Salad presentation and taste delicious.Because the portions were large from viewing other entrees being served we shared the Shrimp Scampi and two side orders Truffle Fries and the Mac n Cheese. Everything was delicious and of course we had food left over to bring home :) we ordered two desserts as well. The lemon cheese cake and the Breadz Pudding. Our server was wonderful even when it became busy she continued to check in on us. Overall we will come back, good comfort food, excellent cocktails and wonderful service.

Had casual lunch with my Step-father. He had crab cake, fried chicken sandwich, pisco sour. He must have liked it all cause he ate everything. I had a salad with salmon filet added. Salad was very fresh. Our server and host were very nice, and everyone else attentive. The only mishap was that my salad arrived without dressing. Perhaps cause I asked for it on the side it did not arrive with meal. Small mistake to the overall experience. Will be back when looking for a nice but also relaxed vibe to have a bite or cocktails,

The service was a little slow in acknowledging us and offering a cocktail but once she was there she was on top of everything. The food was great. The shrimp pasta was on the money. I shared with my partner, BIG MISTAKE. It was so good I would have stuffed myself and deemed it a reasonable price to pay.

Ordered 2 Filets medium rare for our party and both came out well done. They took back and brought two more but in this case rare rather than medium rare. Short ribs were great. Rib-eye was cold. Fortunately took some off bill. Seems like an inexperienced chef? Service, however, was fine.

I can't believe I forget to take pictures. BUT I got their "Fume" drink.....AMAZING smokey container with a very flavorful drink. Our waiter Isaac was just great....personality and service. I got the filet Oscar and the wife got the short ribs. Both we so good ....one of the best meals we had in Napa I will admit.

We were looking for breakfast/brunch on a Tuesday. Open Table suggested Napkins Bar & Grill. The menu link displayed several breakfast items like eggs & omelettes with regular menu. It did NOT state that these items are only available on the weekend. Had 11:00 reservation and were disappointed to have to order from lunch menu. Other than that, food & service were good. Just please be more clear on your menu limitations.

I had the halibut. It was cooked perfectly, had plenty of flavor especially when dredged through the accompanying sauce. Ceasar salad good too.
Best service we have had in 3 weeks of eating out besides the service at Cole's Chop House.
