We had reservations, but were seated 30 minutes after our scheduled time. They did apologize for it though.

Chose this restaurant because it seemed a quick in quick out. Had tickets and were on a time schedule. It was SO loud! Super packed. Alcohol flows, large counter seating and HUGE TV screens. The food bad, at lease what we had, we both had the Fried Chicken Sandwich with cheese on a bun. It was a super thin (1/4 in at most) piece of chicken, breaded and browned (not fried) and the cheese was non-existent. It was smothered in guacamole and some spicy sauce neither of which worked certainly not together. Mine came with a side Salad (soggy, just lettuce) and his was $3 extra to sub fries which were really good but $3? No salad on his. The staff is nice and friendly but BUSY. Price was close to $50 for 2 beers, 2 sandwhiches ($16/ea) $3 sub fries and tip. Not worth a penny. Be prepared the large TV screens and huge counter seating attracts a younger crowd especially during a game. It was packed, and so loud it was hard to talk and it was early (7pm). They cram people in there too so you will be close to the people you are dining with if not sharing a bench seat against the window. The alcohol flows so that amps up the noise level too. I think its the location right on Main with lots of people happening by that draws the crowd. Looks inviting and busy but keep walking!

Napkins is a must dine location when in Napa! Not only was the food absolutely delicious, but the service was impeccable. Bottomless mimosas are a must! Everything was wonderful. Ask for Jasmine...she was excellent!

Good food; reasonably priced. Friendly waitstaff.
Nice live (unexpected) music but too loud for a small space and quiet conversation. We will return.

Overall service was great and food is a step up from regular pub food. Found it strange that they don’t service fries automatically with burgers - you have to order a large basket of them instead if you want any. I got the bacon cheeseburger - burger cooked as I’d ordered by the brioche bun tasted stale - it was very very dry.

Went for brunch and was delighted by the gluten-free options available. Bottomless mimosas at $15 was definitely a welcome sight as well. I got there around 11:30 and was treated to some acoustic guitar at 12, also very fun. Will be back again.

We ordered a wedge salad and beet salad which were delicious. We didn't realize that they would be entree size (we should have asked). We intended to order entrees but were so full we shared a burger that was moist and delicious!

Not as good as previous visits. The fish tostada used to have more flavor, but the cabbage mixture was lacking, and the service took too long after dinner to order dessert.
Not worth the cost during this meal, sorry to say.

We have been to this restaurant many times. The Food, atmosphere, and service is outstanding. They have live music most Sundays from noon to 3 (Doug Houser playing 60,70, & 80) and a bottomless mimosa! The chef will customize your meal to accommodate any dietary needs. There is also a free parking garage just 1 block away and we have never had a problem finding a parking space. Highly recommend!

My food was good but spicy. I told the server that it was very hot and he did not offer any alternative. I did not finish it. My husband ordered the pork chop and it was raw in the middle, he did take it back and bring him a new one. The rest of us were finished at that time and he then took his home. This was disappointing. The wine was good. It was a busy, holiday weekend and it was a Saturday evening so maybe they were overwhelmed.

We really liked the location down on the river front. Had a really good meal. Tried something new on the food and drink menu. Exactly what we were looking for. Will definitely come back and will certainly tell others about Napkins.

Had lunch with a friend and we both enjoyed our salads. My ahi tuna was cooked perfectly
and, surprisingly, the lemon cream wasabi dressing was not too hot. It worked really well with the salad. I just wish there had been a bit more of the greens. My friend had the pear salad and it was much larger than mine, but she proclaimed it equally delicious. Our waitress, Kayla, was a delight....super friendly and on the ball at every turn. Great lunch. Thank you.

....been here several times...this time sat at the bar & had food & drinks...food was great as always....chicken wings, burger, fries, more....on a Fri afternoon about 4p...bar was full...good atmosphere...usually go on a weekday when it's not so busy which is what hubby & I prefer. One thing negative was the bartender, A.E....did not make conversation, took our orders & not much else...had to ask another server for silverware/plate/napkin...& when we paid the bill he mumbled something we could not understand & we didn't care at that point...when we go again & see him, we will leave....first time ever we did not leave a tip.

Napkins is a great downtown Napa spot, good for locals who want good food and great drinks. IMHO they make the best drinks in downtown Napa - for the locals who sometime don't want wine. It happens.

The service has always be good, and the ownership/management seem very friendly and interested if you're having a good time and enjoying the visit. We are so fortunate to have a large selection of good food in Napa; as I said sometimes you want to have fun and deserve it - take friends, enjoy the drinks and food.

A pear salad was served with slices of unripe pear topped with frisee dressed with bland olive oil. It looked very nice on serving but proved tasteless and oily. A pasta with seafood proved more interesting, featuring tasty capers and spices, but was heavier than it needed to be. A generous serving a garlic bread dripped with butter and was too oily for me to eat, though my spouse did. The tables are small and the ambience seemed crowded on Saturday night. A TV showing sports completed the noisy scene.
