Ninebark is located in Napa, where it serves fine American fare in a three-story restaurant that offers beautiful views overlooking the valley. Guests rave about the friendly service at Ninebark as well as the creative cocktail menu that includes drinks such as the �Ode to O�Ren�, featuring vodka infused with shiso, ginger, honey and sesame.

Start your meal at Ninebark with njuda or carrot and pimento spreads, before trying the salt cod beignets with garlic aioli. Ricotta dumplings and the daily flatbread choice topped with goat cheese, apricot jam and blistered shisito peppers are always crowd pleasers. Don�t forget to try the chocolate cake that locals can�t get enough of.

What a wonderful surprise it was for us to dine in the 3rd floor patio. The food was amazing and it was an all around enjoyable experience. Thank you.

It's good news and maybe not so good. The food is really good. Not stunningly fantastic just very good. Service was spot on and they gave us complimentary champagne just because it was my husbands birthday, all very nice. One small complaint I have is that when I made the reservation I asked to be seated on the roof. That was a week before we went there but the day before our reservation they called to confirm the reservation. I inquired about the roof and they said they had a private party up there so they couldn't seat us there that night. That's fine except for the waiting to the last minute to give me that information. At any rate the main room is lovely with high ceilings. Our booth corner table was such that one person is seated directly facing the people at the small table next to us, that's a bit awkward really. Also the noise level is pretty high. All and all I'd say it's good not great.

Went for the chef's Sunday Supper where his imagination ran wild. Delicious food, great staff and a very fun location.

The Sunday night dinner was spectacular. We have enjoyed many dinners at 9bark and decided to try the special dinner with out of town friends. Each course in the seven dish prix fix meal is a surprise, with recipes created by different staff, and there were no misses. Service was fun, and James quickly understood our sense of humor and tastes, including a perfect suggestion for wine. We sat on the roof, a perfect spot for visitors to view the Napa hills, and it felt like being in Italy.

Great concept - poorly executed!

We were looking for a nice quiet dining experience and were so excited about tasting their food as we had read a really great review. But when we got there on a Thursday night, they said the dining room was closed during the week and they seated us in the top bar. A nice place to have drinks and appetizers with a group of friends, but not at all appropriate for a quiet, romantic dinner. So we left and went to Angele where we had a wonderful meal and experience.

Much more of a bar with high priced food than a restaurant with a bar. I was surprised and disappointed by the frat boy, pick up scene vibe. The tartare was the best dish we had, everything else was just okay and not worth the price. Our main courses were cold but by that point, we didn't have the patience to send them back.

The outdoor rooftop seating is beautiful, but the frat bar scene surrounding us took away from the romantic vibe. I might come back for drinks but would definitely eat somewhere else.

Everything about the experience was excellent except for the reservation process. There is no ability to speak to someone at the restaurant on the phone- all done through leaving voicemail messages. I don't believe this is the best way a restaurant that values service should conduct their reservation system- making reservations, confirming reservations, or contacting the restaurant if you are running late. Otherwise- an excellent dining experience.

Food was good but our service was lacking to the point we got a wrong entree. Waiter seemed very distracted so thus the dining experience was lacking. Do not know why u are serving a martini in a champagne glass. Would have to think about recommending your place to anyone. By the way when I called your front desk said there were no tables available for 8-830 pm yet open table gave us a reservation for 830pm. Something is wrong with that?

Had a great time! We ordered many of the small plates and did things family style. The food was fantastic the view was amazing, and the service was exceptional! I highly recommend Ninebark!

Have been a Ninebark fan since they opened. Went to my first Sunday Supper and was blown away. Eight course dinner with enough food for another meal. The food was creative, well prepared and absolutely delicious. Even better than their regular menu (which sets a high standard). Sitting on their rooftop on a gorgeous Napa evening. What could be better?

The salt cod beignets are excellent. I would return for a cocktail and the beignets, either down in the bar or outside on the third floor deck. The second floor dining room is... meh. Dinner was very good, some very unique dishes, but it somehow lacked that certain something that would give it a space among our list of local favorites for a full meal. In summary: worth one visit for dinner and repeat visits for cocktails and snacks.

Saw a recommendation in Robb report so cancelled a reserve at the Farm where we had dined earlier in the week to give this spot a try - what a MISTAKE! Didn't like anything about it. Host gave
