Absolutely delicious and the staff was so friendly, and helpful! They treated us like we were family guests. There was a chicken dish served with french fries and a black truffle dip that was out of this world! As was the steak tartar appetizer.

My husband and I went there to celebrate my birthday. The food was okay. But the service was quite disappointing. We were initially assigned to a table only 1.5 meters away facing the main entrance. Due to the whether, it was very cold and windy so we requested to change the seat. No one else was given that table afterwards. The waiter tended to ignore our table as well. All other tables got there bread and butter (some of them got their second/third rounds already) but we were never given even after we requested that. Finally during the meal, we got the bread and with no apology at all. Also, I ordered Jasmine tea and some how I got a kind of black tea. Not sure how other people like this place but I will not be there again. We are Asian, discrimination? We were definitely treated differently.

After a long day in the vineyards, we were looking forward to some food to balance out the day’s consumption. Although we were seated in the quietest room of the restaurant (thankfully!) it was still too loud to really enjoy the experience ...and thus the food. Maybe if it was the time of year we could have eaten outside, our impression of Angele’s would have been better. Maybe another time...

4 friends win charity auction item w/a $200 Angele gift card. We decided to use it during weekend Napa getaway. Upon arrival 15 mins early for our 7:30 reservation, a polite young hostess informs they're waiting on entire room to pay & will seat us as soon as an opening's available & invites us to wait at entry or bar- No waiting area except 2 occupied seats. Scan bar area, it's packed 2 rows deep & standing room only; to an uncomfortable level. Tried to be courteous & move to the side to unblock frt door & allow staff to pass thru their only route, but then we were blocking kitchen. We moved back to front desk. Another hostess, the older of the two & obviously "manager in charge" based on her demeanor, approached the desk & asked if we had been helped. I told her we had & thanked her. A minute later, she asked for name on our reserv. & informed me that we were "early"-at now-7 min to "R"- (Uh, should we be late?)-she commanded we wait in bar area. I politely inquired how one might do that? Her response -"there's a standing bar all along that side of the dining room". Scan bar again, note no one has moved & notice we would be standing over dining tables of other patrons by doing this, um, rude! Didn't move, & obviously annoyed her! Poor layout not our fault- Bad 1st impression, ma'am, reflected in rating! Get to table 7:35& had the most fabulous, lovely dinner served by great, attentive staff! Every course served was superb! All agreed FR Onion Soup was best we ever tasted & entrees were delicious. TIPS: Ask waiter if anything comes w/entrée bec menu doesn't mention- ordered extra veggies & French fries (HUGE) but yummy sautéed veg on plate made extras unnecessary. Our GC covered about 1/2 bill for 4; pricey. We brought wine & there's a $25 Corkage Fee, but by buying a $50 bottle, they waived fee & we had more wine! Arrive exactly on time to avoid wait-avoid Sat night! Request table opposite bar side. Enjoy the wonderful meal!

If you're browsing OpenTable, trying to decide between restaurants.... Should it be Bouchon, should it be Morimoto... No, it should be Angele.

Angele was excellent as always. My daughter and I love to go there especially for lunch. It is just a delightful bistro and we can pretend we are in Paris, one of our favorite cities for bistro lunches. We had a delicious omelette with ham, gruyere, spinach and chanterelles and a bistro sandwich with warm bread and saucisson sec paired with delicious beer. Such fun.

Upon arrival the person at the desk was less than friendly. He turned out to be our waiter, and the personality didn't improve. After noticing many other wait staff taking bread to other tables we asked for some. After some time he brought the bread, told us more was in the oven and would bring it out. Never happened. Then the waiter disappeared and we had to find someone else to take our payment. The name of the waiter was on the receipt but we are not divulging it in case he was having strong personal problems that day. We periodically try Angele and would have to say it is not worth the price.

My best friend and I have been meeting once or twice a year at Angele for the past decade. It is a pleasure to dine at this casual, French country restaurant. Today, the sweetbreads with mushrooms we’re fabulous, the Salad Lyonaisse(frisée, lentils and a poached egg) was very good, and the sole meunière was perfection - the vegetables on the plate were done just right and tasted like they were picked this morning. We finished our meal with the bourbon bread pudding, which was lovely. Our waiter was attentive and helpful. Angele reminds me of Provence, and the great meals my husband and I had in France.

The restaurant is lovely. Open Table's star rating is way off in terms of cost. They rated it with 2 stars which in mind estimation means reasonably priced. I spent $250 on a dinner for two. That is very expensive and should be rated as such.

Let down after many visits. Service was okay as was food. Pushed to the bar to order drinks then seated right next to the bar despite another table coming in after and receiving a good table, away from kitchen view. A table of Somms received all the attention...

We had a lovely lunch to celebrate a friend's birthday. Two reasons for the 4 stars vs 5 ...
While the servers were attentive, we had to remind them 3 times about the latte my friend ordered. And I requested a little birthday something for my friend, and was disappointed to have a different server bring out a small dish of ice-cream with a wafer and a candle..and no one sang Happy Birthday and the server served me the ice cream. Other restaurants usually have a few servers come out and sing... oh well. Suggestion .... I think better, more consistent service can be provided if a server is assigned to specific tables instead of having several servers handle all the tables outside. It was confusing for me, and based not he 2 comments I made earlier, obviously confusing for them.

If I've said it once, I've said it 1000 times. Angele is the BEST restaurant in Napa. And I've never had to eat my words. When we sit down we know our entire meal is going to be a savory pleasure.

In recent years Angele has upped the ante with vegetables from their own gardens, and our last visit saw a reformatted wine menu and some wonderful new selections.

Each member of the Angele staff, whether bar, service, host... they are all tops and will all take any extra time to help you.

My advice... don't rush... enjoy every bite... come back often.
