Angèle Restaurant & Bar Ratings and Reviews
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.
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.
Enjoyed a nice cocktail at the bar before our reservation and were then taken to our outdoor table overlooking the Napa River - lovely ambiance! Food was overall very tasty. Service was attentive and appropriate for a middle aged couple on a "date". Would dine here again.
Friendly, knowledgeable servers. Efficient without being overbearing. Food arrived timely and to a perfect temperature. Although the Onion soup was truly outstanding, ours arrived a bit cool below the lucious cheese.
Perhaps some of the best, create preparations for veal sweetbreads I’ve had.
Portion size more than enough
Overall a great evening
