Our go to restaurant in Napa, at least once a month! Knew right away there must be a new chef! The food was even better than usual! The escargot were perfect!
Just like downtown Paris!
Thank you Chef! This review means a lot us and the chef was very excited to read this as well. We look forward to your next visit with us. Merci! Angèle Family
Steak tartare outside in an inviting environment— great. So so omelette. Good accompanying salad. Poor and expensive glass of Gigondas. Music way too loud but they turned it down on request. Friends’ enjoyed their meals. Attentive service.
Thank you for taking the time to write us your thoughts. We apologize that you didn’t care for certain items. We try our best to make sure everything is perfect. We look forward to your next visit Thank you again Angèle Family

Hello and thank you for your kind words. We truly appreciate it. We look forward to your next visit with us Angele Team
Always a great experience - the food is on point, service is excellent, setting is beautiful. One of our very favorite restaurant in Napa!
Thank you for your lovely review. We truly appreciate it. We look forward to your next visit. Angele Team
I had dined at Angele previously. I made my reservation online for my mother and myself. When I showed up I was curtly greeted by a male who asked "Can I help you?" I replied happily: "Yes, lunch for two." He responded curtly again: "Do you have a reservation?" I gave him my name and that we would like to eat indoors. It was a beautiful day but my mother is eighty and didn't want to eat outdoors. The inside was empty. A female waitress showed us to a seat. It took her a long time to return and assist us. She never gave us her name. She was not as, bordering on rude, as the man had been but was not friendly either. I was still happy being with my mom and didn't take notice of the attitude until our food took fifty minutes to come while people who had arrived after us were getting their food. Our waitress and the man who initially greeted us where talking, laughing and even sitting at the table with some of the patrons. That was when I noticed the rudeness we were receiving was intentional. Finally, the food arrived. We ate undisturbed but when I went to ask the waitress a question as she was walking by she dismissed my attempt and went to another table and held conversation there where she laughed and ignored us. When she finished she came back to see what I wanted. I paid in cash and wish I had not given a tip. The attitude was most unpleasant.
We are very sorry to read this review and know that anyone was made to feel less than welcome. We try very hard to stress to our staff to always be welcoming to every guest. Please know we will make sure to talk to all of our staff about the importance of making each guest feel heard and as important as every other guest. We truly apologize that your experience was not what it should be and hope that you will give us another try to show you what a great experience you can have.
Angele was recommended to us by several people in the valley. We had the salad, steak tartare and escargot to share. The escargot were delicious. The steak tartare was fine but a little heavy on the capers. Finally the greens were just lettuce with dressing and I believe a smear of ricotta underneath. It was ok.
For dinner we shared the sea bass and a side of Mac and cheese. The sea bass had great flavors and the green beans and sauce it sat on were very good. Unfortunately the fish was overcooked. Not the end of the world. We ate it. The Mac and cheese was delicious. Super rich so only ate half the small portion that was served.
Finally we had the apple galette for dessert. It was good but not mind blowing. The overall atmosphere was beautiful at night. Service was very good as well.
Thank you for the four stars and for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are sorry to hear about the sea bass as we would have wanted to fix it for you. As well we will make sure that Chef see your constructive comments so he can adjust anything necessary. We do hope you will come in and give us another try to earn five stars.
pretty disappointing to be honest. beautiful restaurant but slow service. Asked for things several times. Food was overpriced and underwhelming. Lot more places to go to in Napa worthy of people's time.
Thank you Jesse for sharing your thoughts with us. We are sorry to see that you did not enjoy the experience. We take every review to heart so we can make any changes necessary. Were hope you will be open to giving us another try to show you what a great experience you can have with us.
This was our third visit and it will be our last.
We arrived early and hoped to be able to relax and have a drink and a couple bottles of wine. That would not be the case at all. The lady manager sat us and since our waiter Jeff was so busy I asked if she could order appetizers for us. "Nope I can not. Your waiter will take your complete order so as to help our kitchen. We promise pace out your courses and not stack food on your table." lol. famous last words.
We had not quite finished our appetizers when Jeff appeared to clean up the bread plates. My wife says to Jeff. We want to take a short break now before the next course. He says, You must be joking and there comes our next course.
Thankfully Napa Valley has many other dining options. We certainly prefer a restaurant that will not make us feel like we have to eat fast and get out. It would have been nice to drink 2-3 bottles of wine instead of 1.
Hello and thank you for taking the time to write your thoughts down. Although we apologize that this was your experience. Geoff has read this and is truly sorry for your experience. We do not want anyone to feel rushed. We do try and take full orders on weekends only to better your experience. I am sorry if that was not felt. Again we apologize and hope you come dine with us again Best Regards, Angèle Family
It’s one of our favorite go to restaurants in Napa. The setting is beautiful right by the river. The service is good and food is also very tasty! The outside patio is quite nice…
Thank you for the five stars and the great review. We are honored to be one of your top choices in Napa. There is a lot of great competition so we truly appreciate you saying this. We are so pleased to see you had another good experience and hope to see you in again soon.
You can't beat the food & ambiance while sitting outside on Angele's patio on a sunny California day.
Thank you Steve for the five stars and great review. The Patio is a great place to dine on a nice day. We all need to make sure to enjoy as many as we can. We appreciate you taking the time to share this and hope we see you in again soon.
We were staying at The Napa River Inn for the week. We had eaten at Angèle before and really enjoyed the experience. This time, we found it very noisy (energetic, Yes, but way to noisy for us). We would have eaten there again later in the week but elected not to because of the noise. There are lots of other choices in Napa close to the hotel.
Thank you Chuck for the four stars and for sharing your experience. When the restaurant is busy it can be a little loud. There are a few tables that are quite than others, so we hope on your next trip you will let us know so we can help make the experience better for you.
Excellent food, better service. Grab a signature drink Cigs n Coffee and enjoy the ambiance.
Thank you for the great review. So happy to see you enjoyed the cigarettes and coffee cocktail. It is defiantly a winner. We really appreciate you taking the time to share your experience. We hope we can get a chance to see you in again soon.
Food, service and environment was great. Would definitely go there again if in Napa
Thank you James for the five stars and great review. We really appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts with us. We are so happy you had a good anniversary dinner. We hope to see you in again soon.
Amazing dinner! Atmosphere, food, service all amazing. House made tonic an extra bonus.
Thank you for the five stars and the nice review. We truly appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts and expoerinace with us. So happy you enjoyed the house made tonic, we feel it is great touch. Hopefully we will be able to see you again soon.
Wonderful, local bistro with good food, great service and pleasant ambiance. Could use a few more choices for the main course, but all items on the current menu are delicious. Angele remains one of our go-to spots for taking out of town visitors.
Thank you for the great review and four stars. We will defiantly relay comments to chef. We so appreciate being done of your choice here in Napa. We look forward to seeing you again soon.
Good food but more expensive than past visits
Thank you for the four star review. we appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts and experience. We will defiantly take a look at the pricing and try and adjust where we can. We do hope to see you again soon.
Went here on the recommendation of three different people. Food was okay, but nothing special. We had the steak and the gnocchi. The specialty cocktails were particularly good
Prices were very Napa. I wouldn’t go here again unless it was to try the burger at the bar
Thank you Cynthia for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are sorry to see you did not enjoy the food as much as we hope you would. We will make sure to look at your comment and address anything we can. We hope that you will give us another try to show you what a great meal you can have.
Ambience, food and wine were top shelf.
Perfect spot for a 50 year reunion with college mates
Thank you Chris for the five star review and for sharing your thoughts. We are so glad to see that the expoerinace was good. We hope to be able to see you in again soon.
We celebrated selling our house and buying a new house with our real estate agent. Angèle is our go-to restaurant for celebrations! The food and service are consistently great and the ambience is soothing. Also, they make excellent cocktails!
Thank you Stephen for taking the time to write this great review. We are so excited for you new chapter. Thank you for thinking of us to celebrate. We appreciate you sharing everything with us and hope to be able to see you again soon.
We were staying at the Napa River Inn, and had observed the restaurant on previous trips, though hadn't hadn't had the chance to dine there, only a late night cocktail at the bar. The space looked pretty cool, and there was a discernable vibe, so noted it for a dinner date--whcih we had on Sunday before taking in a show at the Uptown Theatre. Great dinner........oysters, branzino and sea bass
We love it always have a wonderful time when we visit and I try to suggest Angele whenever I can....
Thank you Franco for the five stars and lovely review. We truly appreciate you taking the time to share this. We look forward to seeing you on your next visit.
Hit and miss here. The deviled egg appetizer with truffles were overpriced for two eggs with truffles that didn't have any flavor and were lightly sprinkled over the eggs. . the steak tartare was good ( hard to ruin raw meat!). Steak frites were flavorful, but the steak a bit chewy The gnocchi were nicely done and had a good flavor. Overall, a nice restaurant, but not our favorite.
Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with us. We are sorry to see that you did not enjoy everything. We will defiantly make sure that Chef hears your comments so we can make any adjustments need. We hope you will give us another try to show you what a great meal you can have with us.
Beautiful setting, excellent food and friendly service! Angele is one of our new favorites!
Thank you for such a nice review. We are so honored to be one of your new favorites! We truly appreciate you taking the time to share this. We can't wait to see you on your next visit.
Nice place looks like an old French restaurant. Most likely will not go back
Thank you Dano for the four star review. We are glad to see you enjoyed your meal here and are sorry you will not be back. We are a french restaurant so we are glad to see that you could see that. We appreciate you taking the time to share your thoughts.
After a great day of wine tasting in Napa, this was a pleasant surprise to eat at for dinner. The restaurant is tucked away in the quaint, historic Main Street of Napa proper. We started with the Pâté de Campagne which was a bit chunky, but had great flavor. The steak frites with Bordelaise sauce was done perfectly. Also enjoyed by the table were the Moules Frites, Steak Tartare, Seared Liberty Duck Breast and roasted chicken.
Thank you for the four star review and for sharing your experience. We are pleased to see that you enjoyed most everything you had with us. We do hope to get a chance to see you in again.
Friendly atmosphere and wonderful food
Thank you for the five stars and the nice review. We appreciate you taking the time to share this. We are happy to see you enjoyed the experience and hope to get a chance to see you in again soon.
Excellent service and ambiance!
Hello Lauren, thank you for the five stars and great comments., We truly appreciate you taking the time to share this with us. We are very happy to see you enjoyed the experience so much. We hope to be able to see you in again soon.
We've been there many times. When we arrived on time for our 7PM reservation, I observed three empty tables for two in the patio area. I was shocked when told we would be expected to eat and leave within one hour!!! Waiter reinforced this by requiring we order appetizers and entrees concurrently.
Thank you for taking the time to share. We apologize you did not enjoy the overall experience. That evening we had a very large group coming that required all tables on the patio. We apologize if we were unclear about this and the reasoning. We did have lovely tables inside available and again apologize if that was not made clear. It is however our policy to take full orders on busy weekends. This is not to inform any type of time limit, but to help insure a smooth service on busy nights.
My wife and I dined here for the first time on our anniversary a few days ago. We are so glad we picked Angèle for our special occasion meal! They welcomed us and wished us a Happy Anniversary with a glass of sparkling wine. Everything we ordered was delicious and cooked to PERFECTION. The service was attentive without being intrusive, the patio location overlooking the river was fantastic, and the music selection was appropriate in both tone and volume for a nice meal. We are sorry that we didn't find this restaurant sooner, but we will definitely be back!
Thank you for such a lovely review. We are so happy you had a good anniversary with us. We truly appreciate you taking the time to share all this with us and others. We hope we will get a chance to see you the next time you are in Napa.
Great location, food was excellent. Nicoise and Croque Monsieur are standouts and the french fries are great. Right on the Napa River with nice outdoor seating.
Thank you Joyce for the great review. We are so happy to read you enjoyed your lunch and appreciate you sharing. We hope to get a chance to see you in again soon.
