It was everything you would expect from a place of this stature. The staff is amazing, friendly, and attentive. The food is exquisite, not sure what else can be said. Lastly, the ambiance just capped the entire experience off.

Good ambiance, very good cocktails and wine. Our entrees were delayed and the server gifted us some fries while we waited, a nice touch. Our fish entrees were good but didn’t rank as a peak dining experience. We would probably go back if we were in the area again.

My steak was good, loved the aju sauce I ordered with it! Salad was fresh, but wished there were more varieties available. Not too many options for gluten-free folks or dairy free. I think it was pricey for what you got.

This was my first time at Charlie Palmer Steak, Napa. The service was amazing and the food was excellent. The atmosphere was cozy and warm, and the noise level was next to none. It was a wonderful experience.

We had high hopes for this place. When we arrived the decor and atmosphere was wonderful. We knew the place was pricey however when reading through the reviews we did not mind the expected prices. Well from the appetizer to the entry’s the food was shall I say was disappointing at best. My daughter ordered the 21 day dry aged bone in NY strip which you should be so tender you should be able to cut it with your fork. Well It wasn’t. She even asked for a new knife because she couldn’t cut it. My rib eye was extra fatty with lots of muscle and very salty as was my wife’s fillet. The sides which are all À la cart were also disappointing. The appetizer oysters on the half shell were terrible. I don’t mind paying for good food and drinks but a bill of $588 for 3 people for terrible food really makes me fume. I don’t recommend this restaurant at all. Do not go here you will be let down and have an empty wallet to boot.

Overall great experience. Steaks are fantastic and our server was wonderful. I give 4 stars, (instead of 5), for two reasons. First, kitchen response time was very slow (this was at 830pm.) Second, price was expected to be high end, but felt steaks were a bit over priced, even though excellent quality.

Went here for my Birthday with my wife. I spent sometime choosing where to go for a great streak experience. I ordered the A5 Wagyu steak as a treat for $125 and at least 1/3 of this premium piece of meat was inedible because of the fat. I have had A5 wagyu 5X and this was the only time it did not melt in my mouth. I’m not a complainer so I said nothing. Service was beyond expectations and she did a hell of a job! Management should work on QC!

Great dinner! Fabulous menu options! Service was a little slow at first but looked like the wait staff team all participated. (Seems staffing in all restaurants are still challenged thus far….but their crew did a fabulous job!)

Definitely felt like they wanted us to leave. We would have had a drink it two or lingered over dessert. Not an option. The staff was fraternizing and ignoring the customers. Yes, it was a Sunday, but we were still in on vacation and expected decent service.

The server was great. He was very sweet and kind. The food as good. I do have to say that I wasn’t too keen of receiving my food about 45 minutes to an hour later after my order was taken. I was hangry.

Saturday night anniversary. Restaurant was not busy but it took over a hour for our food to arrive and waitress disappeared on us. We couldn’t even get a second drink and had to ask hostess for refills. Would not recommend to anyone.

We were fortunate to find a reservation on a Friday evening at our preferred time - a rarity in Napa these days. Once at the restaurant we enjoyed impeccable service, a delicious meal (generous portions) and a welcoming atmosphere. We will be back!

First and last visit...overrated restaurant for the price, quality of the food and ambiance. I ordered peas risotto, added scallops. I was very disappointed. Scallops were overdone & chewy and the risotto was very salty. My friend ordered a petit ribeye (2oz). It was plated on a large white plate, that's it! (lack of presentation). The server was friendly but did not offer any recommendations of house specialties of main dishes or wine/drinks.
