    The menu has changed with a few new things. Had a really great dinner, and the quality is top notch. We loved the lamb “lollipops,” the hand made pappardelle, and the dry-aged steak.

    Food was wonderful but service was lacking, time to get our food was way too long. Had a party of 7 and they couldn’t split the bill, leaving us to figure out payment. Ultimately food was great just didn’t have the best experience.

    Not sure where to start honestly… We were seated at the smallest two top possible and next to a group of extremely loud couples. Which was fine they were enjoying themselves. They did say some fairly offensive things but to each their own. It started off fine. We received our first course very quickly and it was the best part of the evening. We waited about 23 minutes between our first course and second course. My guest had to drink my water because his was never filled. We had to prompt our server about our salad course. It arrived. Water still not filled. Our entrees arrived. I immediately cut into my petite filet because I knew it wasn’t medium rare just by the look. It was medium and almost leaning medium well. Server took it away to prepare a new one. My lobster tail was so chewy I had to spit it into my napkin. My server told me to use the butter because that is what it is for… Sir. No amount of butter can correct an over cooked lobster. He also said in an extremely condescending tone. I never received a refill on my soft drink or water. The manager came over with a new steak which was cooked perfectly and quite delicious. But at this point I was over the experience. Flew to Napa to celebrate my birthday and this wasn’t any better than a night out at Longhorn or Outback. To make matters worse, I am assuming the next group that sat near us were friends of our server because when he was talking to us they loudly tried to get his attention. For the price point, I expected much more. The first course was delicious and my cocktail was balanced and fresh. For the cost of the surf and turf whoever on the line that prepared it should receive corrective action. Filet over cooked, lobster over cooked. It just missed the mark from a steak house. Never again. As well it wasn’t a busy night volume wise at all. Perhaps my expectations were too high. I am a regional VP of Operations for a major upscale restaurant group. I pray no guest of my mine has this experience.

    The food, for the price, was not worth it. The cut of filet mignon that I got was cooked perfectly but not a top quality cut of beef. The waiter was kind and friendly, but slow at first. He certainly improved over the course of the meal. I would say good not great and to go somewhere else for the prices charged.

    Zack and the staff were wonderfully helpful and attentive. It’s a steak house so that’s the menu. There is variety for fish and veg. Outstanding presentation, service and preparation. We had a special porterhouse for two and it was spectacular. We’ll be back.

    First time dining there. From the rolls, Caesar salad, ribeye steak, and au gratin potatoes, food was great. Twice baked potato was rather small for the price. Chocolate cake was great.

    Came to the Napa Charlie Palmer for my birthday dinner. We have eaten at the Reno,NV location and really enjoyed it. Service was fine. The food was mediocre. Ordered the tomahawk for my husband and I to share. It was chewy and flavorless. We also had the asparagus and twice baked mashed potato for our sides. The potato was nothing spectacular and the asparagus was also bland. The best part was my cocktail which was a Cadillac margarita. Overall I was disappointed and most likely not return.

    Lame. Server was nice t but entire meal was tasteless. $80 steak was like a coffee shop steak. Twucecbeaked potatoes is frozen in quality. AND no soup, no duck( drove 1.5 hrs). Super disappointed and dissatisfied. CP franchise needs to rise to the occasion. Poor quality and lack of creativity!

    Great food. Unbelievably bad service with a 30 minute wait to order food as the “waiter likes to talk to certain guests for a long time “ and so was therefore too busy to take our order. Finally managed to get someone else to take our order and the main waiter never bothered coming to our table throughout our meal. Pathetic attitude but limited to the narrow minded people serving at the restaurant and should in no way be a reflection of the service at the Archer hotel which is great.

    I made a reservation at Charlie Palmer on Open Table a couple weeks prior to visiting Napa. It was one of a few places that allowed me to book online for a party of 8. The food and service ended up being good, but not great. With so many other amazing choices in Napa, I wouldn’t eat there again.

    Wife and I went on a Sunday. I surprised her with a place that is supposed to be well know for her favorite drink, a lemon drop, and we both are glad we went. We ate family style with the ricotta gnocchi, creamed spinach and a perfectly cooked med rare ribeye. Oh.. we also got the yellow tale poke and the lamb lollipops. Finished with the lemon pot de crème and the chocolate cake. EVERYTHING was delicious. The service was great, our waitress tended to our needs, but also gave us our space to relax and enjoy each other. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and will definitely return. I recommend this restaurant for everyone.
