    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.

    We would not recommend this restaurant to anyone. The prices are very high and the food is terrible. We started with the tomato salad. Even though this is July in CA, the tomatoes were inedible. We then had the bone in NY strip steak ($90) which was tough and barely warm. The twice baked potatoes were fine, but the creamed spinach was watery. The only thing good was the wine, and they had a pretty good wine list.

    Our food was just Okay. The steak was dry and undercooked. We did send it back but done very unprofessionally. Ruth Chris would be so much better. Staying at the hotel so that’s why we ate here. Don’t bother.

    Place was dead, food was ruined with the amount of unknown onions and salt. Thankfully our waiter was respectful but there was another waiter who was extremely overwhelming and wouldn’t leave tables alone. Just sat and talked telling them his life stories from the past 40 years. Made our experience very poor on top of pretty poorly prepared meals.

    Excellent food and service. Rather unfortunate space. No ambiance, felt like a super average mid level hotel restaurant adjacent to a sports bar. Linen service would go a long way here. It’s a shame because the food is quite good.

    Charlie Palmer is usually a great place to dine. However, on Mother’s Day 2022, the breakfast was bland and very boring. No special effects for the celebration whatsoever! I will not be returning for breakfast again ☹️

    We are locals and came to Charlie Palmer for Mothers Day brunch. Food was basic and not cheap! They didn’t even have a Mothers Day menu or special cocktail. I had an omelette that was spongy and dry. Jaxx, Sweetie Pies, Model Bakery.. way better breakfast.

    Charlie Palmer's can be counted on to serve great food and provide great service. The wedge salad is one of the best in the Valley. The short rib appetizer was large enough for a mail course and the steaks were perfectly presented. All the sides are good additions to the steaks.

    Went for our anniversary. Seated us at a bad table. The server took 15 minutes to acknowledge us. Noticed other tables, parties with 6 people got a lot of attention. Parties of 6 = more $$ = more tips. Finally got our food. I ordered the whole lobster dinner with a Citrus Beurre Blanc sauce. BLAND! A couple seated next to us about 30 minutes after we ordered our food had the same server - he was very attentive to them and they got their food at the same time we did. Then dessert came - it wasn’t complementary for our anniversary as it was for the birthday boy seated next to us. Doubt we’ll return.

    We had a wonderful waiter, delicious food and a comfortable booth. The only issue we had as did surrounding guests is that one large party had 1 individual that was very loud, obnoxious man who had too much alcohol and all the tables around him were his audience much to everyone's dismay. Some people unfortunately drink too much and become beligerent and don't remember; however everyone else does as it impacted our special dinner.
