Cindy's Backstreet Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
Cindy's was the second stop on our vacation in Napa Valley and after a very disappointing first dinner the night before at Farmstead, Cindy's followed right along with that theme. We looked forward to this for quite a while and it definitely did not live up to the expectation. Service was fine, nothing special, and even the appetizers were decent. The peach and burrata thing everyone's got going on is getting tired. My meatloaf, which came recommended as one of their staple dishes, came out stone cold and looked like a frozen dinner. My cousin's "short ribs" was nothing more than a cheap piece of flank steak. The other two dishes, the rabbit tostada and the pork special, were good. $350 later for 4 people just didn't quite make a great impression. I'll just keep it to her other restaurant, Mustards.
We live in Minnesota but visit the Napa Valley often. CBK is a must for us whenever we are in the area. The food is always creative, fresh and delicious and the service is excellent. There is good menu of wines to choose from - on a previous visit the recommendation of our server turned us on to our favorite winery in the region. Try it - you'll be glad you did!
Coming back to Cindy's for the second time, we found that the food was still excellent. I was celebrating my birthday, which even though we informed them when we made the reservation, and my friend mentioned it when we checked in, they did not acknowledge. So don't bother asking for this. Had a special that night which was fried chicken with a hot and spicy sauce on it. It was amazing. My husband had the meatloaf and he said it was great. Had a nice cocktail before dinner and brought a bottle of wine. Very efficient service. Will definitely be coming back.
We had a wonderful evening, that started with the mushroom toast. An absolute perfect starter. We had The halibut and ribeye for our main course. Both done to perfection. The service was attentive and friendly. We asked several questions and our server was knowledgeable and helpful. We will go here again when we return to Napa Valley!!
This is a great location for a bit more quiet meal off of Main Street. Mostly indoor dining spaced comfortably within. The paquillos is quite a small app but very delicious. The mole bed was just enough heat and sweet with the pepper. My boyfriend LOVED the meatloaf meal. Unexpected minced carrots added to the loaf gave it a fun crunch! The rabbit tostada was delicious as well! A filling meal that felt like just enough and didn't over do it. The rabbit was very tender.
The service was good, and the food was great although the duck burger was ok. It was a bit dry and not as good as the regular burger with all the regular lettuce, tomatoes, etc. added Too bad....but my muscles were out of this world and the basic salad was wonderful and falloff surprises.
NEEDS to immediately inventory wine cellar and update wine list. We odered 2 differnt bottles of wine from extensive list only to be disappointed. They had to apologize for not having either of the two bottles we were anticipating enjoying. Gave them 3 additional options, fine, a bottle delivered.
Quickly led to our table by friendly staff. Group of six and all enjoyed their meals.
The fried chicken of the day was 'korean' with kimchi fried rice and veggies. The chicken flavours were out of this world.
This is one restaurant we return to every time we are in Napa.
