Smoked trout was delicious. Duck fat fries are a must. Pork belly was good. Pappardelle was divine!

Food was great, service was attentive. They did not read both the birthday designation on the reservation and the note about celebrating a birthday, as they did not present us with a birthday dessert (we ordered 2 desserts) as they did with the two other tables we observed celebrating birthdays. Overall good experience though. Clean bathrooms and nice outdoor dining space.

We chose Compline after looking at the menu on line. This doesn't do it service--it is much better and we learned that the produce is all organic and locally sourced. And, as well as being good "local partners" to producers, Compline feeds us in a very delicious way.

The wine list, assembled under the aegis of Master Sommelier, Matt Stamp, is nothing short of excellent. Our suggestion is to put yourself in their hands to try some delicious wine with your food.

Do not pass on trying Compline. It is marvelous, yet casual enough to be comfortable.

Food was delicious, but it did take a very long time and they forgot some items from our order. In their defense, it was the end of a busy holiday weekend so we won't hold it against them!

4.00 pm reservations on Saturday, Memorial Day Weekend
The waiter said they were out of all sandwiches except the pork belly. What???
That is basically the entire lunch menu.
Th waiter said “we got wiped out this morning”
I couldn’t make this up. We said “This morning?”
He said “yes”
We got up and left. The whole thing seems very odd and suspicious.

This restaurant is trying to hard to be something that it’s not. It’s been along time since I’ve been so disappointed in the quality and flavor of the food that I had yesterday. I have never had such a bland salad dressing nor such an under cooked main course. There was no imagination in the presentation or ingredients of these dishes. It appears that the chef is either a new graduate of some culinary Academy or perhaps not even that.I left hungry because I could not bear to eat the food and it was clear that the goal of the restaurant was to sell wine, wine glasses and other merchandise. Their menu and food are an afterthought.

Pretty expensive for what you get. We ordered ribeye and it was $125. The cut was fatty and not cooked correctly. It was a party of 4 and they automatically added gratuity which was unusual.

Not sure if our server was having an off night, but the service was very slow with him not taking our drink order for at least 15 minutes after we were seated. Our group was at the restaurant for a total of 2 hours, of which maybe 10 minutes were spent with us actually eating. Multiple dishes that we ordered were not brought out, so we asked for our check after eating our main course. When the check was dropped off, it was incorrect, listing the wrong number of a dish that we actually did get. All of these inconsistencies on their own would have been fine, but combined resulted in a disappointing experience.

The food was very good. Staff was great. I like that they add a 15% gratuity- and notified us so that we didn't add tip without the information (can always add more, but didn't want to add 20% when they already added the 15%). Portions aren't big and everything is served a la carte so it doesn't take long for the price to build per person. We shared one bottle of wine for the table and shared dessert and we still ended up at $100/pp. Not too bad as the food was delicious but we sat outside and it left a lot to be desired, detracting from the overall experience pretty significantly.

This was my 2nd visit, this occasion was for a girls weekend trip. We started with the duck fat fries. They are perfect. Just the right amount of salt and crispness. I got the lamb Ragu again and it was as delicious as ever. Everyone got different dishes so we could share. The Khorosan with fiddle ferns, black cod, and ricotta gnudi were all unique and amazing. Since we’d been wine tasting most of the day, we kept it light and stuck with a local rosé.

The service was great and the ambiance was classy. However the portion size was extremely small for the price. I was surprised that none of the main dishes for dinner had any sides and the protein size itself was small. I don't feel the price was fair for what we received.

Sometimes food takes long to come out. I’ve waited tables before and sometimes you get in the weeds. But the waiter should let the waiting table know. That would have made all the difference in our experience

I was recommended this restaurant from a few Napa locals when I was at Grace’s Table restaurant. The restaurant is located in the back corner of the First Street Napa shopping mall. You will walk up to two large doors and the outdoor seating is on your right. When we walked in, we were surrounded by wine and the bar was straight ahead. The greeter found our lunch reservation and we were seated outside. In a few minutes, we had water and menus with a white wine recommendation. Per the locals recommendation, we needed to order the burger and fries cooked in duck fat. We ordered as instructed and the food arrived in about 15-20 minutes. Once you take your first few bites, you’ll understand why the restaurant is so quiet. The food is so darn good! As I my teeth cut through the bacon and patty, I could feel the juice running down the palms of my hands. I closed my eyes to enjoy the bite because I could tell this was a freshly ground hamburger. Between bites I would grab a few fries and catch my wife’s eyes. Without saying a word, we knew this was a true foodie nirvana moment. Now it is time to wrap this review up. Amazing service, check. Large outdoor seating space, check. Wine expertise, check. Friendly vibe, check. Mind blowing food, check.
