We went on a Sunday and was great to sit outside on a nice summer night. I think the outdoor seating (and the room that opens to the outside) is livelier than sitting inside (which seemed darker and quieter). The wine list is terrific, food was great, service was solid -- what more could you ask for.
Food quality was superb. We finished every last drop (and I almost licked my plate clean). The wines were delicious and really paired well with the food. This restaurant knows what they are doing. Highly recommend!
The food and service was excellent. Thank you!
Keep it coming, Compline crew! Great food and wine served by knowledgeable and friendly staff. Duck fat fries are addictive, the burger was delicious and messy and the salmon fresh and tasty. So pleased to have this addition to downtown Napa dining,
Getting together with old friends.
Wonderful service from front of house to waitstaff. Everyone just seemed very knowledgeable, friendly & happy to be there. Food was fantastic & they have a great wine list with some unique finds.
Interesting concept on Sundays--they do a blind tasting wine flight. Food is very good. Burger was outstanding.
Service was great, food was good. While they had a ton of wine, the wines by the glass (and the overall choices in general) were not satisfactory to me. Please note that there were a lot of choices and I’m picky. I would have liked to have seen more local wines as ‘glass of wine’ choices (specifically for me, Chardonnay). Again, this is just my preference. The staff, the food and service were all top notch.
This was a great find among the many tasting rooms on First St in Napa. We had the duck and the hangar steak - both were absolutely fabulous. The modest sized wine list was interesting, but an eclectic mix of ghastly priced, acclaimed high end wines mixed with niche vintages that were high priced, but at least comparatively approachable to justify the leap of faith for something never tried. It’s pretty evident how the Compline margins are constructed. The service was good, but sporadic which hardly mattered given the table we had on a beautiful evening on the plaza outside.
Phenomenal meal, excellent service, wonderful wine selection. One of our new favorite restaurants and our waiter Caleb was spot on in terms of knowledge and service. It’s a limited menu, but you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu!
We made reservations to have dinner on Thursday night before Bottlerock. There was a band playing on the courtyard, so we figured we would have the best seats for watching the Ethan Tucker Band.
The food didn’t disappoint! The wine was one we’d never heard of, but we loved it so much we ordered two bottles!
The service was a little slow. I don’t think the restaurant was aware that the band was booked at the dinner hour! No matter. Our food was hot when it arrived. Our server was busy, but did check in with us after our first few bites.
Overall, it was a great experience! We will definitely be back! You can’t beat that burger!
And the lamb was like nothing we’d had before!
Compline is a wonderfully welcoming, casual dining spot with a great wine selection and great food. Don't even miss the duck fat fries and, BTW, order all the other snacks and starters just because! The duck breast was tender and nicely rare. The gnocchi was tender and tasty. If you can't decide on any of the other main courses, order the most delicious burger. And definitely save room for the flourless chocolate dessert.
Love this new addition to dining in downtown Napa!
Lauren the host is great, she is so friendly and accommodating. Kaleb with a “K” was excellent as our server. Highly recommend very one in our group of 6 enjoyed their dinner.
Relaxed atmosphere and good food made for a great evening. Wine list is varied and includes excellent choices from both California and the Old World. Would definitely recommend it for a meal.
Visited Compline with my spouse and adult child for lunch. We’re total foodies. Menu more limited than dinner menu. Food was decent but portions were small. My daughter ordered the mushroom gnocchi. It was tasty but didn’t satiate her. My spouse had the duck confit salad. Had to hunt for the duck (pun intended). I had the veggie salad. Decent. Overall the price didn’t match the value. No rush to return.
Very nice place. Food was a delight and the wine list was great!
Nice spot sort of hidden in Downtown Napa but near the Charlie Palmer Steak House in then new Archer Hotel. They have a nice selection of wines by the bottle at reasonable prices which you can purchase to take home with you or enjoy with your meal while dining there. They do charge what I feel is an excessive $15 corkage fee if you purchase one of their bottle offerings. $10 or < less would be more reasonable. Food menu is limited with its offerings but the quality was nice. Nice lounge area with couches which opens up to an outdoor seating area creates a neat vibe. Wish they had some fire pits to add to the ambiance of that space.
Best French fries ever. Burger and gnocchi also excellent. Great wines by the glass
My wife and I had burgers and duck fries for lunch - the perfect base for an afternoon of wine-tasting. Our meal was awesome. An excellent wine list, as well.
If you find yourself in or near downtown Napa, Compline is a no-brainer.
Seven of us celebrated mothers’ Day there. Our appetizers and entrees were delicious. Meat and fowl tender and well sauced. Gnocchi good but nothing special, rhubarb cake delicious and moist. Butterscotch pudding disappointing. It was a bland vanilla custard with grainy chocolate. The management did comp us to one after I complained, which was very nice and unexpected, Not enough wait staff. Our waiter was pleasant and did as much as he could, but long waits for requests because he was overly busy.
Almost everything outstanding. Had to wait for our reservation but staff went above and beyond to accommodate. Only negative was very small portions on our pasta main course
We had very good service and attention by our server who was also the pastry chef. We were offered a dessert, although we didn’t want one, to showcase her talents. We will be back and get dessert next time.
Food was extraordinary. We were able to linger and never felt rushed. Great dinner and wine selection.
We were a little hesitant on going here at first, as we noticed it was a wine bar/wine retailer/restaurant . . . and we have (as we’re sure you do too) many Napa Valley restaurants that we cherish . . . leaving us questioning sacrificing a night (possibly) by trying something new - LOL !!!
Some of our favorites are Bistro Jeanty, Charter Oak, Press and many others in the Napa Valley.
If you look a little closer, you can see that this newer restaurant is owned and operated by the A-Team . . . The owners being a Master Sommelier (Matt Stamp) formally at some place called the French Laundry (LOL) and his business partner Ryan Stetins, a former wine director at Charlie Trotter !!! The Chef (Yancy Windsperger) an alum of Spago (one of our favorites in Beverly Hills) . . . Morimoto and Bazaar by Jose Andres = enough said.
The Liberty Duck Breast with peas, carrots & cassoulet beans ($29) was simply spectacular.
The duck fat fries ($7) . . . think of the exterior being slightly crunchy (almost Panko crusted) with an interior of mashed potato = Crazy Good !!!
Great food ✅ Great service ✅ Great wine ✅ Great stemware ✅ Great ambience, while not being pretentious ✅
A Location that’s a little challenging to find (behind the new hotel) although when you do find it, it’s game on and you’ll be back for sure . . . the new Hot Spot.
Beautifully curated wine list, and fun retail wine section! Every dish was delicious. We had a leisurely romantic dinner, and didn't feel rushed. Every staff member was attentive, and knowledgeable. Artwork is perfect for the space and was great for us wine geeks. Will be back on our next Napa trip for sure!
This is a good restaurant to end your day, relax.....and good service! Good choices of 🍷! We would love to come back!
Amazing. Farm to table freshness! Best hanger steak my husband had ever had, my salmon was melt in the mouth and the broccolini left us wanting more. Top notch wine bar.
Compline is a little hard to find (back in a small plaza off the street behind the Andaz and Archer hotels) but very much worth the effort. Both of our entrees and first courses were excellent, and they have a broad and intriguing wine list.
Compline is terrific ... very creative menu that changes frequently using locally sourced ingredients. Great wine list featuring Napa with a good mix of other regions, well tailored to the cuisine (and at fair prices). Finally, service was outstanding and very knowledgeable (especially about the wine). Wow!
I had a wonderful time at Compline. The atmosphere is modern yet comfortable with many distinct dining areas. Since I was on my own traveling for work, I sat at their wine bar. The service was prompt, friendly and most importantly knowledgeable. I tried a local Syrah paired with a pistachio crusted salmon on a bed of root vegetables and a rutabaga purée. Wow, it was exceptional! Nothing over pretentious or showy, but definitely a heart of class
Following my meal, I was given a full walk through of their wines they sell at the retail shop. Lauren was very knowledgeable about wine and their offerings that paired with my likes.
Overall I was very happy with my experience and would definitely recommend. I’ll certainly be back.
Dinner was somewhat disappointing. The wine list is very good, but the bill can be pretty high when all is said and done.
Fantastic service! Great atmosphere. And both the bottle and by-the-glass list of wines are amazing. Our food was delicious. Will be stopping again on our next Napa trip!
Cool place. Expand the menu or change it regularly. It’s a tad on the small size. A little too long to get the food. Otherwise great. All tasty.
A difficult review to write. If you are 25 years old and want a Napa version of cutting edge/modern this is probably a good choice. However, if you are looking for a quality dining experience and an upscale surrounding this is not for you. The food here is fussy and pretentious. The service is just pretentious.
One good thing is that you will probably leave hungry, no weight gain unless you finish off a very good bowl of duck fat fries.
Excellent food and presentation ; most importantly fantastic wine selection by the glass or bottle. I love the availability of a wide assortment of wines to buy and take home for your personal cellar. Love the modern atmosphere and creative menu selections. Fantastic!
Food was fantastic, server picked the wine for us and it was spot on.
Great food. Friendly staff
I really enjoyed eating at Compline. The mushroom gnocchi was excellent. Also the service was great. I highly recommend Compline.
This place was 'cool'... modern in style and meant for the 30's crowd I think. Loud music, dark decor. The menu, food and service were superb, but I probably won't go back. But try the duck fat fries!
Very knowledgeable staff. We had an extremely well prepared meal. Very nice lounge/outdoor dining area.
