We enjoyed our server but unfortunately service for beverages was very slow. We prefer to enjoy our drinks with maybe an appetizer, in this case the delicious bread/cheese but the drinks never arrived. The salad was served before we got our drinks. Not the way it should be. The same happened with coffee, it should arrive before dessert, but alas it did not. We appreciated the heaters and basically all was good. We would return when the menu appeals.

Hopefully we can entice you back with one of our future menus, and we will be sure to make it right the next time. BTW, we are moving indoors into our expansive open atrium with Grove Winter Garden starting November 4th.

We dined on Wed pasta meal. Started with antipastpo platter it was delightful with a glass of bubbly. The pasta was fantastic with 3 different variations. No charge for corkage on first wine bottle. The pleasant ending dessert was refreshing after a heavier pasta meal. Outdoor seating was lovely and very good playlist and music sound just right. Definitely we will be back!!!

Thank you for the lovely feedback. So pleased that you enjoyed our Concerto di Pasta and the outdoor garden. I wanted to let you know that we will be recreating the outdoor garden inside our expansive atrium--lots of open space and high ceiling for safe indoor dining. So join us for Grove Winter Garden and it will kick off with what else--Concerto di Pasta on Wednesday November 4. (And, we promise same great playlist :)

Wednesday night is always pasta night. Three different pastas each week. The pastas are not only excellent, the portions are large and you will probably end up taking some home.
It is also "free corkage" night.
We plan to be a Wednesday night regular.

Same menu with our Winter Garden Supper, weekend brunch, and of course, Wednesday Concerto di Pasta.

Went for brunch and the outdoor setting was beautiful. We ordered eggs Benedict and French toast, as part of the prix fixe menu, and cherry scones and bacon on the side. The prix fixe menu included a very nice fruit salad with yogurt and granola sprinkled on top. The fruit salad came out first and was super fresh and delicious. Before we were even halfway through with the fruit salad, someone brought out the bacon - all by itself. Then someone else brought out our main dishes - before we had finished with the fruit salad. Because the table was so small, there was nowhere to put the fruit salad plates. So we asked them to take them away. When we had almost finished our main dishes, we realized that we had never received our cherry scones. We asked our server and she apologized and brought them out a few minutes later - after we completed our meal. The cherry scones were delicious - probably the best part of the meal! We gobbled them up, along with the remaining fruit salad. When we received our bill, we found out we had been charged for four bellinis that the people at the table next to us had. It took forever to get it sorted out, so we asked to speak with the manager. He was nice and gave us his card in case there was an issue getting the credit back for the four bellinis on our credit card. I looked at my credit card balance today and it looks like I will be giving him a call because the higher charge has not been corrected yet!

My recommendation to the staff would be 1) to not rush the dishes to the table (let me finish my fruit salad before you bring out my main meal, 2) clear old dishes away from the table so there is someplace to put the new dishes (we had to ask several times for them to take away our dirty dishes), and 3) make sure the bill you give to guest is correct (the one mistake of overcharging us for the four bellinis held us up, as well as the other table that actually had the bellinis and was undercharged.)

We had the prix fixe meal. It was really beautiful. We also ordered the broiled oysters as an add-on. Very good.

The food was very good, but not pretentious. The duck was cooked perfectly, the rice was great. All it needed was more veggies and it would have been perfect.

The desert was fabulous!

Love that it is on the campus of COPIA surrounded by the garden!!! Got to walk through. Able to eat my salad in peace. During dinner, bees keep swarming over my dish and around me. Eeek! Packed it to go and also got my dessert boxed! Staff was apologetic and offered me alternative seating. No thank you, I’m done!!!

We sat outside quite a distance from everyone in the farm/garden area. Weather was perfect and truly a lovely environment. Staff was attentive enough we never felt deserted. Brunch was excellent. The fresh fruit in the fruit bowl was particularly outstanding as the fruit came from their garden and everything tasted so fresh, sweet and just perfect. The scones were rich and yummy. Chicken and waffles were delicious though 2 people could have shared one since we ordered too many sides so ended up taking chicken home which was still wonderful for dinner.

I have been to The CIA at Copia a number of times. My experience has always been very good. However, this time they dropped the ball. The add-on mussels were wonderful, but the celery salad and the chicken main course, left a lot to be desired. Neither had much flavor, and proven to be a real downer. While the pricing is a great deal higher than most other good restaurants, the value of this meal was very low. While I may return, it will be a while before I do so.......at least, not until they get their act together again.

I put in the notes this is for my mother’s birthday. Not a single time did anyone mention anything from the staff. Your staff handed us a stack of plates instead of setting them. I’m not a trained chef but there was nothing special with your set menu. I’ve never had such horrible service in my life. We only spent 30 minutes there because of how horrible the service was. I definitely will not return to this place. Outside temp water instead of ice water. The cafe at Greystone is by far a much better place. I’ve already put my review on Yelp and will copy and paste onto Google. This establishment sucks.

Went for brunch on Saturday. Very disappointed that they didn't have chicken and waffles. Host noted when we were seated that that dish tends to run out fast. Hmmm...then why don't they make more? Poor management is the only explanation I could come up with. The patio was very pleasant, as was the wait staff. The music playing, however, was at times very unpleasant - like a bad cocktail lounge soundtrack. Chilaquiles, French toast, yogurt and fruit were all good, but not outstanding. Honestly, with all the options in Napa, we felt like we could have eaten just as well for less $$ elsewhere.
