We eat at Hurley’s with relative frequency and this was one of the best experiences we’ve had. Chefs specials are always a treat but today’s menu was exceptional.
It was a little loud and service was a little slower than our past several visits, but it was a Saturday night, so that probably affected everything. The food, as always, was excellent and we had a nice time!
We eat there often, the food has always been excellent
Wow - where to begin. Came for my daughter’s birthday. Waiter never came back to the table after we ordered our entree to see if we wanted a glass of wine with our meal. I flagged down three different employees asking them for a glass of wine or if they could send our waiter over. No one came. We honestly thought - well he must be on a break.
Finally, as we were almost finished with our meal he came over to offer wine (remember this is Napa Valley). When I ordered coffee it was served so cold the cream wouldn’t mix into it. When I let an employee know she brought out another cup but told me to be careful because she had just put it in the microwave (and indeed- it tasted like coffee that had been sitting around for hours and microwaved).
For this far from satisfactory service they added a gratuity because we were a “party over six” (although four were children) but didn’t tell us they had done that.
I spoke with a man who claimed to be the owner (but never shared his name) about my concerns. He told me that my concerns were “way out there”. Way out there to want to order a glass of wine with my meal in Napa Valley??? Way out there to expect coffee to be warm??? He also told me that (because I was a women) that I “sound like a person who is too sensitive.”
Needless to say - will never eat there again or recommend it to anyone visiting the Valley (they would probably like a glass of wine with their meals .....)
If you are a woman beware—— you may be found too “sensitive” about the bad service offered here.
Excellent food as usual. My only complaint was the portion size of the wild boar. It was quite small. I get it just about every time and it’s usually bigger.
We had a great experience! The food was fantastic and our service was amazing! We will be back!
When dining in Yountville, you have plenty of choices - make sure you give Hurley's a try! There is something on the menu for everyone, including a very reasonably priced prix fixe menu. The food is excellently prepared and presented and most of all, tastes great! Service is professional but friendly; everything you would expect from a fine dining establishment in Napa Valley.
Really well done.
Hurleys has been a favorite for my wife and I for a few years now the food is excellent service first rate and the ambience nice
While the meal was quite good, it did not rise to gourmet levels. Rack of lamb ordered medium and a second order medium well. Both orders were served what I would call rare.
The lamb lacked suitable seasoning to be really good.
Food is good (the crab cakes and the boar was excellent). The wine pours are a tad light for the price, but good selections. They do not charge a corkage on the first bottle.
Hurleys always delivers a great evening with good service and great food. Our Valentine's Day dinner was really unusual, with special choices on the menu. Hurleys is a good value and a local hang-out for Napa Valley wine and food people.
As always we had a very good dinner. However, this night was an unannounced Mardi Gras meal that we did not anticipate and would have probably not eaten threre, even though the food was great, if we had know this. We were just looking for the regular menu.
Mardi Gras dinner is for the locals who go every year so outsiders should go another night to truly experience the greatness of Bob and his team.
We celebrated Mardi Gras with Bob Hurley and Karen Crouse who helped Bob put on this authentic cajun meal. Needless to say the meal and ambiance were great. Our server also needs to be complimented, he makes you feel special and thats what hospitality is about. We are locals and eat at Hurleys often, he is the best and we would highly recommend his wondeful restaurant.
Hurley's never disappoints. The food is always great. Service is even better. We had the bee's knee cocktail, just yummm! We brought wine, wine not! They don't charge a corkage on the first bottle! We had the steak, short ribs, wild boar and scallops. Everyone enjoyed their entrees.
The menu is quite varied so everyone should be able to find something they would like to order. There is a large amount of outdoor seating available but it was too cold and windy to sit outdoors the day I was there. There is warm and quiet seating in the back area of the restaurant. The food was delicious, the cocktails perfect, and we were able to carry on a conversation without shouting at each other, and they take reservations. (some restaurants in the Napa Valley area don't!)
We decided to celebrate our anniversary here and were so pleased with the experience. We got to sit by the beautiful fireplace and the service was exceptional and detailed. We had the Prix Fixe menu and were very satisfied with the flavor and overall taste quality
Good food. No corkage. Well worth the price
The staff could not have been nicer or more attentive. Bread and water appeared as soon as they were requested. The food was delicious, as usual. Just a wonderful dining experience.
By far, the best thing about Hurley's was the service. We two astonishingly good people waiting on us, and they went far beyond the usual level of service in taking care of us.
The food wasn't as good as the service. The Moroccan Tagine was not good (items within were not cooked correctly), and the maple chicken--while good--could have been much better with more attention to the crust. On the other hand, the banana cream pie for dessert was very good.
All in all, an enjoyable experience because of the service!
Great location for Oakland and Sacramento gals to meet. We both chose the Vintners Menu (both choosing the Oakwood Grilled Pork Tenderloin). It was all tasty and reasonably priced. We did share one Course THREE: Creme Brulee Trio. Sat by the window and watched people pass by, quiet enough to talk and catch-up with each other. From the bread selections through dessert, all thumbs-UP.
Fantastic restaurant. Great food. Great service. No corkage fee.
Just kind of average all around, relative to other places in the area.
Still the cozy place I remember and the service was terrific; however, my soup and entree were on the bland side.
A really excellent experience...we were surprised because the name of the restaurant does not foreshadow how nice a place this is...
Service was perfect. Bartender makes the perfect Manhattan. Roast chicken with fingerling potatoes was great -- very tasty but a bit salty (which is fine for me). Starter of goat cheese & panchetta tart was wonderful -- we joked with server saying "cancel our entrees and bring us two more tarts."
We went in January and the restaurant was not full...and it was extremely cold in the restaurant. We told our waitress we were cold. She smiled and said she would tell "someone" but it remained cold. My date asked if the heat could be turned up. The manager came over to the table after walking over and turning up the heat( or so it appeared). She said she hoped that would help. It remained cold. I went to the restroom- icy. My date asked while I was in the restroom if we could be moved to a different table that might be warmer. We were moved to a table directly under the thermostat. When I returned from the restroom I checked the temp...it was set at 64 degrees. We would not go back in January. The food was good but we were too cold to enjoy it.
This is our go to place in Yountville. Always incredible food and the wait staff are always helpful, informed and go a step further.
You can never go wrong with the wild boar by the way.
Unattentative wait service; food quality uneven; beautiful setting; many other options in short walking distance
We celebrated New Years Eve, December 2017 at Hurleys because they consistently provide wonderfully prepared meals and great service. They had a beautiful 4 course menu for NYE with just enough choices that pleased our party of 6. I had a salad, scallops, Osso Buco and baked Alaska. Each dish was perfectly cooked and tasty. We like bringing our own special wines and they were very accommodating to our special occasion of 6 bottles. Our servers were also delightful and helped us enjoy a very festive evening.
The service was great and the food was better. Could not have asked for more.
Little-know gem of a restaurant in Yountville.
Chef Bob Hurley believed and accomplished success with farm to table long before it was a trend. Equally creative as Chez Pannise without the drama and for that matter the traffic, congestion, and crime of Berkeley.
Safe to wander everywhere in Yountville after your delicious meal. Park 10 feet from the entrance for free.
The Pear Confite was amazing as was everything during the meal.
The server was amazingly attentive without being obtrusive.
The staff seemed to work together as a team that genuinely wanted us to have a memorable experience.
Octopus salad ahi tuna fantastic. Our waitress was spot on. Can’t wait to get back.
We live in the area and there are many wonderful restaurants but Hurleys is our first choice. Bob Hurley always makes a sincere effort to welcome us and his style is passed on to his staff. The service as always was excellent and the food was great.
One of our party was late and the wait staff was very patient while we got him there. The Sea
food Stew was wonderful. Best I've had... Very pleasant dining room.
We dine here often and have never been disappointed with the food or service.
Hurley’s never, ever fails to provide an exciting menu with delicious food, great (fun) service capped off with fine wine or crafty cocktails! I can always count on them for a wonderful evening!
We’ve eaten at Hurley’s many times. Always good tasty food and warm friendly service. We’ll be back.
