Last day in Napa for a girls trip and made a reservation for lunch before we headed to the airport. Great menu, excellent wait staff and the food did not disappoint. We shared the potato chips with blue cheese dip - yum! I had the soup on the day Thai Curry Butternut Squash with Ahi tuna without the bun and my friend had the swordfish tacos. Everything was really good. Loved the heat on the soup and the Ahi was perfectly prepared.

Outstanding service and food. Worth the drive from Calistoga after a day of wine tasting. Make reservations since this place is popular and fills up quickly. The pork chop with the mustard sauce was cooked to perfection.

I look forward to eating at Mustard’s Grill twice a year when I visit the Bay Area. I especially look forward to their lamb burger but I like it with just lettuce tomato and onion rather than their special presentation. When I mentioned to the server how I wanted it she said “I’ll have to ask the chef if tomato is available” As I look around and see it on other diners’ hamburgers. She seemed really put out so I told her just to bring the grilled chicken which I could get just about anywhere else. Wasted trip.

Big fan of Cindy’s St. Helena restaurant, and since it closed made the drive to Mustards. So worth it! Looking for a late lunch, early dinner. Ordrerd the onion straw appetizer, delicious but too much for just two people. Burger and BBQ were equally good, and the lemon meringue dessert, huge, and out of this world. Will return soon and order from the full dinner menu.

Great dinner. All of us had the highly recommended Mongolian Pork Chop. With that we had the onion rings which were great. Superb. Also, great service by Ali. We were there on October 7th, 2018, the night a Spacex Rocket was launched in California. Nobody knew it was the Rocket we were watching in the sky but it captured the attention of everyone in the restaurant and helped to make that night even more special.

Arrived early and had drinks & appetizer @ bar. Service and food outstanding.
Called on time of reservation, server pleasant and helpful.
Meal ordered and served. Their food was served hot and presentation on plate made it.
Pork Chop was as stated completely “off the hook”.
NY Steak looked great however was not cooked to order.
This was swiftly handled by server and attending manager.
I was disappointed but due to everyone involved along with their Famous Lemon Meringue Pie which was “ WOW “ and their delicious coffee. I will return happy to dine again.
Thank You “Mustards”

For Barbra our server, my apologies to the Mgr. I forgot your name.

First of all this is an immensely popular place. However; if you expect your reservation to be honored in a timely manner, scratch this otherwise good restaurant off your list. My gut feel is that overbooking is SOP (on a previous visit I observed the same pattern of not being seated promptly by the reservation time). Given the tools restaurants have at their disposal these days to manage customer flows, there is no excuse for delays in seating of more than a few minutes past the reservation time.

Comfort food prepared in gourmet fashion is the way I would classify the menu. The items we ordered were spot on in preparation and presentation. Service was sluggish, however; perhaps too many tables per server.

Good experience overall.

The food was good, but the service was terrible. It was very loud and chaotic. Next trip to Napa will not earn a repeat visit, even though food is the lure. Sadly, it's just not worth the experience.

We went to Mustards to celebrate our anniversary. We felt very special as they started us with complimentary sparkling wine. The wait staff were friendly and did a good job. The food was delicious. I tried the lamb, which is never had before, and I was very pleased.

Fresh and local ingredients. The ribs are usually excellent but seemed dried out this visit but coleslaw and cornbread to die for. Amazing onion rings and the chicken salad was wonderful. It’s noisy so wouldn’t recommend for quiet meal. It was my birthday and I was a little disappointed that they brought me a tablespoon of plain vanilla ice cream. It was tasty but thought they could at least add some sort of topping. I suggest to bring your own cake if it’s a birthday celebration

I read a couple of reviews that mentioned the sweet corn tamale, so we tried that. It was fantastic!
Also, the soup of the day was a squash and white bean with the most astounding flavor. My companion and I tried to figure out all of the different ingredients we were experiencing. It was masterful! We then shared the Hunan Grilled Chicken Salad which was very yummy, as well. You really can't go wrong with any choice you make. Only drawback, it is extremely noisy! Private conversation is a challenge.

Starting with the ease to make reservations to the fact that our table was waiting when we got there to the excellent, friendly, knowledgeable service to the delectable food, our whole experience was one to remember. We had friends visiting from Portland, OR and they were also quite impressed. We've never had a bad, yet a not so good experience. Every time we come we are delighted in many ways and not disappointed.

Absolutely loved this restaurant. In the midst of so many great restaurants-this is a standout. We brought our own wine so we did not take advantage of the extensive wine like but we really enjoyed looking through the offerings.

The NY strip steak was incredible. Ordered rare+ and they served up a perfectly grilled steak with a little char on outside and perfectly grilled rare + on inside.

The dunguness crab cakes great. Salad with blue cheese was also delish

Service was great Will come back here
