As always, the food and ambience was great! We visited the onsite organic garden after our meal and it was great to see. I’ll be back soon.
We came for my son's birthday and arrived a little early for our reservation but the hostess was super sweet and was able to seat us. The food was delicious and our server was super spot on with everything, can't wait to come back again.

Our table was not ready when we checked in for our reservation. When we were seated the table was dirty. My food was raw. The waitress was bothered by my sending my food back. I will not be returning to this restaurant and cannot recommend it to others.
Words cannot express how good the pork chop is... just amazing. Loved every minute at this place!
Our server Ali P was very good, she catered to our every need and was very personable. The food was spot on, great flavor, correct temperature, good portion, and nice presentation. Good place to eat while in the area.
Food was great as always,
It’s been 22 years since my spouse & I dined at Mustard’s and luckily, we got seated adjacent to where we last visited & dined. Everything was wonderful except our delicious bread was served ON the table linen and not on a bread plate, like every other table. I thought that was rather peculiar.
Dinner with friends
My wife and I had dinner at Mustards Grill last Thursday. We went to many of the top-rated spots while in Napa and Sonoma Valley, and Mustards was among the very best! I really have no complaints, so we'll just move on to the good...
It's so refreshing to have cuisine executed at such a high level but in an environment so casual, fun, and inviting. The food and wine service are absolutely top notch but without even a hint of pretention. It was our first visit, but we were treated like regulars.
We started with a burrata salad with grilled local nectarines and cherries as well the sweet corn tamales. Both were fantastic and light. The tamales were served with wild mushrooms, pumpkin seeds, and a tomatillo sauce, and were as delicious as any tamale I’ve had in the southwest. My wife ordered the rabbit with summer vegetables in a savory and light consommé and with an herb sauce with a finish that seemed to last forever. I ordered the Truckstop cut of the day, which was a Waygu center-cut rib steak served with Chanterelles and Cipollini onions. This was simply the best steak I’ve ever had!! The cabernet jus was so rich and perfect that it still lingers today! We finished with a flawless lemon meringue, so light and perfectly browned.
Thanks to Mustards Gill for a fantastic experience. Everything from the food, wine, service, and ambiance was excellent, and we look forward to our next visit!
Great food and an even better experience!
I did not get my 100 points from open table so made me rate this less than excellent which it was
As a resident of the Napa Valley, I have frequented Mustards on and off for 25 years.
This last meal was truly lacking the excellence that I have previously experienced.
The ahi tuna and the tamale were both excellent and the steak was good.
Everything else was mediocre at best; the duck burger was raw in places, the arugula
on the burger was wilted and a few pieces were yellowed, the Asian chicken salad
was a mixture of uninspired, pedestrian greens, too many noodles and did not come
together. The chicken sandwich seemed ordinary. The fries were leaden, seemed reheated
and I've enjoyed most fast food fries more.
I did not voice a complaint at the time as I did not want my guests to feel uncomfortable
but have no wish to revisit the restaurant and spend that amount of money on poor quality
and will certainly no longer recommend you.
What more can be said about this Napa staple
Gabriel was spectacular
Second time as good as the first! Great service and great food
It’s been 13 years since I ate at Mustards because I live on the east coast and it was as wonderful as the first time we ate there:). Awesome food. Go and enjoy.
Always fun and excellent. Cannot go wrong with any choice.
Everything was great except open table did no give us our points.
Always a favorite when heading back to Sacramento from Bodega Bay. Refreshing innovative and delightful. Love the 3 1/2 wine glass flights.
Great food and service. It was nice to see Patrick on his last day at Mustards. When I was selling wine for Six Sigma Winery Patrick, Jason and James were the best.
There is no bad choice at mustards. From seasonal cocktails to the most amazing duck burger in the world! Excellent food!
Can always count on Mustards for a delicious, friendly meal in a great room.
We had an excellent dinner and service by Gabriel at Mustards Grill. We had a 7:15 p.m. reservation, but they took us earlier than that which was great. The meal started with delicious bread which they buy locally through the Model Bakery. We ordered the yummy baby back ribs (which Gabriel kindly offered and did cut for me which was greatly appreciated). In addition, we ordered a pasta dish with seafood which was also exceptional. For dessert, we had the warm chocolate hazelnut truffle tart which came with ice-cream - it was fabulous! We appreciated the quality and flavor of the food, how the food was spaced, and the attentive and friendly service by Gabriel. We will return to Mustards the next time we are in Napa.
Fresh flavorful rabbit and chicken. Delicious seasonal succotash.
Mustards did not disappoint. The food was delicious, wine pairings excellent and service very friendly and personal. I would highly recommend Mustards, and it is popular, so be sure to make a reservation. Thank you Mustards for a wonderful evening!!
We enjoyed meals at Mustards years ago and looked forward to our return visit. Alas, it did not live up to our expectations. My hangar steak was overcooked and my wife's crab cakes were described as dry and dull. She did rave about the side dish of vegetables, most of which came from the restaurant's adjacent garden. The service was a bit abrupt. Perhaps we ordered poorly but one should expect everything on a menu in Napa Valley to be better than just OK.
Always good food and service!
Mustards never disappoints! Great food, fabulous service and an amazing menu! Every time I come to Napa it is always on my list of restaurants to get to.
Great interpretation of classic American dishes. The onion rings are addictive.
The Hunan chicken salad is a pleasant surprise. The sauce gives multiple layers of flavor.
The Mongolian pork chop is perhaps best served slightly rare. The swine is good meat.
Girls trip to Napa to celebrate our upcoming 50th birthdays. Had lunch at Mustards Grill in between winery tours. Excellent service-very accommodating as we were late for our reservation, and amazing food
Good food, excellent service, nice atmosphere. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone coming to the Napa Valley. We did not order wine but the wine list is excellent.
Known for their tostada, it did not disappoint with a large piece of swordfish topping it. The mushroom and gruyere veggie burger mushed out the sides of the bun and was a mess to eat. The lemon lime tart, also a favorite, was mouth watering. The sticky rice pudding was less impressive.
Great food. The seafood tostada was flavorful and very unique. The pork chop was excellent and we will definitely return to this restaurant
Great food. Terrible service. Very inexperienced waitress. We’ve eaten there 100 times and this is our only really bad experience. Don’t get the young blond waitress. Manager did comp a lot of the bill but we had our meal ruined. Would have much rather paid full price with a large tip for great service
Delicious food, excellent service, wonderful ambience and great value. The hazelnut chocolate dessert was amazing.
My mom and I went for dinner while we were in Napa. Mustards is a must stop!! Our waiter, Reece, was amazing! We absolutely loved him. The ambiance is great and we loved everything we ordered. We will be going back and I’ll recommend mustards to all my friends! Do yourself a favor and GO!!
Cindy, thank you for keeping this place vibrant and relevant. We love the place and go there every time that we are in the Valley. As the menu says: "Sorry, everything is delicious" and they mean it!
after many years we revisited and was delighted to see that it still was very good, food, service, and price,
The mustard grill is an experience not to be missed Fantastic!
We had an incredible lunch here! Food was super fresh and delish!
Absolute must. Perfect break between tastings. You won’t regret it.
