I don’t get all of the great reviews. Totally overrated. Expensive, mediocre service and food. Our server was off, not paying attention, slow. Solid 3 stars but probably not worth the price. $19 chicken wings were nothing special.

We popped by for lunch on a Tuesday and boy was it bumping! Every table was full, truck stop inspired place, but upscale food. Not a lot of veggie options, no visible vegan options outside of customizing a salad, no non-dairy milks for lattes. They’re famous for their Mongolian pork chop which the hubby said was fantastic! My grilled cheese sandwich was pretty impressive as well - the hit of basil oil really elevated it. Cool onsite gardens where I assume they’re growing some of their own herbs and veggies. If you’re looking for hearty upscale comfort food, and don’t mind a loud and bustling restaurant, you’ll really enjoy Mustards!

My party and I have always had good experiences. On this particular visit, the hostess was great and very inviting, but the service at our table did not match. Our waitress did not seem very inviting, especially when asked questions about the menu. Questions were answered somewhat rudely and did not leave us wanting to ask additional menu related questions. Regarding the food, Caesar salad was ordered and the salad was heavily over-dressed and at one point, there was one leave of romaine that was full of parmesan cheese, while the rest of the salad has some. Another member of our party was missing her side of vegetables; we had to ask our waitress. The evening was very busy and while we may generally enjoy the restaurant, this particular visit is one we'd like to reset.

Returned to the restaurant after many years. It was busy (as always since it is an icon of the Napa Valley) and guests were enjoying themselves in conversation...only moderately noisy for such a small restaurant. The tamale appetizer was tasty but a little small warranting what should have been a second appetizer to share. We ordered the pork chop and rabbit with wine, which was very good ($130+ tip). Pleasant, well-attending staff served us, although the bartender was so busy with table orders he could not serve guests waiting for their tables. However, this was an overall good restaurant and experience. I would go again, although I would not rush to revisit as among my top choices in the Napa Valley, Yountville and the Napa areas. Some say lunch is a good experience too.

The pork chop was definitely a standout, as were the potato chips and blue cheese dip, chicken wings, and ribs. A bit on the pricier side but good food and great service. I’d totally return. We’ll try the Caesar salad and onion rings next time, seemed very popular. We both liked the bread, too, and thought it was better than Bouchon’s!

Fantastic meal and service. We started with some tasty cocktails at the bar. The calamari was some of the best we've ever had, and we've had a lot. Melt in your mouth tender with crunchy coating. Unusual for us, all three of us ordered the pork chop because we had already decided we didn't want to share or trade for anything else! Nobody regretted that decision.

It's a cute little bar and cozy restaurant. Great ambience. We will return. It is a bit pricey, but you in Napa Valley. Totally worth the price.

We've gone to Mustard's since Cindy opened it many, many years ago (and Cindy was there, which usually doesn't happen). My daughter also once worked at Mustard's so we know its popularity, so much so that we don't even try to eat there on a weekend or holiday. However, Monday last was a "mental health" day for my daughter so we scored a lunchtime reservation and got right in and seated on time (usually unheard of!). And, of course, we have our menu favorites: straight away the potato chips with bleu cheese dressing, a must, followed by ahi tuna crackers, an ahi tuna burger and the lemon chicken for me, with the pineapple upside down cake (with ice cream, of course) to finish. It was all spectacular; I just wish it wasn't quite so popular so we could partake of the good food and cheer more often!

In for a business trip from Houston, a friend had recommended this restaurant explaining their wonderful experience from previous visit.
My wife and I had reservations at noon and they seated us immediately. Waiter was awesome the entire time. The lamb burger and chicken were awesome..but the onions with Apple ketchup was to die for! Then we had the chocolate cherry bread pudding and about fainted as it was out of this world in flavor! We will be back and highly recommend...make reservations as they were packed and you’ll have to wait other wise.

We have dined at Mustards Grill for over 30 years and we have always had an exception meal and experience. We love the crab cake appetizer which is all crab. The onion rings are crazy good and we order the hangar steak most times, even though there are many delicious items for a main course, because it never fails to deliver. The accompanying onion jam and water crescent sauce makes it unique and something you must try. 5 stars (should be more stars) again for Mustards.
