We have visited Mustard’s several times over the years while visiting Napa Valley and have enjoyed it. This time I ordered the fish of the day, Halibut served in a pepper cream sauce. Unfortunately halibut was over cooked and dry. Manager was very nice and offered to re-do it but I opted not. My husband ordered the duck and enjoyed it very much. They did send a complimentary dessert to us which was considerate.

Great dining experience at a local and storied restaurant in Napa. The service by Doug was excellent and he took the time to share a little of the restaurants background and a good overview of the menu.
Some of the wines are not branded, but, were excellent. I tried the pinot noir flight and it was great pairing with the beef dish that night.
And yes, great food. This is must try stop if you are visiting Napa.

My wife and I have been eating at Mustards Grill since Cindy opened this historic restaurant a long time ago (30+ years). We still have one of her original "Menus", I just need her to autograph it (BIG SMILE). We have enjoyed all of Cindy's restaurants and continue to dine at our favorite restaurant in the Napa Valley.
I know there are a lot of famous Owners/Chefs out of the Napa Valley region, but I consider Cindy the leader of the term "California Culinary Cuisine".

Reese was wonderful - shared his opinion regarding the menu and made sure we didn’t miss anything.

I dined many years ago and really enjoyed the skirt steak.... actually 25 years ago... that’s how wonderful it was.... however going back a few times after that I found the service to be rude and arrogant and unwelcoming- thinking we’re all tourists.

The food is average - to be truthful I had a sandwich and thought CBK’s sandwiches were better. Our guest LOVED the pork chop- it was her first time and last as she is moving this week.

Reese changed my opinion about the service- he was friendly and welcoming... now whether that’s because I came with “newer” local that has made herself know to the restaurant, I don’t know... but either way, the service from Reese was very attentive.

For the price, however I will stick to my other places as I think the food is better. I will go to a place for decent food as long as I’m given wonderful service, but I won’t over pay for it.

We have so many choices in the valley...

I considered Cindy a friend for many years... celebrated the 20th anniversary of Mustards, held my own event at CBK, and would give her as much business as I possibly could, as long as I didn’t feel like I was over paying for what I was receiving.... I still will.

Who knows, maybe I’ll come by for lunch during the slow season.


Thank you-

Come with an appetite! The meals were excellent and abundant! We enjoyed the pulled pork sandwich and the hanger steak. I had the soup of the day which was fantastic. My wife added the onion rings (great but needed a forklift to deliver them - stacked to the ceiling). Did the butterscotch pot of cream with a cookie. Excellent wine list!!!

Our server, Gabriel, was very personable and efficient. THE SERVICE WAS EXCELLENT!!!

We will definitely be back!!!

My S.O. and I have been going to Mustards for 20+ years and it always has reliably good food and service. Sadly, just like the rest of the Bay and Napa Areas, it has also gone massively upscale price wise. It is a very nice, "casual" restaurant and always an enjoyable dining experience -- at least until the bill comes. A hundred and thirty dollars for lunch for two (including two of the cheapest glasses of wine) is just too much. In the Bay Area large groups of 20-somethings go out on corporate functions and so no one cares about the bill. Up in Napa it seems to be some combo of incredible rich middle to old age folk and expense account diners. I have had enough of it.

We met friends for lunch and we were never hurried as we visited. The onion rings are the best anywhere. The Best. Service was attentive but not over watchful. Food was out quickly and was hot. However, the spare ribs - which I’ve enjoyed before - was a not as tender, fall of the fork as I expected, so this was a disappointing. However, I plan to go back another time since is one of my favorite restaurants.
