Great service from a well informed waiter. Food, as usual, was superb. Excellent discussion of available wines and ended up buying a Portuguese red.

Took 30 min for drinks, Mahi mahi and risotto were pretty bland. Meal was worth maybe half what we paid. Really disappointed. First time was better, this time was pretty rough. Every place has a bad night once in awhile. Will try once more.

The fettuccine Delmar was watery and flavorless.The calamari was wonderful, the Porkchop was wonderful the mahi mahi was very good. The last time we were there I had the shrimp and Rosoto which was very good but way way too salty. Service was great. We will come again

We enjoyed our evening very much. My daughter is gluten free and was so happy you had gluten free bread. We both thought our dinners were delicious and the service was very attentive. Our waitress was Kim and she was outstanding. We have been to Napa several times and always have enjoyed it. She had the salmon and I had the cioppino and both of them were tasty.

We had a party of 11 for my birthday. We spent A LOT of money here expecting a good dinner but this restaurant does not have the experience to accommodate for large parties. Stay away. We were there for 3 hours with 1.5 hours waiting for our dinner to come out. No discount no sympathy no nothing. Horrible experience!

Our dining experience was fairly average. The ambience at Napa is very charming. We stated in our reservation that we were celebrating a birthday, the host and server never mentioned it or asked who’s birthday it was . Not that we were expecting anything. Most restaurants will at least acknowledge it and give you a free desert. The service was average and the food was good. Overall it was a positive experience.

We have not visited Napa in a while but we’re frequent diners for several years. Unfortunately we found the food quality has declined. Wilted lettuce and much smaller portions for the wedge salad, Steak with the Steak and Frites was very dry with a pesto paste that had to be days old it was so dry. A Juliette pizza that was undercooked. We always loved the wine selection and hope they can fix the food.

The decor and service at Napa is 5 star. The menu is limited but with a variety of choices from pizzas to sandwiches to entrees. I had their version of a Caesar salad and it was excellent. The hearts of romaine were super crisp and icy cold. It was not soaked in dressing which is appreciated by many and there was a taste of bacon and chopped tomato to keep the salad interesting. My entree, shrimp risotto was good. The shrimp was cooked to perfection. I asked for a quiet table and we were seated in a corner of the wine wall. Nice, cozy and oh so tempting to taste a variety of the wines displayed. I'd give Napa a try.

I cannot recommend this restaurant to anyone. I had a chicken dish that had no flavor whatsoever. My father's brussel sprouts were not cooked thoroughly and were too hard and chewy for him to eat. My sisters pizza was good awful. I've had better frozen pizzas. Something is just off at this place. Get better chefs.

My mom and I drove over an hour due to restaurant week for our dinner.
One bad thing is gps cannot find the right driveway. We drove around three times before we found them but that's not their fault.
We had an awesome server named Kim she was so very personable and made us feel so welcome. The food was delicious and we will for sure be back most likely for Sunday brunch.

Service was excellent. The decor and ambiance of the restaurant was relaxing, but lively.

However, the majority of our food was unflavorful and lacking in taste. The salmon had a small drizzle of sauce, the broccoli was just steamed or boiled with no salt or seasoning.

The pasta was a similar situation. There was a lot of sauce, but no flavor. We were quite flavorless.

If we were not extremely hungry we might have sent both entrees back.

The chicken soup had no seasoning, basically a broth with slivers of chicken. Nothing spectacular.

However, the bake Brie was excellent. I highly recommend it. The key lime pie and the pot of chocolate were both delicious.

Overall 3 dishes were great and 3 were terrible. However service was excellent, but we will probably not be returning .

Thankful for Restaurant Week so we could experience a new restaurant! After booking our table, I looked online to find out some details before visiting - attire, ambiance, theme etc. We were early for our reservation and tried to find somewhere at bar, but it is smaller than expected and was rather busy. The decor is rustic and wine themed and both my husband and I really liked how it looked. They have a ton of wine lining the walls, which we were later told were able to be shopped and opened while dining, but I felt like that might be a little overwhelming due to quantity!

We were there on a Tuesday, which is 1/2 price bottles of wine. What a win! We asked our waiter for a recommendation and the one he helped us pick was amazing! The perfect blend of fruity for me and dry for my husband. We were seated in a little room towards the back, which I was excited about for the cozy feeling, but then disappointed when I realized there were babies at 2 of the 6 tables. Crying babies. I'd read on Yelp that it was not kid friendly and was looking forward to a more romantic night out, so I was surprised to experience that.

We ordered off the special menu and between the two of us received - tuscan chicken soup, baked french brie, Steak Frites, Fettucini Del Mar, triple chocolate pot de creme and key lime pie. Everything was very good and the portions were well-sized. The chocolate pot de creme reminded me of just super soft fudge and was pretty rich, and husband said the soup was just like normal soup without noodles. Our waiter was fantastic.

Key takeaways: Liked the interior, delicious food, amazing wine and we felt well taken care of during our experience. We will return for sure!

We visited during restaurant week, and ordered 3 different meals at our table. For the appetizers, the bakes brie was lovely to look at, but the brie was overdone, so melted that all that was left was the pastry crust. A bit too much honey, but that's just our taste. Chicken tortilla soup was lacking in spice/ heat.
The seafood pasta was very good, cream sauce intact, loaded with shrimp and lobster. The salmon was ok, cooked fine, not outstanding in any way. The steak frite with roasted brussel sprouts was a huge disappointment. Although it was cooked properly (medium rare), the steak was devoid of seasoning, except for some green garnish. The sprouts were barely cooked and not at all what we would call roasted, and no discernible seasoning. Desserts were pot de creme - really, no, although attractively presented, was more of a pudding than actual pot de creme, and the key lime pie was industrial grade.

Jerry was our server and he was excellent.

First time at Napa Kitchen & Bar. Joined a friend for lunch. Ordered Eggs Benedetta on sourdough bread and shaved Pancetta.

The eggs were done perfectly, the Hollandaise was excellent BUT the knife at the table to use to cut the sourdough bread and the slightly slippery Pancetta made for the entire plate becoming covered all over so difficult to get bread, Pancetta and egg/with hollandaise all in one bite.

I thought about asking for a steak knife but thought that was way too bizarre!!

I found the decor a little too dark for my tastes...reminded me of an Old Steak and Ale restaurant fro m the 80's.
