I took my mom here for Mother's Day and they placed us at a table in the back right by the kitchen (totally fine) however, during our meal the GM goes into the back speaking very loudly to the kitchen staff venting about a customer complaint (calling this lady a B*tch I might add), it really put a damper on the meal. So my mom and I asked if we could speak to him, basically letting him know his voice carries and that our table the surrounding ones heard everything and it was not appropriate, we were kind but clear that it was not okay. This guy does not apologize, instead he asks if we'd like to be moved to a "quieter table" (we were already done eating) and then goes in the back into the kitchen and tells everyone to "keep it down" and shush's staff, essentially taunting us. So rude, I will not be back. They need a new GM who is professional.

We had a wonderful dinner at Napa Kitchen + Bar. The service we received was absolutely excellent! She was very attentive but never hovered and was extremely personable. We were given excellent wine advice with follow up to see what we thought. The food (baked Brie, shrimp risotto and dessert) was excellent. We can’t wait to come back!

Eric was our Server and did a very good job.

It was spring Restaurant Week so it was crowded, even with social distancing. It was quite loud as tables were enjoying themselves after lots of wine drinking!

Foods were delicious--- the charcuterie board was tasty.
I had the blackened salmon sandwich with fries--- yummy and hit the spot.

My dinner companions had never been--- they enjoyed it very much!
Thank you!
Need better signage out front by Main Entrance!

My husband and I shared the fettuccini del Mare and the braised short ribs. The seafood fettuccini was very gingery, unusual and delcious. The Braised short rib was very overcooked. The outside was inedible, but the inside was delicious. Unfortunately the burnt outside kind of ruined it. The baked brie was exceptional as was the bread pudding. We loved the wine flights.

Tried out Napa Kitchen for restaurant week and I’m so happy we did!! The restaurant itself is unique and I liked the atmosphere. We had excellent service and the food was incredible, especially the short rib. I loved the crispy outside and the inside just fell apart (in a good way!). I will definitely come back and will be recommending to others.

Food is OK not great. They try an that is worth mention. Confused how this gets over 4 stars average as the quality was average. Server took about 15 mins to return to table after meal arrived, had an issue but it only got resolved in slow fashion.

Nice atmosphere stick to the wine and an appetizer my 2 cents.

Excellent menu. The baked French brie and orange marmalade in the honey drizzled phyllo shell started the meal off perfectly especially when paired with one of their white wine flights. The eclectic menu offers a variety of unique and very tasty dishes. Our only complaint was the service was a bit rushed, even on a slow night. The entrees were brought to the table well before we could enjoy the appetizers. Aside from that, it was a delightful evening and we will visit again soon.

Michelle was our Server and did a great job.

Dinner Group of 8 Ladies enjoyed our 1st get the in over a year since the shutdown .
It was fun to see everyone and enjoy good foods and drinks.
The decor is warm and inviting.
Better signage is needed outside to see the name and front door better !
I had the tomato bisque soup-- rich and hearty.
And the crab cake appetizer--- delicious and yummy.
I'd like to go again and try the steak frites.
Thank you,

Was disappointed in our service as our waitress was very close. Also not pleased with the baked Brie appetizer as it came out with only 3 small crostini’s to eat it with between the two of us. When we asked for more of them we were told by our waitress that’s how it comes out and she never did bring us anymore. We had been one other time before and enjoyed it so much so this was very disappointing this time around.

We ordered calamari, with the short rib and salmon entres. The calamari was delicious with thick cuts of calamari and perfectly breaded. I enjoyed the short rib, the mushroom risotto flavor reminded me of my lazy rice/mushroom soup recipe I make at home, but it was tasty and went well with the short rib. My wife orders salmon almost everywhere we go and she was not impressed. She always replies with either a "really good," "good," "okay," or "not good." When I asked, she told me her meal was "okay." She said there wasn't enough orange flavor to the salmon and the side vegetables weren't seasoned well.

We both loved the atmosphere, and I loved the fact that they have wine flights so I can try multiple wines while I'm there.

I would eat here again, but not for a special occasion. I wouldn't say the food was special by any means. We stated on the reservation that we were celebrating our 5 year wedding anniversary and they didn't acknowledge in any way that it was our anniversary, unlike many other places we've been. I wish I would have chosen another place for our special day.

In summary, for a casual meal in a restaurant with classy decor this place is a good choice. If you're looking to have the best meal you've had in a while, or are looking for a place to celebrate a special occasion I'd recommend another place, there are plenty of exellent places in Montgomery.
