    I always enjoy Napa Kitchen. The wine flights are fun. The bleu cheese salad is delicious, along with the risotto and brie pizza. Service is always great.

    The Griled shrimp and risotto was good except the shrimp was a little overdone. The steak frites was very fatty and chewy. For $35 it should have been better. We hadn’t been to Napa for 6 months because our last experience was not good. I don’t know if we’ll be back. It’s sad because it used to be pretty good.

    Our server was great. It was only her 6th day. It took them 20 minutes to come to table at the beginning. I think the tables are so uncomfortable. There is no way to have your legs underneath because of the legs. Mixed drinks were good in flavor but had very little alcohol. I have two drinks and felt nothing.

    The service of our waiter was good, however it was evident that he was spread too thin. 2 of the party ordered the bacon white cheddar burger and both burgers were cooked well, when they were ordered medium. The burgers were not seasoned well. 2 of the party ordered the Juliette flatbread, which the flavor was great. One of the orders took an additional 5-10 minutes to arrive at the table delaying everyone to start eating. The atmosphere was great, just not staffed appropriately for a consistent dining experience.

    Not the person to typically leave a bad review but completely unimpressed with this restaurant. 1. Menu prices on open table menu do not reflect current prices. 2. Ordered 2 steak and frites meals and not impressed whatsoever. They did not ask us how we wanted steak cooked and they came to us well done and completely overcooked (which is interesting because our bill and waitress told us they should have been cooked medium). Also the “Parmesan garlic french fries” were basic french fries you would get at a fast food joint. Would say the meal was worth $20, not $35.

    Chris was our server and he was great. The food was delicious. I chose the shortribs, hubby had salmon. Both were delivered hot and plated nicely. Both came with carrots. I usually don't eat cooked carrots their's paired excellently with the meal and were cooked to what I think was perfection. You will leave satisfied but not stuffed.

    We get that establishments are lacking staff and experience. My spouse's original order was not good. My spouse mentioned this to the waitress, a new meal was served, quite timely. Sadly, the second meal was over cooked as well. In the case of my meal, the fries were under cooked. These were not brought up to the waitress. We have been to this establish many times prior and it was good in the past. We are not giving up on them, but will wait a while before returning to give them a chance to work things out.

    The food for the most part, was very good. Our waitress was also very good. The biggest issue, the restaurant was clearly under-staffed. Our reservation was at 7:15pm and we didn’t leave until after 10pm. Getting our drinks and appetizer was very slow. We ordered our dinner and 45 minutes later we spoke to the manager because we had not received our meals. My friend’s pork chop was under cooked and she had to send it back. This is such a nice restaurant and everyone working was very nice and apologetic. However, after a long day at work on Friday, spending hours at a restaurant waiting on drinks and meals was not a good time.

    Normally this is one of our "go to" places for date night and/or family night. They have amazing wine selection and the food and service has always been great...plus only 5 minutes from our house. This time was not good. They were out of a number of regular menu items. That's understood in this time. The issue was the server wasn't knowledgeable on those items and required three trips to the kitchen to finally place our order. His attitude was obviously indifferent. Throughout the course of the our stay, his service didn't get better. I definitely felt judged the moment the server saw our party. Three of the four food selections were good. The flatbread was awful. When server came to check on food, we politely mentioned that something was off and the flatbread didn't taste right. He just said sorry and walked away. We were there for my Mom's birthday dinner and we've bragged how much we enjoy Napa. We were embarrassed and everyone was disappointed.

    Wedge salad wasn’t a wedge at all. I had braised short ribs which were good. I was told that the mushroom risotto that comes with the dish was unavailable. I was given brown , unflavored rice. The glazed carrots were 6 chunks of a carrot rolling around on the plate. Drinks/water were left infilled for long periods of time. We went to celebrate my birthday. Not impressed.

    This was our first time visiting Napa Kitchen+Bar in Montgomery. Pros: restaurant is beautiful. Cincinnatians may remember when it was the Stone Creek Dining Company space. They've completely remodeled and it's really beautiful. We were seated promptly and the service was excellent from start to finish. I had a glass of the Poppy Merlot (?) and it was so good, I purchased a bottle. Cons: The food was not great. I had the Steak Frites and it came out room temperature/cold. The presentation of dead-looking fries sprinkled with parmesan was disappointing. My friend had the Short Rib and was shocked by the small portion. My other friend had the pasta which was tasty, but again, not a large portion. Their air-conditioning was not working, so the restaurant was incredibly hot and we felt bad for our server who was running around in the heat. I'm sure that will be fixed soon. Overall, lovely space, great wines, excellent service. Just need to work on the food.

    The food was very good, service as well. It was a slow night, Half price bottles of wine before 6pm and all day on Tues. Atmosphere very welcoming, Our waiter kind of disappeared toward the end of our stay and another server took over. No explanation. Thought it a little strange.

    This place is slipping. Food was unremarkable, lacking flavor. Every dish I tasted out of 8-dining I'm my party. Nothing was 'bad', but I found myself disappointed having brought my entire family here. Really not the same place it was when it opened. Only bonus is half price wine on Tuesdays.

    Second visit to Napa and left slightly disappointed with the kitchen this round. Ordered mussels and fondue trio. The fondue cheese was delicious however the mussels were off. The quality and taste were awful. They took them off the bill so they did the right thing. My salmon was delicious! My son's steak was ordered without the chimichurri sauce but was brought out with it on. Server caught it and took it back to the kitchen. Returned a minute earlier with is scraped off but not entirely. Desserts were delicious! Maple bourbon bread pudding should not be missed. The apple crisp was great too however too hot to eat so took it home. Kitchen was off but we love the environment and the excellent service! Great cocktails and wine selection!!

    This was our first time dining at Napa Kitchen and it was wonderful! The flavors and freshness of my salmon dish were amazing! Everyone in our group enjoyed their meal. It seemed a little pricy at first, but I’m OK with paying a little more for a great dining experience, which we had!

    3 of 4 meals were good. The fourth app was good salad good but chicken sandwich was not. The server noticed and manager came over to ask why sandwich was not eaten. He offered to replace it a no charge and provided a $20 gift card. Our friend thanked the manager for bringing it up because he was not going to. Impressed how this was handled when no complaint was made.
