We were there to celebrate an engagement. Our server, Patrick, was awesome. The grilled shrimp over risotto was delicious.

the mixed greens on the salad were wilted and slimy. They need to keep on top of that. I hate to give them a terrible review bc the service was great and I love the ambiance. I’ve always enjoyed my meals here. This was a first, but after returning my salad once, the second salad was still not up to par. The chef came out and apologized - which I really appreciate. Maybe they need to switch vendors. Anyway, it was disappointing.

Having been to Napa Kitchen + Bar in the past and had great experiences, my expectations were high. I was very disappointed this time. Our reservation was not ready on time. Our server was neglectful and unfriendly. The food was not as good as I remember in the past. I was never given a wine list other than the main menu, and I was disappointed that the selection of wines by the glass was not very large. I do love the atmosphere at Napa, but overall it was a let down this time.

Before starting the review, I have very reasonable expectations for food and service when going out to eat. I don't expect the world. That said, our warm brie appetizer took 25 minutes to come to the table. Slightly long for an appetizer, but we weren't in a rush. 3 of the 4 entrees that were ordered were brought to the table in a reasonable amount of time and we were told the last one would be out shortly, expecting it to be out in 1-2 minutes. It came to the table 10-12 minutes later, clearly the kitchen forgot to make the dish. 2 of the original 3 entrees came out cold, 1 of them being a steak that was ordered medium-rare and came out medium-well/well done. Not certain how a well done steak is served cold... The kitchen remade the 2 cold dishes, which we waited another 20 minutes (seemed like they weren't expedited) only to have the steak entree & sides come out cold AGAIN and overcooked AGAIN. The waitress rarely stopped by to let us know when to expect our food and when she did stop by, she asked if the Manager had talked to us, he hadn't. She must have had to remind him again because the Manager finally came over later in the meal and explained how sorry he was for the food and left as quick as he could. We decided that we'd still order 2 desserts for the table since we were celebrating a birthday, but after 30 minutes of waiting and the waitress nowhere to be found we decided we had had enough. We canceled the desserts and we left. Great service and great food makes for a great dining experience. This experience had neither. Hopefully they can turn it around and provide a better dining experience for others but I will not be returning.

Liked this place so much we brought our friends. One star deduction on service because I wasn’t asked if I wanted another drink and only had one cocktail the entire evening with a dinner party of 8.

Service was excellent. Food was good, wine nice.
The noise level was high, and furniture was more about look than comfort.

From the time I walked in the door I felt as if I was being paid attention to. I sat at the bar, I was greeted by Ashley, she made me feel very welcomed. Her bubbly attitude was refreshing and made It easy for me to ask questions. I tried the short ribs, by recommendation. To say they did not disappoint is an understatement. The entire dish was AMAZING! I added a side of brussel sprouts, truly delectable! I am looking forward to my next visit already.

Late Valentine’s Day celebration! Couldn’t have gone better. Every stage of our meal came out in a timely manner and tasted perfect. Both ordered filets- cooked exactly how requested. Super attentive manager, made the experience truly delightful! 10/10 would reccommend.

Believe this is our third time to Napa Kitchen. Service was excellent, very attentive but not over whelming. Food was just ok this time. Pasta was way over seasoned and the steak frites was just ok. I also wish they would mix up the wine flights. Pretty sure they are the same since they opened, which my whole point in getting flights is to try new stuff.

This was our second visit to Napa Wine Kitchen. Love the decor and the atmosphere. However both times the food has been nothing special and both times have ended up being seated in the long bench with parties of four on either side of us. If there is a third time, will definitely request a private table however with all the great dining options available, I don’t see a return visit in our future.

We arrived and were quickly greeted with a welcoming smile. The greeter escorted us to a great window table where Michelle came by to introduce herself then went about providing exemplary service. Our service was attentive and not rushed. Food presentation and flavors was outstanding. The restaurant continued to fill up creating a great atmosphere for an enjoyable experience. This was our first visit and we will definitely be back!

Surprised there wasn’t a vegetarian or vegan option on the menu. I got a flatbread, which was great, but I had hoped for more for a Valentines dinner.

OpenTable needs to update their online menu for Napa. It showed a mahi mahi dish, which is the primary reason that I chose this restaurant. Mahi mahi is not on the menu...

So it was my friends bday and our server was new. She disappeared a fair bit to the point where everyone’s drinks were empty. She also couldn’t answer questions on the wine when you are “Napa” kitchen. I don’t mind new (it’s on the restaurant for not training her on how to speak to the main wine menu) but please don’t disappear. My friend was welcomed with a happy birthday by the hostesses which was sweet and the food was tasty.
