2 couples out for a pleasant dinner. The atmosphere and food are great. It’s also in a great location. The service was a bit slow but not terrible. I think like so many other places, short staff contributes and we were not in a rush so we enjoyed the extra time and conversation. Everyone was friendly and worked to make our dinner great.

Our server was very friendly and was "feeling spiffy", which made for a fun evening. The food was good but my wife's chicken was a little overcooked.

I had the wedge salad, crabcake sandwiches, and fries. Salad was crisp & tasty. Crabcakes were tiny but delicious. Fries were well seasoned and fried to perfection.

Food and wine selection was very good and our waiter, Justin, was fantastic. My only minor negative is the noise level was pretty high but that's probably more indicative of the bigger party near us. We enjoyed our visit and will definitely consider returning

1st time to Napa and won't be the last. There were 5 of us for dinner and we were seated in a private area inside the restaurant. Everyone had a terrific dinner and my grilled shrimp and risotto dish was delicious! Will visit again!

The food was fantastic. There were 6 of us and we had several appetizers - prosciutto wrapped shrimp, a cheese board, and a fondue trio, all delicious. We had a variety of entrees too, the beef short rib was especially good. Service was very prompt and friendly. Overall great experience.

We were a party of seven, our first time to Napa Kitchen.
We were seated immediately, at the time of our reservation. The service was outstanding and the food delicious.
I loved the decor, it was def reminiscent of a wine bar, but tastefully done.
The tables are situated so that each party has privacy.
The cost was as expected for nice dining.
It is not a place for children.
I highly recommend Napa Kitchen and the server Theresa.

The service matches the quality of the food and the wine selection. Having been twice now in the last month or so (during COVID times) I could not recommend soaking in a little slice of Napa here in Cincinnati. They are Gluten/Dairy/Allergen Free Friendly and Vegan/Veg friendly. Stop in and I bet when you leave you'll feel the same way I do about Napa Kitchen + Bar!

We were there for a bachelorette party and were obviously looking to have fun and drink some wine. Our server was wonderful and suggested a couple different wines. She brought out our options for us to taste before deciding. The food was great although one person requested no mushrooms but got them anyway and another ordered her steak medium rare and half of it was definitely rare. We will be back.LOVE the atmosphere and feel of the place.

It was okay. Ordered a cocktail that just tasted off. The waitress had this corrected. Food was typical. My companion enjoyed her selection more than I did. I ordered the mushroom flatbread that had far too much cheese on it and this is coming from someone who loves cheese. I also love mushrooms so hardly tasted them due to the cheese overload. Would not dissuade someone from trying but probably will not be back.

Theresa was a great waitress. Friendly and efficient. No rush on Mother’s Day dinner. We are light eaters but like to enjoy our meal. PERFECT. The tomato basil soup was chunky basil delicious. I had strawberry chicken salad. Very tasty. My husband enjoyed his crab cake. We will return

We waited so long to get glasses for our wine it was ridiculous then we waited forever for another glass of wine and we also waited forever for bread and then our food. We were there for an hour and a half before we got any food. It wasn’t that crowded either. I will not go back.

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.
