My sister, brother-in-law, and I decided to try Napa for a Saturday brunch, and it was a HIT! We started with the charcuterie board, which had 3 different hummus choices, 4 or 5 excellent cheeses, some delicious apricot spread, and veggies. Two of us shared a bottle of prosecco, while another had the red wine flight. All were excellent choices. The French onion soup was also a good choice. The wine selection is extensive, and we walked out with 2 or 3 bottles of wine, which were half-price. Our server Robert was attentive, friendly, and helpful. We will be returning to Napa.

Thought we were trying a new restaurant, and realized it was just a re-brand of the Wine Bistro. That isn’t a bad thing, since we always enjoyed it. They added some extra dividers between the bar area and dining area, so noise level has definitely improved. Spare ribs still a favorite, and service was good as usual!

The food, service, and atmosphere were quite enjoyable. I love the option of being able to select wine from either their menu or select one off the shelf. Best part is 1/2 priced bottles of wine on Tuesdays.

This used to be The Wine Bistro, and changed over to Napa Kitchen. My husband and I had been to the Dublin location several times and enjoyed it, so we were looking forward to going to a closer location. We had an early reservation, so they weren’t busy, but was not impressed with the food or the service, which were both disappointing.

Great food, great service and even better food. Thankfully the owners didn't veer too far off course from the Wine Bistro. There ambience remains reminiscent of Wine Bistro with expanded menu, liquors, and wine options.

From the warm greeting to letting us know they look forward to seeing us again as we left, our experience at Napa Kitchen and Bar couldn’t have been better. The manager was quick to greet us and he made sure everything was to our liking. Our server, Jason, was incredibly accommodating and was ready to handle any question about the menu and wine list. The food arrived quickly and exactly as ordered. Everything was delicious and the only complaint I have is that after having such generous portions, I didn’t have room for dessert!

We went for our anniversary. In making our reservation we didn’t realize it would not give us a seat on their patio so we were very disappointed. Then the host told us they only had one table left on the patio but it was for someone who had a reservation - which was a bit confusing since we also had a reservation but could not sit outside? His attitude for our request was nonchalant - didn’t offer to have us wait to see if anyone was leaving soon, etc. We took a seat inside.
Server was pleasant - took our order and told us it was 1/2 price off a bottle of wine Tuesday. We both drink Cabernets so ordered from the list we were given. It was listed as “Quilt”. Even though it was listed as coming from Napa Valley - this wine was not worthy of California wine. It had no layers and would not even be considered as a table wine. When the server came back I asked her if the 1/2 price applied just to what was on the printed list or any of the wines in the shop...she said any wine but had not told us that when we ordered.
Now the meal - since my husband and I had been to Wine Bistro previously I was pleased to see many items still on their menu. We ordered crab cakes appetizer, short ribs and a pepperoni flatbread. Without going into detail - I wish I had stayed home and cooked. Crab cakes were mostly filler and entrees were mediocre. Overall we paid our bill, tipped our server and said - “Well - it’s our 13th wedding anniversary so I guess that’s what we get for it being the 13th.”
No one at the restaurant did anything wrong - there are just too many other places to go where the food is exceptional for the same money to go back to Napa Kitchen.

Was concerned with the rebranding from Wine bistro to Napa Kitchen and Bar but didn't need to be ... same great ambience, staff, menu choices and now a FULL bar. Plus anytime you get Zoe for waitstaff, it's a good day!!

Soup and salads were great, wine was fantastic. My partner ordered the fettuccine del mare which had lobster, shrimp, peas, and mushrooms over pasta with a cream sauce I believe. It came highly recommended by the waiter, but according to my partner it was very obviously not fresh. The lobster and shrimp and even peas tasted like freezer burn, and he said the mushrooms were definitely canned. My chicken was pretty good, but I don’t believe it was a $100+ meal that we spent.

Enjoyed our meal and date night at Napa Kitchen & Bar. Food was excellent from the Humus trio as an appetizer to the entrees (pork chop and steak & frites). Service was excellent the only "challenge" was that we got seated in the bar at a high top and the traffic was a little bit of an issue for our intended quiet date night (dining room would have been preferred but we took what was available when we arrived early for our reservation). We look forward to returning in the coming weeks.

The changes made to NAPA in the switch from Wine Bistro are an upgrade. The wine selection is still good. There are some new menu items and desserts added . . . key lime pie and a special cheesecake.

There was plenty of space between parties, and the social distancing/masks were being closely followed. We felt very comfortable and enjoyed our first outing to a restaurant in quite a few weeks.
