My family and I met here for a special get together. They were waiting at the bar when I arrived and they were very happy with their starter cocktails from Jackie & Cara. Logan was our server for dinner and she was top notch throughout. All our dishes were amazing, the shrimp gnocchi, veal, and salmon especially. We had the best time and definitely worth the trip.

Atte a very late lunch when many area restaurants had closed after 2:30. It was wonderful. The shrimp and gnocchi appetizer was great. The fragrance lured me into the dish and the taste made me a regular. I will definitely order it again.

Food was great and wine list has lots of California variety. However, a bit overpriced especially for the cabs. The service was NOT impressive. One bartender was very helpful, the other seemed overwhelmed, frazzled and did not check back with us after ordering. Our server rarely came back to the table so we sat for over 30min waiting for the check, which even then we had to ask for. Overall would not recommend simply based on poor service and inconsistency

Out of two wines shown on menu, but did substitute. They were also out of the scallops which was the dish I based my decision on selecting Napa to dine at. Overall it was ok.

I think I would, although I still think I lost a credit car there, perhaps between the benchseat and the wall. could not find it, staff could not find it. The have been quite responsive when I have called, though it is still lost.

The food was good but our server was more interested in chatting up the hostess than taking care of our table. Everything was so slow. Two hours for a birthday lunch with only one main per customer is too slow. Ten minutes to come back and tell us that the dessert we ordered for our friend’s birthday wasn’t available and then another ten minutes to deliver it was the final slight

We had a new waiter who never checked on us after the meal was served. It was my birthday and the check in person was going to tell the waiter. Never an acknowledgement. Wine we ordered was out of stock and he told us to have a back up in case it was out. No recommendation. Was very disappointed over all

Thank you to Napa on Providence who made our daughters 17th birthday very special. We of course ordered too much food. The charcuterie board, shrimp gnocchi, meatballs and fig pizza were great as always. Then they brought out special flourless chocolate cake, which was delicious. Thank you and definitely worth the drive from Lake Norman. It’s that reliable and the outdoor patio is just so lovely.

Used to be our favorite restaurant in Charlotte. $49 for a quarter inch thick Food Lion steak embalmed in salt. My teenage football player would not even eat it. I am sure for $49 you could get a beautiful steak at their other restaurant in town. Made reservations on open table; we were told that the server was not communicating so we waited for 40 minutes to get our “reserved” table. Sad how far it has fallen in a few years. Would no longer recommend

Extremely loud. Allowed three large parties to basically overwhelm the dining room on a Friday night so it was too loud to hear and talk at your own table. Because of the large tables service was distracted and overwhelmed and not able to balance the smaller tables. Food is good but over priced for what you get and flat breads are inconsistent visit to visit so do not expect what you got the last time and loved to be what you get the next time due to changes in produce etc. It would be better if the restaurant simply had a line item for “seasonal flatbreads” and spared customers the agony of looking for the same margarita flatbread they ordered on the last visit only to find a hunk of dough with oversized slices of beefsteak tomato on top in place of sweet roasted cherry tomatoes. A drastic difference visit to visit for the same menu line item.

Not good on a crowded night for dinner was better for brunch.

The outdoor patio was the place I wanted to stay the whole day. The service was stellar: they came when you needed them, they did not rush us out the door. The food was plated beautifully and very good. My coffee was delicious. My only complaint was the bernaise sauce on my perfectly poached eggs was missing a 'bite'. Maybe more lemon?

My wife and I had dinner at Napa on September 6 followed up by lunch on Saturday, September 7. Surprisingly both experiences were disappointing. I would say we've enjoyed quality meals at Napa 50 times over the last few years and consider one of our prized destination points until his last two meals. For dinner my wife ordered a lobster pasta which was marginal at best. For 30+ dollars I felt the pasta came out of a Kraft box with chewy lobster. I ordered a salmon salad. It was okay but the salmon was overcooked. Saturday's lunch was even more disappointing. My wife ordered chicken and waffles. The waffles were a bit chewy and to "cakey". The chicken was overcooked. I ordered the smoke salmon Cobb salad. I felt like I was eating cat food. This was a very uncharacteristic display of poor food only 18 hours apart. I hope this isn't a trend…

Great happy hour specials but some of the happy hour menus were actually not recommended by the waiter... thought that was odd. Actually told that one of them was awful.
