Service was a little slow, but understandable due to the shortage of servers in the area. Our server was delightful and the restaurant tried their best to provide service with ‘all hands on deck’!

The food was delicious. Unfortunately the service was not good. She seemed to disappear and rarely checked on us. There were very few tables filled with guests so I'm not sure what the problem was. She rarely smiled nor was she apologetic for the wrong food that was brought to our table. She misunderstood my friend, so we had to wait again for the second dish. It seemed like there were only 6 tables of people and the food took exceptionally long. I know there are issues due to covid and finding help. We will try again. I probably will try again before I recommend it.

We had to send back an overcooked steak, which the manager was very rude about. The waiter was not attentive, and repeatedly had to flag down other staff to request drinks, and other items. I don’t usually write reviews or send things back at restaurants, but if I am paying 45 dollars for a 6 oz fillet it should at the minimum be cooked to the requested temperature, and asking for that should not be met with an eye roll and asking “What do you THINK is wrong with it?” With that being said, the other food was good and the hostess and bartender were both very nice and accommodating.

Great Sunday brunch buffet! Good variety and food was at appropriate temperature. Buffet is now serve yourself instead of the staff serving you from behind the line.

The food and staff at Napa Grill were exceptional. Our table was round and large enough for all of us to feel comfortable, yet able to talk to one another. We were a bit concern as first time in 15 months were together, but definitely will go back. Went early for Happy Hour and some ordered off that menu; others the dinner menu.

Service was unusually bad. It was difficult to get a drink or water refill. We also had a hard time getting the check after our meal. The goat cheese appetizer was pretty good. The pork entree was pretty tough. It was also spicy, but not great flavor. The recommended dessert (brownie sundae) was below average. The homemade ice cream was good, but the brownie was cool and somewhat dried out. I will likely not dine here again.

Overall a good brunch experience. I did feel we were discouraged from ordering the eggs benedict or omelet and were directed to the buffet egg option(s). Our server had difficulty handling the drink orders timely so in retrospect I think they were managing their workload in the way they presented the option. Buffet was very good and had a diverse selection of items that seemed fair for the price.

We made reservations in advance for a Birthday Celebration...we were seated at a large table, 3 feet from the plates on the buffet line. Loud and absolutely ZERO privacy

Our group went through the line and had some fruit and a little nibble, expecting to return to the line. As we were getting up to stand in the line RIGHT NEXT TO OUR TABLE a bus must have pulled up. The line was literally to the back wall, and down the hall past the restrooms.

There were 7 of us, and one did not even eat as she was late. We did not have time to stand in the line for our actual brunch.

We have always enjoyed Nappa, and I understand times are strange, however, this was unfair to my family and we likely will not return as we paid $200 and I had to make sandwiches as soon as we got home

The service was wonderful!! The food was very good but, the prices were a bit high. I was told that the Pad Thai was not too spicy but, it was for me. The waiter was very accommodating & brought me the halibut, which was very good but, like I have already said, a bit toooooooo pricey as was my husband’s triple plate of tuna, salmon & halibut.
