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

Soup was not hot and salad had ingredients I had asked about due to food sensitivities. Prices too high for the quality.

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.

Our party of six were seated at a large round table, safely distanced from other diners. Overall the food and service were very good It was a buffet but we were served by the staff. It was a pleasant meal and surroundings. We’ve eaten there before and will do it again.

It was our anniversary and when making the reservation I made sure to include the special occasion. No one acknowledged, asked or even acted on it. Kind of a let down.

For the most part it was good. Would like the option of turkey bacon, turkey sausage or an impossible sausage being added to the menu. If you serve bacon, sausage, pork tenderloin... there is no sense in putting bacon in everything else (i.e. the hashbrown casserole and/or the hot brown casserole. The mimosas were strong, but they were extra stingy with pours.

Salad was wilted. Menu much abbreviated. High prices for what was offered. Half empty but poor service!!! No more cornbread offered. Don’t mind paying for bread but mediocre at best. Used to be a favorite to attend. Will not be back!

The food was just not the usual awesome food I am used to from Napa. It’s been a little while since I’ve eaten here, so maybe it’s gone down hill? What happened to the awesome parmesan bowl the Caesar salad used to come in... now it’s just a parmesan cracker on top. Overall something was just missing last night... wasn’t horrible but not what I remember.

It was my first experience eating indoors at a restaurant since the pandemic started. I felt comfortable with their setup. I was there with my sister and a friend, celebrating my friend’s birthday. Everything was perfect. We had a wonderful evening.

Went there during Louisville restaurant week. We had a drink outside in the courtyard before dinner and the ambiance was so nice. We both had a prix fixe menu item. I got the salmon, which was done perfectly, but could have used a bit of sauce. Potatoes were good and the side of seasoned vegetables were so flavorful! The mini desserts were a nice touch and really tasty! The husband had short rib lasagna and he said it was very tender and good.

Service was excellent and it was a most enjoyable dinner!
