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.

Menu options were disappointing (no chicken). When we inquired about this, our server was short with us.

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 awesome. The only complaint I had was the guy that put food on my plate for the Sunday brunch did not have on gloves and his beard was hanging from his mask.

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!

Server was annoyed for some reason and we only had a party of 4. Not sure what we did but he did not provide a very enjoyable experience. Expect better at a restaurant of this caliber. Been there before and had had much better service and experiences. So hoping this isn't a reflection on restaurant's future and/or current management.

We try to go to one restaurant in the Louisville/Southern Indiana area of this calibre once per week. Of the 10 or so we’ve been to recently Napa is near the bottom. My daughter had a lobster pasta special that was bland. I had a porterhouse special that was not seasoned at all. My wife had a vegetable pasta and also wasn’t impressed. We paid a little more than comparable places and were less pleased than anywhere else. It was ok, but we have a long list of places on here that are 5 of 5 for us to go to instead.

My wife and I were very disappointed in the food and service here. The caesar's salad I ordered was the worst tasting one I've ever had and I could barely eat a bit of it and it was taken off our bill. The quail was average but stuffed with a spicy concoction on the inside. My wife's burger was cooked medium rare rather than medium as she requested. Parts inside were very pink. The service wasn't too good. Our server wasn't overly friendly and I had to ask her to refill my water glass.

For the $88 dollar bill for two, we definitely won't be back.

The Sunday brunch buffet is pricey but worth every Penny.
The buffet staff did a great job serving us to provide a covid safe experience.
Unfortunately our server was not very organized and did not check on us. We had to flag her down every time we needed something. They were not exceptionally busy but she seemed distracted.
Also an automatic tip of 20% was added for our party of six and I hope that she had to share that.
