Four of us had dinner for Valentine’s Day. We each had a different dish and they were all outstanding! We will definitely be back. Enjoyed some outstanding cocktails too. Our waitress was informative and friendly.

We had a delightful date night and a delicious meal. The menu was varied and the two meals we ordered were delicious, plentiful, but not over facing. We started with the Corn-Meal Crusted Calamari which was yummy and a nice glass of wine. I had the sea bass special and my husband had a lobster scampi. We finished the meal with the fig ricotta tart. It was expensive, but we would definitely go back for a special occasion. The service was excellent and servers were friendly.

As usual, Sunday brunch was great! We love it because there is a wide choice of both breakfast and lunch items.

My wife and I both had the filet and it was excellent. Atmosphere is better for groups as the seating didn’t seem to accomodate couples as much. Good service and recommendations from staff.

I would normally and have in the past, recommended your restaurant. This day, the service was slow. But since we all were enjoying our conversation, that was not such a big problem. However, the cornbread dish brought to the table was very dry and hard. We have all been there previously and loved the cornbread enough to ask for additional servings. This time, it was not good enough to even finish, so we asked another server about the difference and explained the problem with it. She said there had been no changes to the dish. I then had the Kentucky cordon bleu sandwich as my main course. I could not even chew the ham in the sandwich and had to separate and eat it piecemeal. Also, the fried chicken thigh was greasy.
Now all this being said, I will try your restaurant again, but did want you to know that the three of us on Friday, February 9th, were disappointed. We have all been big fans of your restaurant in the past--no previous complaints at all.

Always enjoy Napa. This time, last minute we weren’t able to get into two other restaurants on a Friday night, and in a head slapping moment we remembered to try Napa on Open Table .... with success. We should have started there as we always love the food and ambience and service. We seem to get the same server each time (Sandy) and he is great. We’ll go back.

Setting everyone right beside one another opposed to leaving a table or so between. Had a very loud lady sat diagonally and 2 right across from us. There were plenty other open tables for personal spacing. Waiter was great, food good but overpriced for a sandwich that was pretty thin at that. Very nice looking restaurant but they need to revisit the menu pricing for a lunch sandwich & amount served on it for that price.

Sandy was our waiter and he did a great job. Once he found out we were celebrating our anniversary he congratulated us many times and at the end of our meal brought out a desert that was to die for.

Family came for Christmas from MI, OH, PA with vegan, vegetarian, you name it expectations.
Your Sunday buffet meant everyone could eat to their hearts' content and when we left, each person remarked that the buffet had been excellent. You are a treasure for the city.

This was a last minute holiday dinner for work. We were very skeptical about returning to Napa after a previous poor experience. However, they redeemed themselves with food and service. We had a lovely experience. I hope the improvement continues.
