Nothing terribly wrong here, but in a city with hundreds of great options, it was over-priced and nothing special.

I met a friend here when we both remembered NVG from years past as a convenient and tasty option for dining in Westwood. It did not disappoint. Great for both lunch and dinner, stylish without being pretentious, pricey without being ridiculous. We both had the local seabass (Santa Barbara) which was super fresh even though I rarely order fish on Sunday. We were seated on the patio which is nice on a hot summer evening. Wait staff was pleasant without being intrusive. They've been around forever but it doesn't seem to have slowed their roll.

The service was good. Their menu is also good. The tables are close so it’s difficult to have a quiet conversation. They offer valet parking which is a huge plus in Westwood Los Angeles. Overall a nice place to dine.

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary at Napa Valley Grille last Monday, and we were so pleased with the quality of the food, the service, and the ambiance of this lovely restaurant. It was just a perfect evening. My husband had the branzino, which he raved about, and I, a lover of fish and red meat, chose the Jidori chicken, on the server’s recommendation. OMG, it was honestly the most tender, moist, wonderful chicken entree I could ever hope for, and it was covered in delicious roasted mushrooms with a lovely chicken jus. Ahhh, perfection. I would return there anytime just to order this amazing chicken!
We had a lovely bread pudding for dessert, with Happy Anniversary spelled out in chocolate on the plate. Another nice touch.
The wine list was great, too. All in all, I couldn’t ask for more in a dining experience.

The perfect spot for my brunch! Loved the chicken liver Pate toast followed by the sear tuna salad. Yummy flourless chocolate cake was the perfect end. I chose to have the $44 Prix Fixe menu which included bottomless mimosa or Bloody Mary.

Not only is the food always cooked to perfection. But all the managers are excellent. At least one of them always comes to our table with a smile and a friendly greeting. Even the bus boys are attentive.

Great location and nice menu. My food was well prepared. However, the condition of the restaurant patio is memorably poor. The table was stained with grease marks. The glass door was opaque with finger prints and the wine glass was etched with scratches. Time to remodel.

I made a special effort to visit this restaurant again after a super dining experience in March. The experience this time was horrible. The service ( Alex, the server, in particular) was the worst that I have endured in a very longtime. The food items were still tasty and creative but we could not enjoy the food in light of the terrible service. Would take a special occasion hosted at this location by a friend to get me to visit again. Tooo bad, because my first experience was phenomenal.

I am not a recommendat to above all list. I was going for this Napa valley Restaurant countless times, every time I felt this restaurant is getting worse. Food quality are getting bad. Always, I like to recommend to the my guests an Ordered most expenses a meal. However, I am so embarrassed with my clients. It is not worth for last meals for 3 people's a sum of over $300.00. I am so regret that have dinner at Napa valley Restaurant. They came from the oversea a client's. I was so embarrassed.

Four of us had lunch at the Napa Valley Grille and all the food, from the French toast to the quinoa bowl was fantastic. We weren’t hurried, the staff were attentive, and overall, it was a great experience. Not a hip environment, somewhat like a good hotel bar and restaurant in ambiance with booths and tables, but don’t let that put you off. Varied menu for all tastes and diets. Highly recommend.

We went for a birthday lunch with family. Nice spacious table for 5. It was Saturday brunch and the menu had some interesting and diverse choices. Make sure you get their coffee cake if they offer it - it’s amazing!

It took about 10 minutes to get acknowledged by our waiter, but after that everything went smoothly. Good iced tea, excellent curry chicken wrap, and fantastic little salad that came with it. Waiter did stop by to ask how everything was, and the iced tea was refilled timely. No loud music, which was great - nothing more annoying than loud music when conducting a business meeting. Nice and quite for lunch - will definitely go back for lunch or dinner.
