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.

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.

The quality of food has greatly declined since I last ate here. Portions are very small for the price. My branzino was drowning in butter. The charcuterie board was sad: 2 tiny pieces of cheese and slice of prosciutto, but, plenty of bread. I definitely will not return.

Since its remodel a few years ago, the food and service (particularly the service) has been excellent..And on salads, for example, they have half-size servings. (This is my stop before a performance at the Geffen Playhouse so I don't want or need a ton of food.) And they're not completely hung up on Napa Valley wines (not a fan) - for my taste , they offer a good Italian red.

Excellent food with an outstanding waitress (Kat). First visit for the three of us, and we each ordered different entres so that we could sample. The food was quite good, with a better than average wine list. Although we got lucky and found street parking, I would recommend using the valet vs trying to fight the crowded street parking in Westwood.

We will definitely be back!

I hadn't been here in a couple of years and suggested it as a place to meet a business associate for lunch. It was as good as I remember. My friend is vegan and the waiter made some great suggestions for her. I had the pesto chicken salad which was delicious and generous. Service was great and the restaurant has a nice, professional business vibe.

This restaurant has great atmosphere and coolness to it as it swanky and modern in today's trendy standards. The food was Delicious...highlighting the appetizers as the best with the cold fresh oysters, the slow roasted tomato & basil flatbread and Charcuterie & Cheese board. Yummy! It was a busy night with many large Graduation parties going on however it was unnoticed by us as service was prompt and acceptable. Not exactly flawless but all of our guests loved everything and that is what matters. Thank you for making our evening a great success!

Have eaten here often when visiting our daughter @UCLA. Saturday’s experience was well below par. The host was not at all welcoming ( we had a reservation) and appeared to be a little overwhelmed. Our appetizers arrived promptly and were great - meatballs, cheese and vegetable flatbread. Our entrees arrived just as we finished our appetizers but the table had not been cleared. We felt really rushed. We ordered wine to accompany the entrees but it wasn’t brought to the table until after we had finished eating. Apparently the bar was “slammed”. No excuse for a restaurant of this caliber and no apology. From this moment on we were invisible to our server. Our daughter had expressed an interest in the dessert menu but it never appeared. Our server briefly reappeared to give us our check - we were still waiting for the dessert menu!
He perked up somewhat when he saw our credit card. Will not be back.

Continue to enjoy Napa Valley Grille's environment, food and service ahead of going to the theater. Service was a little slower because of UCLA graduations, but we appreciated not being hurried out either as they worked to accommodate large volumes of patrons.

Napa Valley Grille - Westwood is a cute place with great service and a pleasant ambiance. The food is very good. We were there for lunch, and all meals were "just fine." For the area, the pricing is appropriate, but my sense was that the pricing was slightly higher than it might have been (nothing significant; just a bit). Everyone was friendly and most professional. I recommend it!
