My best restaurant for meeting a friend for lunch.

I always, yes, always order the albacore tune salad. The dish if filled with lettuce; olives; heirloom tomatoes; beans and purple baby potatoes.

My friend usually has the kale salad with added chicken. Delish!

We order I/2 salad and can barely finish.

Our group had the sea bass, lamb and Filet. Everything was excellent, but it was really the service that made the night perfect. Carey was our server, and he was attentive yet unobtrusive. We all really liked him. I entertain clients a lot so dine in a lot of locations. Overall it was a great dinner, and I wouldn’t hesitate to bring guests here again.

We went to Napa Grille after an amazing art exhibition by Julio Ramos at Westwood Village Square.

Alex was our server and he was so much fun and incredibly attentive. The dishes were delicious, especially the pork chops and mashed potatoes!

I highly recommend going there after Julio’s show or a stroll through Westwood.

Three of the four of us were disappointed with the food. To make matters worse, our mains arrived while we were eating our starters. When the entrees were brought back mine was cool and it was meant to be a hot dish. I was not sending it back a second time.

Our server was a young man named Derek. He was very helpful and accommodating. We enjoyed the food and also did a flight tasting of wine. The wine was not spectacular, but was a good value. We would--and probably will return--and we will definitely ask for Derek,

Responded on March 3, 2020

Hi, Thanks for spending time on Derrick...we have two and the other 'Derek' just had twins!! This Derrick is a vital member of our staff and helps us manage when we are short or need an extra quality hand. And as you note, he is a terrific person!! Love that you all had a flight as well. We are soon to launch our Friday Night Flights Dinner where wine pairing with food will be the main thing. Hope to see you again soon!! Brian

Hi Linda, Thanks for the kind words. Want to mention as well for those coming from out of town that you are not only paying for the high quality food and service and decor but also for our living wage which is vital to our staff. LA will soon be at $15 hour and we feel that is a fair place to keep lifting the families who are a part of our staff.

We've eaten here a few times before a show at the Geffen Playhouse. It gets busy and can be noisy but still OK to talk and dine with friends. The Scallops are very good. Also the salmon. Flat bread pizzas and salads are a good combo to share since the pizza is large. A friend had the duck and thought it was a little dry. Wait staff is friendly and when I let our waiter know we had tickets for the Geffen he made sure we had plenty of time to walk back to the theater.

Napa Valley Grille - Westwood
Responded on March 3, 2020

We love our relationship with the Geffen!!! Know also you get a free dessert for two guests with tickets to the show. Just show us your tickets. We love our ability to support the arts locally. Westwood has so much to offer that way with the Geffen, the Hammer, the classic movie theaters and all of the happenings at UCLA. Always let us know if you have show or a movie to get to so we can better control the timing and your experience with us. Thanks, Brian

Happy Hour in the bar is ok and good value but the food in the dining room is pricey and unexciting.
Portions are not generous. The Caesar was boring - croutons that have been sitting around too long and definitely not grilled or roasted to order - dressing uninspired - ordinary in every respect. My prawns were cut in half (who does that???) so they were dry. Overall not a good value.

Napa Valley Grille is our "go to" restaurant when we visit The Geffen Theater. We are subscribers. This time, we were very disappointed. My husband ordered the watermelon soup and harvest roasted vegetables. The soup was just okay and the harvest roasted vegetables were an entire plate of onions (red and yellow) with very few other types of vegetables. Usually it is delicious. The server came up to us and clearly saw that the entire plate of vegetables were still on the plate. She said, are you done and my husband said yes, there were way too many onions. Did not say anything but picked up the plate and left.

Our low expectations were exceeded for a pre-theater dinner at Napa Valley Grille. We were seated in a booth next to a waiter station, and immediately felt the chaos of the enormous restaurant. Everything was hurriedly done, and there was audible tension between wait staff and the kitchen. We could hear the waiters loudly discussing, perhaps arguing about orders. It was incredibly difficult to enjoy our dining experience. The wait staff was so hurried, ours spilled my mostly full wine glass while clearing away a plate. The food was mediocre at best. The only good thing was getting out of there on time for our performance.

Very enjoyable but very few vegetarian choices which is surprising. No vegetarian pasta main dishes unless I missed something. I'm sure I could have asked that the meat be removed from one of the pasta dishes, but I think in today's food universe, at least a quarter of the choices should be vegetarian. And the forward-looking restaurants would include at least 1 vegan option.

Responded on February 18, 2020

Hello, We do have a few choices that are all together Vegan as well as vegetarian. In the restaurants of today, we all often achieve vegetarian by removing meat and dairy (for the vegan). It allows us to make sure we can afford to carry the products we need for our whole menu. Thanks for nice review. Brian

I always go to Napa Valley Grille practically every Saturday.

The Albacore tuna salad is my favorite as well as the kale salad. It comes with heirloom tomatoes, small purple and white beans, olives and hard boiled egg. The dressing is too delish.
