Amazing service! We brought one of our friends who only consumes gluten and dairy free food was able to enjoy the gluten/dairy free pasta that the waiter suggested. He was pleased. Appetizers were prepared to perfection!

We were told over the phone that corkage would be waived for one bottle bought. They charged us corkage even though we bought a bottle. The owner told us that they are in the business to sell wine. He was not accommodating and was not friendly. Made for a bad experience. Even if we were charged for corkage, his manner of communicating was poor. We are locals and come to the restaurant fairly often. We will be cancelling our next reservation, which is in a few weeks.

Overall an ok experience. The food was plated nicely, portions are fine, neither big nor small. Decor is unremarkable.. Cost seems to be on the pricey side though, and the staff actually charged us for chiles to perk up the pasta dishes. To pay $4.00 for less than a thimbleful of chiles is incredibly stingy. It's for this reason we will not be going back when there are many other excellent choices in Napa.

Was an amazing experience. Five of us went for a get together. Our server Cindy was absolutely incredible. She made sure we chose the rights things for us and the right portions. We are all vegetarians and she was able to help us select off the menu with whatever variations we needed. Our food arrived quickly. The drinks, appetizers, entree and dessert all arrived at the right pace. All the food was outstanding. Every dish was delicious. Of special note was the potato pizza with chili oil, fried cauliflower side and the chocolate panecotta. The entire waitstaff was polite and attentive.

Will definitely go again

Food was great as always. It was very hot and stuffy throughout the evening, a restaurant with that level of cuisine and service should really have air conditioning. I am local and love the food and cocktails but will not come back until the weather cools down.

Party of 4.
Ordered salads, appetizer, pizza and dinner entrees.
Salads took a little while, but then no food showed up.
After an hour, staff recognized there was an issue.
Pizza showed up 20 minutes later and then our meals about a half hour after that.

The food was good, especially the pizza, but it is apparent that something happened to delay our meals.

My advice to the service staff is to just be honest and communicate. The frustration continued to rise when we did not get our food or have the feeling that anyone cared. We know there will be issues, especially now, but keeping the customers informed will reduce frustration and hopefully make for a better experience.

When we arrived, we were seated at an outdoor table for two in the walkway to the large tented area (even though I had specified in my reservation notes that we were celebrating my husbands’ birthday.) We asked the hostess if we could please be moved to a table under the tent, and were told we would have to get up and sit on a bench while we waited, or we would have to wait much longer if we wanted to stay at the current table in the meantime. We decided to stay at our table in the meantime and ordered glasses of wine. We were seated at the new table under the tent before they arrived, and agreed that our new table was much nicer. We would have liked the option to wait a few more minutes to sit at a nicer table under the tent, before assuming we wanted to sit in the pathway.

We ordered two salads, which were served fairly quickly and were very good. However, it was over an hour before we were served our main dishes (my husband ordered pasta and I ordered tuna). All in all, the food was good, not great, and the service was just not what we were expecting of a restaurant with such positive reviews.

Slow service. Took forever to get our drinks. Food was unimpressive. Not even close to bib gourmand worthy. Starting to think the whole Michelin rating is just nonsense. Far from a good Italian restaurant. No ravioli? No tortellini? Where’s the lombata? No veal? Very limited menu. I personally would never go back but at least I can say I tried it.

We live in Napa and Oenotri has always been our favorite restaurant. We were there for dinner tonight, I brought my parents who are here visiting from the East Coast for the first time since 2019. It was my mother's first time dining out since 2019 and Oenotri has perfectly spaced outdoor seating to help ease her back into a normal routine. The hostess went above and beyond to help us feel as comfortable as possible. We had the perfect table. We are so grateful. Thanks so much. We will be back soon.

Oenotri is a gem among gems. The level of excellence is so high - service, ambience, the food! My favorite restaurant in the Napa Valley 8 years running. Every meal is memorable and distinctive. Pizza, pasta, seafood, meat, amazingly fresh vegetable dishes and yummy desserts - it's the whole package.

We pretty much put away the menus and let the waiter do the ordering of food and the wine selection. It was extremely enjoyable from the first course to the dessert. I will definitely return!!

The food was good. Homemade pasta was very tasty and filling. The service was pretty poor. No personality. Rude when asked about recommendations for wine. Upset when we asked for translation of Italian lingo. Not accommodating to one in our party who was vegetarian. Super unimpressed with the service across the board. Food is not worth the bad service.

Wow. Where to start. Reservation for 8:15 pm; waited 30 min to be seated. Jammed 5 of us into a 4 top. Very very noisy- Could not hear people across the table from each other. Bread costs extra. While the pasta was very good and the pizza crust was great, the pasta portions were small and devoid of any substantial protein (even the dish made with short ribs- the meat completely(?) melted into the sauce or was removed). Two personal pizzas and three pasta dishes with one beer, two glasses of wine one soda and bread was over $300.
Not worth it unfortunately.

The cocktails, appetizers, wine, and dessert were quite good. I ordered the duck and it was over-cooked as was another order of duck at our table. It was still tender but would have been much better if properly cooked. My wife ordered the beef short-rib pasta, which had a very good flavor, but only came with one small piece of meat. In addition to the small issues with the meals, the speed of the service was very slow. We had reservations at 6:15 and didn't get out of there until 9:40. The ambiance and overall environment made up for the slow service, but it would have been a problem had we had plans afterward. Overall, it was a very nice evening with good friends and good food.

Everything we ordered was absolutely delicious! From the mixed green salad, pappardelle, short ribs to the life changing pizza were all incredibly scrumptious! Great service overall. Sommelier made a fantastic recommendation that completely elevated our dining experience. I can gush about this place all day long. Do yourself a favor and make that reservation!

This place was recommended by a local. We are from New Orleans so we have high standards for food. Our waiter was awesome! The sommelier who helped us pick a wine and then sell us 4 bottles was awesome! The food was awesome and all made in house! My only complaint is that is was a little hot in the restaurant, but overall an excellent expirneve!
