This was our first visit to Tarla, and overall it was enjoyable. Our server was very personable and related well to the children in our group. The food was delicious; we all enjoyed our dinner. However, the restaurant is quite noisy and cramped, which detracted a bit from the experience.

Tarla was wonderful in all regards. We had our one-day-delayed Valentine dinner and it was one of the best. We never stray from our favorites including the sparking wines. Service had a very few glitches from the previous day’s rush but we were well taken of. We met two couples for whom it was their first time at Tarla and they loved their food, as well.

It was Valentine's Day, so yes -- it was busy -- but not overwhelmingly for the amount of staff we saw. That said, the service was lackluster at best, and when we DID receive service -- it was rushed, with no time taken to see what our needs were (water??), nor check back on us anywhere between the time of dropping our meals, to dropping our check. The meal was okay, but certainly nothing off the charts.

Had a table in the back room with the glass wall. Not a good spot. They kept the kitchen door open the whole time. The noise echoed in the room. It was a bit hard to hear my Valentine.

This has been our go-to place whenever we catch a concert in Napa - the service is very good and the food is excellent. However, on this occasion, the noise level was punishingly loud and severely impacted our ability to enjoy our meal even with our favorite server. We had specifically asked not to be seated in the bar area (which is always loud based on previous experience), but they tried to sit us there having apparently not read our request on OpenTable. Once we got that sorted out, we ended up on a two-top in the dining area. The dining room is all hard surfaces, and the noise level was such we could barely hold a conversation across a small table. There are things to do to reduce the noise level, but we are finding more and more places where having it loud seems to be expected. Going forward, even after making a reservation, once we arrive we will be using SoundCheck on our phone to ensure the noise levels are safe.

That said, the octopus salad is always a highlight of our meal (although there seemed to be less octopus and more salad than before) and the main courses are excellent. I had the lamb kebabs and they were so tender a steak knife was unnecessary and my husband had the special ribeye which was lean and flavorful.

Can't recommend it at this time, but it's worth checking out on a quieter night.

Enjoyed a wonderful late lunch at Tarla. The food was delicious, and the service was great. We ordered the chicken Kabob, and salmon entrees, which we would definitely order again. I especially appreciated that the food was not highly salted or seasoned as is the case at a lot of other Mediterranean restaurants. We look forward to visiting Tarla again soon!

Tarla is a great choice for a moderate priced meal in downtown Napa. Good food and service, and we think their kunefe dessert is the best of all the Mediterranean/Turkish restaurants in the SF Bay Area!

Simple food done very well. Contrary to many similarly priced restaurants in Napa a number of dishes are not fried. A lot of Napa restaurants fall into the pattern of frying everything. It's nice, too, to have a nicer restaurant in the area serving Turkish/Middle Eastern/Mediterranean options. The wine list is nice and corkage is more than reasonable.

Don't miss this wonderful restaurant!! Our dinner was excellent, 5 stars!, and the wait service was wonderful. The only issue is that we didn't receive our cocktails, which were ordered before anything else, until after our appetizer and meals were served. I believe this was an unusual occurrence because the restaurant was exceptionally busy due to Napa's Lighted Art Festival.

Incredibly tasty food!!!! Creative. Have eaten/cooked Mediterranean food for decades. Tarla is the best of the best. 3 adults each ordered different entrees. Each selection was superb & absolutely full of flavor. Tara is a real delight/local treasure. Kudos to server Jason, too, who made our experience special. Be sure to try the appetizer: Saganaki - fried cheese with a buttery liquor based sauce embellished with chunks of dried fruit & served with toasted slices of baguette. Amazing.

Had a wonderful New Years Day lunch at Tarla with our exceptional sever Jason A! We're Napa locals and this was our first time at the restaurant... we know our gyros and Tarla does an exceptional job presenting their's. Pita and hummus are standouts, and the baklava and vanilla gelato were delicious. Highly recommend and easily the best Mediterranean in the area! Jason was a wonderful host!

Main course arrived barely 15 minutes after pre-dinner drinks. Salmon cooked perfectly although not truly carbonara-sauced (no eggs, cream or cheese). Stuffed eggplant excellent. Sadly, I was served absolutely the WORST coffee I've ever had in a high-end restaurant! Greek coffee was offered but apparently the machine wasn't working.

Wonderful food: notable highlights included octopus salad, hummos, beets, and several lamb dishes. Both wine and beer selections were strong and fairly priced. We had to wait ten minutes for a table even though we had a reservation but our waitress was attentive, knowledgable, and friendly. Tarla was a bit noisy at 7:30 but fine by 8:30. It was a very good dining experience.
