American
The Forge features wood-fired cooking specializing in Neapolitan-style pizza and American classics. We always use the best quality local, organic, and seasonal ingredients, including high-quality 00 organic flour from Central Milling and our own naturally made and maintained leaven. This leaven, used instead of commercial dry yeast, can take on the living flavor of the environment in each of our restaurants.


What else is our secret? Nearly 80% of our menu items are prepared using the imported Italian Valoriani oven, which allows us to create a pizza like no other! From our famous slightly charred crust exploding with texture and flavor to our hard variety of cheeses that can stand up to the heat of our 850 degree-oven, The Forge boasts its own unique twist on classic Neapolitan-style pizza.

Birthday dinner. Put it in the remarks. No one said a word. Food was average at best. Service was slow. Price for steak was high. Was supposed to have truffle fries. They ended up being normal fries with no explanation.

Outdoor dinning at the Forge is a must. Lunchtime and done within 30 minutes. Staff was friendly and practiced safe interaction. Fried chicken sandwich with parmesan fries hit the spot. Nice to visit a restaurant with so much space outside.

We had a great lunch but only problem was they were working on the court and using some kind of saw to cut the ground cover. It was so loud we could barely hear each other. Would have been nice if they had done that kind of work not during the lunch hour

The Forge has good food and drink selections. If you’re looking to support local eateries, I recommend this place! The wait staff was friendly, the manager was so kind! They practice social distancing, ask patrons to wear masks when going to and from table to restrooms, AND they give back to their community, serving First Responders fighting fires in Nap and the surrounding areas.

I did a reservation for 8:00PM to celebrate my birthday with a total of 5 person.
At arriving time they told me that they close at 8:00 PM and they blame Open Table system for the mistake.
Luckily a neighbor bar was open and I was able to celebrate .

So happy Forge has reopened for indoor dining!

We have always enjoyed the environment, food and service at Forge. Great to see it’s still as good as we remember.

We had cheese curds, cauliflower and two pizzas - Fat Boy and Mushroom. All were tasty. Looking forward to going back and sitting outside when it’s not smoky.

Our server took twenty minutes to initially take our order. She never checked on us after we received our order, didn’t ask if we wanted or needed anything else. I would have liked to have ordered another drink. She just took a long time then brought us the check.

Lovely outdoor area with live music but the band was a little loud. Service was well intended but appetizers came after the mains. Check has items we didn’t order. Quickly corrected with apologies. I like this place but would like to see better service.

Nice value oriented restaurant with good, not exceptional food. Good place to go to after movie. Service little spotty, but probably because of pandemic.

Very nice. We ate outside of course. Very nice and friendly staff, great service and good food.
The salad was mostly greens with not much else in it, not even a tomato but the turkey sandwich was very good
Lots of road noise which they can’t help.
A little breezy so bring a jacket.

Every meal I ever had at The Forge was fabulous. I love the beet salad, the watermelon salad, the pizza, the fried chicken sandwich - did I mention I love all their food??? The service has always been great and fun and that did not change with all the new regulations in place now.

We were in Napa to adopt a rescue cat and when I made the reservation, The Forge, was one of the only restaurants open for dine-in. They had the tables spaced appropriately, servers wore masks, customers wore masks when not at their table. Felt safe and comfortable in how they were executing their plan.
