    This is a fabulous spot for dinner in downtown Napa. The restaurant is located in the Culinary Institute, which in itself, is so unique, but everything else is so fantastic too. The staff was warm and welcoming, which always makes for a good start. We were seated at a table outside on the patio next to the big beautiful garden. It was wonderful. The food, much of which came straight out of their garden, was off the charts good. We had the cheese plate and tomato salad with stone fruit to start, and then we had the swordfish kabobs and tomahawk pork chop as our mains. Everything was just amazing and delicious. We finished with the night off with peach cobbler - which was very very yummy. The wine choices were great, and service was absolutely superb!! I highly recommend trying this place next time you’re in Napa, you will not be disappointed.

    The menu is very innovative. The presentation is lovely. The flavors married perfectly. The roasted octopus was tender and seasoned perfectly and accompanied by a tasteful and beautiful array of fresh vegetables, hummus, saffron rice crisped on the outside with barberries scattered about to provide a sweet/sour surprise. The flavors all have a mild but delightfully noticeable middle eastern presence. The meal was fabulous, the flavors enticing, the portions just right. Most enjoyable evening and a meal that will not fade from memory! The tomato salad was FABULOUS!

    We had high expectations for this restaurant but the food was bland and very expensive. Maybe it was just an off choice( we all ordered same dish) but we were disappointed to say the least. No complaints about the service!

    Overall disappointing experience. The starters were very good, however the main entrees were delivered to the table cold. Our Server was quick to respond and rectify the situation. Once the food items were served a second time, everything was as it should have been, piping hot and quite delicious!.

    The brunch menu is limited, but service is friendly and it has a nice casual outdoor seating for eating. The burger is amazing. The lamb 'stew' dish should be taken off the menu. It is nothing like a stew, more like tomato sauce with a sprinkling of lamb.

    Everything we ate on the menu was absolutely delicious. The scallop ceviche, lamb ribs, swordfish skewers, garden salad, and New York steak. Our toddler even loved the swordfish. We were able to walk through the garden together afterward, too. I will absolutely come back here.

    This CIA site has a big garden that you can walk around in and see what are planted. Very nice! We chose to sit ourdoor, but unaware of the temperature drop in the late afternoon, so we asked them to light the torch heater. We ordered the 24-hour tri-tip and the tomahawk pork chop, as well an order of their chef’s bread. We waited for a very long time before the the food was served. The bread was not served until the tri-tip was served and after I inquired where is the bread. Our overall view: The Chef’s bread was basically dinner rolls, and definitely not worth the money that they are charged for. The tri-tip came lukewarm at best, and we didn’t know whether that was supposed to be at that temperature (which later I inquired and was told no, it was supposed to be hot). But we were hungry by that time and we just ate it up (other tables complained about their food and it took even longer for replacement dishes to be delivered). The grilled apricot side dish was very firm and sour. They used unripe apricot for the grilling and thus not tasty. The tomahawk pork chop was a hit and very delicious. The service was chaotic and they messed up quite a few tables’ orders. Overall, we most likely would not visit this place in the near future.

    Took my elderly parents for a nice brunch in the Napa Valley. The weather was perfect for them to sit outside and take in the balmy weather and culinary garden sight. The food was deliciously prepared, the staff super welcoming, and overall ambiance was perfect. The lounge area was appreciated; time stopped and we were able to relax and take it all in! Lovely experience away from local crowds.

    We've been to the Grove a number of times and we appreciate that they are often adding new things to the menu. We tried three new items last night. All were outstanding. If you like duck you must try the duck carnitas. The swordfish kebab and the pasta with burrata were also excellent.

    I had been to other CIA restaurants, and had high expectations, but ended up disappointed. The food was okay, but we ordered a number of dishes and all seemed to have the same flavor profile from the duck to the swordfish to the octopus. The squash side dish was burnt & bitter. Dessert was the highlight, but not a restaurant I would go back to.

    This is not my first visit to The Grove at Copia. In the past, I loved their food and their service. That night, everything was off, esp the food. We ordered 3 different feast options. The short rib, cauliflower, and the octopus. I dream about the short ribs and convinced my party we have to go to the Grove. It was embarrassing how bad the food was. The short ribs that I talked up was well done, not soft and really bland. The grilled cauliflower was “mushy” although well seasoned. The Octopus was amazing and what was expected from this restaurant. We also ordered the swordfish kabob and can only describe it as dry. The usual service wasn’t there either. We kept running out of water and called out to any employees we saw for some water. This was done multiple times during dinner. I was told the chef was out of town and they had others covering for him. Well, that explained everything. If anyone at the restaurant asked us “how dinner was” I would have shared my feedback but no one asked or cared. Guess this is what happens when the chef of the restaurant is not there. Sad to say, that will be my last visit to The Grove at Copia. I am such a disappointed ex-fan of this place.
