    This is my second time at the restaurant. I brought 2 friends for a birthday lunch and they LOVED it. Fish and Chips a big winner, the Pho is my favorite, skillet corn bread was GREAT. AND the selection of cole slaw was fantastic (4 kinds). I have already booked a birthday lunch for my husband in May.....keep trying the wonderful selection.

    First time at Q's and was very disappointed. Our servicer/bartender was not friendly or attentive. While there were good spice flavors, the food was overcooked and dry. Too many other great bbq restaurants in Napa Valley to return to Q's.

    We have been to the Q many times, in both their old and current location. The food is always excellent, the prices are reasonable, and the service is always friendly and attentive. It’s great for a casual date night, or with a large group. Can’t beat their fried chicken with vinegar sauce!

    OMG!! I’m so glad I found this restaurant, came to Napa for our anniversary,Husband I shared a plate of ribs which were so tender and falling off the bug. They were amazing. We also had the greens. I had the brussels sprouts extra crispy the best I think I’ve ever had. Then they brought out a piece of Keylime pie. I think I ate the whole piece by myself. I have not stopped talking about it the whole time I’ve been here. I can’t wait to come back. Definitely be on my list to return, there was so nice and friendly 😘

    My wife and I went to have lunch prior to seeing a performance at the Blue Note. Conveniently located two blocks away from the venue. Menu prices are slightly on the high side but comparable to downtown Napa. Great music, bathrooms were clean, no debris anywhere. The food was good, the waitress was great. However, the only downside is when we were packing up our leftover food to go. The busboy, instead of bringing boxes to the table for us to pack, he took our food and packed it in the kitchen. The problem was I left mashed potatoes on my plate with a piece of chicken. He threw away the potatoes and boxed the chicken. Needless to say, when I got home to eat my leftovers, I was angry the busboy tossed my potatoes. Will I patronize this restaurant again, definitely! Will I let anyone box up my leftovers...definitely NOT!

    This is restaurant is not in the middle of downtown Napa, so it may be difficult to find if you don’t have the address. But, the service was good and the fried chicken was tasty. We enjoyed the Napa restaurant week lunch special.

    Q has stepped their game with their comfort food and attention to the customer. We were seated at a quiet corner without having to request it, when they could have sat us at a busier and noisier place. The maitre D gave some great suggestions on the food and specials for a cold rainy nite. The food came out fairly quickly and each dish was delicious, which was not our experience at the old location. The service was pretty attentive. It was a bit too noisy for us. Music could be less loud and a little more soothing. But with the huge bar fairly near, the music seemed to be geared for that crowd. It seemed to change to more dinner music when the bar crowd left and was getting a little later, like 7:45 and lucky for us, we could hear again when the dining crowd thinned out. Definitely recommend for good comfort food made deliciously and healthy choices that were also delicious. That was worth the price. We will return more often. Loved the artichoke appetizer, healthy Mexican soup and rhe fried chicken with delish mashed potatoes and tasty key lime pie served in a small cup. Perfect for us and we shared . The energy of the staff and customers was conducive to a happy visit.

    Servers and owner were very professional and always kind when we visit their restaurant. Napa Restaurant week featured The Q serving fried chicken, mashed potatoes and collard greens, and also desert which was Key Lime Pie in a small mason jar. Food was incredible. And the cost was $26 each. One of our favorites in Napa, CA

    In from Los Angeles, Napa residents recommended this for us to meet four friends from Sacramento. My Bloody Mary was on fire with one sip was all I could drink. Couldn't even eat the celery. The only drink I ever left sitting full by my plate and on my bill. Fish and chips have habenro pepper in the tarter sauce. Our friends like spicy hot food and drink; an alcoholic beverage with a slice of pepper is o.k. Ordering fried pickles for the table, one order was enough and everyone enjoyed this new taste. We had soup and grilled cheese sandwich; both were good. They enjoyed their entrees, too. The size of the entrees encouraged sharing. The service was excellent, water and lemonade glasses refilled quietly and often. We were delighted we weren't hurried. We're hoping to come back another time to give Q another chance now that we know it has a pepper basic.

    Went for late lunch and had the blackened cod sandwich & my husband had the brisket sandwich. Both were awesomely good! The fish is quite spicy and came with the crunchy French fries. A selection of BBQ sauces was served with the brisket. Will definitely be going back!

    We arrived about 15 minutes early, but our reserved table was ready for us. The ambience is causual-fancy (if that's a term). The service is friendly and tentative. Our server asked if we were familiar with the sauces, and I told her it was our first visit. She said, welcome, and explained the color coded bottle caps of our sauces. We ordered the Taste of the Q for two, a meat sampler. The platter has a generous offering of meat, and it was so good. I did need a littler more salt, and I asked for a salt shakler, and our server brought us a salt shaker and a pepper grinder to our table. Over all, it was a very pleasant first visit, and I would recommend everyone to try this place out.

    The Q was AMAZING!!!! My boyfriend and I got the “Q for two” and it was so much food we had it for dinner and more than enough was left for us to have lunch the next day (we still have leftovers lol). We tried all of the meats and they were all super tender, the ribs fell right off the bone and the pulled pork was juicy. We also got the cornbread which is absolutely a must— it was so good with the honey butter and also plenty to share. Mac and cheese was a 10/10 too! Service was great and everyone was super friendly. Will be going back!!

    We sat at the bar and ordered 4 side dishes to share. The sticky wings were great and others were fair at best. Collared greens were way over cooked, the garlic fries were soggy and the chicken pieces on top of the salad tasted like little rocks. The bartender was great along with the ambiance at the bar. So give the service a 5 star. I would recommend The Q just for the bar and ambiance but if the sides are any indication of what the main meals are I wouldn't recommend going there for the food.

    My husband and I embarked on an early dinner excursion to celebrate his birthday, creating an intimate moment for just the two of us. Upon entering the establishment, we observed its serene emptiness. Expressing our preference for a booth, I inquired of the hostess if this request could be accommodated. However, her response alluded to reservations, insinuating that the booths were reserved for larger parties. Curiously, the remainder of the evening witnessed an untouched vacancy of tables within our chosen vicinity, a disappointing outcome given that I had noted the occasion as a birthday celebration in our reservation. Undoubtedly, we found ourselves ensconced at a petite table, the hostess jesting that it resembled a booth in its coziness. Our culinary journey commenced with a shared indulgence in the delectable pulled pork sandwich, which revealed its true splendor only after a liberal application of the myriad sauces offered for our selection. In the realm of appetizers, the crab dip made a delightful cameo, tickling our taste buds with its savory charm. For libations, I ventured into the realm of mocktails, selecting the cucumber prickly pear refresher, a decision that would prove nothing short of transcendent. Its exquisite blend left an indelible impression, ranking among the finest mocktails I have ever had the pleasure of savoring. However, as my husband and I embarked on the drive back home we both concurred that, regrettably, our visit would likely be our first and last. The service, marred by the booth incident and the overall lackluster attentiveness, left much to be desired. In addition, while the food did have its moments, it failed to evoke the kind of culinary delight that compels one to share tales of gastronomic splendor. With a sense of resignation, we concluded that our future culinary explorations would likely steer us toward the familiar and reliable comforts of Bounty Hunter down the street.
