The space is young and fresh featuring black and white photography: 'The People and Places of Napa', beautiful oak details, excellent acoustics and an inviting marble bar. Timeless design by Stephen Brady evokes a social evening at home.

The Q is one of Napa's undiscovered treasures.

The food is consistently reliable and inviting; the prices are very reasonable. Kelly, Savannah (yes, this is her real name), and the rest of the staff are accommodating, friendly, and now especially vigilant about masks, sanitation, and social distancing.

Add to this a warm and welcoming room, where you easily can conduct a conversation without fighting a crowd.

If the Q were downtown, it likely would be busier, but given its location (in the same shopping center as Whole Foods and Trader Joe's), it relies mostly on locals for support, which to us is a benefit, and yet another reason to return again and again.

Sat outside, on the quiet side of noisy. Service was slow, but I don't want to hold that against them due to covid, they could just be rusty. I would go again next time I'm in town

We a nice night...sitting outside and enjoying dinner. Food was excellent..loved the
bbq. The cold slaw salads are perfect, we tasted three different styles because my husband and I always share! We must say...that they make the best fried chicken in the valley...lots of take out was going out that night. Did I forget to say, their corn bread is
great too. Service was perfect, all of the waitstaff is very attentive. We have eaten here many times and always enjoy being here. Their menu is limited on choices and that's fine because everything they do is excellent. They also are very clean and tables are far away from each other. Enjoy.

WE went for a Mardi Gras event so it was particularly festive and fun. the welcome was wonderful, great friendly customer service, the prices were higher but I think maybe because of the "event". Cocktail tasted good and was pretty and festive but pricey. Again maybe added in. But the dj and live band was free other than a donation which made up for the extra in the menu. Happily willing to pay a bit more for the meal and drinks to enjoy such entertainment. Music was very enjoyable and it was a fun, and energetic vibe. I definitely plan to return again. Hoping to check it out again with another event hopefully and would like to give the regular menu a try too. would recommend this as a good date or girls night out place. :)

We ordered the whole chicken entree, which stated on the menu would take 45 minutes to prepare. During our wait we ordered drinks and a Cobb salad. Unfortunately the wait time for the chicken stretched to 1 hour and 15 minutes. The chicken was good, but not worth the extra 1/2 hour wait.

We went for Valentine’s Day. Our table was ready at our reservation time.

It seemed like they might have been understaffed. And also my husbands chair back was to the bar and people (staff and customers) kept hitting his chair. Super annoying!!!

The food was great. We had the Q sampler for 2. Plenty of food. Plus the cornbread which did not disappoint. We did the spicy coleslaw which was perfect.

We will definitely get food there again but most likely to go.

Four of us had the fish and chips. excellent batter on the crisp fish. It was crowded at 5:30 but also restaurant week. One of our foursome was constantly pushed by a waiter due to his proximity to the bar area. I know it can't be helped . I would suggest if you have a foursome, don't choose that area. Choose the wall and a corner away from the bar.

We are familiar with really great BBQ, as we are from Kansas City, but we did not find the BBQ to be very good here at all. It was very very dry. The creamy coleslaw was good and service was good but the food was very disappointing.

Generally a very good restaurant. However, the ugly sweater competition turned the restaurant into a zoo. The food was an attempt at sophisticated (fish and chips with french fries?). My Chinese Chicken Salad had chicken nuggets with vinegar--uggh.

Our family loves this restaurant. We come here for special occasions but the food is perfect for any occasion. The salads are always fresh with not too much dressing. Love the ribs but the fish is great too. Our secret favorite though has to be the fries. One order wasn’t enough. Looking forward to our next dinner here!

Always good although the Chinese Salad could’ve used some shaved almonds or something to give it a crunch. No big deal, but a friendly suggestion. :)

Everybody really liked their meals, thought the wine by the glass prices were high and they didn't have any beers on tap, but overall it was a good evening and we were happy and would go back again. And the Wednesday fried chicken sandwich with the vinegar slaw was outstanding and well priced

I hope most people don't read this, because if they do, they will be privy to what is a largely undiscovered gem in Napa dining. The only thing that prevented me from awarding the Q five stars is I reserve this for truly stellar places like Auberge.

There are five thing that make this restaurant special:

1. The food, which more than exceeds expectations, with a range of appealing menu choices and consistency of execution, making dining a near sure thing .

2. The staff, which is fast , friendly, and professional.

3. The room, which is extraordinarily comfortable and pleasant.

4. The sound level, which allows you to easily have a conversation, even on a Friday evening, something that is not always achievable at other dining destinations.

5. The cost. This is not a place where you hope to eat on OPM (other people's money); this is a place where you are glad to spend your own money, with a corkage fee that's modest, and many menu options south of $20.

I hope no one reads this, given I'd just as soon keep this secret to myself and other locals who know a good restaurant choice when they see it, and want to keep it that way.
