The Restaurant at CIA Copia
The Receptionist girl was not welcoming or friendly, asked the server for a sample of the rose, but instead brought me a full glass...food was good, however the customer service was terrible; not genuine service at all. Good food with terrible customer service is not one i will be returning to anytime! I rather be somewhere where i am wanted with mediocre food than at a place with good food and terrible customer service which is not genuine.
This is a great location to grab a meal with a large group with kids. I would steer clear of the main courses and stick with sides and appetizers - much more satisfying experience. Kids meals are great and the service is patient and kind.
Unfortunate. My last visit was 5-stars....our second time, party of six, is likely the last. Poor service sometimes bizarre behavior and two of our party, who had what we thought was undercooked pork, ended up sick all night. Just a big disappointment.
Beautiful setting with a wine museum and very nice interior. Very friendly staff and the food was delicious. We were there for a business dinner and everyone really enjoyed it. I am planning to come back with my husband.
That was a fun birthday dinner celebration on 1/13/19 with my children. There was a light show right there that was part of the Napa Valley Light Festival and it was amazing. The food was yummylicious. We will go back again.
One of the best meals I had in my life! Try the braised oxtail and the filets!
Six of us had a wonderful dinner at Copia. The mussels, albeit a bit spicy, were delicious. And if you like steak tartare, it was very good.
New to the menu was a half Peking Duck, as good as we've had in any of San Francisco's Chinatown restaurants.
Avocado/salmon appetizer was outstanding. Blue cheese burger excellent. Wholesome ingredients. Unique dishes. Well-prepared and presented. Attentive and obliging staff.
Huge disappointment especially given restaurants in Napa area. Expected it to be like the CIA in Hyde Park, New York. Old chairs and table, stark table setting and atmosphere, and so-so food. Try other places in Napa.
One of the greatest food and service experiences I have had in Napa. Greg Neal the GM and Clair our server made my group of 9 people feel like part of the family. The chef's blew my group away with spot on dishes, make sure to include the Oxtail dish in the mix when you dine with them in the future.
It was a midweek birthday celebration and it fit the bill to a tee. The menu was varied and it was tough to down select to a couple of choices we could handle. Our food choices were wonderful and prepared well. The service was outstanding and we had just the right amount of personal attention. The setting was casual but very nice. I highly recommend it for anyone looking for good food and good value.
This restaurant is light and beautiful. The service was perfect, informative and consistent. We were well taken care of. The wine and food pairings are incredible. They also have wine flights which are much fun as you get 3 different wines in each pairing.
Greeted warmly by the receptionist who happened to be our attendant too! Great food choices and wine selections. Everything’s exceptional.
The place is very confortable, beautiful and nice. The food is very good, tasteful. We were well treated.
Initially we thought we were making a reservation for the school restaurant, but apparently they were closed and only the Copia location was taking reservations. The food was fine, the space was fine, excellent service, but nothing like the restaurant at the actual school. Hold off for that.
We had a wonderful time.
Food is fresh and well prepared.
Best boulibase I ever had, the Brussrel Sprout Salad is refreshing and tasty.
Exciting place to dine. We had been told about the good food and stopped for lunch. each of the four of us had a different entree and each of us was thoroughly pleased. We learned about all the programs at the Culinary Institute and were enthusiastic about returning to do some cooking or joining our grandchildren in one of the programs designed for accompanying children.
Great ambience and food
My spicy mussels and Sauvignon Blanc were delicious. Our round table in the corner was perfect for an intimate, leisurely lunch birthday celebration. The staff was attentive and the ambiance warm, light and relaxing.
I had the duck wonderful! The desserts were also fabulous will definitely return
They ran out of chicken by 7pm! Not many dishes other than pork and red meat. Eat the pesto pasta with toasted pine nuts which was really good.
I was cold, wear your coat.
Outstanding food. Service not up to food. Ambiance a little cold. Example salad removed and had to ask for a fork when main course arrived. Wine with main course did nor arrive till half way through the meal. Very nice server, but could be a touch more professional.
Enjoyed a really great dinner here on New Year's Eve!
Delicious food and fantastic service!
Great New Years Eve dinner, felt special!! Food outstanding with fresh ingredients, nice presentation, and creative approach. Service was good too!
Different than Greystone. We tried this as an option to Greystone - both are fantastic, this was fun watching the Kitchen in action, and the food was amazing!
We wanted to give this a try after trying the other CIA restaurant many years ago. We had a very good experience. Food was delicious, service was great, and the location is beautiful (even better that it was walking distance from where we were staying). They even had Pliny on tap. Excellent quality to value and we will be back on our next trip.
Our family had a nice before-end-of-year dinner, the ambiance was great! My dad is very particular about the kinda of foods he eats and he absolutely loved the food here.
Service is slow and food is just ok. Too many choices in Napa to settle for ok food.
Excellent value. Food was very good, service okay, prices reasonable.
It's approachable fine dining designed with the tourist trade in mind.
Great lunch. Love the wine flight idea. Great space. Will be back soon.
Good food, only okay service. The students can season food well!
This was our second time at CIA. Both times the food was excellent. Giannette was an excellent waitress, well informed, with a good sense of humor.
Always excellent and tranquil.
A wonderful dining experience. Will go back again when in the area. Food was outstanding and the service was great.
Excellent service and excellent food, fabulous location. My only complaint was that they did not show on the menu or tell me in person that the crab that I was going to order is served in its shell. It was quite a bit of work and quite messy and Not something I signed up for. All I want is enough information to make a reasonable choice.
Great food! Loved the ambiance and decor of the restaurant. Perfect for brunch. The chicken and waffles and the mussels were amazing! Will definitely be back.
Food was really great. Ambience, decor, lighting, and dining room design all beautiful. Wine service was excellent. but table service was very slow at times. Seems like they need better dining room service management. A great dining experience in a beautiful setting.
The food and the service are top notch!!
Loved it! Our food was excellent and the wine was delicious! Service was quick, friendly, and efficient. We will definitely be back!
