Entrees, rib eye steak and lamb chops,were phenomenal. Appetizers, Tempura Squash and Chili mussels, lacked flavor. Desserts also very good.
No corkage fee for Napa/Sonoma bottled Sunday and Monday
Service staff is very friendly and accommodating. Food was excellent!
Food is amazing! Service needs improvement across the board, very slow and not attentive. Hopefully they are working out the kinks!
This was our first visit and we plan to return. The service was very good and the food was as well. nice spot for dinner with friends or just as a couple.
Great service and food. Checking out the gardens and other curios at CIA also fun.
We were late to our reservation (went to the wrong CIA) but they were able to accommodate our party of nine in a private dining area. Very much appreciated
I hadn't been to the newest restaurant at Copia since last year and the food has improved and is excellent. It was a birthday lunch/brunch for a friend and we enjoyed mussels to start and then Dungeness crab benedict and a wonderful crab/shrimp salad topped off with a luscious almond cake. All quite wonderful and I'll look forward to returning.
Our first visit here and the food did not disappoint overall. My dish came out warm, not hot, which is a pet peeve of mine. Service was amateur - we had to refill our own wine glasses with the first bottle we bought. On the bottle of wine we brought, he broke the cork as he did not screw down as far as he should have. We will return and try again!
We had been there for restaurant week and really loved it. The food was phenomenal. We were traveling back to Napa with friends who had never been so we took them to CIA Copia. It just wasn’t the same experience. I tried the House Chardonnay and it just wasn’t my thing. We enjoyed our appetizers. Two of us ordered the tagliatelle for the main. It tasted more like egg noodles and was the most bland entree I can ever remember ordering. I asked for something else and ended up getting the appetizer soup because everything else would take too long. Our guest didn’t like his tagliatelle either but was afraid to send it back. Do not the best experience for a pricey meal.
Have always been interested in dining at the CIA in New York State but have never quite coordinated the event. We were visiting family and noticed a CIA Copia and it was surely worth the drive. The food quality was outstanding and the presentation was beautiful. I suspect that the service folks were students and paid a lot more attention to cooking procedures as the service was slightly less that expected, given the beautiful venue and fine preparation. Pork tenderloin wrapped in bacon was great as was the corn soup with chili oil. The desserts were outstanding. The chocolate "bombe" was delicious. A lemon bagna cauda was worth a taste as well. I'd go back.....and hope to visit the one in upstate New York. Kudos!
the dinner was bland. I had the rib eye and it was almost flavorless.... my date had the pork and it too was bland. Very disappointed.
Best in every way! My last meal there was a Sunday Brunch. Our table started with two Buttermilk cheddar biscuits stacked with thinly sliced ham and a piquant jelly we all loved. Then we shared a breakfast pizza, eggs benedict, mussels with crusty bread, a frittata. Each was unique in flavors and ingredients. The illy coffee is always a treat brewed in individual carafes. Prices are very competitive for an upscale restaurant. I just hope it remains a secret place without crowds. Service is spot on.
Great place to eat. Had great service and staff was very friendly
Everything was amazing. Crab Benedict was unbelievably great on a Model Bakery English Muffin. The fried chicken and waffles were perfect. The smoke salmon and avocado toast is a must try as is the burrata starter. The crepes were light, and fluffy. Can't wait to come back. Staff was great, and attentive. Loved walking through the garden before our reservation too.
Great venue for my wife’s 40th Birthday lunch with family. Good selection of food and drink with reasonable pricing.
Good service and piping hot food.
Wonderful meal! Excellent service! From appetizers to wine list to entrees and dessert truly an excellent experience! I had dined at Greystone CIA about 18 years ago but this is a different atmosphere. Very excited about professionals this school is training!
Delicious food and drinks, and top-notch service. The grounds and outdoor seating are really beautiful too, hope to be back again soon.
Delicious food except the portion size was a bit small.
Service experience was odd . . . After the hostess seated us outside, we sat almost 15 minutes on a quiet day with lots of staff moving around but without anyone acknowledging us. Someone dropped off water and I did everything I could to make eye contact with her and start talking to her, but she just walked off. Finally I flagged someone down, a waiter who apparently was not in our section. He was nice ( and we still tipped 20 percent because of course the wait wasn't his fault). Food was pretty good, big portions which I wasn't expecting, but the wasps (not honey bees) were bothering us constantly. There were literally two at our table the whole meal, and we just couldn't enjoy ourselves. So we asked for boxes for the 85 percent of our meals that remained, and took off early. Got home 90 minutes later to the east bay to see that they had thrown the dressing for my crab and shrimp salad just on the bottom of the box, so everything was wet and covered in aioli! Husband's fried chicken and waffles were also sitting in his gravy. So disappointing!
Restaurant was noisy and crowded - not what we expected from earlier visits. Our food selection was excellent although menu was very heavy on non-attractive vegs.
We might go back on a non-weekend night for the food but certainly not for the clamor!
Our waiter could not put thru our Mastercard Debit Card so another disappointment . We were given no advance notice it would not be accepted and wonder if he did it incorrectly.
Not a very satisfactory evening,
Always fresh and vibrant menu. I love the creative offerings and great service.
We had a wonderful brunch at Copia. The steak and eggs were excellent, a most generous portion and great value.
Delicious food, great ambience and fantastic service.
We are Napkins that brought visitors from Connecticut and it was a very nice experience. Both the appetizers and entrees were very good and the service was excellent. My only constructive feedback is the moderately priced appetizer portions were too small for sharing. I would rather pay a little more for a bit larger sharing portion. We will definitely be back.
We had a lovely lunch this weekend! The food, service and setting was perfect!
Visiting from the East Coast. Outside seating was beautiful. Wait staff had a few hiccups with drinks etc but overall a great experience. Fries were to die for and the burger was one of the best we ate in a long time.
The food was wonderful, we went for an early dinner at 7pm and the restaurant was about half full when we left. All of our servers were charming and more than helpful. I can hardly wait to go again
Met a friend here, for a great salad. Nice to find
salad that works for someone who doesn't want too many calories. The room set up to enjoy conversation with friend. One problem was lunch was on a friday and finding parking was terrible. I parked almost a football field away in a lot across the street. Ok...you are saying, the walk will go you good...but just give yourself plenty of time to find a space and walk to restaurant. Please, do not bring your kids here...you can take them over to Oxbow where the noise will hide your childs screams!
Thank you Copia for still putting out good food. The room is excellent for conversation.
Great find. We where pleasantly surprised to find this great place.
Great experience overall, food wasn’t anything super special but it was respectable
A very disappointing experience. I had been to the restaurant on the CIA campus on a couple of occasions and have always been very impressed so I was looking forward to how they would operate a professional kitchen. We got to the restaurant a few minutes before a reservation time and opted to sit in the bar and have a cocktail prior to dinner. The bartender was not very personable and didn't really seem to know what he was doing. We later found out that he was simply a busboy that was filling in. After we were seated a not-so-friendly lady came up and took a drink order. It seemed as though she was being disturbed by having to wait on us. I later found out she was the acting manager.
The restaurant was not busy at all as only about six tables had occupants but the service experience was quite poor. In addition the menu itself was quite limited which surprised me. Our server was friendly but had obviously not been well trained. I ordered a flight of red wine and when it was delivered our server identified the wines as a Pinot, a Merlot and a Chardonnay! At first I thought he was joking but he obviously didn't know what he was speaking about. Although the food was tasty it was not as described. I ordered a Steak Diane. I've had Steak Diane prepared at multiple locations and I know that this is a steak that has a sauce with Dijon mustard, mushrooms, Cognac and cream and is often a flambe. Also it was supposed to be a ribeye per the menu, and although I can't be certain I think it was just a tri-tip. I ordered it medium and it was quite well-done. And it was swimming in a very soupy jus. Clearly not Steak Diane! My wife had chicken that was tasty but the vegetables were quite overcooked. This was not the experience that I was expecting at a CIA facility.
Decadent food! Friendly and helpful staff, while maintaining an impressive air of professionalism. Excellent experience!
CIA menus are always creative and fantastically prepared. Don't hesitate to try them.
Fantastic meal. I sat at the bar so I could watch them cook. Everyone was so friendly and the food was amazing. I really enjoyed the local wine as well.
We were very much looking forward to dining at the CIA however the restaurant was in Napa. Your website needs to call attention to the fact that you're not eating at CIA when referring to Copia. It's quite a drive to get to Napa in traffic from CIA and we were late.
This is our first time at Copia and we started with the mussels which was awesomely spicy, which we savored the sauce with more bread. Enjoyed the lamb and pork loin with bacon. Also tried the prawns tagliatelle with pesto which were very fresh tasting basil.
We went for a family brunch. The menu was varied and interesting. Everyone tried something different and we ordered a couple of appetizers as well. All hits, and not a single miss. We expected good from CIA, but it was outstanding! Personal french-press coffee for everyone, homemade jam, and wonderful flavors. Highly recommended!
We were looking forward the the dining experience. Hostess was lovely and tried to make up for some poor service. Artichokes were yummy but my chicken was undercooked. I wouldn’t recommend and will not go back. With so many options in Napa it just doesn’t measure up.
