    We were 45 minutes early but the young lady was gracious enough to seat us. Roy our waiter was prompt and offered the specials. Though they were busy, our food came in a reasonable time and Roy would check on us often. Will definitely visit again and request for Roy.

    I ordered the fish and chips and it was greasy, the beer batter was over cooked. The fish tasted old. (Terrible)! My wife ordered the crab Louie and it was delicious, the crab was fresh & sweet. We found out the Chef was not working lunch.

    This was our second time dining here and it was just a great as the first. The service was outstanding on both occasions as was the good, portions and quality. My hubby and I shared the crab enchiladas last time and a Caesar salad. Tonight he had the halibut which was kind of poached in a delicate broth. I had the coconut shrimp as an entree with mashed potatoes and spinach. My only complaint was the potatoes which were slightly stiff and not a rich consistency I’m accustomed to. Overall a very nice experience, the cocktail’s , I had the elderberry gimlet, was on point and just a great way evening out with friends.

    Made an online reservation for 9pm. Decided to walk in around 7 to see if they had an open table. We were able to be seated right away at the bar. Food was good. We got stuff off the bar menu a little price for the size of plates. Overall good

    We shared a lobster roll and the fish and chips. Both were fresh and well-prepared. The green salad with goat cheese was a nice starter, and we finished with the apple galette which was amazing! Our server was friendly and attentive, without being intrusive. Will definitely go back.

    We had the Seafood Sampler. The oysters, crab, and shrimp were excellent served cold. The lobster however was not. The online menu that I viewed was not the same as the menu presented at seating. Napa restaurants remain the best.

    Service and food was excellent as usual. Normally we sit outside, but was raining so we were inside. Very noisy...need some acoustics maybe, but we will keep coming back because I love the crab enchiladas and we also love the Chilean sea bass.. excellent 👍

    I attended a dinner service with a party of 4 for my 21st birthday. Our server was Roy and he was absolutely amazing, 10/10. He was very professional and charming. We started with the ceviche (highly recommend). I ordered the scallops for my entree, which are honestly the best thing on the menu. Together we also had the branzino, salmon, and pork chop which were all amazing. The food is very flavorful, well cooked, and generous in portion size. We ended with a crème brûlée, apple galette, and the mocha cake. Overall 10/10, will always be a returning guest to this establishment! 😊

    Great place overall. They weren’t seating outside because of the rain. I told the hostess I wanted to see the river. She offered a high top outside and out the heater on for us. The server was awesome!! The food was good and the half bottle of wine was the perfect way to end the meal. Definitely recommend this restaurant if your budget allows.
