    Anniversary dinner. The food was good. Just a little rich for me but flavorful. The portions were big. Our waiter was wonderful and super attentive. Our table was a bit disappointing we were right in between 2 bars and it was tight. We kept getting bumped by patrons passing by.

    The best dinner we have had together, hands down! Keep in mind, it is a bit loud and tight inside if you plan to eat in there. The food is incredible!

    Our table ordered clam linguine, calamari and shrimp, lobster roll, muscles, and steak sandwich. The food was excellent. Cocktails were well made. The interior is attractive and the service was top notch. We will definitely return. We will also make a point to dine in their riverside outdoor area when the weather warms up!

    Honestly, not great. Had reservations and still had to wait. Lobster overcooked and roll was almost nothing but mayo.

    The food is exquisite! We went on a Tuesday night, and the menu specials were absolutely incredible - Halibut ceviche, Chilean Sea Bass with a lobster-port cream sauce, and a Surf and Turf with giants prawns and a filet topped with jalepeno butter. I can only imagine what kind of specials they create on a weekend! The cocktails and wine paired perfectly with each course as well. The service was impeccable - our server and his support team always made us feel taken care of valued. The recommendations were perfect - we were very well taken care of! The view and general ambience was lovely - I would recommend not getting a table right in front of the door during the winter months, as the blast of cold air every time someone walked in was the only unpleasant part of this meal. I cannot wait to take more people here and share this amazing experience with them.

    The food and service were excellent but I did not enjoy the experience. The tables are along one wall so that one side of the table looks out but the other side is stuck with their back to the entire room looking at the wall. The tables are so close together that ever time the waiter serviced the table next to us his butt was in my face. The folks at that table were having a lively conversation which was impossible not to hear and made it difficult for us to converse.

    My wife had the lobster bisque followed by the Chilean Sea Bass. The bisque was creamy and rich, while the bass was well flavored (and quite a large piece) served over a potato puree. I had the New England chowder (slightly heavy on the bacon- it's a matter of taste) followed by the Cioppino which was outstanding, loaded with fish and shellfish and very rich in flavor. Would prefer that the pacing be slightly slower, felt a bit rushed, but that seems to be standard for Napa in season

    Enjoyed a seafood meal on the patio. The food was good- not outstanding but good . There aren’t a lot of seafood options in Napa - our meal was satisfying.appreciated the wines by half bottle selection. We will go back and try more of the menu.

    First time dining here. Had lunch. Very nice and professional wait staff and food was very good. We Calamari for starter and it was cooked perfectly. Crisp, not greasy and delicious! Also had the Linguini and Clams which was tasty but had a lot of red pepper flakes - so if you don't like spicy let them know. Also the Tuna Poke -- very good and fresh. The dessert was the Star of the lunch. Apple galette. WOW! Would like to go back and try other items -- We want to be wowed...

    Outstanding in every capacity. Mario, our server, was as good as any server we have had: knowledgable, efficient, and friendly. The cioppino was the best we have ever had. The restaurant was packed on a Sunday night, so they are obviously doing something right.

    We were in Napa celebrating my birthday! Our waiter was way too busy and not very attentive. We shared a seafood platter that was $118 and the shrimp were way over cooked…not even edible. And the lobster was also somewhat over cooked but we were able to eat that..when we mentioned it to the waiter nothing was done about it! They just did not care about making their customers happy! We also had the oysters Rockefeller for an app ($33) which were good but not a wow! The sauce was unusual..maybe a little too much mustard. We also had drinks and wine. We don’t mind paying more for great food but this restaurant is over priced for the type of food they serve! Tourist Trap…Will never go back!

    The food was superb. Well prepared, reasonable sized portions with excellent spicing and flavor - couldn't have been better. The chocolate pyramid dessert was unusual and excellent - certainly worth trying. The wine list was correspondingly excellent. The service was also superb. They never interrupted a conversation but were always there when needed.
