Can't believe that it took us 3 years to try The Pear. It's a weird location tucked in behind the River Front building and the layout of the restaurant is even stranger. But... the food was great and the price was reasonable. We each tried something different as I was reviewing the restaurant for my Napa Valley travel services. I had the Chicken and Dumplings, my wife the Chicken and Waffle, and my daughter the French Dip. It was a toss up between the two chicken dishes. Au jus for FD was a bit greasy and our least favorite dish. Ended the meal with some kind of hot cookie and ice cream desert split 3 ways and it was a perfect ending.
Now the bad news... As we were paying the bill, we were informed that as of 1/31/17 the restaurant was closing. Nobody was sure why, but if I were to guess, the location and especially the layout of the interior (lack of table space) would be the reason.
