Walk into TORC and you might notice the music. It's rock & roll, blues, or soul, and it's undeniably on. You might notice the energy — it's high. And you'll definitely notice our bar. It's busy serving well-made cocktails and pouring rare wines we're proud to say you probably won't find anywhere else by the glass. There are no white tablecloths. No dabbing the corners of your mouth. No pomp, but lots of circumstance. And perhaps the only reason you noticed the aforementioned is because you haven't tasted our food. That's when the music fades into the background. Join us.

    Cool setting including house music. Staff super knowledgeable and attentive. Unique flavors and presentation for all dishes. Recommend deviled eggs, scallops and filet. Also recommended a nice Pinot by the glass that ordinary would require the purchase of a whole bottle. Will be back!

    Delicious & Inventive food . Great service from the moment we walked in. Highly recommend the scallops with popcorn… any dish with tomatoes & the zucchini blossoms. Can not wait to go back & try more things…a bit pricey but we understand this is just the way it is right now. If you are noise sensitive, you may be challenged by the high setting of the music.

    We've been here before and loved it so much we were willing to take the only reservation available for our anniversary: 4:45/aka old people time. Not only was the place packed already, it was young/middle aged people, great rock music playing and tons of energy. Our server was fantastic, introducing my husband to a cocktail made with booze that had been conditioned by blasting Metallica. He was not only well-versed in the offerings, but charmingly enthusiastic. The food was ridiculous: we had the iberico (perfectly peppered), deviled eggs (best we've had in our lives), tuna with yuzu (spicy yet nicely balanced and fresh). My husband's main course was the quail, which he loved, with spectacularly crispy skin. I had the tuna and foie gras special, which blew my mind. I can't wait to return!

    Amazing experience at TORC started with the baller flight of champagne including Cristal, Dom Perignon, NV Krug and Ruinart Rose. Started with the tempura squash blossoms and were excellent with a yuzu dipping sauce. Next came the ahi tuna tartare that really blew me away with its freshness, flavors and texture. The Rigatoncini was a play on cacio de pepe and was very light and tasty, not a typical pasta dish feel. Last main course was the king salmon, cooked to perfection with a soft moist center and nice crisp on the outside. Finished with some cookies, s’mores ice cream and an apricot tart. Server Zach had the perfect cadence for checking in on us and was a delight to engage with. A really incredible, memorable meal that should not be missed!

    I have been a regular at Torc for a long time. They had to reorganize some since the pandemic, but the changes to both decor and menu are not obvious. It's a lovely spot in the casual/fine dining genre, like so many other places in the Napa area. Pretty faithful California cuisine. Dinner had high notes, especially the braised lamb shoulder, which was fragrant with marinade and fork about tender. My seared scallops were less interesting than their more elaborate presentation from a couple of years back. Roasted fingerlings in a butter sauce with the lamb were, oddly, served slightly chilled. I wouldn't recommend that. It's a good date spot for foodies, but warning, dinner for two with beverage (just one bottle of wine and drinks) tax and gratuity was $453.35.

    One of my favorite restaurants! The food was amazing and the service was awesome. The tuna appetizer was possibly the best I’ve had. And the presentation was even better. We also had the tomato heirloom salad, which was awesome. We shared a steak and had mushrooms on the side. The steak tasted great and was cooked perfectly. The best part was the ambiance. The music was perfect… 90’s rap.

    Beware of making last minute modifications to your reservation. The manager will not accommodate any cancellations even though extreme circumstances were applicable. After explaining our reasoning of needing to cancel the manager was adamant that house rules trumps all circumstances and a $25 per person charge would be upheld if needing to cancel. This was totally unacceptable and placed my family and I in harms way due to the stubbornness displayed by the manager. My wife talked me off the ledge but the managerial experience left an unpleasant taste in my mouth meaning I would never support this establishment again. I will be sure to also encourage other family members to tread lightly when making a reservation.

    Fantastic service, great wine, and delicious food. The menu was full of fresh, local ingredients. We had tuna tartare (amazing), pasta with sugar snap peas (fresh and summery), lettuces with cherries, pecans, & goat cheese (delightful), risotto with perfectly cooked mushrooms and preserved tomato, and an apricot tart with blueberries and buttermilk ice cream (don’t miss this.) We would get it all again. The table next to us got the salmon (with pork belly?) and if I went back today I’d get that over the risotto. They have an impressive wine list. The Alesia chardonnay by the glass was divine. We had a great view of the kitchen which was fun. Don’t miss a trip to Torc!

    This was our second visit to Torc. As with our last visit, the food was amazing and the restaurant has a delightful ambience. We were very disappointed with the service this time, however. Waited at our table for about 15 minutes before our server appeared. All of her subsequent appearances at the table were five minutes too late. For these prices, which we were very willing to pay, we will not return based on the poor service.
