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.

    The restaurant interiors were beautiful. The server was amazing! The dinner experience including drinks, appetizers, entrees and desserts took just over 2 hours. The chef uses lots of pepper. A LOT of pepper! It was a bit overwhelming for me. The music was loud, making it challenging to converse with family. My family enjoyed the drinks and some of the food.

All the food from starter to dessert was fresh, seasonal and absolute full of flavor and creativity. I would highly recommend it when in Napa. We will be back!

    Every dish was so flavorful. Subtle flavors and not heavy. We ordered the scallops and beef fillet for the mains. Tuna tartare was sublime. Service was excellent. Plates and silverware were changed for every course and table wiped. We will definitely come back again whenever we in Napa.

    Torc was amazing! All food that we had was great. Towards the end of our meal, we were stuffed so we didn’t order dessert but they had noticed it was our anniversary and brought us a scoop of ice cream with a crumble which was SO good. I thought that extra touch was awesome and made the biggest difference in our experience. Will definitely come back when we visit Napa again!

    Outstanding dining experience in cozy and casual space. Chef made great and varied use of seasonal items - asparagus and spring peas. Verde Gazpacho with fresh peas and a silky pea purée is a must. Ice cream sandwich was like nothing you would imagine and the crème brûlée also outstanding. Don’t pass on the pasta course all fresh homemade. Service from Barbara and rest of the staff was impeccable but never pretentious.

    Celebrating our 20th anniversary with a trip to wine country we found Torc online and we’re attracted by their interesting eclectic menu. And let me tell you it did not disappoint. Rich dishes leavened with flourishes of light herbs. Familiar flavors balanced by well executed diversions of ingredients. Always interesting and always thoughtful. As fantastic as the food is it should not overshadow the quality of service. Zach was knowledgeable, intelligent, engaging and warm. A consummate host for our dining experience. All around our experience was everything we could have hoped for!

    The wine menu was outstanding and most notably the star while the mushroom and asparagus side to the pork fell flat. Service was on point with a variety of people servicing. We had a few appetizers. While the beef tartare itself was great, the layer of airy crumble on top was too thick and lacked any taste and took away from the beef. If texture was the intent half the topping could have achieved a far more superior experience to what could have been an excellent appetizer. The creste di gallo pasta dish was most likely the star of the food as it was perfectly plated, seasoned and portioned. Overall 4/5 with some room to improve but definitely a place to experience in Napa

    Waiter was outstanding, food not so much. The chef tries to put so many flavors on a plate that the results border on inedible. Shellfish with a smell is never promising and the hodgepodge of flavors is overwhelming and discombobulated. A wedge gem salad with the core of the lettuce head intact and sweet pickles paired with ? Table next to us had different dishes and leaned over to talk about the food, which they also were unhappy with. On the other hand… wine list is world class and well priced. Chef needs to pare down and stick with high quality ingredients to complement his wife’s wine list. Beautiful space that screams out for beautiful food. Went here based on Antonio Galloni’s review on Vinous and extremely disappointed with food, not the wine. Come on !!!

    This was an occasion as I was scheduled to take my WSET Level 3 test the next day. Everything from the moment we walked in was a wonderful, surreal, amazing dream. From our lovely server, Barbara, to Mauricio, who let us taste the next table's unoaked Nebbiolo, with their, consent of course. Service was warm, impeccable and efficient. We ordered all over the menu, citrus salad, a divine and refreshing combination of the freshest citrus, the Jamon, sea urchin pasta and a decadent crème brulee, all washed down with Champagne and various selections from the well curated wine list. We can't wait to return s it was such a memorable experience.
