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.

After not seeing our son and daughter in law for over a year and a half due to the Pandemic, we chose Torc for our first dinner with them after they arrived in Napa to visit us! Torc never disappoints. The food was spectacular, the cocktails were so creative and super tasty, and their wine list is a very good one. The service is always perfect! We give a big shout out to Torc and consider it one of the best restaurants in Napa!

Creative menu with scrumptious ingredients that make eating healthy interesting and sublimely delectable.
Wish this restaurant was in my neighborhood! Sadly it’s a few states, not blocks over.

My husband had spicy Bloody Mary and I had Mai tai for cocktails. Amazing drinks! For appetizers we had deviled eggs and sweet potatoes. Delicious 😋 For our main entrees we had scallops cooked to perfection. So yummy 😋 their rice with coconut milk was so good. Everything is Amazingly good 😊 . The reason for 4 stars not 5 is because of covid fee charge of $4 per person and service fee of $8 🙄. They are the only restaurant in Napa that I’m aware of that charges covid fee n service fee !?!?

We had many options and we were torn on our decisions - then we had dinner at Torc and almost cancelled ALL of our other dinner reservations for the rest of the week. We wish we had had another night in Napa because we would have definitely gone back for seconds maybe thirds:-)

Best fine dining experience we’ve had in two years. We chose the deviled eggs and white asparagus as appetizers, artichoke soup and shared the filet for the main course. We had room for dessert and a nice glass of port. Heaven!

Didn’t like the fact that during these times we would be charged if we canceled reservation 3 hours beforehand. Understand but have never been threatened to get charged.
Our server was very nice even though we just came by for a drink.
Will probably never return or recommend.

This is by far and away the best restaurant in Napa and one of the very best in the Napa Valley. It is unpretentious, innovative food presentation, gorgeous presentations; every bite of every dish is a thrilled to the palette. The wait staff is friendly but never hovering, knowledgeable and seem to truly enjoy what they are doing. The food preparation is without equal. if you are looking for a most special meal in an extremely comfortable restaurant...this is your spot. The chef (owner) and his wife deserve Michelin Stars!

Our first time to this restaurant (very difficult to get in due to covid 19 restriction, so recommend make reservation ahead of time) and what a pleasant surprise.

The ambient was a nice surprise as the photos on many review websites do not have a good photo of the restaurant both interior and courtyard.

The food was amazing. It is fusion Italian cuisine (east meets west concept). Since just the two of us, we cannot try them all but just a few we selected were just top of the chart. (white asparagus with quinoa, crispy beef tongue with kimchi, risotto with sugar snaps & quail, Diver scallops with mushroom ears....delicious)

The service was top of the class. We were served by a team of professional servers who know what excellent service means. Also thank you Kathryn for taking care of us during your busy working day.

Many STARS to the Head Chef who made our dining so memorable. Can't wait to bring our friends there.

Outdoor (pandemic) seating was safe and comfy. The food was uniformly excellent. It wasn't cheap ... $80-ish for a two-person lunch ... but great for a special occasion, or if you are vacationing in Napa and aren't on a budget.

Did not appreciate that I took 4:15 reservation because was told they were fully booked. We were the only guests inside for the first :45. Patio had but 2 diners. Clearly, open table reservations have less priority. There was no reason we could see that our reservation time could not have been moved.

The service is really good. The staffs were very friendly and professional. Beef tongue is great, but the pork chop and the scallops were just okay. I probably won't go again.

The food was very good and the service was excellent. Though maybe the latter was because we were the only table indoors so we revived very prompt service.We ordered a number of appetizers and an equal number of entrees.

Appetizers: crostini with truffle. This was really delicious and fresh. The jamon ibérico was so-so. The crispy beef tongue was special and the sauces made it really stick out.

For the entrees we got the Lumache (Mac n cheese) pasta and the English pea risotto. Both were very flavorful and satisfying. We also had the pork chop with char sui, which I really enjoyed as the pork chop was bone-in and really juicy and the char sui (pork belly) just melts in your mouth. Lastly we had the diver scallops and they were big and flavorful, but I’ve had better scallop.

Overall the dining experience was great though it was a bit pricey for the food portions. That said I would come back here again.
