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.

Love this place in downtown Napa!! Beautiful ambiance, classy but not pretentious. Excellent service and also not pretentious. They wipe off any drops or crumbs after starters before bringing the entree. They being fresh utensils. They fold your napkin if you get up to go to the restroom. The servers are friendly, knowledgeable about the food, attentive but not overly so.

You could go there for all of the above, everyday, date, special occasion, business or friend’s get together.

I booked a reservation with TORC because I saw so many reviews that said it was their favorite restaurant in Napa. It certainly did not disappoint. While I have only tried a few Napa restaurants now, I can still confidently say TORC will be my favorite. The food was amazing and creative and our sever, Jose, knew the menu inside & out and contributed to the elegant yet comfortable environment. I highly recommend!

This reservation was a little short notice, but we were able to get in. So glad we did. The food was absolutely amazing. Everything from the Costini to the Corn Soup, from the Radiatori to the Black Cod and Beef Duo were all wonderful. Probably one of the best, if not the best, meals of my life. The dessert was excellent as well. Will be hungry to go back again.

Insert every cus word to exacerbate how great this meal was.. shi*, fuc*, dam*! Not only was it the best meal during our 3 nights (we did a lot of research and read a ton of reviews before landing on where to eat) but it was the cheapest.
We had the Heirloom Tomato Rustico appetizer and it was so fresh, a beautiful presentation and off the charts good.
We then had the Corn Soup. This was the best soup I've ever had. A must try dish.
I had the Radiatori for my main and again it was so fresh and flavorful. Not heavy, not too sweet, just perfect. My husband had the Black Cod and was very happy with that choice.

Delicious food and really high-end feel to the service! The corn soup was incredible and definitely unique, including a cool table side presentation. The only thing that would have improved our experience was if they’d have recognized we were celebrating our honeymoon, since we had noted it in the OT reservation.

Polite and knowledgeable staff. Very attentive but not intrusive. Great cocktails and everything on the menu highlighted the best local fresh ingredients. Server picked up that we were celebrating a special occasion with an anniversary and our son’s and future daughter-in-law’s engagement, so the staff surprised us with extra special desserts. Highly recommend this restaurant for a special dining experience.

Total disregard for customer experience and ambiance. Loud, off genre music did not match menu and level of cuisine. When mentioned to staff, dining experience concern was dismissed. Sad.

Ambitious menu based on the best seasonable ingredients, pro service (intuitive, subtle, tone-sensitive humor), fantastic wine list offering selections from $36/bottle to the DRC $ stratosphere. Great cocktails (Berryessa Motorboat +++). You could cobble together some reasonably-priced appetizers and glasses of wine for a post-wine-tasting repast, or go for a multi-course culinary extravaganza (think: Alba and Perigord truffles, caviar). We opted for the later. Soundtrack hit just the right level of groove and volume (Prince, Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder, etc). Didn't repeat during our three-hour lunch on the well-spaced patio. A great way to come out of pandemic hibernation. Can't wait to go back.

TORC was absolutely fabulous!!! We enjoyed a group dinner with friends and chose to do the chef's tasting menu - everything was spectacular. The service was superb. The food was delicious and cooked perfectly. We enjoyed every bite. The sommelier helped us choose great wines to pair with the meal. We absolutely loved our experience and would highly recommend TORC to others.
