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.

Great job under challenging circumstances. You've really done well in making your guests comfortable in an outside setting while continuing to serve Michelin level food. How do we get word out to the Michelin people?

Absolutely delicious food all the time. This is the second time that I’ve had the pasta and it didn’t disappoint. Delicious, fresh, subtle yet rich.

Torc is one of our favorites when we visit Napa! Food was delicious - white truffle festival had just started and we had a tuna toro with shaved white truffles that was spectacular! We also shared a pasta dish, also with truffles. Our server was outstanding - she looked back at our reservation and noted I am pescatarian - the pasta as designed apparently had some chicken jus on it, so she asked me if they should remove it (yes, please!) - touches like this really make a dining experience.

We will return again!

Came in on Wednesday evening and was seated outside in the back. Lovely ambiance both inside and outside. Quiet and clean. There were multiple heaters to keep guests warm. Our waitress was very friendly and knowledgeable about the various dishes on the menu. We ordered the deviled eggs (a tad bit too salty but unique presentation), the hamachi crudo (terrific) and the stuffed Maine lobster (outstanding). And then ended off dinner with the almond hazel nut dacquoise which was amazing as well. All in all it was a great dining experience despite the current COVID regulations and I would love to come again.

They added their own personal COVID tax to our bill, without any prior notification. It was 8 dollars and we had to speak to the manager to get an explanation. They said it was to cover the cost of business now, masks amd gloves, and wanted to be up front about it, which doesn't make sense since they should have have told us when we made the reservation or at least when we arrived if that was the case. I get that things are hard during COVID, but making your customers feel like they have to make up for the country being restricted buy giving you more money when they themselves have also had hardships during this time, is not the answer.

This has to be the best restaurant in Napa; we discovered it a few years back when it opened and I just cannot believe how high the quality is on every dish. We went twice in 3 days because it was so good. Everything on the menu is made with care and the service is spectacular. The homemade bread is incredibly good. Pastas are great; everything is delicious.

This is the fourth time I’ve been to Torc, but the first time since the pandemic. I felt completely safe. All of the staff were masked and gloved and the tables on the back patio were spaced comfortably apart. It was the best meal I’ve had since February! Every dish is prepared perfectly. I’ll be back as soon as possible.

My friends and I had a wonderful lunch at Torc. The food was delicious and service was awesome. I have really enjoyed every visit at Torc. Before COVID-19: dinner, Happy Hour at the bar and a group dinner in their private upstairs setting. Torc is a terrific Napa dining experience!

A very nice place to have tried! Very down to earth with a rotating menu that multiple people recommended. I feel it would have been better for dinner as we were off to wine tastings and stopped in for a quick bite, but very delicious and interesting finds!

I’ll start with the staff, who are to a person professional, friendly and INCREDIBLY knowledgeable- and went several additional miles to make our experience perfect.

We were greeted warmly and offered a comfortable place to order a cocktail while waiting for our table.

Cocktails were VERY well made (Manhattan and a paper plane).

We ordered two smaller plates, the beef tripe and hamachi crudo- both excellent and beautifully presented

Entrees were pork ragu Campanella and beef short ribs. Again both excellent and beautifully presented

After dinner we finished up wine over the Kenne goats milk cheese and a fresh berry sorbet. They have a great selection of local cheese

From start to end a really perfect evening

As an aside, based on what I could see and hear of other tables, the service level was not unique to us, the staff is amazing all around

Thank you for a great evening

From start to finish the evening we spent at TORC was exceptional. Our server was fantastic and gave us great food and wine recommendations that paired very well together. We never had an empty glass of water and as soon as we finished a course, the staff was cleaning up the completed dishes. It was our first time in Napa and I am so glad we were able to find such an amazing restaurant to spend our anniversary together.

My husband and I were underwhelmed with Torc. It did not come even close to meeting expectations. The food was terrible. The rigatoni was so over cooked it was mush, and the fresh tomato and basil marinara had almost no flavor. My husband ordered the scallops. There were 3 small scallops on his plate that did not smell fresh. We skipped dessert.
