Nice place, but customers dressed too casually for my taste, and it was way too noisy! Next time I'll try sitting outside where it is quieter. The prime rib dinner was delicious.

Even when busy as it was Mother's Day weekend and it seemed they were down a waitress/waiter, the staff made up for a few stalls with energetic and friendly interaction, and as we have come to love and expect food was A+ and 2 extra points for putting the shared order on two plates for us, so we didn't have to make a scene or a mess trying to share. It's our mom's getaway lunch spot and it hits the spot every time.

The food was good and quite inexpensive for the area. Waitstaff was responsive and friendly. They were able to easily accommodate our group for lunch on last minute plans, which was appreciated

It was ok. Last min steakhouse that is open. The prime rib was good, but it’s like outback. It would have been nice outside seating. I thought it was only 50% capacity but it seems like full tables everywhere.

Utter garbage. Bad food. Abominable service. Obnoxious people. If you want an overpriced meal where the waitstaff will completely ignore you, you’ve found the right place.

Good food but no ambiance. Prime rib was awesome. Staff was friendly and attentive. Prior reviews led me to believe this was more of an up scale dining experience. My observation is this is where the locals go to get good food at a good price. Would not necessarily recommend to tourists.

The prime rib was good but lukewarm at serving, vegetables we're overcooked. A little disappointing overall.

Great neighborhood restaurant with large bar area and separate dining area. We had an outdoor reservation but since it was pouring they accommodated us indoors. Short ribs were very good. Seems to be a favorite with the locals and families with kids.

Unfortunately this place was not what we expected. We were in town for the day and was hoping for a nice spot for dinner. Being a steakhouse and in downtown Napa we thought it would be a little nicer. We understand that it’s tough during covid w moth converting to outdoor seating but I don’t think it would have been much better if it was normal times. The inside decor was very cheesy and old with odd random photos of who knows who.

It took awhile to be greeted at the door or even acknowledged but they were a little busy. The server was great and food came out pretty timely. We ordered calamari, French onion soup, ribeyes with mashed potatoes and broccoli. It was pretty underwhelming and the sides weren’t very flavorful at all.

Overall... it was underwhelming. Not what I expected when searching for a nice dinner while visiting wine country.

We wanted to try something new and heard great things about Trancas Steakhouse. They did not disappoint!! Quickly seated for our reservation, drinks orders and bread came out fast and the food...superb! Everything was cooked to perfection and delicious. Our server was top notch, she checked on us frequently and made sure we had everything we needed. We will definitely be back. Thank you Trancas Steakhouse!!

Went two nights in a row. I have missed well prepared prime rib and Trancas does the best job north of San Francisco's House of Prime Rib. Service was excellent and friendly.

We had a girls night out in Napa and came across this neighborhood steak house. The food is good. The prices are reasonable. The only thing that would have made it better is the traffic noise. But that’s not the fault of anyone when we are dining outdoors near a busy street.
We gotta do what we gotta do. ❤️👍🏼

Our experience was horrible.
Opentable confirmed dinner with outdoor seating at 7 PM
We drove 90 minutes to find out there was take out only available.
We could not wait 40 minutes for takeout to drive another 90 minutes to eat a cold steak.

Shame on Opentable.

When we arrived at are reservations time we were told that they were not taking reservations or dining outside due to covit. We drove 25 miles to be told this. Not happy with open table for not notifying us about this.

The staff was very accommodating and considerate of our daughter. The food is great. Their presentation is really good. Be aware that you're paying Napa Valley prices so it really doesn't matter where you go. Outdoor seating is adequate but it's too close to the street so you can hear all the traffic. Trancas St. is pretty busy and it's across the street from St. Joseph's hospital.

We've been there many times and have found the food always excellent. Unfortunately due to this current Covid Tier it was outdoor dining this time. They have tried to do their best here, but the traffic noise was an issue. But when things return to normal, they will be dining in again. Great food, great service, and would recommend to anyone.
