Made the reservations for my brothers' birthdays. All 6 of us enjoyed our food and drinks and the meals were reasonably priced. I would say they are good for any occasion and the bar was lively!

We were seated in corner next to back door. The Keroke band was setting up during our dinner and opened the door many times and it was freezing. This was not a pleasant experience.

Initial service was slow and took a while to get waited on. Steaks were slightly overcooked (ordered medium rare on both). Good basic salad included with the order was nice, as well as the side order. Decent value for the money. Good wines by the glass.

This is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is excellent and the service as well; however on this occasion it was exceptionally slow-not sure why. On this occasion, we enjoyed the Salmon and a Patrale Sole dish- both very good. Hopefully, the slow service was an anomaly.

We found this place on Open Table when we were looking for a late lunch / early dinner before a show at the Lincoln Theatre in Yountville. I thought the ambience was nice. Unfortunately, the food was just okay for me. We got the calamari which was nice! The vegetables in the calamari made a nice addition to the order. We also got the bacon wrapped jalapeno poppers which was just okay for me. We only ate a couple of them and left the rest alone. My partner got the sirloin steak which he liked. I got the chuck burger which was first way overcooked (med well) when I requested rare. They redid it and it was seared and raw on the inside (the middle was still cold). I ended up only eating a couple of bites and we took the rest to go. I ended up tossing the burger in the trash afterwards.

While the food was just "okay," we did love the drinks. The bartender made some nice drinks! The old fashioned we had was absolutely delicious! We ended up getting another one, it was so good.

We love steak and so we had high hopes based on the reviews we read. I don't know that we would go back for the steaks. However, if we're in the area, we definitely would come back for the old fashioned cocktails.

Ate here after going to Safeway Open at Silverado. It is only about 10 minutes from the course. If parking lot is full you can park in the lot to the east as the medical offices close before 6pm.

Nice booths for parties of 4 or less. Had the Prime Rib with a baked potato. Cooked to a perfect medium-rare and served with au jus and horseradish, both creamy and grated.

Chocolate Decadence cake was perfect dessert with coffee to top off a perfect meal.

Will be back next year!

Well, we have dined all over the Napa Valley for several years; I just don't know how we missed this place. This is truly a Neighborhood Gem. This is our second time dining here and we highly recommend it. It is a typical Steakhouse with steakhouse fare but at very reasonable prices. While prices are very reasonable , the food is excellent. We tried the Ribeye Steak and it was tender and perfectly cooked and , most importantly, delicious! We had the Short Rib- falling off the bone and just delicious. We tried a special that was excellent (Beef Tenderloin Scallapini served with Mashed Potatoes and Asparagus and a Wine Mushroom Gravy). We found the mashed potatoes, french fries, and side vegetables, were perfectly cooked and delicious. I should note that Entree's are served with your choice of soup or salad. You can also choose potatoes mashed, baked or fries. Wow, if I sound enthusiastic , it's because I am. We highly recommend this restaurant. Bon Appetite!

Both my husband and I ordered the Prime Rib - very, very good taste to the dinner. Horseradish was served with the prime rib, both creamy and raw - that was just the icing on the cake - made a really good meal even more enjoyable! Server was attentive to our table. Overall, just a really great dinner experience, our best of a 10 day vacation!

Sorry but this is not the place to come for prime rib. Even the baked potato wasn’t good. One time I had their shrimp Louie salad and it was good but then the next time the lettuce wasn’t the same quality.

Always a winner! Trancas Steakhouse is the place my friends and I love. The bread is crusty and hot. We both had steaks and they were done to perfection. The french onion soup is to die for. Consistently great food.

We always enjoyed having dinner at Trancas Steakhouse - love the atmosphere; it is energetic but at the same time relaxing, comfortable and full of locals that are having fun and a good time. And, of course, the Pear Martini and food is outstanding.

Good food, attentive service, and fair value. The establishment had a rustic decor and it was obviously a popular dining spot for the more seasoned local. We would certainly revisit.
