We were very pleased and impressed with our food.
Everyone was happy with their steak and the person in our party who had salmon said it was delicious. Service was not over the top but it was certainly adequate and the $20 corkage fee was just fine with us. Nice job, Trancas!

Visited Napa for the weekend and saw the restaurant while driving around town. Viewed the website and decided to make reservations. Although packed, we were seated immediately and were served bread and beverage orders were taken. Allowed time to view the menu and ordered the specialty: Prime Rib. It was delicious. The only downside is we were seated below an air vent which cooled our food faster than usual. The staff were pleasant.

It was ok...our server was darling and was trying to do his best. The steaks were ok, drinks are cheap, Caesar salad wasn't anything special. It lacked dressing and plenty of salad ribs on the plate. It looked like they were caught in the headlights, lots of people to take care of and not enough help. They forgot our soup, again, too many diners and not enough help. The booths are worn out(need new cushions), and our table top was dirty. Oh, but the wine glasses were clean. Like I said, really needs to be cleaned and remodeled. OK neighborhood joint, don't think we will be back. sorry.

Terrible service, outrageously overpriced considering the establishment is a dingy old bar, and uncomfortable booths. I would have gladly paid the $25 for my TINY sirloin had the place been more upscale and clean. After all, I was in Sonoma and I am very well aware of the high dining prices. The waiter ignored us and argued with me about the doneness of my steak, which was supposed to be medium but was instead over cooked shoe leather. My husband ordered the spaghetti because he couldn't bring himself to pay more than $20 for an entrée at a place like that. What a joke. It looked like a watery, frozen meal plopped on a plate with a mushroom on top. The good - my son's burger was fantastic. My one piece of broccoli and itty bitty carrot were very good. The young man serving water was the only employee who paid attention to us. In fact, he cleared our table, brought more napkins, brought more silverware (wasn't enough on the table) and brought me the manager, who by the way, was very apologetic and sincerely wanted us back. No way. She did comp the terrible steak and watery spaghetti, which was very nice. I will NEVER return here. It's a dump with a loud bar, dirty bathrooms and a popcorn machine in the middle of everything. Not my idea of a fine dining establishment considering there are tons of other places to choose from. My mistake for not making reservations somewhere else beforehand as it was a holiday weekend, which was the only reason we visited Trancas. Yuck, never again.

Service slow once restaurant started filling up. Requested birthday services in my reservation, and three times while there...had to stall dessert order trying to get the birthday song going. Hostess got snippy. But as usual the food was outstanding! Been a customer here for decades.

My wife and I have been coming to Trancas Steakhouse for years. I took her there for Valentine's Day just past. Food still excellent, service good, but the background music was hard rock retro, played so loud it was difficult to talk. We asked our waiter to turn it down, but someone soon turned it back up. We love the place; we just don't recall having the background music so loud and so retro-rock (Lynyrd Skinner for dinner?)

Had reservation - was seated next to the door. 20 minutes to get a waiter and had to ask the greeter to find us someone to take the order. Ordered everything at once sure to wait, and never saw it waiter again, do we had to ask someone to get him so we could get our check. Very, very disappointed since we had heard great things.

We have had the Salmon, Ribeye Steak,Lamb Shank,Chicken with Mushroom Risotto,Braised Short Rib,Prime Rib and Petrale Sole. All of these dishes were excellent as well as delicious. What more is there to say- Highly recommended. Bon Appetit!
