Good food, friendly staff, great price. I had the filet and it was very good. I think this was an option for affordable steak in Napa.

not the best steak you will ever have but at 50% of what you would pay at Cole's or Charlie Palmer not half bad.

Didn’t realize this was a local hangout. Great if you’re looking for that type of place but not if you want a classy place for a birthday celebration.

The staff was friendly and seemed to really enjoy their jobs. The food was outstanding, I had a steak and my wife had prime rib. Both were outstanding! The prime rib was not half fat like at a lot of places and the steak was juicy and tender. They corked our own wine which was a plus. Highly recommend!

Enjoyed Trancas as I have for the past 20+ years. I had the Beef Dip, and it was excellent as usual. Started out with some of the freshly popped free popcorn. Such a treat! All food here is freshly prepared and service is super too!

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.

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.
