    We enjoyed the food our server was awesome. They should take the chicken wire off the windows it looks stupid. The rest of the restaurant is decorated nice. I’m not sure what the thinking is with the chicken wire on the windows but it takes away from the ambience. The food was good our server was great. We had a great bottle of French Cabernet and it was priced well. We will come back.

    The food was subpar. The dessert was not good. We got the strawberry shortcake and the shortcake was hard as a rock. The wine was great which is to be expected at a wine bar. The service was terrible. I felt horrible for the one waiter they had for 9-10 tables. Unfortunate for such an expensive restaurant to only have one person for that many tables. Ive been here before and loved it. My most recent experience was very upsetting.

    It took an incredibly long time and while there was an apology, no one even offered to make it right. It appear a lack of staff issue but no one said anything. Our reservation was at 6:30 and we didn’t get our food until almost 8. It was not ok.

    Terribly slow service. There was one waiter who did his best but looked extremely stressed. I felt so bad for him. Took 30 min to get a glass of wine and it wasn’t even that crowded in the restaurant. Food took a long time to come out and my dish was cold. I didn’t bother sending it back bc I figured it would take forever. For such an expensive meal I wish we would have gone elsewhere.

    First time dining at Napa. Ordered 2 wine flights, fondue appetizer, two salads and two entrees. Almost done with appetizer before wine flights arrived, not enough bread was served with fondue, asked for more bread, and asked again, and the cheese had hardened before more bread arrived. Entrees arrived almost immediately after salads were served. The flow of food was off and our table was small making it difficult to not knock things over. Entrees were good, shorts ribs and spaghetti pesto. Overall it was fine, won’t go back as there are other places we like more.

    Went to NAPA Kitchen + Bar to celebrate my birthday. The took reservations on Open Table, but there were plenty of seats on a Tuesday night. Even though there was plenty of seating, the greeter decided to sit us right next to a young family. I was expecting that they did this because they were trying to make it easier on the servers, but the tables were waited on by different people - go figure. We ordered the Juliette flatbread as an appetizer. It was good, but very sparse toppings. I was expecting more pear. My wife ordered the chicken saltimbocca and I ordered the beef short ribs. Both dishes had a good presentation, but were very salty. I was happy the short rib did not have much fat. Always a risk with a rib dish. I also order a red wine flight. It paired well with the meal, but the 3rd pour was a little short. Overall an ok experience, but felt that I paid a little more than the experience deserved.

    We had a craving for Napa Kitchen last evening. Our party decided on more of a “light” family meal (wonderful flat bread, salads, & their fantastic cheese board (large)) topped with a wine we never have had (exploring wines is a reason to go to Napa Kitchen). Everyone had a great time and truly enjoyed the dishes & we now have a new favorite wine.

    Casual atmosphere with upscale food. Went on a Friday night, able to get reservations just a couple days before, and while busy, the space didn’t feel full, with lots of seating available at the bar. Service was not obtrusive or quick, but we were happy to have a relaxing meal to celebrate a birthday. Bonus points for a complimentary Triple Chocolate Pot de Crème for the birthday girl.

    The Griled shrimp and risotto was good except the shrimp was a little overdone. The steak frites was very fatty and chewy. For $35 it should have been better. We hadn’t been to Napa for 6 months because our last experience was not good. I don’t know if we’ll be back. It’s sad because it used to be pretty good.

    Our server was great. It was only her 6th day. It took them 20 minutes to come to table at the beginning. I think the tables are so uncomfortable. There is no way to have your legs underneath because of the legs. Mixed drinks were good in flavor but had very little alcohol. I have two drinks and felt nothing.

    The service of our waiter was good, however it was evident that he was spread too thin. 2 of the party ordered the bacon white cheddar burger and both burgers were cooked well, when they were ordered medium. The burgers were not seasoned well. 2 of the party ordered the Juliette flatbread, which the flavor was great. One of the orders took an additional 5-10 minutes to arrive at the table delaying everyone to start eating. The atmosphere was great, just not staffed appropriately for a consistent dining experience.

    Not the person to typically leave a bad review but completely unimpressed with this restaurant. 1. Menu prices on open table menu do not reflect current prices. 2. Ordered 2 steak and frites meals and not impressed whatsoever. They did not ask us how we wanted steak cooked and they came to us well done and completely overcooked (which is interesting because our bill and waitress told us they should have been cooked medium). Also the “Parmesan garlic french fries” were basic french fries you would get at a fast food joint. Would say the meal was worth $20, not $35.

    Chris was our server and he was great. The food was delicious. I chose the shortribs, hubby had salmon. Both were delivered hot and plated nicely. Both came with carrots. I usually don't eat cooked carrots their's paired excellently with the meal and were cooked to what I think was perfection. You will leave satisfied but not stuffed.

    We get that establishments are lacking staff and experience. My spouse's original order was not good. My spouse mentioned this to the waitress, a new meal was served, quite timely. Sadly, the second meal was over cooked as well. In the case of my meal, the fries were under cooked. These were not brought up to the waitress. We have been to this establish many times prior and it was good in the past. We are not giving up on them, but will wait a while before returning to give them a chance to work things out.

    The food for the most part, was very good. Our waitress was also very good. The biggest issue, the restaurant was clearly under-staffed. Our reservation was at 7:15pm and we didn’t leave until after 10pm. Getting our drinks and appetizer was very slow. We ordered our dinner and 45 minutes later we spoke to the manager because we had not received our meals. My friend’s pork chop was under cooked and she had to send it back. This is such a nice restaurant and everyone working was very nice and apologetic. However, after a long day at work on Friday, spending hours at a restaurant waiting on drinks and meals was not a good time.

    Normally this is one of our "go to" places for date night and/or family night. They have amazing wine selection and the food and service has always been great...plus only 5 minutes from our house. This time was not good. They were out of a number of regular menu items. That's understood in this time. The issue was the server wasn't knowledgeable on those items and required three trips to the kitchen to finally place our order. His attitude was obviously indifferent. Throughout the course of the our stay, his service didn't get better. I definitely felt judged the moment the server saw our party. Three of the four food selections were good. The flatbread was awful. When server came to check on food, we politely mentioned that something was off and the flatbread didn't taste right. He just said sorry and walked away. We were there for my Mom's birthday dinner and we've bragged how much we enjoy Napa. We were embarrassed and everyone was disappointed.

    Wedge salad wasn’t a wedge at all. I had braised short ribs which were good. I was told that the mushroom risotto that comes with the dish was unavailable. I was given brown , unflavored rice. The glazed carrots were 6 chunks of a carrot rolling around on the plate. Drinks/water were left infilled for long periods of time. We went to celebrate my birthday. Not impressed.
