    We had the Seared Salmon with broccoli as a side and the Bucatini Nero. Salmon is my friend’s favorite at Napa and the very generous portion was cooked perfectly. Not a morsel left on his plate. Great presentation for the sauteed shrimp dish. The flavors and different textures melded perfectly. I will definately have this dish again. I also look forward to tasting the other new entrees on the menu!

    Didn't realize the brunch was a buffet--my bad. Might be a good idea for the restaurant to update its website to describe and advertise the brunch? The website makes no mention of brunch at all. The buffet was good, and offered both breakfast and lunch options. This is a good choice if you have a group of big eaters, but a little pricey (understandably) for fans of small portions. Good location. Easy parking. No wait required.

    We like Napa river grill. Just want to offer some feedback on one item. The Caesar salad used to be one of the best in town and now not so much. The dressing and lettuce quality has changed. My wife and I both think it needs to go back to the old dressing and preparation. Just our opinion though. Service was really good and our dinners were great last night, the Salmon and shrimp were both good. See you soon.

    They honor your reservation requests, the ambiance is nice, and the restaurant is clean. The food, however, has been inconsistent. I’ve eaten here twice in 3 months and while the foods on the menu were the same, they differed entirely between my first and second experiences.

    We sat on the patio for a Saturday evening date. There were only 2 umbrellas so most tables were in full sun. A large party next to us asked to move inside because it was too hot. It has a nice outdoor bar but it was closed. Limited menu options available however what we ordered was very good ( sushi nachos, cheeseburger, beet salad, and chocolate cake to go) the cocktails were good but overall everything was very overpriced. We frequented this restaurant when it was on DuPont circle. I’m sad to say we probably won’t go back again.

    This was a slow evening for Napa so the noise was quite low. The food was excellent with a goat cheese starter. My two companions split the special which was a steak for two and they bot agreed it was one of the best they had ever tasted. I had delicious tomato soup with a cobb salad that was just enough and very tasty. Desert was crème brûlée and it was just enough as well. Not cheap but everything was worth the cost.

    The food tasted great but it was NOT plentiful. The appetizers and sides were in extremely small portions. Atmosphere was great. Service excellent. Presentation of food beautiful but I want to get enough food for what I pay. Drink and dessert prices in excess.

    We brought a party of eight for dinner. I moved away from Louisville but always loved Napa River Grill. The Caesar Salad was always amazing in the Parmesean Cheese bowl so to say I was disappointed this is no longer served that way would be an understatement. The salad did taste wonderful but was lacking that special touch from days gone by. People in our party had the Red Fish special and my husband and I had the glazed pork chop and they were cooked well and had a great taste. My rating is mostly affected by no longer offering the Parmesean Bowl. The service was good but it took an hour and a half for our entree to be served. We weren't in a rush but I found the length of time surprising. Would I eat there again? Yes, but it will no longer by a priority of mine when coming to town.

    We had a celebratory birthday lunch for 2 (out of 4) of us. Our waiter, David, was very patient and attentive. We were there for a couple of hours to visit and eat and he took our cue when we wanted to order, etc. As a special treat-the chef prepared for the 2 birthday ladies a beautiful Happy Birthday plate (handwritten in chocolate!) with a brownie and ice cream and berry garnish-just lovely. David kindly took our photo as well. A lovely lunch!
