Lovely facilities for First Taste Napa. Upstairs area was decorated beautifully and made it seem magic. Acoustics are pretty incredible as well. Visited after earthquake and flood downstairs in City Winery. Would not have known if not told so.

Great to have a spot to watch a show and eat with friends. Large stage. Servers very attentive to the fact that audience is there to watch a show and not the waitstaff (they duck when walking in line of sight). Food is so-so.

Loved the venue, great food, great wine, would love to come again! We sat at the bar which was perfect for us, and the chicken pot pies were almost like my homemade, great acoustics, not a bad seat in the house...Leon rocked it playing all of the oldies!!

We saw a movie here and it was such a nice venue to see an old movie. It's a great way to end an evening of wine and food.

We have been going to shows here at this historic Napa Valley Opera House for years. We enjoy going. It is now run by the City Winery. As such, they now have dinners and more drinks with the shows they bring in. The show line up has also improved some with it now being part of the national City Winery... More

There are no "bad" seats in the house. The stairs we a little hard to navigate if you are unsure of your step. Be patient leaving, there is only one exit

We were huge and regular fans of the intimate Opera House venue where all the seats were good and COMFORTABLE. Really disappointed with the new incarnation as City Winery. Tables and chairs crowded in literally right up against the stage if you are unfortunate to have "front row" seats. You need to turn your chair awkwardly to the side to... More

I have had some of my best concert experiences here; Herb Alpert and Lani Hall, Indigo Girls, Bruce Hornsby. Solid accoustics with a very intimate setting make this a great place to really appreciate a musical performance.

Of course it would be as it's in Napa Valley - but great venue, loads of wine choices and good food. Went to see a live show, so you can eat your dinner whilst watching the show.
