We been here many times over the years and find the dining experience exceptional. For myself, I started with a Plymouth Gin Martini extra dry with two olives, and we shared an interesting Cheese Plate during cocktail hour. We started with the Sizzling Beach Rock, a combination Appetizer of Garlic Seared Shrimp, Soy Glazed Spare Ribs, Lemon Grass Chicken Skewers... More

This was the third time we've been to Napa Rose. The first time was fabulous, the second time good but not as good as the first. This time was awesome again. We were staying at the Grand Californian and we were also celebrating my husband's birthday. It was the perfect meal. Our waiter was very good in helping us select... More

For about $90 per person you can enjoy an appetizer, main course, wine, cocktail, and after dinner expresso or cappuccino. The Buffalo Carpaccio Appetizer was excellent as was the mixed green salad, Fish, and Duck. Service was excellent, and this is the ultimate special occasion restaurant if you are visiting Disneyland, California Adventure or attending a conference.

When you are going to pay $300 for dinner, tip, tax, and. $110 bottle of wine you want top notch food. It was good, but not great. It was fun to watch the chefs work in the open kitchen. The sommeliers were knowledgable and had stories about the wines. We had a very nice Napa Cab that paired well with... More

We do not mind paying for good food and have been to many Disney restaurants and have enjoyed the food and paid the price because the food and service were worth it but this is NOT one of those places. The waiter felt the need to explain everything on the menu even though we told him we were not interested... More

This a great place to go for a celebration or special occasion. While it is a little on the pricey side for Disneyland it is in par with restaurants on the same level for food and service. It is quiet so it is idea for visiting especially since you do not feel rushed to eat and get out. For those... More

My expectations weren't that high to begin with, but the food was mediocre at best. They weren't busy, so we walked right in at 7:00 p.m. The scallops were gritty and after I asked, the waiter took them off the bill. We also had the tomato bisque, a salad, fish of the day and the hot rock appetizer. The wine... More

Many don't know about this place, tucked away in a hotel few may feel they can afford. But it is worth discovering. Top chefs are creating true meal magic here and you will find yourself making embarrassing yummy noises as one dish after the other is presented to delight you. The wine list matches the food, but it is the... More

By far the best restaurant in the Disney parks, Napa Rose provides food and wine pairings that are remarkable! I've eaten here quite a few times, and each time I am blown away. Everything is so precise and perfect, from cooking to plating, it's a dining experience you won't soon forget. The food alone puts Napa Rose in the excellent... More

To any of you who gave this restaurant and chef less than four stars( especially 2 or 1). You people don't know good food. Chef sutton puts out nothing but the best food with the best ingredients freaked with higher than Disney standards. Napa rose is the only place my wife has ever and never try fish anywhere else.
