We enjoyed every dish at this restaurant. Our kudos to the management and chef. Our waitress was knowledgeable, fun and pleasant. The restaurant is located in a hotel. It is not too large so reservations are important. My husband had a sampler which was 3 entrees and a dessert. I had an entree and ate my husband's dessert which was... More

We went here for our 31st anniversary hoping for a nice and romantic dinner. The food and service was very good. The problem seems to be a noise factor. It seems like they try to be a high end restaurant but yet want the bar scene, too. Go but don't expect it to be quiet.

This restaurant has a somewhat limited choice if you are a picky eater - but all the items on the menu are excellent - the service is very good - a little on the eccentric side - which is great

Reservations are necessary. The corkage charge is only $15.00 We ate there on a Sunday night and it was packed.

Our hotel had recommended this restaurant, and as they are so well rated on Trip Advisor, we decided to go. Went for "Happy Hour" and sat at the bar where "Happy Hour" patrons are designated to sit, rather than the tables. We were lucky to get the last 2 seats. The server came over promptly and took our order. The... More

I was a little underwhelmed when I looked at the menu posted outside Jo Le, but the descriptions do not do the food justice. Like many places in Napa/Sonoma, at Jo Le they make the most pedestrian foods taste outrageously delicious. I had a salad that sounded fairly straightforward on the menu, but it was an interesting mix of grilled... More

Belly up to the bar at JoLe for the real deal in sustainable, locally sourced cuisine, boutique wine list, and savvy staff. This is the place for a showcase meal without the bright lights and bravado that can be Napa proper.

The rating for this restaurant should have 6 stars. We ate there our first night in town and everything we ordered was top drawer. Since they have no competitors in town that compare to them at all, we returned the next night and it was the same experience. Please note that this is the little sister to the incredible La... More

This was recommended to us by our hosts at a local B and B that we were staying at. We ordered the four course tasting menu and had a wide variety of offerings. My wife had the wine pairing. The courses were small but delightful with amazing sauces and flavors. The service was excellent and my wife reported that the... More

This was by far the best meal I ate in California, accompanied by splendid wines. I had the three course degustation and thoroughly enjoyed every course. The wines were well matched and full of fruit, which I always love! The service was very good. I was alone but did not feel out of place, which I think was due to... More
