I can't comment on the oysters, but they had the best clam chowder I've ever tasted! Located in a marketplace containing a few choice eateries. The atmosphere was vibrant and upbeat. A definite must try when visiting the area!!

The oysters are fresh & juicy befitting its name. The clam chowder is nearly as great-unique in a good way &other service attentive. We love the festive atmosphere at the Oxbow market also.

There are lots of options in the market but we were going for oysters at Hog fish. We loved the variety and had the large assorted platters. They taste very different from Florida oysters. Service was quick and It was great!!! Sweet oysters!!

Always the freshest oysters in Napa! they also make a killer clam chowder which they make to order right in front of you! The only downside is that it's very noisy as it is in the back corner of the Oxbow Market. but still a great place to do a quick lunch!

The restaurant is located inside of the Oxbow Public Market, and it is surrounded by other sit-down or to-go restaurants. They go through a TON of oysters. The oysters were very good. I ordered the grilled ones with mushrooms, and they were yummy. My favorite oysters are still at Acme House in New Orleans but this place comes close.

I usually get my fill of those bivalves at the Hog island in the Ferry Building Marketplace but this was my first experience in Napa at the Oxbow Public Market. And they have a one-up on the SF location... 50% off one selected oyster on Tuesdays and Wednesdays from 5 to 7pm. Cha-ching! And the Tricolore Salad was so good,... More

We were at Hog Island as part of the Marin Farm and Food Tour and loved it. The oysters are perfect, the shuckers informative and the view is beautiful. No wonder it takes 4 months to reserve the best tables!

The setting in the hustle of the oxbow market in downtown napa is perfect. Sit at the bar and watch the shuckers shuck your buttery oceanic bites of bliss! We samples all six offerings and they were probably the best oysters I've ever had. It's a little pricey for the dozen, but worth it. The mignonette leave the essence of... More

The oysters here are outstanding and the service is friendly and fast.Particularly liked the Kodomo oysters;and the grilled oysters ( all 3 styles ) are fantastic. Best value is Tuesday and Wednesday night for local's nights when the Hog oysters are about half price. Atmosphere,being inside the Oxbow,is great.I'm a local and visit as often as I can.

Loved the location (in Oxbow - "open" market with nibbles, restaurants, shops) and the food was excellent. Oysters and Seafood stew with fresh, warm rolls to sop it all up! Soooooo good! Server didn't have much of a personality but we didn't have to deal with her too much so not a big deal. We enjoyed the food so much... More
