The service was good, our waiter attentive, their truffle fries were the highlight of our afternoon, and I'd definitely get their lamb burger again. I need to return to try more of the items on their menu!

We had a great meal at Norman Rose. The truffle fries are awesome! I had the thai sweet potato soup which was great. It was a favorite restaurant of our group.

We had been traveling for about 18 hours, and we were exhausted but hungry. We wanted simple, fast and good, and this place was that and more. We went back for more truffle oil parmesan fries the next night because they were so memorable.

I think this restaurant served the best burger that I have had in a long time, really!! It was my second time to dine here (2010 was the last time) and the burger was great then, so I had to go back for another one this visit to Napa!! I wasn't disappointed!!

Some colleagues and I went to Norman Rose in search of a quality "foodie" style lunch where we could also watch some football on a Saturday afternoon. This place delivered. I can't tell you how long I searched online for a sports bar in the Napa area that had a menu that looked enticing. Well, this place is it. Great... More

One of the wineries recommended us to stop here for dinner as the Norman Rose Tavern is will known by the locals to have great burgers. The burgers were very good and the fries were great as well. It does get very busy here so try to go a bit early or later to miss the rush at dinner. The... More

It was Sunday around 1 pm and the place looked full but they had a nice table for myself and two friends. My friends come to Norman Rose about once a month but this was just my third visit and it made me realize why they keep coming back. For one thing, the specials are really special! They are hand...

It is not easy to find a restaurant in Napa where two people can get a very good meal for under $50, but it can be done at Norman Rose. The food is not complicated, but not boring either. My husband particularly liked the fact that his French fries were crisp and hot. They have a great selection of beers... More

We enjoyed a late dinner here on a Saturday night. The space is comfortable and inviting. Our dinner was good - typical bar/tavern food - and service was attentive and helpful. A good spot for a casual and affordable meal.

This was an excellent place to eat. Food was delicious and service was great. Was walking distance from our B&B. Menu was unique and somewhat different from other restaurants. Nothing bad to be said about this restaurant. Would eat there again if we ever get back to the area.
