There was not one item our group of 12 ordered that wasn't a hit! The special was mini corn dogs...a definite show stopper! A Napa must!

Coming from tiny Delaware, we were astonished to walk in to a Napa bar and see a Delaware Blue Hen Chicken on the wall. We felt right at home! And the wine list is superb!

Sliders, chili and beer. After a ton of wine tastings and some really expensive restaurants, this was a really nice change. It's weird, we rated Morimoto "average" and this "above average," but for what they are, that is the proper rating. Their chili has a little bit of a sweetness to it that I loved. Never made it over to... More

Stopped in here for a burger and football watching. TV's are hanging over the bar area. Hard to see them from some tables, but glad to find a spot anyway. Great menu and amazing lamb burger! Really delicious. Service was quick and efficient. This is a lively pub type spot, casual dining with good food and drink. Great fries as... More

Napa is not really known for their sports bars but I thinks Norman Rose is the next best thing. Great vibe in there. Feel classy while watching the game. Plus the food is amazing

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
