We came out of an early movie, looking for a place to have a late lunch, and came upon Norman Rose Tavern. Neither of us had ever eaten here before, but it looked very nice from the outside so we just took a chance. Good choice! Both of us were very pleased with our lunches. My friend had the grilled...

What a great place for a Sunday afternoon lunch in Napa. We ate out on the enclosed patio and had a variety of meals among us but the burgers got the prize. Outstanding food, attentive & friendly service (good job, Daniel) and good value. We highly recommend "Norman Rose".

So here we go.....our staff met at Norman Rose after school last week with a GREAT turnout. The place was pretty empty at 3:30, especially at the bar so all seemed great. I am not a sophisticated drinker, I should have just ordered a soda. I don't like beer or wine....but I like a sweet mixed drink once in awhile.... More

Food is always fresh and amazing. They seem to always be innovating and redesigning their menu. I have been taking clients here for the past couple years. Can not beat the location or easy parking. Keep up the great work!

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
