What I was most amazed with at this restaurant was the wait staff...Just superior in every way, polite, mannerly, made me feel like they really cared that we had a good experience and a good meal. When you walk in the door beware of the delicious looking pies, I bought one and gave to the maids at the hotel where... More

The location had great service, was very clean and of course the consistently good food we find at all their locations. We like to come here with our 2 1/2 year old as she loves the atmosphere.

While visiting Napa we were looking for reasonable dining that would also appeal to a teen, we stopped at the Black Bear Diner. Not fancy, but well prepared hearty portions at reasonable prices. The service was friendly and efficient. We found ourselves at the Black Bear twice in the week!

We were in Napa for a week so stopped by Black Bear Diner for breakfast. It was quite good. We had their chicken apple sausage with eggs. Service was good. I like the cute bear pictures. Its diner food and casual, but nice to go to in Napa Valley.

This was our second visit to Napa and we made a point of including a trip to the Black Bear Diner. The food is excellent, the portions are very generous and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. Always a delight.

We came for brunch on a Sunday late-morning and we feared long lines. We did wait about 15 minutes but we were very impressed with the courteous and efficient wait process - we were greeted by a friendly gentlemen who sought out arriving diners to add to the wait list. The head-set communication device he wore seemed to work very... More

Napa has a lot of outstanding upscale restaurants which I love but, if you're like me, you don't want to eat EVERY meal at a gormet restaurant. I wasn't familiar with this place, but found it to be a very good break from the finer dining places. The food was quite good with generous servings. The menu was quite varied... More

Have eaten here with my parents on many occasions, and every meal has been tasty. Portions are really generous, too. Our waiter was courteous and attentive, as I have come to expect at this restaurant, and I would definitely recommend it to travelers who find themselves in Napa needing a reasonably priced restaurant for a good meal.
