After reading all the reviews, I was a bit dubious about trying Fish Story out, but we ended up going anyway. Food was great (my wife and I both ordered the sole), and service was doing great right up to when we finished the entree. Big gap between the busboy picking up our finished entree and seeing our waiter again.... More

This restaurant has a great location but a very limited menu. Our entres were sole and dorade...both were small....don't go here hungry. The dorade was totally tasteless. Wine list is impressive but that's nothing new in this town. If you want to spend a lot of money for a soso dinner, visit this place.

On Friday, myself and bunch of my girlfriends visited Fish Story for happy hour, the drinks were very good (great selection of wines on tap, which I always appreciate because it is more environmentally friendly), and a decent selection of food (the frito misto was greasy and salty, but the shrimp tacos and the ahi tartare were delicious). The staff... More

Visited with a party of 6 persons. The service from our waiter was ssllooow! We waited an hour and fifty minutes to get our entrees. The waiter apologized for the long delay, but the manager never visited our table nor spoke to any in our party. Most unfortunate because once we did receive our entrees, they were all very tasty....

The lunch experience was okay . The portions was fairly small . I ordered the Shrimp Niçoise salad . There were three medium sized shrimp sliced in half and laid out to make it look like more shrimp than you really get. A nice outdoor patio over looking the river walkway so good for people watching. When the orders were... More

We had a big group and sat on the patio. We had great service. I had the Sole and it was pretty good. All was fresh and served hot and fresh. Ready and available staff made this a notable experience. All 10 of us enjoyed our meal! Thank you!

Stopped by yesterday 8/28/2014. They are up and running after the earthquake. Everything was clean and ready to go. We ate at the bar and my wife had a salmon salad while I had the Shrimp Tempura with a mixed green salad with that included peaches. Both meals were delicious. My wife had the Frank Family Chardonnay and I had... More

Once upon a time, I was excited to try a fish restaurant in a good location along the river in downtown Napa. We were greeted warmly upon our entrance and seated outside with a river view. That's where the story takes a turn for the worse. The menu was unimpressive. For a restaurant with fish in the title, the options... More

Everything about my sister's and my meal at Fish Story was perfect. The service, the food, the wine, the manager....everything! It was our second to last night in Napa. We decided to get the Chef's tasting menu, along with the reasonably priced ($35.00) wine pairings. Everything from that point on was positively delicious. We started with ahi tuna tartare, paired...
