The owners of Fish Story decided that fish is a tough sell in the Napa Valley, so Fish Story is closed. They say that they'll be back with a new concept in Spring..

I hate to leave bad reviews (if you check my history, this is actually my very first "1 star" review), but, this place was just that bad. My wife and I had a pretty unmemorable dinner there last month on a weekend trip up to Napa. That by its self would have been good enough for me to just say... More

While our food and wine were very good, this restaurant has not found its soul... It is too light to be intimate, and so broken up in sections to feel a little like a diner, but everything is done in top notch quality.. Can not really complain, but it was not a special special dining experience, which I ray and... More

The place was decorated contemporary, but with lures (???). Very good wine list, and we both had the Sole dish, which was served on top of a German potato salad. Tasted great!

We had dinner here by recommendation of our hotel concierge, and loved it. The oysters were delicious and the tuna belly salad was a delightful spin on a Niçoise, one of my favorites, and was incredibly delicious! Our server, who was engaging and entertaining, recommended a fish from Hawaii I had not had, and it was amazing, exactly as she... More

We at here on our last night in town. It was a cool evening but we wanted to eat outside next to the river. They turned on the heaters for us and it was perfect. The menu was seasonal and our food was delicious. Service was a little slow but we weren't in a hurry to leave.

We took our son-in-law to the wine country for his birthday and finished a busy day with dinner in Napa. It was “Crush” weekend and their had been a festival in the downtown area which worked to our advantage because we had no problem being seated at the restaurant even though we had no reservations. I had never tried (actually... More
