Tasty seafood in Nap

Fish Story sits right along the river, we sat outside in the patio and enjoyed the 4th of July festivities. The location is great, if you are staying in downtown Napa, it's a nice walk. The restaurant seemed intimidating in size, very large and grand. I prefer sitting outside in as often as I can... read more

Our food was horrible. Inedible. I was heartbroken because we went for a special occasion. So sad. I was tempted to not pay the bill as I sent back my food twice. I will never eat there again.

Never had a meal I could enjoy. They have a prime location in downtown Napa, but their food was awful. They will reopen with a new menu and new concept I understand.

Travelers will find the building, but not the restaurant. It is closed for an unknown reason. The service was pretty bad and food marginal.

We made the mistake of ordering from the food and wine pairing menu. It was way too much food and pricey. However, the service was good, and we shared our meal with the table next to us!

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!
