Fish is King

Fish is king, but a bit pricey. I just wish there were more choices of fish on the menu for the entrees. I had the Halibut and my wife had the Trout. Both were excellent. It was not full, but it was still hard to hear.

This is a high-end seafood restaurant on the Napa river. We sat outside on a very comfortable evening. They had heaters to keep us comfortable as well. They have a sommelier to help with wine selection; we had beer instead. Service was OK but not excellent. It took too long to get drinks delivered, to get another round, and the... More

Fabulous dinner here - great location, delicious food and excellent service. Would recommend. Ironically enough neither of us ate seafood - my husband had a steak which he assured me was excellent and I had a beatiful vegetarian pasta dish. Their lemonade is the best we have ever tasted!

this is the second time at this restaurant and it was excellent again. I had the recommended sole, cooked to perfection. My husband had the trout, no bones and great. Bro-in-law had the prawns, which he is an expert in, and was very happy with the slightly spicey prep. My sister had chicken, which was good, except for a gravy... More

Wow.... what a wonderful dining experience! This place is really nice inside. We were seated off the main area into a separate room, which was just beautiful... by the window. The restaurant also has a spacious outdoor dining area along the Riverfront as well. We had pan seared Halibut and Samon dishes... delectable! HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS restaurant.

Unbelievable meal, great people and incredible service by Joellen. Coming from New England I wondered why i would eat seafood in Napa, but as it turned out it was the best dinner of our entire trip. The Ceviche was stupendous, the oysters were sublime and the Louis Bib Shrimp and Dungenous crap salad was wonderful. Also try the halibut as... More

We had a great dinner at Fish Story. They were wonderful about pushing our anniversary dinner back an hour. Our wine tastings had run long and we were worried we were going to miss our reservation. The hostess was professional and so accommodating. The wine list was HUGE and there were so many great selections. The food was excellent. My... More
