We dropped into Carpe Diem on our way home from dinner while in Napa. We were sat at the bar, and given a menu by the jovial barmen. There was an extensive selection of wine by the glass and beers. We harpooned a red and white between myself and my new wife, and then I got a bit of steam... More

From the minute we walked in the door everything was perfect. Located in downtown Napa, the location is easy to find for those touring downtown Napa. Our party of 4 ordered very different items and no one was disappointed. Salad, the gourmet mac and cheese, even the burgers here are a cut above the ordinary. Our waitress was knowledgeable and...

I forgot to write a review when I was here in early August but was unfortunately reminded with pictures of the damage from the earthquake. Hopefully this restaurant didn't suffer too much damage but if and when it reopens, if it hasn't already, please try it out. Our waitress was great and knowledgeable of all food being served. The fries... More

My wife and I stopped in for a glass of wine and a snack. We ordered both wine and a cheese and charcuterie plate. We relied on the waitress for recommendations. Each recommendation was spot on. Prices were right. The place was very busy. We will visit for a full dinner on our next trip to Napa. Friendly service too!

What a delicious meal!! The food was not only interesting but flavorful and unique. Everything was well presented and the staff was extremely familiar with the menu items. We tasted a variety of appetizers, salads, a pizza and main courses. The portions were moderately sized, which helped us leave room for dessert. Each of the dishes clearly expressed their specific...

All the dishes we tasted were extraordinary! The thin pizza with arugula and mushrooms was the best one I have eaten in my life. I wish I could have ordered 80!! Service is great too.

lively restaurant and bar with great food, fun atmosphere, and great service - portions were a little small for my husband, but tacos and flatbread pizza were to die for!

The best dinner I have had in a long time! The food was delicious and the service was great. Our server was attentive, helpful, and very familiar with their menu. The menu is a bit small but have never been disappointed. Scallops and tuna were very tasty last visit and the twix dessert is a must!! Perfect location downtown with... More

First night in Napa on vacation with family. Food was terrific! Wine amazing! Service incredible! We are from the Washington DC area and had a wonderful dinner 2 years ago when last visited wine country. Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting the area. You will not be disappointed!
