The service was impeccable. The restaurant recently reopened in it's former location after the 2014 earthquake. Their food was 'on point' and delicious. We enjoyed trying and sharing several small plates. The squash blossoms were amazing!

I previously visited before the Quake I must say what a great revival an obvious step up in the kitchen the food is better than it was, if you can believe that, and the wine pairings are spot on, can't wait to stop in my next visit to the valley!

We were so excited to find that Carpe Diem had reopened the week prior to our arrival in Napa. We cancelled another reservation in order to have dinner here. The service, food and ambiance was just as perfect as it is every year when we visit. Flatbread, chicken tacos, beef skewers and fries were the perfect combo for us to... More

We had a light dinner here, but the ambience was poor as we were put in the back room which echoed every sound and really made it difficult to quietly talk to each other. Food was basic and OK. We had pasta. The wine which was recommended to go with it was not very good and we were not given... More

After almost a year long closure to make repairs suffered in the 2014 Napa earthquake, Carpe Diem is back serving wonderful food at its Main Street location. I took the family there on Sunday evening and am happy to report that the food and the service is superb! Everything on the menu is excellent, and, consequently, I would be very... More

Carpe Diem was going strong and expanding when the earthquake hit in August 2014. Scott Kendall didn't give us, and tonight he's back in business in the same location. Expect great things and absolutely wonderful eats.

Although they had relocated to the Oxbow market hall temporarily we had a wonderful evening at Carpe Diem. The host was welocoming and a lot of fun. The food was excellent and the drinks even better.

The food is excellent, and while in the Oxbow, they have done a fabulous job! Great food, great wine and great cocktails. One of the few places in Oxbow that has the cocktail option. The staff is fun and very friendly. The restaurant they had on Second Street was damaged by the earthquake. They will be back in soon! Hope... More

I researched this place before trip to Napa. The bar, now in the Oxbow Public Market, serves great wine and excellent food. Must tries: truffle french fries, side salad (arugula, pickled onions and hint of dressing), steamed pork bun, quack and cheese (not enough cheese flavor?), short rib sliders. We stayed too short a time to come back here for... More
