Napa is still reeling from the earthquake so there are several downtown restaurants which are not yet open. Even next to Tarla, the hotel is still shut down. So finding this little gem was a welcome experience. Combining Greek with Middle Eastern food certainly was something different in Napa. My lamb shank was incredible and my wife's lamb burger was...

Tarla mediterranean Grill is a cozy little restaurant in Napa CA. We had lunch with our family while visiting Napa/Vallejo. Food is very delicious. I appreciated the Vegan options which lead me to order the Barley salad. It was very colorful and full of flavors. Their Hummus was a bit salty for my taste but tasted good with the pita... More

This place has a greek theme which is a bit different to the many italian or asian restaurants you may come across. We shared a meze plate for starters - the courgette fritters were really nice. And loved the fresh warm pitta bread with dips like baba ghanoush. I had sea bass for main course - very tasty. My husband... More

We just arrived in Napa today. We had made reservations at Tarla based on the excellent reviews here on Tripadvisor. After a few minutes to find a good parking space, we went in and were a little surprised to find it largely empty. However, the food was top shelf and the service was even better! We got the dip trio... More

We have a few Mediterranean restaurants in KC so I thought I knew what to expect. The choice in food was more modern than I had expected. It was very good just different. The bar was very lively and it was very busy. People were even eating at the bar since the tables were in use. We were past off... More

I love Mediterranean food, and Mediterranean Grill serves superb food. The lamb shishkebob is some of the finest I ever tasted. This restaurant is by far my favorite in Downtown Napa.

I have met several friends here for lunch and it never disappoints. They have great vegetarian options along side yummy lamb and other meats. I will say that I don't always feel comfortable when sitting here (inside); the tables are a little close to each other and the chairs are hard. Outside seating is nice though.

I've never been the type to review a restaurant before but after my trip to Tarla I feel in this case it is necessary. The service was horrendous. I visited with 5 of my girl friends and one of the girls wasn't brought her food until the rest of us were finished eating. I understand that mistakes happen and they... More

Leaving Walnut Creek with friends for a day trip to Napa, we booked lunch at Tarla. We had small plates of very well prepared Mediterranean food. There was extraordinary attention to detail in the preparation and the presentation of each dish. The wait staff was great, treating each of us as if we were family. Kudos to Tarla!

My partner and I decided to check out Tarla after reading some reviews on the internet. We were happy with the meal. We started with the dolmas (yum!) and a cheese dip, which were both good. I had the musakka and my partner had the lamb burger. I loved my dish, so I would recommend Tarla to anyone in the... More
