Bad food. Stay away.

Nice setting in Napa with a river view. Bad food. Their food is overcooked. It looks pale. They skip the better ingredients, and serve more potatoes, salad leaves and bread than anything else. They put some distasteful oils that ruin the taste. They serve it on stone boards instead of plates (I... read more

Limited menu and wine list, but excellent food, wonderful flavors, beautiful presentations. Staff is exceptional. Some specials, but the menu has wonderful selections. Excellent value for the food and service. Highly recommend.

My wife and I had high hopes for this restaurant having passed up on it during prior trips to Napa. We arrived for lunch on a Saturday before it got busy with other first timers. We ordered an appetizer and two lunch plates. Take note that the staff have been told by the owner not to deliver you your main... More

Service and ambiance were great. The foie gras was stupendous. Reservations for lunch on a Friday were needed.

Revisited after 3 years with 2 couples and an infant. We were lucky enough to to be there the day after the Foie Gras ban lift and enjoyed a lovely Foie appetizer. Enjoyed oysters, Niçoise salad, Levain crusted lobster, duck liver mouse, bouillabaisse, duck roti, and bacon wrapped quail. All delicious. Desserts are a must. Service was excellent and polished.best... More

Service was very good, friendly and attentive. Sorry to say the food was not as good. Appetizers are the best. The main dishes had too much cumin.......

If you want or want to get introduced to excellent French Cuisine, this is it. We ate in every place you should eat in wine country and we managed to squeeze in three trips here. The Pate De Campaign.. I had three times and the meals where out of sight!

It was a rainy December afternoon and we decided to pretend we were in Paris and have lunch at Angele. The dining room is cozy and you can almost feel as if you are in Paris with the view of the river. People all around us were relaxed and enjoying their lunches - cassoulet, a wonderful burgundy, and delicious desserts.... More

We've been going to Angele for more than a dozen years and have felt a decline over the years, sometimes coinciding with a change in chefs. The menu is heavy in old-fashioned french dishes...pate, pork, duck etc. plus a lot of cheese. If this is your preference you may like the options. The execution from the kitchen does not stand...
