While visiting Napa, heard among the locals that this restaurant was a must. Glad to have been pointed in the direction of Fume; arrived early for a quiet lunch, and left absolutely delighted by the exceptional food (the calamari is perfection) and gracious service. Highly recommend a meal here should you find yourself in wine country!

Had dinner with some locals and this was the place to go! Can't go wrong on any of the meals, and the service was prompt and efficient! The specials seemed to go fast so you might want to get there a little earlier, but it's well worth it! Parking is easy and it's right off the main highway. If you... More

It's been a couple of years but we'd always enjoyed our previous experiences. The service is still very good, but the food while good does not merit the high price. My husband had the sausage & shrimp pasta and I had the flat iron steak with fries both meals were good and well prepared. We had a calamari appetizer, which... More

It's like eating in a boiler factory; you pretty much have to yell to carry on a conversation. If you love that 'restaurant buzz' than this place if for you, just be ready for sign language.

If you are coming to Napa this restaurant is outstanding! The inside is cozy and during the warmer months they have an outdoor seating area (perfect area to hang out with kids). I had the spicy Cajun fettuccini and it was wonderful! Others in my party had the risotto, pizza and seared scallops. Not one complaint, only high praises for... More

If you want good food for breakfast, lunch or dinner, Fume is the place to go! The pastas are good and the pear salad is wonderful.

The food was delicious. Everyone was happy with the quality and taste. Our waiter was very busy and not as attentive as we would have liked. I wanted to go back to Fume a second time it was that good.

We chose this restaurant based on its very high rating here on Trip Advisor. But from the very beginning, it was if our waiter couldn't wait for us to get out of there. Practically yanked menus out of our hands, kept asking if we were ready to order, obviously just wanted to turn over the table. The food was decent... More

Good food and good service. The oven roasted free range chicken was delicious but was the only thing on the menu that wasn't made with a lot of creamy or cheesy sauces.
