Savor contemporary cuisine inspired by Napa Valley in a sophisticated, vibrant, yet comfortable atmosphere with emphasis on seasonal, organic ingredients and simple, fresh flavors. Flown in from certified waters of the cold Pacific northwest, the finest oysters are served in the Raw Seafood Bar. Experience innovative small plates, perfect for sharing, delectable big plates and playful desserts that are deceptively delicious. The sommelier will help complement any Bistro experience with thoughtfully chosen wine from the 4,000-bottle wine cellar. Cutting-edge cocktails are infused with fresh fruit purees, boutique liquors and bitters. Gather for dinner or cocktails in a social scene that rivals the energy of the innovative cuisine.

This restaurant is unique in that they make their lemon drop using cotton candy as a starter. They place it in their martini glass and pour the contents of the drink (Ketel Citroen, fresh lemon) over the cotton candy. Watch it melt and then get another one! So pretty and delish!

The drinks are fantastic. If you want a place to sit, you have to get there early as there is always a line. The eats at the bar area are discounted during happy hour and are great.

The Atlantis Hotel, Casino and Spa is new, well run and very popular. Located on the second floor away from the noise of the Casino is the Napa Bistro. Happy Hour (referred to as Social Hour) runs every day from 4-6 pm. During "Social Hour", all of the small plate food items and cocktails are 1/2 price. Perhaps the best... More

This place draws a crowd. It is a nice bar for a drink and an appetizer. They offer a half price happy hour. The stuff is worth the happy hour price. If it is not happy hour the value is not there.

Happy Hour is the best. It's at 4- 6 pm every night. Half price appetizers and drink specials. You have to try the Moscow Mule. It comes in a copper cup. Citron Vodka, GInger Beer, lemon-lime, crushed mint and ice. So tasty. There were 8 of us so we each ordered 2 appetizers, including oysters.
