“We Must Have Hit An Off Night”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 17, 2013

We have enjoyed meals here on several occasions and were looking forward to another pleasant experience. This time we hit the wall.

Food: I had the lemon chicken. A large, perfectly cooked piece of chicken absolutely devoid of any flavor whatsoever. It must have missed the spice station. It sat in a watery lemon sauce that produced less flavor than if they had just poured some bottled lemon juice over it. Our guest had a steak salad which was a bunch of meat thrown over an assortment of vegetables and lettuce. My wife had the scallops which had been prepared to look like store-bought raviolis and tasted about as good. The scallops were cooked beyond recognition and were inedible.

Service: A very nice young lady who cleared each dish as it was empty, then as our guest sat there eating her salad, brought over the dessert menu. My wife ordered something and instead of waiting for our guest to finish her meal, our server brought the dessert and the check to the table, prompting our guest to comment, "seems she's in a rush."

Rookie service, poor food, especially for the prices charged Probably won't be back.

“Upscale Asian”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013

This restaurant was recommended to us by an employee of an area hotel. The food was good. We enjoyed the fried rice and orange beef. The night we were there, it seemed that they were short on servers. The servers they did had were working very hard and remained cheerful and attentive notwithstanding the number of guests for which they were responsible, but it did slow them down a bit. Overall it was a very good dining experience and we would recommend the restaurant and will plan to return next time we're in Napa.

“Very good fish dishes”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

I have eaten at this restaurant probably 10 times. I always get fish and it's always good. The sea bass is wonderful, but this most recent time I had halibut. It was wonderful and came with a nice assortment of sides. One person in our group ordered the walnut pineapple prawns and she did everything but lick the plate. I highly recomment this place.

“Pretty good. Nice location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

This was our first time eating here. We had Pot Stickers, each of us had a bowl of soup (large enough to split!), and Chow Mein. All was tasty. The menu reminds us a little of PF Changs. The food is a little better there though. We will be back!
