“crazy drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

We like to go to the 3rd floor for the view and a drink. There is an outside and inside area. The bartenders are excellent and very well versed in all kinds of cocktails. There are many different concoctions that they will make you and the view is over the napa river and of the hills.

“Delish dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

We had a wonderful dinner here over Thanksgiving weekend. The food was delicious and the atmosphere was the best- excellent music, fun, bustling- honestly one of the highlights during our time in Napa.

“Good, not great; maybe better for cocktails than dinner”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 25, 2013

We had a nice enough meal here. Sat on the second floor. Comfortable seats and tables.

The food was good. Not great, but good. A little pricey for what we got.

Service was very attentive and very good.

It's an interesting interior. Very nice.

Several locals have said they go to The Thomas at Fagiani's for the great cocktails, then go elsewhere for dining. That's consistent with our experience.

“Top of the world Ma”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 23, 2013

Top of Fagiani's on Main Street
Great food! Pricey but worth it.
Try their marrow appetizer-yummy
They have big heaters so sitting outside is very comfortable.
Best to come before sunset to enjoy the view and colored sky.
Excellent wait staff. Can't wait to go back.

“Slow Service - Great Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

Love the food here even though the menu is limited. I just wish the service matched the quality of the food. We had 8:00 p.m. reservations and were seated at 8:40 p.m. This can happen when people linger at the table. We weren't in a hurry so this was easy to overlook.

When we were seated we waited for 10 minutes before anyone came to the table. A woman finally arrived and said, 'I'm _______ and I just stopped by to say hi'. That was our server! She had a very large party to serve next to us and then a table of 8 people arrived and that was her table too. She just had too much to do.

The saving grace was that we brought our own bottle of wine. The sommelier arrived and opened the bottle and we asked her if she could help find someone to take our order. She was wonderful. She said she would take our order and from that point forward she took charge of our table!

It was a bigger problem than just this one server being overwhelmed. One of our party ordered a drink from the bar instead of having wine, and we had to ask the man pouring water to hunt it down. When it arrived, literally all the ice was melted! That has never happened to us anywhere else.

This is our second time there. This service was worse than our first visit, but not by much. The chef obviously knows what he is doing. Perhaps he can step out of the kitchen and supervise the dining room too!

To end on a high note, the food was really delicious!
