“Great the 2nd time around w/ a few suggestions”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2012

This was my 2nd trip to Cuvee in the past year. On both trips, the food has been good to great. Unfortunately, it was raining on this trip so we missed my favorite part (the incredible outdoor patio). The general manager / wine director was great in helping us pick wines. While I have a tendency not to complain, I can understand some of the reviews here b/c the staff (when busy) are not incredibly attentive. Someone at our table decided to hop up and refill everyone's water glasses when our waitress disappeared. That being said, this was no huge deal and certainly understandable on a busy Saturday night. I would definitely recommend this restaurant as a solid choice in Napa. The gourmet mac-n-cheese is worth the trip alone!

“STOP!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2012

This is a must dine, in both my opinion and my husband's. The bill came to around $100 for the two of us, this included a glass a of wine, 2 desserts, 2 entrees and an appetizer. The potato souffle was amazing! I had the chicken dish again another amazing dish and my husband had the fish dish which he said was delightful! We had a glass of riesling. Then we had the chocolate cake dessert. We sat outside near the fire pit and though the restaurant was busy, it was still an intimate and romantic setting. we could even see the kitchen from where we were seated! The staff were attentive and prompts and we couldn't have asked for better service. Next time we're in California we are making the stop here!

“Bad Service? What service....?!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

Decided to stay close to our hotel last Saturday night and got a recommendation from the concierge...we were and early reservation due to availability-that's ok. Our table was the table directly outside/infront of the kitchen doors-glad it wasn't a date! but that's ok. Drinks were ordered and delivered in a timely fashion and good as drinks go. In short this is how the evening went...good food, prepared well...but we didnt get any attention from anyone in the place...everyone had to walk by us to get to the kitchen-everyone except our server and the manager and/or chef. My next drink was forgotten about until I finally grabbed our server as she flew by...it came a few minutes later. No one checked on our food the entire evening...and it wasnt even full. My third drink was similar to my 2nd in that i had to flag her down and then waited 10+ minutes to get it. They have this amazing firepit outside with seating...so we decided to just hang out for awhile...great atmosphere, just plan on getting your own drinks-its quicker and less frustrating. Since i am in the hospitality business, I start my gratuity at 20% and you have to work to get it down to 15%....i left 10%....too bad, because the food and atmosphere deserve a return...but I wont be back because of the service and so many other places to try in Napa.

“Try the chicken!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 15, 2012

I went here with a big group for a work dinner. It was very good. They have a special on Wednesday nights, 3 courses for $33. The wine was also good. The service was average, not too slow but not super fast either. They had bread sticks and crackers with cheese on the tables which was very tasty also. All in all it was a good time!

“Napa's best secret.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Hidden by vines climbing the walls and busy traffic sits this jewel of a restrurant with an awesome heated internal courtyard effect or inside dining with a killer bar. Wonderful menu featuring locally grown foods prepared in unique but tasty ways. I would reccommend it to everyone.
