Had the oysters and chowder, which was phenomenal. Laid back and relaxing environment, Oxbow market is great to walk around.

As far as oysters go, top notch! Plus a good variety. The other item we order was the clam chowder. We got our oysters, finished them, and waited maybe another 10 minutes for the chowder. No biggie, just saying. Service - your seating at a counter.....so yes. Is this the "best" restaurant in Napa???? NO. But for your oyster fix... More

We sat at the bar inside and ordered the clam chowder. It is delicious and was made to order in individual pans right in front of us. Real butter, half and half and no gloppy thickeners. Potatoes and herbs and spices and then.....a huge helping of beautiful clams in the shell served as soon as they pop open. My mouth... More

I wish I'd remember our server's name (it was unusual) as she was great and I told her I'd mention her. She's worked there for 6 years, was knowledgeable about the food/oysters, and gave excellent recommendations. There is a slight view from some of the tables (river) and there's outdoor dining available. I had the best oysters I've had in... More

This is one of our favorite places to visit in Napa. We love it so much we came here 2 nights in a row. The first night just for oysters and wine and the second we had a full dinner. Atmosphere is friendly, vibrant and the service is great. We sat on the patio and then around the bar. The... More

OMG - the Best Clam Chowder I have ever had! Full of fresh clams in the shell, so full of flavor, soooooo delicious**** Worth any wait! Raw clams on the shell were good, not crazy memorable. COme here if just for the chowder- we were trying various foods in Oxbow market so chose not to get full here.

After coming to this small little oyster bar restaurant, I can officially say, that I am ruined! This place has the best oysters, and the selection of oysters I have ever been to, and I have been to plenty as far as from East to the West. Their New England clam chowder is is even better than any I have... More
