That Risotto, fettuccine , spring rolls ,butterscotch pudding still invigorates my taste buds! What an awesome restaurant! During a recent visit , was able to try few dishes. The bistro apparently owned by the chef himself serves food that has taste and affection it seems. Every dish from the veg selection was crafted to perfection. Great service and not very... More

Wonderful food served by a friendly, attentive staff. Very nice atmosphere in a neighborhood restaurant probably not frequented regularly by tourists. Try the lamb burger. We will return the next time we're in Napa.

This restaurant was recommended to us by one of the wine hosts during a visit. We actually cancelled a reservation at another restaurant and were so glad we did. Great food and service in a very relaxed setting. It will now be on our list for future trips.

I really loved this restaurant. The food was incredible. To start, we had the oysters and lamb meatballs, both of which were delicious but the oysters (which I believe were a special) were incredible. Then my partner had a special for main- the fish kebab with mushroom risotto. He loved it. I had the steak which came with a salad... More

We ate here after a long day of travel and finally making it to Napa. We made reservations a week ahead of time and I was glad we did. Best meal we had while we were in town. We stayed downtown so it was in walking distance. The food was excellent. My husband had the halibut and a salad,0. I... More

We had lunch for 4. We were first to be seated on Saturday, in a nice corner. Although we had excellent service, choice of tables, immediate seating, hostess, server, and GM(?), checked on us frequently, I mentioned my workplace also had the fly problem; there was no acknowledgement, nor my Open Table reservations which I indicated the special occasion was...

No downside to this restaurant in downtown Napa. Enjoyed beautifully crafted dishes in a warm and friendly atmosphere. Don't pass this one by.

I have eaten here many times, with my wife, with winery owners, friends and family. Service has always been very good, people are friendly, food is wonderful and the pricing is more than reasonable and fair.

We visited here during Fourth of July weekend. Our friends had been here two night before and the waiter not only remembered them, he remembered what they ordered! I had the halibut which was delicious. I highly recommend this reataurant!

Our first visit to this bistro was nothing short of amazing. We can't remember a finer meal. Be sure to start with the empanadas - light, fresh and flavorful. Scallops and halibut are 2 of the toughest seafoods to get right but this chef knocked them both out of the park! The sides were equally delicious from the cauliflower potato... More
