Nice atmosphere but the food was less than average. I had a barrata and tomato salad with arugula and prosciutto. There was very little arugula which was fine because it wasn’t good. The tomato was entirely without taste and hard. The prosciutto was good and...there was a huge portion of barrata but that was it. If you like just eating barrata with nothing else, you might have liked it.More

How can you go wrong on a lovely patio across from the Veterans Park and on the Napa River. We shared a delicious short rib dinner and wonderful green salad that was a meal in itself. Then we finished with the decadent flourless chocolate cake...and creme brûlée. Ask for Jay. He’s the best!More

Stopped on a whim, because we observed the great care being put into spacing and cleanliness while preparing to open. The setting itself is great- road has been blocked for foot traffic only, spot its really cool and peaceful on this corner at the riverfront...park. The food was fabulous. I could tell everything was fresh and clean- WOW on the crab cake. It was served upon a pile of crazy wonderful cabbage slaw that was as good as the Dungeness blend atop it. Partners Omellete was perfect. Potatoes perfectly crisp and hot yet moist inside. Great FUME drink- you gotta try this wonderful spin on a different old fashioned. We will be back for sure. This restaurant has it all over the others in this area- fair prices and good service, clean and fresh food. Socially distanced and safe.More

This was our first visit to this restaurant. DELICIOUS. First, they know how to make a great martini. As for food, the calamari was good. The seafood with linguini was absolutely delicious. The crab cake and cesear salad were both of ample size to make...a complete meal. The staff are friendly and attentive. Great experience.More

We stopped in for lunch on a weekday and when we first got there, we were the first for lunch. But within 20 mins or so, there were several other tables sat. Our server was friendly and very helpful; in fact, we let her pick...our appetizer and entrees. The guacamole was excellent, creamy, not chunky and the accompanying chips (which are housemade) were really nicely done, not greasy nor overly salty and very tasty! Their brisket sandwich was awesome and came with an incredible mustard sauce that offered a very nice tang from its heat. The salmon was incredible… prepared perfectly and with an excellent piccata sauce. Definitely would return for lunch!!More

We stumbled upon this place and we were glad we did. We sat outside and soaked in the sun. Near perfect weather. We ordered ahi tuna sandwiche/fries along with salad plus chicken. To wash it down, we ordered 2 beers and 1 glass of wine....The food was excellent. The focaccia bread which came with the sandwich was fresh. The fries arrived piping hot. Excellent. Service was excellent. Do you see a pattern here? Highly recommended.More

In some ways, I'm enjoying this pandemic. Less traffic, easy reservations, great food, and beautiful outdoor dining. Napkins Bar & Grill in Napa, nailed it on all accounts. Our server, Jazmine was great. Her knowledge of the menu and recommendations helped make this a special...evening dinner for my wife and I. Compliments to the Chef for some very good and unique offerings. My wife had the Vegetarian Wellington and loved it, while I enjoyed a more traditional dish of Linguine-Shrimp. For dessert, there was a new item on the menu that we would highly recommend, Peach and Blackberry Crisp, a la mode. Wow, sooooo good. Again, complements to the Chef!More

We had a great experience! The food was delicious. We ordered the Citrus Habanero Chicken and Rib Eye Steak. The Chicken wasn’t too spicy and the Rib Eye was cooked well. Our waitress was very kind, attentive and make great recommendations.
