My husband and I usually go to Napa Grille for dinner, but today we went for lunch (my Love's birthday - when they heard this they said they had a special dessert to serve, but he declined - not a "sweet" eater). As always - friendly service and delcious food. We ordered a bottle of Andeluna Malbec to start. We split the Spinach salad (spinach with strawberries, pistachio nuts, and goat cheese with a white balsamic dressing - Fantastic fresh flavour) - brought to the table already split on two separate plates. For our mains, my husband had the California burger (comes with brie, avacodo, etc.) and sweet potato fries. I had the pulled pork on sourdough bun with slaw and sweet potato fries. (Neither of us could eat all the fries, and only ate half the bun). The food here is soooo good - definitely one of our favourites in Cambridge.

We went to the Napa Grille for the first time a month ago and had a good meal, so we decided to invite friends of ours to join us there last night.

We made a reservation for 7:30pm and arrived on time. They have no dedicated greeter, but after 5 minutes or so someone came to the front door area and asked us to wait in the bar area until our table was ready. At 7:50pm a waiter came and took us to our table. It wasn't until 8:10pm, when we had already decided to leave, and were just getting up from the table that a waiter came back to take our first drink order.

We don't mind having to wait for a table, but when a restaurant accepts reservations, this seems like far to long of a wait. The wait probably wouldn't have seemed so long if we could have ordered drinks while we waited, but at no point in the first 40 minutes that we were in the restaurant did any staff offer to take drink orders from us. We would have been willing to just order from the bartender, as they had us wait in the bar area for our table to be ready, however there wasn't a bartender behind the bar during the time we were there.

Overall, a very frustrating experience, as we had to find another restaurant to eat at.

Fantastic food at good price!! Love this place and go every time for special occasions and just because. The Lobster Agnollati is to die for, huge claws in buttery pillows of ricotta cheese, and only 28 dollars. Best deal ever and delicious. Mussels are fantastic and the cesar salad is the best anywhere.

3 of us had the daily special, "Surf and Turf", and the steak was small and tough, the lobster tail flavorless, and the "grilled" shrimp on a skewer tasted as if they had been boiled for until any flavor disappeared.
One person had carpaccio and a pasta main course, both from the menu, and thought the carpaccio was good and the pasta okay.
The restaurant was very busy and seemed to be short on servers, but otherwise okay. It seems like it needs someone to finish it both in decor and food. I hope that they are able to do that.
