Description: Aged for almost 30 years in the Napa Valley… Since its beginnings as a local gathering spot over 29 years ago, Mustards Grill has blossomed into a destination for all who appreciate memorable food, superb wines and a warm welcome. Mustards food is Chef/Owner Cindy Pawlcyn’s mix of American regional dishes with global influences. The list of “Way Too Many Wines” represents the best from appellations throughout California and the New World. Mustards is an American Grill, featuring flavors from around the globe. The wood-burning grill produces such favorites as Cindy’s famous Mongolian Pork Chop, chipotle –rubbed Quail, and the ½ pound Niman Ranch hamburger. The oakwood smoker fills the restaurant with aromas of BBQ baby back ribs and tea-smoked Peking duck. Specialties include Seared Ahi Tuna on sesame crackers and Crispy Calamari tossed with curried slaw. The eclectic wine list features hard to find gems from California, the American Northwest, & South America.

“Lucky enough to get in without a reservation!”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

We happened upon this place driving back to our B&B after a day of visiting the wineries. At the time we had no idea how famous it was. I guess we really lucked out. We started out with delicious onion peels piled high. My husband had the Asian chicken salad and I the pork chop. Wow it was all terrific. Wish we would have left some room for dessert. May be next time we visit Napa.

“Napa Valley Tried and True”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

My traveling companion remembered this spot from other trips, and when the lights went out in Napa (May 14), we drove north. They seated us early for our reservation which was wonderful, and our waiter was quite courteous. But the food was hit and miss. I enjoyed some wonderful crab cakes and a salad, but my companion was disappointed with her duck entree. A crazy lemon meringue pie desert (8" high?) had flavor, but in the end the size was off-putting. The place was jumping on a Weds night and looked more like locals than tourists. A little noisy for my taste but people looked like they were having fun.

We had reservations at 7:30 and were there promptly. They did not take us until 8:30. The manager said sorry and brought out chips which was a nice. We ordered Cobb wine as per waiter's recommendation and it was very good. We tried the duck which was smoked and good. I got the chicken breast sand which was simple but good. It came with homemade chips. Two people in the party got desserts. One was chocolate flour less cake and the other was an angel cake. They were not sharing as it was so good. The noise level is high and it is hard to hear. We were a party of 6 seated at a table for 4 which was uncomfortable. They do not have seatings for large parties. The prices were fair for the quality of the food. The service was good.

“Delicious lunch”
Reviewed June 3, 2014 via mobile

This was a return visit for us and we were not disappointed by our meal at one of our favorite Napa restaurants. The wine list is extensive. The asparagus salad and green garden soup delicious. The service was only fair compared with previous visits. Always a great vibe.

“Just good”
Reviewed June 3, 2014

I ate at Mustards 24 yrs. ago and it was exceptional, this time it was good, but nothing to write home about. My dinner was very good, my husband's just OK. Now if this restaurant was anywhere else it would be a very good, but there are so many excellent restaurants in Napa that it needs to up it's game.
