“Interesting & varied menu choices plus excellent service & atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

Three off us walked past many inviting restaurants but we settled on The Kitchen Door as they were having Vietnamese dishes on offer that night. The atmosphere & attitude is just like your mums kitchen - welcoming and open as long as needed.
The service was exceptional was relaxed, very professional staff who were up to a challenge when asked for slight alterations to the menu. this made it a fun evening, especially when Dave was trying ice cream with olive oil & sea salt -Yes, that was on the menu.
Napa has so many excellent places to eat and we were very pleased with the food, service, atmosphere, and the whole experience at The Kitchen Door.
Go tery, & enjoy.

“Great for large groups and small ones too”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

Located in the Oxbow Market place, the Kitchen Door has much competition for your food dollars. If I were just a couple, I'd eat at one of the awesome Mexican stalls, but with our group of 12, this was perfect. The pizzas were fabulous with fresh ingredients done right. The half hen delightful and pastas to make your mama smile.

You must go to the Oxbow Market. Don't leave this off your list!

“A Secret....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 11, 2012

Locals love The Kitchen Door at the Oxbow in Napa for a couple of reasons. The food is good and reasonably priced and there is no corkage charge to provide glassware and to pour the bottle of wine that you bring in to go along with your meal. So, it makes a reasonable meal even more so!

A real find!!

“Delicious - order the duck pate!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 5, 2012

After being recommended by our innkeeper we LOVED this place! My short back ribs were delicious and my husband loved his steak. But the standout for us was the duck pate appetiser.
Fantastic food, great service and value for money too.
