Description: Our name comes from the Turkish word for "field," and that's where every dish starts for us: in the riches the earth yields. We source our ingredients locally, seasonally, and organically as often as possible to create our Mediterranean fusion dishes. Bringing together Greek and Turkish cuisine, we're proud to serve a unique combination of flavors and styles you won't find anywhere else. Paired with our extensive wine list, craft beer from our microbrewery, or a Turkish coffee, there's no better way to unwind after a day in Napa Valley, or simply treat yourself to something different.

“Small place, great food, great atmosphere”
Reviewed September 30, 2012

The concierge at the hotel suggested Tarla after we said that we wanted someplace casual since we would be coming from a day long wine tour (see my review of Platypus). It was just what we wanted; cozy and warm yet personal. We were fortunate to have been seated at the bar right in front of the kitchen. It was facinating to watch how much food is cooked/served within such a small place by 4-5 chefs. The special appetizer of the evening was a heirloom tomato salad which looked incredible but was quite large. We started with the zucchini cakes which were quite good. Unfortunately (or fortunately) we both wanted the same entree - the short ribs on a bed of risotto. The short ribs were tender, flavorful and the sauce that was poured over the ribs and risotto was absolutely delicious - rich with flavor and perfect over the risotto. We did not order any wine. We had enough on the wine tour but plenty was poured at other tables. Our total without wine was around $60 with tip. Well worth it.

“Ok food, not fantastic”
Reviewed September 29, 2012

Good service, food good but not great. We love Mediterranean food, and grew up eating it weekly. This place would rank as mediocre for quality and taste.

“Mediterranean Grill”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Had lunch at this Mediterranean restaurant. It was very busy by 11:45AM. Ordered typical Mediterranean (Turkish) food which we hadn't eaten in several months. The food was tasty as expected & due to the lunch hour service was a little slower than it would have been during a less busy time period. Prices were in line with the Napa area ---- with tip $41. I think this is a little higher for this type of food but in Napa they seem to get higher prices at popular restaurants.

We would recommend eating at this restaurant if you enjoy this type of food & even if you don't you would find the food to be flavorful.

“Incredible experience with great food and excellent service”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

A few locals recommended Tarla. With many options in and around Napa, we debated other options. Decided on Tarla. Ate at the bar. Had flaming cheese (awesome) and halibut (loved it). Also, if you like cab, def try Reckless. You won't be disappointed.

“Delicious lunch”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

We sat outside and enjoyed our lunch. Chicken kabobs were excellent. All four us would return. Just a couple of doors down from the Andaz hotel.
