Description: Angèle Restaurant & Bar is an intimate restaurant perched above the Napa River. The 155-seat restaurant is the realization of the Rouas family's dream to create a refuge that offers delicious French country foods, wines, and occasions for celebration with friends and family. With all-day service within the 80-seat rustic yet elegant dining room and on the 75-seat riverfront terrace, celebration is ongoing. Together the Rouas family have designed an oasis where a European sensibility of food and wine captures the true essence of joie de vivre.

“Great French food along Napa River”
Reviewed March 23, 2014

Angele continues to get better and better. We have eaten here many times, and it shows that they are working to improve food and service. We needed a quiet table, and we were given a lovely table in a small room in the back. All of our dinners were wonderful - Pate de Campagne appetizer, Beet Salad, Gnocchi, Mustard Crusted Pork Chop and Scallops. We also had some good wines from a French Sancerre to a California Pinot Noir. All together a lovely and enjoyable evening, thanks to Angele.

“Very pleasant spot for lunch”
Reviewed March 20, 2014

Angèle is a small French bistro that occupies a renovated historic ship chandlery within the Napa Mill complex on the downtown Napa River waterfront. It has a country/rustic indoor dining room and bar with high beam ceilings and a few tables offering views of the water, plus an adjoining outdoor cabana-like space for al fresco dining. It is open daily and is served by the Napa Mill free parking lot. The lunch menu includes soups, salads, sandwiches, and a selection of heartier entrees. Be sure to try the French fries for which Angèle is known--skin-on and fried very crisp. Delicious! Service was attentive. On the minus side, we thought the portions were pretty small for the price charged.

I was there with a group of colleague for an informal dinner. The location is rustic with a long bar and some tables for food. The service was good, the wine and beer were good, but the food....
Two of us ordered, what they call a Filet de Porc. However, it was not filet. Beside the poor meat, they served beans, both were dry and cold. We could not eat them. The desert was better, but also had nothing to do with French cuisine. Not a place we will visit again.
From my table, I could see the cooks (?) coming out of the kitchen. No wonder, they don't know how to cook french.
