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 spot on the river - downtown Napa”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

The food was excellent, the service great and the location perfect! I would highly recommend visiting this restaurant! It is so comfy and has a great covered outdoor patio. They keep it plenty warm with heat lamps which is nice for the ladies in their dresses ;) This is a perfect spot to spend a nice night with great food, wine and company.

My wife and I dine out a quite a bit and appreciate good fine dining at reasonable prices. We have been visiting Napa on an annual basis for a few years and generally stay 2 or 3 nights. We have been overlooking Angele for whatever reason, maybe because we didn’t think we were that fond of French cuisine based on past experiences at home and on the road. We had tried Bouchon Bistro in Yountville and were not impressed.
After looking over the menu at Angele we decided to try the 6 course tasting menu with wine paring. We discussed with our server some likes and dislikes and sat in anticipation. A few minutes later he arrived with 2 glasses of wine which were pared to our first dish. We were surprised to find out that we each had a different type of wine. Our server explained that we were about to experience 2 completely different dinners! Just the sound of that impressed us. Each course we had was similar to each other’s but different dishes eg. One had sole and the other cod, one had pork and the other duck and so on. Every course down to dessert was fantastic and the wine paring was near perfect!
Maybe this happened because it was a week night and they were not too busy. Our next visit to Napa will definitely include Angele and we might have to ask for a quiet night lol. This went down as one of the best restaurant experience we have ever had! Thanks Angele! See you next year.

“Mothers Day on the river in Napa.”
Reviewed May 13, 2014 via mobile

We've been to many great restaurants in Napa and now Angele is on our list of one of our favorites. We were given a great seat on the outdoor patio with a view of the river. Very friendly staff and we would recommend the fresh bread and pastry basket along with the steak and egg lunch entre. Can't wait to go back.

“French Dining”
Reviewed May 11, 2014

We dined outside and found it great. It was beautiful, warm evening. The service was good although I felt that we were rushed through dinner. Our main course came much sooner than expected. My Faux Fillet was not cooked to my directions. My table mate's gnocchi was bland and not flavorful. The best part of the whole meal was the desserts. The crime brûlée was too warm and not creamy enough.

“Good but not exceptional”
Reviewed April 29, 2014

This restaurant was recommended to us by a server at one of the wineries. The service was fine, the food was good, the wine list comprehensive. There was really nothing, though, that would command me to return there and considering there are so many wonderful restaurants in Napa, I would give this a pass my next time around. A friend and I shared the country pate and found it disappointing. The salads we had, while flavorful, contained ingredients that were difficult to get onto a fork. All in all, just sort of a "meh" experience....
