“Great, great, great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2009

I never expect much from a restaurant located in the same parking lot of a hotel... Boy, was I surprised! All four meals ordered were excellent - portions were perfect in size and we even saved room for dessert!

“A yummy bargain on Wednesdays”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 19, 2009

If you find yourself in Napa on a Wednesday evening, don't miss the bargains at Cuvee.

First, in the lounge they have a happy hour (actually Mon - Fri) from 4 pm until 7 pm. $5 wines - half price liquor - $5 appetizer menu. Had two Bombay Sapphire Martinis plus wonderful calamari for $20 including tip. You must place the orders in the lounge - happy hour doesn't extend to the dining room.

On Wednesday, there is a special - $33 for three courses. You can pick anything from the appetizer/salad menu, anything from the entree menu ($7 up charge for short ribs), and anything from the dessert menu. Just $33. They also waive corkage fees on Wednesday so take your own wine for a great dinner.

We ordered the frissee/sauteed apple/blue cheese/walnut salad and the duck lettuce wraps. The salad was a wonderful experience in varying flavors and textures. The duck took a while to arrive but our waiter warned it takes more time to prepare than any of the other appetizers. The dish was delicious but was entree sized - not a small appetizer size!

We had the salmon and the skirt steak for entrees. Again, both were well prepared and deliciious.

Desserts were a chocolate sundae and a chocolate/hazelnut creme brulee. Delicious ending.

Our waiter was great - good suggestions, attentive service, and well versed in wine. He recognized the winery for the wine we brought and gave us some additional background information. He even provided a good suggestion for sightseeing the next day.

I thought they must offer this deal on Wednesdays because it was a slow night. If they did, it worked. Every table was full at 7 pm. Consider reservations....

Good food, good service; good ambiance; good deal. I'll be back if I can.

PS - The restaurant is two doors north of the new Westin hotel in Napa.

We had a very nice dinner at Cuvee this weekend. The atmosphere was quiet and cosy, the service was just right, and the food was very delicious. We would definitely had a meal here again.
