    Our dining experience was far below previous visits. The menu has changed and we found the food to be far below the standard we had previously experienced. The service was also lacking. It didn’t seem they were adequately staffed to provide the service we had previously had.

    Super disappointed with what was done to the outdoor seating area - feels like you’re in the parking lot. Ordered two drinks from the menu - both were poorly prepared. Food was good however the pricing for was exorbitant. Have been to Napa many times and have always enjoyed it however this latest experience will push it down on my list of considerations in the future.

    Napa River continues to be a favorite. The service is terrific. This past visit surprised me because the menu has changed while retaining some old favorites. The lobster sliders are now a new favorite! If you have not been to Napa River, go.

    We had the Seared Salmon with broccoli as a side and the Bucatini Nero. Salmon is my friend’s favorite at Napa and the very generous portion was cooked perfectly. Not a morsel left on his plate. Great presentation for the sauteed shrimp dish. The flavors and different textures melded perfectly. I will definately have this dish again. I also look forward to tasting the other new entrees on the menu!

    Didn't realize the brunch was a buffet--my bad. Might be a good idea for the restaurant to update its website to describe and advertise the brunch? The website makes no mention of brunch at all. The buffet was good, and offered both breakfast and lunch options. This is a good choice if you have a group of big eaters, but a little pricey (understandably) for fans of small portions. Good location. Easy parking. No wait required.

    We like Napa river grill. Just want to offer some feedback on one item. The Caesar salad used to be one of the best in town and now not so much. The dressing and lettuce quality has changed. My wife and I both think it needs to go back to the old dressing and preparation. Just our opinion though. Service was really good and our dinners were great last night, the Salmon and shrimp were both good. See you soon.

    They honor your reservation requests, the ambiance is nice, and the restaurant is clean. The food, however, has been inconsistent. I’ve eaten here twice in 3 months and while the foods on the menu were the same, they differed entirely between my first and second experiences.

    We sat on the patio for a Saturday evening date. There were only 2 umbrellas so most tables were in full sun. A large party next to us asked to move inside because it was too hot. It has a nice outdoor bar but it was closed. Limited menu options available however what we ordered was very good ( sushi nachos, cheeseburger, beet salad, and chocolate cake to go) the cocktails were good but overall everything was very overpriced. We frequented this restaurant when it was on DuPont circle. I’m sad to say we probably won’t go back again.

    This was a slow evening for Napa so the noise was quite low. The food was excellent with a goat cheese starter. My two companions split the special which was a steak for two and they bot agreed it was one of the best they had ever tasted. I had delicious tomato soup with a cobb salad that was just enough and very tasty. Desert was crème brûlée and it was just enough as well. Not cheap but everything was worth the cost.
