    We chose Napa for our graduation celebration and they did not disappoint. Great menu, and service! There were other parties there and we did not hear them, and it did not interfere with our table conversation. Would highly recommend!

    Overall, everything was great. We were not aware that the buffet was the only option (wish that had been included when we made the reservation), but it was a good buffet with plenty of offerings. Service was just a tad slow given the size of the crowd and the fact that it was a buffet, but again, overall is was a great dining experience and I definitely recommend it and will be back!

    This was my third or fourth time at Napa River and this far exceeded the previous times. The food was amazing and the choices were outstanding. The service was great by Alaina and kudos to the pastry chef. The mini cheesecake bites were perfection. Even my picky son raved about the food

    The Derby week menu with food options was delicious. We arrived at 4:15pm on Thurby. Our guest from Texas loved the menu, flowers on the table, and wait staff. Filling my water glass on a continual basis is one of my favorite services. Did I mention, the water tasted delicious. Definitely filtered.

    Just OK sums it up. Servers doing the best they could but clearly under staffed. I had to go to the bar to get my drink. We sat outside on a lovely evening which helped a lackluster experience.

    We were celebrating our anniversary and had reservations at 7. We waited to be seated because no one was at the hostess station. We waited about 10-15 minutes for drinks and waited an additional 10-15 minutes for the next round. The ambiance was more like a family style restaurant vs fine dining or a romantic vibe. The food was ok, but not great. Our server was very nice when she was there but either they were short staffed or she had too many tables because she just wasn’t that present. We left before dessert and went elsewhere for that. This place was just disappointing. I doubt we’ll be back.

    Our meals were terrific, and the staff did a great job, but it looked like they were short staffed—Thunder Over Louisville and COVID probably the cause. The Pad Thai was terrific, as was the pork chop and the Vietnamese salad. Wonderful wine, too. Hope everyone who worked this night received a special treat.

    Lousy food. None of our four dinners were good. In fact, quality snd preparation were both poor. They had the air conditioner blasting on a cold evening in early April. Out waitress response was “ I’m sorry” but never had it turned down. It was miserable to eat with four of us shivering! We all remembered why we had not been back in years.
