    A friend of mine recommended The Grove at Copia and since we have been dining all over Napa, we finally decided to go because we seen a menu we were able to try, so we made reservations and we truly enjoyed the splendor of the school and restaurant. The vegetables were fresh and the 32 ounce steak with red onions and potatoes on side was amazing. The cheesecake was delicious! The cherries were freshly picked and very sweet. The staff did an awesome job serving my wife and I. Thank you for the outstanding service and hospitality of your restaurant.

    Unfortunately, and unbeknownst to us, we had reservations on graduation night for CIA, so there were several large parties ahead of us. We waited to be seated and waited an hour for our meal. The manager came and explained the delays in service which our wait staff seemed unable to handle. The meals were good, although the rockfish was salty, and the complimentary desserts were a mixed bag. Since there are so many excellent restaurants in the Napa area, we wouldn’t return to this one.

    Wagyu Cote De Boeuf; One of the best meals we’ve had so far in the Wine Country. Mascarpone Cheesecake was only surpassed by the outstandingly flavorful cherries that were served with it. We are only sorry that we don’t live nearby so we could partake again and again!

    Colin was a terrific guide to helping us select from the scrumptious offerings at The Grove! We had a wonderful set of starters (focaccia, oyster mushrooms, fresh salad), flavorful entrees (rockfish, Denver steak), and lovely desserts (tiramisu, fresh citrus tart). I would readily return here again on our next trip to Napa!

    Dishes are way too salty. Salad with too much sour dressing. for the whole day the following, throats were dry like on fire, drank lots of water. Servers are courteous and attentive. Ambience is excellent. Just food is not to my taste. Too heavy and way too salty. Maybe just my personal preference

    This was seriously the best meal I have had in a very long time while eating out. The CIA at Copia doesn’t disappoint. We will be back again and again❤️. We had a guest chef which was the event we attended and Jennifer Jasinski was the guest chef. Everything we had was spectacularly made. The chef came out after each course and made sure we were doing good, which almost every time I was almost embarrassed as it felt like I ate it so fast but then was almost licking the plate😂. Each course was fresh, flavorful, perfect temperature and just plain yummy. We have been to the CIA at Copia before for dinner and brunch - we have never been disappointed with anything, the environment is also so calming - just lovely.

    Enjoyed a great chef's dinner. Our server was outstanding. Personable and well informed. The blackened cod was perfection. The goat cheese pierogi was delicious. The chocolate/caramel Burano was to die for. Enjoyed speaking with the chef regarding Riesling wines. All in all a wonderful evening.

    We had a great food and wine experience at this guest chef experience last night. I usually don’t like the automatic service charge being added to a bill but on this evening 20% was not adequate for the level of service provided. We also loved our visit from Sarah ( winemaker ) and Susan ( chef from New Orleans). We left feeling that the $400 for two was a real value. Congratulations to the whole team and especially Allie our server although the whole team made the experience top level🏆🏆

    Not at all impressed. Food was subpar. Foccacia bread looked delicious but was cold and dry. There were four of us. Ordered the steak, rockfish and carbonara. Not one of us cared for our meal. Steak not worth $42, carbonara was very dry and sticky. However, our server was excellent - the busser not so much. She spilled quite a bit of water, looked bothered as if it was our fault, and was left there throughout the meal. The dessert was okay. Will not be returning and would not recommend.

    My dining experience at the grove was better I have anticipated, some of the farm-to-table cuisine options are great, and it was a refreshing journey through locally sourced flavors. The menu highlighted seasonal ingredients, creating a vibrant and diverse culinary palette. The elegant but approachable ambiance perfectly complemented the ethos of farm-fresh dining. The attentive staff provided insights into the origins of each ingredient, adding a layer of connection to the food. Overall, The Grove stands out as a beacon of sustainability and culinary excellence, making it a must-visit for those who appreciate the true essence of a contemporary farm-to-table dining.

    We were fortunate to be sat at the kitchen chef’s table (bar) as one of our guests was a 12yr old who has significant interest in becoming a chef someday. The team was wonderful in every aspect. They interacted with us and chef Deborah even gave our little guy a white Toque for his enjoyment and his excitement was palpable. Colin took great care of us. Will be back for sure. Quote from the kids “that was the best meal I’ve ever had”. Memorable for sure. Thank you again.

    Vegan choices on a Prix Fixe? Yes, and thank you! Every course had a vegan option and I must say the Lion's Mane Steak was fabulous, albeit a little spicy, but that's just me cause I have a sensitive tummy. However, that did not stop me from eating it!

    The Grove was outstanding! We went for brunch (party of 4) and were impressed by the variety and creativity of the menu - including the brunch cocktails. Everyone there showed a genuine passion for their craft and were the epitome of hospitality. The restaurant had recently been remodeled and it is beautiful - I loved the color palate. It was also fun to visit the Chuck Williams museum upstairs and to check out the garden. We will definitely return next time we’re in Napa.

    We had a fantastic meal at The Grove. The food, service, and atmosphere were all perfect. Because it was Restaurant Week, we ordered from the prix fixe menu. Because there were two or three options per course, our family of three was able to sample everything. We will be back!
