One of my favorite restaurants – I truely enjoy dining here. I had their preset tasting menu on my last visit and it was exquisite. The rabbit bratwurst was great and something that was new to me and the short ribs are out of this world as well. Their wine list is good I would prefer a few more selections but for its size, its outstanding. Also the wine knowledge of the staff is great.
Wonderful dining experience, no Mickey Mouse-ing around – Everything was really wonderful about this place...food, wine list, decor, and service. I had the Grilled 16oz Pork "Porterhouse" Chop and it was excellent and the wine went perfectly with the entree. There was an unexpected delay with the dessert, but the waiter was very attentive and he brought us free dessert drinks, which were great. (We didn't even ask him for it but he brought it anyway)
Simply the finest restaurant on the planet! – As a self-described "foodie", who pretends to be Andrew Sutton on weekends, I can tell you that this is the best food I have enjoyed anywhere! The atmosphere and service are unsurpassed, and did I mention the food?? Andrew is a genius! Although not as recognized as Jean-Georges or some of the Food Network clones, his creations are a magnificient, mind-blowing, mouth-watering experience! I have been to Napa Rose no less than 8 times in the past 3 years and I live 450 miles away from the restaurant. Even better than Masa's in S.F., or Joel Robuchon's duo at the MGM in Vegas. The only negative thing I can say about Napa Rose is that it is not the best place for kids. They do a great job with the "kid food" thing, but kids do not want to wait 1 1/5 - 2 hours to eat pizza.
To fully experience everything this place has to offer, ask for the "kitchen seats" and talk to Andrew and his staff while they create their masterpieces.
Best anniversary spot ever – I took my husband here for our 10th anniversary in December. Relaxed at the bar prior to seating. Absolutely everything was amazing at Napa Rose, from the wine list to the food and our beyond perfection waiter-Saucy, thank you! Pork chops and scallops were to die for and our dessert was presented on plates with "Happy Anniversary" written in chocolate. This is the place to go whether you're a Disney fan or not. Romantic, beautiful and sensual. This is one place that is worth every penny!!!
Great Food, Great Customer Service – We went there for my friend's birthday and at the end of it he said this is the best bday dinner he has ever had. This place beats it all. Great food, great service!!! just amazing..everything was so perfect. This is a night we will never forget... my friend kept joking with his wife that he is gonna divorce her and marry the chef for his amazing food. We were at the chef's counter. I dont think we would have enjoyed it as much if we were seated at the tables. Try the cheese platter, they have some awesome cheese and wine selections.
Top cuisine, service, and extensive wine list--what's not to like? – Napa Rose gets everything right--with few or no glitches. The service is attentive, warm and accommodating; the cuisine is varied and top-quality; and the wine list offers extensive choices for any wine lover, highlighting the best California's wineries have to offer. (Napa Rose servers have wine training and can expertly guide the wine novice to ideal food pairings and great wine values.) While the Napa Rose experience does not come cheap, it's well worth the price--a great dining destination for special occasions, and a perfect end to a day at Disneyland.
With Napa Valley-inspired cuisine and more than 600 bottles of wine, this restaurant ain't Mickey Mouse-ing around. – The Scene
With a window overlooking Grizzly Peak, Napa Rose furthers the Grand Californian's Arts and Crafts theme with light-colored woods, autumnal colors and murals of vineyard scenes celebrating the Golden State's wine-producing regions. The restaurant's wine cellar boast 600 vintages, most from California.
An ambitious menu showcases innovative California ingredients like mineshaft-ripened blue cheese, Sierra golden trout and grapevine-smoked salmon. Starters like goat cheese-stuffed grape leaves in a creamy roast pepper sauce and a rich portobello mushroom bisque "cappuccino" gilded by a brandied thyme-froth jump-start the taste buds. Main courses further enthrall: Yellowtail is perfectly grilled, then bathed in creamy, tart-sweet mango sauce; prime rib pork loin--two ribs deep, steeped in a complex "chaparral" sauce (a blend of sage, rosemary, thyme and cayenne)--earns its signature status. Ultrarich chocolate pâté falls somewhere between mousse and a flour-less chocolate cake and is garnished with a dollop of sweet hazelnut cream.
romantic haven in the midst of disneyland madness – Superb service - never once had to wait for anything we desired. Menu had a large variety of dishes, sure to please. Food was absolutely divine.
Great Food and Service – Ate here on 5/26/05. We reserved a seat at the Chef's Counter in advance. We took the option of having chef Andrew Sutton fix a dinner just for us, and it was terific. Sat next to a local couple (it was the guy's birthday) and they told me i had made a good choice. We had the wine pairings, and our sommolier was Mike, who I think was also the manager(talk about getting good service), whose choices were just right for us. Also had fun watching the pastry chef make great looking deserts, and the ringside seat got us answers to our questions as we watched them prepare the foods for everyone. This was a perfect end to a week of convention activities (we were at the AACN Critical Care Convention).
Wonderful Dining Experience! – Our servant has a great knowledge of wines; just tell him what you prefer and he will pick one that is exactly what you like! We had a $48 appetizer for two to share which include lobster, salmon,caviar, sturgeon, truffled Quail egg, and oyster. By the way, their complimentary bread is so good with four varities. My Prix Fixed $75 w/o wine was nicely presented but the taste could be better for a top quality restaurant like this; and my friend had a King Salmon which was so tender and soft on the inside and crispy / sweet on the outside. Had lemon creme brulee - it taste so good with the raspberry underneath it and I had chocolate almond tart (w/ my Prix Fixed) which was a little bit too sweet, but was a very nice dessert with mint chocolate ice cream on top. Overall, a very nice experience!
