The Napa Tavern Restaurant Review

: The Napa Tavern’s menu is versatile, and its farm-to-table philosophy is emphasized by the servers. Among small plates are prosciutto and asparagus crostini, a rather bland ahi poke, and smoked duck pâté with truffle oil. There are also a handful of pizzas cooked in a wood-burning oven, salads and sides. Entrées include a free-range half-chicken roasted with sage and lemon, a ten-ounce filet mignon crusted with blue cheese, and seared diver scallops served over Parmesan risotto. Overall execution in the kitchen is lacking finesse, an observation that also applies to the dessert course. Though the wine list is surprisingly short, there are quite a few gems from the Napa Valley. Overall, the setting is pleasant, as beamed ceilings, terra-cotta-tile floors, vintage photos of Napa Valley and an inviting wine bar fill the space of this shopping center-adjacent eatery.
