Napa River Grill Restaurant Review: A brightly hued mural of hilly California wine country dominates the dining room at Napa River Grill, providing a scenic backdrop when the weather doesn’t permit dining on the vine-covered flagstone patio. As the name suggests, West Coast and Pacific Rim flavor sensibilities dominate the menu. You can easily make a meal with a selection of starters, including ahi nachos topped with wasabi aïoli, crab and avocado with lime tortilla chips, cornmeal-crusted calamari, or cheese and charcuterie plates. Or share one of these and move on to such main dishes as mango-chili salmon, a Prime rib-eye with bacon-infused mashed potatoes, or pork dressed in sorghum gremolata. Not surprisingly, California wines dominate the reasonably priced list and many are available by the glass. Able servers are happy to make pairing suggestions. Desserts tend toward the fruity, with offerings such as berry crisp and strawberry ice box cake.
