Napa River Grill Restaurant Review

: West Coast and Pacific Rim flavors dominate the Napa River Grill menu. In its dining room is a colorful mural of hilly California wine country, providing a scenic backdrop when the weather doesn’t permit dining on the vine-covered flagstone patio. Make a meal from a selection of starters, including ham-and-cheese tartine, crab and avocado with lime tortilla chips, cornmeal-crusted calamari or cannellini bean hummus. Heirloom tomatoes with aged balsamic and fresh basil is a fine choice. Mains include smoked brisket with black-eyed peas, fennel-dusted grilled salmon, and --- for vegetarians (and omnivores) --- a savory vegetable ratatouille lasagna. As you might expect, California wines dominate the reasonably priced list and many are available by the glass. Waitstaff are happy to make pairing suggestions. Desserts tend toward the fruity, with offerings such as berry crisp and strawberry ice box cake.
