A truly memorable experience... – I have been lucky enough to eat at a number of the greatest restaurants all over the world in my life, and I was blown away by this place! The ambiance was cozy yet so classy. The lighting set a wonderful mood. The service was close to perfect. The wine list was incredible, slightly overpriced but I mean come on it's an amuesment park, What do you expect? As for the food everything was mouthwatering. Each dish was colorful, interesting, and was like an orgasm in my mouth. One of my new favorites. I can't wait to go back : )
Great restaurant, but overpriced – For those of you who are looking for a great OC restaurant... you have to understand that Orange County does not know great food; so there are few good FINE DINING restaurants. Of the fine dining restaurants in the area, this is one of the good ones. I would not listen to many of these reviews because they are written by people who have grown up in a "good-food ridden" Orange County. Napa Rose, along with Pinot Provence is the top restaurant in Orange County. Order the fois gras for appetizer, the duck or lamb for entree and u MUST get the chocolate "pate" for dessert. also has a very nice open kitchen.
Better than Ever – Napa Rose is better than anything else in Anaheim if not OC. We had a large group and had a fantastic dinner last week. Chef Andrew has really worked wonders in the kitchen.
Best of Wine Country in So Cal... – As a frequent diner at Terra, French Laundry and La Toque in Napa Valley, I must admit the food at Napa Rose was definitely a pleasant surprise and certainly can hold its own against the best of NoCal. Even though the atmosphere is Disney-like and certainly lacks the rustic charms of some of its counterparts, one must remember that the reason we go to restaurants is for great food, wine and service. This place has all three areas covered. I would definitely recommend this place over all other restaurants I've been to in OC including Pinot Provence and the Ritz-Carlton. Try the lamb shank, prime pork rib, or the salmon. For dessert, I'd recommend the chocolate "decadence" or the pate. If you've got a larger party, I'd stay away from the price fix menu and instead order different entrees. You definitely get to taste more of everything that way.
highly overrated – this feels like hotel dining; in other words, the food here is just too safe. Places like Pinot Provence, Aubergine and Gustaf Anders have better food, not to mention ambience.
Exquisite!!! – Both times were flawless and a wonderful experience. The food and presentation were exceptional. Portions are very small and the menu is always changing by season. Both servers were very knowledgable about wine and food selections. Must try the deserts. (I recommend the lemon creme brule and banana cheesecake)
A Local Viewpoint – I am a local in Anaheim, and expect nothing but the best when it comes to fine dining. I also expect the best from Disney.
Try the Vintner's Table (with or without the wine) - you will not be disappointed.
Great, But Not Excellent – I was expecting to be wowed. While the overall presentation and food were good, even great, it wasn't all it's cracked up to be. The experience started off on the wrong foot when the hostess was overly dismissive of our request for a booth, even though we had mentioned it at the time we made our reservations. Our server was very nice and accomodating, but I didn't feel like he had any real knowledge about wine. The Seven Sins appetizer selection was good, but beware that the portions really are geared to only two people. Splitting anything beyond that will take a lot of extra effort. The goat cheese in grape leaves were just that: goat cheese in grape leaves. For an entree, I recommend the rabbit--it was delightful.
Simply divine! – A fabulous food extravaganza. We were guests at the hotel, but had a difficult time getting reservations because it was so booked. The hostess graciously found us a table however. The service was impecable. The food was amazing. I had the portebella crepes which I highly recomend. This restaurant is truly a treasure and it is hard to believe it is located in the heart of Disneyland!!
