This is not meant to be a flame thread... but...
Does anyone else think that Napa Rose is really overrated? I went there for the first time and while the food was good, I felt like it was a typical "hotel" fine dining establishment (yes, I realize it is indeed IN A HOTEL).
The ambiance left A LOT to be desired for me. Maybe I got seated at a bad table, but with the high ceilings and somewhat sterile decor, I couldn't help but feel like I was in a Las Vegas buffet dining room. For fine dining, I am used to a more dimly lit, intimate environment.
The service was fine, but not great. And the food was the same. Good but not great. I dunno, maybe I was expecting too much based on some things I've read. I would love to hear some other opinions.
